That really was a masterful set up from the Clinton campaign. Trump had no idea who Clinton was talking about when she made her accusations, but they already had an ad made and aired right after the debate, and, Trump being Trump, would be baited into lashing out and thus perpetuating the story.

And now the 9-marriage, serial cheater tag team of Trump, Guiliani and Gingrich want to bring up Bill's infidelity. You know the Clinton campaign has prepared for this one.

Trump is too narcissistic and egotistical to realize he's doing exactly what they wanted him to do.

Yup. They knew he wouldn't be able to let it go.

And yes, I think the Clinton team is ready for the Bill attacks.

This goes back to even Obama, he and Clinton seem to be playing a different game than the GOP.

Even if Trump didn't take ridiculous and offensive stances, his willingness to be baited into petty attacks proves he is in no way fit to wield authority. A big part of the art of politics is not taking your opponent's bait! This man is the fucking dumbest fish in the pond, trying to nibble on every single type of bait there is.

Is this the greatest political campaign strategy in recent history?

Just masterful.

So, now Trump is slut shaming the woman he already fat shamed? What a fucking asshole. He needs to be nowhere near the nuclear codes.

this really gets to the heart of it, and the question i would pose to any Trump supporter: how can you trust this man with national security?

i fully accept that Trump represents "change," and he's given voice to a populism attractive to those who have felt left behind by globalization.

but doesn't this manic 3am tweeting gossip render him totally unfit any sort of security clearance? that everything you might like about him doesn't matter because of this stuff?

seriously.

this is a surreal campaign. W Bush represented lots of bad things -- indifference to knowledge, and a terrifying incursion of conservative Christianity into the White House. but it was all within the realm of what we could call "responsible" governance. (and i can't believe that i'm almost defending W Bush, of all people). McCain and Romney were all credible public servants. Trump belongs in the same dustbin as Palin.

I'd ask for a link to the story, but don't think I could stomach what I would end up reading.

I was thinking this other day. Romney looks damn good as a Republican candidate in retrospect, which is something I never expected myself to be thinking, no less saying out loud.

Romney probably wouldn't have been that terrible a president. He'd serve the corporate class, which is basically the status quo but I think he had little interest in invading places and as a Mormon probably even less interest in courting the Christian right. Obviously against Obama he stood no real chance but compared to the 16 or 17 clowns that graced the stage this time he was a statesman.

If it all wasn't disturbing enough. The fact that these tweets came between 3 and 5am is actually kind of terrifying when you think about it.
Imagine someone with absolutely no self control. Someone who cannot let the smallest slight go. Someone who has never apologized or admitted doing something wrong in his life. A guy that won't listen to anyone around him no matter what they say, and usually just ends up replacing them. (I've heard rumblings that "the family" isn't happy with his management yet again)
And then imagine him in the Oval office or situation room with some really big shit going down.

So much is laughed off about this baffoon. But the reality is really scary.

If anyone is interested in latest polling. Looks like Clinton is getting a bump from the debate.
some are mid and post debate, but National polls ranging from Clinton plus 3 to plus 10.
Nevada - Clinton plus 5. Florida - Clinton plus 2 and plus 4. and looks like gains in NC, CO, and MI.

The interesting one is the Times Picayune poll. Poll taken pre/mid debate had Clinton plus 5 Nationally. Then did one post debate and have her up 10.

Will be interesting to see how the other polls shake out by midweek next week.

Just wait for the Wikileaks!!!!! Game Changer!!!! You won't believe what's in the emails!

I can't wait to see what trap Clinton sets for Trump next.

Clinton is a known commodity. I really doubt we're going to hear a giant bombshell in the next 30+ days that we haven't already heard, or no worse than what we've heard.

But with Trump, you know people are digging around and the DNC/Clinton team will keep releasing more and more shit on him as we get closer.

They did so brilliantly with Ms Universe

I fully expect some more DNC type stuff to show up in the next few weeks.
But the Foundation and emails have pretty much been exhausted of any new material. Not that they won't be asked about.

I think Clinton's team has done well finding things to throw at Trump at just the right time. Amazing the deluge of new information that is coming out about Trump now that the Machado thing took hold.

Luckily, Trump is the perfect pawn. He just keeps it going and going. It's great.
