The Donald Trump And Hillary Clinton Face Off Rubs Viewers The Wrong Way

The first presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump was easily a hit. It was watched by 84 million people, according to Nielsen, making it a new record as the most watched debates in the history of televised presidential debates. However, that doesn’t mean that it was all positive vibes from its audience. In fact, by the second debate ratings went down by 21%.

The wrote in a blog post:

“In almost every event featuring Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton or the two of them together, a moment inevitably comes along that crystallizes the wearying, humiliating reality of this sorry presidential campaign.”

Honestly, many people who I attempt to strike a conversation with about the debate either reply that they didn’t tune into it because they aren’t in support of either candidate, they reply with something negative to say about the debate or express their support for Mrs. Clinton.

What rubs viewers the wrong way is that Clinton didn’t give a square account of the fallout from her email practices. Additionally, the issue surrounding the 10 women who have come forward to accuse Trump of sexual assault has been a hard pill to swallow for many people.

But I believe by the third debate, the candidates made a little more progress as far as organization was concerned. Trump’s interruptions were at a minimum, although, he did make a few shocking comments. He said that he wouldn’t accept the result of next month’s presidential election, which was highly unpatriotic. Ultimately, he was more calm and composed than in any other debate.

Mrs. Clinton made a few exceptional points about women’s issues and the role of the Supreme Court in the American people’s lives. She said she expected the court to stand by the people, expressing the importance of LGBT and women’s rights, marriage equality and abortion rights. She said that she hoped that “the Senate would do its job and confirm the nominee that President Obama has sent to them.”

Although, it may be painful to watch, I do believe tuning in and paying attention is important if we want to grow as a country. If you’ve missed the debate check out my write up, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton Face-Off in the Third and Final Debate on I hope you enjoy it!
