This Debate Is Hillary Clinton’s Kobayashi Maru — And Her Only Option Is Annihilation | Above the Law7 hours ago As no-win situations go, Hillary Clinton is facing her Kobayashi Maru in tonight’s debate with Donald Trump. The simulation has been programed for her to lose. Either Trump is going to be a misogynist windbag who dominates the debate, and the post debate coverage. Or he is going to be relaxed and disinterested, and the media will call him “Presidential” simply by dint of not visibly foaming at the mouth.
If Hillary fights, she loses. People will call her “shrill” or “angry” or whatever other word working-class whites use as a placeholder for “bitch” when in polite company. If Clinton is defensive, she loses. They will call her “defensive” regardless, but more so if she actually is. Trump will be called “strong” and “clear,” while Clinton will get dinged for giving detailed, nuanced answers. People are already warning Clinton not to be “too lawyerly”… in a debate… where someone will ask her if she violated the LAW! The die of crap has already been cast, and the odds are not in her favor.
