Trump v Clinton

“Better to reign in Hell, than to serve in Heaven.” - John Milton, Paradise Lost

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump faced off at Washington University in St. Louis for the second presidential debate of the 2016 general election. Welcome to hell, everybody, welcome to Hell!

Straight out of hell
One of a kind
Stalking his victim
Don't look behind! Judas Priest - Night Crawler

Throughout this apparent debate, Trump stalked and hovered behind Hilary like some kind of bleached whale. It seemed at one point that he would reveal a hammer from up his sleeve, and bludgeon the poor woman to death. He's no magician though, just a dillusionist. This was disturbing television of the worse kind. It was difficult to watch throughout with little mention of any real policy and any real charm, just a barrage of accusations, by the two most disliked candidates in American Presidential history who took big lumps out of each other. Rather like the bloody and violent scene when Jesus gets whipped and gouged by the Romans from Mel Gibson’s ‘The Passion Of The Christ’, this was like watching the verbal equivalent.

Notably no handshake at the start of this mess, but lots of hate speak, rape accusations, and at one point, when jaws hit the proverbial floor. Trump responds to Clinton saying, it’s good someone like him isn’t in charge of the law: “Because you’d be in jail.” Blimey! Mrs. Clinton never lost her composure. At times she smiled, rather like Heath Ledger’s ‘The Joker’ and accused him of lies, what else could she do, she seemed to be sharing a stage with a psychopath. He was really scary. Really.

“From his lips/Not words alone pleased her.”
― John Milton, Paradise Lost

Is this American politics? Where the whole Nation hiding behind a huge shared duvet, taking the occasional glimpse and asking “Is it all over yet?”. Who could vote for either of these two? It would be preferable to vote for their pet dogs, but that’s not possible, Hilary hasn’t got one and Trump eat his as a snack before lunch.

“Abashed the devil stood and felt how awful goodness is and saw Virtue in her shape how lovely: and pined his loss”
― John Milton, Paradise Lost

Towards the end Trump raised a laugh in the audience whom looked like they had some serious terminal illness. (Obama care is very expensive apparently).

Trump: “No, I’m a gentleman, Hillary. Go ahead.”

Like inviting someone else to jump first out of the collapsing Twin Towers. When’s the next one? I can’t wait, to watch Hell burn once more.
