The FCC showed the Trump-Hillary debate in the Main Bar over breakfast on Tuesday to a full house. No one lost their breakfast, but it was a close run thing at times. Each debater performed as you might expect: bombast v precision niggling.
Long-time member and shoe fetishist Marty Merz thought it was “cringeworthy in a bigly way”. He then trumped the speakers in confusing rhetoric: “Pneumonaultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis sure trumps floccinaucinihilipilification”.
FCC second vice-president and treasurer Tim Huxley nailed it: “If I had just completed a shift on an assembly line in Detroit, Trump’s soundbites in the first half hour on trade and jobs would swing it, but then he got ruffled when it got personal. I did not think either was particularly presidential.”
