The first official US presidential debate just happened. And it could have a bearing on whom people would ultimately choose to lead the current world Superpower (US arguably became the only global superpower after the Cold War. As per Time, they remain to be the only superpower in 2016.). Defined as a state that has dominant global territorial influence and preponderant nuclear military capacity, a Superpower affects the lives of people both inside and outside of its boarders.
Now let’s take a look at the people the Americans chose to entrust with the ever so pivotal nuclear codes.
If you missed the 2016 US presidential debate, here’s a quick and accurate, I mean fun, run-through.
This is a debate between a politician and your uncle's Facebook page.

Donald Trump's hair looks like logo on a sweatshirt that was blurred out in post for legal reasons. #debatenight

Trump: "I notice the nasty commercials you do on me." Her commercials are literally just clips of him speaking. #debate

Clinton: Maybe Trump doesn't pay taxes?
Trump: That makes me smart!
People who pay taxes: Um…

Police need better community relations. And that's why I'm submitting my sexy new "Stop and frisky" proposal.

to keep up with Trump's bullshit they had to outsource fact-checking to China. Sad.
— Bill Maher (@billmaher) September 27, 2016
Trump answers questions the way I answered essays in college when I didn't study. Lots of words to hide the fact that I knew nothing.

Surreal, like watching a reasonable person who got into a fender bender with a rage-a-holic and is suddenly being shrieked at on La Cienaga.

What we've learned from Trump's words about racism. He has property in Chicago and Charlotte. But, apparently, not Ferguson.
