The gap widens

According to polling data, Hillary Clinton has received quite a bump in the polls following the first debate. Polling expert Nate Silver's Five Thirty Eight website has her numbers trending up.

Donald Trump must have visited Nate's site around 3a this morning, because around this time he began spewing some really vile things via Twitter (as he is prone to do at that hour).  How much scotch does one have to drink to drunkenly tweet such garbage.  Although, I'll give him this: there are hardly ever any real typos in his tweets, so those tiny fingers are pretty good at hitting the right keys on the keyboard (probably uses an iPhone - those keys are so small, they probably fit his finger size perfectly).

Donald Trump probably awakens hungover every morning and wants to apologize for his regularly scheduled 3a Twitter rants, but because of his tremendous ego (he has the best ego, an amazing ego), he can't bring himself to utter the words.  Or not, because in addition to a tremendous ego, he's also a tremendous asshole.
