Just When You Thought 2020 Couldn’t Get any Weirder…
Just When You Thought 2020 Couldn’t Get any Weirder… by David Haggith for The Great Recession
The Vice President was upstaged by a tiny, little black fly that forced the VP debate to center on the one topic #pinkeyepence most wanted to avoid — his handling of the Covidcrisis. Chatter across the nation about the debate became all about Pence’s fly and his pink eye and … again … about how many times the Republican side can rudely interrupt when it’s not their time or turn to talk.
The dastardly duo just can’t seem to get it that playing the Interrupter-in-Chief or, now, the Mansplainer-in-Chief just annoys thinking people who actually want to hear each side explain itself.
Before pointing out the innumerable opportunities for humor this weirdest and wackiest of debates brought about due to details outside the debaters’ control, let me say “thank you” to patrons here who suffered through a difficult article about Trump, but point out, at the same time, recent articles that were just as strongly against those who have been unfair to Trump because what I care about is truth (and sometimes humor), not political parties, in the least, which I think cause more damage than good on both sides by constantly putting party over country:
I will continuing hitting fake news when it is wrongly against President Trump as I did at the start of Trump’s presidency with an article about the fake news coverage of Trump’s inauguration. I’ll also continue hitting the establishment that illegally attempted a soft coup against Trump because nothing is more dangerous to a democracy than a deep state that is out of control. And I’ll continue pounding on the Federal Reserve for its “feed the rich” welfare programs of fake economic recovery, and I’ll do all I can to beat up greedy banksters along our surreal path through the remainder of 2020, too.
But, along the way, one thing I will not do is protect your favorite politician, regardless of which side you are on. I realize we are in a time where everyone has lost their sense of humor about their own side, but last night’s debate was just too priceless to resist. So, please pass gas if you can’t take it, and wait for the next article to come out, which will move away from Trump and Company … if they’ll let me … and on to criticizing the foibles of the other side or the buffoonery of banksters.
The debate debacle
While I don’t like her liberal politics, I have to award the BLUE “winner of the debate” ribbon to Kamala Harris on her always courteous handling of #pinkeyeflyguy: (And, for the record, no I did not ever vote for Obama or Hillary Clinton or even Bill Clinton, so don’t even go there with lame counter-criticism. I did not vote for Trump either, but I did vote for Reagan twice and GWB once.)
