What Did We Learn From The Final Debate ?

By Marc Platt
 
Watching the first 30 minutes of the debate, I was reminded on what a fine showman "The Donald" is. I call him "The Donald" here because he is always in performance mode. His top advisors Steve Bannon and Kelly Anne Conway continue to egg him on to say outrageous and controversial things like "I will keep you in suspense" regarding the common acceptance of the final verdict of the people November 8.
 
President Obama has classically reminded us "This is not a show." Mr. President, I respectfully disagree. This has ALL been a show by Trump. They are rolling out "Trump TV" at $9.99 per-month. The 20% of the country who love Breitbart and far right wing conspiracy theory activities will love paying Mr. Trump. These are people who may be bored with Fox News and need a more fiery brand of crazy.
 
Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner has been tasked rounding up the next set of suckers who will invest in this sure-to-fail venture, but not before The Donald walks off with a bunch on cash. He will brand this, but remember my friends he is going to be a huge loser in the election and as so many of his ventures have failed, I give this 2-3 years.
 
Let's see how this plays out, but yes "The Donald" has played the media, the world and the American voters for fools this cycle.
