Reporters and debate moderators rarely ask hard questions as we all know too well. Not their fault entirely, do that and they likely lose their job. They may even have to provide the candidates the questions beforehand like with Hillary. Especially during those phony pre-selected audience member questions.

Wanted to get some ideas on good questions. Something to really make them squirm and stutter. Here is one I think would mess them up good:

1. If given a $100 in US tax dollars (that could not be broken up) and told to give it to either an illegal alien family or a poor black US family who would you give it to and why?

I would pay good money to see that response. Assuming first it would be utter confusion, like WTF where did this come from? Then some stuttering, incoherent statements trying to squirm around it entirely.

1: who gives them the $100.00 to donate????? - matters greatly - can you see why?

Then follow your last paragraph.

You expect to have a politician give a straight answer?
I don't think they know how to do that.

I have a better question to ask the candidates.
You know they will tap dance around the truth so give em a question with that in mind.

"Seeing how you believe our current leadership has put the country in a bad place, why should we believe you have the ability to fix our problems when you've been in goverment for years and have not been able to prevent or fix any situation we have today?"

I’ll stay with a oldie but a goodie that I know goes back at least till the 1980s .

It’s a simple question that never fails to expose a elitist for what they are .

I would ask a moderator to ask Joe Biden .

How much does a gallon of milk cost ?

He wouldn’t have a clue . I bet you he hasn’t bought a gallon of milk in at least 40 years . The peasants do that for him .

It's not so much the question to ask, it's the setup for the querying. I would pay per view a debate where the participants were hooked up to an electrified seat, and if they skirt the answer or blather on when asked a simple yes or no question, the get a good poke. "Carefully consider the answer to this yes or no question...". "Oooh, sorry...that won't do at all..."
*ZAP*

Mr./Ms. ___________ (applies to all since they all raised their hand). Why did you say raising taxes during the Trump recession will lift America out of that recession?

Can we extend Obama Care to cover pets?
Could Obama Care be offered to sex bots if they have a high enough AI/IQ score?
Will our UBI be direct deposit or will checks be sent?

By the way, do you think that you could give me that $12,000 in cash? My concern is, and I have to, uh, check with my accountant, that this might bump me into a higher, uh, tax bracket

That's silly.

I buy milk all the time and can't tell you what it cost off the top of my head.

Would trump know? If he didn't know would that stop you from voting for him?

Better question would be, Who in congress has used money from the hush fund and would you end the fund and reveal the names?

You buy stuff when you don’t know what it cost and you’re calling me silly ?


I doubt Trump would know what milk cost either either.

Which proves my point .

I would ask are you aware the promises you make during election time may be challenged or denied by TPTB once you are elected. And knowing that do you accept you truly cannot make any promises to the masses but can only give hope that you will do your best to help the country you represent

lol I know what it cost while I'm buying it lol

I just don't know right now without getting an old recite.

I only shop for food 1 day a month.


I still think a better question would be about what they are going to do about the hush fund.

And it's the question I find silly not you.

Google that question there’s a lot of history behind it .

The way I look at it is when a politician can’t answer it. It makes people realize how far they are removed from every day Americans lives .

Not to mention that question has been around so long. If I was in politics it would be one of the first answers I looked up .

Which tells me how much they really care .

Barack Obama did not care enough to try and fix the situation.

It's pitiful that a White president is doing more for Black America than the country's first black president did.

It was not Barack Obamas job only as a mix ethnicity American president to fix all of the problems of the poor of various races and lower budgeted Negros of THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA


It is the job of the total political culture of the US to help ALL men and women of America.
