The Great Debate Awaits....

September 26, 2016 – How will Hillary fend off Donald? And how will the man with the macaroni and cheese complexion fare in an environment that demands full control? The pundits are turning purple assessing their battle strategies, but it seemed hopeless the moment they decided against in-debate fact-checking. The truth does not matter anymore. Just optics, likability and one-liners. “The world may not survive a Donald Trump Presidency,” said one former Trump associate speaking on CNN. “He’s a liar and a fraud.” But nobody seems to care if he’s lying, or if he broke the law, or if he’s running for the most powerful office in the world because it serves his ego. People want change. But how would voting for a privileged white guy change anything? His greatest con is convincing the American people he represents change when he’s actually all about status quo, self-interest and suppressing truth by accusing media of conspiratorial lying. Hillary is a woman. No woman has ever been elected President of the United States. That’s a pretty big change. And we embrace change at The Ex-Press. Heck, we’re changing as we speak…. Soon, we’ll have just one home, right here, at ex-press.com. So why not make yourself comfy?
