    Please be safe. Don’t play the “drink every time Trump lies” game or you’ll end up with lethal alcohol poisoning.

    • L8Comer

      Oh yeah, I forgot I have alcohol

      • Tambra

        What you drinking?

        • L8Comer

          sauvignon blanc :) This show doesn’t start till 9 tho I just learned! so late. Ima take it easy till then

          • Tambra

            Oh I just had chocolate from scratch.

            • L8Comer

              Word? U made it? So… can i have some?

              • Tambra

                Yes please. Boiled that sucker added the cinnamon, sugar, salt, bayleaf and milk. I am pouring your cup right now.

                • L8Comer

                  omgggosh, that sounds sooo good!! You guys are really spoiling me today and I so deserve it. :)

          • LMNOP

            A little too late, I told my very interested in politics 10 year old we could watch it this morning, I figured it would be on at 8.

            • L8Comer

              Awww is she bummed? You can always watch it tomorrow too.

              • LMNOP

                I’m still going to let her watch some of it

                • L8Comer

                  thats so cute. My niece is 11. I wonder if she’s watching. She still wants Obama to be President. I told her that wasn’t an option and asked her who she prefers then and she she told me “Aunt L8, I don’t care about that. I just wanna not get killed by ISIS and play with my ponies” lolol, i love her.

                  • LMNOP

                    Aw, kids are so funny. I love it. My daughter wants Obama to stay president too (heII, so do I) and when she found out Clinton used to be first lady she got so excited and was like “wait. Can’t wejust get Michelle Obama instead?”

                    • L8Comer

                      Lolol that’s funny :) kids are funny

                  • PhlyyPhree

                    My daughter legit cried last night when I told her Obama had to go. She thought he was going to be president forever. I hated I had to be the parent and not cry with her.

                    • L8Comer

                      Awww, thats actually really sad. For so many kids this is the only President they have ever known. The sharp contrast must be confusing and scary for them

                • L8Comer

                  what did your daughter think?

                  • LMNOP

                    She was pretty much angry the whole time Trump was talking. We both yelled at the TV several times. She was jumping on the couch until it started irritating me. At the end when they announced the next debate, she jumped up and was like “October 9th! I’m ready!” And then fell fast asleep a few minutes later.

                    • L8Comer

                      Hahahahhaha, she sounds very bright and adorable :) I imagine her falling asleep like a narcoleptic lol, just out

            • Nik White

              Young VSS in the building.

    • Cherron

      That’s how you win tho. You die and don’t have to live through this election.

    • TeeChantel

      I’mma be Serani on this one and play no games. I’m just going to drink. Bacardi Pineapple on deck.

      • Emmie

        I appreciate how you slipped a Serani mention into this thread…now i can’t stop singing “just in case yuh neva know” lol…cheers!

    • Hugh Akston

      that’s actually quite a good idea

      put a line up and say whether or not it’s truth haha

    • The liver regenerates.

      The bottle of wine I posted downthread is 1.5 liters.

      • LMNOP

        The liver regenerates??

        • To a point. I shall test this. For science.

          • Emmie

            I’m here testing that out with you…for science too…of course

      • Diego Duarte

        Even if you were Wolverine, I highly doubt that your liver can regenerate faster than Trump can lie. SMH.

    • Cleojonz

      Man listen, I was feeling it inside of the first 5 minutes with the amount of times he said Mexico and China.

      • Diego Duarte

        I arrived late. But I still gasped at the racist BS he spewed.

  • This is like if Bart and Lisa ran against each other for class president…I almost can’t believe this is real life.

    • L8Comer

      I giggled so high and loud! so accurate

    • PriceIsRightHorns

      To date, this is the most accurate synopsis I’ve read about this tomfoolery.

      • Tambra

        You saw John Oliver’s take on the elections?

        • PriceIsRightHorns

          I haven’t read it yet. What’s he talking about?

          • Tambra
            • PriceIsRightHorns

              Dwight “Deez Nuts” Eisenhower. ????

              • Tambra

                If Trump wins, he will be deported so quickly it’s not funny.

            • PhlyyPhree

              Honestly, I watched Scandal on netflix towards the end of the debate. WAY more realistic than what was on my tv

              • Tambra

                Hehehe. Good call. I was all over the comment thread laughing away.

    • TeeChantel

      Accurate. I still can’t believe we’re watching Donald Trump in the presidential race.

    • LMNOP

      I would be SO much happier with either Simpson sibling than what we actually got.

      • Brother Mouzone

        Heck, I’d be happier with OJ Simpson..lol.

    • Cleojonz

      I said the same thing last night. I looked at my co-worker and said how did we get here? I can’t even really believe this is happening.

  • Brass Tacks

    Unless one of these these mofos can turn water into wine on live tv. I will sit this one out. Check in with y’all tomorrow.

    • Tambra

      Go buy your own liquor.

  • J Dubz

    I work with the mentally ill. Today one of my clients told me she’s going to see Trump live tomorrow and showed me her tickets. Welp, those are his people!

    • LMNOP

      #notallcrazies
      A lot of mentally ill people aren’t voting for Trump.

  • L8Comer

    Who has snacksss? I shoulda bought some popcorn. I’m gonna cook

    • Tambra
      • L8Comer

        How fitting, lol. *Shakes some popcorn into my hands*

        • Tambra

          Yup. Shid’s going down. Take all. I hate popcorn.

          • L8Comer

            oh thank you Tambra!!

  • A.G.

    This will be a fun night.

    • I’m ashamed at how much I’m looking forward to this train wreck.

      • Tambra

        I am just looking forward to the comments on threads.

      • L8Comer

        I hope it is a train wreck. Otherwise I’lll be bored. And I’m not ashamed

      • A.G.

        Embrace it. I hope we don’t get Xanax Trump.

        • Tambra

          His juice is stronger than xanax. It will wear off 15 min in.

    • Negro Libre
  • A.G.

    I wonder if Trump will call her “crooked Hillary” to her face.

    • L8Comer

      He will. Let’s make bets!

      Winner drinks, loser… uhhh? abstains?

      • Tambra

        From chex?

        • L8Comer

          Tambra? I would never force that one anyone. Thats’s extreme lol. I meant drinking, but I like AG’s suggestions

        • kingpinenut

          That kind of abstention is grounds for divorce

          • Hugh Akston

            what? but why?

            sometimes you need a break-so i’ve heard

            • L8Comer

              and on a night like this, it could go either way.

              • Hugh Akston

                true true

            • kingpinenut

              *redacted*

          • Tambra

              • Tambra

                You should try it.

                • L8Comer

                  Currently trying it. I guess it’s okay. My soul feels no better tho

                  • Tambra

                    I concur. But misery likes company.

                    • L8Comer

                      Lololol!!

        • L8Comer

          Ohhhhh that’s so good! It’s on!

        • Negro Libre

          Loser has to listen to the entire Rush Limbaugh show for a day

    • TeeChantel

      I hope to hear less insults and more of what he plans to do if he wins the presidency.

      • Tambra

        Not going to happen.

        • TeeChantel

          Wishful thinking.

          • Tambra

            Full on fantasy.

      • Erect a white supremacist state?

        • Tambra

          So what will become of Pastor Mark Burns and Diamond and ratcheter?

    • Hugh Akston
