NBC says Donald Trump emerged “largely unscathed” from last night’s Democratic Debates. For a guy who wasn’t part of the event, Democrats decided not to tackle their nemesis. Even left leaning analysts said Trump was likely to win the election based on their circus. That’s not counting the technical glitch that brought everything to a halt at one point. (Too bad it didn’t stay that way).
The Democrats in last night’s “debate” were Elizabeth Warren, Bill de Blasio, Tim Ryan, Julián Castro, Cory Booker, Beto O’Rourke, Amy Klobuchar, Tulsi Gabbard, Jay Inslee and John Delaney. And they tried to upstage each other by leaning further and further to the left.
NBC says Donald Trump emerged “unscathed”
“The candidates spent far more time talking about how they would help illegal immigrants than about how they would help the voters they most need to win over… If I were Brad Parscale, Donald Trump’s campaign manager, I would be dancing a jig — because if this is the way the Democrats and the media want to discuss the economy and immigration, he is going to have a field day with the quotes they will generate from now until the election.” John Podhoretz, New York Post
Senator Warren even said they didn’t mention Trump on purpose because he’s “an old show and people are tired of hearing about him.”
Sure, Fauxahontas aka Lieawatha, who demands reparations even for gay couples. That’s why your colleagues in Congress spend so much time in endless investigations. THAT is what we’re really tired of, not the President.
The ‘groupo de idiotas’ (Stephen Colbert)
Maybe it was because Cory Booker tried to one up Beto O’Rourke with his vague attempt at Spanish. The closed-caption at the bottom of the screen for O’Rourke read “speaking foreign language.” Well it was foreign, but not necessarily Spanish. They both need some coaching.
“Not entirely sure why he felt he had to do that. He’s either trying to lock up the Hispanic vote or he’s running for embarrassing dad at a Mexican restaurant… the crazy thing was that when O’Rourke was speaking Spanish, the closed captioning provided by NBC just said ‘speaking foreign language.’ I like that, really got through. Really penetrated.” Stephen Colbert, who referred to the Democrats as “grupo de idiotas.” We concur.
Our own Rick Ferran, who really DOES speak Spanish, couldn’t even figure out what they were saying.
“I have no clue what language Cory Booker used but that wasn’t Spanish. One thing is common with these Democrats is we can’t understand when they speak English or any other language. Pandering for votes to the illegals rather than campaigning for the American people is a pathetic plan for the Democrats. Let’s see how that plan works out.” Rick Ferran
The winner of the debate, Donald Trump had some comments about the debate on Twitter:
BORING!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 27, 2019
.@NBCNews and @MSNBC should be ashamed of themselves for having such a horrible technical breakdown in the middle of the debate. Truly unprofessional and only worthy of a FAKE NEWS Organization, which they are!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 27, 2019
