The debate will, of course, be slanted as CNN’s Anderson Cooper and ABC’s Martha Raddatz, do their best to shoot softballs to Hillary while attempting to discredit Donald in the process.
Their collective brain power will not be up for the task.
Donald Trump will make Hillary wonder why she showed up for the debate.
The second debate comes just two days after a bombshell Donald Trump tape and new Wikileaks disclosures about Hillary Clinton.
The debate — moderated by CNN’s Anderson Cooper and ABC’s Martha Raddatz — will take place at Washington University in St. Louis. It’s scheduled to begin at 9 p.m. ET (6 p.m. PT). The debate will be town hall-style, with half of the questions coming directly from the undecided voters in attendance. The other half of the questions will come from Cooper and Raddatz, and will be “based on topics of broad public interest as reflected in social media and other sources,” according to the

This second of three debates comes as the countdown to the election enters its final month — and as new controversies are swirling. Trump’s campaign is reeling from withering criticism and withdrawn endorsements in light of a 2005 video in which the Republican nominee brags and jokes about sexually assaulting women. Trump offered an online apology for his crude remarks hours after news of the tape broke on Friday, but that hasn’t stopped calls for him to step down.
The Trump controversy has overshadowed the Wikileaks release on Friday of purported emails from Clinton adviser John Podesta. The (unverified) messages include the first publicly available excerpts from Clinton’s high-priced speeches to Wall Street firms. It was those speeches — and the closeness they implied with the financial institutions footing the bill — for which opponent Senator Bernie Sanders repeatedly criticized her earlier this year during their Democratic primary battle.
Expect both the Trump tape and the Podesta emails to be hot topics at the debate.
The debate will be widely available on TV and online. Here are just some of the different ways to tune in:
- The debate will be broadcast live on ABC, CBS, CNN, C-SPAN, Fox, Fox News, MSNBC and PBS. (Note: CNET is a subsidiary of CBS.)
- Because NBC stations will be showing Sunday Night Football, NBC is broadcasting the debate live on YouTube, as well as on its Cozi broadcast stations in some cities.
- A live stream of the debate will also be available for free on Twitter and Facebook.
- CBS News will also provide a free live stream through its CBSN service, which is available on Android, iPhone and iPad, Roku, Fire TV, and on the web.
