The mike cuts are going to look horrible and the president might just walk out if he gets too frustrated.

Doesn't have much to lose.

Trump got snipped by the mics. He looks like an old fool.

This is the era of snipping.

Everybody is going to get to see their freedom of speech decline dramatically in the coming years.

Trump is getting his clock cleaned. Sorry.

But he's the least racist person in the room!

If you look at the facts of the debate just in terms of policy, Trump has a lot more to say about the course of the nation.

Joe is just running on empty pleasantries and the "never Trump" platform.

Trump may not be "racist", but he continuously used racism as a tool to try to bully anyone who stands up to him.

Personally, I doubt he is racist, one would have to have convictions distorted, but still some sort of convictions to be a racist, and I don't think Trump has the convictions or the principles or even the moral fiber of a cloud of smoke.

If only Trump could speak in English during these debates, rather than carrying on in his habitual "Babble-onian", we might gain some clue as to WTF he's talking about!

Trump has done ok. Biden sounds like he has dementia.

Wait until the information off of Bobilinsky's phone is released.

No doubt, the FBI wants to sit on this, as they have done since last December (Exactly like the Anthony Weiner Laptop - no one has ever seen the shit on there.), but the information from Hunter's laptop is out there and the information from the phones is not exclusively with the FBI.

It's a classic pay for play, money laundering, foreign influence scheme and the truth will out. Christopher Wray and Gina Haspel are crapping their pants along with a lot of other Deep State snakes. I don't know who will win the election, but if Trump wins, look for some serious house cleaning at the so called "Intelligence Agencies" in addition to indictments, prosecutions, many, many plea deals and subsequent incarcerations.

The bullshit and lies that the media will desperately and frantically put our over the next 12 days will be hysterical, sonic wails of terror in the hopes of stopping Trump at any cost.

The moderator interrupted Trump 30 times versus interrupting Biden only twice. Pretty lame on her part.

I regrettably voted for Obama, but the Democrats have gone off the deep end. They’ve become the party of lies, lawlessness, very late-term abortions, violence destroying once great American cities, high taxes on our paychecks to pay for socialist wet dreams, weak military, open borders, free healthcare for illegal aliens at taxpayer expense, defunding the police, sanctuary cities, taking away guns, sending $1.7 billion of our taxpayer dollars on pallets to Iranian radical leaders so they can kill more of our troops, packing the Supreme Court, and more idiotic ideas. No thanks.
