Have you seen the articles? The First Lady got caught on camera clapping? Oh my….is that REALLY an issue with some? Whether the First Lady broke a debate rule by spontaneously clapping one time?
If the nation is arguing about whether the First Lady spontaneously clapped, we have now gone off the deep end.
I don’t know if she did clap or didn’t clap — clapping when one is happy is not that far off from blinking when it comes to spontaneous reactions — but I do know it is not going to change one vote. Her clapping one time (if it happened) has zero impact on the election. It was simply a wife accidentally reacting to something her husband said. In other words, ‘so what.’
When I watch this debate or any other, I am far more concerned about the economy, healthcare, Libya and other issues than I am if a wife gets a bit excited at her husband’s debate performance.
(As an aside, I do wish my husband would stop spontaneously yelling and/or clapping at the TV when he watches NFL football. I find his spontaneous reactions sometimes a tad bit obnoxious. He says he can’t help it.)
