Hillary Clinton’s jokes need work. “Trumped-up trickle-down” is not exactly a knee-slapper. But she’s always been known for her laugh, and she’s putting it to good use tonight, showing she takes her opponent exactly as seriously as he deserves.
Witness her reaction to Trump’s bizarre claim that by putting forth a plan to defeat ISIS (something Trump has failed to do), she’s tipping off the enemy. “No, we’re not,” she said, grinning widely as though amused by her opponent’s sheer incompetence. It remains to be seen whether the American people will laugh along with her, but she’s certainly treating Trump like the joke he is.
