No, it wasn't that Trump was "put on the defensive" but rather that Clinton chose the "personal and direct" attack ala Alinsky on Trump's reputation as a self-made man (harping on his inheriting 14 million dollars, whcih he borrowed from his dad by the way, and repaid), as an honest man (by insisting he did support the Iraq War even though he denies it), as an employer (by claiming he "stiffed" many a small fry without of course saying why), as a gentleman (by saying he referred to some women as pigs and dogs, without specifying who), and as a model citizen (by questioning whether he had paid enough taxes on his large income last year and in other years). It was a cleverly concealed Ad Hominem verbal assault on Trump that masqueraded as legitimate talk about his qualifications for the post of President.
As a result, there was little time left for Trump to address the problems that America faces today, since he had to address the problems that he faced on the stage first.
Nevertheless, Trump made a good showing. He showed his true gentility in refusing to bring up Bill's infidelities because his daughter, Chelsea, was in the audience. He showed he can afford to LOSE a debate, in order to defend his honor and that of his supporters. In the end, Trump endeared himself all the more to those who supported him, and even to those who used to hate him, because no matter what he stands for, he remained true to himself and his values, and that is what the American people want in their next President.
Besides, who can produce more jobs for America?
Why, of course, Trump, Trump, and Trump!!!
