I have to give The Donald some credit. At least he’s consistent. And by consistent, I mean a complete and utter asshole. I mean, seriously. Last Tuesday’s presidential debate between the incumbent, President Donald Trump, and former Vice President Joe Biden was nothing less than a mess.
Earlier this month, the nation marked the nineteenth anniversary of the September 11, 2001, terror attacks with our usual solemnity, care, and grief.

My dear American friends, I must beg that you do not nominate Michael Bloomberg for the Democratic Party candidate for 2020. I know that the prospect of having a self-made businessman that deals with problems efficiently and without care for naive populism is attractive for many of you, but I can assure you that a Bloomberg presidency will bring you nothing but pain. I dare not repeat the common talking points regarding stop-and-frisk, Bloomberg’s senseless ad campaign, and charges of extreme sexism within his company. These are surface-level manifestations of Bloomberg’s sociopath at best.
It’s 2020, and although this may seem like another typical article regarding the presidential election, I can assure you that it is not. While watching the Democratic debate on February 19th, I managed to actually stay awake for the full two hours of the debate, a feat I am exceptionally proud of. I do not say this in such a way as to dismiss any of the candidates, but simply to say that I found this particular debate quite substantive and closely relevant to my personal concerns in the current political realm.
