Sometimes what happens in Vegas should really just stay in Vegas. 

When you thought things couldn’t get any stranger after Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump invited women who have accused former US President Bill Clinton of sexual assault to attend the second presidential debate against Hillary Clinton, think again.

Enter Malik Obama, President Barack Obama’s half-brother, who believes Trump can make America great again.

The spectacle of the final debate unfolded along the now-customary lines: Hillary hitting hard against Trump’s sexism and recent sexual assault accusations, his illogical rant against abortion, and describing his opponent as a “nasty woman” as the specter of Russian hackers and President Vladimir Putin lurked on the sidelines.

But then Trump refused to commit to accept election results, suggesting that he will keep us “in suspense” for the time being. What in effect is a denial of democracy itself became the final send-off into the November 8 election, after which we may well be referring to Donald Trump as supreme leader.
