Neither did very well, but Clinton stayed presidential as usual. Trump made the "cardinal sin" of being too hostile, too political, and just not funny.

I don't know if the guy has ever been to one of these, knew anything about it, or just what was wrong with him. This seems to go back to being ill-informed, ill-advised and just plan too arrogant. Just because he is rich, he doesn't get to step on 75 years of history.

He definitely has been to many of those dinners. At least, he said he had been going to them since he was a young man, attending with his father. I thought he did okay up through the joke about Melania. Much like the last debate, though, he stayed composed for the first 40% and then couldn't resist sinking back into his natural self.

America was never great, historical tradition is overrated.

You really are becoming the most jaded person on the site. Sorry that the revolution is working out so poorly for you.

Well, that was (and is) a big problem for him. He just can't keep it all together for more than 30 or 40 min. And, yea, the joke about Melania was good.

I'm just countering the site's Left version of Trump.
