Post-debate commentary continues unabated. As expected, all those immediate online polls showed a triumphant Trump. Never mind that they are all manufactured by the trolls who planned to overwhelm them regardless of how their candidate actually fared during the debate.
Trump likes to tout those polls as genuine. Does he recall (well, I’m probably asking too much of him there) how Ron Paul always “won” those online polls after primary debates? If he doesn’t recall, perhaps he can ask President Paul about them.
More sober and realistic analysis reveals a rather widespread opinion that Trump fell apart during the last half of the debate; the perception is that he stumbled badly. For me, that was just Trump being Trump.
If you are a Trump supporter and depend upon Sean Hannity for analysis, you will be comforted that Trump accomplished his mission Monday night. The downside, of course, is that you will be residing in Trump/Hannity World where reality is somewhat skewed.
There are a number of comic strips I follow daily. One of them, Non Sequitur, can be annoyingly progressive at times, but can also occasionally zero in on the follies of our present age. Today’s strip achieves the latter:
Maybe you’ve heard the old cliché that in America anyone can grow up to be president. Sadly, we’ve now reached that point.
And as Forrest Gump so eloquently remarked, “That’s all I’ve got to say about that.”
