Town-hall Trainwreck and more — #NebDems News

Well, President Trump held a Town Hall Meeting this week, which by all accounts, was predictably awful.

This Reality Show President has sent the nation careening off the tracks into a swamp stew of chaos, lawlessness, grifting, corruption and a pandemic that has all but ruined our economy.

If you managed to sit through it without screaming in horror, you get a Gold Star.

Queue Esquire’s Charlie Pierce.

Evidently, while I was watching a fine NBA playoff game that did not end the way I was hoping it would end, the president* had another unfortunate encounter with his alleged fellow humans, this time in Pennsylvania in a “town hall” format which, alas for the president*, meant questions from actual humans with actual concerns. The result, by all accounts, was a train wreck atop a car wreck upon a dumpster fire at the bottom of a cliff.

The most remarkable thing about this debacle was the fact that it was billed as a town hall for “undecided” voters. I simply cannot—and, increasingly, will not—understand anyone who is “undecided” about giving this guy four more years as president* and, thus, four more years to turn constitutional democracy into a SuperFund site. Just to take one facet of that possibility: can you imagine the kind of stumblebum unemployables with whom he will staff his government for a second term? No purportedly serious Republican will come near him. Nobody with any expertise will answer the phone. You’re going to end up with an executive branch full of people who make Michael Caputo look like Henry Clay. And you’re “undecided” about whether or not this is the outcome you want for the country?

You’re lying. You know you are.
