Highlights of Clinton, Trump debate

two-300x169

The second presidential debate is in the can. Here’s what happened:

  • It was a nasty affair without perhaps being quite so sordid or raw as might have been expected, given Donald Trump’s signal beforehand that he would attack Hillary Clinton as an enabler of her husband’s sins.
  • Challenged to defend his recently uncovered hot mic remarks about grabbing women, Trump said they amounted to “locker room” talk he was embarrassed by – but he denied he had assaulted women, whereas, he said, Bill Clinton had been “so abusive to women.”
  • second-us-presidential-debate
  • Clinton did not respond to Trump’s catalog of her husband’s sins, apart to say it was inaccurate. “When they go low, you go high,” she said.
  • Clinton placed Trump’s hot mic remarks in context with others – she listed his attack on the Khan family, his “birther” attack on Obama, his attack on a disabled reporter and his attack on a federal judge of Mexican descent – to paint Trump as an unreformed bully. She said Trump “owes the country an apology.”
  • Trump projected intense hostility for Clinton. He repeatedly called her a liar, leered at her, scoffed, said she had accomplished nothing in her career, loomed behind her as she spoke with audience members, and told her if he were president, “you’d be in jail.” He pointed at her, and said, “she has tremendous hate in her heart.”
  • “I know you’re into big diversion tonight,” Clinton told Trump. “Anything to avoid talking about your campaign and its explosion and how Republicans are leaving it.”
  • More than one snap analyst – FWIW – thought Trump had “shored up his base” of supporters by attacking Clinton over deleted emails, Benghazi and other issues. Few asserted that he had broadened his appeal.
  • Twice Clinton said that Russia was seeking to influence the election, and not on her behalf.
  • Trump said he disagreed with running mate Mike Pence’s assertion that the United States should consider military force to oppose Russian aggression in Syria. Pence tweeted congratulations after.
  • Trump also said there’s no Muslim ban plan anymore: “The Muslim ban is something that in some form has morphed into extreme vetting.”
  • A few times, Trump seemed to shock Clinton. He said that Capt. Humayun Khan would still be alive if he, Trump, were president. Clinton’s foreign policy spokesman replied:
  • hillary-clinton-donald-trump-68b64d97-bf93-4822-922e-4dfe9a21a485
  • Trump admitted unapologetically that he had applied almost a billion in personal losses to not pay federal income tax. “Of course I do.”
  • Trump staged a media event before the debate with three women who have accused Bill Clinton of sexual assault or rape and one woman raped as a child whose assailant Hillary Clinton defended as a 27-year-old lawyer.
  • Clinton was asked about a line from a Wikileaks version of a purported paid speech in which she describe a president’s need to have separate public and private faces. She said she was talking about Abraham Lincoln.
  • The candidates did not shake hands when they arrived at the town hall. Trump had the sniffles. And he complained a lot about the moderators letting Clinton talk more than him. A time clock count afterwards showed the time was split evenly.

Zimbabwean Church leader in s*x scandal as photos naked photos and sex acts with 33 girls is exposed

Church leader
A Zimbabwean church leader, Nyasha Light Nyatsungo is enmeshed in a sex scandal and might also be facing legal action, after his ex-girlfriend flooded social media with his nude photo.
It was gathered that the Nyatsungo allegedly sent a nude picture of his Cape Town based ex–side chick, Shingi Mavenge, to his other girlfriend only identified as Beula who later broadcasted it on social media.
According to H-Metro, in an apparent fit of rage, Mavenge posted a WhatsApp chat she had with Nyatsungo’s wife identified as Nyasha Nhahumbi as well as a group chat with some of her former lover’s concubines.
According to Mavenge, she has gotten information that Nyatsungo has at least 33 girlfriends and has ditched his wife of eight years.
She adds that Nyatsungo bedded a girl who was their neighbour as well.
Mavenge said that the church leader’s wife revealed that they even consulted their local pastor in Mutare who failed in his attempts to mend Nyatsungo’s ways.
According to H-Metro, Nyatsungo, a married father of two, has denied ever circulating the picture, labelling Mavenge as a bitter woman whom he just flirted with on Facebook and nothing more.
“This Nyasha guy must be stopped in his tracks. He is going to pay for all the damage that he has done to me. He was the only one who had that leaked picture and I am shocked why he would forward it to some other girl,” fumed Mavhenge who is working on taking legal action.
 
“I started dating this guy in 2015 and never knew he was married. He lied.”  fumed Mavenge yesterday.
“That guy is full of lies and at some point, we opened a group chat with his wife and some of his girlfriends. He normally targets single mothers” added Mavenge.
H-Metro was furnished with six other cellphone numbers of his girlfriend that include Fadzai, Mutsa, Essy, Juliana, Barbra among others. Mutsa confirmed she once had a relationship with Nyatsungo have since terminated it since she discovered he was married.
Mavenge confirmed they met once in Johannesburg when she had to fly from Cape Town to meet her man sometime in April.
“That night he didn’t even have money. I had to pay the R800 for the accommodation as he had no money. He wanted to have sex with me but I flatly refused. He even wanted it without protection and I said No. he looked terrible with clothes in a plastic shopping bag. I want to write a letter to Pastor Rex who is the head of (the church) in Harare so that this guy be stopped with his tricks and lies,” added Mavenge.
When contacted over the phone in Mutare Nyatsungo confirmed he knew Mavenge but never had a relationship with her.
“I know her and we once flirted on Facebook. We never had a relationship as she is alleging. I don’t know why she is bitter. I haven’t seen the nude pictures she is talking about but I heard about it from Beula. We live in a democratic country. She can go ahead and sue me if she feels her rights have been infringed upon. All the allegations she is making are false and I don’t know her motive in trying to tarnish my image,” said Nyatsungo.
He said he was still with his wife whose phone rang without response yesterday afternoon. Despite his denials, H-metro was furnished with pictures of Nyatsungo and Mavenge, the time they met in April.
