Just a few minutes into that 90-minute horror show by an American president, I could feel my heart pounding, I was trying to calm my thoughts down and my hand was on my chest. That is how something as routine and traditional as a Presidential Debate affected me for the first time, ever, last night. I managed (with great effort) not to turn off that annoying, interrupting man and watched the entire debate. I watched one man act calm, intelligent – the way someone acts when they want a particular job. I watched another man so out of control his face stayed sweat-drenched and who performed like an out of control toddler in serious need of a firm little smack on his bottom.
President or not, Trump should have been hauled off the stage after ten minutes by one of those long Vaudeville Hooks from cartoons we all watched in our youth. I wondered many times in those 90 minutes why his mic WAS NOT simply silenced once Chris Wallace had told the president to stop talking again, again and AGAIN.
Was that performance supposed to make anyone who loves America feel – in any way – good? I don’t think so. If he was courting votes, well perhaps he got a few from some deaf person who couldn’t here Trump’s long-winded screaming or read lips.
Notice here, that I am not using my regular handles for Trump – “little ‘djt'”, “hoople-head”, “empty suit”, etc. No. None of my usual silliness or humor. The reason being that this president, illegitimately elected, is no longer even worthy of being called any of those. No, he’s now just a run-of-the-mill embarrassment to America. Trump, being president, should have afforded me a reason to at least give a gussied up “run-of-the-mill”, but I have not an ounce of humor to waste on this man now. He’s too dangerous to the United States of America. Our beloved country.
He’s just a sad, pitiful man who thought he could successfully bring his bombastic, nasty ‘show’ to Washington, DC and get rave revues and lots of awards that in his eyes would be the equivalent of Emmy’s. The only thing he’s really acquired is a following of way less than 1/2 of Americans.
There was not one single candidate during the 2016 Republican primary that would have brought this utter shame on our country the way Donald J. Trump went for AND RECEIVED last night. I doubt that Trump got any new vote-yielding supporters to hop on his Halloween decorated train.
Donald Trump was rude, loud, obnoxious, insulting and forgot what a debate was.
He wasn’t smart, wasn’t calm, wasn’t helpful and, needless to say, certainly wasn’t ‘presidential’ last night.
