THE FINAL PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE. Watch the third debate between Clinton and Trump–LIVE at 9 PM EST– HERE.
BYE, FELICIA. Some of Trump’s closest supporters and confidantes reportedly abandoning him: “Donald Trump and Roger Ailes are no longer on speaking terms, according to reports out Wednesday. After appearing many times as a surrogate, policy creator, and defender, Ivanka Trump is now distancing herself from the campaign, insisting she’s just her father’s daughter, and not a surrogate or campaign mastermind. Chris Christie too is distancing himself from Trump. Newt Gingrich has been MIA for a while, calling Trump recently “pathetic.” And even Howard Stern says he’s never heard talk like Trump’s in the locker room.”
DEBATE NIGHT. Sarah Palin will be Trump’s guest.
So: Trump source tells me @SarahPalinUSA is an invited guest to tonight's #debate.

EMINEM. Marshall Mathers releases new track slamming Trump: “You say Trump don’t kiss ass like a puppet?/ ‘Cause he runs his campaign with his own cash for the funding?/ And that’s what you wanted?/ A f**in’ loose cannon who’s blunt with his hand on the button/ Who doesn’t have to answer to no one?/ Great idea!”
IT’S THE ECONOMY, STUPID. Tim Kaine explains why fighting poverty is good for the economy: “Fighting povery is really a growth strategy. It’s a competitiveness strategy. But it’s also a moral responsibility. And it’s gonna be a defining mission of a Clinton-Kaine administration.”
