Tonight was the final Presidential Debate before the November 8th election, and surprise surprise, it was a total free-for-all. Both candidates were at each other’s throats, and many moments in the debate felt more like reality television from bizare-o world.
With topics ranging from email servers to sexual misconduct, this was more of a no-holds-barred cage match than it was Presidential debate…
The Clinton campaign still has been under fire for her use of a private email server that received several classified documents, and this is causing many to distrust her for either her incompetence or directly defying federal laws and potentially jeopardizing the welfare of the country.
Trump on the other hand is regularly digging his grave deeper and deeper. The man can’t seem to go 48 hours without making a lewd, disparaging, or sexually explicit remark about women. While one would logically assume that this would hurt his numbers, he somehow hasn’t completely lost the female vote – I would try to explain this, but it makes my head hurt.
While there previously had been little to no discussion about either candidate’s plans regarding the hot-button issue of marijuana, tonight we were hoping to hear more about what they intend to accomplish – if elected. Once again we are left wanting more.
There was not a single mention of marijuana in tonight’s debate, and no one has really heard much of anything from either candidate straight from their mouths. This is hugely disappointing, considering that this is a hugely important topic, especially to the younger voters who know that the Baby Boomers are on their way out and it will soon be our time to shine!
With just a few weeks left until the election, one thing is for certain, whoever we end up with, we’re going to have to take the good with the bad. If Trump is elected, we may see women banished to the kitchens and bedrooms of America, but see legalization of marijuana for the financial gains it can offer. If Clinton is elected, we may have a longer shelf life than 90 days, but would likely see no progress whatsoever in regards to the legalization, or even the rescheduling of marijuana within the next 4 years. It’s a real catch 22, that’s for sure. Only time will tell how everything plays out, until then, we’ll be sitting here biting our fingernails along with the rest of you.
