If Trump has any sense at all, he’ll mop up the floor with her. Everything she says has a quick easy rejoinder that blows it out of the water.
Clinton: I’m the one you want to take that early morning phone call about that crisis overseas.
Trump: Yeah, because that just worked out so well when you actually did take that call. (Stage whisper) Libya, Benghazi, Syria, Iraq, ISIS, Afghanistan, Russia, Crimea, Ukraine, North Korean nukes, Iran nukes, and so on…
Clinton: but, but, but, most of that was Obama…
Trump (interrupting): Yes, thank you for making my case for me. Obama’s foreign policy is really the Obama-Clinton foreign policy. We’re weaker, less secure, and the world is a much more dangerous place since you and your boss have come in and mucked up everything everywhere.
Clinton: The economy has been improving for the entire time Obama has been in office. I’ll continue that good work. I’ll put people back to work(1).
Trump: The economy has been for crap for the entirety of Obama’s two terms in office. As someone else once said, Obama should be known as the “Food Stamps President.” I ought to know, I’ve taken more people off Food Stamps in my businesses than the entire Western World … combined(2).
And so forth. Everything she ever could possibly say has an, “Aw come on! You’ve got to be kidding me! What about [fill in scathing remark here]” rejoinder.
(1) In order for Hillary to make her case, she has to — no choice! — argue against Obama, whose economic record, in the very best of spin, is … bad. So many more people dependent on government services than before he took office; so many more people on Food Stamps; so many people out of the work force, and unlikely ever to return to it, and so forth. Oh, yeah — the U-6.
(2) It’s true, but it’d be true if Trump’s business had removed just one person from the Food Stamp rolls. The Western World in the past eight years has enrolled more people in government dependency programs in the past eight years than in the entirety of history combined.
