WATCH LIVE: Last 2020 Presidential Debate LIVE Coverage- Trump vs. Biden -10-22-20
Special pre-debate coverage begins at 6pm ET
Quasi because it will be Trump vs The Moderator, with Biden as Carping Commenter…
OTOH, hopefully the “muting” of Trump will give Biden LOTS of time to hang himself with gaffs.
Trump did two genius moves today:
1. Published his 60 Minutes interview before the network showed it.
2. Is taking Joe Biden’s nemesis (the one who exposed Biden as the “Big Guy”) to the debate hall.
Warm fuzzies all over!
The nemesis, Tony Bobulinski, just read a statement on live TV. He has three phones spanning the years in question. He will be presenting before Congress tomorrow.
Biden is toast with a capital T.
In the debate, Biden is clearly more cranked up than normal. Whatever they gave him, I want some!
That said, he’s still starting to ramble after a bit and his “logic” isnt there, just emotional hooks and talking points.
This final debate has brazenly ruled out “foreign policy” as a topic, allegedly a unilateral decision by chosen moderator Christine|Kristine Welker (sp.?) of NBC. That blatant bias has been reported (at least on the local ABC-Radio affiliate station AM 580/FM 103.7|107.3) as being a decision in deference to the “potential” corruption “scandal” involving his son Hunter Biden. Well, isn’t that just special! The scandal ain’t about Liechtstein; it’s about the increasingly militarily adventursome and adversarial Red China.
For the benefit of listeners at last, “the [debate?] commission” will have on-off control of the microphones. Which, as I’ve long believed for past debates, has not been a matter of television-audio engineering, but of debate want-to.
I’m tired of the CV segment. It’s obviously been trotted out to help the Dimowits. The bias runs deep.
Oh Gawd, Biden just went all Russia RUSSIA RUSSIA!!!
Part of me wants to watch it, but I know it’s going to be Biden and the moderator ganging up on Trump. I expect that Biden will be allowed to talk over Trump, and Trump will be cut off early every chance they get.
@E.M. Emotional hooks is all democrats have. That seems to be the liberal MO, appeals to emotion. Or, as Joe says, “truth over facts”.
The microphone discipline has made the debate actually listenable.
Biden is rambling more. Whatever drug was used has a short half life. Hour or 2 at most.
Biden just stepped on Godwin’s Law. I think that means he’s losing…
Young green haired liberal votes for Trump, and cites the laptop scandal as one of the reasons!
Biden is defending the indefensible; Obamacare.
People hated Obamacare AND their premiums and deductibles went up… way up!
Joe just said ‘for the past 3 years, during this crisis” as though the pandemic has been going on 3 years rather than 7 long months.
@H.R. My premiums went way up, along with the deductible. It was much cheaper before (Un)Affordable Care Act. I’m currently paying more, for less. And I’ve heard (but would like to see sources) that it actually caused people to loose their insurance. So then the Individual Mandate kicks in, and you get penalized. It was a tax that wasn’t a tax, and we had to pass the bill to see what was in it. And if you don’t like any of it, blame the Republicans, who unanimously voted against it.
The moderator is subtly biasing. Letting Biden run, cutting off Trump (but politely).
I’m getting real tired of “Let’s move on” and “We have a lot more topics” when Trump is making points; along with “Mr. Biden, what do you think of this Democrat talking point?”
Uh oh. Joe is reduced to c’mon man.
Aaaand… Joe responds “Russia! Russia! Russia!”
Biden just had his first Max Headroom glitch… stalled.. uh uh
Moderator for the save! “OK, let’s move on to the next question.
Oh, previously, Trump: “Who built those cages? (Repeated 6 – 8 times to silence)”
Joe – I’ll end the oil industry. (All renewables by 2025, I thought I heard? Millions of $50/hr jobs.)
Trump – We’ll frac. (Renewables don’t produce enough energy to power a competitive economy. Costs $100 trillion.)
Biden denied taking any money from a foreign country. He did not deny taking money from his son who got it from a foreign country.
@jim2 Excellent catch! Always use an intermediary.
A poll for pondering
And if Joe gets in it would be bad but having Kamala Harris with him compounds it.
Evidence of Harris’s abuse of a private citizen for immoral profits …
Trumps total approval rating took a big hit after the ACB nomination. It’s back in positive territory now!
Hey-ell! Soon after I was able to upgrade my teen “learner’s permit”, a.k.a. restricted driver’s license, to an unrestricted driver’s license [⎈], my classically Southern white and father gave me “the talk“. It ain’t an issue of race. Maybe it’s only Yankees who fail to understand the universal need for that talk from parent to teen.
Note ⎈ : Legally allowing me to drive a private passenger vehicle anytime, anywhere, carrying just about any passengers.
I was also “instructed” to always be very polite to police in particular, and never do anything fast or threatening. Then again in high school drivers ed (no longer done…) we had a segment on traffic stops too.
Want to not be shot by cops? Be polite. Keep hands visible. Ask officer “Yes sir, what would you like me to do?” Don’t move unless instructed. Never ever run or pick a fight. It ain’t hard.
Happening now at The Villages:
Rallies in The Villages, Florida on Friday, October 23rd, 2020 at 4:30 PM EDT and in Pensacola, Florida on Friday, October 23rd, 2020 at 7:00 PM CDT. These events will feature remarks from President Donald J. Trump and Republican candidates.
Exactly right. Proper parents do this, regardless of ethnicity. Act like a thug to a cop, get treated like one. So, be polite, follow instructions, keep your hands where the officer can see them at all times.
Green haired lady – you are always welcome on the right side!
I watched the debate post debate (this morning). Trump’s strategy (I have seen from several sources that it was a strategy and not an accident) was brilliant. He set the expectations low with the first debate, and then hit it out the park with the second debate. Similar to the old Rope-a-dope!
He did let Biden hang himself! So much so that virtually every answer from Biden contained a documented lie! And Biden was constantly on the defensive, even bringing up the laptop himself!
I think that is why Tapper went Ballistic. He knows Biden blew it.
Joe Biden knows in his heart that he is the only one who can truly defeat Ronald Reagan this November……Oh sorry, I meant Joe Biden knows in his heart that he is the only one who can truly defeat Joe Biden this November.
