#GOPTownHall VS #DemTownHall Twitter Style!

Last night was certainly a night of whiplash if you were a politico of any sort. Seriously, toggling back and forth via the TV and Twitter concerning the GOP and DEM town halls was enough to make anyone dizzy! Sooo- rather than delve into the weeds of any particular issue, lets take a stab at recapping highlights Twitter style!

Cueing up the #DemTownHall:

No.. really and truly NOT crazy at all…except to those of us taxpayers who will be footing the bill for his misguided largess, starting with his grand idea to raise the minimum wage!

One question: how many businesses that bought the $15 an hour koolaid are now struggling to make payroll? Too many. On to the weird factor of the night…

Wait what??  Ok – I don’t even know how to compute that.

Don't Ask Me About Emails!
Don’t Ask Me About Emails!

Oh yeah… he’s an expert alright! So lovely that he’s, according to Hillary, such an example of something or another.

Hillary? The next batch of emails will be released today. Any guesses as to how many other assets and national security information you’ve thrown under the bus? Speaking of which…this was arguably one of the best moments of the night.

Oooh boy!! 

Clinton pivoted to her claims that she had long been warning Wall Street about their excesses prior to the Great Recession but in pure Clinton fashion, she didn’t directly answer the question concerning her conduct but instead chided the behavior of others: “Let me say this, I am happy to release anything I have when everybody else the same because every other candidate in this race has given speeches to private groups, including Senator Sanders.”

That was a super duper really good Non-Answer! And then there was her slam against Bernie…

Okey dokey! On to the #GOPTownHall

Well…

OUCH!

In fact, when asked if he’d keep Obama’s executive orders on gun control in place, Katich answered in the negative.

Kasich is correct. We need a Justice who will INTERPRET the law rather than legislate from the bench.

So very true! Lets see what The Donald himself had to say about key subjects. Iraq first.

Never mind the fact that his opposition now is suspect because, well you know, there’s no record of his opposition during the ACTUAL invasion!

Semantics dontcha know. Don’t worry, he’s also repeating the whole false line of ‘there were no weapons of mass destruction.” As for his latest spat – this one with Pope Francis? You guessed it, he adopted a different tune from earlier in the day.

Meanwhile on the domestic front there is this:

About that wall…

And then there is this:

There are a LOT of people who have problems with his lack of self control!

Not a bad answer actually. Jeb performed better at this town hall than he has at the recent debates. Seems this format is more workable for him.

Unlike Obama who would expect that the Senate just bow to him and skate the nominee through…

And finally, your musical portion of the night. It seems that Jeb is a fan of Florida Georgia Line and the Zac Brown Band. Meanwhile Donald sticks with the Beatles, Rolling Stones, and Elton John, but just had to add one more thing:

He’s also an excellent name-dropper, touting his love for not just Michael Jackson’s music, but the man, who lived in Trump Tower.

Trump said he knew “the real story of Michael Jackson,” and revealed a bit about his own bravado in explaining it: “Michael was an unbelievable talent who lost his confidence, and believe it or not, when you lose your confidence in something, you can actually lose your talent.”

True? Not true? You never know. But I have to say, the most surprising of all was the bands John Kasich listed as his favorites. Who knew he’d be a fan of newer alternative rock? Specifically Linkin Park, Fall Out Boy, and twenty one pilot’s song “Stressed Out?” Wow!

So there you have it.  Your compilation of all that was weird, strange, funny, jaw dropping, and musical from the Dem and GOP town halls last night. You’re welcome.

    Nina, did you get stuck with that duty due to an acknowledged bit of ADD? Or was it just luck of the draw? 😉

    As to the Iraq invasion (and the Afghanistan fight, too), the real problem was not the actual war/invasion. The problem was having a strategy of nation-building that didn’t acknowledge the need to change the culture before you could actually build a civilized nation.

    It’s one of the proofs that Bush had bought into the prog mentality (SO many people have, it’s part and parcel of everything beyond 2+2=4 in school nowadays) – he thought that as long as they voted and had a constitution – any constitution – it was a free civilized nation.

      Good point. And don’t forget that they had to buy into the constitution that was being sold as a way to fix everything… too many of them didn’t.
