HoDown in Hempstead!

NBC's Nightly News host Lester Holt moderates - and/or fact checks -  Monday night's most interesting thing on television tonight as Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump finally face off for the first time.

The debate is expected to have a large viewership, with an estimated 100 million potentially tuning in as the pair tackle issues like "America's Direction," "Achieving Prosperity' and "Securing America" on Monday, according to the Wall Street Journal. The debate takes place at Hempstead, New York's Hofstra University at 9 p.m. ET and can be watched on any major cable and broadcast network, including CNN, Fox News, ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC and C-SPAN. Monday Night Football is the only counter-programming, apparently.

Twitter will live stream and Facebook Live will carry ABC's live stream as well as various news networks' live broadcasts. YouTube will also have live streams from many organizations, including PBS, the Washington Post and Telemundo.

It's going to be split screen, not unlike a video game, so you can watch each of their reactions real-time.

Warning - if you're planning on making this a drinking game - YOU WILL DIE. So don't. Okay?

Over under on Hillary coughing to being able to stand for 90 whole minutes. Or you can play the Trump contradicting himself in 90 minutes, or just in his opening statement.

Winner? There are no winners. We're deciding between a shaved Orangutan with a Twitter account and Nixon/Burr with pearls.

Tell Me Lies, Tell Me Sweet Little Lies

George Washington had a famous story about cutting down a cherry tree and didn't lie to his father about it. Hillary Clinton denies ever having a cherry tree. It wasn't classified as a cherry tree. Maybe it was a peach tree? Obviously, there's a massive right wing conspiracy about trees ever being on her property. It's just a cough.
