What the fuck is Trump even talking about? I mean, all politicians go braindead when the words "cyber" are mentioned. Hillary's comments were... inadequate for various reasons. What is "retaliation" exactly? Military? Purely cyber? Etc. etc. Very vague and generic answer.
But Trump... I don't even... what the fuck was he saying?

Very content with how it turned out. Maybe she could have gone after a few more things, been less stilted about the birther stuff, but really Trump sunk himself enough that she didn't really need to.
But Trump said his temperament was good.

One of the big reasons to move to Mexico is because they have free trade agreements with more countries than the United States, and another is lower wages. Unless you want to subsidize exports, or enact economic sanctions or something, you can't fix the first without more free trade agreements, and you can't fix the second without lowering wages.
With all the low-hanging fruit to pummel Trump today, I think Clinton did fine. I think her strategy of sit back and watch Trump show off his "Temperment" was a fine strategy. Clinton said enough to get under Trump's skin, and then let Trump do the rest of the talking.
Its really hard to say "Hillary missed an opportunity" when Trump forgot to mention "Basket of Deplorables". Trump could have easily
evened the odds on the "race relations" issue, but he seems to have forgotten Clinton's newest mistake.
Then the email thingy... Hillary apologized and then the debate went on without a hitch. This was clearly Hillary's weakest point in the entire debate and Trump did jack diddly to take advantage of it.
