Hillary Clinton Crushes National Embarrassment Donald Trump in Second Presidential Debate

I’ll be honest, with everything that’s transpired since the last presidential debate – including Donald Trump’s last-minute farce of a “press conference” where four women accusing Bill Clinton of sexual assault sat next to a self-admitted sexual predator spouting off many claims that have been debunked by statements made under oath – I really had no idea what to expect from tonight’s debate.

The only thing my gut told me was that we might see one of the most unusual debates in United States history.

While it wasn’t as much of a circus as I thought it would be, this was definitely not one of our nation’s best moments.

Hillary Clinton was clearly the more composed, professional and, most importantly, presidential of the two. She was put in a difficult position considering most of what she faced was having to debunk the constant lies Donald Trump told throughout the evening, on top of dealing with him constantly interrupting her like he did during the first debate.

For me, this was a debate between an adult and a petulant child. From Trump’s constant interruptions, to the petty way he tried to make everything he said into a personal attack on her — he came off like an immature man-child who clearly lacks the temperament, maturity and intelligence to be president.

At times I actually felt sorry for Clinton because you could look at her and tell she was disgusted at the way Trump constantly lied, issued petty attacks and continually interrupted her.

For Trump, it was clear he was in “attack mode” the entire night. The best way I would summarize his performance was an incoherent, often-rambling word salad of conservative blog headlines and conspiracies.

Then there was his constant whining about “Clinton got more time” — when she actually didn’t. I’m going to go ahead and predict that his big “spin” on tonight is going to be “I was treated unfairly, it was 3 on 1, and it was clear this was rigged to help Clinton.”

Though maybe my favorite part was when he accused her of being an ineffective senator because she couldn’t — single-handedly — pass tax reform. Even though during her entire time in Congress we had a Republican president and the GOP held control in both the House and the Senate — making it impossible to pass the kind of reforms Democrats support.

However, the most pathetic thing I saw tonight was Trump more or less defend his grotesque “grab them by the p–sy” comments as “locker room talk,” essentially making an excuse for what he said. Sure, he said he was sorry — but you can tell he’s not. In his mind, and it was proven by his own answers tonight, it’s clear he doesn’t think what he said was a big deal.

This was truly a night where we saw one competent adult on stage dealing with an unhinged, ill-tempered pathological liar.

The 2016 presidential election was already one of the most important election’s in most of our lifetimes for many reasons. However, with Donald Trump’s unexpected rise to the top of the Republican party’s presidential ladder, it’s made the election about saving this country from electing the most terrifying person to ever get this close to the White House.

This election is as much about preserving all the progress we’ve made in this country, while hoping to usher in even more, as it is about doing everything we can to make damn sure Trump isn’t our next president.

We cannot allow that to happen.

Hit me up on Twitter or Facebook and let me know if you’re with me in this fight to save the country from possibly electing the most unqualified and unfit person who’s ever won a major party’s presidential nomination, Donald J. Trump.

    When he brought forth Cathy Shelton, I wish Hillary had just asked him what he’s up tp pn December 16th. And which court it’s in.

    And whether there’ll be a popcorn stand outside.

    I wish Hillary had handed him a kleenex.

    Trump smashed her, it was like she wasn’t even in the room

    • CA_Reader

      Dude you’re watching another channel.

    • 1Smith1

      Wow. You are so wrong. He did nothing but lie and attack. She, on the other hand, was professional, answered all the questions, and offered excellent solutions.

      • Rob Mann

        Hahahaha HAHAHAHAHAHAH haaaaah……….

  • Hseus

    Typo in the title, it should read: Hillary Clinton Crushed by Embarrassment Donald Trump

    • 1Smith1

      Except that she wasn’t crushed at all. And yes, tRump is an embarrassment to this country. Glad you’re able to recognize that truth.

        Look we get it, you want completely unrestricted borders and every single corporate rights “trade deal” to pass with full support. You do not care that you are on the verge of another cold war thanks to the current administration and the Clinton Campaign. Ramping up this “Russia” rhetoric is a huge mistake and I am actually fearful for the future because of it. I am not American, I support neither of the main candidates running for POTUS, HOWEVER, I am not blind and it was clear that Trump absolutely crushed it last night. He completely defused the 2005 tape, and hammered on Clinton for horrible judgment, untrustworthiness and duplicity.

        Donald Trump is, relatively speaking, a moron but he is earnest and in a time when people are so fed up with politicians that someone who actually seems like they are trying to change something is going to do amazingly. That is the reason Brexit happened, people were FED UP with the “status quo” of politics and politics as usual.

        If you are happy with the way the world and the country is going I respect that, but I disagree entirely and will not allow people like you to control the narrative anymore.

    Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State during Barack Obama’s first term was an unmitigated disaster for many nations around the world. Neither the Donald Trump campaign nor the corporate media have adequately described how a number of countries around the world suffered horribly from Mrs. Clinton’s foreign policy decisions.


    • GStorm

      Dead on. She is indefensible.

    • Batters Box

      Hillary and her minions cannot accept the fact they are on the side of an inept provenly dangerous idiot leaving nations in the wake of her destruction,people displaced, and the deaths of many which continue to this day.

  • Rob Mann

    Hahahaha you have lost your damn minds! Trump DESTROYED her!

  • Rachel Crawford

    Did you watch the same debate as I did??
    Trump was amazing, spot on, and killary lied through her fangs the entire time.

  • Maureen Mack Lindekugel

    trump sniffling is probably just a habit… give it a rest. You want to talk Cocain, go back to when Bill was governor… better yet… look up Clinton Chronicles if you have the guts to listen to it… this is where Bill and Hillary started all the lies, drug running and mafia tactics…I dare you

  • GStorm

    Disgraceful that this site co-ops the term progressive. Clinton was awful. Her answer to having a public and private position on things was basically “Abraham Lincoln…good man…Putin…bad man.” I mean wtf? Then she had the nerve with a straight face to say Trump’s words are used by terrorists as a recruiting tool. Like all the bombs and drones that killed innocent civilians that she favors and supported as SOS weren’t? We know Mohammed Atta, one of the masterminds on 9/11 turned terrorist after a NATO bomb took out a hospital in the Yugoslavian nonsense she pushed Bill on.

  • Brian

    Sucks for you guys that no one else thinks Clinton won.

  • Carolyn Webb

    Donald Trump says that Obamacare is a terrible disaster that can’t be fixed. The truth is this: Donald is the real disaster who is way beyond repair.

    Donald also says that the insulting remarks he made about women was “Just Locker Room Talk.” Since when is the United States a locker room?

    Anyone who can’t tell the difference between a Country and a Locker Room should never be president!

  • Paul

    Please take off the Obama Rose Colored Glasses. Things aren’t as rosie as you think and I don’t know what debate you were watching
