The entire world's movers and shakers, swindlers and fakers, public money piss-takers will be watching in trepidation at what Trump will do to them. The entire world's great and the good, high and the mighty, shifty and flighty will be supporting Hillary. Will you be with the people supporting Trump?

Have you got the ice cream, the chocolate, the biscuits and the matchsticks to keep the eyelids open ready?

As a warm-up, here is Sky News's 30 minute documentary shown last night

"Trump. Could it really happen?"

Well my record for staying up to watch live US tv isn't great but I'm giving it a go! grin So far I've managed to the half time show at the Super Bowl so I should still be awake by the end of this with coffee and Pringles.
I'm wondering if Trumps media advisors (if he has any) have managed to rein him in a bit, he can't go much further just by being a scrapper - he's going to have to start to appear statesman like to win over any undecideds and Voters who just don't like Clinton. They won't vote for someone who is going to end up getting told 'no Sir that start world war 3' time and again for his first 100 days..

No because
A- I've got to get up at half six for work
B- if I watch Trump speak for more than 30 seconds I'll have to throw a heavy object at the TV.

WinchesterWoman Mon 26-Sep-16 23:11:15

coldcanary Mon 26-Sep-16 23:13:33

OFGS I thought it started at 11 our time - Fox isn't even starting to cover it till 1.50!! That will be a no then, I'll watch it on catch up in the morning. I have to get up at 6.45..

RTKangaMummy Mon 26-Sep-16 23:39:57

I'm watching (CNN) with popcorn and beer. Husband is in bed so I shall be keeping an eye on this thread for ranting / moral support. Who else is up?

AppleMagic Tue 27-Sep-16 01:46:53

I'm up. But it's on at 8pm here.

Canyouforgiveher Tue 27-Sep-16 01:47:12

this about sums it up for me

GeekyWombat Tue 27-Sep-16 01:56:27

That cartoon is brilliant... And does sum up the potential horror.

IminaPickle Tue 27-Sep-16 01:56:44

It's in Radio 4/ world service 🙌🏻👯
I'm going to go down make a cup of tea and watch a couple of minutes and back to bed!

SenecaFalls Tue 27-Sep-16 02:00:45

Nine o'clock here. It's just starting.

Nate Silver, who accurately predicted every state result in the last few presidential elections, says it's effectively a dead heat going into this debate.

RTKangaMummy Tue 27-Sep-16 02:05:03

I am in UK so it is 2am and so not sure if I will make it all the way to the end

Glad no adverts even on Channel 4 although I have decided BBC1

BelfastBloke Tue 27-Sep-16 02:08:20

CNN seems to be the only channel which has a constant split-screen, showing both candidates all the time.

I'm currently on holiday in Florida, sat with a nice cold drink watching the debate

sailawaywithme Tue 27-Sep-16 02:17:37

Sitting here watching it.

claig Tue 27-Sep-16 02:22:01

Hi everyone. Trump storming ahead already. What has she done for the last 30 years? Brilliant.

I'm watching it on Fox.

BelfastBloke Tue 27-Sep-16 02:30:28

Now he’s talking and shouting over the moderator. He’s out of control. “She’s been fighting ISIS her entire adult life”? What is he talking about?

claig Tue 27-Sep-16 02:35:52

'“She’s been fighting ISIS her entire adult life”? What is he talking about?'

He is sending out a signal to the audience. How come they can't sort Isis out over all these years? E verybody knows Trump will do it in weeks. What is up that she and her mates can't?

claig Tue 27-Sep-16 02:38:47

Wow. Trump got her big time. She keeps saying her email thing "was a mistake". That is probably advice on her nerd handlers. But Trump cut through the spin by simply saying "that wasn't a mistake. It was deliberate" and there were no wonks on stage to help her.
