The Trump-Biden debate, moderated by Chris Wallace, is about to begin. Follow for a video thread.
"How you doing, man?" Biden asks Trump
Trump is very orange
Biden on nominating RBG's replacement during an election: "What's at stake is the president has made it clear he wants to get rid of the ACA. He's been running on that and he's been governing on that. He's in the supreme court right now trying to get rid of the ACA."
Trump incorrectly claims that there aren't 100 million Americans with preexisting conditions (up to 129 million non-elderly Americans have them),25%20million%20individuals%20%E2%80%93%20is%20uninsured.
Chris Wallace is letting Trump trample all over Biden and not finish his statements
Holy shit. Now Trump is trampling all over Chris Wallace. So far this has been a disaster.
Is Chris Wallace going to moderate this debate or is he just going to let Trump taunt Biden the whole time?
This is an absolutely pathetic performance by Chris Wallace. Trump is just interrupting whenever he wants, cutting off Biden, and Chris Wallace is doing nothing about it. The worst moderated presidential debate I have ever seen.
"Will you shut up, man?" -- Biden to Trump
"You should get out of your bunker and get out of the sand trap and get in the Oval Office" -- Biden to Trump

"It's China's fault" -- Trump on the coronavirus
"14,000 people died, not 200,000" -- BIden to Trump as he tries to do H1N1 whataboutism
As Trump baselessly suggests that a coronavirus vaccine will be available as soon as next month, Biden interjects to say, "this is the same man who told you by Easter this would be gone away. By the warm weather it'd be gone ... maybe you can inject some bleach in your arm."
"Will you just shush for a minute?" -- Biden to Trump as he keeps interrupting him
Biden looks like he can barely believe it as Trump insists that masks aren't necessarily good for slowing the spread of coronavirus
"Because people wanna hear what I have to say" -- Trump on why he's holding packed rallies with no distancing and very few masks during a pandemic

"He's not worried about you," Biden responds. "He's been totally irresponsible."
"He will be the first President of the United States to leave office having fewer jobs in his administration than when he became president. Fewer jobs than when he became president." -- Biden
Biden laughs at Trump as he takes credit for Big Ten football (his mishandling of the coronavirus caused the season to be delayed in the first place)
"Show us your tax returns," Biden interjects, as Trump tries to push back on a NYT report that he paid just $750 in federal income taxes without citing any facts to the contrary
"You're the worst president that America has ever had" -- Biden to Trump
"It turns out that in Obama's final 3 years as president, more jobs were created -- 1.5 million more jobs -- than in the first three years of your presidency" -- Chris Wallace to Trump

Trump pivots to talking about the stock market
"Mr. President, please stop" -- Trump refuses to stop interrupting Biden
"It's hard to get any word in with this clown" -- Biden on Trump
Read the chyron. Then listen to what Trump is saying.
"Minneapolis, we got it back" -- the National Guard was deployed in Minneapolis by the Democratic governor of the state, Tim Walz, not Trump
"I ended it because it's racist" -- Trump on why he directed federal agencies to stop racism trainings. #UpIsDown
"He wouldn't know a suburb unless he took a wrong turn" -- Biden on Trump
Trump lands a blow as Biden can't name a law enforcement organization that has endorsed him
Trump falsely claims that Kellyanne Conway never said unrest in cities is good for him politically. She said it during a Fox News interview.
Holy shit. Trump refuses to condemn white supremacist groups.
"They'll overthrow you" -- Trump to Biden on antifa
Chris Wallace scolds Trump for the fact that he won't stop interrupting Biden even though his camp agreed he wouldn't do that.

"He never keeps his words," Biden says
"I want crystal clean water and air. I want beautiful, clean air ... as far as the fires are concerned, you need forest management" -- Trump's infantile comments on climate change
