"Good Television News is always Substance over Form" ~~~ Jessica Savitch
Donald Trump may have the greatest "Form" in the history of mankind,
'believe me'! he probably said so, himself!...but! when it comes down to
the nitty gritty of the reality of being on live national TV, in front
of the world, one on one in a Presidential Debate?...where's the
Substance? In Trump's case, it should be more like "Where's the
Beef"?!?! Folks! you just can't fix stupid!!
first few minute or so, Donald Trump actually acted respectful and
polite, a little seldom seen decorum from Le Grande Orange...but, being
respectful never has been his forte...it didn't take long for the
Orangutan inside of him to come out firing! loudly interrupting Clinton
25 times in the next 26 minutes!
To FactCheck or not to
FactCheck...'that', was the question of the night. And for the first
time in American Political History, the issue of fact-checking has
become a major issue in these debates. Trump didn't want to be
fact-checked (who cares about knowing the truth in Trump's little own
world of Lies?...certainly not his supporters). Clinton, on the other
hand, requested that people fact-check Trump's answers and her
answers...see who's lying. The networks decided not to do live
fact-checking cause they didn't feel it should be the Moderator's job to
just fact-check everything that comes out of the Candidates' mouths.
the concerns of having a compulsive serial liar like Donald Trump
answering a load of questions during a debate has made America much more
aware now...aware of a common political practice...rhetorical political
lies. Bloomberg TV dissented from the other Networks and had real-time
fact-checking while televising the entire Debate. The New York Times ran
real-time fact-checking, so did the Washington Post, and other papers
around the country. Naturally, FactCheck and the other Fact Checking
sites went all out, too.
The general consensus among
all fact-checkers was that the Trumpster overwhelmingly won the Great
Liars' Debate Game with 1 Falsehood every 3 minutes and 15 seconds in
the 90 minutes of Debate. But, it wasn't the best of nights for
misogynist Donald in the actual Debate Scorecard, where he
overwhelmingly took a humiliated whupping by a Woman! Every certifiable
commentator, pundit, pollster, analyst, and journalist said; "An
Overwhelming Victory", "A Blowout win for Hillary Clinton", Clinton
Takes Round One".
But, Trump still had his faithful flock at
FoxNews, Drudge, and Breitbart News, all enthusiastic, giving Trump the
accolades of the greatest winner of a debate in Debate History...sounds
so much, Trump?!?! Oh, wait! Breitbart News? Isn't Breitbart's Steve
Bannon running Trumps Campaign? A little conflict of interest between 2
scoundrels in a political campaign is nothing new...add Matt Drudge and
FoxNews to this mix of manure, and you have the makings of a strong
national competitor...for "Waste Management"!
in Debates tells a lot about a person's true character and inner
strength, and it also shows that intelligence and preparation are the
equation for a better debate...Trump failed in every category of the
so-called Debate of the Century.
His performance? well, he finally
admitted...after relatively easy baiting by his opponent...that he
really is a shyster that's always looking for loopholes for the sole
purpose of not having to pay taxes, or not paying any of his debts back
to anyone, whatsoever.
Hillary Clinton on Trump's Tax debacle;
“The only years that anybody’s ever seen were a couple of years when he
had to turn them over to State Authorities when he was trying to get a
Casino License, and they showed he didn’t pay any Federal Income Tax.”
reply? “That makes me smart.” I guess not smart enough cause you just
unwantedly let that big cat out of the bag, but still smart enough to
screw the US Government of how many $Millions throughout the years?
pretty much means Donald Trump has systematically, through the
years...using every legal loophole possible...avoided paying any of his
fair share of Taxes. Ahhyup! Mr. Drumpf is a real patriotic civic-minded
American...as long as he doesn't have to pay his debts back, naturally.
And this man wants to make us Great Again by using all his failed
business acumen? Oy Vey!!
It was all downhill for Trump throughout
the debate...till his"stamina" gave out. His screwball idle
chatter...shades of Sarah Palin...about "The Cyber", made Rolling
Stone's "WTF Moment of the Debate". It also resulted in the New York
Daily News' headline: "The real Loser of the Debate was the English
On Bankruptcies: Clinton; “You’ve taken
business bankruptcies six times.” Trump; “On occasion...four times...we
used certain laws that are there.” Yea! that's the Trumpster! a man who
very publicly has demonstrated by either his actions or his words, his
believes that Assets and Property are worth more than a Human Life in
his tiny degenerate mind.
It's no surprise who won the
Debate, it was pretty well unanimous in this country, and unanimous
throughout the world...except for all the White Nationalist Movements
throughout, who believe Heir Drumpf is the second coming of their mighty
When Republican Analyst Frank Luntz's Focus Group of
22 voted 16-6 for Hillary as the winner, it's just not good news for
the GOP. The conclusion? Trump appeared his usual self...And the sign of
a loser who lost 'his' stamina. Blaming his loss on everyone else cause
his Microphone was defective (though, everyone heard those defective
Sniffles), and even his other talking point, maybe that was part of the
No Donald, you lost! you got your big
derriere handed to you on a silver platter, cause Clinton was prepared
for the Debate, with the Intelligence and all the substance needed to
become the next President of the United States, while you were in your
usual form...raising your own personal level of stupid to greater
heights, becoming an embarrassment for what the United States truly
stands for, and the real embellishment of what's wrong with America.
