This is about the only way Trump can come back. If he messes this up it's probably very close to over. Will he do well or will Biden really hammer him about everything that has gone on in the past year? I guess we'll have to find out!

Can we get the 2012 VeeP debate biden.
I can't be the only one that is hoping for more character or engagement from the guy, don't pull no punches! People get the idea he is too restrained and patient, or will be hammered on by Trump, and I know that can't (or won't) be the case.

This is going to be one big joke.

As if we can expect any of the guys to make decent, substantial arguments about political topics or issues.

Probably somewhat from Biden, but from Trump ? LOL.

80-90% will be attacks or other meaningless talking points.

The debate takes place at 3 AM Central European Time which means that me and my friends are going to get drunk beforehand and then watch the thing and I've been excited to do that for a week now

Imo, this is the biggest moment of Bidenís entire campaign. If he delivers or at least gets a ďpassing gradeĒ, I think itíll be mostly smooth sailing potentially till Election Day. If not...

I think heíll be fine tho. I know he and his team has been practicing heavily for months and  its not hard to know what Trump will try and throw at him. Also, for the most part, heís came up clutch in his biggest moments so far (Sanders debate, VP announcement, convention speech, his primetime TV interviews, the CNN townhall)

Tonight, 60 million people will see how old and frail Biden looks . That will make a difference. People donít watch debate for substance, to get actual insight. They donít listen to what the candidates say. They go by impression, and the way a candidate looks is often critical. It shouldnít be this way, but it is.

Trump is 3 years younger than Biden.

Also, Biden pays his taxes.

I'm ignoring the rest of your comment but only adding that it's gonna be more than 60. 84 million tuned into the first debate in 2016. With streaming added in this time, I think it would be higher than that.

Yes, but the vast majority of Americans also know that he can easily check in at the local retirement home after he gets elected and that the younger Kamala can then take over.

As if democrats had seen that and even then decided to choose him as their candidate. Also, I think you have to be almost blind to think that Trump looks better than Biden. Trump doesn't even look like a human being, everything about him is disgusting. He's fat, his hair is fake, he uses more make up than RuPaul and he's amorphous.

Will Dementia Joe just drool and babble the whole night?

Will Drooliní Joe even know where he is or WHO he is?

Will Babbliní Joe fall asleep on the stage?

Will Sleepy Joe try to sniff Donald Trump?

Will Sniffing Joe suffer a series of strokes?

Can Drugged-Up Joe beat a stable genius?

And if he does win, will China Joe agree to a drug test?



Answers tonight.

Answers tonight.



Will Trump ever pay his taxes?

Why do I pay more taxes than Donald Trump?

Is Trump really a billionaire?

Who does Donald Trump owe $421,000,000 to?  (This payment is due in just four years.)

Why does Trump need to set aside $70,000 for his hair maintenance?

Is Trump actually bald?

Why are other successful businesspeople able to pay lots of taxes but Trump cannot?

Why did Donald Trump try to shame Barack Obama about the taxes the former president paid when Trump himself has paid a lot less?

Why does Trump say that paying your taxes is patriotic if he doesn't pay any himself?

Why do so many of Trump's businesses lose money?
