    Laughing.... Out......Loud !!

    Man, nothing you could write here makes not a damn difference. None, nothing nada, zero, nein, nicht, !!!

    What is done is done and absolutely NOTHING could ever revive or at least, improve Donny's chances of winning the White House.

    He lost the second debate....badly. So as it stands right now:

    Clinton 2 Trumpy 0


    So by the day I grow far more confident that Donny will lose. And will lose badly. And yes, as he stated, it will be a huge waste of time, money and effort on his part.

    So common folks, it is about time you put on your thinking cap because it is obvious you can't think for yourself and look at the overall picture.....

    He is done. For good.

    Second debate reveals Trump’s last-ditch strategy: Double down on everything


    For 48 hours his campaign had been in full meltdown mode.

    Donald Trump’s response? To let Trump be Trump — and then some.
    There was, of course, the tape heard round the world — the one with him bragging that he can “grab” women “by the p****” simply because he’s “a star.”
    There were the unprecedented defections: more than a dozen sitting Republican senators and scores of other GOP officials tripping over each other to declare they could no longer in good conscience support his candidacy.

    There was the defiant “apology” video; the conservative pleas for a new nominee; the weekend spent hiding out, huddling with friends and family, in his namesake Manhattan tower.
    By the time Trump sauntered onstage at Washington University Sunday night for the second debate of the 2016 presidential election — his odds of winning the White House dwindling, his remaining options unclear — pretty much everyone in America was asking the same question:
    Which Donald Trump would show up in St. Louis?

    Minutes later the answer was obvious: the Trumpiest Trump ever. “I pledge to be a better man tomorrow,” Trump had said in his apology video. But during the debate he wasn’t a better man. He was the same man, only more so.

    This was the Trump that the alt-right website Breitbart had championed all cycle. The Trump that the loyalists who spent the weekend at Trump Tower encouraged him to be. The Trump that your neighbor with the “Hillary for Prison” T-shirt keeps posting about on Facebook.

    Never before has a presidential nominee of either party behaved on a debate stage the way Trump behaved Sunday night. Much of what he said would have seemed inconceivable in past presidential forums.

    In a direct breach of the tradition of nonpartisan rule of law, for instance, Trump promised that, if elected president, he would appoint a special prosecutor to go after Hillary Clinton.

    Clinton tried to laugh it off. “It’s just awfully good,” she said, “that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country.” “Because you’d be in jail,” Trump snapped — seemingly unaware that, after a democratic election, the winner doesn’t imprison his political opponents.

    Trump went on to liken Clinton to “the devil.” He said “she has tremendous hate in her heart.” “We have a divided nation,” he added, “because [of] people like her.” When talk turned to Capt. Humayun Khan, the decorated Muslim American soldier who died in Iraq and whose parents have spoken out against Trump, the Republican blamed his death on Clinton, claiming that “if I were president at that time, he would be alive today, because unlike her … I would not have had our people in Iraq.” (Fact checkers have shown that Trump initially supported the war.)

    Instead of displaying sincere remorse for his lewd remarks about women — “this is locker-room talk,” he repeated five times — Trump decided to play a political version of “I am rubber, you are glue,” summoning several women who had accused Bill Clinton of sexual misconduct to a surprise pre-debate press conference and immediately pivoting to the former president whenever moderators Anderson Cooper and Martha Raddatz asked about the “Access Hollywood” tape.

    “If you look at Bill Clinton, far worse,” Trump said. “There’s never been anybody in the history of politics in this nation that’s been so abusive to women.”
    In fact, Trump seemed to conclude, the whole firestorm was somehow his opponent’s fault. “When Hillary brings up a point like that and she talks about words that I said 11 years ago, I think it’s disgraceful,” he said. “I think she should be ashamed of herself.”

    Whenever Trump had a choice — dial it down or dial it up — he chose the latter. Despite charges that he has been cozying up to Vladimir Putin, he defended Russia throughout the debate, at one point going so far as to throw his running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, under the proverbial bus for suggesting that Putin’s provocations in Syria need to be “met with American strength.”
    “He and I haven’t spoken,” Trump said. “And I disagree.”


    Trump frequently whined to the moderators for favoring Clinton — a favorite complaint of conservatives everywhere. Of his late-night tweet storms — which some critics see as impulsive and unpresidential — Trump would only say, “I’m not un-proud of it, to be honest with you.” And when pressed by Cooper to reveal once and for all whether he has used a $916 million loss to avoid paying personal federal income taxes since 1995, Trump brazenly admitted that he did.
    “Of course I do,” he said. “Of course I do.”


    When the dust settled Sunday night, most headlines described the debate as “vicious” — and many blamed both candidates equally. “Clinton and Trump got vicious during tonight’s debate,” read an alert from the official Washington Post account. “He threatened to send her to jail; she attacked his treatment of women.”
    To be clear, though: threatening to undermine the rule of law is not the same thing as criticizing your opponent for saying he likes to grab women by their genitalia. Quoting Michelle Obama, Clinton telegraphed her strategy early on.
    “When they go low,” she said, “you go high.”


    To be sure, Clinton took her shots at Trump for the tape. “I think it’s clear to anyone who heard it that it represents exactly who he is,” she said. “Because we’ve seen this throughout the campaign. We have seen him insult women. We’ve seen him rate women on their appearance, ranking them from one to 10. We’ve seen him embarrass women on TV and on Twitter. … The question for us, the question our country must answer, is that this is not who we are.”
    But then, having clearly decided it was Trump, not she, who needed to change the trajectory of the campaign, Clinton sat back, played it safe and let him attempt to do just that.

    The commenters on Breitbart will be pleased with the path Trump chose. So will the 35 percent of voters who will back him no matter what.
    But the rest of the country — including much of the Republican Party — may not be so charmed.

    In truth, Trump’s options were limited. Clinton was already well ahead in key battleground states before the “Access Hollywood” tape came out, and his chances of convincing college-educated female swing voters to change sides collapsed after its release. So why not rally the base? With the GOP establishment ditching him in droves, the die-hards are pretty much all he has left.

    The problem is that there aren’t enough people in Trump’s base to win a presidential election. As the debate itself fades from memory, and as the post-debate spin cycle begins, the Clinton campaign will continue to weaponize key moments on social media and elsewhere — an art it perfected last month with Alicia Machado. It certainly came away from Sunday’s encounter with plenty of ammo: the jail comment, the tax confession, Trump’s habit of looming behind Clinton every time she spoke and so on.

    Meanwhile, the GOP is facing its own conundrum. With Trump now toxic among swing voters — and refusing, it seems, to reach out to them in the final weeks of the campaign — down-ballot Republicans have an impossible decision to make. Do they repudiate Trump and move to the center, thereby risking the support of Trump’s reinvigorated base? (See: Kelly Ayotte in New Hampshire and Joe Heck in Nevada.)


    Or do they stick with an emboldened Trump and his ever-defiant fans — and go down with what seems to be a sinking ship?
    After St. Louis, the battle between Trump and his party may actually be more interesting than the battle between Trump and Clinton.

    Donald Trump confirmed our worst fears about the kind of president he would be


    Donald Trump is running for dictator, not for president.

    At Sunday’s debate, Donald Trump revealed that he is not running to be America’s president so much as its dictator.
    The debate’s most unnerving moment came early. “If I win, I'm going to instruct the attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation, because there's never been so many lies, so much deception,” Trump told Hillary Clinton.

    “It's just awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law of our country,” Clinton shot back.

    Trump, determined as always to make subtext into text, left no room for confusion. “Because you’d be in jail,” he said.

    So there it was. The Republican nominee for president of the United States has promised to imprison his opponent if he wins the election. “This is what happens in dictatorships,” wrote the New York Times’ Max Fisher. “Not democracies.”

    Tonight was the night when our worst fears about Donald Trump’s autocratic impulses were confirmed.Trump is, by his own account, vengeful. “When someone intentionally harms you or your reputation, how do you react?” he wrote in 2007. “I strike back, doing the same thing to them only ten times worse." And so it’s long been obvious that Trump might be vengeful as president — a possibility Vox’s Dara Lind explored brilliantly in this feature.

    But Trump had never simply come out and said he would use the power of the state to punish his political enemies. In June he inched that way, telling a crowd that he was starting to agree with a popular chant at his rallies, “lock her up.” Tonight, he went all the way.

    As bad as the recording of Trump bragging about sexual assault is, this is scarier — this is a major presidential candidate promising to violate our most basic democratic norms if elected.

    When Trump said he'd throw her in jail my first thought went back to Putin doing that to Khodorkovsky.

    In Trump’s defense, he might simply be confused. Later in the debate, he showed a startling lack of familiarity with the basic structure of America’s political system.

    The exchange was over the carried-interest loophole — a quirk of the tax code that allows hedge fund managers to pay a lower tax rate on their share of their fund’s profits. Trump bragged that he wanted to get rid of it, and said Clinton wanted to leave it be. This is not true — Clinton has long pushed to close the loophole, and she said so.

    “I've been in favor of getting rid of carried interest for years,” Clinton replied. “Starting when I was a senator from New York.”
    “Why didn't you do it?” Trump asked. “Why didn't you do it”

    “Because I was a senator with a Republican president,” Clinton replied.

    “If you were an effective senator, you could have done it,” Trump shot back.

    This is, to put it mildly, not how the American political system works. Trump has always had an ambitious view of executive power, but here he showed a basic ignorance of the system’s basic functioning. Even an effective senator cannot, on their own, overwhelm a presidential veto.

    But Trump doesn’t seem to care. As political scientist Brendan Nyhan has written, Trump “exploits the appeal of presidential omnipotence by contrasting his supposedly decisive style of business leadership as a real estate magnate with the compromises, inertia and policy failures that are inevitable in politics.” The hope was always that Trump knew better than his grand promises suggest. Tonight, he made it clear he doesn’t.

    Many of Trump’s supporters hope that he’ll be guided and constrained by more seasoned, temperate advisers while in office. Tonight he proved that hope absurd. He began the evening by inviting three women who have accused Bill Clinton of sexual misconduct to a press conference — an insane strategy that virtually everyone in the Republican Party has been begging Trump to abandon.

    Later in the night, Trump was asked about his running mate’s statements on Russia, and he made clear how little influence Pence has over his campaign, and how little interest Trump has in his counsel. "He and I haven't spoken, and I disagree," Trump brutally replied.

    The message: Trump listens to no one, and is held back by no one. A Trump presidency won’t secretly be a Mike Pence presidency, or a Paul Ryan presidency, with Trump occupying a more ceremonial role. It will be him, and he will be doing whatever he damn well pleases.

    Then there was the question where a young Muslim woman asked Trump what he would do about the rising tide of Islamophobia in America, and he answered by repeating false, Islamophobic myths on television. “In San Bernardino, many people saw the bombs all over the apartment of the two people that killed 14 and wounded many, many people. … Muslims have to report the problems when they see them.” This simply never happened, and so we saw a presidential hopeful respond to a question about staunching Islamophobia by feeding it.

    This was a scary night in American politics. This was an American presidential candidate promising to rule like Vladimir Putin.

    I have said this before, but the compliment Donald Trump deserves to be paid is that he has never hidden his true nature. He has never obscured his cruelty, or his misogyny, or his greed, or his dishonesty, or his will to power. Tonight, he was perfectly clear about the autocratic direction in which he wants to take the country, and now it is up to us to decide if we want to go there.
