Democrats And Republicans Debate About Things Other Than Politics
This election season blows.
If I see another article about He Who Must Not Be Named, or watch Hilary attach herself to another hip thing (first it was Lena Dunham, then it was Hamilton), I'm going to curb stomp all my electronic devices.
If I'm being honest with myself, I'm much less politically active than I'd like to be. I was trying to change this about myself for the 2016 election.
When the stale cheese puff of a man first gained some real footing in the election, I tried to make it my business to stay informed. I attended an inspiring Bernie Sanders rally in Washington Square Park, temporarily moved by his words to vote. I started off strong.
As the season continued, my inspiration got fogged by the GOP's deranged debates and the media's misguided, silly coverage.
Don't get me wrong. I loved when the bald eagle attacked the Donald, and I still love seeing Hillary Clinton's street style through a variety of monochrome pant suits. But it didn't motivate me to stay active in the political sphere. The election became front page news for National Inquirer.
With the first Clinton vs. Trump debate tonight, my expectations are low. While I know Hillary will do her darndest to stick to the issues, I can only imagine the offensive, gibberish Trump will be spouting from the hole he cleans with his marble bidet.
All I want is a clean debate. So, we gathered a group of young Democrats and Republicans to do just that.
Instead of grilling them with questions about immigration, female reproductive rights or climate change, we decided to go a different route.
To see Democrats and Republicans have a fair debate about things other than politics, watch the video above. And if you haven't already, go register to vote!
