The first of the 2016 Presidential
Debates was held Monday and
revealed a fairly shaken Donald
Trump and relatively calm and
rehearsed Hillary Clinton. Topics
ranged from Trump’s not paying
taxes to Clinton’s deletions of
emails as moderator Lester Holt
tried to keep everything on track.

persistent sniffles, Trump was ac-
cused of being on cocaine by for-
mer Vermont Gov. Howard Dean.
