Customers of the Fancy Gap Auction House were treated to a special evening Oct. 26 as “Donald Trump” and “Hillary Clinton” were on hand for a “presidential debate.”
Hillsville Mayor Greg Crowder moderated the tongue-in-cheek debate, which drew roars of laughter from the Fancy Gap crowd as the two dressed in Clinton and Trump costumes went after each other. After “Clinton” told Crowder he was “looking fine tonight,” Trump responded, “You won’t be saying that from jail.”
Crowder then asked Trump about the “three women here who Bill Clinton allegedly sexually assaulted.
“It’s horrible,” the Trump impersonator said. “They did not deserve that. Bill is horrible, just like his wife.”
But what about the women that have accused you of groping them, Crowder asked?
“They need to shut the hell up,” the Trump impersonator said, as howls of laughter rained down from the crowd.
“There’s that language again,” Clinton responded. “Children and good Christian folks have to hear his bad language all the time.”
What about this “WikiLeak thing,” Crowder asked. “Do you think it’s the Russian’s doing?”
“Yes, and right here sits Putin’s puppet,” Clinton said. “He is the cause of all of that.”
What about gun control, Crowder asked?
“Take them away and lock them out. You don’t need no guns, no bullets, maybe not even a bow and arrow because we are going to have the best country in the world when I become the first female president of this United States of America,” the Hillary impersonator said.
Crowder then asked Clinton why there are 144 Trump signs in Carroll County and only two Clinton signs.
“That is because that bunch steals mine and goes and puts them somewhere and they burn them and hide them,” Clinton responded.
Later, “Trump” said he had never been to Carroll County before, but after Wednesday evening he felt like a wall needed to be built around the Fancy Gap Auction House because it was the finest place he had ever been.
“Deplorable, all of you are deplorable,” Clinton countered.
Asked to make one closing statement, Clinton called Trump unfit to be president. Trump responded that his presidency would be “yuge” and do “yuge things.”
“And it will be hard to be president behind bars,” he said, again drawing a huge round of laughter.
