Donald Trump vs. Hillary Clinton: The tale of the tape

  1. Trump is on the media blitz this morning complaining that the moderator didn’t ask Clinton tough questions, DAH!, you were cutting the moderator off Mr.Trump, and maybe if you didn’t ramble like an old coot and cut the moderator off, maybe Mr. Holt probably could have gotten to your unasked questions, he said he had more questions, but when someone is rambling diatribes all the time, it’s hard for a moderator to get to the questions you complained were never asked, your starting to sound like a ‘Wienie Whiner’ Mr. Trump.

    • Trump has an ‘ERATIC’ demeanor, not good if your pushing buttons. Hillary had the more controlled demeanor, and demeanor and character are some of the building blocks of a good leader, especially if your apply for a job that you may be required you to have to push buttons.
