Trump's Response to the Democratic Debate Is All of Us
On Wednesday night, Americans got to see the radical rush to the left on full display in the first 2020 Democratic presidential debate. Yet the first debate had serious technical issues and did not involve either of the two frontrunners, former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). President Donald Trump reviewed the debate with one word and slammed the "fake news" outlets organizing it.
"BORING!" the president tweeted a half hour in.
"[NBC News] and [MSNBC] should be ashamed of themselves for having such a horrible technical breakdown in the middle of the debate," Trump tweeted. "Truly unprofessional and only worthy of a FAKE NEWS Organization, which they are!"
Moving on from the debate, the president tweeted a video about his trip to visit U.S. troops in Alaska.
Then Trump decided to get silly. He tweeted a video showing "Trumpism" extending further and further into the future. It featured a TIME cover reading, "How Trumpism Outlasts Trump," with a series of yard signs reading "Trump 2024," "Trump 2028," and so on until "Trump 2048."
As the camera zooms in on the 2048 yard sign, the number grows bigger, leaping every four years to capture presidential election years. The pace speeds up as it passes 2100, and eventually it jumps to 10,000, 20,000, 30,000, and on to 90,000. Then "EEEEEE," then "4 EVA," and out.
Compared to the nonsense spouted from the stage at the Democratic debate this evening, Trumpism doesn't sound too bad, and the video becomes more hilarious as I think about it.
I don't always agree with the president, but I can't help getting a bit slap-happy after watching the horrendous Democrats go at it with one another. After all, a former HUD secretary pushed for biological men to get taxpayer-funded abortions, a New York mayor demonized private health insurance, and a senator chided a congresswoman for being insincere right after she supported one of his major legislative goals. Even the moderators couldn't get their mics right.
