The third Presidential debate will be held at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas at 9PM EST — less than a half-hour from now! — and will run 90 minutes with no commercial interruptions. Chris Wallace of FOX News will moderate, and has selected the following six topics: “Debt and entitlements [groan]; immigration; the economy; the Supreme Court; foreign hot spots; and ‘fitness to be President.'” Here are some viewing options.
“Presidential debate: What to watch for in the last Clinton-Trump face-off” CNN. “Clinton is posed to pivot any WikiLeaks talk to Russia.” So surely Trump is prepared for this?
4 Things To Watch In The Last Presidential Debate NPR. “The Las Vegas debate will give her a chance to explain why she was so chummy with Wall Street bankers when they were paying her hundreds of thousands of dollars to speak to them.” So surely Trump is prepared for this?
What Hillary Clinton must accomplish in the last debate LA Times. “Yes, she called half of [Trump voters] ‘deplorables.’ She might even want to apologize for that — no matter how deplorable the slogans on some of their T-shirts are.” Fantasy!
Presidential Debate: How Will Trump and Clinton Handle Sexual Assault Allegations? NYT. “How he and Mrs. Clinton approach the debate in Las Vegas will go a long way in determining just how sordid the remainder of this race will be — and how difficult the healing process will be once it ends.” Gawd, “the healing process.” The Times is getting worse and worse.
In case you can’t bear to watch, but want to hang out in the comments section, here’s another Rube Goldberg device:
(I had no idea Rube Goldberg devices would be a genre on YouTube, but they are!)
Please add your comments as the debate proceeds!
