On Tuesday night, the presidential debate between the current occupant of the White House and Democratic nominee Joe Biden was raucous and well, depressing. Donald Trump interrupted Biden at every turn, and moderator Chris Wallace failed to take control. Trump gave a shout out to white supremacists, telling them to “stand back and stand by” in a startling remark. That was where the depression sank in, and the world gasped. So, following the debate, the pair greeted their wives, which was very telling.
There really hasn’t been any love shown between this president and his wifebot, which was obvious following Trump’s performance. Even the first lady and Jill Biden’s outfits seemed to tell a story. I’m just curious if taxpayers will have to foot the bill for Melania’s $3,340 striped Dolce & Gabbana suit that she wore to the debate.
At any rate, there was a stark contrast in the greetings to their wives with Trump and Melania displaying no affection toward each other — and the Bidens warmly embracing each other.

Melanie looks like shes concentrating really hard to tick off the required payout boxes:
1. Look at him and smile
2. Act like you’d hug him if he wasnt soilent green
3. Smile at the audience and act happy to be there
4. Stay a minimum of 2 minutes

She’s upset that all she’s going to inherit from the actor who plays a businessman on tv is his massive debt.

I felt like Jill hugged Joe for all of us. I love that sweet couple so much.

I agree with the Twitter user above. Also, I’m voting for the man that’s not trying to kill us.
