Trump holds a rally in Florida, where he declares himself to be the winner of the debate, while many of his logic-challenged supporters outside wholeheartedly agree with the idea that he would make a better leader than Hillary Clinton, while screaming at reporters to leave. Lovely.

Joe Biden slams Trump’s debate performance, stating that it takes a terrible person to enjoy profiting off the misery of others, referencing Trump’s pride in not paying taxes and taking advantage of a collapsing housing market.

President Obama gives a phone interview stating that the options are very clear, as Clinton has the temperament and experience to do the job, while “the other guy” obviously doesn’t. It appears Obama is so sick of Trump he can’t even bear to mention his name yet again, and it’s hard to blame him.

And Hillary, all smiles, is asked about Trump’s claim that his microphone wasn’t working well (sounded fine to viewers at home!), to which she says he must have been having a bad night if that’s what he blames his performance on.

Calm and experienced Hillary Clinton goes head-to-head with flustered, ill-prepared Donald Trump at the first presidential nominee debates, and it goes just as badly for Trump as you could expect.

An overwhelmed Trump reveals his emotions in his wild facial expressions and can’t seem to drink enough water as he twists in discomfort, while Hillary displays the poker-faced stoicism she’s learned to use in the face of sexism and absurdity for over 40 years.

As Trump’s performance is rightfully panned by most viewers and critics, Gary Johnson shows up at Hoftra University to mope about how he doesn’t get to join the debate.

Donald Trump continues his depressing rust belt rallies for bitter white folk, this time stopping in Pennsylvania to let them know that our country “looks bad to the world” and that we can’t be good world leaders if we can’t even control our own cities during riots. Ah, Trump, an iron fist with baby fingers that only Vladimir Putin could love!

Hillary Clinton visits the Between Two Ferns show, hosted by Zach Galifianakis, where Zach awkwardly peppers her with questions about her duties as “secretary” and how Obama likes his coffee. People who don’t understand satire, AKA Republicans, were quick to point out how weird she is and how bad the interview went, because apparently it never occurs to them that Hillary might be in on the joke and have a sense of humor.

Hillary also switches into anger mode, when she joined a video conference for a labor union and demanded to know why she’s not 50 points ahead of this con-man, and how we need to get Trump’s horrible record out there. Hard to argue with there.

And Trump’s Las Vegas hotel workers are protesting and demanding benefits equal to that of other hotels – something he has denied them as he underpays them and forbids a union.

Hillary Clinton reacts to the recent shootings of unarmed black men in Oklahoma and North Carolina, calling the trend “unbearable” while stating the need for respect between police and the communities they serve.

Donald Trump also reflected on the recent shootings, saying that the cop responsible for Terence Crutcher’s death was perhaps too scared or choked on the job. He then went on to say (at an “African American town hall meeting” no less) that his big plan to stop “black on black” crime is to institute more stop & frisk practices, because it worked out so well in New York City.

Donald Trump stops in North Carolina to shamelessly pander to low-information voters, who eat it up like a starving cat would devour a rodent. Using the classic Pee-Wee defense of “I know you are but what am I,” which seems to be a mainstay of his campaign, Trump says it is actually Hillary who is giving aid and comfort to ISIS through divisive hate speech.

President Obama makes his final speech at the United Nations, urging countries to not allow religious extremism or ethnic conflicts to lead to war, while also subtly throwing Trump some shade by noting that countries that surround themselves with walls only imprison themselves.

Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway and VP pick Mike Pence make the cable news rounds to defend allegations against improper spending within the Trump Foundation, who similarly employ the Pee-Wee defense, with Conway even accusing a CNN host of “making things up.”

After years of swearing up and down that President Obama isn’t American, Donald Trump finally says that Barack Obama was, in fact, born exactly where he says he was. Trump, of course, fully expects this to be enough of an explanation and says now the issue is done and it’s time to move on to making America great again.

Bernie Sanders says the problem with Trump’s latest admission is that if Trump really believed it, he’s gullible (Bernie is too nice to call him an idiot), or that he never believed it but chose to prey on people’s fears – either way, it’s not acceptable and not only does he owe the President and the American people an apology, but that he simply must not become president.

Gary Johnson thinks he should definitely be invited to the Presidential debates, since he thinks so many people are unhappy with Trump and Clinton – pointing out that he’s the “other choice.” Way to sell yourself, Gary!

And an exhausted President Obama says he can’t believe he’s still talking about this whole birther thing 8 years later, because he’s pretty confident that he knows exactly where he was born.

Hillary Clinton bounces back and returns to the campaign trail after taking fewer than two full days off to rest. She admits she hates to stay down but that it did help her feel better and take time to reflect away from the constant travel that comes with campaigning.

Donald Trump is still bumbling around the campaign trail as well (because evil never sleeps?) making another stop in New Hampshire and declaring he’s too cool to wait for the press to arrive, even though they asked him to wait. The crowd thinks this is very cool and outsider-y of him and cheers wildly.

Bill Clinton stops by The Daily Show to inject a little sanity into all this mess, pointing out that Trump’s fan base is made up of people who grew up like him. It remains to be seen whether Bill’s appeal to the public for thinking reasonably will work.

And in what can only be described as a win for talk show hosts, George W. Bush is still talking in public this week; this time to dedicate a Texas elementary school named after him.

Trump also makes the talk show rounds and stops to chat with Dr. Oz – another folksy outsider who enjoys the fandom of lazy thinkers – to discuss his great health. When asked by Dr. Oz why he won’t just release his records, the masterful Donald, like some sort of Republican Cheeto Houdini, quips that he actually has them RIGHT HERE in his pocket!

While Hillary Clinton takes one day off from the last year of campaigning for the great sin of being sick, it’s been a major campaign week for everyone else. Trump beats his old drum about how Hillary only cares about special interests and elites, positioning himself as the only real leader for regular working folk, while Pence continues to fake being shocked that Hillary would call the hateful people who see Trump as their savior ‘deplorable.’

Aside from the usuals, the campaign trail also sees the appearance of President Obama, Bill Clinton, Chelsea Clinton, and even Ivanka Trump, out to stump for their respective candidates. Ivanka does her best beauty queen Q&A impersonation by talking vaguely about working mothers and childcare, while Bill Clinton and Obama have a great time tearing up Trump and his ridiculous hypocrisy.

Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway seems to be in a bad mood. Normally the polar-opposite of Trump, with her eerie, Stepford-wife calmness about her, the poor woman may have finally started to crack under the pressure of having to defend her boss from his stupid words every single day. In the same interview, she at once calls for Hillary to be more transparent about her health, then demands to know why Trump should release his tax returns, claiming it to be an invasion of privacy.

Donald Trump and Mike Pence engage in some truly masterful, totally twisted logic, insisting that it’s actually Hillary who is the hateful, divisive candidate in this race! They even go so far as to say they are SHOCKED at Hillary’s supposed “low opinion” of the American public, and that no one has ever heard anything like it. Trump and Pence are apparently counting on voters to have the memory of a goldfish, forgetting every hateful thing that’s come out of Trump’s mouth for the last year with near-daily consistency.

Charlie Rose interviews Bill Clinton and gives him the chance to explain Hillary’s supposed health scandal and any possible improprieties conducted within the Clinton Foundation. Bill laughs at the idea that Hillary would stay down for more than a day, insisting that she is a hard worker with no history of State Department special favors through the Foundation.

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus says that liberals are a bunch of high dollar golf-clappers who enjoy a good laugh at the expense of the hard-working American regular guy. He goes on to accuse Hillary of being hypocritical… because liberals preach tolerance but are not tolerant of racist, right-wing looney-tunes opinions. Somehow he fails to see the stupidity in saying people should be tolerant of intolerance.

Sad sack Libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson has made the biggest headlines in his entire political career so far – not because he has any decent ideas, but for not knowing Aleppo, the epicenter of the Syrian war crisis. Caught dumb-handed, Gary says he’s going to try to make lemonade out of the situation, but concludes if this gaffe is the end of him (not that he ever had a beginning), so be it.

RNC chairman Reince Priebus says Hillary Clinton did not smile enough while talking about dead Syrians during the first televised meeting of both Trump and Clinton at the Commander-in-Chief forum. Hillary responds by saying the obvious: that is, Syria is too serious of a crisis to smile over; then suggests that maybe Trump was smiling enough for RNC tastes while gushing about his love for Russian president Vladimir Putin.

Donald Trump had a spectacular phone interview with Larry King, if your definition of spectacular is sounding like a grade-A idiot. When Larry King points out Trump’s “secret plan” to defeat ISIS is reminiscent of when Nixon wouldn’t reveal his secret plans for Vietnam, Trump seems to audibly shrug over the phone and declare “I don’t like to talk about it” before disappearing for good – leaving Larry King with DEAD SILENCE when asked about his true feelings on Mexican immigrants.

And a clearly done-with-all-this President Obama says Philippine president Duterte’s rude comments don’t bother him at all, since presumably A) Obama has dealt with worse for the last 7 years, and B) Duterte says the same thing about the Pope, so it’s probably just how he always talks.

Matt Lauer stumbled through the televised presidential nominee forum with the grace of a construction worker in a ballet class, asking Hillary heavy questions that required thorough answers, then interrupting her every chance he got. Lauer also allowed Trump to ramble as he pleased and did not bother to correct him on his proven lies, continuing the modern tradition of allowing Trump to get away with anything he wants to say in the media.

Hillary again stood firm on the email “scandal,” saying she knows perfectly well how to handle classified information and that she was careful to use the right servers for them. Meanwhile, Trump hammered home the idea that Obama is a super terrible president, and that he’d do a much better job because Putin praises him so much.

Obama wearily repeated himself during a press conference, in which he again declared Trump totally unqualified to be president, adding the hope he maintains that voters will actually listen to what he says and examine his record before voting for him. Somehow, Obama manages to find a shred of optimism after all this time.

And Newt Gingrich called into Sean Hannity to join the chorus of conservative voices who have decided Hillary’s health should be the next manufactured scandal. Right on cue, Newt himself descended into his own coughing fit, right in the middle of criticizing Hillary for having one earlier in the week. At least irony isn’t dead in 2016.

Donald Trump still hasn’t dropped out of this thing and yelled the word “SIKE” yet, so the cable news media faithfully continues to cover him every single day. And a funny thing about Donald – not only does he find two thirds of his wives in eastern Europe, he also thinks it’s a good place to find a new superpower BFF for the United States! Trump goes so far as to wonder aloud, “wouldn’t it be nice” to buddy up to Russia so we can defeat ISIS together? What a thoughtful guy.

Hillary Clinton points out the absurdity of Trump’s middle east plan (or lackthereof), including his inability to grasp basic war strategies, such the ability to understand maps. She notes that Trump is so far gone that he actually thinks giving Syria to ISIS as a “free zone” to do whatever they want with constitutes a good solution.

Tim Kaine points out Trump’s hypocrisy in trash talking our military – including picking fights with John McCain and Gold Star families – noting that Trump seems to have a bizarre fascination with authoritarian leaders.

Soledad O’Brien gives CNN an earful about the amount of air time given to Donald Trump and his fans vs. Hillary Clinton or any other candidate, stating that so much Trump coverage is actually normalizing white supremacy in our society again.

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump both stopped in Ohio, inviting journalists on-board their planes, where Hillary answered a wide array of questions in depth while Trump said as little as possible and let Mike Pence do a lot of talking for him. Hillary is glad to explain the email “scandal” with extreme patience yet again, while Trump takes an interview with a journalist at an Ohio fair and spends all of 25 seconds shouting to a crowd about how he’ll bring jobs back to Ohio.

President Obama exercises an impressive level of patience himself as he deals with China’s inability to greet a foreign dignitary properly at the airport, as well an incredible amount of restraint when responding to Philippine President Duterte’s remarks about how he’ll cuss Obama out if he dares to ask about all the murders going on under Duterte’s regime.

Duterte exposes himself as more psycho and disgusting by the day as more is revealed about him to the American public. Not only did he just declare he’d cuss out Obama if asked about the thousands of extrajudicial killings so far this year, he also laments the fact that he didn’t get the first chance at a “beautiful” rape and murder victim who was killed in his hometown in 1989. Yes, he actually said that.
