Bob Schieffer just went off on Trump, to paraphrase that it was disgraceful,

Like a Banana Republic, and asking what we have come to, to have a display like trotting out the women accusers and bring them to the audience.

Then he said it was like Wrestlemania.

3. Yes. When they came back after commercial, he was still shaking his head about it.

7. Found video and posted below. It's a bit out of sync, but has his raw comments.

8. I have no sympathy for Schieffer.

He, along with everyone else, helped enable this. They treated the Trump viewpoint--the Tea Party viewpoint--like it was valid, and it's led to this.

10. Agree with you and no sympathy for him.

But in that somewhat raw moment he gave an apt summation of Trump's behavior.

4. +1,000

I also agree with Carville - it was not a draw. Just wait for the fact checkers.

6. Thanks

Folks with his experience look at the entire package from Friday to tonight. Don the Con is a scumbag - locking up his opponent. He's sick.

9. Sick and scary. It is scary that so many in this country would support this Mussolini wannabe.

Actually that explains some of his accusations about Hillary, as if she had control of all laws enacted or not.

He views everything through the prism of a tyrant.

13. Those idiot Trumpanzees are all authoritarians

They also have tyrannical tendencies, mostly in the home, where they can, and often do, wield absolute power over their families, terrorizing them in the process.
Authoritarians also tend to trust people who are inherently untrustworthy as far as normal people with a functioning conscience are concerned.

22. Funny thing about that.

When they idiotically claimed President Obama was being a tyrant, they didn't find tyranny so very appealing. What's up with that, I wonder.

21. "On both sides Bob?" "On both sides?"

 

smh at the pathetic attempts at false equivalency. It's like it's hard wired into these media clowns. To Scheifer's credit he said no, but you could tell he almost instinctively was going to say yes,both sides. lol

24. False equivalency - exactly so and it was a transparent attempt.

He almost went along with them, but then didn't.

I do hope this is the death throes of the republicans as a major party.

12. Exactly. Threatening to jail a political opponent - truly sickening.

And so much bile before that, toward anyone different or with a different point of view.

15. After deep thought and reflection, I have come to a profound conclusion.

Deplorable and irredeemable are exactly the right words.

18. Thanks Rose. That was what Schieffer said. Powerful picture of Trump as the buffoonish

tyrant he is in his own little empire and what he wishes to be over all the U.S.

It was completely unhinged. How did they not notice?
