The opportunity

The Onion has it pretty much right.

Saying he hoped the Republican nominee could clear up the matter for American voters, moderator Anderson Cooper reportedly began the second presidential debate Sunday night by giving Donald Trump the opportunity to explain exactly what the fuck is wrong with him. “I’d like to start tonight’s proceedings by asking you, Mr. Trump, to explicitly lay out to the American people what the hell is fucking wrong with you?” said Cooper, adding that it would be helpful if the business magnate would expound on the specifics of why in God’s fucking name he says what he says and behaves the way he does, and how he could even begin to think that’s okay.

He sort of almost did, by telling Trump that what he described on that tape is sexual assault and then asking “Do you understand that?”

But Trump brushed it off with the lying nonsense about lox room bantz, and that was the end of it. It would have been good to see Anderson (I call him Anderson) pursue it, but he didn’t.
