From the September 27 edition of MSNBC's Live Post Debate:
BRIAN WILLIAMS: While we're having a moment, James Carville would like in. James, critique the job you just heard Kellyanne Conway doing, up against withering questioning from Chris Matthews.
JAMES CARVILLE: Well, look, I thought I was back watching Crossfire when I was on that. I mean look, she talked a lot and she has a difficult job. One point I wanted to make is so much of the Trump persona and so much of what he talks about is winning, and how he's a winner, and everybody's a loser.
And I think a lot of his supporters like -- take pride in the fact that he's such a winner, and he was anything but that tonight. And I wonder what the effect of this is going to be on the enthusiasm of his supporters, that he actually -- and he got beat by Hillary Clinton who to a lot of his people is evil incarnate, or is a weak person or something like that.
So, I -- this is kind of a unique thing where somebody whose whole branding is built around being a winner and he can win for the country really did -- lost so bad tonight. It's going to be curious to see how he carries that through. But I agree with Hugh, we got two more debates to come. She's going to take each one of these things deadly serious.
And Nicole, I bet you tomorrow that Roger Ailes gets out that he didn't have very much to do with preparation. I just bet you that the word comes out from Roger, “I didn't have anything to do with this, don't pin this on me.”
