The debate was awkward.
It was tense.
It was awkward.
And awkward, and awkward.
It was also very revealing.
Anderson Cooper of CNN and Martha Raddatz of ABC were better as moderators than the biased liberal moderator from the first debate and the VP debate.
However, Martha Raddatz did a terrible job of arguing with Donald Trump, rather than just asking questions like a real moderator.
Anderson Cooper showed his passive aggression in his actions and body language, specifically at the first question. It was probably the worst way to ask about the leaked audio recording of Trump’s disgusting “locker room” talk about women with Billy Bush.
But for all the back and forth and all the issues raised, Trump did a very good job of sticking to the issues, and Hillary did a terrible job of presenting herself.
But the most revealing thing about the debate was their discussion about the Supreme Court.
What kind of Supreme Court justices will Hillary Clinton appoint?
“I want to appoint Supreme Court justices who understand the way the world really works, who have real life experience, who have not just been in a big law firm … but … they actually understand what people are up against.”
In other words, lots of unconstitutional social engineering, judicial activism, legislating from the bench, instead of interpreting the law based on the Constitution.
She also affirmed her support to protect Roe v. Wade, the gay marriage decision, but also appoint justices who would overturn Citizens United v. FCC.
As for Trump, he wants to appoint justices just like Antonin Scalia:
“I’m looking for judges … I actually picked 20 of them: highly respected, highly thought of, very beautifully reviewed. People who will respect the Constitution of the United States, and I think that this is so important.”
He later mentioned protecting the Second Amendment, which is under assault.
In other words, conservatives or strict constructionists as opposed to judicial activists.
The difference could not be clearer between the two candidates, and the stakes could not be higher for this county.
