Stand back and stand by, poll watchers. Like seriously, we're in for some serious #### for the next month.

Easy. One guy was a sane, rational human being who remained about as composed as one could possibly be in such an insane situation.

The other guy is a lying, idiotic, reprehensible piece of s**t.

Haha!! So true. These debates mean nothing. Everybody has dug in and chosen their team. The debates are a formality at this point.

I think this debate was probably good for Biden in the 'no clear winner benefits the frontrunner' sort of mentality. Can't imagine Trump won any undecideds, and probably did what was necessary to fire up both his own and Biden's bases.

I'd say Trump was better early, Biden looked a little flustered by the interruptions, but realized part way through that if he didn't argue with Trump, Trump couldn't help arguing with Wallace instead, which made Trump look far worse, and instead Biden directed more toward the audience at home.

It's hard to pick a 'best moment' for anyone in this debate, but Biden's worst moment IMO was when he let himself get backed into a totally unnecessary corner on law enforcement, and Trump had both the attacks on Hunter and the refusing to condemn white supremacy and also refusing to tell his supporters to respect the vote-counting process.


I said before the debate that regardless of the debate itself, the debate would serve as a moment of reluctant resignation for on-the-fence Trump supporters, and result in a modest bump in the polls for him. But I'm not sure he did the bare minimum necessary to cash in those easy fence-sitters here. I'm now thinking there's no movement in the polls as a result.

I genuinely swear that I heard the following exchange at one point...

Biden: "... and #2"
Trump: "You're a #2!"

Am I imagining that?

Prediction Trump will find a way to have more mail in ballots sent in than there are voters in the USA. Then declare the election a fraud and use a presidential order to institute martial law which will be called unconstitutional and you will have the start of a new type of civil war. Hope I'm wrong but after this debate I could see it devolving to that.

Democracy advocate groups use AI deepfakes of Putin and Kim Jong Un to encourage voting.

Closer to the election I'm sure we will see a flood of Biden deepfakes to try and create a scandal of some kind

Proud Boys: Stand back and stand by.

This is among the most chilling words I've ever heard come out of Trump. Those right-wing nutjobs just got energized tonight. Unreal for the president to encourage them.

Did you see the Project Veritas video from Minneapolis? Looks like the Dems might not be above the voter fraud game.

Trump was Trump.

Biden was not statesman like tonight. Calling the POTUS a clown (even if he is) and calling him a racist was beneath the office of the Presidency.

Major Garrett of CBS said that Biden prepared for this debate the same way he prepared for his debate in 1990 when he, a female opponent, and a male libertarian opponent were debating and he ignores the female opponent in his responses instead focusing on the male opponent and camera much like he did tonight with Chris Wallace and the camera. He didn't want to be "thrown off his game in either debate."

Major Garrett is on a panel with 3 other women right now.

Wow.

Joy Reid is unwatchable.

I am a huge fan of Rachel Maddow.
