Seriously…that is how this debate is being billed in the MSM…..a better description would be a verbal “fart-fest”……
I have been reading about just how important the debate is tonight…..I do not agree with much that is been said and written…..
They say the 2 candidates are about even in the polls…if true then that shows just how uninformed the public is and just how disastrous this election will be.
But read the glowing reports for yourself……
It’s going to be the most-watched presidential debate in American history—and possibly the most controversial. Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have their first debate Monday night, and it’s expected to draw a Super Bowl-sized audience of around 100 million. The stakes will be even higher than in the WrestleMania event where Trump shaved his vanquished opponent’s head: Polls show Clinton and Trump neck and neck, and according to the latest Reuters poll, around 50% of voters say the debate will help them choose. A roundup of coverage:
- USA Today, which has details such as viewing tips, nicknames the event being held at Hofstra University’s David S. Mack Sports and Exhibition Complex on Long Island “Smackdown at the Mack.” It starts at 9pm EDT and will last 90 minutes.
- The Boston Globe looks at what makes this debate different from any other. Among other things, it involves a woman versus a man for the first time, and it features two of the most disliked candidates in American history.
- The Washington Post’s debate preview looks at Clinton’s preparations—sources say there has been a lot of focus on Trump’s personality—and notes that much will depend on whether the “freewheeling showman” Trump shows up or the “sober and scripted” version. Either way, this will be his first one-on-one debate.
- Jim Newell at Slate lists three ways that he thinks Trump can be beaten in a debate. One tip: “Ask him to explain anything.”
- Kimberley Strassel at the Wall Street Journal has some do’s and don’ts for Trump. She believes this debate could “give him new momentum toward the White House” if he stays calm—and stays positive.
- Politico notes that the pressure on both candidates will be at its fiercest in the first 30 minutes, a time in which most debates are won and lost—and when candidates tend to roll out their best one-liners.
There you have what the MSM media sees as the debates tonight….again I think they are all so damn wrong…..but I guess we will see…..
Blogger analysis will be more telling than those toads on the MSM……
FYI…..if you plan a drinking game during the debate then read and heed…..
