An Aggressive Donald Trump Uses Debate To Show Critics He Isn’t Leaving Race

ST. LOUIS, MO — Donald Trump survives.

Coming at a harrowing time for his campaign, the Republican nominee entered the presidential debate here Sunday night facing calls from members of his own party to step aside. But Trump used an aggressive performance against Hillary Clinton to signal to those critics in the Republican Party that he has no intention of going anywhere.

Following the debate, Trump allies expressed optimism in interviews with The Daily Caller that the candidate’s strong debate performance will be effective in fighting back against those critics.

How the moderators hijacked the second debate

Last night was a vivid, real-time illustration of how the media think of the American people: “We’re really interested in how you think! So, please, come in, sit down and . . . let the professionals ask the questions.”

Man of the people Anderson Cooper, son of Gloria Vanderbilt, and Martha Raddatz, who had President Obama as a guest at her wedding, must have panicked when ordinary Americans invited to what was billed as a Town Hall debate in St. Louis didn’t ask the questions they were supposed to ask.

      I shot a fly once with my old Remington Field Master Pump 22. Pumped three rounds into the fucker.

    I wondered if the fly was going to crawl across her eyeball like in the first episode of Westworld.

    Trump has no chance of winning the election. The elites in North America are too powerful. The forces that control the media, politics, education, corporations, and entertainment industry won’t allow it. That is why we end up with family dynasties in positions of leadership, like the Bushes, Clintons, and Trudeaus. This election was decided before it even began.

      My feelings exactly.The fear is that they won’t control Trump the way they controlled Obama – despite his babble-ideology – and the way they know they can control Hillary. She is already headed for a confrontation with Putin.

    • I will maintain hope nonetheless.

    I like how we got a question about Islamophobia, but not a question about Islamic Terrorism.

      From a media picked “undecided” voter too. That’s the part that made me laugh, in what world would you believe someone with that question was undecided?

        It’s all a ridiculous scam.

    It got to the point last night that it seemed like Trump was channeling John McEnroe when sparing with the moderators. All I kept hearing in my head was McEnroe yelling “C’mon ref! You can not be serious!?!”.
