Trump's clumsy attempts to attach Biden to the "far-left" was really unsuccessful

I have to admit he did get a great gotcha body blow getting him to so he doesn't support the green new deal thus causing him to lose the 'radical left'

Trump could've squatted, dropped a deuce on the stage and walked off and gotten 40% to say he won tonight.

Trump could have whipped out his Toadstool and pi$$ed on his shoes while correcting Biden that he wasn't Putin's puppy, but actually his b1tch, and you'd get the same results. No one is changing teams at this point.

When Trump says "us", he is clearly referring only to his supporters. When Biden says "us", he is speaking about the country as a whole. This shouldn't be news to anyone, but it was made abundantly clear again tonight. We simply can't afford another 4 years of us versus them.

40% in a sample of swing states only is a very different result than 40% national. I'd have expected it to be a little tighter if we were looking swing states only. If swing state polling moves in that direction for Biden that's a huge swing for his campaign.

Edit - nevermind I saw battleground and thought battleground state

Yep, she is so good at this.

Having said that, I still cringe every time I think about the disgusting things she has coming her way from the right wing fever swamps, enabled by Reasonable Centrists™, in the coming years.

Please use single camera shots when the person is speaking as well as mic cuts for the other.

Another chance for Biden to hurt himself and Trump saves him from doing so.

The only victor tonight was those who want the US to fail.

It wasn’t great to hear that Biden was doing so poorly early on but it seems like the “stand by” comment is the real thing with legs.

As it should, that’s a bat [expletive] crazy thing for a president to say. Like, holy horsefeathers.

biden is leading in the polls and the polling has been quite stable, so even though it's embarrassing that this isn't like 95% to 0% with 5% saying they weren't paying attention, any result like this is a good one for biden. trump is the one who needs the game to change by winning a debate or biden getting the virus or trump's russian collaborators dropping some BS about biden (like his file storage and e-mail habits) that the media immediately blows way out of proportion.

Somebody took a picture of trump and it looks like he has a Parkinson's Disease deep brain stimulation device implanted under his mop.

That's from March 8 and the source is a bit sketchy.

Yea, as much as I'm on board with trying new things to bring down Trump, can we leave the conspiracy theory level stuff to the loonies and just take Trump at his words and actions and destroy him on that?

That and there isn't anything wrong with having a deep brain implant. I had a professor that had Parkinson's, and he was pretty bad off. Got one of those installed and he's a new man. Now, we should be informed if he has Parkinson's, but those things are miracle workers.
