A raging, unhinged Donald Trump threatened Hillary Clinton with prison during a presidential debate unlike any other. But corporate media pundits said he won.
Many debate viewers were baffled by Donald Trump’s bizarre claim that the United States had fallen behind Russia in nuclear weapons strength even though, he said, “Russia is new in terms of nuclear.”
Russia, then the dominant republic in the Soviet Union, detonated its first nuclear weapon in 1949.
"Russia is new in terms of nuclear" says a man who has never heard of the Cold War and uses nuclear like a noun #debates— Amanda Nelson (@ImAmandaNelson) October 10, 2016
TRUMP just hit our nuclear program: "Russia is new in terms of nuclear, we are old and tired in terms of nuclear." #debate— Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) October 10, 2016
