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.
