The Second Presidential Debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton will take place on Sunday night. Many will tune in to hear both candidates make their case for President. However, others will be watching to see what Trump has to say in the wake of a video coming out where he said many vile things that would clearly fall on the line of sexual assault. The video was a private conversation from 11 years ago, but that doesn’t excuse his behavior or make it okay.
His campaign went into defense mode on Sunday morning as they cancelled any appearances the Presidential hopeful was going to have. Instead, Rudy Guliani was their designated defender across the various shows.
Sunday night’s debate will surely focus on Trump’s latest scandal. This isn’t the first time the GOP candidate has said something questionable, but now many from the GOP side are backing down their earlier support of Trump. Others who did not support him from the beginning are not in shock over his latest behavior.
The second debate will be in a town hall style. Undecided voters will be asking each candidate questions, as Martha Raddatz and Anderson Cooper serve as co-moderators. Sunday’s topics have not yet been announced, but expect them to be on popular issues that citizens are interested in like foreign policy.
This is a different format than the first debate where NBC’s Lester Holt asked the questions. Many in Trump’s circles didn’t like how more of the questions were focused towards him. They should have loved it as the attention was on Trump and he had ample time to explain his policies and vision for the nation.
SNL and other late-night television personalities have been on fire with what the political season has produced so far. Next week should be even better as Trump and Clinton face off in debate 2.0. The third and final debate will be held in Nevada later this month.
Those without television are in luck as ABC will be streaming tonight’s debate on Facebook. A stream can be found here. Basically almost every news station will air the debate except for NBC, which is locked into showing NFL on Sunday night. So if you need a break from political fodder and craziness, then turn on NBC.
