Welcome to our first post-debate day roundup of Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign. There's a fairly good possibility there won't be another, so this may have been it for us. We’ll just have to see.
Obviously, today's Donald J. Trump news was all about last night's debate. To most observers, Trump did not do well; what's not yet clear is whether it will matter.
One of the most distracting things from last night's debate, outside of Trump's exceptionally angry. pointing tiny fingers, wild gesticulating, and eye rolling was his chronic and extremely noticeable sniffing. And it wasn't just here or there, it was literally dozens of sniffs. Twitter was on fire with ideas, from a cold, to allergies to even.this gem from Howard Dean:
Notice Trump sniffing all the time.
In early August, Republican Rep. Mike Coffman ran an attention-grabbing commercial where he pledged to stand up to either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump. However, Coffman had no exit strategy and he soon found himself in trouble when he admitted that he hadn’t actually ruled out voting for Trump. Colorado’s 6th District is the type of well-off and well-educated area where Trump smells like electoral rat poison, so we know why Coffman is trying to distance himself from his party’s nominee.
Donald Trump wants to phone a friend when it comes to his position on the Iraq War: Fox News anchor Sean Hannity. Trump apparently had some very intricate, top secret, and extensive conversations with Hannity about his views on the war—if only reporters would check into it! Trump assured viewers of that Monday night from the debate stage:
I then spoke to Sean Hannity, which everyone refuses to call Sean Hannity.
If Rudy Giulliani were the Republican presidential nominee, he’d take his ball and go home. Right now. The former mayor of New York City and a Donald Trump advisor thinks that Lester Holt, the NBC anchor and moderator for the presidential debate on Monday, “should be ashamed of himself,” and that he was wrong, wrong, wrong, just as wrong can be, to fact-check a Trump statement.
“If I were Donald Trump I wouldn’t participate in another debate unless I was promised that the journalist would act like a journalist and not an incorrect, ignorant fact checker,” Giuliani said.
