Clinton and Trump open the debate positively by shaking hands. Then, the station themselves behind their podiums at Hofstra University on New York’s Long Island. Former President Bill Clinton and Melania Trump also greet each other before going to their assigned seats.
[VIDEO]: Trump brags that he kows how to win and Hillary don’t. Whooh what a temper!
Presidential Debate Temperaments Exposed
Trump narrates how outrageous Hillary Clinton was talking to someone whom he does not know. He also praises himself for having much better temperament than her. Clinton then narrates how Trump commented about a foreign navigational vehicle coming into the American waters. Take them off he said. That can start another war.
Temperaments all throughout
Trump’s intense manner of speaking did not help him in this round. Clinton’s smiles, body language and “whoos” could just make audience applaud her.
The drawing aura of Hillary Clinton makes the audience respond by applauding her every brilliant defence. In many instances she really makes Donald Trump look like a neophyte smart ass.
Trump Convinces Self that He did better than Expected
Trump could be right that he did better than expected considering that Hillary Clinton makes her living doing public speaking. However, as a presidential aspirant, he should have prepared himself by researching what he has to do as president. Often, he’s just acting aggressively when caught off guard.
Iranian Ship to be “shot out of the water” by Trump (Actual words)
Hillary Clinton highlights that Trump’s “shot out of the water” comment to the Iranian ship entering territorial waters of the US can actually start a war. Therefore he is not fit to be commander-in-chief. Point well taken!
Trump tries to slam Clinton so hard but every time he does, she shines. Perhaps mentioning her staying off the campaign trail due to no big deal sickness is a mistake. Clinton’s response shows that she knows the country’s problems even with eyes closed.
Prepares for the Presidency
“I think Donald just criticized me for preparing for this debate,” she said. “And yes, I did. And you know what else I prepared for? I prepared to be President. And that is a good thing.”
The line drew a round of applause from an audience that had been instructed to remain quiet.
[VIDEO]: Hillary Clinton knows the job and how to deal with it.
Trump: Hillary does not have the look to be president
Trump diverts his comment to stamina instead of look. It did not matter to Hillary. She has all the brilliant answers that put Trump down. The kind of person who obviously, knows what she’s doing.
Trump: Stamina for Travels
Trump insisted on stamina instead of looks. To be president of this country one needs tremendous stamina; he says. Stamina for negotiating with Japan, Saudi Arabi. With all the money they paid to defend them, stamina is essential. He believes that Hillary Clinton just does not have the stamina to do those.
Hillary: did not mind stamina instead of looks
As soon as Trump starts to travel to 112 countries, negotiate peace deals, cease-fires or even dissidents. Opening new opportunities or testifying for 11 hours – he can talk to me about stamina!
Credit to Hillary Clinton as the very first woman nominated as their candidate for president by a major party. She is smart and experienced. Definitely not a bad egg!

It was observed that Vice Presidet Jejomar Binay did not answer Yes or No quickly during the Quick Answer portion of the last Presidential Debate held in Dagupan, Pangasinan recently. If you analyze the question, most of the queries thrown to him were not answerable by Yes or No – given that he is a human rights lawyer. He did answered Yes to PGMA’s plight for humanitarian reasons. Let’s analyse a few:
Will you put Mayor Duterte in prison? – For what? Is he found guilty beyond reasonable doubt?
Will you release Ampatuan? – He needs fair tial – in fact, he’s not yet summoned and already serving a jail term.
Will you impeach Conchita Carpio Morales? – Will exercise being a unifying President (The Surpreme Court Justice’s cases are political in nature)
Will you release President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo from prison? Absolutely, Yes – PGMA deserves to regain her freedom.
Will you allow Australian mining? It will depend on the kind of process presented. If responsible mining, then yes.
ABS-CBN should have put a lot of thoughts in structuring the questions – so that they can be answered with Yes or No by a principled man – who would think a hundred times before giving his thoughts for sensitive issues. Not just for the sake of answering quickly and pleasing the audience for entertainment sake. After all, that was a Presidential debate. He truly has a heart!
