Trump Runs To Hannity For Post-Debate Damage Control

Help me Sean, help!

After a sad performance where even the supposedly quiet, non-interactive audience laughed at the wannabe GOP Führer (when he boasted of his great temperament), Donald Drumpf ran to his old buddy Sean Hannity to triage the drubbing he suffered at the hands of Hillary. The only problem? Nobody believes him, perhaps even his own ego knows it was stomped tonight.

The first thing the candidate addressed was Hillary's 'inadequate' ISIS strategy, and apparently Trump found it unreal that she'd put her strategy to defeat the terrorist organization on her website. Of course, it's not the specifics or the day to day, but hey, who's going to fact check Donny on Fox 'News.' He remarked that it's giving them too much of a hint, and imagine if General Patton did the same thing? Imagine if they had the Internet in WWII.

The second item Hannity addressed was the 'Super-predator' comment and asked his bloviating orange friend about her tendency to demonize him as a racist. He bragged of his respect for African-Americans, except he forgot to mention that it's just the one, 'his African-American.'

This was, without question, an attempt to stop the bleeding. Hannity brought up the Iraq War debacle and mentioned that he used to argue with Donald on that very subject. So that evidence about him saying that he'd invade Iraq be damned, right? He called Sean all the time and obviously didn't concur with his own opinion, as evidenced below. Trump forgets about that whole recording capability thingy. That's because most of his supporters can't look things up, one might imagine.

Lastly Donald was asked about the accusations of sexism. Of course, the whole Bill Clinton infidelity was addressed and, naturally, Trump bragged that he didn't exploit the Lewinsky scandal from the late 1990's in front of Chelsea Clinton, so he's very admirable. He couldn't possibly bring up his own abhorrent sexist past, so of course, her husband is the reason that he's not a sexist. Get it?
