A debate that will live in infamy: That sweaty, red-faced liar is actually our president


A debate that will live in infamy: That sweaty, red-faced liar is actually our president
We already knew Trump was a national embarrassment. Did he think his sneering-bully act would win back voters?

(Salon) At the conclusion of the first debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden on Tuesday night, CNN's Dana Bash gave the best review of the proceedings: "That was a sh**show." Her colleague Jake Tapper who described it as "a hot mess inside a dumpster fire inside a train wreck. That was the worst debate I have ever seen. In fact, it wasn't a debate. It was a disgrace. It's primarily because of President Trump, who spent the entire time interrupting [and] lying." Or maybe Rachel Maddow's assessment on MSNBC a "monstrous cavalcade of increasingly wild and obscene lies" draws the most accurate picture of what went down in Cleveland on Tuesday night.

However you want to phrase it, a great truth was expressed by Wolf Blitzer when he opened his show:

I'd like to welcome viewers from here and around the world. Clearly this debate was an embarrassment for the United States ...


I would only add that it was an embarrassment entirely because of Donald Trump's sophomoric behavior, which was more befitting a nasty tween bully trying to shake someone down for his lunch money than the president of the United States. But then, why would we expect otherwise? The Donald Trump whom millions of people watched in horror as he lied, insulted, interrupted and acted like a barbaric brute is who he is virtually every day at his briefings, press avails, interviews and, most especially, the grotesque super-spreader events he calls campaign rallies. To expect him to behave with the decorum befitting the leader of the most powerful country in the world is absurd. He simply doesn't know how.

To the extent that he has ever cared about attracting back some of those "suburban housewives," as he likes to call them, this debate was a massive failure. His sweaty face and angry grimace formed the surreal picture of every woman's worst nightmare the domineering boss, the cruel boyfriend, the violent father, the abusive husband. He could not have done more to drive them away. .............(more)

1. "sweaty face and angry grimace formed the surreal picture of every woman's worst nightmare"

This scary monster also revealed that he is the head of a terror organization called (ironically) the "Proud Boys."

He's dead meat.
