    This the most best presidential debate ever where the two opposing sides got to air out all their dirty laundry at each other with out punches being thrown or spitting at the other opponents like the israel politics do, they spit and get violent with each other. Biden & trump were seen together after the debate smiling & shaking hands and hugging each other so I don't know what all the fuss was about !

    If he can't behave himself enough to take his turn and be quiet while the other person speaks, he is not qualified to lead ANYTHING, to say nothing of a whole nation. He also should have set an example to the people to wear their masks; Who knows how many deaths he caused with his childish behavior.

    I think it would be a very good idea to turn off the mic of the person who is supposed to be letting the other one talk.Why should that bother them, if they're not supposed to be talking, anyway? It would make it so much easier to hear the opinions of BOTH of them.

    They should have asked Biden his location to see if he remembered, he seems more alert than usual did they give him adderal or something.

    America, be very careful. This donald trump to me looks and sounds like a crazy and evil man. Its very scary to watch him. He may be a coward but his supporters seem like dumb crazy people too, who could do big harm to the country

    Matthew 24:7- “For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes.

    Matthew 24:12– “Because lawlessness is increased, most people’s love will grow cold.

    Matthew 24:14– “This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come.

    I was really shocked after talking to all of my teacher friends today at my children's high school, Biden needs to clarify is positions more on his plans for trade and/or the green new deal. Also, Kamala Harris could be the replacement president, I haven't seen much of her but she seems quite intense. My fam and friends really disliked her during the primaries plus she was super mean to Joe! Honestly don't know exactly what I'm going to do, I guess just wait till the next debate. Send me some guidance from above

    see the poor women is in shock that people would even be like that like may be she was scared or she just wanted to help them out. in the film i think she was scared all of a sudden they show up with ak 47 pointing at her. all so she was just asking for a explanation
    You see just was asking for a translatetion for her because she was confused how people can be so radicale. but you notice they never gave her one well because how do you explain radicale behaver. like that.
    she just had to go ask a Christian  real Christian  in not with out my daughter. don't ask a radicale
    she just had to go ask a Christian real Christian
    well they can't explain it but the bible has all the anwsers false prophets real prophets wars ect………. God has all the anwsers  not peoples interpretation though that can be wrong as well.  that's why God is his own interpreter and he speaks through man the holy ghost in them.

    From an article titled "HYDROXYCHLOROQUINE AND THE BURDEN OF PROOF" IN THE ECONOMIC STANDARD, SEPTEMBER 2020 EDITION, is the following: "The COVID-19 pandemic struck America nine months before a presidential election, turning basic medical activities like testing and treatment into partisan battlegrounds. No subject has been more distorted than hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), a safe, versatile medicine that has treated hundreds of millions of people for numerous diseases for seven decades. HCQ was adopted as a COVID-19 treatment in Asia in January 2020 without fanfare, based on lab tests with the related coronavirus SARS-1. But when President Trump stated in March that the U.S. would also begin studying the drug’s potential against the virus, political opponents defied longstanding scientific and medical consensus to portray HCQ as harmful and Trump as a mortal danger to public health. Flawed and even falsified studies were published and promoted by media outlets eager to discredit Trump, while positive studies were impugned or ignored."

    Showing their extreme bias the propaganda spewing hacks at NBC called Trump a bully yet said nothing about Biden telling Trump to shut up and calling Trump names such as clown and liar.

    It was Hunter Biden who rode on Air Force Two to China with Joe Biden and at some point Hunter Biden got over a billion dollars from China. Sounds like corruption, perhaps a bribe to get the US government to do communist Chinas bidding.

    Joe Biden admitted to and bragged about actually doing what the House of Representative democrats impeached Trump for allegedly doing.

    These fake purveyors of Hope & Change are back at the trough. Mouthpieces for Lobbyists who line their pockets. President Trump is a smart man. He was faced with a candidate of such low standard. It was a cake walk for him. He nailed Biden with one significant truth "You did nothing in 47 years". The same issues were tabled every 4 years for the last 20 years. And they call Trump the Liar ?

    Biden was the Hysterical one. "Shut up man" ? Seriously? Your standards have fallen to the floor.

    Joe, the country was doing well with unemployment at its lowest in history, manufacturing returning, small businesses thriving, prison reform initiatives, immigration being streamlined, etc. You cannot blame the President for a natural disasters. The COVID pandemic set the Us back. If you politicians did your job of preparing the country in the last 20 years for such natural disasters, it may not have been so bad. Instead you were busy wasting trillions of taxpayer dollars invading countries, creating chaos and crisis and lining your pockets.

    Trump probably hoped that his "attack" could work on Biden as he did to Hillary Clinton, but aha! Biden was more stable and not "reactive" to Trump's attack, bully, and his "logorreha" and Trump quickly realized that Biden wasn't the equal competitor 🙂
    Like a bullying kid, he wanted to feel superior to the other by bullying, because he knew internally that he can't compete with Biden in a fair ground. When the bullying doesn't work, he gets easily more aggressive, trying to bully more… that's what happened.

    I’m voting Trump, why because he’s The only one who actually is doing everything his base asked him to do, simple, like or hate the guy you cannot take that from him. Yes I voted for Hilary, I got lucky, she lost, thank God.

    There will be no further debate until the elections … Donald Trump has now received what is called karma and can try out his tips with the disinfectant himself! God's index finger gave him what he did not fight, Covid-19!
