As millions of the American people tuned in this last Monday evening for the first Presidential Debate between the Democrat Candidate, Hillary Clinton and the Republican Candidate, Donald J Trump, we all held our breath wondering what would happen.
Would Hillary "short circuit" and/or lie endlessly, or would Trump lose his composure and go after Hillary with guns blazing?
As a staunch Trump supporter, I have to say that I was disappointed that Hillary didn't experience one of her now famous "episodes", but she didn't let me down on her inability, to tell the truth. I gagged every time she brought up the supposed Fact Checkers. This from a woman who lies about EVERYTHING??? Then when she made the snarky comment about Trump "living in his own world", I'm glad I didn't have anything in my mouth at the time because I probably would have choked. This said by a woman who has absolutely NO grip on reality.
Now, on to Trump's performance. First of all, I think he did a good job. Not a great job, but good for his first time with a platform such as that one. I do have to say that he started out strong. He was clear and spoke with authority when it came to the economy, taxes, and how best to create jobs by taking the burden off the true job makers...the American businessman.
However, as the debate went on Trump seemed to fall back on his heels. He was given plenty of opportunities to after Hillary on issues that she cannot defend. Instead of worrying about a fallen beauty queen and other stupid topics....just stick to the script!! Trump needs to learn how to pivot the conversation around to things important to the American people: Jobs, Illegal Immigration, National Security, Revoking Obamacare, and Terrorism.
Hillary is going to try and use the "Woman Card" against Trump should he go after her many scandals. I believe that Trump can stop her in her tracks by just saying this first.
"Madam Secretary, out of respect for the position you held and your desire to be President of the United States, I will not treat you any differently than I would a man." Then go after her. By doing it that way, I firmly believe those who would want to cry sexism would be hard pressed to complain that he didn't show her the respect they say she deserves as a woman.
Donald Trump has a difficult battle ahead for him, so he needs to be prepared for any and all crap that Hillary and the Liberal Media will throw at him. He needs to stop with all the counter-punching and just turn things around on her. Don't give Hillary the opportunity to land a single blow. Trump needs to stay light on his feet, don't give Hillary a still target. Every time she tries to bring up something negative about Trump, he needs to weave and bob like a nimble boxer and set her up for a clean punch with the truth of her corruption.
Now, I'm not a professional, but I know common sense. Trump needs to use his common sense against Hillary and stop playing by her rules. He needs to watch the debate, see where he went wrong and where he was strong. Then he needs to go to the next debate ready to take her on, and NOT let her control the narrative.
Now we wait for round 2
