20% of Gerts-Goers Prefer Trump Presidency over Tokyo Thursday

During the Bull & Bear’s viewing party for the third presidential debate, I bothered viewers at Gerts with two questions:

  1. “What was your favorite election moment?”, and 
  2. “Would you rather go to ‘Tokyo Thursdays’, or witness Donald Trump’s Presidency ?” 

Here’s how people responded:

 

Jackie, Political Science, U2

Favorite memory: “Mike Pence trying and failing to substantiate Trump’s claims.”

Tokyo Thursdays or a Trump Presidency?: “Tokyo Thursday.  At least there, I have control over the walls I put up.”

 

Safi, Economics, U3

Favorite memory: “When Trump clinched the nomination.”

Tokyo Thursdays or a Trump Presidency?: “Donald Trump.  Tokyo Thursday sucks… I’m not in first year.”

 

Antoine, Economics & History, U3

Favorite memory: “When Bernie Sanders won Ohio.  I remember thinking, ‘it’s gonna happen!!’ But alas, here I am drinking a beer at Gerts.”

Tokyo Thursdays or a Trump Presidency?: “I actually live right behind Tokyo Thursday, so I’m basically there every Thursday, I just have to open the window.”

 

Justin, Economics, U3

Favorite memory: “Opening speech of Trump’s campaign… you know what I’m talking about.”

Tokyo Thursdays or a Trump Presidency?: “Neither. Both are equally detestable.”

Favorite memory: “The fact that 11 other republicans couldn’t beat this imbecile.  How embarrassing.”

Tokyo Thursdays or a Trump Presidency?: “Tokyo Thursday, because at least I would still be able to enter the US.”

Tokyo Thursdays or a Trump Presidency?: “I don’t see how the two are mutually exclusive.”

Could not identify a specific moment, but had this to say: “Trump is a fighter, a barroom brawler.  He’s going against the odds by fighting the Clintons. No heavy-weight fighter compares to Donald Trump.”
