(Allendbwest.com) -- Last night, GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump took on Hillary Clinton, Martha Raddatz and Anderson Cooper. And, yes, he wiped the floor with them all.
Thanks to the events of the preceding 48 hours and the frenzy of the media and some very spineless GOP politicians, last night’s debate was set up to be a doozy. And just when it appeared it was to be Armageddon, Donald Trump made a masterful stroke. Hours before the debate, he held a press conference with four women who’ve been embroiled in sexual assault allegations and demonization by Bill and Hillary Clinton. That’s the boldness missing from the GOP. What Donald Trump did early on was to display his contrition, but also draw the distinction between private words and public actions — to include sexually deviant behavior in our Oval Office. He brought an end to that discussion very quickly and caused serious damage to Hillary Clinton — even my oldest daughter Aubrey did not know about the “cigar” episode.
From that moment on, Hillary Clinton was on defense, rightfully so; she was taken off her game as she came into this debate with a smug confidence evident in her demeanor. As for the moderators, they realized they were losing and did everything they could to assist Hillary Clinton.
