I realize after forcing myself to watch parts of the Democratic Debate (like that bad taste of medicine) that ACTING was the key ingredient to success. For it wasn’t exactly what you said that counted but the connection you can make those words have with your audience. Let’s face it the President’s role as an actor on the Apprentice helped him build the “character” he is and on that stage were 10 who were trying to get through their 2nd auditions. Here’s a few takeaways.
Bernie Sanders & Elizabeth Warren- You’re acting for the camera not on a theater stage which means you don’t have to scream out every word or appear to cry on the other side.
Amy Klobuchar- Came across as that mean teacher who sent you and me to the principal.
Steve Bullock – Had a bit more time to practice his role since he didn’t get to the 1st audition (debate) and it showed with a sharp straight forward performance.
Marianne Williamson – Looks to play the role of Mrs. Smith goes to Washington in a 1969 remake instead of 2020.
Pete (whatever his last name)- Had such a bad hair day that I didn’t notice what the hell he was talking about.
The rest should be cut from the next audition stage.
