What an absurd waste of time. The very premise of the “Show” was to decide who would be the better Commander in Chief. It went down hill after that.
Matt Lauer pretended to be serious and thoughtful. He failed. He did not pretend to be balanced. He was successful at that.
Later didn’t even bother to ask the same questions of the candidates and tried more gotchas on Trump and made absolutely no follow-up to Hillary’s usual blather.
The only thing serious about the “Show” was Matt Lauer trying to look serious.
Hillary lied about there being no US troops in Iraq. There are 4647. There are also an equal amount of private mercenary contractors. In total there are over 10,000.
As to the idiotic premise about which candidate is better prepared to be CINC, we may as well contract that out as well. We could try Raytheon or better yet, Universal Studios.
The only president that was qualified to be Commander in Chief since the last time we won a war, 71 years ago. was Eisenhower.
Bill Clinton, George Bush, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, Barack Obama ? Which one of them was qualified and what exactly were their qualifications. Reagan did have a fancy salute.
It was all absurd bullshit, almost as absurd as the basic premise of the “Show”. I hope the Kardashians didn’t get bumped.
All The Best
THE ELEPHANT BAR IS CLOSED
I want to thank everyone who participated in the Elephant Bar over the past twelve years. We had millions of visitors from all around the World and you were part of it. Over the past dozen years, two or three times a night, I would open my laptop and some of you were always there. I will miss that.
My plans are to continue my work with technology and architecture. You know my interests and thoughts.
At times, things would get a little rough in the EB. To those of you that I may have offended over the years, I apologize. From all of you, I learned and grew.
An elephant never forgets.
