Pretty blatant.

I tried watching it, but I got to the fourteen second mark and just gave up.

In tonight’s presidential debate the President said the “Portland Sheriff” supports him. As the Multnomah County Sheriff I have never supported Donald Trump and will never support him.

I think THE MOST frightening part of the entire night was telling his supports to "Go into the polls and watch".  That was a call to arms IMHO.  I think there will be violence, hopefully it remains isolated.  But I'm not hopeful.

It's a given.  First dipshit with a MAGA hat, "I'd rather be Russian than Democrat" and an attitude is going to get called on his shit.   It'll go south from there.

There should be shock collars attached to each of the debaters, and the moderator should also have a "mute" button installed on their microphones.

America Calls Upon The Only Man Capable Of Moderating The Next Debate Between Biden And Trump

springer.jpg

The first of the 2020 presidential debates between President Trump and his opponent Joe Biden took place today, leaving the entire planet now contemplating their faith in the future of human civilisation.

The death rattle of democracy featured a chaotic series of extremely personal exchanges and name-calling between the two nominees, as the collapse of late stage capitalism reared its ugly head for all to see.

Throughout the 90 minute debate, Trump repeatedly spoke over his Democratic rival, leaving Biden with no choice but to tell The President to ‘shut up, man’ several times.

The exhausted moderator, Chris Wallace of Fox News struggled to maintain control as he led the candidates to topics like the Supreme Court, the economy, the coronavirus pandemic and more.

To no avail, Wallace also repeatedly reprimanded the President for speaking over his opponent and disregarding the rules both sides had agreed to.

While no one can deny that the moderator had done his very best to rein in the petulance and interruptions throughout the debate, it soon became evident that he was well and truly out of his depth in moderating the two men.

This has left the American people will no option but to bring in the big guns moving forward.

The only man capable of successfully maintaining control of such a low brow debate.

Jerry Springer.

Debuting on American TV screens in 1991, The Jerry Springer Show was unsuccessful in ratings and audience engagement in its first seasons due to its focus on core political issues – much like the American elections of yesteryear.

And much like the 2016 and 2020 Presidential campaigns, the talkshow underwent an overhaul of the structure which by the mid-1990’s led to a show filled with controversial topics – such as sexual taboo and adultery, profanity, domestic disputes and culture war debates.

Also similar to American politics, many of their nation’s community leaders have condemned The Jerry Springer Show as “trash TV”.

However despite such criticisms, the show remained popular until the end of it’s 26-year-run in in 2018.

After nearly two years in retirement, Jerry Springer will return to adjudicating low brow arguments in the next two presidential debates on October 15 and 22 in Miami, Florida, and Nashville, Tennessee, respectively.

Might not stop Trump ranting, but at least nobody would hear him.

No way he'd agree to that though. He couldn't do what he does best - lie. What else can you call it when he agrees to a set of rules then ignores them.

These 'debates' are a waste of time really. Those who support Trump aren't going to stop because he's a loud-mouthed rude bully, they think those are the positive features. And those who are supporting Biden are just confirmed in their disgust of Trump. The fence-sitters, well, what can one say about them at this stage of the shit-show.

Teach both of them what those who are paying attention desire....

Wire them both up RE idea of Stanley Milgram experiment, and give them both an electrical shock after every question; relative  amplitude based upon real time social response to their response to question.

Both are in large part clueless. Select lessor  of two evils again....Bah!

If 'twere who's the lessor twat, would be settled, but for many, the $$ complicate things.

Deal with the devil you (likely incorrectly think you)  know, or presume that any path other than current could only be less crappy.

Helluva choice...

How could the moderator not have failed? pulled the plug and walked away?

Next one. Mute button. Incredible as it may seem, it's the only way you'll get both him and Biden to have 2 clear minutes.

It would be interesting to see the wind taken out of someone's sails when his only weapon, sledging, sneering, bullying, talking over and interrupting are taken away.

Biden won that debate hands down. Neither had much content,( well Biden had some if you listened carefully over under the noise, nothing earth shattering, but reasoned) but no one can say that Biden is mentality incompetent now.

So that's the only goal scored in this match.

I watched all of it.

Trump is still the abused three year old he was decades ago emotionally.

How about a Push-to-TALK button, given to each candidate with a timer on it. Each one gets say...45 minutes each in a 90 minute debate.

If you want your mic on, you have to push the button, and a timer deducts seconds for every minute it's pushed down. When you run out of seconds, you are done speaking for the debate, PERIOD. But if two buttons are on at once the only one who gets time charged is the one who isn't supposed to be talking.

So if Trump yammers over Biden for the first hour and uses up his 45 minutes...well I guess Joe gets to finish the last half hour by himself while Trump stews and fumes.

45 minutes will give enough slop, with the moderator talking, so they can still shout over each other for a couple of minutes and still finish the debate.

 

If Trump can't act like an adult, you need these kind of controls to try to make the exchange even remotely meaningful.

It's a nice fantasy, but it will never happen.

Trump gravely wounded his chances of winning the undecided votes, each candidate has his base in his hip pocket, it’s a good thing folks in 2020 have short memories and that is not a Biden reference

I agree with the assessment of disappointing.  But, I was hoping for a more detailed analysis.  Your comment seems to suggest it was balanced in terms of how each behaved.

For the record, I felt Biden's mention of the President being a "clown" was unacceptable - while understandable.  Of course, I have a friend who admires President Trump's incessant and juvenile name-calling and he thought the use of the word "clown" was the worst thing ever.

President Trump acted as I expected him to - like a cornered bully.  He knows he can't debate on policy, so he "debates" on personality.  He was a caricature of himself.

Last night Trump, through his actions, essentially conceded the election and is now moving clearly towards and attempt at a coup. He knows he can not win a fair election and now has stopped trying. Instead he is counting on being able to leverage a violent minority into a dictatorship. Make no mistake, that is where this is headed. There is a greater chance that we have lost our country in 2 months than Trump winning an actual election, it is now all about whether there are enough decent judges and politicians to stop what is clearly an attempt at a coup. He is not calling on the Proud Boys for their votes, he is calling on them to stop everyone else from voting. We are facing the very real prospect of civil war and the end of the USA. Everyone who is sane and cares about the country needs to stop treating what is happening as if it is part of a heated election, and call it out for what it is, a blatant attempt to overthrow the government we have had since the end of the Revolutionary War.

I posted the transcript. There's no doubt about Trump being the main offender. It's there in black and white who did most of the interupting and shit flinging.

Mind you, it's telling that Biden just seemed unable to resist sinking to trumps level on occasion. He's have looked a lot stronger if he'd resisted the urges to compete with Trump on slurs and looked Presidential instead.

I can't imagine for one minute Obama behaving like this.

He'd have adopted the expression of one looking with faint distain at the mouthings of an oik.

Wallace was pathetic. I'm really disappointed in him and those weak jocular admonishments. 

If he'd sounded like a judge and sternly told Trump to behave we might have had some real entertainment from the made up clown.

Probably too frightening for people to seriously process. That's how most coups succeed.

Their local, state and federal LE are enablers?  Cite that please.

If you’ve paid attention even the FBI is concerned about white supremacists infiltrating local PDs. I posted the FBI report yesterday.

OFGS...Do you believe the fine people on both sides lie too?

Dude, I watched the debate. Everyone, including the Proud Boys, understood that he was showing his support for them. You don't tell Nazis to "Stand by" if you are opposed to Nazis.

Last night Trump, through his actions, essentially conceded the election and is now moving clearly towards and attempt at a coup.

Read an interesting article the other day where the author said that Ohio was key to avoiding this scenario.  Republican Governor and Secretary of State so Trump can't claim doctored ballots.

If Trump tries such a thing, some GOP Senators are going to have to put on their big boy pants during the lame duck session and impeach his ass.

Biden also called Trump a racist, wrt who could go low I think they fought to a draw. The Lincoln-Douglas debate it was not.

Trump IS a racist. So no harm no foul.

There is a huge problem with white supremacists in the Military as well.  Jeffie is either willfully turning a blind eye or is sympathetic to that message.

Troubling.

Exactly. Are you busy the next four years?? We could use a POTUS

I think that a randomly chosen PA denizen would make a better POTUS than either of these guys. You take a chance that you might get BB or Dog but that would still be better than Trump. There are many intelligent, thoughtful people here and your chance of picking one of those would be better.

What is needed now is not just for everyone to vote, although that is critical, but also for folks to wake up to the very real threat of a coup and to call on every elected representative they have to disavow his attempts to take over the USA through force by his racist militia followers.

What do you think "Stand back and stand by" means dog?

It's rather an unusual expression.

Considering any normal person would have said something along the lines of  "step aside" or just "stand back" without the "stand by"

Don't you think?

Well, long before that, really. Nobody who is paying attention has had any doubt, for years.

But Trump made it very obvious last night, the white supremacists are his boys and he's proud of them.

I  think made it pretty dam clear that he'll use the SCOTUS if he loses the count.

With the Proud boys ilk to back up dissent.

My money is on the “Not Fucking Around Anymore” crowd if it’s a face off with the proud boys.

Too many pages accumulated due to time zone difference, managed to read just this one. Curious to  know if antbody brought out G B Shaw’s famous quote about never wrestling with pigs

To me, the one positive is Biden proved he’s tough enough to stand up to the bully - that was the unspoken fear

I liked the part where Biden walked over to Trump's podium with $750 in his hand and said, "Let me pick up your taxes for next year, Donald."

Wait . . . did that actually happen?! I could not bring myself to watch the shit show. Now i have to go search Youtube.
