2020 Presidential Debate… If You Can Call it That


Rose Picardo

Woah Chill! We can all agree that the debate was crazyyyy. The debate devolved into name callings, chaos, etc… President Donald Trump was even asked to deny white supremacy but couldn’t, instead telling the far-right group often associated with violent protests to ‘stand back and stand by’, in a performance littered with false and exaggerated claims from the president.

Biden eventually lost his patience and snapped: “Will you shut up, man? This is so unpresidential”. He went on to call the president a clown, a liar, and a racist.

Moderator Chris Wallace of Fox News struggled to keep a check on proceedings, widely described as the worst presidential debate of all time. Chris Wallace had a hard time trying to discipline President Donald Trump when trying to let Biden talk.  

Prior to the debate both Joe Biden and Kamala Harris released their most recent tax records. They’d paid more than 5 million dollars total  compared to Donald Trump who only paid $750 worth of taxes.
