Easy to clear

A funny thing happened during last night's presidential debate between Trump and Biden--okay, no it didn't, I lied like Trump did all through the debate. Trump is the incapable of saying anything funny, at least intentionally. True, he acted like a human being, roughly, but all he did was lie in a quieter tone of voice. With the very first question, about the corona virus, the bullshit meter was off the charts. His aim last night was to convince those watching that they should vote to reelect him, and people needed reassurance that he'd do everything in his power to keep them safe. In that, he failed miserably; to steal a line from, I think, Republican strategist Charlie Sykes, he was fat Elvis playing the same old hits in Vegas. He clung to the same delusion he's had since this virus started, that it'll disappear and there are already signs of said disappearance; and he blamed China. He claimed that it would just go away, even though new cases are spiking as we speak, and wherever it started, how does that reassure people they won't get it? I don't know if he's talked himself into believe what he's saying or flat out lying. And the lies continued on from there. 
 
Many people (now I sound like Trump himself) said the president did well; and I'll agree that he had a much better debate than the first one, if lying at a lower volume counts. The bar he had to clear to improve on his shit performance was set so low, it was below ground. This is what we've come to, giving the president praise for not sounding like a rabid dog dick.

Thank you, Hull; and I'm forced to see Trumps smirking face on the Booksie ads, lucky me

Judging by your spelling skills, I'd say you're A. S. in disguise--you undercut your own argument, saying first it's a fraud, then saying Trump got over it in a week, which is it, a fraud or a puss disease? I guess Chris Christie is a secret plant by democrats to make your hero look weak?
