The past two days have been dominated by the Clinton vs. Trump presidential debate. Today, the media spent the entire day talking about how the candidates looked or sounded during their “performance.” They said very little, if anything, of importance. I vowed not to reveal my personal preferences, but I can no longer keep it all to myself. Besides, neither of the candidates is that desirable. It’s an equal opportunity disdain.
Hillary looked like a robot/mannequin with a fresh haircut and an artistically painted younger face. Trump was making sniffing noises and he looked tired. The moderator, Lester Holt, just shuffled his notes around and tried to get in between the candidates, to no avail.
Hillary’s supporters have it in their heads that the presidency is the “prize” that she has to “win” at any cost. At this point, she will say ANYTHING to win. Since she has worked so hard for this prize, she feels she deserves it. She feels entitled because it is “her time.” Hillary is a career politician. If she loses the prize, she has nothing to go back to except old Bill; because this is her whole life. I feel sorry for her. She’s old, bitter and unhappy and she brought it all on herself. I would love to see a woman in the White House. I just want a different woman.
Trump has a perfectly lovely life to go back to. He has generously offered his expertise to help get this country going again, but he is tired of being abused by Hillary and the media. He can win if he wants to, but his attitude will have the greatest influence on his future.
In my opinion: Clinton looked a lot better. When Trump attempted to defend himself, she just kept talking, completely unruffled. Her debate experience definitely showed. She was full of statistics, whether or not they were factual, and she presented them as though they were facts. She is an accomplished liar. I’ve known a lot of compulsive liars and it always comes from insecurity. That’s NOT a leader because they can’t make decisions without worrying about what people are going to think of them.
Trump doesn’t care that much about what anyone thinks. Even his wife says he does whatever he wants, no matter what anyone thinks. Trump still has a lot of work to do. His performance was not very impressive. I’m sure he didn’t lose any supporters, but probably didn’t gain any either.
Trump is no dummy. He is a fast learner and is probably already working on his new strategy. Hillary gave us her very best last night and Trump gave us very little. So, the next debate will be an uphill battle. Hillary would be running away with the victory, if not for Trump. None of the other potential candidates would have been able to get this close to her. But all-in-all, she is still a terrible choice.
