US Presidential Debate view party

Going to be in Budapest during the 10/19 US Presidential debate.  Was wondering whether there was going to be a viewing party somewhere.

People have parties to watch that stuff?

They also have drinking games debatedrinking.com/#

It can be fun, you meet new people.  Remember being in San Miguel Adende, Mex for the GW Bush election night with the local Democratic Club.  It was fun being around people to commiserate with than watching in hotel room. 

OMG
I can think of far better things to do with strangers in a hotel room than watch two useless loonies who are only in it for cash play stupid word games on TV.

Some people have a different view on this than you do. Many people are interested in how those who may run their country act in a debate. Politics and diplomacy are often word games, so it matters to them. And watching a debate can bring up more interesting topics of conversations with other people than, say, just seeing a movie together.

And the POTUS makes $400,000 a year. Someone with equivalent skills makes orders of magnitude more in the private sectors. Nobody does this only for the cash.

I am 100% not interested in voting this year.
What I dislike is everyone I know in the US who is on FB has something to say about each candidate.
One side is for Trump and the other for Hillary.
I would personally rather see Micky Mouse in office then either of them.
I swear out of over 300 million people those two clowns are the best we can offer the public?
What a scam, what a crying shame!
I would only vote on legalizing pot and locking up animal abusers to the full extent of the law.
Voting in this election is like choosing to be shot or hanged, nothing good will come of either of these clowns in office.

It strikes me America has a choice between a useless twit out for cash and power and an incompetent twit out for cash and power.

I'd sooner watch water boil whilst having toothpicks forced under my fingernails.

Still, have fun.

From what I've seen, like a pair of nut jobs that escaped from an asylum.
A man who seems to want sex with his daughter seems to be a bad idea, and a woman stupid enough to send top secret messages using unsecured communications is hardly better.

One has a slightly better haircut.

To be clear; I support neither, but I do have equal contempt for both.

Thanks for your input.

I think we all got it. An English Expat living in Indonesia will not be coming to a US Presidential debate party in Budapest Hungary.  :cool:

Think happy thoughts.
My shock and surprise that anyone would want to watch two useless idiots arguing  is likely to have increased the thread's views, meaning vast hordes of people will to invite you to these popular parties.

I think this is a great meet up idea. Expat meet ups are always good and should be encouraged in a positive way by everyone.

Sadly I will not be in Budapest on Monday.

And sorry you have not gotten any positive replies from anyone here indicating they can participate.

But if you got positive feedback elsewhere, feel free to post when and where the meet up will be. Some here may decide at the last minute to attend.

And maybe post it as a new thread, so people do not have to sift through the above commentary.  :D  :top:
