We know the TeaPublicans live in their own reality, but the rest of us live in the real world.
(The most embarrassing part of the debate and the post-debate was that Donald Trump, who wants to be the leader of the free world, talked about his relationship with a beauty contest winner and her weight gain.)
The TeaPublicans think Don the Con would make a great leader.
Here's a dose of reality for the Trumpistas:
Republicans in Denial That the Debate Exposed Donald Trump As Unfit for Office
Jonathan Chait, New York Magazine
"If you’re a Republican who has been clinging to the wan hope that Donald Trump might somehow, in his eighth decade on Earth, develop into a plausibly competent president of the United States, the first debate should have been your moment to abandon ship. Trump displayed the factual command of a small child, the emotional stability of a hormonal teen, and the stamina of an old man, staggering and losing the thread as the 90 minutes wore on. Instead, Republicans — without a single exception I have seen — have responded very differently. They have treated their candidate’s glaring unsuitability for high office as, at worst, a handful of discrete errors that in no way reflect on his character, and at best, the dastardly unfairness of the liberal media.
So Trump, according to the people trying to help him win, is unable to pick good staff, manage his time, follow advice, or even accept the connection between preparing for an event and succeeding at it. Republicans have so internalized Trump’s wild unsuitability for the presidency that they have decided to treat these facts as mere hurdles to overcome on the path to the presidency. But why are they trying to help him win in the first place?"
Why? Because they want to destroy America by electing an incompetent conman -- a man they would have ripped apart like a cackle of hyenas if Trump had a "D" beside his name instead of an "R."
Here's another one of Trump's easily refuted stupid lies:
From Digby's blog: "Intriguingly, Trump also claimed he had a meeting with George W. Bush administration officials to discuss his opposition to the war. “In fact, a delegation” — from the administration, he would later elaborate — “was sent to my office to see me because I was so vocal about it.”
I recently reached out to Trump’s spokeswoman, Hope Hicks, for more details about this meeting. She didn’t provide any, but a high-ranking former Bush White House senior official told me categorically that no such meeting ever happened, and that no one from the administration was deputized to talk to Trump.
Of course not. Because he wasn't speaking out against the war, number one. And nobody in the White House gave a damn about what he was saying about anything anyway. This man is truly delusional. And that's not just rhetorical hyperbole. He is literally delusional." (And so are his supporters. -- SK)
For the first time in 126 years, the Arizona Republic endorsed a Democrat:
