Hillary's opening statement should start

I know my opponent put restrictions on fact checking him ( look straight into camera) but feel free to fact check me at any time during the debate. I'm not going to waste your valuable time by countering every lie he tells but rather present my vision for the future. There is nothing stopping you, the American voter from fact checking my opponent in real time,even though the moderator won't. With that said, let me talk about what I will do as president.

The police and tbi

Mr Scott's killing reminded me of a patient I had years ago. I had gotten a call that a black male was being brought into the crisis unit after having a violent psychotic episode in the community. What saved his life I think was someone decided he needed a hospital instead of jail.
Anyway they said he was tearing up a store and threatening to kill people. Before he got to me his mother called and informed me he was a war vet, had suffered a blast injury & tbi as well as ptsd. When he got to me, 6 cops bought him in, he had been tasered, he had bruises & abrasions, he was cuffed & had leg irons and they carried him in. He was unable to follow the multiple contradictory commands and was still trying to fight the police. I told them to take him out of the hall and bring him to a seclusion room and then I told them to step away from him. The cops disagreed and said he was dangerous and they wouldn't help me if he attacked me. I said fine.
The 1st thing I said was thank you for your service. I lowered my voice and told him I was a nurse, that I would put my body between him and anyone who tried to hurt him but in order to take his restraints off he had to listen to everything I told him. I told the officers to stand in the hall. He heard me order them out and saw them leave. I told him I had control of the situation but was going to let him tell me when I could remove the cuffs. The cops were pissed because it was taking too long but I told them they were in my house with my rules.
So he told me to release the restraints and I did and he cried in my arms. Later he explained he had a flashback and couldn't understand all the noise around him, he said they were speaking a language that was not English.

Trump can now pay himself $5mil

Remember when trump said he'd donate $5m to who ever proves Obama was born here? He can get the foundation to use other people's $ to pay him for proof.

I confess I had a medical emergency today

It's not terribly hot, mid 80's but very humid in Virginia. I was out doing yard work and cleaning the dogs yard. I pushed myself to get finished but admit I started feeling woozy and staggered up to my porch sweating profusely and had to stop and take a breath before climbing up the 3 steps to my porch. I'm feeling much better after taking the extraordinary life saving measurs of getting a drink of water and sitting in front of a fan. Whew, that was near death.

Joy Reid is ripping the trumpet

I have to say MSNBC and CNN have moments of clarity which the trump surrogates can't seem to handle. The trump campaign is in hospice care.

Hillary speaks for me

It's been a long wait. My 1st political hero was Shirley Chisholm and that's the era that shaped me. I remember not being able to buy birth control pills without a husband to approve, couldn't get a promotion at work because a man needed that job, raised a child alone and told to learn to type when I had to apply for welfare. I fought some battles and watched other women win some. I know Hillary and she knows me. I know what it took for her to push and push and never give up. So. I am glad it's Hillary and damn it,she does deserve it.

Is trump going to pull a perot

Remember when had to drop out because of something about his daughters wedding and death threats? What if Trump has to drop out to save his marriage? Because liberals.
