Good Morning!!

I’m going to put up a quick open thread, because the one from last night is getting very long. I’m also very tired, because I didn’t get to sleep until around 3AM. So here are a few of the things I’m finding this morning.

Howard Dean said what many of us were thinking about Donald Trump’s sniffing last night.

NBC News: Howard Dean: Is Donald Trump a ‘Coke User’?

Washington Post: Howard Dean has a theory about why Donald Trump sniffled 37 times during the debate.

 

Toward the end of the debate, Hillary confronted Donald on his history of offensive remarks about women. She mentioned a former Miss Universe, Alicia Machado whom Trump publicly humiliated because she gained some weight. This morning, he doubled down on his criticism of her on Fox and Friends.

Meanwhile, the Clinton campaign posted this ad.

 

Trump must have known how badly he performed last night, because he went the spin room himself–most candidates leave that to their staff and surrogates.

Some reactions from this morning:

PPP Polling: Voters Nationally Say Clinton Won Debate 51/40.

CNN: Post-debate poll: Hillary Clinton takes round one.Wash

Washington Post: Trump says he may hit ‘harder’ in next debate; Clinton hammers back with web spot.

New Yorker: DONALD TRUMP, A FAILED BULLY IN HIS DEBATE WITH CLINTON.

The Guardian: Hillary Clinton stays calm while Trump loses cool during first presidential debate.

Washington Post: Donald Trump said Hillary Clinton lacked stamina. But guess who wilted in the debate?
