One of the biggest headlines that came out following Saturday's DNC presidential debate in Manchester, New Hampshire was that Hillary Clinton was late getting back to the debate stage during a bathroom break.
Why are we even talking about this?
Pitch-hitting for Glenn on radio Monday, Buck Sexton shared his feelings on the matter.
"Places covered this as if this is something that needed to be covered because the debate was so boring and useless," Buck said. "That's right. You have major news outlets that are covering a potty break."

BUCK: One of the biggest headlines you see is that Hillary was late back to the debate stage. Then we find out it's because, you know, as one does during a debate, she had to have a bathroom break. And you could say, Buck, why are we talking about this? And that's a totally fair question. We're talking about it because the Boston Globe and many other places covered this as if this is something that needed to be covered because the debate was so boring and useless. That's right. You have major news outlets that are covering a potty break. What happened with this potty break? Why did the potty break go so long? Does anybody know how far away the potty was from the stage?
Ain't no potty like a Hillary debate potty because the Hillary debate potty is far away.
This is nonsense. And I'm reading this from the Boston Globe. They're talking about this. This is something we needed to know more about. We needed more coverage. That's how desperate they are for content though. This is the point. There's nothing else. The most exciting parts of this debate -- I already played for you the audio of Bernie saying, "Hillary, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to do it. You know, it was a staffer." And then also that she was late back to the stage because she went to the restroom. I mean, you can't make this stuff up.
It's like they did a count of how many times a candidate would cough or something because it's not supposed to be about substance. And everybody knows it. This gives Bernie a platform. All Hillary has to do is show up. Just sit there and be Hillary. And everyone goes, oh, she is so poised -- I also love the sort of after action reports you get: Oh, she's so poised. It's wonderful.
Then there's Martin O'Malley, standing there just being Martin. Just not really -- we're not sure why he's there. He's not sure why he's there. Does it matter? Nope, doesn't matter.
Hillary is going in with a huge lead. Hillary is the nominee. We know that much. And the media is already going to have to try to find ways to make this more interesting, I would think. Because even the scant coverage -- you'll notice not a lot of coverage of her. You'll notice the media wants to go wall-to-wall Trump all the time. Whether you're a Trump supporter or not, I'm just telling you, Democrat media, center left media, left left media, all Trump, all day, all the time. Part of that is ratings driven. But I think we should all be clear that only part of that is ratings driven.
They believe, those who will also stand behind Hillary and do whatever they can to push her presidency, that the more coverage of Trump in the long-term, the less likely that there will be a Republican sitting in the White House after the 2016 election.
