Episode: BOTH SIDES NOW: SEPTEMBER 10th, 2016

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.’] Because Trump lies so regularly he’s almost “unfactcheckable”, Frum argues that she instead should focus on why DJT’s “just too dangerous to trust with America’s finances and military.” Shrum concurs, explaining why it’s foolish to try to bat down each falsehood and how instead she should reach out to the audience of persuadable swing Republicans why he’s simply unfit for the job.

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...
