Bean: Biden and Trump golf match?


by Paul Bean

I won’t lie. I was just like everyone else last night. I was sort of excited to watch the debate because I knew its potential for laughs and sheer entertainment value. 

So, as I was closing up the Creemee Stand I texted a few friends that work at the local pub, Good Measure, to see if they would put it on the television and we could all watch together. Some young Americans, participating in democracy? Why not?!  After some initial resistance from some of the gang, they agreed we could put it on the TV. Woohoo!

Well. After about 10 minutes, most everyone had seen and heard enough… (except for me of course). Voting by majority rules, they opted to replace the debate and put the music back on. I did not argue with them, because frankly, I understood why they couldn’t take it anymore.  

The debate managed to stay focused on the issues for about 30 minutes, however it quickly devolved into name calling and really just good-ole-fashion mud-slinging.

“The only person on this stage who is a convicted felon is this man I’m looking at right now,” Biden said, referring to Trump’s recent felony convictions.

 “My son was not a loser, was not a sucker. You’re the sucker, you’re the loser,” referred Biden to an alleged comment made by Donald Trump about military service members. 

 “How many billions of dollars do you owe in civil penalties for molesting a woman in public, for doing a whole range of things, for having sex with a porn star on the night – and while your wife was pregnant? I mean, what are you talking about? You have the morals of an alley cat,” said Biden.

Trump retorted: “I didn’t have sex with a porn star, number one.” Now, there’s a line we’ve never heard in a presidential debate…In my opinion, the most ridiculous part of the whole debate is when they started arguing about who was a better golfer:

“I just won two club championships, not even senior, two regular club championships. To do that, you have to be quite smart and you have to be able to hit the ball a long way. And I do it. He doesn’t do it. He can’t hit a ball 50 yards. He challenged me to a golf match,” Bragged Trump. 

Biden replied: “Look, I’d be happy to have a driving contest with him. I got my handicap, which, when I was vice-president, down to a six. And by the way, I told you before that I’m happy to play golf if you carry your own bag. Think you can do it?”

Trump: “That’s the biggest lie that he’s a six handicap, of all.”

Biden: “I was eight handicap.”

Trump: “Yeah.”

Biden: “Eight, but I have – you know how many … ”

Trump: “I’ve seen your swing, I know your swing.””

“Let’s not act like children,” said Trump

 “You are a child,” Biden fired back. 

All in all, the real winner of the debate was not Trump or Biden, but it was CNN. Not just for ratings sake, but they actually managed to put on a decent debate. When the debate was actually focused on the issues, they asked difficult questions to both Trump and Biden. And by the way- shout out to them for showing the split screen the whole time so the whole country could see how much of a zombie Biden was when he didn’t think he was on camera. 

Guy and Paul will be discussing the Debate, today on Friday at Four on VDCTV. See you there!
