Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America react to hacked audio from February, in which Hillary Clinton says Sanders supporters are living in their parents’ basements buying into a false promise of a political revolution. They also slam Rudy Giuliani for saying we’ve all had infidelities. And we disagree that Donald Trump is a genius for using massive losses in 1995 to legally avoid federal income taxes for almost 20 years, but also slam critics who say he should have paid anyway and that paying taxes is some form of patriotism.
Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are pleased to see millennials very discouraged by the 2016 campaign and don’t blame them one bit.

And we analyze Donald Trump’s late-night Twitter rant over Alicia Machado.
Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America get a kick out of Hillary Clinton claiming that her massive wealth does not hinder her understanding of what working Americans go through but Donald Trump’s does.

And they have fun with Howard Dean’s speculation that Donald Trump may be using cocaine.
Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America shake their heads at the pre-debate circus, including the Clinton campaign demanding that Lester Holt play fact checker. They also slam Ted Cruz for endorsing Trump after saying in July he would not be a “servile puppy” to someone who attacked his wife and father. And they laugh as Bernie Sanders, who ran a campaign calling for a political revolution, tells his supporters not to cast protest votes for third party candidates.
