    What a brawl.
    I am no Trump fan but he got the better of Biden who showed his cognitive insecurities.
    If Biden is the next president he will last only a matter of months before Harris is appointed.
    Joe will be sent of to a medical facility for dementia patients.

      What questions will you ask him when he arrives ?
      Diversion of course from the real crazy one in the room…
      At least Biden got to say what plenty have wanted to for 4 years
      ‘Will you shut up, man?’

          I don’t think you quite realise what the phrase implies. Biden’s second mistake was bringing up his sons military career. That allowed Trumpy to tee off.

  3. It was one of the worst debates I’ve seen.

    Biden was a bit weak at times although finished quite strongly. The problem is that many people may have given up watching by then. Biden didn’t make any major mistakes or gaffs, and may have assured some he can remain composed under pressure, but I don’t know how swing voters will have seen him.

    Trump as at his worst. He has become accustomed to running the show, including media conferences, and didn’t like being told what to do and not do. He looked riled and uncomfortable. He will probably have impressed supporters who think being a blustering bullshitter shows strength, but I’d be surprised if he gained much support from independent voters.

    I didn’t get to watch it all.

    Big picture stuff. On one side of the screen I saw one of them suggest that people needed to work together, the united states, rather than be divided. That would see progress for all.

    The chap on the other side crowed of a crowning glory: appointing more judges than ever to the courts.

    The contrast was stark.

    “Mr. Trump did not make it easy. In a brute-force style, the president flouted the agreed-upon ground rules and refused to allow Mr. Biden his two minutes to respond to questions, leaving Mr. Wallace yelping at one point, “Let him answer!”

      The president to charged with protecting all Americans… that’s what he did, protecting them from Joe Biden.

        The voters make that choice not Trump….he can spend more time off the golf course and protecting the people from Covid.
        A despicable man and his cheerleaders especially those who don’t have a stake in the election but look on.
        Give it 3 years and Trump will be shuffling into court like Weienstein did…a deservedly broken man

    Debating a schoolyard bully is a waste of time – Lock him up.
