    Biden & Trump on Joe Rogan, 4 hour show. Trump and Rogan agreed.

    I think Trump learned by this and he will handle the next two moderators differently.

    I’m sure he’s rewatching the debate and studying/strategizing on how to maneuver/win the next two debates!

    As odd as it may seem, 66% of telemundo viewers felt Trump won the first debate.

    Is it an Alpha thing in Trump, dislike for Biden’s corruption, I’d love to know!

    Yes,Trump is a alpha,Biden is a beta.Trump dominates,Biden fawns and appeases to survive/get by/eat while surrounded by stronger pack members.In that scenario he's at the "kiddie" table.Whereas Trump is at the head of the table where he eats.At least Bernie has a spine,he may be wrong but he stands for his misguided beliefs.Biden is as malleable as sand.He'll assume any form his handlers shape him into.He's happy to get an "atta" boy,whether he realizes the situation or not.

    The sad part of this is his family is allowing/pushing him toward this end.As far as I'm concerned it's mental/physical abuse of an elderly person.'08.

    Finally made 1000 posts
    When Trump supporters call it a train wreck, there was something wrong.

    "Republican" doesn't mean "not liberal".

    On the microphone they need a large sign -

    Muting brought to you by Google-Twitter-Facebook-Amazon...the censorship experts.

    Mr. President, sorry Mr. Trump, first question - "How many times did you beat your wife?"

    Beeep!!!, muted on a two second delay. Wrong answer. You violated Communist, I mean Community Standards. Next question.

    I never thought of it that way. Democrats, liberals, communists- the terms get interchanged so much around here I assumed they meant the same type of insult.
    Good point

    I'm curious why you don't have BDS and only have TDS.

    Biden Derangement Syndrome. I don't ever see you bashing him. Just Trump.

    Potential for overt violence is there, waiting for a flashpoint.

    One side is prefacing it with Gotcha questions that can be construed as Encouraging violence.
    The debate was used to set that up.

    Good grief! I must be a leftist by some forum members' standards. I watched a few minutes, decided that both candidates were very immature, and hit MY MUTE BUTTON.

    Just because it was recognized as a train-wreck doesn’t mean folks didn’t enjoy it. Like going to the pub for a relaxing couple of beers, and getting a ring-side seat at the bar fight.

    Plenty of people will watch just to see Trump blow stuff Joe up.

    Ah I see, thanks for the clarification.

    I have come down on Biden mainly on his stance to guns.

    But you are right, there is much more about Trump’s policies and behavior I don’t support.

    Congrats...you are the first to look beyond the debate; DJT regardless of his robust heath, and grueling personal schedule, is a 74 yr old man...and despite himself, he does have limitations. I could see the man was very tired and probably cranky as well...and what did he do after the debate?..hopped on Air Force 1 and went to another city for another rally...in contrast, his opponent has been cooped up for months and has not done a tenth of the campaigning Mr Trump has...and why is that?...because Mr Biden is not in the least capable of performing as Mr Trump does...not even in the same league!
