The Debate: To Watch or Not to Watch—It’s Not Even a Question

Last night was the first of the 2020 presidential debates between Joe Biden and the current occupant of the White House. Studly Doright asked if I wanted to watch the event and I thought about it for all of two seconds before saying, “No!”

This will be the first time in many years that I refuse to watch a presidential debate. In 2016 I watched Trump boorishly looming over Hillary Clinton while he lied through his teeth. While she handled the whole intimidation attempt beautifully, I did not. It made me sick to my stomach, and I didn’t sleep at all afterwards.

Trump represents the worst mankind has to offer. He is without honor, solely interested in enriching himself, and maybe his family if their interests happen to align with his own. And he will say anything, do anything, to screw over the little guy in his quest for the almighty dollar.

What did we do instead of watching the debate? We watched Dexter on Netflix. Yes, I’d rather watch a serial killer killing other serial killers than watch Trump bloviate ad nauseam.


Peace, people!

      1. I’m pretty sure my husband voted for Trump in 2016, and that caused some HUGE issues in our relationship. I told him then that with trump at the helm it was likely we’d never see another Democratic President in our lifetimes. Trump will do anything to stay in power.


  1. We decided not to watch the debate – watched two reruns of Hawaii Life instead – curiosity got the best of us so we turned the channel to the debate – watched about 60 seconds -it was more than we could take – turned the channel again watched a rerun of Golden Girls then went to bed. All the reviews I have been reading this morning about the debate confirms what a fiasco it was and so glad we did not put ourselves through that torture! Watching reruns of outrageously priced homes and spirited older women was much more satisfying.

  2. It was like watching a train wreck and being unable to look away because what you are seeing is so utterly horrifying it is impossible to believe it is real. My daughter watched with us and I think she is now scarred for life.
