You thought Hillary Clinton, the Democrats and liberals of all parties were afraid of Donald Trump before?
After Sunday night’s debate, they are outright terrified.
That’s because The Donald dropped a nuclear bomb on the presidential debate when he came right out and promised that if he wins the presidency, he will ask the attorney general to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Clinton’s email scandal.

“I’ll tell you what I didn’t think I’d say this and I’m going to say it and hate to say it: If I win, I’m going to instruct the attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation because there’s never been so many lies, so much deception. Never been anything like it and we’re going to have a special prosecutor.
“When I speak, I go out and speak, the people of this country are furious. In my opinion, the people that have been long-term workers at the FBI are furious. There has never been anything like this, where e-mails and you get a subpoena and after getting the subpoena, you delete 33,000 e-mails and then acid wash them or bleach them, a very expensive process. So we’re going to get a special prosecutor because people have been — their lives have been — destroyed for doing one-fifth of what you’ve done. And it’s a disgrace and honestly, you ought to be ashamed.”
But then came the best part, the highlight of the debate, when Hillary gave her flaccid response, conjuring the mystical “fact checkers” on her website, then said: “It’s just awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law of our country.”
To which The Donald snapped, “Because you’d be in jail.”
I imagine in Hillary’s head, the sound must have been similar to the sound a torpedo makes when it breaks the bow of a battleship, because the audience applauded wildly, and she had a stunned grimace on her face like she wanted to flay Trump alive and wear his skin as a cape.
Now, suddenly, the Left is in true panic mode, because they know deep down that Trump’s threat resonated with a large segment of the country. Most of the rest of the debate was less spectacular, but Trump still mopped the floor with Clinton. He was commanding without being overly bossy, he kept on target with the issues he wanted to discuss, he didn’t take any guff from the two moderators, and he called out Clinton whenever he caught her in a lie.
Just for some political theater, Trump also pointed out that several of Bill Clinton’s sexual assault victims were in the audience, as well as the then-12-year-old (now grownup) rape victim whose attacker Hillary got off the hook when she was a lawyer, a case she later laughed about.
Clinton, on the other hand, was her usual deflecting, robotic self, but this time her “Trump so cwazy” act didn’t go over well, and when she tried to link Trump to some imagined increase in school fights, her pun fell flat.
This picture sums up the night for the Clinton family:
This from a party that has, led by President Obama, run roughshod over the Constitution, lied, cheated and bullied its political opponents for eight years. IRS scandal, anyone? Targeting of Christians in the military? Fast and Furious? Benghazi?
Appointing a special prosecutor would be far more legal fair-mindedness than many rascals in Washington deserve.
The Donald’s cry of “you’d be in jail” sounds like a death knell to a lot of people who’ve been feasting at the Obama trough and who were counting on the good times to continue.
Let’s hope they’re right.
