    The worse move he and Schiff made was calling it Russian propaganda. But I'm glad they did.

      This one is a joke about her. Alas the coyote comment by her does not appear to be.

        Biden really blew it with his energy/environmental plan. He is going to lose a lot of votes with that nonsense.
        I don’t think we saw the same debate. What information did you get from trump?

        Covid plan? Pray for vaccine, meanwhile blame China.

        Election security? Horrible emails rant.

        Healthcare? Some beautiful cheap superior healthcare plan coming soon. No further details.

        Racism issue? Biden crime bill 1994.

        Climate change? Planting one trillion trees.

        Healing national division? China sent plague. Everyone is unfair to me blah blah.

        Remember these topics were released prior to the debate? The fact that trump couldn’t answer any questions properly means he is either incredibly stupid or incredibly lazy.

          It's honestly amazing how much Trump whines. Constantly whining.

          Conservativism in the US seems to have become a culture of victimhood and whining. "Everyone's so unfair to us". All the time, whining. It's pathetic.

          Even when you make a conservative literally the most powerful person in the world, they still whine that the world is unfair to them. Unbelievable.

            Trump gave actual numbers. Biden gave a lot of generalities and hot air.

              More alternate reality? Leftists have built their entire voting base by exploiting the notion of victimhood.

                  Alternate reality par excellence. They literally modify English definitions to accommodate offended whiny liberals.

                    I can understand why an African American person might whine. Looking at the data, they as a group, a socio-economically badly off. Looking at history, they as a group, were treated poorly.

                    But conservatives appear to whine and play the victim when they have it good and when they are powerful. Trump whines more than anyone and he's literally the most powerful person in the world. I also see a lot of conservative whining on this forum.

                      Biden was far from perfect but his answers were on topic which showed that he at least understood the issues being asked.

                      Trump either didn’t understand the issues or didn’t understand the questions and basically just repeated stuff from his rallies.

                      What were the actual numbers from Trump that impressed you?

                        I do not believe that Trump ever gave any reliable number. Guess what he considers only 6% of the fatalities from COVID-19 only those who actually died from COVID-19.

                        I believe future tax audits will evaluate Trump's use of numbers.

                          I thought he meandered often.

                          Impressed? I just said he was ready with numbers. And he was.

                            Covid has taken this year, just since the outbreak, has taken more than 100 years.

                            Look, here's the lives, it's just - I mean, think about it.

                            You mean the $1.6 million of POTUS salary he returned to the government?

                              And if a black person doesn't feel like a victim, there's always a white liberal to put him in his place.

                                Covid has taken this year, just since the outbreak, has taken more than 100 years.



                                Look, here's the lives, it's just - I mean, think about it.
                                You mean the human lives lost to COVID-19 and suffering of their relatives are just numbers? This sounds like Trump's compassion and Conservative eugenics.



                                You mean the $1.6 million of POTUS salary he returned to the government?
                                I.6 million is pocket change and much of it deductable. He will likely go down the tubes for over 300 million in debt. Of course his Chinese bank accounts may be of help. I lived there for nine years the Chinese are great at printing US dollars.
