First presidential debate @ 11:00 AEST today

That’s the debate in full above. Biden was completely vacuous and where he was asked for substance, such as over packing the Supreme Court, he out and out refused to answer. There are many scraps for both sides to pick over. For myself, Trump has more to take away but Biden remained lucid right to the end, even if he kept saying the same things Democrats always say. The only post-debate poll I’ve seen shows that among Hispanics, Trump was seen to win 66-34. Still, after all is said and done, the election will determined by the extent to which the Dems can get away with fraud.

Where to Watch

11 a.m. AEST on Sept. 30 on SBS, ABC News, Sky News and Channel Nine

The first presidential debate was originally planned for Indiana’s University of Notre Dame, but the school pulled out due to COVID-19 concerns. Instead, the debate will take place at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland. However, the city will decide when the event gets closer whether or not to allow a live audience.

Can also pick up the debate on C-Span and all over the net.

Topics for the first Trump-Biden debate

The first debate between President Donald Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden will cover six topics. However, the topics are subject to change and the debate itself may not follow this exact order:

    • Trump and Biden’s records
    • The Supreme Court
    • The integrity of the election
    • Covid-19
    • Race and violence in US cities
    • The economy

    Can Geriatric Joe make it through the hour and half without doing a Nadler or rambling on about Corn Pop’s attempts to take a razor to Joe’s hairy legs 180 years ago?

  2. mh

    If I was on the panel

    Joe Biden,
    Can you elaborate on your confrontation with Corn Pop?

  3. Roger

    Biden reportedly refusing search for earpiece through which Kamala will feed him his lines.

    No, really (well, not the Kamala bit, maybe).

    His team had earlier acceded to the request.

  4. Anonandon

    The second debate between Trump and Clinton in 2016 was incredible stuff. I don’t think this one will live up to that.

  5. Thanks Steve. I’m going dark at 10.50am til I get home after work and watch it live. Will be reading this thread tonight.
    Get to it Cats! I want to see some High Energy!!

  6. Cat Poll
    Who do we want to see at 11am –
    Presidential Trump?
    Or
    Savage Trump?
    Only one vote per player, thanks!

    Tails – Popcorn Fatty Trump as per Rita P’s observation.

    If I was on the panel

    Joe Biden,
    Can you elaborate on your confrontation with Corn Pop?

    Demand evidence that his leg hairs turn blonde in the sun. Or that they would standing on end in the water and his minnows (Suetonius readers should get that one) used to rub their hands along them.

    His best hope for credibility.

    Tails – Popcorn Fatty Trump as per Rita P’s observation.

    I wonder how many of our progressive j’ismists are as widely quoted and linked as our dear Rita.

    Paedo Joe is mot that bad ,I saw worse when I used to visit the dementia home ,not much worse but worse. He has that distant look they all get and cant keep on a subject for any legnth of time ,I have seen it in several close friends ,as my old Italiam mate used to say , ” heeza gorra de Taras,heeza no home ” .

    Meanwhile, the Great Biden Earpiece Imbroglio is festering away in slightly unpleasant detail about the position of his ear canals.

    Personally I doubt that his handlers would wire him up. The desperate confusion of him trying to process the little voice in his ear into coherent spoken words would surely be too cruel.

  12. H B Bear

    Should the equivalent of one of Choc Mundine v a homeless bum fights.

  13. woolfe

    Its on YouTube live if you can’t get to a TV

  14. H B Bear

    Not forgetting some Danny Green classics, including the knock out caused by changes in air pressure as Green’s gloves passed by the opponent’s head in the first round.

  15. Dr Faustus

    He has that distant look they all get and cant keep on a subject for any legnth of time…

    He does indeed.
    Disturbing if you have followed someone into the grip of dementia.

  16. Gibbo

    Does anyone know if this will be on the radio? I’ll be driving at the time. 🙂

    First Debate Winner (CNN Snap Poll)
    Settled on the winner of the first CNN snap poll for the first Presidential debate taking place on 30 September 2020. Bets void if debate does not occur, or poll is not taken. Dead heat rules apply. Max bets apply.
    Joe Biden 1.35
    Donald Trump 3.00

    CNN poll 😆
    No wonder Corn Pop is a short price

  18. Up The Workers!

    Any odds on ‘Hiden Biden’ trumping the Trumpster in the debate?

    If a demented Dementiacrat assassin named John Wilkes Booth snuck into the debate venue today with a concealed weapon, I wonder which of the two candidates he would eventually aim for?

    I suspect that a win for either candidate would be utterly disastrous for the Dementiacrats.

  19. Infidel Tiger

    If they get the Aderall levels right, Biden could go well tonight.

    If he stays standing for the 90 mins he will be declared the winner.

    Good to know punters are on to the bias. Sportsbet have Biden at $1.35 to be declared winner by CNN panel. They have been smashed after opening him up closer to $2.

  20. Up The Workers!

    The biggest problem with the “Great Biden Earpiece Imbroglio” isn’t the earpiece itself; the problem lies in the lump of dead clay he plugs the earpiece into.

  21. Dr Faustus

    If he stays standing for the 90 mins he will be declared the winner.

    True.
    But it appears his handlers are worried that Depends don’t have a 90-minute capacity.

    I am watching C-SPAN now.

  23. Infidel Tiger

    Fox has as many lefties on their panel as CNN.

  24. JC

    The first thing Trump should do is head over to Hiden, grab him in a chokehold and the have the medics draw some blood. We should have a result by the end of the debate what they put into him.

    My hunch is that the Orange Oaf is going to keep nibbling at Hiden until he gets him angry and flustered. That’s what I’d do.

  25. JC

    Fox has as many lefties on their panel as CNN.

    Fox is a leftie operation with a couple of exceptions in their opinion line-up. That’s all.

  26. lotocoti

    Joe’s just finishing that last rock of Heisenberg’s No.1.

  27. Trump’s opening words: “We won the election, elections have consequences [proceeds to tell us all he’s the goddamned President & he’ll pick the supreme court nominee]”

    Heh!

  28. Some History

    New “Debate” thread

  29. Oh come on

    Do bear in mind that the vast majority of non-Americans fully believe the MSM narrative that Trump is crazy and Joe Biden is the steady, experienced hand on the tiller. They haven’t seen the vast quantity of evidence that shows Biden’s mental deterioration. It hasn’t been shown, or short parts of it are presented as ‘just the trademark Biden gaffes that the right is pretending is senility’.

    So the odds are what they are at least in part due to the ignorance of the pundits. 3 to 1 for a Trump win is a pretty good bet.

  30. Biden’s opening words: “People only get a chance to have a say in the Supreme Court when they vote for a President & when they vote for a Senator, and people have not had that chance – Trump wants to take away your health care…. blah blah blah”

  31. Oh come on

    Biden is sounding pretty good so far. The intensity is low.

    First chink in the armour for Biden. 20 million um 2 million um 200k.

  32. Oh come on

    Ooh it’s getting spicy.

  33. Oh come on

    Make Wallace your bitch, The Donald!

  34. Oh come on

    Don’t take crap from the journos. Good stuff.

  35. Oh come on

    Biden trying to sound tough. Not working.

  36. Oh come on

    Ooh ‘will you shut up man’. Trump is getting under his skin. Not the best thing to say when you’re claiming the other guy isn’t presidential.

  37. Oh come on

    Oh oh numbers are a problem for Joe. Let’s see how he goes.

  38. Oh come on

    Joe telling people to get out of the bunker…not smart. Notice he realised it and attempted a paraphrase.

    OCO, jump on the Debate thread mate.

    Climate Change is not on the list,
    .
    Trump and Biden’s records
    The Supreme Court
    The integrity of the election
    Covid-19
    Race and violence in US cities
    The economy
    .
    But they are debating it at length.
