7:45 – OK, who else is freaking out because I totally am.
7:55 – as I saw Bill and Melania appear on stage, I wondered at the coincidence of both candidates having spouses who are known for being loose in the pants. Of course, Hillary’s spouse is known for other things, too.
8:02 – will the stupid commentators just shut the ef up? I can’t hear about the idiotic enthusiasm gap any more.
8:05 – N is asking why Hillary doesn’t get a stool to stand on to look taller. I reminded him that she is not Putin.
8:08 – Hillary is addressing the people. That’s good.
8:09 – Trump or no Trump, anybody who promises a return to the industrial era is either lying or misguided.
8:11 – “trumped up trickle down.” I ❤❤❤ this.
8:12 – Trump is saying he didn’t inherit and is self-made?? 😆😆😆
8:14 – Trump is rambling. The moderator tries to get him to answer but it’s useless.
8:16 – Hillary is so right when she says that somebody will be the clean energy superpower and why shouldn’t it be us? We need to look to the future, not the past.
8:19 – it’s a conversation between the past and the future.
8:20 – Trump is repeating the same weird question about 30 years for the 3rd time. Boring.
8:21 – he has now said the same thing for the 5th time.
8:22 – “Donald, I know you live in your own reality.” Damn right.
8:25 – Trump is trying to play catch up. Good. 🎉🎊🍨
8:26 – Trump will cut the taxes of the very rich because they will create tons of tremendous jobs. Oh, Lordy. How do you spell “dumb”?
8:29 – she’s poised and in control and he’s angry and all over the place.
8:30 – I could sit here for an hour listening to the beautiful sounds of “TRICKLE DOWN DOESN’T WORK. ” It doesn’t fucking work. Let’s move on.
8:32 – Trump says he doesn’t need to show his tax returns because he can tell us how much money he made this year. Like anybody gives a crap.
PEOPLE, HOW CAN YOU VOTE FOR THIS. . . THING? He’s incoherent, he’s pathetic. A confused, rambling old man.
8:39 – I have no idea what Trump is saying. He’s entirely incoherent.
8:59 – yes, finally, the birtherism question! Trump insists that Hillary started birtherism. The best!
9:00 – Trump bombs on the birtherism issue.
9:04 – Trump seems to be competing with Hillary in who loves Obama most. Weird.
9:06 – seriously, I have no idea what he’s talking about.
9:09 – she calls him Donald and puts him on the defensive every time. He calls her Secretary Clinton and explains himself.
9:10 – and again I lost the thread. Who weighs 400 pounds on the bed? Which bed? Huh?
9:14 – the real tragedy is that there are people who hear Trump’s weak ramblings and think they make sense.
9:22 – Hillary openly mocks Trump and the audience giggles, too.
9:27 – why did people dump on Holt? He’s doing a good job.
9:37 – Mommy, Hiwwary is not nice! She is mean to me, Mommy! Whine, whine, whine.
