The first presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton is in the books, and the front page of the New York Times registered an amazingly slanted front-page “news analysis” by Michael Barbaro and Matt Flegenheimer. They sternly rebuked Trump for daring to suggest Hillary Clinton had once been insensitive about race: "No amount of practice, it seemed, could fully prepare her -- or perhaps anyone -- for Donald J. Trump’s hurricane of factual distortion, taunting interruptions and blustery generalities."

Hollywood isn’t the only form of entertainment attacking Donald Trump. Now, theaters around the country have joined the fight. According to a New York Times article published September 25, Tony Taccone and Bennett S. Cohen of the Berkeley Repertory Theater have created a new adaptation of Sinclair Lewis’s 1935 novel “It Can’t Happen Here,” which explores the concept of Americans electing their first dictator. The novel was inspired by the rise of fascism, Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini.

Within mere seconds of the first 2016 presidential debate ending Monday night, CNN’s post-debate analysis was dedicated to critiquing Donald Trump’s performance. The first round of critiques came from Jake Tapper who stated he felt that the first 30 minutes went well for Trump, while the following hour was dominated by Hillary Clinton. His colleagues Wolf Blitzer and John King agreed with both noting Trump took Clinton’s bait often and his many lies, respectively.

Liberal cheerleader Chris Matthews could barely contain his excitement, Monday, spinning “brilliant” Hillary Clinton’s debate performance as a “home run” and declaring the race to be “over.” Matthews resorted to movie references, declaring, “I was watching A Few Good Men and she was Tom Cruise and he was Jack Nicholson. It was not close. It was over tonight.”

With little time left between the conclusion of Monday’s presidential debate and the late local newscasts, ABC, CBS, and NBC used the roughly 20 minutes before 11:00 p.m. Eastern to offer emotions ranging from complimenting Hillary Clinton as “pleasant” and hitting Donald Trump as “condescending” and “rude” to even wondering why Clinton’s e-mails were barely mentioned.

Multiple polls show that the economy is foremost in voters minds, but the economic segment of the debate failed to dive deep into the state of the U.S. economy. And the tough economic questions were from one side: the left.

Debate moderator Lester Holt repeatedly challenged Donald Trump during Monday night’s highly anticipated debate, but refrained from going after Hillary Clinton in the same aggressive manner. Holt also minimized the Democrat’s e-mail scandal. It was only brought up because Trump did so.

With the first 2016 presidential debate just minutes away on Monday, the pro-Hillary Clinton panelists on CNN’s Debate Night in America were firing on all cylinders. “It is very, very difficult to become a master of a single policy area,” stated CNN contributor Van Jones, “She is the Michael Jordan of policy in multiple, multiple areas and we almost treat it like it's a bad thing.”
