It's only barely getting national news attention because of the heat of the presidential battle. But the Bridgegate trial is going on. And it now seems very clear - what was probably obviously all along - that Christie knew all about the traffic james in Fort Lee were engineered as payback. He knew and he was in on it. All from testimony in federal court.
Remember, Christie was 'exonerated' of any involvement by a tax payer funded 'investigation' by Christie's own attorney in matter.
Trump didn't have a terrible night last night. For anyone who's watched him closely for a year and a half he was simply himself. Cocky, angry, lashing out as an opponent increasingly dominated and embarrassed him. This wasn't a bad showing. It was him. But it's a good moment for all of those who constantly complain about Hillary being a terrible candidate, making this or that mistake, screwing this or that up, her performance last night was pitch perfect.
Yes, he did badly. But she brought it at least as much as he blew it.
Wounded and angry, this morning on Fox Trump went after that Miss Universe pageant winner who Hillary brought up in the debate. Trump said she was "the worst" and "gained a massive amount of weight and it was a real problem."
As I wrote earlier, I didn't think Donald Trump would lose his cool this quickly or that Hillary Clinton would be able to bait him that effortlessly. But it turned into such a mess that there were almost countless little comments from Trump, each one of which was in its own way quite ridiculous or damning or both. Many will likely come up again after people get a good night's sleep and start picking out these almost countless nuggets.
One of the more bizarre Peak Trump Moments (PTM) tonight was this stream of consciousness answer when Trump seemed to argue that even though he never publicly said anything negative about the Iraq War until almost three years later when it was deeply unpopular, he had private conversations on the subject with the highly credible Sean Hannity. And all you have to do is call Hannity who will totally back him up.
