Final Presidential Debate Friday October 23 @ noon AEDT

In Australia at 12 p.m. AEDT on Oct. 23 on Sky News, Network Ten, Channel Seven, SBS and ABC News.

The final presidential debate is scheduled to take place at Belmont University in Nashville.

The format is similar to the first, but this time the moderator will mute mics during the debate.

The Commission on Presidential Debates has decided to mute microphones to allow each candidate the opportunity for uninterrupted remarks during this week’s final forum.

The mute button will be featured at the start of each 15-minute segment during opening comments, according to the commission. After that time, both mics will be turned on without a mute option to enable debate.

    Trump should make faces.

  2. Ben says:

    Imagine the satisfaction the media will get from muting Trump’s mic.

    Be prepared for “accidental” Trump muting

  3. RobK says:

    If they are in the same room, I’m not sure Trump will need a mic.

  4. Dot says:

    How ridiculous.

    Guess who won’t be un-muted?

    Actually, let Biden speak. A lot.

  5. Bruce of Newcastle says:

    If I was Trump I would go in there openly wired up with a face mike and a transmitter to internet, so that his words can be heard live streamed on the WH website or some such.

    He should most certainly be getting a clean recording as well, so that the MSM can’t edit his words sideways and upsidedown.

  6. Catfeesh? says:

    Might help Trumpy actually. He made the first debate messy by interrupting all the time and not really giving Biden an opportunity to properly beclown himself.

  7. Tailgunner says:

    Is this our official Debate thread??

  8. Tailgunner says:

    Yes, I think the mic muting may play right into Trump’s hands here.
    Let Joe speak, POTUS!

  9. flyingduk says:

    might actually help the Donald if it highlights Sleepy Joe’s cognition… unless of course the moderator constantly bails him out… but why would that happen?

  10. Mark M says:

    Will the candidates also have a mute button to prevent the moderator from interupting answers that the moderator doesn’t like?

  11. Cui Bono says:

    No foreign policy….because HidinBiden has been wrong for 40 years.

  12. Scott Osmond says:

    Ben, my thoughts exactly. Soon as Trump starts making points the mike will have a “glitch”.

  13. Zatara says:

    … and as soon as Trump’s mike goes dead he will walk over and use Biden’s.

  14. Delta says:

    There’s an interesting post over at American Thinker about corruption. Perhaps Trump will be able make the point in the “debate” about the Biden family’s massive corruption? Hmm.

  15. The Fifth Bike Rider of the Apocalypse says:

    The (Democrat) moderator will mute (Trump’s) mic during the debate.


  16. Up The Workers! says:

    Will the Leftard moderator also mute Creepy Joe’s hidden earpiece?

    We already know that the silly old codger cannot competently follow his speaking instructions and supposedly spontaneous answers on the teleprompter.

    For that matter, would it save time if Creepy Joe stays six-foot-under down in his basement and the Dementiacrat moderator gives all his answers, just to have more time to verbally abuse and speak over the President?

  17. Shy Ted says:

    Let’s play spot the wires on Biden. They got busted last time so will need to be more cautious.

  18. John of Sunbury says:

    Foreign Policy is no longer the theme of this debate but I think we can be confident that the Biden family foreign dealings will be Trump’s main theme for the night.

  19. Zatara says:

    Foreign Policy is no longer the theme of this debate but I think we can be confident that the Biden family foreign dealings will be Trump’s main theme for the night.

    Rumour among the media has it that the Debate Commissars have now forbidden any discussion of Biden’s corruption scandal and will use their muting capability to enforce it.

  20. Bad Samaritan says:

    OK, so Joe is corrupt.

    Isn’t it time for Donald to explain the consequences of the corruption to the American people? How they are suffering because of it? How they will suffer because of it.

    Any Cats got a pithy summation?

  21. FelixKruell says:

    Seems a sensible compromise. You want to have some actual direct discussion between the candidate, but not the mess that was the first debate.

  22. Robber Baron says:

    Trump must learn to do what Chevy Chase did in Spies Like Us.

  23. Fair Shake says:

    Biden should be screened for electronic devices, especially ones to electro shock him out of brain freeze. If he wins the Presidency it will be the biggest fix of all time.

  24. Colonel Crispin Berka says:

    So this is it. We have now entered The (New) Thirteen Days That Shook The World.

  25. Colonel Crispin Berka says:

    The Biden Fizzer Crisis!

  26. Up The Workers! says:

    To Colonel Crispin Berka:

    Never mind the “Biden Fizzer Crisis”,

    I’m hoping the silly old codger has an Incontinence Nappy crisis halfway through the debate, forcing him to waddle off stage just like Jerry Nadler recently did, doing what appeared to be a passable John Wayne impersonation.

    If the Dementiacrats’ Jeffrey Toobin was doing the moderating this time around, the whole event would be transformed from a mere common-or-garden-variety political ‘debate’, to a lurid Leftard ‘mass-debate’!

  28. Up The Workers! says:

    Although the third consecutive biased Dementiacrat-appointed moderator will have the finger on the button to avoid the President from scoring a single point against Senile Old Creepy Joe, it is a pity that there is no compulsion on the moderator to force both candidates to keep their respective spiels relevant and pertinent to the election on 3rd November.

    I’d love to hear Senile Old Creepy Joe attempt to cogently explain to the electorate precisely why it is, in his mind, that the American public desperately need a father and bag-man son tag-team of kiddy-fiddling, lying, admitted-blackmailers, racists, extortionists, embezzlers and internationally-reviled crooks in the White House, instead of President Trump who has done so much to repair all the damage done by the Obama/Hiden-Biden Maladministration.
