I was taught very early in my life that you never debate a fool which sure could have been the mantra last night at the final presidential debate. Of the many ridicules claims this fool has made was the one where Trump claimed the black people of Detroit, Chicago, and Philadelphia are rigging the election.
Dude most black folk don’t want to vote for you or anyone else because we know regardless who is elected “we will get no more than we always got.”
Yes, Clinton presented a dark, divisive vision that threatens the character of his version for America. When you think of his most dangerous person to run for president in modern history; it is Trump and I tend to agree! Trump has demeaned and insulted every category of people in the country, and they call him a patriot because he promised to take back “their” country. But low and behold when he showed himself to be a pervert and his history of sexually assaulting white women – all things changed. His campaign had spiraled downward since the first debate seeming to hit a low point following a string of recent accusations of sexual assault.
Trump dismissed the sexual assault allegations as he has done say “It was lies, and it was fiction… Nobody has more respect for women than I do.” It was a fitting debate’s setting, Las Vegas, seemed the perfect place for an election defined by a raucous, carnival-like and at times grotesque atmosphere suited of a con-man.
The clashes came late in a debate that began on its most substantive note yet – with the candidates, both subdued, elaborating on clear differences on abortion, gun laws, and immigration. In my view, he lost on each point! But the battle turned harder-edged as the night went on. At one point Trump interrupted Clinton, spitting out, “Such a nasty woman.” That alone is un-American – insulting a white woman!
Indeed, the most memorable moment came debate was when the moderator asked whether he would accept the election’s results he said, “I will tell you at the time… I am going to leave the country in suspense.” When suggesting that he might defy long-standing tradition and extend the rancor of a divisive election year.
To most this was a horrifying and absurd comment, which drew a sharp repute accusing Trump of denigrating American democracy – “We’ve been around for 240 years, we’ve had free and fair elections, we’ve accepted the outcomes when we may not have liked them, and that is what must be expected of anyone standing on a debate stage during a general election.”
More disgusting in than Trump himself is the long list of segregates that spew out the most insane misogyny and defend his bigotry. It looks like the KKK is the big loser in him losing! And that’s my thought provoking perspective…
