EIC, The Bold Opinion
Disgraceful is an understatement.
Tonight, both Democratic Presidential nominee, Joe Biden and Republican Presidential nominee, Donald Trump squared off for their first face-to-face debate. This debate was, arguably, the most anticipated debate of modern American history. Why? Because the nation currently has a leader with a 56% national disapproval rating, according to a poll ending on September 19th.
However, tonight showed the world what it’s already known; the United States is in shambles. It was the icing on the cake!
I don’t know if I can communicate how utterly disgraceful tonight’s debate was and there, certainly, will be a host of mainstream media working overtime to break it down. It felt like a waste of time, in my opinion, so forgive me if the next few sentences seem “ranty”.
I don’t even know where to begin? The moderator, Chris Wallace, a renowned Fox News anchor, attempted to keep things on a script where both candidates were unwavering; Trump more sporadic and disrespectful than Biden. The two bickering back and forth like five-year-olds fighting over an action figure!
The debate was so all over the place that the only substance I could retain was something about electric cars and climate change, Coronavirus and the need to “not really wear a mask”, and Trump’s failure to 100% denounce white supremacy! No clear policies. No attempts to unite. No respect for the American people.
I will be replaying the debate in an attempt to soak up more content, but I sure hope that the Vice Presidential debate, and future debates, are easier for the World to digest.
My head hurts. Goodnight
