Why are all these people in the debate hall?

This is so fucking stupid.

The Biden/Bernie debate had no one in the gallery and it was fine.

1. I don't get it.

Why would anyone even travel to be there?

5. It's a townhall format. They take questions from the audience.

10. Michael Beschloss said that even JFK/Nixon had virtual debates, they were on separate coasts

And he mentioned that the technology is much better now...

yawning in the front row of the upper gallery, with his mask pulled down.

9. It's Utah

Lived there almost 70 years.

Other than SLC, Park City & Moab they are right wing, religious fools. I blame the Mormon church for most of the bass-ackward thinking.

I left 6 years ago, & while I'm here now to see siblings & daughters, grand kids & great, it is always a relief to get out of this regressive, foolish state.

It is so wonderful to get to Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, New Mexico, Nevada, Arizona, California, Oregon & Washington, where they treat you like an ADULT, not some misguided child.

Just try & tell them something that their "prophets" have railed against. It's worse than beating you head against a wall.

I'm glad to be gone.

P.S.
Live in a motorhome, all over the map constantly.
