Some months ago I wrote here that this year’s election, while involving two candidates whom I cannot support, will at least make for good political theater. What an understatement that was!
So now we see the media engaged in a feeding frenzy over a candid tape of Trump talking of his womanizing, and Trump is now implying that he’ll go after Hillary Clinton for her old attacks on the “victims” of Bill Clinton’s womanizing.
Meanwhile, the (alleged) leaked contents of Hillary’s Wall Street speeches, which also came out yesterday, is getting less coverage, rather muted. This is understandable — the media are in a business and sex always sells — but there is at least genuine bombshell in the speeches, in which Hillary says her dream is open borders.
Tomorrow we have the big debate. But interestingly, there will be a televised debate among Chinese-American supporters of both candidates, in Chinese, this evening, (http://wcmi.us/). See the South China Morning Post (English) article, which has the odd subhead, “Debate, in Mandarin, has been endorsed by Chinese embassy in Washington.” I watched the first few minutes, and I think the organizers were pretty even-handed in providing both sides a chance to support their candidates.
