Notice that stirring in the quiet distance? The rustling along the orange horizon? The calm before the Thursday night storm? You can feel it as sure as you could hear the Obama speech touching a match to the fuse. A tantrum is a comin’… and when it does, you can link it back to Barack Obama’s comments as he hit the campaign trail. “That’s not normal presidential behavior. We wouldn’t tolerate it from a high school principal. We wouldn’t tolerate it from a coach. We wouldn’t tolerate it from a co-worker. We wouldn’t tolerate it in our family, except for maybe crazy uncle somewhere. I mean, why would we expect and accept this from the President of the United States? And why are folks making excuses for that? ‘Oh, well, that’s just him.’ No. There are consequences to these actions. They embolden other people to be cruel and divisive and racist, and it frays the fabric of our society, and it affects how our children see things. And it affects the ways that our families get along. It affects how the world looks at America. That behavior matters. Character matters.”

+ Trump has released an unedited “60 Minutes” interview days before it was scheduled to air. It’s pretty clear that he released the interview early so his awful performance in it will be overshadowed by his awful performance in tonight’s debate. (Elvis just preemptively shot his TV.)
