The Final Debate

Reality beats out lies

Many of my followers said this drawing represented the whole debate.

It was a relatively calm debate; anything would be calm compared to the last one-on-one between Biden and Trump. The fly from the VP debate was not in evidence, a disappointment to many of us. For our sanity, the mute button was the star, however.

I was aware that Trump lied a lot, but the fact checkers have since confirmed that Trump’s words composed the most lying in one stretch of anyone, ever in a debate. Constant lies. Biden was confident, and against a barage of egotistical vents, he shared some of his famous hope and empathy. He also showed a lot of great facial expressions in response to Trump.

One of my favorite one-word answers from Biden was “oh, god.”

Several times Trump successfully rammed some of his comments over the moderator Kirsten Welker’s protestations. While she did a yoman’s job, he often bullied her into silence.

After the debate was over, I listened to commentary on CNN and a final poll was offered. I don’t recall the numbers exactly, but the poll showed Biden won last night’s debate by a large margin. I am so used to being suprised at how close these things are. I would have thought Trump supporters would have been pleased with last night. Maybe they were. There just may not be many of them left.

Below are my drawings. I also videoed my hand drawing for the entire 90 minutes for Happs TV.

I want a tee hirt with the word “c’mon” on it. Biden said it several times. He also would frequently look away from his opponent

Never rose to be captioned, but wanted to capture a typical stance of Trump’s
