“THE BIG IDEA: The consensus that Donald Trump badly lost the first debate gelled overnight.”
The crowd did not go wild this time. The Trump consult with his 10 year-old son on computers and vocabulary, did not help. Maybe the Trump did not have “stamina”, the elixir that the Trump claims is the secret to success. The Trump could not even admit he had a cold, judged by his loud sniffles heard clearly on the radio. The Trump building is made of ice, and it melted under fire. The Trump could not keep up and by the end of the debate, he showed his “temperament” and his age. It was not a “winning temperament”. The Trump’s own mouth damned him. Intense flash performance was followed by slow crash descent.
