Watching Sunday’s debate was like swimming in the sewer

Watching the debate Sunday night was like taking a dip in the sewer. After watching it I could not sleep so I for one am done. I know that I am voting for Hillary Clinton so there is no benefit in watching this debate debacle. I don’t need to see a parade of “other women”. Since the Tiger Woods situation there has been an elevation of the other women. They have been portrayed a victims when they were really participants. These women like the Clinton women knew this man had a wife so they made a decision to have an affair with a married man, and Donald Trump attempted to smear Hillary Clinton for being on the attack mode toward women who sought to destroy her marriage. Really? No,this is too much for me and I like to swim in clean water.

Donald Trump finally insults the wrong people



Donald Trump insulted all of his GOP rivals and he was rewarded with the GOP nomination. He has insulted the disabled, the veterans, Gold Star families, pageant winners, immigrants and black people, but he has never apologized until now. He has finally insulted women–specifically white women, and he needs them if he ever expects to live in the White House. How can he survive this? How can they support him? He called it locker room banter, but most people would say it was just straight up nasty. Perhaps he has finally gone too far, but we have seen him rise from the ashes before and one has to wonder will he rise again.

Howard Dean tweets questioning whether Donald Trump is a coke user…have we entered the Twilight Zone?

This election will be remembered for many things and sadly few are good. At Monday night’s debate Donald Trump had the sniffles and Howard Dean tweeted a question asking if he was a coke user. No fact to substantiate the claim. Just putting it out there, but is it right. No it isn’t but look at the lies the Republicans have spread about Hillary Clinton’s health. They aren’t right either, but I guess this is the price we pay for living in a “fact free” zone.

Donald Trump and the Beauty Queen…was he completely wrong?

Donald Trump is known for saying controversial thing. At the debate Monday night Hillary Clinton asked him about Alicia Machado. She is the former Miss Universe who gained weight while she was wearing the crown. Donald Trump fat shamed her. He called her names he made her exercise in front of cameras, but have you ever seen a chunky beauty queen? No so Trump in this case was not off the rails. Part of committed to being Miss Universe is committing to not getting fat. it might not be a popular opinion but it is the truth.

Terrance Crutcher was not a “bad dude”

Terrance Crutcher was a man trying to get home and he didn’t. We heard police officers who were in a helicopter talk about how he looked like a “bad dude”. Why did they say that? He was a bad dude because he was big and black. His physicality is reason enough to classify him as bad. Crutcher is dead and now we are witnessing the demonizing of the victim. Shoot first and create the narrative to justify the killing. We have seen this play out before. Trayvon Martin , Eric Turner, Freddie Gray and now Terrance Crutcher. Sure they were killed but they were “bad dudes” and we have the post-mortem narratives to prove it.
