Shelter-in-Place Journal, Day 197

We watched the “debate” tonight.

I wasn’t surprised to see Trump refusing to let Biden speak without interruption and ignoring the moderator’s attempts to reel him in. I wasn’t surprised to see him dodge questions and lie whenever he could. I wasn’t surprised to hear him bring in his favorite stories (like the leader of an unnamed nation with “forest cities” calling him “Sir”). I wasn’t surprised to hear him condemn Democrats at almost every opportunity (he did claim to get along well with California Governor Newsom while blaming him for the fires here).

But I was shocked when he didn’t take the softball that Chris Wallace threw him asking him to condemn a White Supremacist group (I won’t name them), instead telling them to “stand by”. Not surprised – Trump is who he is – but shocked that he couldn’t manage to dissemble for just a little bit and look just slightly less racist.

Vote Biden. Vote Democratic all the way.

And in the meantime, please stay sane. Here’s a short video from the Oregon Zoo that might help.

  1. Here on the Oregon coast, we chose not to watch it, although we recorded it to watch at home later. But this morning over coffee, or reading all the highlights in watching Colbert.
