Sigh. Here we go again.
21:14 EDT: Fifteen minutes on the 2nd Amendment, argued by someone who has never read the thing. And now, abortion, which apparently will be overturned "automatically" if he appoints pro-life judges.
21:19: No, Donald, you can't rip the baby out of the womb in the 9th month. I mean, FFS.
21:22: It took fully 15 minutes for him to descend into a stream-of-consciousness. That's pretty good self-control. (Did he just say "bad hombres?")
21:24: This, from my cousin.
21:26: No score after 4. Arguably more useful for the typical Chicagoan than this debate.
21:29: You know, in any other election, it would be really weird for a major candidate to say that the Russians have committed espionage against her campaign.
21:32: This is a long way from Lincoln-Douglas, isn't it?
21:36: "You're not going to find a quote from me." Oh, dearie dearie dear.
21:40: She's going to double my taxes? I'm absolutely certain that is mathematically impossible for me, but if she doubled your taxes it would still be...what, zero?
21:49: "Excuse me. My turn."
21:54: So...he's projecting the incitement to violence that he has perpetrated, onto her?
21:55: Apparently some people have objected to the Ewoks comment at 21:24. This only proves the Ewok Line.
22:01: Trump is calling the Clinton Foundation a "criminal enterprise." Half of all people being treated for HIV-AIDS in the world are getting it from the Foundation. Criminally, I suppose.
22:04: "There's no way to know if he's telling the truth" because he hasn't released his tax returns. "Undocumented immigrants in America are paying more in income tax than a billionaire."
22:06: "Will you absolutely accept the results of this election?" "I will look at it at the time."
22:16: "Google 'Donald Trump Iraq.'"
22:21: Trump keeps referring to "the Great Migration." Is he suggesting Clinton is responsible for African-Americans moving from the rural southern U.S. to northern cities?
22:25: Oh, FFS, Matthews. The national debt isn't in itself an issue. Why is this so hard for people? Read Krugman on IS = LM.
22:30: And the last question of this debate cycle is a right-wing hobby horse. Yes, there is bias in the media, and it's pro-Republican.
22:32: "Such a nasty woman." Projection much?
22:34: Final answer of the 2016 debates. Not a moment too soon.
22:37: That is the last time I will ever voluntarily listen to Donald Trump speak in my life. I know he'll be in the news for the next few weeks, but damn, I can't even.
