A Tumultuous Political Weekend For Hillary Clinton And Donald Trump

After a tumultuous political weekend, both @hillaryclinton and @realdonaldtrump were visibly uneasy during last night’s hostile debate.

The 90-minute town hall-style event was spectacle of character attacks, tawdry allegations, and #DonaldTrump’s startling accusation that his opponent has “tremendous hate in her heart.” As they stepped onstage, the 2 candidates, even refused to shake hands. Among the key takeaways: #HillaryClinton, who stuck to a safe script, endured @realdonaldtrump’s attack. When he claimed that she had smeared women who accused Bill Clinton of assault, she took a line from @michelleobama: “When they go low, you go high.” @realdonaldtrump apologized for his remarks in 2005 that he could grope women because he was “a star.” But he also minimized them as “locker-room talk.” While he steadied himself as the night went on, he never showed a side of himself that might surprise voters and transform their negative views of him.
