Sure, Donald Trump is a lot like your racist uncle, but it seems he’s also a lot like the obnoxious bully who would sit in the back of the class to avoid getting called on.
The Washington Post reports that on how differently Clinton and Trump are preparing for the first presidential debate, and their strategies are precisely what you might think: Hillary is taking copious notes and studying, whereas Donald is just saying he’ll “wing it.”
Clinton is reportedly pursuing policy and opposition research, and constantly preparing to get ready. Her debate team consists of a mix of academics and veteran Clinton advisers, but they haven’t said who will play trump in practice debates. (This writer/comedian has been impersonating Trump, so maybe I can do it?)
In short, the Clinton team says that Hillary is approaching the debates like a series of job interviews with the American electorate in which she aims to come across as the sober and serious alternative to Trump. She is hyper-preparing, in fact.
Meanwhile, Trump has absolutely no debate team. Maybe it’s because he hears voices and these voices already tell him he’s the best. But really, forgoing study to ride on his insults and rhetoric.

What preparation he is doing, at least right now, consists of hosting Sunday get-togethers with friends, advisors, and family members to test pitches and zingers over cheeseburgers and sodas. Among those who attended last week’s meeting at the Trump National Golf Club in New Jersey, according to the Post, were former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani, former Fox News chair Roger Ailes, conservative talk-show host Laura Ingraham, Trump’s daughter and son-in-law, campaign manager Kellyanne Conway, campaign chief executive Stephen Bannon, and communications advisor Jason Miller.
Trump is like the jock who doesn’t study and shows up late to the test. That’s going to end badly for him.
