Let me get this straight. Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani, and Newt Gingrich are going to go after Hillary because of her husband's infidelity. These guys? REALLY??

Trump Not Worried About His Marriages Coming Up: 'I Have A Very Good History'

And the Corpulent Trio are going to attack Miss Universe Alicia Machado for gaining weight? (Where's Chris Christie?)
With the Clinton campaign’s help, Ms. Machado has gone on a publicity blitz since Mrs. Clinton told her story on the debate stage at Hofstra University. This explosion of interest is the combination of a political attack that resonates with two key constituencies for Mrs. Clinton — suburban women and Hispanics — and a made-for-television battle between the Republican nominee for president and a beauty queen. In 48 hours, Ms. Machado has been written about in more than 150 print news articles, referred to on TV more than 6,023 times and mentioned on Twitter nearly 200,000 times. She appeared on NBC’s “Today” show, ABC’s “Good Morning America,” CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, Univision and Telemundo. . . .

Miss Australia backs up Machado
“He said to me, ‘Suck your stomach in. Suck your gut in.’ He always wanted us to be sexy,” said Jodi Seal, Miss Australia in the 1996 Miss Universe pageant, the same year that Machado won the title while representing Venezuela. “He was calling some girls some pretty horrible names as well,” she recounted. Calling Trump a “Mussolini-” grade tyrant who regularly mocked women about their bodies . . .
Trumpy lashes out at Machado again, says she has a "sex tape." I won't link here to the many nude and erotic photos Trump's wife Melania has made. I don't care that she has -- but I do care about hypocrisy

Trump's advisors are trying very hard to get through to him that he blew the debate and has to prepare better in the few days he has before the next one. So much that they were willing to leak it to the press. It still hasn't gotten through to him
“Donald Trump is angry that his aides and advisers have conceded to reporters — largely without attribution — that the Republican nominee struggled in his first presidential debate,” CNN reports.
“Why would we change if we won the debate?”
— Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, quoted by the Associated Press, on whether Donald Trump would change his tactics for the next debate.
Wait, wait -- why are you complaining if you WON? The incoherent mixed messages of the Trump team

A bit silly, but clever
"Super Careless, Fragile Ego, Extra Braggadocious"
Trumpy knows he blew it by admitting he doesn't pay taxes. Now he's scrambling desperately to deny what he said
Perhaps now would be a good time to note that “That makes me smart” and “That would make me smart” are not the same sentences.
"Some people loved that statement, and other people didn't. But the fact is that I think people are looking at it like maybe that's the kind of person we need. ... I think that's the kind of thinking we need in our country."

“Donald Trump’s charitable foundation — which has been sustained for years by donors outside the Trump family — has never obtained the certification that New York requires before charities can solicit money from the public, according to the state attorney general’s office,” the Washington Post reports.
Republicans block investigations into Trump's ties to Russia and efforts to hack the election
It is a signature conceit of this candidate, and this campaign, that they keep describing their weaknesses as strengths
Sam Clovis, Donald Trump’s national policy adviser and campaign co-chair, said Monday before the debate that voters don’t care about policy specifics and would be “bored to tears” by them. . . .
When the epitaph is written for the Trump campaign, one thing that will be clear is that he never surrounded himself with people who would really challenge him and force him to change his ways -- and he wouldn't listen when they tried

USA Today doesn't endorse candidates. Never has. Until now
This year, the choice isn’t between two capable major party nominees who happen to have significant ideological differences. This year, one of the candidates — Republican nominee Donald Trump — is, by unanimous consensus of the Editorial Board, unfit for the presidency. From the day he declared his candidacy 15 months ago through this week’s first presidential debate, Trump has demonstrated repeatedly that he lacks the temperament, knowledge, steadiness and honesty that America needs from its presidents. . . .
