Flying Death Baby!℠
I know this is German but this is so German.
Swiss, actually, but yeah.
Big thunderstorm outside, please keep power
or don't, it's Trump
Teleprompter text appearing on the screen behind Wallace. Rigged!
NO HAND SHAKE, EVERYBODY PANIC
Hope Scalia isn't your drink word…
Hillz looks good not wearing a penguin suit.
Trump looks like he's about to fall asleep.
Trump all squinty, steely, creepy.
<img src="http://www.absoluteanime.com/pokemon/brock.jpg" />
Trump trying out a new look with his eyes.
Trump to appoint 20 justices! Packing the court a la FDR!
Hillz will now dismember him as he knows nothing about law.
Oh jesus fuck
You're saying that bacon cheeseburgers and Cokes with Ailes isn't preparing?
What the hell kind of drug cocktail mix is Trump on tonight?
Animal downers, Seconal, bourbon.
Oh, you were asking about Trump…
I WATCHED HER BE ANGRY
I JUST GOT HOME TELL THEM TO WAIT
Okay, I'll call in a bomb scare.
Thanks that's so sweet.
I cherish women.
I told them to "Fuck Off". Didn't work.
Maybe if you'd yelled "PUSSY!" Trump would get distracted.
GET THE CATS
Hey, I think that will work! *places carefully in toolbox*
Trump doesn't know how to get from Chicago to Gary, Indiana
"I love Gary. He's one of my closest friends"
I'd like to abort this debate tbh
15 minutes in and Chris Wallace has been solid so far. Still a long way to go but I'm pleasantly surprised.
This debate is like being such in the head of your lunatic drunken uncle watching Bill OReilly on Thanksgiving.
"There's someone in my head, but it's not me…"

PUNISH WOMEN! THEY BLEED BUT THEY DON'T DIE!
I've got a 5 that says Climate Change comes nowhere near this debate tonight.
They're not scientists, man.
People say that it isn't even happening. I've heard things.
He's obviously an OB/GYN, though.
Would anyone even take that bet?
Nah, you're all too informed. Worth a shot, though.
Climate change doesn't scare old white people so there's no reason to discuss it.
WHY IS SHIRLEY JONES ON MY TV TALKING ABOUT ROE VS. WADE?
C'mon, get happy!

Fine, Donald, don't have a late term abortion.
I bet his answer would change if he could.
Is it too late for his mother to have one?
Hillary went full awesome in that answer.

long legs are long
It's like a Daniel Boone hat but with cats.
It's the sign of Satan!
I can't see all of Hillary's outfit it's covered by a Flood Advisory
That's because she's a selchie. Many people in Washington know this.
It's a conspiracy. What is the NWS helping you to hide, Secretary Clinton?
Her third button.
IMMIGRATION IS KILLING NEW HAMPSHIRE
CANADIANS. THEY WALK AMONG US.
Where are MY drugs?
Mexican Border Cocaine is a helluva drug.
Trump said hombre and now he thinks he's fluent in Spanish.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA DID HE SAY CLINTON WANTED A WALL HAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Not just "A" wall, "THE" wall!
Bigly, or big league–we decide!
Why do I need a passport just to go to Canada then?
Because Canada hasn't built the wall yet?
CANADA: BUILD THE SNOW FORT ALREADY
CLOSE THE DAMN BORDERS
<img src="http://boringpittsburgh.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/taco-trucks-on-every-corner-pittsburgh-shadyside.jpg" />
You really prepared for this debate.
It's like a magnificent vision of a brave new taco-truck filled world.
I am so voting for Hillary.
Why does my corner lack a taco truck? I feel screwed.
The system doesn't work! Burn it all down!
Alternative: Trump will create negative taco trucks.
OMG that's awesome I'm stealing it.
Holy shit, he used Wikileaks and didn't even use context, his Fox News background showing through.
So many talking points, so little time.
In time for ROOSKIES!!!!!!!!
Putin. Donald's finally getting cranked up.
I don't think Trump wants this debate to stay on Putin for long.
He's losing it now. Red and blustering, compulsive interruptions. Good!
"Putin? Putin who?"
Putin on the Ritz
|YOU"RE THE PUPPET! |!
I was gonna go with James & Bobby Purify's "I'm Your Puppet," but that's good too.
"I'M NOT A POTTED PLANT HERE"
IF it weren't for Syria, Hillz would be okay with Putin?
Did he just claim Japan was ripping us off?
Clinton → Chair → tRump
Clint Eastwood libel!
SHE BROUGHT UP CLIMATE CHANGE, TAKE THAT DEBATE PEOPLE
It's hard to remember but before this election year, candidates for president did not freely call their rivals "liar"

Does Trump think he's running for international trade negotiator or president? Hard to tell.
Help, Chris Wallace has been good outside of one moment so far, what universe have I stumbled into?
Did Wallace just give Obama credit for something?
WHAT IS HAPPENING
Well, that's it. Trump convinced me not to vote for Bill Clinton.
haha! true! Who is he running against, anyway?!
Hillary Clinton was the First Lady of Arkansas 30 years ago.
Heh. Donald is China's customer.
The only thing Trump knows about the Presidency of the United States is that he wants it.
That and that he resents that it's not easy.
Dude, she's gonna get rid of YOU, and that's just on day 1!
Sex scandals? Oh, this'll be an ugly 15 minutes.
Trump's right, the thing he just said was totally false.
It's always someone else's fault, isn't it Donald?
Trump sounds like a condescending scold. I dislike it when men talk in that tone. If he'd had my vote before he'd sure lost it in this debate.
Trump's interrupted her 29 times. Clinton's interrupted only 3. Based off 538 numbers they just posted.
I really wish this sort of tallying thing would spread to everyday life.
What are all the pics of chairs in this thread? Did he say something about a chair?
I love it how he gaslights all these women coming forward about his behavior and that he does it by interrupting Hillary. What an idiot.
He's doing the WRONG thing again. That sunk him last debate.
Nah, women love that stuff.
Trump 31, Clinton 3
He's very consistent.
hahaha! Hillary causes the violence at his rallies? hahahahahaha. Does it ever occur to him to no say things that everyone will mock him for after the debate?
Trump: People in Haiti hate the Clintons.
Haiti: We're too mired in desperate poverty to hate. Also too the Clinton Foundation helps us. What do you do?
They're more worried about hurricane recovery right now tbh
Purchase 6' oil paintings of Donald Trump. Problem?
Tax returns pigfucker!!!!!!!!
GET HIM OUTTA HERE!
Cubs bats have come alive.
Your laws made me do bad things!
Uh-oh, the rigged thing is coming up.
HE WOULDN'T ADMIT TO ACCEPTING THE ELECTION RESULTS LIVE ON AIR HOLY SHIT
"I'll keep you in suspense."
Who the fuck says that? In public?
A sociopathic megalomaniac with narcissistic personality disorder.
An orange muppet.
A hair piece with a meat stand.
Do you have a mental image of Trump sitting in his underwear, no shirt and black knee high socks sitting in front of the TV, hour after hour, getting progressively more cranked and refusing to look away…
Haha. He wouldn't be saying this at all if he had any possibility of winning.
… *gets out eye bleach*
I'm guessing it was a CC typo and tRump did not mention Sartre.
He's going all in on his fantasy election fraud and will not say that he supports the bedrock principle of our democratic institutions.
When a Republican loses Chris Wallace…
Wallace lost control of this thing a while ago…
Absolutely god-damned right.
My cat just changed the channel with her butt. There's a Donald Trump pussy joke in there somewhere.
that is awesome!
Do you believe in miracles?
Your cat is too smart.
She changed it to PBS, which is showing a tour of a logging camp. I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT ALL MEANS
Your cat is working for Red Green?
it's OK to be a Lumberjack.
Trump is ready to tear America down for not getting his way.
I still don't get the chair reference.
<img src="https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CEDjIMMWEAEQffv.jpg" width="400" height="400">
Dude, Bill Clinton meets with everyone there. Just ask Obama on his last Israel trip.
Bill Clinton is notorious for hanging around too long at parties and holding court on policy in people's kitchens when they really just want him to go home.
TRUMP CAN READ?!?!?!?!
Mosul is not OURS!!!!!!!!!
LOL DID HE CLAIM THIS ONLY HAPPENED BECAUSE CLINTON IS RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT WHAT IS HE EVEN DOING RIGHT NOW
Trump is so so Freudian. His subconscious is screaming at the world what he is really like by all the adjectives he describes her with: "Disrespectful" "Liar" "Horrible" "Cheater" "Crooked" etc.
Is someone keeping count? Someone needs to keep count.
I think we're at 5 right now.
Trump also has no idea about how to conduct a modern war in the middle east, along with not knowing anything about strategy, international politics, Muslims, Arabs, Kurds…
I believe that's called "Babbling"
I think sexually assaulting women is bad judgment but that's just me.
Pretty sure it's a serious character flaw. too.
I wouldn't bring up Wikileaks again, if I were you.
Aren't you glad you're not him though?
Thrilled. I couldn't pull that act off for one minute.
What's A Leppo?
What's a Leppo?
the 4th Marx brother?
Trump really does believe he can just stroll on to the world stage, huff and bluster and talk really tough and people will do what he says. He's dangerously deluded.
I feel so much stupider every time I have to listen to Trump.
It's like there's some kind of intelligence-sucking force field, or his words are stealth intelligence destroying linguistic viruses.
Either one is bad.

The debate is going to move on to standard debate subjects now, but it’s impossible to forget that a truly extraordinary moment just occurred, one that will become the signal clip from this debate and possibly this campaign. A candidate representing one of the two major parties refused to accept the outcome of an American election. Think of the implications of that: Not only does it risk civil violence on the part of supporters who will be similarly encourage to resist an election, but it undermines the most fundamental democratic institution on which the country is based. Imagine the reaction of countries struggling to achieve democracy when a candidate questions whether an American ideal is legitimate. The political system will survive Trump, but the cynicism and doubt sown tonight will take a long time to heal.
Forgot about this and just turned it on. Yep. Trump's still a dick. Did he call her a whore yet?
Julia Azari 10:22 PM
When asked whether he would accept a Clinton victory in November, Trump’s ultimate response was, “I’ll keep you in suspense.” I don’t mean to editorialize here, but this is perhaps the most alarming thing I’ve heard a presidential candidate say on a debate stage. In some ways, this is almost as bad — or maybe worse — than Trump coming out and saying he wouldn’t accept a loss. There are two principles at stake beyond accepting the legitimacy of the election system. The first is being honest about one’s plans and stances. The American presidency is not the latest Tana French novel — leaders can’t keep the people in suspense. The second is that presidential candidates cannot cast themselves in the role of investigating elections. Trump can’t do this, Clinton can’t do this. The only answer is that evaluating the fairness of the election is up to the commissions that are appointed to do this, not to the candidates themselves. Regardless of your policy beliefs, this is not how democracy works.
yeah, no shit. That alone should immediately disqualify him for this office.
Trump is doing a creepy stare right at the camera. Ew.
IT'S A CONSPIRACY
You know What Else hasn't been discussed until tonight?
<img src="http://i1.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/facebook/000/064/297/kitler.jpg" />
Is there even a studio audience? They're so quiet. That's so not Fox's style. They've clearly thrown Trump under the bus or they'd let the audience treat this like a saloon brawl.
Walrus has been stricter with the audience than he has drumpf.
This is in Vegas, right? They're all playing keno on their phones.
To be fair, I thought the Syria NFZ was not a good idea before .
TREMENDOUS JOBS, THE GREATEST JOBS, WE WILL WIN BIGLY
THE BESTEST BIGLY JOBS. THE BIGLIEST.
All we need to do is start a war that is once again fought only in Europe ,the ME., China, and Japan, and we'll once again be the top of the economic ladder.
Social Security doesn't take a fucking dime from the budget. Shut the fuck up, Walrus!
Trump is glad that health care premiums are skyrocketing for poor people. Because that helps advance his agenda.
It's like the entire Republican Id for the last 25 years.
I honestly didn't think I could hate drumpf more…
"nasty woman"?! Pot/kettle, etc.
Ooooooooooooo be NASTY!!!
A Positive Note? yeah, good luck with that one Chris.
jesus fuck, can he grift any louder?
Learned from Sarah Palin!
Palin was his guest here tonight.
How galling for her that the camera never panned the audience, and drumpf didn't mention her name.
Yeah, it's almost like these stunts mean nothing.
It really was weird how Fox didn't treat this like a Primary debate.
It's a new world!
She raising the money from the people and that's not the way it works? Speak English, mofo!
Twitter is sure having fun.
The Hill" WATCH LIVE: Trump calls Clinton 'a nasty woman' as she talks about entitlements http://hill.cm/63aOqfe #debate
OH MY GOD IT'S FINALLY OVER? NO MORE DEBATES?
<img src="https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CvDBhzQUIAElsab.jpg:large" />
I should be thrilled, but I'm just punchdrunk-numb.
It'll take time to sink in that we survived the debate portion of this election.
Trump closing: [insult] [insult] [unsubstantiated claim] [boast] [empty promise] [empty promise] [vacuous nonsense]
Interesting to watch Trump interact with his family onstage. Seems they've practiced how he acts with his female relatives.

There are actual people undecided after this shit? Dumbasses.
God help us.
I am so ready.
I'M WITH HIM
.@KellyannePolls on CNN: "we're going to accept the result of the election because we're going to win the election." Think about that logic.
My head hurts.
Thank you Bernie.
Haha, Patton Oswalt:
This is like watching Daria debate Yosemite Sam.

Trump Support Collapses In Mitch McConnell’s Home State
Haha. Take that, Kim Davis.
This is good news for Baby Doc Paul!
Honestly it takes hard work to blow a 12-point lead in a red state.
That Trump really is a can-do kinda guy, he is.
His failures the the biggest. The Best. They're yuuuuge.
Local CBS is now trying to spin this heavily toward Trump, absolutely disgusting.
That would take some serious twisting. How do you twist his calling her "nasty?"
They didn't cover it. They only covered Clinton's scandals and Trump's denials about sexual assault allegations.
That's almost cheating.
Atrios posts Nasty Girl. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bfLZfyphg0M

Thank you, Donald. You made me cringe so hard during this debate I formed two pearls in my asshole.
That's probably the nicest thing that happened all night.
Indians in the World Series! Cubs winning!! Dream series still possible!!!!!!
What is happening? Did the LHC finally rip a hole in spacetime?
Trump's performance tonight was horrific, frightening and dangerously deranged and the Breitbart crowd will love it and declare him the Big Winner.
Normal people will think he's horrific, frightening and dangerously deranged, of course, and I hope they get out and vote.
Only Breitbart, and somehow, WHIO, will believe that shit.
I'm going to photoshop one of those "I Want To Believe" posters with Trump, at some point.
Apropos of nothing, but my ex, who is now a good friend and painted my avatar, became a grandmother. The child is called Aoife, and it turns out |Aoife was a badass|.
Congrats to her! Awesome name.
Wow, congrats to her, then. Ohthat Aoife! There was an Irish woman pirate queen who was wildly successful at Piratin' but that's not her I think…
Congratulations to her!
Let the spoiling begin!
Important note: Nate Silver will be on the Late Show tonight. Because awesome.
It was 87 degrees F in Baltimore today, breaking a record high from 1969. Best ignore it. Let's just all talk about imaginary walls and magical tax cuts and threatening brown people roaming our neighborhoods instead.
It was in the 90s here today but somehow felt much hotter. Very weird for mid-October.
I don't know about you, but I plan on acting like nothing's wrong until I slide beneath the waves, just like Atlantis.
It will be cooler under the water anyway, once the atmosphere heats up.
At the behest of La Signora_Quarantanova, we turned on Fox News to watch the commentary. I was all right through Trump's weasel-nosed press agent and the token Demo shill, but then they brought on Bill Bennet and I had to bail.
Are you hoping this shock therapy will cure her?
