Episode: BOTH SIDES NOW: OCTOBER 1st, 2016

Both Sides Now Logo

Shrum & Christie concur post-first debate that, in Bob’s phrase, “Hillary killed him and he committed suicide.” The question now is whether he can stop talking disparagingly about womens’ weight & looks  (‘fat chance’). Ron thinks it amazing that, unlike Kennedy, Reagan, Obama, Clintons, Trump thought he could just wing it and not prepare. Wrong!

Ron also doubts that Trump will raise Bill’s infidelties at next debate because of his own history as a serial adulterer and how it elevates Hillary to appear the victim. But with “Mr. 3am Tweeter”, ya never know.

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...

Both Sides Now > BOTH SIDES NOW: AUGUST 13th, 2016

Is Trump in a summer slump or death spiral? RShrum & RChristie agree that it’s slipping away because he’s both a boor and a bore — everything is insults + me/me/me. The panelists clash over whose eco plan is better — Ron says Bush43’s trickle down superior while Bob likes Hillary’s “middle-out” version...
