What a grueling night.

I just saw the most unwatchable, sickening “debate” and am left believing we have an angry, vicious, and deranged President who knows he’s already lost the election and will do anything , anything, in his considerable power to destroy, upset, and malign the ongoing voting process so that the election can be challenged in the courts.

In his mind, Trump’s only path to victory is a  forced constitutional crisis which in effect overthrows our Democracy by way of the Supreme Court; thus , the importance of the Coney-Bennett nomination. If there’s any certainty revealed to us tonight it is that Trump and his family know he cannot get re -elected in a fair and open election. He has to steal it. There is a looming darkness descending. It’s palpable.

This was not a Presidential debate; rather, it was an extraordinary embarrassment to our country.  It was an unprecedented exercise in abuse and disdain meant to distract from Trump’s free-fall in the polls during this month of September. There was no attempt by Trump to add one vote. Instead, Trump doubled-down on racism and White Supremacy. He refused to renounce the racist Proud Boys, giving them instead a rallying cry.

“Stand Back, Stand By.”

Let no one who watched tonight rest easy that this nightmare will end November 3rd. But a resounding victory by Joe Biden at the Ballot Box and Electoral College in November and the accompanying Fear of God is necessary to crush Trump’s subsequent attempt to seize power outside of the election process through the Supreme Court.

After what we just witnessed , it is well nigh time to save ourselves from the disastrous place we found ourselves tonight. We all love our country far too much not to pull her back from this abyss.
