Clinton vs Trump; Debate 2

Written By: - Date published: 8:25 am, October 10th, 2016 - 235 comments

Round 2 of the Presidential debates. Trump is on the ropes, can Clinton land the knockout blow? Certainly, there’s a lot of Republican Party grandees hoping Hillary puts them out of their misery. Seconds out at 2PM, NZ time.

UPDATE: Obama nailed Trump’s real issue a few minutes ago; it’s insecurity. Video in post.

UPDATE 2: LIVE STREAM now in post.

Trumped

Written By: - Date published: 10:55 am, October 8th, 2016 - 173 comments

It looks all its over for Donald Trump. On the eve of the second Presidential debate, his polling has tanked, the Russians have come out in support of him and his team have run out of money for TV ads. Plus, truly awful video has emerged overnight of him admitting sexual assaults. Has there ever been a worse candidate? And will he still be the right’s candidate in a month’s time?

UPDATE: Trump says he will be a better man. Pearl Jam sue.
