6. Thoughts

The good news is Trump can't claim Lester has been involved in bias against him.


I'm not really sure Lester is tough enough to pin Trump down to answering questions.

7. Me too!

Who knows if Rump will even show up for the last two. He will be obliterated by Hillary in the first one, and the little egomaniac might not come back for Round 2. He can dish it out but not take it.

9. I'm good with that.

 

I watch LH multiple times a week. I have always liked his demeanor. Not sure how he will do moderating Clinton/Trump but I do like that he will be doing it. Time will tell.

12. Chris Wallace is a very tough interviewer in my opinion - and I have

seen him rip into repukes too. Think it will be the best debate - purely from an intellegence level. Not impressed at all with ANY of the rest. They will just let them say what they want and probably little intelligent followup

13. Letting Trump say whatever he wants will show voters what he is all about.

No doubt the pundits are frantically working on spin tactics but viewers hearing his words unfiltered will be good. If the mods would simply hold him to his time allotment, that will be a bonus.

Hillary can point out that he didn't answer the question or that he made another insult/racist statement, whatever. Maybe she can even say, "There's no way anyone can spin you out of that one, Mr. Trump." One short sentence, then she can answer the question.
