    This is an open thread to discuss the Presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump as it goes on.

    What are you expecting from the debate? Clinton, Trump, and other supporters alike are welcome to chime in on their opinions.

    I expect Hilary to focus heavily on the economy, and for Trump to spend a lot of time talking about immigration. Game on. Should be interesting.

    Being a Charlotte NC resident, I hope they discuss what's been happening here and in Tulsa. Not that I think it's more important than other topics. But when something is that prevalent in your city, it's nice to hear what they have to say. On a side note, NC is now trying to have a law passed that bans public viewing of police body cameras after what happened here. That is insane and crazy hypocritical. It's a stretch, but I hope they address that.

    I know they are going to be focusing on 3 major topics, per another forum on here: 'America's Direction', 'Achieving Prosperity', and 'Securing America'. Perhaps the securing America part will allow for them to address NC and the other states where protests have broke out.

    I expect police shootings and Black Lives Matter and the like to be brought up, in some way, either directly or indirectly. If not in this debate, definitely in the 2nd or 3rd.

    I for one hope this debate is actually productive, and not just theater. I imagine I'm not alone here..

    I predict Hillary goes after Trump from the right.

    Such as he was called out last week for attempting to take black people's guns by promoting stop and frisk programs.

    There are also his many comments supportive or Russia or Putin she can attack.

    I do wonder how Hilary's temperament will be in this debate. That's what I am most interested in tonight, as I think I have Trump figured out thus far.

    Part of me thinks she will try and be the most presidential and calm one. The other part thinks she will completely go on the attack, and call Trump out all night.. I think it will come down to which voice in her ear she listens to the most - the one that says she should just let Trump hang himself with gaffes, and the other that says she needs to come out swinging and put Trump on the defensive. Or however you want to say it. Coin flip. I suppose we will get a mix of both? We shall see, bout to start.

    The previews for this debate were almost laughable. They seemed like they were showcasing an upcoming boxing match.

    First up: Income inequality. "Trumped up, trickle down"... that's a new one on me. Has she used that one before?

    I think Trump might be sick. He kinda sounds like it. So far, Hilary seems to be going with the calm and collected presidential type. She hasn't dropped the smile yet.

    Fact checker link that Hilary was just talking about:

    Literally Trump (from her website to fact check Trump, in real time)

    "I will release my tax return when SHE releases HER 30,000 deleted emails!". Hard to argue that.

    "We Need Law & Order in the inner cities"
    Trump just said that with respect to stop & frisk. The Law & Order rhetoric sounds like the galactic empire from Star Wars.

    I think she missed many opportunities here to go after Trump. Just stuck to talking points.
