The Presidential Debate as Explained by Pop Culture

47 minutes ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

All eyes were on Long Island.  On Monday night, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton gathered for the first of what will eventually be a series of four debates leading up to the presidential election in November. It was the first time the two would square off against only each other—and it all aired live, in person, on national television. Naturally, it was a can't-miss evening.  But we're not here to discuss their answers about cyber attacks or ruminate over law and order. We're here to help our audience out with a little thing we call understanding this spider's web of an election season. Nothing about the 2016 race has been routine, and there are so many facts and figures »

The View from Abroad: Hillary Clinton Beats Donald Trump in First Presidential Debate, Many International Media Outlets Say

1 hour ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Hillary Clinton 1: Donald Trump 0. That’s the verdict of many major media outlets outside the U.S. after Monday night’s presidential debate, with international stock markets making early gains on the back of the result.

“Clinton gets under Trump’s skin in first presidential debate,” Britain’s Financial Times said Tuesday morning, adding that the duel “saw a disciplined Mrs. Clinton confront an often rambling Mr. Trump.” On the newspaper’s website, commentator Edward Luce’s assessment of the matchup was headlined: “Trump fails to clear a low-debate bar.”

“Who won the first debate?” the BBC asked. “It was a battle between the lawyer and the salesman, and for the most part the lawyer came out on top,” Anthony Lurcher, the BBC’s North American reporter, wrote. 

In France, Le Monde declared: “Hillary Clinton dominates the first debate.” The paper said that Trump “was increasingly out of his depth when he spoke, wasting »

The Presidential Debate ‘Late Night’ Helped Prove That Seth Meyers is the Host Network TV Needs

1 hour ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

One of the redeeming elements of the 2016 election coverage media hellscape has been watching Seth Meyers and the “Late Night” writing team navigate the fine balance of rational reasoning and rational indignation that seems to have eluded most shows which air more than once a week.

Last Monday marked the beginning of the show’s fourth season, which opened with their strongest statement yet, an installment of their segment “A Closer Look” focusing on Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s history of birtherism. Using a weekend’s worth of prep and six years’ worth of evidence, the 10-minute clip is indicative of the concise morsels of fact-checking that the show has been serving up on a near-nightly basis, through the primaries and up through last evening’s live show.

The Presidential Debate: In Conversation, Donald Trump’s Strategy Falls Apart

4 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Monday night’s presidential debate seemed to boil down to just talking. Not what the politicians were talking about, though that is of course important; but instead how Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton conducted a conversation — with each other, with their moderator Lester Holt, and with the viewing public.

In terms of conversational skills, last night’s debate did not reflect well on Donald Trump. Vox noted that Clinton was interrupted 70 times during the debate; 51 of those times were from Trump. By contrast, Clinton interrupted Trump just 17 times. Clinton spoke slowly and carefully — so carefully that at times she was almost stilted. Trump seemed to leave off the idea of restraint just a few minutes into the debate, opting instead for a ranting bluster that quickly turned into hectoring his opponent. Both Clinton and Trump were prone to continue to talk through the other candidate’s interruptions, but while Clinton was oriented outwards, making »

Stephen Colbert: Donald Trump Looked Un-Prepared At Debate, Hillary Clinton Looked “Like Preparation H”

5 hours ago | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Stephen Colbert began tonight’s live Late Show watching the Donald Trump vs. Hillary Clinton debate with the ghost of Abraham Lincoln.  Lincoln confessed he called his opponent Stephen Douglas’s mother a “short-legged  a donkey fondler” in the Great Debate of ’58. Lincoln is mortified to learn the country’s first black Potus is a Democrat, and warns Colbert not to head to the theater for his show because “it’s a trap,” marking Late Show’s first assassination… »

Clinton Buries Health Issue; Trump Like Punch Drunk Fighter in First Debate

5 hours ago | TheImproper.com | See recent TheImproper.com news »

Hillary Clinton laid to rest right-wing rumor mongering about her health with a strong performance in the first presidential debate. Donald Trump came across like a punch-drunk fighter, who was, at times, belligerent, incoherent and confused. Going into the debate, Republican pundits repeatedly said Trump had only one mission to accomplish. He needed to look “Presidential.” He was anything but. ...Read MoreClinton Buries Health Issue; Trump Like Punch Drunk Fighter in First Debate was first posted on September 27, 2016 at 1:20 am.

Donald Trump Blames Debate Performance on ‘Defective’ Microphone

5 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Of all the explanations for Donald Trump’s consensus debate loss on Monday night, no one thought to blame his microphone. Well, no one beside Donald Trump. During a post-debate interview in the spin room following the Gop nominee’s first presidential showdown with Democratic rival Hillary Clinton, Trump said, “They also had — they gave me a defective mic,” according to CBS News reporter Sopan Deb. !!!! In the spin room, Trump told reporters that he had a defective mic: "I wonder. Was that on purpose? Was that on purpose?" pic.twitter.com/thKq6Sj1sF — Sopan Deb (@SopanDeb) September 27, 2016 His »

7 Debate Gaffes Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton Will Regret

6 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump will have some regrets after their first presidential debate. But Clinton’s regrets mostly involve things she may wish others did differently — and Trump’s were of his own making. Trump made at least two very obvious factual errors. Clinton has also been second-guessed by fact-checkers — but you didn’t need to do much fact-checking to know Trump was very wrong when he said Clinton has been fighting Isis her entire adult life. Because Isis hasn’t existed for her entire adult life. Also Read: Hillary Clinton Wins First Presidential Debate, According to Twitter »

First Presidential Debate Breaks Twitter Record

6 hours ago | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Twitter is already claiming victory in Monday night's first presidential debate.  The social networking platform has yet to release official numbers for the showdown between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton but confirms that it was the most-tweeted debate ever.  During the 2012 presidential election between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, Twitter was still a private company. At the time, the Denver debate between Obama and Romney became the most-tweeted political event in Twitter history with 10.3 million tweets during the 90-minute broadcast. { "nid": 932732, "type": "news", "title": "Presidential Debate: Viewers Call Out Trump's

'Where Art Thou,' Lester Holt? Presidential Debate Moderator's Conspicuous Silence Is Met with Mixed Reviews

6 hours ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Monday night's presidential debate left many Americans most conflicted not about whether Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton prevailed, but about the effectiveness of moderator Lester Holt, who was relatively silent throughout the political face-off. Although Holt interrupted the candidates at times to fact-check their statements and remind them of their time limits, he also allowed their heated discussions of policy and values to go largely unchaperoned. While some debate viewers took to social media to praise the NBC anchor for staying out of the spotlight, others wondered why he abstained from cutting off Clinton and Trump more often. And those viewers vented through memes. »

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump's Best Zingers from the Presidential Debate

6 hours ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

It was the showdown billed as the most important moment of the 2016 presidential campaign so far. At long last, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump squared off on the debate stage Monday night, and for an hour and a half the duo frostily exchanged barbs as the world watched. Although the pair started off with unexpected restraint, it was Clinton who fired the opening salvo, labeling her opponent's economic plan "Trumped-up, trickle-down economics." Later, as the Republican candidate defended his economic plan, the gloves came off in an exchange that seemed to encapsulate the tension between them throughout the campaign. It »

Critic's Notebook: Hillary Clinton Makes Donald Trump Sweat — Literally and Figuratively — at First Debate

6 hours ago | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The bar was extremely low for Donald Trump heading into his first presidential debate with Hillary Clinton. The pundits had essentially declared that if he simply refrained from, say, shouting out "Sieg Heil!" during the 90 minutes, he would appear suitably presidential. The bar, it seems, wasn't lowered enough. During the event moderated by NBC's Lester Holt, Trump was his usual condescending and obnoxious self. Not so long ago, Al Gore was raked over the coals for deeply sighing during one of his debates with George W. Bush. This evening, Trump constantly grimaced, scowled, shook his head, and shouted out

Lester Holt Stays Cool in Presidential Debate Amid Mixed Reviews

7 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

NBC Nightly News” anchor Lester Holt kept his steely calm during his 90 minutes in the spotlight as moderator of Monday’s first presidential debate face-off between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.

Holt kept control of the session despite periodic testy flare-ups between the candidates. At one point, Trump, the Republican nominee, talked over one of Holt’s questions as he went on a tangent about Clinton’s policy proposals and the Isis terror organization. But Holt barreled through and kept the debate on pace and held the candidates to their two-minute response time limits.

Going into the debate there was much discussion about the role of the moderator as a fact-checker of the candidates’ statements. The perception about that obligation was heightened over the weekend when the New York Times, Los Angeles Times and other newspapers published reports detailing numerous misstatements of fact and misleading claims made by Trump during the course of his unorthodox campaign.

Debate Karma: Donald Trump Mocked on Twitter for Excessive Water Drinking

7 hours ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Donald Trump faced criticism for many of his actions and statements at Monday night's presidential debate against Hillary Clinton - including, of all things, his hydration habits. Several Twitter users called out the Republican presidential candidate for repeatedly reaching for his water glass at the Hofstra University-hosted event. At a campaign rally earlier this year, Trump mocked Florida Sen. Marco Rubio's infamous rebuttal to President Obama's 2013 State of the Union address, during which Rubio repeatedly swigged from his water bottle. Does anyone remember how badly Trump made fun of Marco Rubio for drinking water? Hmm... #debates pic.twitter. »
