Open Thread for the Commander-in-Chief Forum. Update!

This event is on NBC and MSNBC at 4:00 PM Alaska time, which means 8:00 PM for those of you on the east coast.

I think it is going to be very interesting and possibly quite important as it is the first time before the debates that we will see Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump appear on the same stage, albeit not at the same time.

Hillary is going to take the first half hour with Trump bumbling through the second. 

They will also be taking questions from a live audience comprised mainly of members of the military.

I of course will be tweeting along with this as well and you can follow me by clicking here.

I have to admit that my first instinct tells me that Trump is going to face plant hard tonight, since I have been listening to him speak on military issues lately and it is like hearing a three year old discussing quantum mechanics.

However there are likely to be tough questions for Hillary as well.

Well I have my popcorn and beverage of choice at the ready so let's do this thing.

Update: Crap that was over fast.

Here are a few of my tweets for those who missed this first half with Hillary.




Next up, Trump. Time to open up the bar.

Update 2: Okay here are a few of my Trump tweets:
That was supposed to be "going." Drunk tweeting at its finest.
If you are still on the fence as to who to vote for you are a fucking moron!

There I said it, and it needed to be said.

    BREAKING: U.S. Senate Moves To Investigate Donald Trump For Human Trafficking

    Excerpt: By law, people visiting the United States from a foreign land are not allowed to attain employment via an American company. Trump, however, is known for not only hiring illegals, but hiring them for the specific reason of not having to follow US labor laws.

    Models hired by Donald Trump’s Model Management have come out against the mogul, saying they were barely able to making ends meet after paying the high cost of rent and fees bestowed on them by the company. Trump profited $2 million dollars in the 17 years the company has been in existence.

    The openly anti-immigrant candidate is being accused of “illegally importing” women to work as models in his agency, and while this makes him look like a giant fool, it could also hold legal ramifications that would leave Trump paying a hefty fine, and possibly even serving jail time for human trafficking.

    ...Trump has been telling the whole world about how he’ll make our economy boom. He’s going to cut taxes, but not cut Medicare or Social Security. He tells blue collar workers that he’ll renegotiate all our trade agreements to bring their jobs back. He’s going to balance the federal budget within seven years. He has something for everyone, but no plan to pay for any of it.

    Or does he?

    Trump’s senior economic adviser, Stephen Moore, held a hush-hush meeting with the vice president of the Council for National Policy, Bill Walton. In that meeting, Moore revealed a lot of the ins and outs of the campaign’s ideas for paying for his plan, and the whole thing smacks of far-right, free-market, trickle-down, anti-government conservatism unlike anything we’ve seen before.

    Moore wants Trump to eliminate the Department of Education, Department of Commerce, and Department of Energy, just to start. That will cost, oh, about 150,000 jobs or so. Not to mention that, with the elimination of the Department of Commerce, we’ll lose the U.S. Patent Office, the U.S. Census Bureau, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and more. Trump believes, however, that this is the source of a lot of crony capitalism and corporate welfare. So make it disappear!

    They also want to get rid of the Department of Education. That, however, will cost us a uniform accreditation process for colleges and universities, along with everything having to do with grants and student loans. No biggie, everyone can just get private student loans from their own banks, right? Right. Even if they’re the poorest of the poor. They’d have to, seeing as how it’s not likely Congress will pass universal post-secondary education anytime soon.

    It’s Moore that’s pushing Trump to do something about the Department of Energy. including ending the energy subsidies. Eliminating the entire department will probably cost us every national laboratory we have that deals with energy research and development. This includes the famous Los Alamos National Laboratory, which was responsible for developing the atom bomb. They also work on nuclear research, cryogenics, and more (maybe they’ll just hand these over to private companies with profit motives).

    He actually said, in that meeting:

    “I mean, my God, why do we need an Energy Department? All the Energy Department has done in the last 25 years is make energy prices more expensive!”

    Donald Trump’s Latino Problem Is Actually Getting Worse, New Polling Shows

    What’s even more shocking is that the online survey was conducted before Trump’s disastrous trip to Mexico and his anti-immigrant speech in Arizona – two events likely to turn off Latino voters even more.

    To put it in proper perspective, former Republican nominee Mitt Romney carried nearly 40 percent of the Latino vote in Florida in 2012 – and he still lost the state to President Obama.

Vote Hillary. We can't let this happen.

      Having grown up in the 1950's and 1960's I simply cannot imagine how today's GOP is willing to fawn over Putin who is nothing less than a Stalin-wanna-be. Slightly o/t, I'm not at all surprised that the media is praising Trump. The media always seems to prefer bluster to fact, show to reality. Let's hope that when people are actually voting in November, they realize that there is no choice: it's Hillary Clinton or Putin's not very bright puppet.

      So how come Trump and company hasn't said a word about the passing of their mentor, Phyllis? I thought there's be a GoFundMe to erect her statue in Central Park or at least on the grounds of Trump Towers.

    Trump Held Fundraiser For Pam Bondi At His Palm Beach Mansion After She Passed On Lawsuit

    WASHINGTON ― In March 2014, Donald Trump opened his 126-room Palm Beach mansion, Mar-a-Lago, for a $3,000-per-person fundraiser for Pam Bondi, the Florida attorney general who had recently decided not to join a lawsuit against Trump University and was facing a tough reelection campaign....

    All this money created the appearance that Donald Trump was thanking Bondi for halting any further investigation into his failed seminar programs. Trump’s efforts to boost her politically came during and after a period when Bondi was under pressure to pursue allegations that those seminars were defrauding consumers.

    The use of Mar-a-Lago alone was a donation of some value. Space at the resort is expensive to rent, and Trump has charged his own presidential campaign roughly $140,000 per event for use of the mansion.

    In contrast, the Republican Party of Florida paid only $4,855.65 for the Bondi fundraiser, cutting a check on March 25, 2014....

    Senator Calls for Homeland Security to Investigate Trump's Model Agency

    "I am extremely concerned by the claims levied against Trump Model Management."

    JAMES WEST SEP. 7, 2016

    Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) is calling on federal authorities to investigate Trump Model Management for alleged labor and immigration violations, in the wake of a Mother Jones investigation of the company.

    Three former Trump models, all non-US citizens, told Mother Jones they worked for the GOP nominee's agency while on tourist visas. Immigration laws require employers to seek work authorization for any foreigner they hire. Financial and immigration records included in a recent lawsuit filed by a fourth former Trump model indicate that she also worked for Trump's agency without a proper visa.

    "I am extremely concerned by the claims levied against Trump Model Management and ask that you open an investigation into the company's employment practices," Boxer wrote in a Wednesday letter to León Rodríguez, the director of the US Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS), a part of the Department of Homeland Security.

    Boxer wrote that the allegations in Mother Jones' exposé were "disturbing," and she called on the agency to "make clear that immigration and labor violations like these will not be tolerated." The letter was also sent to Labor Secretary Tom Perez.

    Two of the former models told Mother Jones that they were coached on how to evade the scrutiny of immigration and customs officers by using fake pretenses for entering the country and even writing false addresses on customs forms....

    You don’t have to have a degree from Trump University to figure out this stinks.

    The Donald claims that after the Iraq war "we should have taken the oil."
    Why doesn't someone ask him, "HOW would we have done that?"
    Iraq is a sovereign nation. Is he seriously suggesting that the United States can invade other sovereign nations and take their stuff?
    Something else no one ever asks Donald, "HOW are you going to PAY for that?"

    Hillary talks about getting things done and Hillary KNOWS HOW TO GET THINGS DONE in Washington.
    Trump is all bluff: he doesn't have a CLUE how Washington works so he just throws out nonsense. You can see it in his face, his posture. I'd LOVE to play poker with Donald Trump. If you can't see Donald Trump's "tells" when he's on these debate-type things, then you don't know how to play poker.

      Matt did ask him, and he bluffed. He's a buffoon. And each event is making that clearer. How any general can even look this cheater and liar in the eye and think he's capable of being CIC is terrifying.

    When Hillary says it was a mistake voting for the Iraq war, I wish she would add because Bush et all lied to Congress about the situation. The GOP has very short memories and needs to be reminded of the facts.

    Trump is an idiot, he likes Putin because he says nice things about him sounds like a kindergartner. I bet Putin is laughing his head off how easy it is to manipulate Traitor Trump.

      Serves him right.

      About time the journalism community started to police themselves and hold each other accountable for doing their jobs. If they had, we wouldn't have Donald Trump as a candidate. Or have had Sarah Palin for that matter.
