Детский лепет, или что буквально говорил Трамп на последнем раунде дебатов

Очент сложно давать оценки тому, что видишь и слышишь в ходе дебатов Трампа с Клинтон. Тем, кто у нас сам не смотрит это "выдающееся" политическое зрелище не верится, насколько беспомощен Трамп как кандидат на самую - хорошо, одну из самых - важных должностей в мире. Пересказ и анализ - бессильны передать, насколько несостоятелен был бы Трамп в качестве кандидата даже на должность мэра заурядного городка (увы, этогл совершенно не поймешь, к примеру, из очередной дезориентирующей реплики Константина Сонина по поводу дебатов). Поэтому - прямая речь самого Трампа (привожу без перевода, который неизбежно "приглаживал" произносимое им):

"First of all, she wants to give amnesty, which is a disaster and very unfair to all the people who are waiting in line for many years. We need strong borders. In the audience tonight we have four mothers of — I mean, these are unbelievable people that I've gotten to know over a period of years whose children have been killed, brutally killed by people who came into the country illegally. You have mothers, fathers, relatives all over the county. They're coming in illegally.


Drugs are pouring in through the border. We have no country if we have no border. Hillary wants to give amnesty, she wants to have open borders.

As you know, the border patrol agency, 16,500-plus ICE last week endorsed me. First time they've ever endorsed a candidate. It means their job is tougher, but they know what's going on. They know it better than anybody. They want strong borders. They feel we have to have strong borders. I was up in New Hampshire, the biggest complaint they have with all the problems going on in the world, many of the problems caused by Hillary Clinton and by Barack Obama, all of the problems, their single biggest problem is heroin that pours across our southern borders, just pouring and destroying their youth. It's poisoning the blood of their youth and plenty of other people.

We have to have strong borders. We have to keep the drugs out of our country. Right now we're getting the drugs, they're getting the cash. We need strong borders. We absolute -- we cannot give amnesty.

Now I want to build a wall. We need the wall. The Border Patrol, ICE, they all want the wall. We stop the drugs, shore up the border.

One of my first acts will be to get all of the drug lords, we have some bad, bad people in this country that have to go out. We'll get them out, secure the border, and once the border is secured, at a later date we'll make a determination as to the rest. But we have some bad hombres here and we're going to get them out".

После очередного - согласно опросам - поражения Трампа в дебатах оба кандидата вышли на финишную прямую. И сегодня речь идет уже фактически только о двух вариантах исхода президентских выборов США - с большим или не очень разрывом одержит в них победу Хиллари Клинтон.

P.S. Известный американский специалист по электоральной статистике Нэйт Силвер подвел итоги всех трех раундов дебатов в таком твите: "До первого раунда: Клинтон +1,5%. До второго раунда: Клинтон +5,6%. До третьего раунда: Клинтон +7,1%".
