Supreme Court, Covid-19 epidemic, economy: in Houston, supporters of the president keep the faith. And continue to appreciate his provocative style.
Britney watches the rat race unfolding on the screen from afar: “I never voted. Not interested !" She wears a floral mask, a nose piercing and a Native American arrow tattooed on her arm. Britney is 24 and a waitress at Butler House, an outdoor bar and restaurant in the northern suburbs of Houston. She was unemployed for over three months because of the coronary artery disease. "I really struggled," she says. She received a check for $ 1,200 as part of the massive support plan voted in the spring by Congress. And was waiting for the following who never came. She suspects, without being sure, that it is because of a disagreement in the House of Representatives in Washington, more than 2,300 kilometers away.
Hannity Suggests No Moderator for Future Debates: 'Let Them Have at It' (Video)
Most of the pundits who appeared on Fox News after Tuesday's presidential debate between Joe Biden and Donald Trump had little but raves for Trump's performance. Sean Hannity, for example, said he actually liked that Trump constantly interrupted Biden and argued with moderator Chris Wallace, saying it was "real." "One thing I've concluded at the end of tonight is, it's basically, you're gonna get a gladiator warrior fighter in Donald Trump,""One thing I've concluded at the end of tonight is, it's basically, you're gonna get a gladiator warrior fighter in Donald Trump," Hannity said.
Even though the epidemic peak now appears to have been passed in Houston, Texas continues to report nearly 7,000 new cases and nearly 100 deaths every day. That doesn't stop Britney from railing against the restrictions: "I'm sick of wearing a mask. Why do I have to wear one all the time because I'm doing the service, when those who come to eat or drink here don't have that obligation? " Politically, she continues, "the period is already tough enough, we do not need to launch for four years with a new president". The young woman hesitates, then ends up launching: "This year, I vote to re-elect Trump.""Someone who speaks the truth"
Janeth, 34, dark robe, steps forward to take a picture of the gigantic screen. "Here, we all love Trump," she says. The media will tell you otherwise. They lie, they have their own agenda, no one believes them anyway. " Of half Mexican, half Irish descent, Janeth knew the debate would be broadcast, but not Chris, 32, who is accompanying her on Tuesday night. Close-fitting polo shirt, muscular arms and tattoos, he works in petroleum. She in digital. They laugh in unison with Donald Trump's projections and applaud when he says he took advantage of the laws passed by Joe Biden to optimize his taxes. “We got so low that we needed someone other than a politician. Which is a little raw, even if it's a bitterness. Someone real, who knows the economy. We needed someone "who has"! " Chris assures us. Who concludes, lucid and uninhibited: "Trump has been the same asshole (sic) since his first day in the presidency, and people like that."
Presidential Debate Quickly Goes Off The Rails As Donald Trump Repeatedly Interrupts Joe Biden
The first presidential debate between Joe Biden and Donald Trump quickly became contentious, as Trump repeatedly interrupted Biden. “Will you shut up, man?” Biden said to Trump. “This is so unpresidential.” Then Biden added, “Keep yapping, man.” Moderator Chris Wallace tried at points to stop Trump from talking, at one point telling him, “I am the moderator in this debate and I would like you to let me ask this question.” Wallace’s first question was about the Supreme Court and Trump’s decision to move forward with Amy Coney Barrett. But it veered off into another topic, healthcare.
Bryan, in his sixties, is the boss of Butler House. As before a match, he applauds during the attacks and dodges of his favorite. According to him, “Trump owes nothing to anyone. He's not really a Republican, otherwise he would have Romney or Bush behind him. " The difference between the incumbent president and his Democratic rival? “Biden has been in high political circles for fifty years, and he hasn't changed a thing. I thought Obama would reunite the United States, but he missed the chance and created divisions and exploited racism. "
He wholeheartedly approves the choice of Amy Coney Barrett, the judge appointed by Donald Trump to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court. And disregards the anger of the Democrats, who accuse the Republicans of speeding up, without waiting for the election result, as they did in 2016 by blocking the judge appointed by Barack Obama. “If they could, the Democrats would have put a judge on their feet. He has the right, he is right to name it, “sweeps Bryan.

Like many Trump supporters in Texas, the boss eventually slipped off track. Whether it is to talk about "rotten politicians", or to advance the craziest conspiracy theories. Face marked by wrinkles, the sixty-year-old assures us that “the American parties are puppets in the hands of the financial powers. It is the big families like the Rockefellers who create the division in this country, to better control. Antifa, Black Lives Matter, Covid have been instrumentalized by large families ”. The proof, he adds, would be on Youtube or Facebook.
Not far away, Dade, a retired septuagenarian with a white mustache and a bald head, returns to the Supreme Court. This peaceful-looking grandfather comes alive when told about Judge Amy Coney Barrett, mother of seven children, two of whom are adopted: "She's a staunch Christian, she's against the killing of babies. Which is normal! ” Like many on each side, and for very different reasons, he considers this year to be the most important election of his life. “Donald Trump is an envoy from God,” he trumpets. And no longer this man with questionable morals, two divorces and obscene comments, which Christians have long condemned. "That was before."
Hearing Dade's words, Barbara, in her fifties, discreetly shakes her head in disbelief. Employee of a federal police agency, she confides that she will vote for Joe Biden, and says she no longer recognizes the United States. “My God, where is this country going?” She says in a whisper.
