BOTH SIDES NOW: AUGUST 21st, 2016

Charles Cooke and Gara Lamarche largely agree that Trump’s new newfound “regrets” could help him “IF he kept it up…but he can’t” says Charles, who as a National Review editor adds that “it’s disgraceful” for Trump to hire a Breitbart alt-right person to run his campaign. Gara chides both Dems and R’s for using psychological terms like “narcissistic sociopath” (re Trump) and “lacks the stability and stamina” (re Clinton) under the so-called “Goldwater Rule” of 1964, although the Host points out that, since truth is a defense to Libel, one characterization is far more accurate.

Ron Reagan & Mary Matalin look at the first Clinton-Trump Debate through the lens of their respective experiences with Reagan 40 and Bushs 41+43. Our collective judgment is that while Trump will beat very low “expectations” (as was true of Ron’s father in 1980), Clinton’s superior knowledge and experience will enable her to win the debate in the eyes of not the media but actual voters...

Schrum & Frum discuss who gained and learned more from the NBC “Commander-in-Chief” Forum (not counting that the “gotcha journalist” Lauer lost).  They agree that Trump probably won the night but, according to Bob, “not the next day when land-mines he laid blew up in his face” [Putin, CIA briefing, ‘take Iraq’s oil...
