I definitely haven’t been following the election too closely, or as closely as I would like to be. I’ve heard certain things, and read some news articles here and there throughout this whole mess. However, this article has definitely got me shaking my head. I think this election is ludicrous, and just a circus. I’ve never really followed or been involved in American politics. I’ve seen elections, but perhaps because of my age at the time, I was never too interested. This election has me questioning and asking myself, are elections normally this way? Or is it this election in particular? It seems like a joke. Clinton’s campaign is stating that WikiLeaks shouldn’t be trusted because it is a “propaganda arm” for Russia, and is being used to help Donald Trump win. I haven’t looked into or researched the “facts” yet. Then, WikiLeaks went on to call the Clinton campaign liars. To me, the severity of the accusations being made by the Clinton campaign is not something that should be “fired” on a social media platform like Twitter. Maybe I’m just old fashioned, but the involvement and use of social media, in this way, seems absurd. It feels like I’m watching two kids in high school, or two celebrities “beefing”, on Twitter. It seems so unprofessional and so distasteful. Frankly, this election embarrassing, and I don’t know what to think of it.
