Trump’s 600-lb Speech
Trump gave arguably his best speech of the campaign. It was focused, stayed on message, and was devastated Hillary Clinton’s claims of having the experience to be President of the United States.
Trump attacked Hillary’s shameless lies, including her debunked story of landing under sniper fire in Bosnia. Who lies about something like that and gets away with it? He also addressed her email scandal.

Sam discusses his accidental viewing of the TLC program My 600-lb Life. The episode followed nearly 700-lb Pauline Potter who was too fat to have gastric bypass surgery.

Her response? “But I don’t want to…”
