MSNBC even anticipated the trend (they got the memo early): Trump sounds dark note ahead of debate. New Zealand got the memo late (must be that dateline thingy): 'Dark, bitter and vicious' - the verdict on second debate. How many days before the event occurred did the 'journolosts' invent the 'dark tone' theme? Chris Cilliza at the Washington Post apparently missed the memo, and resorted to complaining that Trump called her by appropriate pronouns: The Hapless and Ovoid Chris Cillizza Now Complains That Trump Referred to Hillary By Her (Allegedly) Gender-Appropriate Pronouns, WaPo‘s Chris Cillizza Complains That Trump Kept Calling Clinton ‘She’ and ‘Her’.

Bill, Chelsea’s ‘Office Crap’ Drove A Top Clinton Foundation Official Suicidal
Former President Bill Clinton’s chief adviser at the time, Doug Band, sent an email to the former president’s staff involved with the Clinton Foundation that he talked the nonprofit’s COO, Laura Graham, out of ending her life.Hillary In Leaked Email: Saudi Arabia And Qatar Are Funding ISIS. Curiously, both Saudi Arabia and Qatar are also big donors to the Clinton Foundation. Coincidence?
“Late last night, laura graham called me as she couldn’t reach my brother or her shrink,” Band wrote in a Dec. 2011 email chain discussing the Clinton Foundation’s “infrastructure.”
“She was on staten island in her car parked a few feet from the waters edge with her foot on the gas pedal and the car in park,” he wrote. “She called me to tell me the stress of all of this office crap with wjc and cvc as well as that of her family had driven her to the edge and she couldn’t take it anymore.”
Clinton Campaign Email Outlines Effort "To Produce and Unaware and Compliant Citizenry" To be fair, they started with the process well underway.
Nothing got more press than Trump's offhand statement that he'd appoint a special prosecutor, and Hillary would go to jail. His campaign manager called it "a quip". Hysterics ensued: CNN compares Trump to Putin, Mugabe for ‘You’d be in jail’ remark, ABC Trump's 'You'd Be in Jail' Debate Jab at Clinton Condemned New York Times:
But it’s not Mr. Trump’s open contempt for the norms of liberal democracy that made my blood run cold. It was the applause that came after. It is the fact that it’s no longer assured that you automatically lose a presidential debate in which you promise to jail your political rival.But at reason: Trump’s Call for Clinton’s Prosecution Is Only Deemed ‘Outrageous’ Because of the Target and remember 16 Times Democrats Tried To Prosecute Their Opponents

Man in ‘Bill Clinton Rape’ T-Shirt Pops Up at Hillary Rally – (VIDEO), Is she calling for violence? Clinton suggests intervention for protester wearing Bill Clinton 'rape' shirt
CNN says that like it’s a bad thing.
"You know," Clinton said after the demonstrator was forcibly removed from her campaign event, "I do hope somebody follows that gentleman out and stages an intervention."Only One Way for the FBI to Regain Its Lost Reputation
The demonstrator, an African-American man, was wearing a shirt featuring a likeness of Bill Clinton with the word "RAPE" printed across the front.
There is only one thing, at this point, that can rehabilitate the reputation of a once honorable organization now up to its neck in the muck of influenced investigations and tampered justice. A number of current FBI agents must publicly condemn Director Comey and deplore the deeply disturbing, very unusual actions taken by the FBI in these investigations. This may cost the agents involved their careers, but agents who care about the agency more than their careers will take that risk. These agents ought to explain exactly how this investigation was utterly wrong and how it deviated from normal practices.Not even close to convincing for me: Glenn Beck: I’ve considered voting for Hillary Clinton
Director Comey compelled twenty-five agents to sign nondisclosure agreements, but these agreements cannot prevent these agents from publicly criticizing how politicized the investigation appeared to them. In fact, this might even be more telling: "We have been ordered by Director Comey to sign nondisclosure agreements, so until he releases us from those agreements, we cannot provide details, but we can say this: the whole thing stinks from top to bottom. Everything about this investigation fails the smell test. If Director Comey will release us from the nondisclosure agreements, we will be happy to say more.
