[3rd Presidential Debate]: Election Dragon Hungers: With A Vengeance (9pm EST)

edited October 2016 in Debate and/or Discourse
SiG's last OP is kind of specific to that event, so I guess we're making this one from whole cloth to start.

The final debate will be held at the University of Nevada in Las Vegas. It is being run by Fox News, will mirror the first debate, and is being hosted by Chris Wallace.

The topics will include 6 segments 15 minutes long apiece on;
- Debt and entitlements
- Immigration
- The Economy
- The Supreme Court
- Foreign Hot Spots
- Fitness to be President

Trump has been Reality TV'ing it up with a not-so-secret list of 'surprise guests'.

Hang on folks, it's probably going to be a bumpy ride.

COME CHAT WITH US IN DISCORD: https://discord.gg/kVcAutP

Discord is a free chat/voice client. SiG will be moderating the chat but I will not be voice chatting tonight most likely. Come to the chat room for real time discussion and dank memes.

IN THIS THREAD

Please don't post pure reactions like "wow" or "Did he really say that" and such without providing context for your remark. Reaction posts like that are more fitting for the chat room. The thread will already be moving fast.

Likewise no tweet dumps unless you have some actual commentary to share.

Many different issues will come up during the debate, obviously, if you find yourself getting into the weeds of a policy discussion like the merits of charter schools please take it to PM or start a thread.

GROUND RULES STILL APPLY

No image macros.
No satire links.
Don't be a dick.

First they came for the Muslims, and we said NOT TODAY, MOTHERFUCKER!

    A few days ago we had a little party, and while the remains of the booze that we bought for that is like 1/3 of a bottle of captain morgan...

    we found a mostly full liter of vodka while getting booze out so.

    I think I'm ready.

    Crowd behind MSNBC is hella loud.

    Reid is on talking about senate flips while wearing shades. Bet he feels so cool.

    So the murderer's row (which might be unfair to an actual row of murderers) Trump has assembled includes Obama's Hamas supporting half-brother, Sarah Palin, noted fraud James O'Keefe and a supposed illegitimate child of Bill Clinton

    so topic 5 is benghazi and 6 is emails
    4 can be about how Clinton's going to abolish the 2nd amendment, 2 and 3 about how the U.S.A is terrible and our leaders are the worst, and then i'm not sure about 1

    Shameful pursuits and utterly stupid opinions

    Debate predictions:
    Clinton and Trump will perform within their nominal performance margins. Trump, being incapable of learning or introspection will be in full attack mode for most it and Clinton will smile through. It's a Las Vegas Fox News debate thing so I'm kind of expecting the audience to be extra annoying.

    Post debate analysis from the media will be something like:
    "Hillary did not have a good answer for the e-mail question which continues to dog her. Overall she seemed almost too well prepared, her answers didn't sound as natural and inspiring as I think they should. She also didn't reach out with her mind and, with sheer force of will, collapse her opponent into a singularity. Trump on the other hand did well, throughout the debate he maintained an upright posture and rhythmically moved air in and out of his chest cavity. I'm going to call this one a draw."

    Seal on

    It could be true...hypothetically they could be saving them for a time when Trumps numbers start to bounce back pre/post debate or when something else happens. If Trump is in freefall it could make more sense to hold off until the final week or two.

    Crap that's a Know Nothing nativist from New York.

    I was wondering if anyone would point that out.

    I actively encourage people to watch that scene in Gangs of New York where they're at the docks mocking the Irish coming off the boats.

    Yeah this debate should be asking the serious important questions.

    Why is pineapple the best pizza topping.

    The Parade of Guests is designed to feed the base the big line: that there is a world of secret truths being hidden by the mainstream media. Only Trump Brand News will tell you about Bill's secret son and Vince Foster and Benghazi and the NWO and secret plans to open the borders to 600 million immigrants.

    I love this meme and used it within the last five minutes, but I need to set the record straight.

    Arby's french fries are hands down the best in the fast food business. No contest. Their sandwiches range from colon breaking to quite tasty depending on the quality of your local franchise, but those fries.

    Damn good.

    This is a beverage that has a draught variant called Extra Cold.

    Yes, yes you do.
