People, I am freaking out about tonight’s first debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Now, that’s not because the candidates are anywhere near equal, or because of Clinton’s qualifications, or her ability to address the issues. I’m freaking out because of the circus this whole presidential election has become, and none of us can predict what the hell is going to happen. Will Trump be respectful of Clinton or is he going to get as nasty as he has historically been about women? Will the issues actually be at the forefront of the debate or will subjects be derailed? Will moderator Lester Holt be able to maintain control and steer Trump back on issues if he strays? Frankly, I could go on and on, but I’d rather watch this new Luke Cage trailer on a loop. The first time through, Alfre Woodard’s Mariah Stokes gives Mahershala Ali’s Cornell Stokes (Cottonmouth) a few words of very wise advice, and it’s what I’m going to focus on. Maybe we can all get it going as a trending mantra for tonight’s match.
“You need to take his ass out. You need to find his weakness, and you squeeze.”
Here’s another fabulous tease from Netflix. I’ll see you on the other side.
“You wanna go to war, I’ll take you to war.”
GET IT, HILLARY.
