What they’re saying about Trump and Clinton

I scored Trump as the victor in the debate because he did what he needed to persuade, whereas Hectoring Hillary’s “teacher’s pet” stylings and grackle voice were offputting. Here’s are some excerpts from what other commentators have to say about Trump and Hillary. What a lot of them have in common is something I noted, which is that Hillary emitted “fried air” — a bunch of orotund phrases that meant nothing.

Scott Adams (whose persuasion filter informed my own analysis):

By tomorrow, no one will remember what either of them said during the debate. But we will remember how they made us feel.

Clinton won the debate last night. And while she was doing it, Trump won the election. He had one thing to accomplish – being less scary – and he did it.

Ace:

Many commentators on the right — I included — are thoroughly colonized by leftist memes. How could we not be? We are constantly mesmerized by them, a thousand cult chants a day whispering at us from our electric soma boxes.

Many are looking at Hillary Clinton’s answers and saying “She won on points.”

Did she?

Because what did she really say? On national security and ISIS, she offered the novel thought that we must work more closely with our allies.

Really. You don’t say? I’m glad someone had the guts to finally say it.

Now, those whose brains are colonized by leftist viral memes will call that a “good answer.” It’s the accepted Conventional Wisdom answer of the Davoisie and the Davoisie wannabes.

But is it a good answer?

Or is it just insect-talk? (Insect talk being my own word for something so trivial and brainless it doesn’t even rise to the level of small-talk.)

Clinton said a lot of crap like this last night — she said that to improve race relations, we needed to build more trust in the community in police, and more trust in police in the community.

Um, that is not an answer. That is simply a way of re-stating the problem.

Voters Believe Debate Moderators are in the Tank for Hillary

From the appointment of Barack Obama’s sock puppets Progressive moderators for tonight’s presidential debate to a customized 10” raised lectern  for Clinton to the Crooked One demanding that the biased moderators also perform as real-time fact checkers and do a Candy Crowley* on Donald Trump, voters are convinced that the presidential debate will be rigged in favor of Hillary Clinton.

According to a Rasmussen Telephone poll, 46% of prospective voters believe that Lester Holt-NBC, Anderson Cooper-CNN, Martha Raddatz-ABC and Chris Wallace, host of Fox News Sunday, i.e., tonight’s moderators (and future moderators) are biased against Donald Trump (my emphasis) and will prove that they’re in the tank for Hillary Clinton.

Six percent of voters polled actually believe that moderators will attempt to help Donald Trump while 32% believe that the moderators will be unbiased.

The breakdown by party:

Rasmussen

Seventy-eight percent (78%) of voters who support Trump think the moderators will try to help Clinton. Most Clinton supporters (56%) say the moderators will try to be unbiased, but 20% say they’ll try to help their candidate. Twelve percent (12%) of Clinton voters think the moderators will try to help Trump, compared to just two percent (2%) of Trump supporters who feel that way….

Only for Crowley to correct and walk back the fact check AFTER the debate.

Will history repeat itself this presidential debate season?  How say you?

Hillary Clinton’s Psych Game – Height.

Because 99% of all things surrounding Hillary Clinton is either a lie or an illusion, NBC is gracing Her Highness with a customized 10″ lectern to give viewers the impression that Clinton[i] 5’2″ is right up there (height-wise) with Donald Trump who is 6’3”.

So, let me get this straight, Hillary Clinton who has been hacking for the past year, has had several seizures, blamed her health crisis on pneumonia and has these past few months canceled the majority of her campaign rallies is expected to board a customized 10″ raised podium and stay put under painfully hot stage lights for 90 minutes?

How is that?  If you recall, Hillary Clinton collapsed like a ton of bricks two weeks ago at the 911 Memorial in New York City after being there less than an hour in 79-degree temps under partly cloudy skies.

Am I missing something like a miniature battery operated cooling unit strategically placed in her podium?  (Just wondering.)

Judging from Twitter, Hillary’s big girl podium is fooling no one and then, of course, there is the question as to legitimacy of the customized podium.

[i]              There are some reports that Clinton is actually 5’6” while other reports say 5’4”.  After having found myself several years ago within a few feet of the Crooked One, I have concluded that Hillary who is noticeably shorter than myself is closer to 5’2” the most.
