Presidential Debate Tonight:Live Fact Checking and Drinking Game Strategy

Presidential Debate Tonight:Live Fact Checking and Drinking Game Strategy September 26, 2016

Many of us don’t want to believe it has come down to Trump Vs. Clinton but here we are making the best of it. A new feature thanks to the plucky folks at Bloomberg TV is live fact checking! So you aren’t watching with that nagging voice in the back of your head that tells you, “Hey wait a minute that’s not true!” And let’s be realistic that would have been quite distracting watching tonight’s debate.

Also, maybe not the greatest drinking game strategy if you did that every time presidential contender (Gah!) Trump lies.

One of my friends may be half serious when he proposed this strategy.

Debate drinking game: drink until you pass out about half hour before debate. That’s it.

On the pro side, it could spare you a face palm headache. However, the Ra family is watching and live tweeting anyways because that’s what patriotism should be. Rather than being forced to recite a Pledge repeatedly without much critical thought, people should dump the motto “My Country Right or Wrong.” If you want a country to be proud of then you should criticize it when it is wrong.
