Trump lost his goddamned mind in this debate. Nobody in a western democracy threatens to jail their opponent on live TV. This guy wants to be Vladimir Putin. I literally cannot believe that reporters will talk about fine details of this or that exchange when an American candidate for President went gibbering insane in front of the country. Folks honestly need to contact your media outlets and complain every time someone acts like this is remotely normal behavior.
Also he said bragging about sexual assault was ok because ISIS is worse.
A couple random thoughts.
(1) Two scientific polls said that she won the debate. That is a relief, because the Luntz focus group was honestly wigging me out a little. Then I remembered that he must have dug pretty deep to find a double digit number of people who haven’t decided and never heard about the grab-her-crotch tape.
(2) Reading Michael Steele’s twitter feed is a surreal experience. In the top ten or twenty tweets he fist bumps Ezra Klein about Trump kneecapping his own VP and retweets Sipp E. Cupp trashing Trump for his bassackwards claim that Iran, Assad and Russia are targeting ISIS. As doc Tam once said while gazing up at a statue, this must be what going crazy feels like.
