Format: Fox News’ Chris Wallace, the moderator of the third and final presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, has announced the topics that will guide the questions at the debate. Wallace will ask questions about debt and entitlements, immigration, the economy, the Supreme Court, foreign hot spots and the candidates’ fitness to be president, according to an announcement made Wednesday by the Commission on Presidential Debates. Each of the six segments will last 15 minutes.

Here’s a preview from USA Today:

Third presidential debates tend to be the least exciting, but Wednesday’s final clash between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton figures to be an exception.

Trump comes roaring into the prime-time face-off at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, claiming that the Clinton campaign, the media and the political establishment are conspiring to “rig” the election against him, using “false” stories from women who have accused him of sexual aggression.

“The media is trying to rig the election by giving credence, and this is so true, by giving credence to false stories that have no validity and making the front page,” Trump said Monday in Green Bay, Wis.

Will the candidate echo his conspiracy claims in Vegas?

“Trump’s participation ensures there shouldn’t be many dull moments on Wednesday night,” said Aaron Kall, director of debate at the University of Michigan.

I’m not sure what to expect tonight, but I’m betting it will look more similar to the first debate than the second debate. I’m sure there’ll be attacks, but I doubt it will be as explosive as last week in St. Louis. Chris Wallace has stated that he will not be fact checking the candidates and instead will let the candidates follow up on each other, which I think is the proper way to approach a debate.

As always, we’ll have the full debate video after it airs.

  • Hillary Clinton stayed on message. Trump did not. Again Trump looked weak and resorted to name calling.
    Not a good sign.

  • Gotta loooove the post debate process, shows how inept cnn is with their videos don't work.

    I work in that career field, it is so INCREDIBLY easy to put that together.

    Sad that cnn can't figure it out, but that's normal.

    • Cosmo: People usually don't go to links. Sometimes they will, if you say what the link proves. So it's a good idea to state your claim in the column, and then put in the link to back you up. That way, if they don't go to the link, they still know what you're saying.

      • That's exactly what I did. I summarized the lawsuit and offered a link to the actual complaint filed in court. Why don't you read one or the other or both?

    • I suppose you consider this good experience: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/lisa-bloom/why-the-new-child-rape-ca_b_10619944.html
      Read for yourself the lawsuit and the affidavits of both the victim and her eyewitness sworn under oath charging that DONALD DRUMPF COMMITTED VIOLENT RAPE ON A THIRTEEN-YEAR-OLD GIRL in 1994, and then MADE DEATH THREATS AGAINST THE VICTIM AND HER FAMILY if she ever were to speak about the incident?

      The lawsuit was filed in the New York federal district court on June 20 naming as defendants Donald Drumpf and his old pal, the billionaire pedophile and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, and this article by veteran journalist and lawyer Lisa Bloom was published on June 29, long before the more recent spate of allegations by nearly a dozen victims of sexual assault at the hands (small as they are) of Herr Drumpf, all of which are consistent with those described in this article as well as with previous accusations regarding Drumpf’s lifelong history of sexual misconduct toward women. #MakeDonaldDrumpfAgain

      The next court hearing in this child rape case has been scheduled for December, just as the trial in the Drumpf University case in San Diego has been postponed conveniently to late November to allow the defendant to become president in time to pardon himself.

      Have we as a nation descended so low that we would even contemplate electing a degenerate psychopathic monster like this to the highest office in the land?


      • huffington post is funded by Soros, hitlery puppet master, ergo your lack of critical thinking condemns you to a being a brainwashed fool who cant see the forrest for the trees

      • So Google is the source of pure facts now with their slanted search results and CEO on Clintons team? Really?

  • Wow, more "balanced' commentary from MSNBC. All four panelists against Trump, cuts to Clinton's campaign manager and two cuts to each side of the spin room, both against Trump and cutting of Trumps campaign manager mid-sentence. Yet it is outrageous to call this rigged and MSM on Clinton's side.

    • The networks seem to like to spend a segment of time on one candidate, and then go to the other, so it seems like they're all one way, and then it seems that they're all the way on the other. But MSNBC is not "MSM," just as Fox is not. They pander to their audience.

  • So more "balanced" reporting from MSNBC?
    All of the panel against Trump and a full comment from Clinton's campaign manager but Trump's is cut off mid sentence?
    Yet is is outrageous to suggest that the MSM are showing blatant bias...

  • accepted miss pearl...sorry you cant decide.being a male i see trump as another male.i very rarely ever speak about women in disparaging way.i have...have you ever made a remark you regretted later or said something in the company of women about men...it isnt done?is is...all the time everyday.what bill clinton did is far worse.other presidents have but they were discreet.slimy slick willie is a perv and beneath contempt.i dont want bill clinton back in the WH.thank the lord trump won
