Americans Watch Second Presidential Debate And Weep
Tears for America.
At Sunday’s highly anticipated second presidential debate, a group of undecided voters were asked to sit on a stage in St. Louis and ask the candidates questions — hoping to learn more about two people (who they somehow still don’t know enough about). But, if they’re anything like people watching at home, they’re spending less time learning about the candidates and more time bemoaning the circus our political system has become.
Just a third of the way through the second presidential debate, hundreds of Americans were crying — or at least, tweeting that they were:
I'm crying for America right now! He is a joke to this country!#debate

I weep for America. Wish Gary Johnson was on the stage, might hear more about how to move America forward, rather than this garbage. #debate
