    The final faceoff between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump reached 71.6 million television viewers, meaning two of the three most-watched presidential debates in history occurred during this campaign. The debate from Las Vegas, moderated by Fox News Channel’s Chris Wallace, exceeded the 66.5 million people who watched the second debate. The first time these two candidates met on stage in September, the audience of 84 million set a viewership record, the Nielsen company said. …

    In the final presidential debate, Hillary Clinton claimed that her proposals would “not add a penny to the debt.” But a nonpartisan budget watchdog group estimates that what she has detailed thus far would add $200 billion to the debt over 10 years. The same budget experts estimate Trump’s proposals would add significantly more — $5.3 trillion — to the debt over 10 years. Clinton, however, made the misleading claim that Trump’s tax cuts would “add $20 trillion to the debt.” That’s a two-decade figure — a point Clinton leaves out — and it doesn’t account for any spending cuts...

According to sources within the Department of Defense speaking under anonymity, Clinton likely violated at least two Dept. of Defense SAP protocols during the debate by announcing on live television the United States Government’s response time for a nuclear launch.

What will she need luck for if she’s not going to be president? Ten minutes earlier, Trump told moderator Chris Wallace he will let us all know on election night whether he is going to accept the results of the Nov. 8 balloting. It was a shocking and cravenly irresponsible thing to...

    Donald Trump won tonight’s debate. He didn’t implode, he didn’t blither, he didn’t continually interrupt Hillary Clinton and he didn’t even sniff much. And, frankly, he had the best retorts and one-liners. Clinton was on her heels much of the night, and several times, she had to reset by resorting to tired, hollow platitudes — which only drove home the point that she lacks authenticity and appears to be a typical politician who is therefore dishonest. That said, Clinton was an able, informed politician, but Trump — for the first time — appeared to be a worthy opponent. The fact...

She went on and on nauseatingly about her "horror" at Trump's not accepting the results, and about the Russians and the 17 agencies garbage. But did you notice, at the end, when asked about the O'Keefe videos, she quickly cut off the reporter, said "I know nothing about all that" and wheeled around and left the interview. She is afraid.

    One of the first clashes of the debate came over the Supreme Court’s decision in District of Columbia v. Heller, the case that said the Second Amendment protected an individual’s right to own a firearm for self-protection. Donald Trump said Hillary Clinton was “extremely upset, extremely angry” about the decision, which struck down Washington’s restrictive gun law making it almost impossible for residents to possess handguns. The Supreme Court justices that Clinton would appoint would turn the Second Amendment into a “very, very small replica of what it is now.”

Trump’s campaign CEO and former Breitbart News chief Steve Bannon told CNN’s Brian Stelter that the campaign had several “surprise guests” planned for Wednesday night’s debate. O’Keefe made headlines this week after he posted several undercover videos that he alleges show Democratic operatives talking about stirring up mischief against the Republican presidential nominee’s campaign.

Kim Jong Hill is the master of ceremonies and gleefully monitors the activity from a gurney overlooking the tank, narrating the action in between breaths of oxygen from a mask administered by Huma Abedin. When Trump appears too close to escaping, Hillary speaks fluent Parseltongue to the sharks, whose eyes widen in...
