Staff Picks: Who won the Presidential Debate?
Avery Olson: Who won the debate? Did anyone? After eliminating the zodiac killer and throw-money-towards-colleges Sanders, here we stand. When looking at the two, Hillary and Donald, (Yes, we’re on first name basis) we pick apart the pros and cons between both but looking at all of America… How the heck did we narrow it down to these two hypocrites. Right now media is more focused on making memes out of them than what’s best for us. Is this the future I’m supposed to look forward too?
Kyra Welker: I don’t recall watching a Presidential Debate, rather, I watched two grown children quarrel on live television. The majority of the time I truly believed I was watching a comedy show, but in reality these two, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, will have their names printed on every ballot across the United States by November. Thank you America for keeping these two in the running to lead our country. Instead… #FeelTheJohnson (Gary Johnson), and maybe then we could have a president who could lead us like a mature adult.
Jacob Smith: In God we DO NOT trust either candidate for president. This debate was pointless, and didn’t get me to lean either way. A debate is not supposed to be a roast, a debate is supposed to be an intellectual confrontation between two adults, not immature children yelling back and forth. Politicians were always thought of as noble people, with values. But this has taken a lot away from the title of being a politician. We need a real leader again. Trudeau, 2016.
Pablo Orta: Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump get lost on a deserted island, who stays safe? America!!! I’m glad I ended up having to work so I could avoid watching this whole debate; because after the first thirty minutes of what I would consider to be childish bickering, I lost complete faith in the future of America. I’d rather have Gary Busey as president than have to pick one of these two oafs.
Mey Tuinei: Who won the presidential debate? Those of us who kept the television shut off. To be capable of leading a country, being civilized role models is a given. Social media and these debates perceive Hilary and Donald to be the complete opposite. I stopped caring about the election a long time ago when real candidates crumbled under “Make America Great Again” slogans and a woman whom I would send complaint emails to but we all know how’d that turn out.
