Me, which one to have a beer with? neither
Vote for? Trump
As George Thorogood said some years ago, I drink alone when those two are the only choices.

Clearly they did. "OK Mike, they are going to come after you with the sexual harassment stuff, the ex-republican stuff, stop and frisk, etc. it's going to be brutal and relentless. But much like lions, Democrats can only see movement. If you just freeze and stay very, very, still they wont see you and will wander off."

He is so dry, disconnected and machine like that I don't think he cares. The Turbo Tax comment made me cringe. He is everything the dems despise, supposedly, and to watch him get the nomination would be side splitting entertainment.

Black folks who watched the debate had to of just gone "Aw, hell no."
Soulless is an understatement, he's just plain creepy.

Yeah that Turbo Tax thing was rough. Trump can get away with comments like that with much of his base because they admire his wealth and power. But the Dems, yikes, that "I'm rich as F*ck and dont deal with the same little stuff you all deal with" line doesn't play well.

Personally, I don't admire Trump or his wealth. Many of the things he's doing, I back. The thing he's not doing that I do actually admire?
No useless war(s).

Two terms of Trump is a mere blip to the big picture. Some of the things he's doing are long term and I am good with that.

Considering he skipped other debates and this was going to be his grand debut he was grossly unprepared. For a person who relies heavily on data and analysis he clearly ignored whatever data was provided to him or it was all wrong because how did he not see these attacks coming? Lastly, his monotone retorts and canned responses seemed disingenuous and disconnected. He is having difficulty connecting with the masses. He should double down on the issues that helped him get reelected three times in nyc not apologize for them but what do I know? I am not a Billionaire or a person who will ever run for a political position.

You got me. But it was a major fail.

I didn't watch the debate, only saw clips this morning. Did anyone actually talk about issues and positions or did they just attack each other all night?

He's Trump's best kept secret... And as long as he keeps at it, will send Dem's running over to Sanders. Has spent over $400 million just on advertising, and employs untold numbers $2,500 per week to text, Instagram, FB good words about him. He's a loser, is amazing what it will take to get people to see it. But no worries, he'll drop out just before the convention, and by then the Dem Field will be in an ever higher mess. At least it's dwindled down from the 30+ some odd candidates who threw their hat in the ring! Lol... Definitely indication of the lack of focus or cohesion amongst the National Committee. They're still not sure how they lost in 2016, but think they got it all figured out now. Hahaha... Such an epic fail! And Barack Hussein coming out and allowing his ego to show once again, claiming his policies are responsible for the economy, what a joke. He too hasn't figured out it's better to remain quiet and appear a fool, than open his mouth and remove all doubt. Silly for such a supposedly smart guy, trying to exclaim all his handouts somehow or another is being returned with interest.

Doesn't matter, they're all losers... Each and every career politician! Let alone a multibillionaire narcissist who wants to tell you what you can eat, or where you can live, and how you just submit to the will of the Gov't because it has your best interest at heart and knows what's good for you.

Go Bloombucks!

For sure. That's why I was careful to say "much of his base" and not paint everyone with the same brush. There's nuance there. Heck, even my lefty liberal ass approves of some of his policies and actions. It's far from black and white.

We watched the first hour or so. It was 95% attacks, 5% issues. They were literally eating each other on stage. We got disgusted and just turned it off and caught up on the last two episodes of Gold Rush. Lol. My guilty pleasure.

I saw a Bloomberg TV ad where he says he isn't beholden to special interests.

He IS a special interest!

Fricassee.

“For a guy who is worth $55 billion and says he could run the world, he couldn't even run his own microphone last night," Joe Scarborough said.

CNN’s Van Jones declared the debate a “disaster” for Bloomberg and the liberal news organization published a roundup of opinions headlined “It's unanimous: a horrible night for Bloomberg.”

S.E. Cupp said the “love fest” is over, David Axelrod said Bloomberg had a “disastrous debut” and was “the big loser,”

The HuffPost wrote that Bloomberg got a “rude awakening,” Vox named him a "loser," Mother Jones said Bloomberg "got lit up" and CNBC said he "took a beating."

Mika Brzezinski said he was “hard to watch," Lawrence O’Donnell said the billionaire suffered "the worst blows" of the evening.

The fun part of all this will be once the Candidate is picked they all have to forget they said these things and attacked each other then go around telling us how great the candidate is and even more comical will be the running mate they pick. You know the one they bashed all year as being inexperienced or having skeletons in the closet or not having the ability to lead or beat DT.
