As the country dives head first into the months leading up to the election, we get to experience something that only rolls around every four years. That’s right ladies, I’m talking about the debates. Few and far between are the times when we get to witness two very distinguished adults yell over each other in real time while someone tries and fails to cut them off every two minutes. With the rise of Donald Trump, this election has been an especially wild ride, breaking many unspoken rules of conduct between candidates that have been in place for decades. The following are iconic quotes from a first debate like no other.
“I say nothing. I say nothing. I say nothing.”
“Well Donald, I know you live in your own reality.”
“The record shows that I’m right!”
“I’m going to cut taxes bigly and you’re going to raise taxes bigly.”
“He was a very against police judge.”
“You’re wrong! Murders are up!”
“I’ve got a feeling that by the end of this evening, I’m going to be blamed for everything.”
