I was hoping for a knockout by Trump and was really disappointed with some of his meandering thoughts and inordinate/repetitive focus on China/Japan “stealing jobs” when he could have talked about Hillary’s influence peddling.
We saw a different Donald last night and I had the idea that maybe he’s got a soft spot for women and debates differently with women. So maybe he was coached to not go too hard on “the woman” he’s running against in the first debate.
Think about how caring he is to the women in his life... He does have a soft spot for women (certainly not Hillary), but he’s not used to debating one-on-one in this male-female dynamic — where he could be accused of bullying a “poor me” woman.
But I think he’ll get up to speed and resolve it and win in the end.
I always like reading your posts but in this case have a question for you:
In your disappointment, can you also see how at this debate, it was unfairly “moderated” if you can call it “moderated” since it didn’t seem moderated at all but seemed like the moderator was also a debator for Hillary? There was one point in this debate where Mr. Trump answered so articulately that I said to myself Trump just won the presidency, (Even though he had to deal with all the attack questions AND mostly be LAST to be given the chance to answer...except of course when it benefitted Hillary to answer second)...The democrats very carefully planned each question and who would be asked first. Did you notice that? Bless you sir for your great insight and love of this country that I have seen in all the posts I’ve read that you wrote.
I will keep posting this idea: Trump should be able to have a moderator moderate the moderators. That would be fair since they are all democrats. That way if the moderators involve themselves in any way....whether by inserting their OPINIONS in their QUESTIONS or by NOT asking the same hard question to Hillary...then the moderator of the moderator jumps in JUST AS A JUDGE does in court and says OBJECTION!!!!!
PLEASE pass this idea on to Mr. Trump if you have connections. THANK YOU!
Alan, agree. You wonder why Trump didn’t take advantage of some openers to attack Clinton.
But I think he was wisely coached to back off a bit. The media has been portraying Trump as an mean ogre. So he had to show his presidential side. Showing too much attack dog might have backfired.
Anyway, there are two more debates, plenty of time to get to the Hillary corruption issues.
