Yes, we watched it. For you. The things we do for our loyal citizenry.
It was as we’d suspected. On one hand, at least, in that the Hillary Worshiping “moderator” did all that he could to stay well away from the Cankled Beast’s discomfort zones. But that’s hardly news. Anybody going into a debate between a ProgNazi and a human being would be a fool to think that the “moderator” wouldn’t steer proceedings in favor of his ProgNazi idol.
What surprised us a bit was that Trump didn’t go all out on the drunken, brain damaged old goat’s too numerous to count scandals and crimes. But, then again, maybe that’s what he meant to do. Maybe he’s feeling out the opponent for the next two bouts, or maybe it’s just as simple as him knowing that nobody remembers a rat’s asshair’s worth of what went on in the first debate come election time, so he saved the Good Stuff™ for last. Or maybe he’s just a howling, drooling incompetent who, through some act of G-d, became a multi-billionaire in spite of having no brains at all (the #NeverTrump creed, or so we understand).
All that is idle speculation.
What we DO know is that not a single damn thing was debated that the masses of voters care about even in the slightest. Dispute it if you like, but we don’t see Mr. and Mrs. Mainstream (and, let’s be honest here, they ARE the ones with all the votes, not a tiny group of eggheaded poli-junkies like ourselves) giving a fart in a twister about Trump’s tax returns, Obongo’s birth certificate or the fact that Trump once hurt a fat cow’s feelings by calling her fat.
To the extent that something that people might care about WAS mentioned, that is to say jobs and trade, Trump was the only one addressing the issue in any sort of way that might connect, by stating that we need to bring businesses (that’s where jobs are made, they’re NOT made by Gender Study Dance Interpretation majors. Sorry, Proggie SJWs) back by lowering taxes and we need to not always be left with the sponge end of the stick in trade deals. The Hildebeest was blubbering the usual inanities that politicians always resort to, basically saying “we’ll fix the problem by making it go away. Somehow. Magically.”
So overall? Who won?
On Politi-Junkie Points, we suppose the Hildebeest did by managing to not have a seizure for over an hour and a half and by not being run over by a merciless string of verbal attacks.
But on substance?
If she won, then what exactly did she win?
That remains to be seen.
