Hillary Clinton Clear Debate Winner
October 10, 2016
The Donald Trump we saw on stage tonight is the same Trump who has spent last 30 years demeaning women, avoiding taxes, and using dangerous and divisive rhetoric. Between incoherent ramblings and unfounded attacks, he described his past misogynistic remarks as “locker room talk,” admitted that he may not have paid income taxes, threatened to jail his opponent, denied Russia’s role in recent hacks, and threw his running mate under the bus.
Hillary Clinton, on the other hand, was presidential, steady, calm, and focused on offering real solutions to real people. That’s why, according to CNN, 57 percent of debate watchers declared her the winner. Only one of these two candidate is prepared to serve as president. We must elect Hillary Clinton on November 8th.
Trump Trashes Pence, Defends Assad, Channels Nixon
@mmurraypolitics:Trump tonight, per@DafnaLinzer: Split with Pence on Syria, threatened to jail opponent, admitted writing off $916M to pay no federal taxes
@joshgad:Trump, Great night. U threw your VP under the bus, called assault on women banter locker room talk, & celebrated that u don't pay taxes. Wow
@howardfineman:#Trump throws#Pence under the bus on Syria humanitarian crisis; defends #Assad totally.
@brianbeutler: .@DanaBashCNN just rightfully compared Trump’s promise to jail Clinton to African dictatorships, Stalin and Hitler.
@neeratanden: Even Nixon didn't threaten to use his attorney general to jail his political opponents.
@AriFleischer: Winning candidates don't threaten to put opponents in jail. Presidents don't threaten prosecution of individuals. Trump is wrong on this.
Trump Was A Walking Disaster
@morningmoneyben: Trump is just such a walking disaster. #debate
@ron_fournier: 1. Donald Trump knows he won't be president. He's now in full carnival-barking, network-launching, party-nuking mode:Donald Trump's Implosion
@ezraklein: Donald Trump has absolutely no idea what he is doing.
@jameshohmann: Trump is not stopping the bleeding. He's making it worse.
@TaraSetmayer: If there was any question that Trump was temperamentally unfit 2 be POTUS before tonight, that's been proven unequivocally now. #debate
@jbouie: We are watching a debate between the next president of the United States and a two year old.
@jeffzeleny: This is what scorched earth looks like. How many more Republican leaders will disavow Trump before the night ends? Ryan? McConnell?
Trump Doubled Down on Sexism and Divisiveness
@jameshohmann: Not a good line from Trump in context of video: “It’s just words, folks, it’s just words.”
@TheRickWilson: 1/ Tonight, Trump's fauxpology for the “locker room talk” was a moment where he put his neck in the noose.
@JessicaVelenti: Trump called bragging about sexual assault “just words” and “locker room talk.” Don't let that get lost tonight.#debate
@jonallendc: Donald Trump found a way to get beneath the dignity of Donald Trump.
@gdebenedetti: Pool: There was quiet laughter in the debate hall when Trump said he respects women.
@melissakchan: Folks who say Trump did well in this debate: we (women) noticed he doubled down on “locker room talk” and rape as “just words.”
