    Actually, I think Trump won that one. He could have done better with Hillary but still held his own OK.

      No different than anything we've seen so far from either of them. Trump didn't follow the course he should have, 98 minutes and never mentioning Benghazi, the Clinton Foundation, the Clinton Global Initiative pay for play even her emails

      Yes, next time I think she will not be so lucky. I hope she knows it. The moderator kept bringing up Trumps sins, some more than once, but when did he Hillary's? There will not be a fair debate so Trump better wham her when he can.

    I did a lot of debating in schooling. Like on teams and solo in front judges and an audience. We were always given a question of what was right and at least some kind of facts to deal with. I liked IRAC and still do. (Issue Rule Application and Conclusion) From law to science to sociology to theology and philosophy.
    What they do for our entertainment pleasure and popularity competition on TV -- is just plain and simple not a debate.
    The only judges are folks who know nothing of debate but are folks who watch TV all the time, pushing ratings.
    Both participants won the debate. they were polished and "fact" based and persuasive. But let us be real and drop the notion of the "your fired" episode of 3 being a debate. Do not get me wrong, I like calling it a debate just like the big mass media folks - it sells. Just like the NFL, winning is as much spirit than skill.

    Over 40 interruptions while Trump was speaking and about 10 for Hillary.  The voters saw Candy Crowley in a suit last night - it's not too hard to see that when the audience cheered for Trump they were silenced but when it was for Hillary no one said anything.

      I'm sure those interruptions had nothing to do with the fact that Trump repeatedly spoke when it wasn't his turn to speak, wouldn't stop talking when told his time was up, and talked for two minutes straight w/o actually addressing the q asked.

    I would like to of seen Trump go after Hillary Clinton on her emails and "common sense" gun control when Chicago was brought up.

    But yeah, the moderators really need to stay out of it. It was clear that he favored Clinton instead of being neutral.

    By the way, did anyone notice the mysterious buldge on her back that oddly looks like a comms device? She might have gotten busted cheating....again.

    Follow my page, I'll make sure to return the favor (:

    Nobody so far is getting the point.  Phoenix is saying Mr. Holt was Hillary's mouthpiece.  That's the kind of thing that gets said when your candidate gets humiliated.

      Of course that has to be it.  Except , I dislike hillary more than aI support trump. Dolt asked trump about birth and taxes etc etc. Hillary was not asked about benghazi, emails or health or anything really. Lester dolt even rebutted trumps responses

      All true - softball pitches for Hillary.  I cant see hoe Trumps' taxes or his stance on where Barry O was born has any bearing on running the nation...

      YOU'RE THE EXPERT KC on things people say when their candidate gets humiliated (your candidate being Hillary) but you are dead wrong on this one http://www.breitbart.com/big-government … st-debate/

    Lester Holt has lost his credibility. "Fact checked" Trump 6 times on minutiae and on Trump's criticism of the Iraq invasion outright lied. Yet he NEVER "fact checked" Clinton, despite her lies on her private server holding classified data and at least one other issue.

    That he kept the debate on ancient history (birther issue) that made Trump look bad and didn't let the debate move on to the serious issues like the economy as another sign of bias.

    Therefore, he proved he was biased against Trump both in questions and handling.

      Not only biased but it seemed orchestrated and choreographed between holt and clinton. Holt cast the b/c as rascist and hillarys look or stamina as sexist, as breitbart points out. Holt set it up for hillary. Holt was actually making rebuttal 2 trump
