As Jeb Bush et al discovered, it's not easy debating D.J. Trump. Most people enter debates thinking about making points which, when fact checked or analyzed by the chattering legions of post debate on camera faces, hold up.
Mr. Trump operates in an alternative universe--the solar system of the grade school play ground in which you answer your antagonist by braying, "Oh, you're so ugly."
Actually, even at the upper strata of intellect, this technique has been applied with effect: Drunk at a dinner party, Winston Churchill was upbraided by a society doyen, in her diamond necklace and silk dress, looking down her nose at him, she intoned in her best upper class scandalized accent, "Sir, you are drunk!"
To which Churchill responded. "Madame, you are correct. I am drunk. But in the the morning, I shall be sober and you shall still be ugly."
For the Donald, at the low end of the intellectual spectrum it was enough to simply deride Marco Rubio as being small of stature, or Jeb Bush as being "low energy."
He'll look down at the diminutive Hillary Clinton and tell her she is short and fat, tired, worn out, menopausal and harboring some un named illness which disqualifies her.
Ms. Clinton, who has studied the preparation notebook for the debate and is ready to do her best court room analytics will have problems responding.
One hopes she is working not on the details contained in that 500 page notebook, but on counter punches to the jibes.
"Mr. Trump you pride yourself on an animal faculty, in which the chimpanzee is your equal and the jackass infinitely your superior." (My favorite.)
"Mr. Trump, you mistake physical size for largeness of spirit: If ever there was a person who proved the two are not always connected, it must be you."
"Mr. Trump you mistake libido for valor. You may excel at the former but you have shown no evidence of the latter."
"Mr. Trump, I would rather be the wife of Bill Clinton than any of your--how many?--wives."
"Mr. Trump, you mistake a loud voice for a clear head."
"Mr. Trump, on what planet do you spend the majority of your time?"
"Mr. Trump in what alternative universe are you living--in which a wall can prevent illegal immigration and in which every Muslim is an enemy by virtue of their faith?"
"Mr. Trump you vilify Muslims and Hispanics as dangerous enemies not because of what they have done, but because of where they come from."
And all like that.
But what are the chances?
