Missed The Democrat Debate? The Taiwanese Animators Summarize It In One Cartoon

For those who prudently had much better things to do last night than to watch the first Democrat presidential debate, and who inexplicably are still curious about what they missed - you are in luck: the Taiwanese animators have taken the time to summarize everything that the average American consumer, shown in this picture from the clip...

 

... was meant to take home from this latest pandering to the lowest common denominator.

 

For a more serious take on last night's spectacle, Mike Krieger has shared, courtesy of ReasonTV, "The 3 Best and Worst Moments of the Democratic Debate (From a Libertarian Standpoint)"

 

He also adds the following:

One of the most offensive lies told by Clinton seen in the video clip above relates to Edward Snowden. As Dan Froomkin at the Intercept notes:

 

Clinton’s comments on Snowden were flawed in more than one way. She also insisted, incorrectly, that he could have accomplished his goals by going through normal channels.

 

“He could have been a whistleblower. He could have gotten all of the protections of being a whistleblower. He could have raised all the issues that he has raised. And I think there would have been a positive response to that,” she said.

But Snowden, as a contractor, was not covered by whistleblower protections. He did try going through established channels, but he said his concerns fell on deaf ears.
 And the response to his leaks has made abundantly clear that no one in
his chain of command was the least bit interested in going public with
the information.

She is a master deceiver.
