During the first presidential debate I initially wondered about Hillary Clinton's debating style which didn't seem very presidential. She seemed to prefer personal attacks unrelated to presidential matters over a discussion about policy matters. After thinking about the debate for a few days I realized that her behavior reminded me of the way women are portrayed as arguing on television shows.
Clinton didn't take the debate seriously. Her red pant
suit and perky demeanor are more appropriate for a party than a
serious debate of the issues.
Donald Trump remained serious during the debate, but Clinton grinned
whenever she found an opportunity to use one of her favorite catch
phrases or made a personal attack on Trump. As I was writing
this statement I realized what some of her facial expressions remind
me of child who looks for approval when she thinks she has
said something special.
Clinton's "perkiness" is disturbing because she appears perky even
when discussing serious subjects as if she doesn't really understand
the seriousness of the situation.
I'm a week older than Bill Clinton. Those in our age group are
alert to indications that others are possibly deteriorating
mentally. Hillary at times reminds me of those little old lady
characters who are out of touch with reality.
