If you stay up late enough watching MSNBC after a presidential debate, you get to hear some off-the-wall stuff, such as Hugh Hewitt saying Al Franken's election in 2008 went Franken's way because of election fraud (by election officials) in Minneapolis, and that Democratic voters in open-primary states got Trump elected to the Republican nomination. Yes, he really said those things last night.
But you also see footage like this, in which Rachel Maddow says the following about Trump's perpetual claim that Clinton should have changed the tax laws to stop him from paying no taxes or stopped Chinese steel imports:
The problem is, when [Trump] said, You should have stopped me from doing it, you should have passed a law to ban me from doing it.... Well, if you're conceding that you'll act as badly as you can, as immorally as you can, in your own interest, whenever you can — why should we elect you to be president of the United States, where there will be fewer constraints on your power as a human being than any other human in a nondespotic country on earth?A good question, Rachel. So much of how civil societies run is premised on the idea that people will mostly do the right thing, even if it's not written in the law. Sociopaths take advantage of that. But usually, we don't elect one to be president.
