Donald's Debate Disaster
What did we cats like best about the Presidential debate? Are we allowed to say "everything"? Well, that post would take too long to write. But here are a few of our favorite things.
Donald Trump's huffy reference to those awful, unfair, terrible ads that Hillary's been running. Nearly all of which feature him, um, saying things that he's actually said.
Hillary's greeting during the opening handshake. "How are you, Donald?" Perfect. A breezy, familiar yet commanding tone. It wasn't long after that that Trump condescendingly inquired how he should address her. "Secretary Clinton — is that OK? Good. I want you to be very happy. It’s very important to me."
Trump's description of the police officers in Dallas having been "killed very violently." We're trying to picture how someone could be gently shot to death. And how did you like that Amy Carter moment Trump had? What does his 10-year-old son's facility with computers have to do with cybersecurity?
Hillary springing the story of Alicia Machado on an unsuspecting Trump. "Where did you find this? Where did you find this?" he sputtered, manterrupting like crazy as he had all night. Trump's treatment of Machado is cruel and unforgivable, but we find his "Miss Housekeeping" moniker for a Latina Miss Universe the most offensive of all.
And, of course, the post-debate spin — which Trump, in addition to the debate itself, has decidedly lost. This is despite his penchant for citing unrepresentative online polls (including one that wasn't even taken). We cats HISS at the ridiculous GOP nominee, and PURR at our masterful own — of whom we're very proud.
