When facts, logic and history don’t matter

Today 06:07 GMT

We are operating in an alternate universe where the geometry is non-Euclidean, facts don’t matter, history and logic have disappeared.

A fight between the Republican presidential nominee and a former Miss Universe, whom he had 20 years ago called Miss Piggy and other choice pejoratives. Just a few weeks earlier, we were seized by a transient hysteria over a minor Hillary Clinton lung infection hyped to near-mortal status.

Democrats Eye Hillary Clinton’s Confidence After Debate With Caution

Thursday 14:21 GMT

Last week, Democrats could hardly hide their neurosis about tightening poll numbers and the pressure on Hillary Clinton to regain her footing in the first debate against Donald J. Trump on Monday.

Even with a newfound spring in their step, Democrats say that Mr. Trump has repeatedly proven his ability to bounce back and that the solid reviews for Mrs. Clinton’s debate performance may do more to improve perceptions about her candidacy than actual poll numbers.

Trump campaign says debate two must be better

Thursday 16:16 GMT

Dissatisfied with the debate performance were Trump's children, according to a campaign aide, who said they wish campaign leadership had forced him to take it more seriously.

Team Trump scheduled campaign events until two days before the debate and Trump criticized Clinton on stage during the faceoff for hunkering down and leaving the campaign trail to prepare. Trump aides said that a strategy of winging it will not be the path forward the October 9 showdown in St. Louis.

Clinton winning the post-debate as Trump sweats in his own spotlight

Thursday 12:15 GMT

She’s doing it without really doing much — letting Donald J. Trump have the spotlight is working for her, and here’s why.

Clinton got Trump to tacitly acknowledge he didn’t pay federal taxes during at least two years exposed by tax records filed in connection with a casino application. His response: “That makes me smart,” a line still echoing in the shaking heads of less-well-heeled taxpayers, is sure to show up in ads.

The first debate was a defeat for Trump. Here’s why the second could be an outright massacre.

Thursday 22:18 GMT

We’re ten days from his second debate with Hillary Clinton, and while most voters and virtually every sane observer agree that Trump did poorly in the first debate, a spate of reporting suggests that his campaign, and especially Trump himself, are in a state of deep denial about what happened and what he needs to do in order to have a different outcome next time.

Secondly, the setting of a town hall debate, with the candidates sitting and walking around amidst a group of voters, creates a different dynamic that Trump may not be attuned to.

Donald Trump, press-shy The once ubiquitous candidate is moving away from media

Today 02:13 GMT

The man who boosted his candidacy during the primaries by seeming to be everywhere at once in the media has given relatively few interviews to national news outlets in recent weeks other than Fox News.

Granted, Trump did emerge from a relative quiescence to do something unprecedented for a major presidential candidate: After the first debate Monday, he visited the “spin” room himself and gave brief, impromptu interviews.

Donald Trump unlikely to change debate style despite harsh reviews

Thursday 22:16 GMT

Unmoved by harsh debate reviews, a defiant Donald Trump showed no sign Wednesday of embracing any big changes before his second faceoff with Hillary Clinton, pressing ahead with a strategy focused on speaking directly to his white working-class loyalists across the Midwest.

WATCH: Trump calls first presidential debate ‘exciting’; claims polls said he won. Unlike Clinton, Trump is not planning to participate in any mock debates, although he is likely to incorporate what one person described as “tweaks” to his strategy.

Taxes: The gift Trump keeps on handing to Clinton

Thursday 18:21 GMT

Donald Trump continues to double down on controversial remarks he made during the first presidential debate Monday night, giving his rival, Hillary Clinton, and her supporters more ammunition to attack.
