The Clinton/Trump debate

Trump started strong with his bluster and bullying, commanding the stage for about 15 minutes. But thereafter he lost any semblance of focus and rambled, snorted and interrupted Clinton several times when she made factual statements about him. And Clinton, after the initial set back, came on strong with fact after fact about Trump’s history in business, as well his many statements of racism, sexism etc. Trump meanwhile melted down on questions about his taxes, saying that not paying any taxes makes him smart. When asked about his taking advantage of the financial crisis to the detriment of millions of people, he said it was good business. Clinton meanwhile had well prepared answers on most issues and remained poised and confident. I doubt the debate will sway fanatics on either side, but it just might sway some undecideds who still have half a brain toward Clinton.
