Who Won The First Debate?

From the Huffington Post:

“Had the debate been a prize fight, it would have been stopped in the third round. Donald Trump turned in the worst ― and I mean worst ― debate performance in modern times. It was so bad that in a normal year, it would disqualify him from getting anywhere near the White House.  But this is 2016, a year so weird, unsettled and unsettling, that even the spectacle of an unprepared and almost incoherent Trump, reeling from blow after blow from Democrat Hillary Clinton, may not be enough to slow him down.”

That's about it.  Trump kept spewing out lie after lie, and the Trumpanzees didn't care or didn't notice.

Lester Holt had to keep fact-checking Trump, repeating over and over that being audited by the IRS would NOT prevent him from releasing his tax returns; and Trump kept insisting that he can't release his tax returns until the IRS is through with their audit.  WTF is he hiding?  A Russian Mob connection?  The fact that his net worth is closer to $300 million than the $20 billion he keeps implying?

He was also fact-checked again and again over his claim that he was against the Iraq War from the beginning.

And let's not forget:

Trump was funny to watch. He buried himself. It was more than Clinton could hope for.
Trump said his mic wasn't working, yet, we could hear every sniffle. Trump is blaming the partisan moderator Lester Holt. Maybe Trump will get his chance when Chris Wallace moderates. I've met some guys with overblown egos, but Trump takes the prize. He's nothing but a spoiled brat. It's clear what a nightmare it would be to have a president Trump and that's scary. More scary is he'll probably get over 50 million votes.

Luke: Clinton definitely wiped up the floor with Trump. His sniffling, his constant interrupting like he was 5 years old -- I just hope this will make a difference in the polls. But I've lost count of how many times in the last few months that there's been a new revelation about Trump, or a new outburst from him, and I've thought "All right! Trump is toast! Game Over!" And this keeps not happening.

Even if he loses, this is a serious indictment of American voters.
