    The problem last time was the moderator Wallace interrupting, not so much Biden.

    That's how they control Trump, while letting Biden go on and on.

    Put a mute switch on the moderators mic.

    Here is a scenario.

    Trump gets interrupted by the moderator and biden. But the mic kill switch failed.

    Oops

    If they show an obvious bias towards Biden, Trump should just walk over to Biden's microphone. He is immune to COVID-19 after all.

    Failing that, he should walk off the stage.

    Trump should not participate. There is no debate without him and no ratings. When faced with bs rules, dont play. Pretty simple.

    I cannot for the life of me figure out why the R's put up with the POTUS debate rules, and who they choose for moderators. This didn't start with Trump.
    The debates should be just the two candidates. No moderators, no audience.
    Each candidate will ask the other a question. The questioner will then have time to respond to his opponents comments. Then the other candidate will have the opportunity to ask a question and so on.
    Let the candidates make the rules. Let them run the show, not some Democrat suckup from the main stream press.

    Or it's a good thing. If they can talk without interruption, we might get to hear what they have to say.....

    The moderator will interrupt Trump/"fact" check him during his 2 minutes. While Biden will never be interrupted or "fact" checked.

    This helps Trump.

    Biden getting multiple questions over the debate and have to talk for 2 minutes uninterrupted on each one? Make some popcorn.

    Why even invite Trump?

    How about 90 minutes of softball with Biden?

    No mics. Blink once for yes, twice for no.

    So it is not just the MSM giving Biden Debate questioned beforehand.

    Nope, they can't. Trump will have two minutes each time to say whatever he wants.

    Yep, and once Trump rattles him the first time, it's going to be all downhill for Joe.

    What a crock. Trump should make sure he has a sign language technician next to him. And of course the universally understood highway displeasure signal would get through: BLEEP THIS, SUCKERS !!!!
