TRUMPED: Befuddled Hillary Clinton Begs Big Money Donors for Advice on Debating Donald Trump

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is having so much trouble coming up with a debate strategy against her rival, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, that she begged big money donors at a fundraiser in the Hamptons on Monday for advice on how to deal with Trump at the upcoming presidential debates.

The media, which had a virtual blackout on Clinton’s fundraisers on Sunday in the Hamptons, is reporting on Clinton’s Monday fundraisers also in the Hamptons. Clinton is staging a three day fundraising blitz in the Long Island playground of the New York business and entertainment elite.

Hillary Clinton departs Hamptons fundraising event on Sunday.

“I want any of your thoughts or ideas about how I should debate Donald Trump, just to name one thing. 71 days left in the campaign and I am not taking anything, anyone or any place for granted. This is the most unpredictable electoral season that I certainly can remember and I am running against someone who will say or do anything.”

“And who knows what that might be. We have three debates. The first one is in September…I do not know which Donald Trump will show up.”

“Maybe he will try to be presidential and try to convey a gravity that he hasn’t done before or he will come in and try to insult and try to score some points.”

“Somebody said to be, remember, there will be about 100 million people watching and 60 million will be paying attention to the campaign for the first time. So don;t assume they have followed anything. They may vaguely have some information about Trump said this or Trump said that or whatever. But there will be a lot of new impressions made that night.”

Pool transcript posted by CNN’s Dan Merica.

“At a fundraiser today in the Hamptons, Hillary Clinton solicited suggestions about how to debate Trump. Full:”

Merica reported the remarks were made at the home of a former Wall Street executive, Charles Phillips.

“Hillary Clinton has arrived at her second fundraiser of the day, an event at the East Hampton home of Karen and Charles Phillips.”

“Charles Phillips, CEO of InFor, a financial systems software company, used to be a director at Morgan Stanley.”

There was no report on any debate advice given by Clinton’s donors at the fundraiser. The event was closed to the press, however Merica reported the press pool holding outside were able to hear Clinton’s remarks.
