The first presidential debate, on Tuesday 29, was also the first bit of fun we’ve had in a while.
True, President Donald J. Trump failed to float his theory about that “big fat shot in the ass” Joe Biden likely got from his handlers, to allow the Democratic candidate to nimbly prance onto the debate stage and, “for two hours,” be “better than ever before.”
But, like Muhammad Ali, the heavyweight boxing legend, POTUS floated like a butterfly and stung like a bee. A masculine force at full tilt, Mr. Trump provided plenty energy and entertainment as he blattered Joe Biden, while being funny in the process.
“If you didn’t enjoy that debate, you are a soy-boy, beta cuck,” a fun-loving fella tweeted out. Soy-boy Shapiro was having none of the fun stuff. Glum and sanctimonious, Ben tweeted out: “I literally have no idea who won this debate. I just know we all lost.”
The self-styled philosopher-king’s funereal pronouncement received the benefit of a Michelle Malkin reenactment. Don’t miss that hilarity, 3:40 minutes into her post-debate podcast.
In letting out a collective primal groan that was music to MAGA ears, Ben-Shap was joined by every liberal and Never Trumpster on the left-wing game reserve.
Dana Bash of CNN lamented a “shitshow,” in which “the American people lost.” “The debate was a disaster for democracy,” her shell-shocked colleagues yelped. (Well, good, because the founders of this republic didn’t think much of democracy.)
Certainly, judging by the rabid frothing and foaming on CNN, Trump did indeed win Tuesday’s debate. Anderson Cooper whinged to Republican commentator Rick Santorum: “It’s not even funny. Are you proud of the president? Santorum could not conceal a grin: “He came out HOT.”
Livid, Van Jones deployed his best rhetorical device: repetition. “Three things happened: The president refused to condemn white supremacy. The president refused to condemn white supremacy. The president refused to condemn white supremacy.” Gloria Borger, also at CNN, required sedation.
A man infatuated with his own cleverness, Jake Tapper bewailed “the worst debate in history, a hot mess, inside a dumpster fire, inside a train wreck.” (Who wrote that “hot mess”?) Tapper forgot an interesting tidbit: Such fires are typically lit by the “idea” called Antifa.
Yes, Biden had called Antifa an idea. …
… READ THE REST… NEW COLUMN, “Trump Floated Like A Butterfly And Stung Like A Bee,” appeared on the Unz Review, WND.COM, the Quarterly Review out of London, founded in 1809. It is now a feature on American Greatness.

“The hive media”: I will have to steal that. Have you, sir, heard Ben-Shap speak? It’s hard to believe anyone would listen to a rapid-fire chipmunk. Content: mediocre, Republican fare.
Dennis Kucinich was a very nice presence in politics. The late Robert Byrd was a great constitutionalist, too, a Democrat who could not escape the idiot comments from Republicans about his past. Byrd opposed Obama Care and other extra-constitutional adventurism.
