We've got the third and final presidential debate right here, streaming via NBC News, after the jump. This one promises to be particularly crazy and particularly noteworthy for NewsHounds because Fox News' Chris Wallace is the moderator. Let's watch together and share our thoughts and observations.
Wallace is the first Fox News host to moderate a presidential debate. So the pressure is on him both to be impartial and fair but also, I'm sure, to help his home team. Plus, with Donald Trump in all but a full meltdown, God only knows what will happen.
Let's chat below!
Makes me wonder all the more W-H-Y in the world does he perform so miserably in real life. What sort of psychological weakness could prompt a man to perform so far beneath his true capabilities?
With that, Orange Donald shot his own balls off, politically speaking of course.
Not just for all the petulant moments of interrupting Clinton and glaring at her while she was speaking. Not just for what increasingly sounded like a panicked attempt to assert himself while the floor fell away beneath him.
For the biggest jaw-dropper I’ve ever heard in a presidential debate. Not an insult, not even a jab. A petulant, egotistical refusal to accept the outcome of an election. I can understand a situation like 2000 where the numbers are so close, it’s pretty much obligatory to recheck them. But that’s not what we’re looking at here. This is looking like at least a 340-198 walkaway for Clinton. And after Trump’s failure tonight, that number may have just risen another 30 EC votes. In that scenario, Trump refusing to accept the outcome isn’t a sign for his concern for democracy. It’s part of a denial of reality, and a fairly nasty one at that.
I agree with other posters who noted that Kellyanne Conway looked both tired and unhappy while attempting to put the best face on the situation. Looked to me that Megyn Kelly was in a bit of “I told you so” while noting Trump’s belly flop tonight.
Let’s see what the numbers show in a week or two. It’s really starting to feel like Trump is staring down the barrel of the biggest public humiliation of his life. Not a surprise that he won’t be making that phone call on Election Night or any other time.
Horrifying indeed. Unfit. For. The. Presidency.
Trump came across as blatantly unqualified to be president.
When he loses, so will she…bigly.
Now Bret Baier and Megyn Kelly in pro-Trump mode but their expressions don’t say they really believe it.
