Oh look. Donald has some planned responses

First provable lie of the night.

I'm gonna miss you, liver.

In what will probably be a general trend today. It sounds ridiculous, but Clinton is right, Trump did say that global warming is a chinese hoax.

He also made a (un-named) Solyndra jab.

Moderator not keeping Trump from trying to overyell Clinton.

Trump is pushing the "Clinton hasn't done anything while being a politician until I made her start working this year" wondering how well that is going to stick.

Nafta, nafta,nafta.

The moderator can't push too hard yet. The spin will be that it was biased against Trump.

Trump is tying his own noose.

He is already losing it. He can't stop being angry. It is his only schtick

Wow, Hillary really seems to have gotten under his skin already.

Clinton needs to stop reading the numbers on her papers. More folksy.

It is just the same record republicans have peddled for my whole life - cut taxes, cut regulation. Always the same, broken record.

Her entire adult life!

Trump is even talking over the moderator. Man....

We had 8 years of republican tax cuts during the bush years and it got us the Great Recession.

The current TPP stuff is mixed on the honesty point. Clinton's original quote is:

This TPP sets the gold standard in trade agreements to open free, transparent, fair trade, the kind of environment that has the rule of law and a level playing field. And when negotiated, this agreement will cover 40 percent of the world's total trade and build in strong protections for workers and the environment.

So they are both right. She said that it was the gold standard, but the "when negotiated" makes it obvious that she is speaking before all of the minutia was finalized. She is saying that when that minutia was finalized she did speak much less favorably on what it ended up being.


Trump just spouts words and hopes that people think, "he's saying a lot, he must know things."

Man, Trump is starting to lose his initial cool, shouting at Clinton that the fact that she has a plan on her website about how she is going to fight ISIS is a security risk.

He can probably make that part stick, and explain away his lack of foreign policy plans on "operational security", don't see how that can fly with any other area though.

Trump is reeling.

But I'm not sure how that will even play.

Definitely seeing the gulf between the GOP debates and this one.

Hooray Lester Holt!

I don't think he is doing that bad really. He is playing the same song that republicans have danced to for years.

Big fat ugly bubble!

And he really is just blaming. Nothing much about what he will do but just how it is someone else's fault.

Just look at the paperwork that I wrote. Not the other paperwork that is reviewed by impartial professionals.

Stop trying to make "Trumped-up Trickle Down" happen. It's not going to happen.


Lester Holt is my new hero.

Lester Holt just called him out on the audit not actually keeping him from releasing his returns.
