Chris Wallace needs to get this thing under control

Biden's tie is better, classier. Trump looks sloppy as usual

Orange Dump looks petulant. NOT a good look for him. So far, Joe's doing well.

Edit: and LD is correct, Joe looks great, very classy, Trump looks like he just walked off The Apprentice.

Trump trying to run over both Chris Wallace when he's trying to ask a question. Over Biden when he's trying to talk at all. Will Wallace give Trump a time out?

Yup. Trump is just coming across as petulant and angry. I like that Joe is laughing off most of his comments.

Also, Joe is addressing US, whereas Trump is all about attacking B-Man.

I can't really fault Biden because of what a censored smiley mess this debate is, but I'm not satisfied with Biden's response to Trump saying Biden would not have shut down travel to China.

I'm concerned that Biden looks old. He's not stuttering a lot, but he starts to get off-message and has to bring himself around by interrupting himself.

Drumpf looks old, too, but he's got the office already and everyone expects him to babble so he doesn't lose points for it.

Ehhh, I don't think that was such a big deal. Better not to engage Trump on that point because Trump is a xenophobe.

Biden does look old, because he IS old, and doesn't slather on orange makeup. Doesn't bother me in the least. Biden is laughing and shaking his head at almost everything Trump says.

Agreed, and this is -- as I expected -- a brawl. But in fairness, it's largely one person who is being aggressive.

And jeez ... I agree, this is embarrassing as an American. The fact that you can't have two candidates on stage who have a reasoned, polite, civil debate is a sad commentary on the status of our country.

Chris Wallace -- just has no control over this, and you can hear it in his voice.

I feel like at this point, we should just stick these two into a boxing ring, and let them duke it out.

Maddow tweeted"
"Maybe we could also debate by mail?"

truly pointless. who is learning anything? Trump is just re-enacting his twitter feed of the past few months.

People who have experienced PTSD from getting bullied, esp. by a man, should not watch this. Such unhinged, immature behavior from our president. Truly disturbing.

Ask Trump what kind of car he drives, does he even drive? he's talking about cars like he's never driven one

With 8 minutes left, Biden won this more than an hour ago.

Dumbf just can't get out of his own way.

It's crystal clear who had appropriate consequences for inappropriate behavior as a kid.

Trump claimed that the "Portland Sheriff" supports him (no such person)

Here's how the sheriff of Multnomah County responded.
"In tonight's presidential debate the President said the "Portland Sheriff" supports him. As the Multnomah County Sheriff I have never supported President Trump and I never will."

Yes, I think that'll be the more informative debate -- Kamala will destroy the puppet. Especially on racial division issues, but also on other things. They're both younger and so will hopefully be more coherent.

Almost an impossibility, but I agree that Wallace wasn’t up to the task. Disappointingly so.

I did not watch, but I am sure it was an embarrassing mess.
His base, other than the rich people who support him only to enlarge their bank account, probably don’t even know what a real debate is.
I will see what Colbert has as highlights, if I can even stand that much of The Cheeto Bandito.

I read this thread, as bad as described, it does not do justice to the horror of this train wreck.

On the CBS after-debate show, they had on Don Jr, who denied that Trump said or meant that.

Trump also directly told Wallace that he paid millions of dollars in federal income taxes, not $750 in 2016/2017. Lets go to the return and see, huh?

Honestly this was so disturbing and abnormal I don't think the late night comics should even do anything with it. There's no way to distill it into anything.

Historian Jon Meacham, a person not prone to hyperbole, has just said this was the lowest point in the American presidency since Andrew Johnson's racist state papers.

why don't they mute mics? serious question. i know some might consider it rude but others, like myself, would see it as appropriate. why don't they do that?
