The real east side wants to secede from the third district, Ellington is a racist pig who does nothing outside of his neighborhood off of prospect. This clown doesn’t even know where the entire 3rd district is.

Chris Wallace just basically did his job. Ask questions and challenge statements with follow up questions. And Trump came off looking like the dumbfuck he is.

Was the interview fake news Trumptards? How we ruling on this one? Is Wallace just another hack? How do those boots taste?

At least Trump has the mental capacity to debate, unlike brain dead Biden.

^^hahahahahahahaha! Really Covefee??? LOL?? The dipshit can't even count backward from a 100 by seven? LOL! Hahahahahaha! Hamberder party!! LOL!!!!

Withhold judgment until Biden grants an interview that isn't pre-programmed and consists of other than powder puff questions. If he ever does - his handlers would be foolish to allow it.

^^but those cognitive questions were very hard! I bet you couldn't answer one of them the correctly. You have to identify an elephant and everything!!! LOL!!!! Hahahahahahaha!

You fucking Trumptards. Your guy makes a fucking ass of himself every time he speaks. Biden doesn't have to do shit. Just keep giving Trump rope.

Fuck the debate too. If Trump wants to debate, release the tax returns so we can see how much money he launders. Joe released his.

Reality Speaker said...

I don't give a shit how much money he has, nor what he does with it.......

Ask the same question of (Mad Max) Maxine Waters, Peelousy, Hillarious, Nattler, Shitz, and if possible John POS Lewis, naw a dead multi-millionaire who represented a district in which about 25% were at the poverty level.

So, take your red herring and shove it up your ass.

You fucking Trumptards. Hopeless fucking boot lickers.

12:41, "whataboutism" is a made up name for the benefit of people like you who can't cope with informal logic. What you call whataboutism is actually the "tu quoque fallacy." But it's only a fallacy if the tu quoque statement is intended to prove or disprove the point at issue. If on the other hand it is intended to show the hypocrisy or intellectual dishonesty of the opponent, it's quite proper.

Or is trying to make you understand the tu quoque fallacy akin to discoursing on quantum theory with a cranberry?

Actually "whatadoutism" is what's known as distraction, but if you want to explain tu quoque to a cranberry, that's your business.
