If it wasn’t clear from my earlier post, I didn’t watch the whole fakakta debate. This was only the second time Joe Biden and Donald Trump were on a debate stage together, and only the first time they’ve been on a stage together where Trump wasn’t feverish and insane from the coronavirus. It actually wouldn’t surprise me at all if they gave Trump some drugs to make him calm down a little bit? I mean, he was still insane and lies poured out of his mouth like wine, but he was “calmer” than we’ve seen before. Of course, that didn’t stop his wife from hating his guts. Melania was there at the Tennessee debate hall, making her first public appearance in the three weeks since she tested positive for the coronavirus too. After the debate, Dr. Jill Biden and Melania walked on stage to greet their husbands. This is what happened when Donald Trump tried to hold his wife’s hand:

I will say this – there were some tweets suggesting that Donald Trump “shoved” her after she jerked her hand away, but he didn’t? He gave her a pat on the back, more out of disorientation than anything else. He was clearly trying to get Melania to guide him off the stage and she wasn’t about to. Yeah. She hates him. And considering all of the time he’s been spending with Hope Hicks, I think Mel probably already knows that within a year, she’s not going to be around.
People were also wondering if it looks like Mel has a black eye? I don’t think so, I think she was just wearing too much makeup and the lighting wasn’t great.
