I’ll have to admit I found some moments in the debate when I was laughing out loud. I’m biased because for over 100 days there has been a real street fight in Portland. I’m not going to get all choked up about what I saw in Cleveland.
Trump is a brawler. Joe Biden is like the crazy uncle that had too much too drink at a wedding. He gets pulled over, slurs his words, and then squints when he looks at the cop when he’s asked to take a field sobriety test.
In a better world we would all have a cup of tea, holding the cup with the little finger extended, not the middle finger, discussing politics. Well we don’t live in that world right now.
My wife and I lived in pre-Giuliana Queens, NY. To afford a house in the 1970s in Queens you would have to work three jobs. We decided to go back to the West Coast because we weren’t going to send our future children to P.S. 189. We left before it was fashionable to leave Queens.
Yes, Trump is rude, but until you’ve been in a bar in Manhattan at 0400 hours then rude is rather subjective. New Yorkers live in a world where prolonged eye contact with someone you don’t know can be problematic. That is not much different than Joe Biden’s beloved Scranton, PA. Joe is living in memories that are a bit distorted due to the onset of dementia.
I’m not looking for daddy in this election, but I’m not looking for a crazy uncle whose neurons are looking for a landing strip. I wasn’t too upset about what I saw in Cleveland during the debate, I’ve seen a lot worse on the streets.Published in
