The media and Donald Trump’s followers are like the kids in the schoolyard who run to watch the fight just to see how awful things are and how messy they will get. When kids are taught to walk the other way instead of encouraging the fight, the impetus for the brawl may subside.
I watched the debate. All the candidates got tough questions. There were lots of other candidates besides Trump who deserve time to share their ideas and be taken seriously.
Voters need to become informed. If the media would give us more reports on what the candidates are saying instead of picking the tidbits that will keep the messy brawl going, they might even be able to turn the tide.
If bullies are not welcome in school, they certainly should not be welcome in the presidential race. Let’s turn away; enough already.
Never miss a local story.
