Over an hour before the vice presidential debate started, the Republican National Committee declared Mike Pence handily beat Tim Kaine. Why? Because they are a bunch of witless amateurs pretending to be a bonafide political party.
Here’s what the the RNC website stated (screen shot above):
Americans from all across the country tuned in to watch the one and only Vice Presidential debate. During the debate we helped fact check and monitor the conversation in real time @GOP. The consensus was clear after the dust settled, Mike Pence was the clear winner of the debate.
This horrendous gaffe could only have been made by the GOP — an organization so criminally stupid, incompetent and corrupt that it is amazing they have managed to survive this long. It is of course common knowledge that both political parties go into spin mode when it comes to the outcome of presidential debates, but the party shills only do this after the fucking debate is over.
The RNC’s little accident is reminiscent of Melania Trump’s plagiarized speech at the RNC convention back in July — a mistake so basic that a 7th grade debate team would have done a better job preparing their candidate.
This latest blunder is yet further evidence that the Republican party is in utter, utter chaos and is in desperate need of a complete overhaul. Donald Trump is not only wrecking his own presidential ticket, but the party he claims to represent. And that party is clearly wilting under the pressure. So desperate are they to spin reality into the fictional one their candidate is attempting to sell, that they are quite literally making shit up before it actually happens.
Can this election get anymore ridiculous? We’ve got another month of this freak show, and the sooner Trump and the GOP go down in flames, the better.
