The memorable moments from last night's presidential debate.

Okay so this happened right before the debate and it got the whole internet abuzz over it.

But not in a good way.

Apparently Trump had planned to seat these women with his family during the debate, but the officials put the kibosh on that idea.

One of the other memorable moments was when Trump bizarrely threatened to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Hillary Clinton for the ultimate purpose of throwing her in jail.

As Vox points out not only would it be impossible for a President Trump to launch an investigation against a former political rival, but threatening to do so is a threat to our democracy.

Another of my personal favorite moments from last night was when Trump essentially admitted that he had not paid taxes for years.

Of course Trump then went on to blame Hillary for the existence of the tax loophole seemingly unaware that one Senator from New York is unable to change tax policies all on her own.

And of course then there was the lurking.
Holy shit, that was creepy as hell!

One body language expert suggested that this was a "pre-assault indicator."

Yeah it was NOT a good night for the Donald, and things are only going to get worse from here.

In fact new polling shows Hillary with an eleven point lead.

Well you know that this will inspire a Twitter rant from Trump any minute now.

I imagine that in the next debate they will have to wheel Trump out in a Hannibal Lecter to keep him from physically assaulting Hillary Clinton in frustration.

    Was Melania Trump subtly signaling her support for Democratic presidential nominee and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton through her wardrobe choice this evening?

    That was the speculation by the wardrobe-readers on Twitter.

    Social Media Spots Startling Message in Melania Trump’s Hot-Pink Debate Outfit.

    1. Anonymous12:01 PM

      Not only was Melania wearing a "pussy" blouse she looked like a cold wooden pole when he gave her a kiss after the debate. Ivanka looked like she was about to cry during the whole thing. I think at the very least The Donald is verbally abusive when he's angry and I bet he's been very,very angry for the last couple of weeks.
      What a loser and a creep.

      I seriously doubt that Melanonmia has enough brain cells to send "secret messages" to the public.

      My take is donnie chose it. He was sending a message to the locker room boys, this is mine!!

      Too bad his supporters can't do math and calculate that her blouse cost more than their weekly salaries and yet they pay taxes and he doesn't.

    4. Anonymous1:38 PM

      It may have been one of Melania's handmaidens or a stylist. She must have a staff of 30 to 50 that help her with motherhood, all the maintenance, shopping and so on.

    5. Anonymous1:53 PM

      Somewhere this morning I read (and there is video) that Trump ditched Melania when they arrived at the venue. He got out of the vehicle, didn't wait for her, and just walked in! Without her! Trouble between the sheets in Trump Tower??

    6. Anonymous2:05 PM

      Pink pantsuit with "pussy" bow.

      Could be Melania is lashing out the only way she can, through fashion.

      I'll bet after Trump reads today's reports he makes her burn that outfit. We won't see her again until the bruises heal.

    7. I've seen no indication that Melania is that clever. I think it was a horrible coincidence, and based on her hulking, stalking, frustrated, rage-filled husband at the debate last night, she is going to pay dearly for not thinking about the style term for that collar/bow before deciding to wear it.

    8. Anonymous5:42 PM

      If Hillary does indeed favor the bow, it could be after the criticism Melania has received at past events Trump chose that outfit, thinking that imitating Clinton's bowed top and pantsuit would make Melania look more like a first Lady. I wouldn't be surprised. I think he controls everything and dressing his wife like a Barbie Doll would be completely within his character. (Even a model would know that color is not flattering on her.)

      If Trump *is* responsible, then it's just another thing for which he has only himself to blame for but for which he will blame others and take it out on them.

      No wonder Melania was staying as far away from him as possible.

      I hope Marla and Tiffany are willing to take Melania in when Donald dumps her. Melania will have no money, no saleable skills and a limited command of the English language.

    Yep, Trump couldn't get it up for the second debate and had to use the alleged victims in that PR stunt yesterday.

    I remember hearing on Friday night, after he did that so-called apology at midnight, that on Saturday he was going to be making an appearance somewhere live and saying more on the matter. That never happened. Instead, he concocted the plan to contact the alleged victims and parade them around on debate day. It doesn't matter to me whether they were happy to do it or not. What matters is that he contacted them (no, they didn't contact him) and had no problem using them as his Viagra to get through that second debate.

    Everything with him is in some way sexual. Even when he's acting as though he's defending women, he is getting off on it.

    1. Anonymous3:15 PM

      I sense Rudy Ghouliani's touch also, too in that parade of women. He is desperate to put tRump into the WH, so he can be A.G. In the Hannibal Lechter contraption, tRump bears a strong resembelence to his son Eric, doesn't he?

    2. Anonymous5:50 PM

      It was Trump and Bannon that planned to parade them in at the last minute to confront Bill and sit in the Trump Family box.

      Debate admins stifled that stunt. And it was a stunt. It had Trump's fingerprints all over it.

      I'm am surprised Giuliani is sticking with the sinking ship. He of all people knows how toxic Trump is and that he has no possible path to win.

    Good article. When I saw the Billy Bush/Trump video, I hated everything about it. What I hated most was how as soon as the bus door opened Trump acted like a different person (just as all abusers do in front of family and colleagues) and put on the charm that he knew he was supposed to put on. Then, Billy Bush wouldn't let that be--he felt the need to use what he and Trump had shared on the bus, had talked about, and give Trump a gift by pressuring Arianne Zucker into having physical contact with Trump. The two males were acting upon an inside joke in front of Zucker. It was ugly.

    1. Anonymous12:50 PM

      I hated that part too - they Billy Bush enabled him. If Arianne had wanted to give either one a hug, she could have. But Bush had to pressure. Yuck!!!

    The stalking was frightful. I have never before concerned for the safety of a debater before. This time I feared for Clinton. I know she's a tough gal, but the stalking her with the menacing look on his face made me very uncomfortable and fearful for her. His evil shone through. Why do people like him? He can't go away fast enough for me.

    1. I am sure it was all he could do to not give her "what she had coming." I wonder if her SS detail discussed in advance the potential need to rush the stage.

      He has *no* power over her and nothing angers an abuser more.

      I'm sure some of it was from their "plan" being thwarted by the debate admins.

      He and his top minion Bannon had planned to usher in the four women to the Trump "family" box. Admins got wind and told them if they tried that stunt, security would remove the women. They were still thinking of doing it at the last minute so they could confront Bill as he went to the Clinton box, but decided not to risk an altercation with security on camera broadcast nation wide.

      That is the kind of ugly asshole the Republicans have nominated. They OWN Trump. And these last minute abandoning ship is too little too late.

      I read Paul Ryan is torn between doing the right thing and his party.

      Well, if that is his dilemma, he need to step down right now. Because doing the right thing should always take precedent. If it doesn't, you don't deserve to be a public servant.

    Trump fails to defuse video scandal

    ...But let’s face it, many voters wanted to see how he would handle questions about that video and he did poorly. Trump’s apology seemed perfunctory and he again dismissed the comments as “locker room talk” that in no way excused it.

    1. Anonymous2:16 PM

      I'm surprised he didn't flat out use the juvenile excuse "But Mom, all the other guys say it."

  15. Anonymous12:40 PM

    ...What horrified me about that tape wasn’t more wild talk from you, but the dark, terrible reflection of my own duplicitous attitudes toward women.

    I hate to admit this — I am ashamed to admit it ­— but I heard an echo of myself in the words “locker room talk.”

    I’ve never bragged about my efforts to seduce a married woman, nor have I used the exact phrasing you did when you described how and where you would grab a woman.

    But I have engaged in such ribald discourse. I’ve used foul language and discussed sex and women in the most sordid terms in the company of other men and close friends.

    Like you claim, I am not proud of that admission. And like you, I know a lot of men talk that way about women, especially in circumstances when they believe they can do so without consequence.

    Your hot mic tape made me examine my own life, the language I’ve used, the entertainment I’ve chosen, the relationships I’ve had and how I’ve treated women, either directly or indirectly in my life.

    Before the debate, my husband and I joked about how great it would be if Hillary came with a container of Tic Tacs in her pocket.
