In the upcoming presidential debate between Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump, we may be in for quite a show.
It should be interesting enough watching Trump, with his bombastic spontaneity and sharp wit, take on Clinton, who is as robotic as, well, a robot, and is by far the more wonky of the two.
But the real excitement come from other sources, such as Trump’s surprise guest and the rules that Hillary has to play by (for once).
It seems that Hillary didn’t like looking so much shorter than Donald Trump so she requested a stool to stand on but the request was denied by the Commission on Presidential Debates. Who knew there was such a thing?
The Commission will, however, allow Hillary a custom made podium to minimize the height difference. It’s surprising the commission didn’t give her a throne to sit on for the debate. It is interesting to note here that if Hillary has a coughing fit, the entire nation will get to witness it on prime time TV and there will be no commercial breaks. Awe! Too bad for Hillary!
According to the Drudge Report:
When she meets the Republican nominee Monday night at Hofstra University, Clinton will be stuck on stage if she is unsteady on her feet or lapses into a prolonged coughing fit.
Drudge didn’t name names, but quoted a ‘commission source’ saying: ‘There are no commercial breaks. Period.’
In addition, debate moderator Lester Holt, who anchors NBC Nightly News, will not have the power to instruct cameramen to ‘cut away’ from the stage if Clinton finds herself physically compromised during the 90-minute debate, the first of three showdowns before the November 8 election.
‘And microphone audio for either of the candidates is not to be manipulated,’ Drudge reported.
So Hillary still gets a free pass on the hard ball questions if she can manage to fake a coughing fit for 5 or 10 minutes until everyone gets tired of watching it and the ball gets thrown to Trump! Still, it will be entertaining to watch Hillary have a meltdown after all the years of hearing her insufferable lies and, admittedly, it will be gratifying to watch it happen on live television!
