Last Night's CiC Forum with Hillary and Trump
Well that was telling.
Hillary answered all of Matt Lauer's questions with a depth of knowledge and understanding of the complex issues. She was totally composed and presidential.
Donald "Take Their Oil" Trump was himself:
1) He dodged the questions, lied about his support of the Iraq War and his support for intervention in Libya;
2) He trashed the military, calling the generals nothing but a heap of rubble;
3) He praised the Commie strongman, Putin, calling him a "great leader," while disparaging America's Commander in Chief in front of America's military;
4) When asked by Lauer about his plan to defeat ISIS, Trump said he would ask the generals to come up with one in 30 days. Lauer then reminded Trump that he bragged to America that HE had a great plan a beautiful plan. Trump then said, he'd combine his plan with the generals' plan. Complete and utter bullshit.
Why someone didn't march him off the stage like the small-handed quisling that he showed himself to be, is a mystery. Apparently there are Americans out there who lap up Trump's disjointed uninformed stupidity because they're as dumb as he is.
Can anyone imagine a Democrat praising the former head of Communist Russia's KGB over our American president and not getting booed off the stage?
And Lauer was cowed by the Horse's Ass, interrupting Hillary constantly with time checks and not saying a word to counter the sophomoric drivel coming from Trump. As Norm Ornstein observed, it's tough to be a woman running for the presidency.
There is no question that Hillary has a deep knowledge about foreign and domestic issues and is prepared to be president.
Donald Trump is still a bullshitter, and an unapologetic liar.
Trump's own words:
“I’m good at war. I’ve had a lot of wars of my own. I’m really good at war. I love war in a certain way, but only when we win.”
Trump has never been in the service, although he has said "I always felt I was in the military” because of his education at a military-themed boarding school and believes that he has “more training militarily than a lot of the guys that go into the military.”
That comment "I'm good at war" says everything about Trump as he demonstrated last night at the town hall forum that he is indeed unfit to be president of the United States. There were many aspects of his performance that had people gasping at the mere idea of this man in a position of real power, not the least of which was his comment that President Obama compares unfavorably to Russian president Vladimir Putin who "has an 85 percent approval rating" and is "very much a leader" because he has "strong control over his country."
So, the GOP nominee for Commander in Chief tells people that he's "good at war," "has had a lot of wars of his own" and "loves war in a certain way" despite never having been in the military. He also believes he's a "genius" who is "more militaristic" than anyone in the room. His plan to defeat ISIS is to blow up the Iraqi oil wells and have Exxon come in and rebuild them. And he believes that half the military leadership are fools and cites Vladimir Putin's "approval rating" as evidence of superior leadership.
I repeat. Anyone who votes for this maniac should be shamed and shunned for all eternity.
