Last night's presidential debate was the sole topic of Tuesday's 360. That's okay, it was the first debate and it was a big deal. However, the CNN website has an article wrapping up the debate in two minutes. I don't need a one-hour analysis and really don't need two hours. But I did take a few notes of what was covered in the first hour:

- Anderson and Sara Murray about post-debate Trump while she was at a noisy Trump rally, a short clip of a Randi Kaye report interviewing Trump supporters how they feel about last night's debate and a panel of 5 which I didn't watch.

- The Hillary Clinton post-debate side with Jeff Zeleny then a panel of 6 but I went away.

- Brian Todd's report on comments during the debate, Trump's on Hillary's stamina, Hillary's on Trump's nasty comments on women in particular Alicia Machado, former Miss Universe, and her weight, review of Trump's remarks about Machado back in 1996 and defense of those comments now. The panel this time was three women: Kaleigh McEnany, Gloria Borger and Maria Cordona. I stayed and watched this time because maybe Anderson would ask McEnany if it was okay for an employer to to call a woman "an eating machine" in front of others. Bingo! Anderson asked if it would be okay if that happened to her and McEnany said it would. Someone give that woman two dozen cheeseburgers and then see if Trump still wants her as one of his parrots. The panel also discussed whether Trump was rattled, whether Machado threatened Trump as he claimed and the impact of the Machado/weight issue will have on voters.

- The rest of Kaye's report on Trump supporters. Of course they defended him; one woman was really riled up about Kaye even questioning their support and others had to step in to stop the woman from flying completely off the handle.

- Anderson showed a montage of a handful of Trump's 40+ sniffles during the debate, about which Trump said "There were no sniffles." There was a short Q&A with Dr. Jack Brown. Brown said the sniffles could have been anxiety. He also talked about Trump drinking a lot, Hillary's "blink rate", Trump rocking back and forth and Hillary's firm shoulders. Brown's grading on the candidates in terms of body language, "I would give Trump a C and Clinton an A-."
Anderson previewed the start of the second hour: more debate coverage.

Thanks, ATA, for posting Anderson's interview with Alicia Machado. She is being talked about all over the place today and an interview with her should have been considered important enough to be in the first hour instead of the lower-Nielsens second hour. I appreciated seeing the interview here. Machado comes across as a smart strong woman, Loved her remark on Trump "He can say whatever he wants to say, I don't care." and "And I can show my taxes!"

Because of "Gotham", I won't be able to watch Monday's 360 for a while.

The best moment on 360 was when AC, Gloria Borger, Angela Rye and Maria Cardona all ganged up on K-Lee and basically implied that she was a ridiculous liar about not minding if Trump were to call her an 'eating machine'.

I have a feeling that AC is going to go all in on Benghazi and emails when he moderates the next debate--nevermind that Hillary Clinton has been cleared of any wrongdoing in both of those cases and that both subjects have been rehashed endlessly to no effect--the only people who can't let go of those topics are anti-Hillary reporters and Republicans. Trump's bad business practices and failures, his refusal to release his tax returns, his racist, sexist tendencies, his unstable termperament and his overall lack of knowledge needed to be POTUS are far bigger issues and threats than HRC's 'scandals'.

@ARIES MOON; I HAVE A FEELING YOUR ARE RIGHT. AC DOES HIS HOMEWORK AND HE WILL GO AFTER HILLARY ABOUT BENGHAZI AND THE PERSONAL SERVER INQUIRY, WHILE DUMBO CAN'T EVEN TELL AC WHAT A
SERVER IS. GULP,GULP, GULP. FOR A MAN WHO HAS SO MUCH CONFIDENCE TRUMP SURE DRANK A WHOLE LOT
OF WATER, WHICH IMHO, SHOWS HIM TO BE NOT ONLY OVER WEIGHT, BUT WEAK. HE REALLY SHOULD DO SOMETHING ABOUT THE "DRY MOUTH SYNDROME."
@JAANZA; THE INTERVIEW WITH ALICIA MACHADO WAS VERY TELLING. IMAGINE MAKING HER JUMP ROPE WHEN
SHE WAS JUST 18, IN FRONT OF THE PRESS. SHE WAS WELL SPOKEN DURING AC'S INTERVIEW.
JEFF LORD ALLUDED TONIGHT THAT THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN COMPLAINED ABOUT CNN'S "UNFAIR REPORTING
PRACTICES." REALLY?
DOES DUMBO TAKE ANY RESPONSIBILITY FOR A POOR PERFORMANCE DURING THE DEBATE? OH THAT'S RIGHT, HE HAD A BAD MIC OR AS HILLARY WOULD SAY, "SOMEONE WAS TAMPERING WITH YOUR MIC, DONALD."
THE NY POST IS REPORTING THAT TRUMP IS BLAMING HIS MAIN MAN, ROGER AILES FOR HIS LACK OF PREPARATION.
JON STEWART WAS EXACTLY RIGHT. TRUMP IS A "MAN/BABY." CHILDREN BLAME OTHERS FOR THEIR FAILURES AND WE CAN'T AFFORD TO HAVE "A CHILD FOR PRESIDENT," AND PRESIDENT WEAKNESS IS FAT.

AFTER LISTENING TO ALICIA'S INTERVIEW WITH AC AGAIN I HAVE COME AWAY WITH THESE THOUGHTS.
IF ONE LATIN AMERICAN VOTES FOR TRUMP, THEY DESERVE WHAT THEY GET.
IF ONE WOMAN, EDUCATED OR NOT, VOTES FOR TRUMP, THEY DESERVE WHAT THEY GET.
AFTER THE ABUSE SHE SPOKE SO COHERENTLY ABOUT, IF ONE DOCUMENTED IMMIGRANT VOTES FOR TRUMP, THEY DESERVE
WHAT THEY GET.
UNFORTUNATELY WE WILL HAVE TO SUFFER WITH THEM.

@CAPPY, 'weak' describes Trump in every possible way, as does 'man/baby'!
