Plenty were disgusted by Donald Trump’s suggestion that he and Hillary Clinton undergo drug tests before #DebateNight, which is a shame. Considering Clinton was hauled into her SUV and rushed to daughter Chelsea’s clinic just a month ago, she pulled off an amazing pivot for someone pushing 70. We’ll have whatever she’s having.
Everyone knew that WikiLeaks would make a cameo during the third debate, but so early? In a leaked speech, Clinton was quoted as saying she dreamed of “a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders.” Maybe if they’d charged admission to the debate she’d repeat it?

Hold tight; the Democrats are still trying to confirm that the leaked documents are even real, or if the Russians hacked into their servers just to steal documents to alter later.
Instead of responding to Chris Wallace's question about Open Borders, Hillary wants to talk about Vladimir Putin. #debatenight

Open borders question to Hillary, is that your dream? Script no 4: "We trade a lot of energy, energy grid, WIKILEAKS & RUSSIAN ESPIONAGE!"

Trump: Hillary wants open borders.
Hillary: No I don't!
Wallace: Here's your own statement calling for open borders.

Hillary's caught lying about open borders. Her explanation? Blame the Russians. Amazing double-talk! Slick Hillary. #debatenight

So are we not gonna go back to Hillary's support for "hemispheric open trade and borders"? We're just gonna let her brush it aside? #debate

Now Hillary claims open borders was about the electric grid – really Hillary? You couldn't use Abe Lincoln for that one? #debate

OMG HER EXCUSE. I CAN'T EVEN. (Side note– the mere mention of WikiLeaks gives her a case of the sweats.) https://t.co/NdZlkPYg4z

Hillary paid $225,000 by a Brazilian bank for a speech that called for "open borders". #BigLeagueTruth

Plenty of her fact checkers in the media tweeted their analysis of her remarks, questioning if she really was for open borders when she said she dreamed of open borders. She certainly appreciates the assist, but this is her last debate, too — why pivot rather than clear things up?
"Do you support open borders?"- Chris Wallace
"We must stop Russian espionage."-Hillary Clinton

Seeing as the debate’s in Vegas, it’s a good idea to look for each candidate’s “tell.”
Observation: Hillary uses "y'know" to pivot to memorized riffs she prepared in advance to insert into the debate
