Trump blamed Hillary for not single-handedly changing the tax code when she was a junior senator from New York.

CLINTON: Well, here we go again. I’ve been in favor of getting rid of carried interest for years, starting when I was a senator from New York. But that’s not the point here.

TRUMP: Why didn’t you do it? Why didn’t you do it?

CLINTON: Because I was a senator with a Republican president. I will be the president.

TRUMP: You could have done it if you were an effective; if you were an effective senator, could you have done it. But you were not an effective senator.


RADDATZ: Please allow her to respond. She didn’t interrupt you.

CLINTON: Under our Constitution, presidents have something called veto power.

This was a bizarre exchange. And not bizarre in the sense of the 2016 freak show focused on beauty queens and pussy grabbing and decades-old rape allegations. Bizarre in the sense that Trump, an actual major party nominee for president, appears to genuinely not understand why it is that Clinton, as a junior senator from New York, was not able to single-handedly overhaul the tax code.
