The Onion: “Town Hall Attendees Still Standing Patiently Waiting For Their Questions To Be Answered”


obama-romney3HEMPSTEAD, NY-More than 15 hours after the conclusion of the second presidential debate, sources confirmed members of the town-hall audience who asked questions last night are still standing in the now-empty hall at Hofstra University, note cards in hand, patiently waiting for the candidates to actually provide them with answers.

“President Obama, during the Democratic National Convention in 2008, you stated you wanted to keep AK-47s out of the hands of criminals. What has your administration done or planned to do to limit the availability of assault weapons?” said debate attendee Nina Gonzalez, who asked her question almost one day ago, has yet to receive a straight answer, and, along with 10 other audience members, told reporters she is hoping Obama and Mitt Romney return to Long Island at some point to address her topic of concern as opposed to talking about something else entirely.

At press time, the audience members were reportedly all still standing there, waiting.

  1. is this from the onion? because the onion is a spoof newspaper. none of their articles are true… lots of foreign newspapers reprint their articles and face a lot of ridicule. So, this article is simply poking fun at the candidates’ skirting of the issues and vaguely non-answering the questions.
