Well, the stakes just got real around here!
From the start, Hillary Clinton has vowed that if she got elected she would raise Donald Trump’s taxes. For a guy like Mr. Trump, there is no more terrifying threat. And for the good of American industry and freedom — as well as rich people like Mr. Trump — that should keep him up at night and laser-focused on winning this election.
In Sunday night’s debate, Mr. Trump raised the stakes to similar levels for Mrs. Clinton. If elected, he said, he would appoint a special prosecutor to investigate her disastrous and reckless handling of classified emails as secretary of state.
Just when you thought this campaign could not get any wilder.
Then Mr. Trump punctuated the threat as Mrs. Clinton prattled on about how unfit the real estate mogul is to hold the office she so desperately wants.
“It’s just awfully good,” she sing-songed, “that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country —”
“Because you’d be in jail,” Trump interjected with a vicious spear.
