It’s never too early in the day for a Friday palate cleanser. Here’s Bad Lip Reading’s imagining of a Quiz Show of the Damned, in which the fate of the free world depends upon two terrible contestants both losing — and yet one must win. It’s like a game of “Jeopardy” where three versions of Wolf Blitzer play each other and the one who loses the least amount of money gets control of America’s nuclear arsenal.
Here’s how the debate prep is going for Sunday’s must-win townhall event, by the way:
Only days before Donald Trump must face Hillary Clinton in a town-hall style presidential debate, the GOP nominee added just such an event in New Hampshire. It was seemingly a concession to anxious allies and advisers hoping he might hone his skills in what can be a difficult format even for the most dexterous of politicians.
Trump had other plans. “They were saying this is practice for Sunday,” he told the crowd in speech before the so-called town-hall. “This isn’t practice. This has nothing to do with Sunday.”…
On Thursday night, Howie Carr, a conservative radio host and Trump booster, played the role of moderator, and the crowd was hand-picked by his campaign. The audience didn’t even ask Trump their questions. Carr did so on their behalf. Before the event, Carr had said Trump would take 20 questions. He stayed for about a dozen…
“I said forget debate prep. I mean, give me a break,” Trump said at one point. “Do you really think that Hillary Clinton is debate-prepping for three or four days. Hillary Clinton is resting, okay?”
Team Clinton is using the debates as opportunities to set traps for Trump and Pence by goading them into saying things that’ll be inserted into pre-packaged post-debate attack lines. Is Trump preparing to spot the traps, at least?
