It’s 3am. Do you know where your nominee is?
If your nominee is Hillary Clinton, she was probably sleeping.
Of course, she was probably sleeping, while hanging from some musky rafter by her feet – but sleeping.
If your nominee is Donald Trump, he was doing what he always does – sitting up and tweeting ridiculous, reality-impaired things.

Notice he starts with Drudge?
I’m not sure if the others are online polls, but Drudge allows for multiple votes, and the trolls usually begin flooding the poll before the debate is even over.
For those who are not part of a cult (MOVEMENT), we watched the debate last night with clear eyes. Trump actually began surprisingly well.
Then whatever animal tranquilizer he’d been hit with began to wear off.
As his answers became more incoherent, he let Clinton off the hook in places where he could have pressed in.
He did bring up the emails, which was good, but he failed in so many other ways.
For starters, he made no cogent case for the Supreme Court, which is, to be honest, the only reason some are considering voting for him.
His use of the word “hombres” to describe the bad immigrants that need to go, is a flashback to his announcement speech, when he said Mexicans were rapists and murderers.
When he refused to say he would accept the outcome of the election if she won, however, was possibly the final nail. It is a rejection of our electoral process and it makes him look petty and spoiled.
His defenders have already cited Al Gore and the recount situation of the 2000 election. What they neglect to mention is that Gore’s whining didn’t start until after the election, when the issue of Florida’s “hanging chads” was made known.
Trump is stirring up his base and threatening a very nasty national scene for November 9.
