Given how obsessed I was with blogging about the previous three Presidential elections I’ve been witness to in this country, I completely missed documenting the most interesting one in 2016. Less than three weeks away, it may be coming to a predictable and anti-climactic end as Hillary Clinton is leading by more than 6 points in an average of polls.
The last of the three debates concluded earlier this week and last night’s Al Smith’s Dinner was the last opportunity where both candidates meet in person. The latter is a social event and is known for self-deprecating humor speeches by the candidates. Although no Obama but Clinton held her own but Trump after a good start, bombed badly and was uncharacteristically booed by the audience. You could seem him smarting and get rattled. I bet his smartphone is hidden away lest he go on a late night tirade on Twitter again.
But more interesting was the fact that his entire political career has been bookended by comedy roasts. It’s said that he decided to finally run for President after he was skewered at the White House Correspondents Dinner by Obama and now less than three weeks before the election, Hillary drags him. There cannot be more justice in the world than to be finished off by people who belong to two groups that he has hated the most in this life – black people and women.
Now it’s the home stretch and his GOTV Director just quit last night but he has to pretend to win and be unwilling to concede through these last two weeks. Karma can be a bitch; Trump should know coz he’s called many people just that.
