Veteran CBS News contributor Bob Schieffer, who has reported on 14 presidential elections, feels this one is so bad that we might be under God's judgement and can expect biblical plagues next.
The soon-to-be octogenarian expressed his dismay last night, according to CBS New York, saying, “I have seen a few [elections], but I’ve run out of ways to say I’ve never seen one like this. It’s as if the nation is enduring some kind of curse. What should we expect next — that it will rain frogs? I wouldn’t bet against it.”
Ardent Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton supporters would probably disagree with his Apocalyptic tone if their candidate wins.
“We tend to call every election the most important of our lifetime, but this one might well be," Schieffer continued. "Those of you who are voting for the first time, take it from me — this election is not business as usual."
He concluded, “The country seems at a turning point, but the divide over where to turn seems wider than ever. Perhaps we can at least agree on one thing — the first task of whoever is elected must be to repair the damage that’s been done by this campaign to the good name of our country."
