    Trumps own campaign posted this, the ongoing nonsensical dichotomy between his supporters lauding him as a tough-guy and hard-hitting counter puncher and the self-entitled cry-baby who constantly whines he's a victim:

    The debate was a perfect example of this:

    It was a shit show, and while Biden did try to address the issues, Trump was just in full on spoiler mode.

    It realy was not going to be easy for Biden, keeping calm and trying not to rise to Trumps baiting made him come over as lackluster.

    I normally respect your opinion pickel, but think you are too harsh on Biden. This CNN report is much better news.

    they've been saying that biden was on PEDs (?!?) and wearing an earpiece because they knew (or at least were very concerned) that biden was going to perform capably.
    their tactics really are very obvious to anyone who's been paying attention the last four years.

    their internal polling has to be showing them that they can't win the center......so they have no choice to but to gin up the base. if they thought it would get more MAGAts to vote, trump would have taken a blowtorch to the stage.

    IMO we can expect only more of this chaos and incitement to riot in the weeks to come....before and after the election....before and after (hopefully) biden's inauguration. this doesn't end until trump's in jail or in the dirt.

    It was really so much worse than I thought. Trump was a bigger ass than I imagined he would be. He called out to the Proud Boys to “stand back and stand by.” Disgusting man.

    I hope, if there is a next debate, that the rules will be for the contestants to be at the far opposite corners of a large stage and moderator can turn off the microphone of the contestant who is not addressed. Let Trump stand in a corner and shout without a mic.

    1. biden's campaign has confirmed to axios that he still intends to participate in the next two debates.
    2. i agree completely about the microphones....but you know this is going to be his next excuse..."they were cutting out my microphone. the media is very unfair to me"

    Where's Sir Robin Day when you need him? The USA need a similar chair to control these debates or they are worthless, except for proving how dysfunctional Trump is.

    I watched the debate (if you can call it that) last night. trump did not adhere to any of the rules he agreed too, ignored the moderator, talked all the time, even when Biden was trying to answer a question. Afterwards it was described as a "Shit show" on national TV. Half way through I had seen all I needed to see and turned it off. The fact that this waste of skin of a president has even 33% support (one out of three) is more troubling to me thay trump.
    Frankly I am embarrassed to be American. It was not the " debate" that was a "Shit show" , the debate was a reflection of where we are as a country.
    It is the US that has become a "shit show"
    I always said, "I will never sell my US home, because some day I might need to return, especially when I get older, and I need health care) . The house is going up for sale as soon as covid is over. $280,000 will buy me plenty of health insurance, the only thing I need to resolve is the pe-existing conditions issue with insurance.
    Life is too short to spend it watching "a shit show"
    The sooner you fall behind, the more time you have to catch up.

    Steve Scully - Wikipedia

    he's smart, calm and knowledgeable.....but if the rules aren't changed, trump will bulldoze him too.....however, it's a 'town hall' format, so in theory that should rein him in a little bit.

    US members will know scully as the guy who does the call in show on C-SPAN.

    i have a certain amount of sympathy for wallace....but at some point people need to wake up and realize that this guy is never going to follow norms and standards.
    safeguards need to be designed just for him.
    they should have known that they might need to cut his microphone.

    Just the fact the 4 out of 10 think there was a debate says something IMO.

    I’ll bet Trump didn’t even raise one new voter for himself.

    Me too.
    What I'd like to see, if there is a next debate, for Bidens team to insist that one of the conditions must be, and Trump must agree, and the moderator must confirm with him on air, that if he interrupts or talks over Biden while Biden's speaking then they reserve the right to pull the plug and walk out. How to make it not look like Biden chickened out will be the trick.
    The mainstream media will be okay but fox and co will cut it and edit it and leave out the bit where Trump agreed to the condition and make it look like Biden wimped out.
    If we stop testing right now wed have very few cases, if any. Donald J Trump.

    Yes. They must be able to shut off the mic. He was just rude, obnoxious and belligerent. I wish Biden had called him out more.

    Biden handled this infantile as best as anyone could: he spoke directly to the American people. The tactics of the belligerent sleazeball and criminal will not change in the next two "debates". He only knows how to insult and lie. Biden needs to completely ignore him while shaking his head and address the audience with truth and proposals to get the US back on the rails.

    As for the sleazeball, his crime syndicate and his financiers who are all in on an attempted coup in January, there is only one sentence - life imprisonment.

    Just finished watching the debate. It was like watching a road accident.

    Trump seems to a be genuinely dangerous president who should be removed from power, but Joe came across like Grampa from the Simpsons.

    I think crazy Bernie night have been a better bet with a moderate off-sider to balance the ticket a bit.

    The Democrats could do with electing someone 20-25 years younger than Joe Biden. He looks like he's just risen from his coffin in the photo Ant posted...

    I wouldn't put any stock in that it's from the Trump campaign and highly likely manipulated to make him look bad.

    Certainly wouldn't be the first time they've done that this election -- pictures, film, audio they manipulate and edit it all.

    Sleepy Joe did stutter a lot in the debate. He seemed weak and had to look up his notes in order to make a point.


    I thought this was funny:

    Half an hour into the first presidential debate, President Donald Trump took a jab at former Vice President Joe Biden's intelligence and accused him of forgetting the name of his alma mater in what has been a debate filled with personal attacks.
    While lambasting Trump's response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Biden said that "a lot more people are going to die unless he gets a lot smarter, a lot quicker."
    "Did you use the word smart?" Trump retorted from across the stage, claiming Biden graduated the "lowest" in his class. "Don't ever use the word smart with me, don't ever use that word."
    "Oh give me a break," Biden shot back. Records from Syracuse Law School show that Biden graduated 76th in a class of 85.
    "There's nothing smart about you, Joe," Trump said. "In 47 years, you've done nothing."
    Trump also seized on the opportunity to further the attacks he has made on Biden's mental fitness to serve as president.
    "You said you went to Delaware State, but you forgot the name of your college," Trump said. "You didn't go to Delaware State."
