In a cruel twist of fate, Americans were forced to make a painful choice Tuesday night, choosing between viewing the latest debate featuring Democratic presidential hopefuls or the “Bachelorette” finale.
Over on ABC, Hannah Brown was making up her mind between Tyler Cameron and Jed Wyatt. On CNN, meanwhile, 10 Democrats jockeyed for backing from voters as they sparred on health care, energy, immigration and other issues.
Some particularly talented multitaskers opted to view both at the same time. But many took to Twitter to vent at the heartless overlords at the two networks for scheduling the two to air at the exact same time:

Whoever scheduled the dem debate during the bachelorette finale obviously does not care about the millennial vote

The combination of debate tweets and The Bachelorette tweets on my timeline is a wild ride right now. I’m pretty sure Beto brought a guitar and Marianne Williamson is handing out her final rose.

How much did Trump pay for the dem debate to be on the same night as the Bachelorette so the viewing numbers would go down?

The current state of America can best be summed up by CNN placing a Democratic primary debate against The Bachelorette finale.
