Well, the first presidential debate didn’t go exactly as Donald Trump planned, even though he (and plenty of “voters” from Russia) claimed otherwise. No matter what you think about Hillary Clinton’s policies, she played Trump perfectly at the Hofstra University debate.
Donald Trump’s achilles heel is the fact that he refuses to ever admit he was wrong about anything. And he doesn’t just change the subject or evade the question the way most politicians do, he doubles and triples-down, insisting he was right about everything from calling Rosie O’Donnell a “fat pig,” to humiliating a young Miss Universe.
The days after the first debate have been even more interesting than the debate itself (which was fascinating), mainly because The Donald continues his “triumphant” rampage. He even says he’s picking up more of the female vote because of the nasty things he didn’t say at the debate.
