Presidential Debate or Reality TV Show?
December 11, 2016
It’s election year! After almost a year and a half since Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton announced their aspirations to becoming president of the United States of America, they finally get to clash their ideas in the presidential debate. But wait—what exactly are they talking about?
Throughout each debate, they would be asked about a serious problem in the country and instead of talking about how to fix the problem, they talked about the flaws or bad decisions about their opponent. Not just that, but most of the time (mostly Trump), they kept on interrupting each other with comments that had nothing to do with the questions that were asked to them. It seemed as if they were in a reality tv show instead of a presidential debate.
This election was similar to watching the show “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.” In the show, there’s more of an emphasis on drama—which is irrelevant to any real life problem. It’s more for entertainment purposes. The election has also been filled with unnecessary drama and comments. So should the debate just be known as the presidential debate, or should it be known as Keeping Up With The Election?
