"Don't Ever Use the Word 'Smart' with Me"
The way that both Trump and Biden acted made me really angry. It didn’t even seem like a debate. Instead, I felt like I was watching the five-year-olds I babysit arguing over what time they’re gonna tell me their bedtime is. And these are our options for who is going to run our country for the next four years.. A racist, narcissistic, predator with unresolved childhood trauma that he takes out on an entire country or a predator that probably has dementia.
The way they both kept talking over each other and throwing petty insults. It’s sickening; these are the two people we have to choose between to run our country and they couldn’t even let the other person speak. I also found it really disgusting how Trump brought up Biden’s sons. No matter what, a person’s trauma is not there for you to exploit. Also, Biden saying, “shut up, man” and calling Trump a “clown” was very unprofessional, even if it did make me laugh. Another thing was that Trump kept calling Wallace by his first name which, although it wasn’t the worst thing that happened that night even by a long shot, it really did show how little respect he has for others.
One of the things that stood out to me was the fact that neither Trump nor Biden ever said the words “black lives matter”. The questions about race turned into an argument about law enforcement instead of them talking about the actual lives of black people who are dying. Not to mention Trump refusing to condemn white supremacy. As horrible as that is, though, it did not come as a surprise to me, which is extremely sad. But, if he did that, he would’ve probably lost the majority of his base. He doesn’t care about the lives that are being lost, all he cares about is himself.
After this debate, one thing that I cannot wrap my head around is the fact that there are so many people who are either undecided or have decided to not vote at all because of the whole “leftist purity” mindset. Yes, Biden is not the best option but he is all we have at this point. I don’t agree with him on a lot of points but at least he’s not a narcissist, right?
