Not a word on the economy, not a word on education, not a word on the plummeting life span of the white working class (which is supposed to be the Republican base, by the way), not a word on crime, not a word on poverty, not a word on healthcare. Not a word on anything that is relevant to the daily lives of actual voters.
Are these people running for President of the US or President of the Middle East? I’m sitting here, between Illinois and Missouri, listening to candidates who don’t seem to be aware that Illinois and Missouri exist and face problems that are not connected to the Middle East or even North Korea.
The debate is good entertainment but it’s completely divorced from the real issues facing the country.
