About the First Debate: Vice President Biden Cuts to the Quick.

I didn’t watch the first debate between Secretary Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Monday nights are my early-to-bed nights. But frankly, I was not keen on watching the rude and boorish behavior that I knew would be on display, either.

Sadly, Trump didn’t disappoint in that regard. I found myself deeply dismayed as I read the debate highlights–particularly Trump’s glib attitude toward paying taxes, among other things.

Then I watched Vice President Joe Biden’s speech at Drexel University this morning for National Voter Registration Day and was struck when he asked,

What in the hell is he [Trump] talking about?

Your thoughts echo my own, Mr. Vice President.

Watch below as he shares his insights.

By the way, Trump’s performance should be a cautionary tale against winging it when it comes to delivering an important presentation. Respect yourself and your audience. Take preparation seriously.
