I hope its true on election day, any Presidential election involving a first term President should be a referendum on his job. If this is election is such and, it's starting to look so, it won't be close.

Why limit it to that? Charge another 20M on top of that then sue the RNC for the money

What limits? Once he loses, he's going to grift as much as possible in the remaining 10+ weeks of his term. We'll see all kinds of lavish going out parties at his resorts.

From some of those stupid enough to vote for him? Why not? He'll probably have a go fund me account for his "treatment" out of office, dumb asses will fall all over themselves to contribute.

Trump is going bat [expletive] crazy since his hospital stay. Can’t tell if it’s the drugs, or the realization that he’s toast so he doesn’t have to hold back, or he somehow thinks that this will help him get back in the race. I wouldn’t tolerate this type of tantrum from my 4 year old much less the President.

I was hoping for better from Harris thus far, but obviously things are going well enough.

Pence is giving nothing answers to these questions. Just like him, his answers are milquetoast.

Less interrupting in this debate but a lot of questions being blown right over. I know candidates tend to bend questions so they can get their big lines in and stuff, but this debate seems even bendier than normal.

I don’t understand why they won’t address the question about packing the court. Is it really that bad politically to lean one way or another. I get that they don’t want to turn off the far left and they don’t want to turn off the Never Trumpers but when they are pressing and pressing i feel like it’s worse to not address it. Maybe I’m wrong.
