After the first presidential debate on Sept. 26th, there have been a lot reactions relating to the conduct of the nominees behavior during the debate. Many after watching the debate were even more disappointed in the two candidates that America has the choice to choose from. This debate would also for some, solidify who they would and would not vote for.
All fashions of people responded publicly after watching the debate. “I watched a little bit of it, to me it was embarrassing to watch that these are our two candidates,” Kaepernick said. “Both are proven liars and it almost seems like they’re trying to debate who’s less racist. At this point, in talking to one of my friends, you have to pick the lesser of two evils, but in the end evil is still evil.”
Over 80 million people tuned in to watch the candidates go at each other. Seniors at Truman High School are excited to vote for the first time, but despite all their eagerness, students at Truman weren’t impressed.
“I watched some of the debate, and I thought it was a waste of my time. I really don’t care for either one of the candidates.” junior, Syrell Thorpe said.
The debate has really became more of a joke than an actual candidacy. The joke is more from the candidates rather than America herself. First, there’s Hillary Clinton who can’t keep up with her own emails, so how would she be able to keep up with the whole country. Then you have Donald Trump who can’t make a statement without retracting it. What country wants an irresponsible 68-year-old as a president, or an indecisive disrespectful 70-year-old? The traits that these two have displayed publicly are not the traits of one who wants to take the responsibility of running a country, or being a leader period. So don’t find it surprising that some of the people in our country are dispirited about the candidates or the debate that has taken place, because if you look at what it has come too, it isn’t surprising at all.
