Presidential and Vice Presidential debates 2020


First presidential debate: Tuesday, Sept. 29

Location: Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland. (This was originally scheduled to be held at the University of Notre Dame. Notre Dame withdrew, saying the fact that it would have to limit student attendance and volunteer opportunities because of the pandemic erases the reason to host a debate at the university.)

Time: 9-10:30 p.m. Eastern

Where to watch: The Washington Post will have an uninterrupted live stream of the debate. It will also be carried on most major news stations.

Moderator: Chris Wallace, anchor of “Fox News Sunday”

Details: The debate will be 90 minutes long and have no commercial breaks. It will be divided into six 15-minute segments that Wallace has chosen. They are: 1) The Trump and Biden records; 2) The Supreme Court; 3) Covid-19; 4) the economy; 5) race and violence in cities; 6) the integrity of the election.

How each candidate is preparing: Trump isn’t doing much. He has not held a mock debate and has no plans to, relying instead on his experience as president and testing out attacks with his advisers. Biden is doing more traditional prep. He will fact-check the president when he feels it’s warranted, but he’s more focused on not getting pulled into a personal fight on issues like family that could make him appear angry onstage. The Washington Post reports Trump plans to go after Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, which has proven to get the vice president riled up on the campaign trail. “I hope I don’t get baited into a brawl with this guy, because that’s the only place he’s comfortable,” Biden said at a fundraiser, adding: “I know how to handle bullies.”

In an interview before the first debate with Fox News Radio, Trump tried to lower expectations for his performance. He expressed concern that he would get tough questions by Wallace, a Fox News host who grilled the president in a TV interview in July: “It’ll be unfair, I have no doubt about it,” Trump said. “But he’ll be controlled by the radical left.”

After downplaying Biden for weeks as an incoherent messenger, Trump said he thinks Biden will have the advantage in this debate because the vice president is more politically experienced: “No, I think I’m the one without experience, I’ve just been doing this for a few years, he’s been doing it for 47 years plus.”

Both Biden and Trump faced voter questions onstage in separate Pennsylvania town halls recently, which foreshadowed how their first debate might go: Trump struggled to handle tough questions, and any verbal stumbles on Biden’s part seemed like less of an issue as a result.

I heard a promo tonight that Rachel Maddow and Nicolle Wallace will be hosting the coverage from MSNBC at 8:00 PM Eastern, if you're partial to them.

I happen to think they are MSNBC's best anchors.

I think Rachel is the best anchor on any network. She listens to the people she interviews. You can see her listening actively.

I think so, too.

And I really appreciate that she and her staff actually follow breaking news and can get good guests on short notice. I can't tell you how many times she has come on air and immediately said, "We had a whole different show lined up for tonight. We'll bring that to you later, but in view of the breaking news, we're talking about...."

And what a listener she is! You're right. She will hold a guest over an additional commercial break to pursue something s/he has said.

More than anything, I respect her honesty. She almost always asks her guest if she got something wrong in her leadup to their introduction, and if she said something wrong or put the wrong emphasis on something, she immediately embraces what the guest says. When she has made a mistake during her show, she STARTS the next program with a correction and an apology. That does EVERYTHING to support her credibility.

Donald Trump's idea of debate is to shout down Joe Biden and Chris Wallace.

He's showing America his ass.

He’s doing exactly that, Robbie, shouting down Biden. Depending on your POV, you could either see trump as an insufferable bully (will play well with his base), orBiden as a Too-polite weakling. When Biden is allowed his time, he makes some good points.

I can’t wait to hear from the fact checkers fact checking trump’s claims.

I watched 45 minutes of the debate, and that was all I could take. It's pointless. Even if 100 million people tuned in, my guess is that most of them had tuned out by the time I did. It was like slogging through mud.

Trump is being a complete asshole. Wallace has no control and completely submissive to him. Biden isn't doing great. But it is allowing Trump to be in control and look dominant. Wallace should be ashamed, but Trump is uncontrollable.

Uncontrollable is right. The only thing Chris Wallace could do would be to shut down his microphone.

They need to give the next moderator a button that shuts down each speaker's microphone. Whoever interrupts the moderator or other speaker out of turn is shut down.

Biden NEEDS to just keep talking through Trump's interruptions. IGNORE what Trump is saying. Just keep going forward with YOUR points. We can hear you over Trump's blather.

I used to have some respect for Wallace, but no longer. Not just letting Trump take control, I think he is biased and obviously giving Trump more time. Biden is calm, rational and reasonable, but unfortunately I feel like he's losing to the !@#$ bombastic nutcase. I would love to see Kamala Harris debate Trump and think it would be very different. But I am getting drunk as I watch this. What is everyone's opinions?

I wish that when Trump went after Hunter, Biden had gone after the useless trump kids. Hunter drummed out of the military? At least the Biden kids signed up and served. Trump kids only go to war against endangered animals enclosed in small areas so pussy kids can shoot them.

Re: Presidential and Vice Presidential debates 2020


I'm FURIOUS!!! Had to come back into my office to watch the rest. I was worried I'd throw a stapler at the TV again. (Did that back in the Reagan 1984 campaign.)

After Trump just interrupted for the gazillionth time, Wallace asked Biden to respond to Trump's question. Biden said, "I don't know what the question was in that lengthy rant." Wallace laughed and said, "I am having trouble following it, too."

Like you, I've completely lost respect for Wallace. He could have done SO much more to control this debate. He tried a couple of times well within the "debate," but it was too late. Trump was bullying him from the very start. The next moderator had better take control IMMEDIATELY.

Yeah. I give Biden big points for admitting that Hunter had a drug program and has worked his program. But damn, kids have ALWAYS been off limits.

Now Wallace is completely giving in to Trump declaring the election invalid. I feel sick.

Well, Nicolle Wallace sure put her finger directly on it.

She said that this wasn't a debate. Chris Wallace wasn't a moderator. Trump ABUSED Biden, and to a lesser extent Chris Wallace.

And then she came right back around and said that what Trump did was an assault.

Yeah. That's EXACTLY what it felt like, to me.
