Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton match-up tonight. How fair will it be?

The audience for this first Donald Trump / Hillary Clinton presidential debate is expected to exceed 100 million viewers — shattering all previous debate records and has the potential to smash viewing records for any live televised event. Football will be on TV tonight, but the NFL won’t be the main draw.

Tonight’s debate will be divided into six-time segments of approximately 15 minutes each on “America’s Direction,” “Achieving Prosperity” and “Securing America.” Moderator Lester Holt will open each segment with a question, after which each candidate will have two minutes to respond. Candidates will then have an opportunity to respond to each other.  There will be no commercial breaks. 

A disturbing Rasmussen Reports poll released this morning indicates a plurality of voters (46%) are convinced the moderators of the upcoming presidential debates will give Hillary Clinton a helping hand.

TV Channels: The debate will be simulcast live on C-SPAN, ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC, as well as all cable news channels including Fox News, CNN and MSNBC.

Live Streaming: All major news networks will offer a free live stream as will YouTube and Twitter.

    As Hillary runs for Obama’s third term, it’s good bet she won’t mention the deplorable crime rate of his hometown of Chicago, where his former Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel is now mayor.
    Even the left-of-center USAToday, couldn’t deny the appalling statistics, using this headline in April.
    Chicago’s murder rate soars 72% in 2016; shootings up more than 88%

    Since the majority of these crimes involve young black men, why aren’t the Black Lives Matter protestors marching through Chicago instead of following the narcissistic loser Jarrett Maupin as he intentionally ties up Phoenix traffic during rush hours?

    I’ve read there will be no coughing break time outs for Hillary. She has holed up preparing for tonight, while Trump has been making appearances before HUUGe crowds.

    Will Hillary be wearing the “ear pearl” as was seen in the photographs taken during the Sept 7 debate?
    NYPD, which was in charge of security, confirmed that it was indeed a very high tech ear wire that not even the Secret Service use.

    Also, reported in the NYPost today the emails have surfaced showing that Tiger Woods reached out to Hillary Clinton several years ago and that her team immediately realized the need to show Tiger ‘a lot of love’. Also discussed among HIllary’s team was the need to introduce Tiger to the Clinton Global Initiative.

    Meanwhile, our country has lost a great man—a man who DID build that. Arnold Palmer passed away in a Pennsylvania hospital last night as he awaited cardiac surgery.

    Arnie not only created an empire for himself, he created a legacy that included a children’s hospital in Orlando; a hospital for women and children; a prostate cancer treatment and research center in California, and a wildlife sanctuary in PA.
    He was not born into wealth—his dad was a steelworker in PA before working as a groundskeeper at the Latrobe country club.

    R.I.P. Arnie. You were one of a kind.

    MIchael Savage’s radio show taken off the air during the live broadcast today. First, in NYC (of course), then stations around the country began shutting him down.

    At the time he was taken off the air, he was discussing Hillary’s state of health.
