West Seattle scene: Watching The Debate


6:39 PM: Admiral Bird is among the West Seattle spots where people are gathered right now to watch the first Hillary Clinton vs. Donald Trump presidential debate. From TV to YouTube to Twitter, in the words of one anchor, this might just be the “biggest electronic event in history.” It’s scheduled to continue until 7:30 our time; if you missed this one and want to see rounds 2 and 3 – here’s the schedule – October 9th and 19th, with the one and only VP debate on October 4th.

7:41 PM: Debate’s over. Just in case you weren’t watching it, but were wondering.

    A number of good points made, on both sides.   Obscured by what awful people they are, again on both sides.

    I thoroughly enjoyed walking my dog on this beautiful night and avoiding the bleepshow that our national politics has become.  I’ll be voting, but I’m pretty embarrassed for our country at the moment.

    Another debate in which the so called moderator couldn’t keep from becoming one of the debaters. I wish the they could be without moderators. I doubt many people  are familiar with the Lincoln/Douglas debates, but they were not scripted and the course of the debates was set by the two candidates. By the time they were concluded the nation knew exactly what was at stake.

    Huh. I thought Mr. Holt did a great job of moderating, given how often he was interrupted. And I was as impressed by Hillary Clinton as I was disappointed in the lack of content (and poor syntax) expressed by Donald Trump.

    Most people have a conscience & feel remorse if they tell even the smallest fib.  Which makes this fascinating (albeit scary) to witness one candidate who knowingly tells lies to the media, over & over, & without any hesitation or sign of guilt … there is no conscience!

    But to solicit charitable donations under the guise of the Trump Foundation & then use that money for personal paintings or donate that money as if it were his personal charitable donation … well again, fascinating that we are witnessing a serial liar & pathological egomaniac run for the White House.

    For those interested, a great article today in The Washington Post detailing how Donald Trump’s “Foundations” are really used.

Sorry, comment time is over.
