Only this would come out of the mouth of Donald Trump, right?
And the outrageous comments are just continuing to come on through during this chaotic presidential campaign.
And during his North Carolina rally, Trump made a very bold claim about Jesus Christ…
When will he learn to read a room?
And it’s been an explosive journey coming up to it, to say the least!
But it seems that he has some serious competition from his Democratic rival, Joe Biden.
But it has been powering on ahead… despite many major setbacks.
Entering into the debate, Biden had a significant and persistent lead in the polls.
Biden’s lead was compounded by a cash crunch in Trump’s campaign, with Biden’s campaign donations improving significantly.
And in the weeks running up the debate, he attempted to cast doubt over Biden’s abilities, claiming that he was suffering from dementia and that he was taking performance-enhancing drugs.
Trump even requested Biden to take a drug test before the debate!
Both Trump and Biden seemed to be having a field day throwing insults at one another and calling each other out.
The Trump and Biden records, the Supreme Court, the COVID-19 pandemic, the economy, the issue of race and violence in cities, and the integrity of the election.
But despite these firm rules, the pair just seemed to focus on personal insults… and even familial issues.
And it didn’t leave a pleasant taste in the mouths of viewers who were, quite frankly, left feeling disgusted at what they had just witnessed.
And the people of America have never before felt so disheartened in the run-up to an election.
And things took an ultimate turn for the worst when at the start of October, the President and the First Lady, Melania, tested positive for COVID-19.
Trump insisted that they immediately went into self-isolation together and that they felt fine, but after just a few days, he was hospitalized at Walter Reed National Military Centre.
He was discharged just a few days later and insisted to the nation that all we need to do is to “learn to live with COVID”, which was very concerning to hear.
Washington Bureau Chief for USA Today, Ellen Page, moderated the heated debate in Utah and in similarity to the first Presidential Debate, sparks flew for miles.
Including her putting her hand up and firmly saying, “Mr. Vice President, I’m speaking”… engulfing Pence into silence.
Including the COVID-19 pandemic, Trump administration, racism and inequality, and the Supreme Court; all of which were discussed in a much calmer and well-rounded nature than the President and Biden.
And it probably didn’t help Trump’s campaign any more that Pence became a laughing stock after a fly landed on his head half-way through the debate.
You really can’t make these things up!
But when Joe Biden proposed making the next presidential debate a virtual one in the interest of health and safety, Trump put his foot down.
The Commission on Presidential Debates announced that the October 15th town hall-style debate in Miami would take place virtually as health experts raised concerns about whether it would be safe to hold the event in person given Trump is still recovering from COVID-19.
For some reason, the proposition of a virtual debate infuriated the President and he boldly said he “wouldn’t waste his time” on it.
And in typical Trump fashion, the President announced at the last minute that he will be holding his own town hall forum in Miami at exactly the same time, hosted by NBC.
And this is the first time ever that 2 hopeful presidential candidates will go head-to-head at the same time while not being at the same event.
But right now, all people can talk about is Trump’s rally that took place earlier today in Greenville, North Carolina.
And when he was speaking about a recent interaction he’d had by saying, “Somebody said to me the other day, ‘you are the most famous person in the world by far’.”
“I said, ‘no, I’m not.’ He said, ‘yes, you are.’ I said, ‘no, I am not.’ He said, ‘who is more famous?’ I said, ‘Jesus Christ’.”
I’m not having any arguments,” he then said.
“And let me look up and say, ‘it is not even close’.”
You really can’t make this stuff up.
