    My prediction is yes. The "moderator" and the Biden team have been choreographing the question and the response for days now. The result will be something like this:

    Moderator: "Mr. Vice President, Rudy Giuliani of Team Trump has made the accusation that a laptop containing incriminating emails to and from your son has been found. All credible sources everywhere in the world such as the ex-CIA director who now works for CNN say that this is all a Russian conspiracy and has absolutely no factual basis. Mr. Vice President, do you agree with that assessment?"

    Biden: "Yes"

    Moderator: "President Trump, now that that is settled, let's go back to the issue of White Supremacy and while we are at it can you please tell us when you stopped beating your wife?"

    Never. If they do, the question will be framed so Biden can make it appear as anyone bringing up the laptop is bullying someone with a substance abuse problem.

    I’d be surprised if she brings that up but if she does Trump needs an excellent alternative summary to offset any Russian disinformation BS. I would like Biden to answer who Mr Big is and if “H” is a nickname for Barack Hussein.

    You might be correct, seems like disinformation is their SOP.

    funny, disinformation is an actual word

    I think Big Don should take the first question, regardless of topic (ChinaVirus, economy, race) and instead of answering it give a 2 minute discourse on the laptop and the Biden criminal activity.

    She has to bring the topic up. No way to ignore it and still have a comprehensive debate of the major topics.

    If that happens, Trump should have a placard that he pulls out that says, "He's lying!" and hold it up to camera.

    The moderator will give the laptop topic a wide berth.

    It will not come up from the moderator and Trump will be muted if he tries to bring it up.

    I don’t think he will be muted when he brings it up.

    All good points. A shame anything that could even incrementally look negative for Biden will never be heard. "what's your favorite color?" is more likely.

    It will come up. He will lie. His base will not care if it is a lie. All they want is to win and lying is fine with them.

    She'll be more likely to ask about a lap dance.

    Are you kidding? If not, no, he will never be asked by any member of the mainstream media any questions beyond, “Mr. President, Er, sorry, Mr. Vice-President, I got ahead of myself. The question has been asked, if you were bread, what kind of bread would you be?”

    Nope. Sounds like Law and Order and the economy will also be avoided.

    Climate change and just how Orange Man Bad seem to be the adjenda.

    Anyone not yet committed to Biden or Trump (both of those voters :) )
    doesn't care about Hunter. It is a trap to run down that rabbit hole
    They plan to nail Trump on Covid, Race, and Income Redistribution.

    I don’t think this commie “moderator” will bring it up, but I am sure Trump will. He is bringing Bobulinski to the debate. That ought to throw Joe off some. Plus Bobulinski may be available for interviews after.
