    If you can't win, change the rules to help Biden. Last night on twitter all the hard leftest said the moderator should be able to mute candidates. They just want to silence Trump. The comments made on Wallace's "professionalism and skill" make that clear.

    https://www.foxnews.com/politics/co...format-changes-after-first-trump-biden-debate

    The Commission on Presidential Debates on Wednesday said the highly contentious first debate between President Trump and Joe Biden “made clear” that “additional structure” should be added to the format of the remaining debates in order to “ensure” a “more orderly discussion” of issues.

    The commission added that it will be “carefully considering the changes that it will adopt and will announce those measures shortly.”

    The commission is grateful to Chris Wallace for the professionalism and skill he brought to last night’s debate and intends to ensure that additional tools to maintain order are in place for the remaining debates,” the commission said of the Fox News anchor, who moderated the debate."

    If they give the moderator the power to mute a candidate then they have all the power and can control the outcome very easily. No way should that happen or should Trump agree to do a debate with that change, if they go that direction.

    I hope they use the mute button. If our commander in chief cannot follow the rules he agreed to before hand then either shut him up with a mute button or cancel the debates. Sorry state of affairs that we have to even consider changing the rules for such childish behavior.

    Russia is very happy right about now

    It would help if the format was changed to allow more rebuttal time for each candidate. I think that contributed to the talking over each other. Both had more to say than they were allowed time to say.

    The worst thing about last night's debate was that President Trump wasted some good opportunities to defend himself against Biden's accusations. Clearer, succinct answers would have been much more beneficial to him. I hope he prepares better for the next debate. He knows the things Biden's going to accuse him of and he should have clear answers already decided.

    "Of course I oppose violent, lawless groups of any kind including white supremist groups. Laws should apply equally to everyone. But why are you asking that, as the rioters are mostly Antifa and BLM? The riots are taking place in Democrat controlled cities and they have repeatedly refused my offers of help. Does Biden oppose violent left-wing groups? Why has he only very recently tried to change his tune on the subject of lawlessness and defunding police?"

    I'm sure he could prepare better answers than my example. Last night he didn't seem at the top of his game and didn't clearly defend himself on some topics, which he could have easily and legitimately done.

    Biden really didn't have much of substance to say, and his disrespect toward the Office of the President and his name-calling were disgusting. He didn't come across as a dementia patient, though, only as an obnoxious politician. Trump did probably get him to anger some of the radical left (most of them are radical) and AOC, but they'll still vote for him.

    I doubt anyone's mind was changed last night unless they've been living under a rock this year.


    Trump/Republican 2020!

    Imagine the constant stress for 4 years by the MSM and the Left against you and your family
    DT is close to a snapping point. A cornered dog with no place to turn...
    The Left created this.

    The behavior is totally understandable, but unfortunately not acceptable.

    Be there another debate ,and he can contain his rage it by taking notes for rebuttal time, he can turn it around.

    Biden hasn't accomplished anything so the libs use questions to make it appear as if Trump has no accomplishments.

    It's as if Trump is the contender and Biden is the seasoned Obama professional.

    Forest fires, K shaped recovery, white supremacy, mail in voting works, 200,000 dead because of Trump, Supreme Court nominee will set the clock back 100 years.

    I thought Wallace would be fair but this is the October surprise. Get Trump.

    Nominated for three Nobel's
    Eradicated MS-13, building a wall, deporting illegals
    Stock market at record highs
    Vaccine within six months, unheard of
    Impeached, spied on, investigated
    Lowest taxes in decades
    Bringing jobs back to America

    And the big kicker Biden would have closed down Covid two months later than Trump

    Trump needs to settle down, call out Steponallofus for fake news and "who am I debating George? You or Biden?"

    No moderators... no holds barred. Ring a bell and let them go at it for 60 minutes.

    Anyone not drowning in the Kool-Aid of either side knows the debate last night was an absolute disgrace. These are our two choices. God help us all.

    Cut off their mics when their time is up.

    Why wasn't anybody calling for mute buttons during the Democratic debates?
