Is this the best that Reality TV can produce? Two distant cousins find themselves in a shadow’s eye of winning the United States presidential election of 2016. As if all other presidents weren’t related, we roll ignorantly with this statutory form of enchantment because the American public wants to see a piece of themselves possessing some form of control in their lives. Really?
Well drama occurred even before the debate began as CNN reported that “Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein was escorted off the Hofstra University campus Monday after her prearranged media interviews because she didn’t have credentials to be there.” The article goes on to explain how shortly after the MSNBC interview, Stein was escorted off the Hofstra University‘s grounds, the location of the debate, by Nassau County Police. Meanwhile, the “educated” and “conscious” America is not even aware of Presidential candidates outside of what is reported by mainstream media. This is a Clinton scheme that was an adopted strategy of President Obama.
Back in 2012, former Texas Congressman Ron Paul could have easily defeated Barack Obama, if people actually could hear what the man had to say. Instead, Obama chose his opponent, Mitt Romney, by having the media downplay Ron Paul’s credentials. while choosing to respond only to Romney. Surprisely, Obama’s pitbull, the then not so shriveled up Al Sharpton actually came out to divert the Ron Paul movement on national television. Now Hillary is using President Obama’s blueprint to win the presidency. It’s the same thing all over again and the American people are guinea pigs.
This time it’s Hillary Clinton who chose her opponent, Donald Trump, a one time contributor to the Clinton Foundation. While Trump spews a lot more bravado than Romney, they are basically cut from the same cloth, wealthy businessmen who believe that their experience will help create jobs in America. Clinton then moves forward and devalues Bernie Sander‘s credentials in the same fashion that Obama did Ron Paul. It’s the same thing!
One voice of reason and gentleman first-class is Lester Holt. He was a perfect host for this third-world fiasco and kept things in order. While some readers may have chuckled at my initial comparison of Hillary Clinton and Mary J. Blige, if you look at Clinton’s response to Holt’s first question it is easy to see that she is looking for Real Love:
Lester Holt: Beginning with you, Secretary Clinton, why are you a better choice than your opponent to create the kinds of jobs that will put more money into the pockets of American works?
Hillary Clinton: Well, thank you, Lester, and thanks to Hofstra for hosting us. The central question in this election is really what kind of country we want to be and what kind of future we’ll build together. Today is my granddaughter’s second birthday, so I think about this a lot. First, we have to build an economy that works for everyone, not just those at the top. That means we need new jobs, good jobs, with rising incomes.
In the same way that Hillary won America’s heart by gaining sympathy for being in a bad marriage, she again calls for a “real love” in citing her granddaughter. On a certain level she disrespected Holt by rephrasing his question, instead of answering it; “The central question in this election is really what kind of country we want to be and what kind of future we’ll build together.” I beginning to think that the bi-polar slang used by Clinton is really something to be desired even before we get into Trump. Here is another question proposed by Holt:
Lester Holt: Secretary Clinton, last week, you said we’ve got to do everything possible to improve policing, to go right at implicit bias. Do you believe that police are implicitly biased against black people?
Hillary Clinton: Lester, I think implicit bias is a problem for everyone, not just police. I think, unfortunately, too many of us in our great country jump to conclusions about each other. And therefore, I think we need all of us to be asking hard questions about, you know, why am I feeling this way?
Ironically, not only was Donald Trump the politician that brought da rukus, he summed up all political life in a minority world in his response:
Lester Holt: Please respond, then I’ve got a quick follow-up for you.
Donald Trump: I will. Look, the African-American community has been let down by our politicians. They talk good around election time, like right now, and after the election, they said, see ya later, I’ll see you in four years.
Unfortunately, anytime an issue of “race” comes up in America, the finger always points at African-Americans and Latinos. when there is more to discuss than just two groups in America. Asians, Irish, Italians, Jews, East Indians, Amerindians, Tibetans, and many other groups are subject to racial discrimination in America. But all of this just shoes us the two block radius these two candidates are standing! Hands down, the first debate was a fixed tie!
