Who Lost the Great Debate--guess

The final debate is over, the candidates had their say, and, in the end, Donald Trump would not commit to the results of the election if he loses. 

He will believe the results, of course, if he wins. That's because he needs an 'out' to protect his fragile ego should Hillary Clinton win, and it's looking more and more like the former secretary of state, as incompetent and untrustworthy as she is, will likely win the election.

And if Hillary Clinton does, in fact win, that would be historical--she would be the first non-convicted felon to hold the office of president.

Had the GOP put up any other candidate than Trump, there is no doubt that Clinton would be singing the blues. Not only is she the former Worst Lady, she is also the worst candidate money can buy. But the presidency has become like a monarchy, and it's Hillary's turn, and her devil-given right, to run the country.

Trump seemed to win the debate up until the end, until he blew it, just like the New York Mets.

Chris Wallace began with policy issues over gun rights and went on to discuss abortion and immigration. All was going relatively well for Trump, whose use of polysyllabic verbiage is generally limited to such words as 'incredible,' 'unbelievable' and 'amazing'. Donald called Hillary a "nasty woman" and she responded by saying Donald was the "most dangerous" person to run for president in modern history. 

Nice and civilized.


When asked if he would accept the election results, Trump's response was: "I will look at it at the time." He cited his concerns about voter registration fraud and hit the media saying they are corrupt. Of Hillary Clinton, he said that she "shouldn't be allowed to run" because she committed a "very serious crime" with her emails.

And again when pressed about whether he will concede if he loses the election, Trump said, "I will tell you at the time. I'll keep you in suspense," this being the same secret tactic he will use against ISIS if he should somehow happen to win.

Clinton responded to that remark with "That's horrifying," and to be perfectly honest, I can see her point. It's one thing to think that corruption exists, because it absolutely does exist. But the idea that the entire election is "rigged" suggests that our system in total is corrupt and nothing about the American system can be trusted. That's just nonsense and Donald needs to visit places like Russia and North Korea for a more balanced outlook.

Hillary went on to add, "That is not the way our democracy works. He is denigrating, he's talking down our democracy and I for one am appalled."

What does not apparently appall Hillary is accepting millions of dollars from foreign countries that denigrate the very gender for whom she pretends to advocate.

Trump responded by saying the Justice Department's handling of her email probe was "disgraceful," but he forgot to mention the FBI Director's even more disgraceful handling of her email probe.

Chris Wallace was the best part of the debate along with the respectful audience. His questions were tough on both candidates and he was able to pretty much keep the debate in control, in spite of the back and forth verbal battling that took place from time-to-time.

The candidates never shook hands at the start nor the end of the debate--boxers have more class than either of these two clowns.

America lost the debate.
