It was hardly must see TV. The first presidential debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden quickly devolved into a shouting match, complete with name calling and orders to shut up. It was not very presidential. To say it was a circus is an affront to circus clowns. For those of us who have watched presidential debates for decades, it was something, thankfully, we had never seen before. Sure there were always quips and jabs, but there were boundaries. On Tuesday there were no boundaries. Imagine if you were a young person preparing to vote for the first time, watching two grown adults act like children. These are the people we look to for leadership, to guide the future of our nation. Probably not very comforting for those new to politics. And what did we learn from the debate that will influence our vote in November? Their position on the issues was not the takeaway. The childish behavior was. That’s why they should scrap the two remaining debates scheduled. It would be a service to the country if these two men did not share a stage again. If it was this bad in the first debate, imagine what the second or third could look like. We don’t need to see that again. There were no real winners in the first debate, but clearly America and our cherished democracy are the losers.
