  • Twelve Days That Will Shake the World What Trump's debate win means for the 2020 campaign

    The Washington Free Beacon ^ | 10/22/2020 | Matthew Continetti
    President Trump needed a strong debate performance to have any hope of slowing Joe Biden's momentum in the closing days of the 2020 campaign. And a strong debate performance is what he delivered. Trump didn't interrupt Biden or moderator Kristen Welker of NBC News. There was considerably less shouting than at the first debate. You could actually understand what was going on. And Trump was on message. He contrasted his record, policies, and outsider persona with Biden's. He argued for coping with the pandemic while reopening the economy and resuming in-person schooling. Perhaps most important, he defined Biden as a...

    In one swift motion during Wednesday night's debate, Mike Pence fact-checked Kamala Harris, indicted the media, and corrected a false narrative peddled by the moderator of last week's presidential debate. In one swift motion during Wednesday night’s first and only vice-presidential debate, Vice President Mike Pence fact-checked Sen. Kamala Harris, indicted the media, and corrected a false narrative peddled by the moderator of last week’s presidential debate — all at the same time.Attacking the Trump administration for what she called a “pattern” of racist behavior, California Democrat Harris said, “[Trump], on the issue of Charlottesville, where people were peacefully protesting...
  • 7 Quick Takeaways On The 2020 Vice Presidential Debate

    Pence is a deceptively strong debater who would have been tough to beat even on a good night, but Harris' comparatively weaker substance combined with a frankly awful style did not help her out. The vice presidential debate between Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., and Vice President Mike Pence was more traditional and less raucous than last week’s debate between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden. That debate was a three-way interruption fest marked by Biden losing track of his thoughts and Trump clumsily returning to slights that had occurred 25 minutes earlier.This debate was less exciting, a...

    Disturbing questions emerge from a joint Senate report on the Biden family’s dealings with America’s greatest adversary. Given the grave threat posed by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), especially near an election and in an era in which fears of foreign influence are at an all-time high, one might think revelations about the family of Democratic nominee Joe Biden cashing in on Communist China while he was vice president might be a “big [expletive] deal,” in the cellar-dwelling candidate’s words.Yet the media and political class have completely blacked out these newly released facts. This was on display during the first...

    Political debates only reveal a candidate's abilities and beliefs if we can follow what's going on. Let's auto-mute mics for candidates not on the clock. Of the many things this nation must reaffirm, itÂ’s that words matter and promises should be kept. If former Vice President Joe Biden and President Donald Trump stick to the commitments their campaigns agreed to months ago, Americans will have the option to sit through two more presidential debates this year.As soon as is possible, however, the Commission on Presidential Debates must ensure a return to an informative, meaningful, and respectful discussion between the candidates...
  • Fox News Personalities Blast Chris Wallace’s Performance At Presidential Debate

    Several Fox News anchors criticized their colleague, Chris Wallace, for the way he handled the first presidential debate as a moderator. The debate was contentious from beginning to end with Wallace struggling to stop President Trump and Joe Biden from interrupting each other, launching personal attacks, and getting off-topic. Wallace repeatedly asked the candidates to let each other speak and at one point, Wallace raised his voice to end a clash between the president and Joe Biden. “Why should I be different from the two of you?” he said.

    'Well, first of all, I guess I’m debating you, not him,' Trump said to Chris Wallace during Tuesday's 2020 presidential debate. Fact check: True. Debating one person is difficult, especially if he’s had oodles of alone time in his basement to prepare while you’ve been a little busy leading the country. Debating that person and a partisan media hack at the same time is just BS.That, however, was President Donald Trump’s exact plight Tuesday night at the first 2020 presidential debate, when he was treated to a two-on-one showdown with his actual opponent Joe Biden and his honorary rival, Fox...

    San Francisco Chronicle / ^ | Sep. 29, 2020 Updated: Sep. 29, 2020 8:16 p.m. | By Amy Graff, SFGATE
    President Donald Trump has made disparaging remarks about Oakland many times, and he did it again in the Tuesday night debate with former Vice President Joe Biden. Fox News' Chris Wallace, who moderated the debate, asked the president about his frequent assertion that cities with Democratic leadership are more violent than Republican-run ones. When Wallace said Republican-controlled cities show similar trends of violent crime, Trump launched into a stream-of-consciousness response that, at one point, included an assertion that Oakland was "more violent" under President Barack Obama and asked where law and order was under the Obama-Biden watch. "Look at Oakland,...

    ...Bernie is a poor debater. Not as much as Biden, but close enough. All he can do is respond to every question with an angry rant about corporations and medical care. That's not going to win anything. After Biden's victory speech, it's clear that the current brains behind his campaign have been able to get him to memorize his own speeches and deliver them in an angry tone that passes for energy...

    Following another round of devastating primary losses on Tuesday, Bernie Sanders delivered a statement to the media from Burlington, Vermont. The one-time frontrunner was facing calls to drop out, with some are already declaring the race over. But Sanders made it clear that he's not going anywhere, saying he looks forward to debating Joe Biden on Sunday, and telling the former vice president directly that he has questions he expects him to answer during that debate. Sanders began his speech with an anti-Trump tirade. “Tragically, we have a president today who is a pathological liar, and who is running a...
  • James Clyburn: Time to shut down the primaries and cancel the debates to protect Biden

    @Miles Parks- NPR Rep. Clyburn on NPR just now: "I think when the night is over, Joe Biden will be the prohibitive favorite to win the Democratic nomination... If the night ends the way it has begun" it's time to "shut this primary down," meaning the DNC should "step in" and cancel future debates. He says prolonging the primary process only makes it more likely that the favorite, Biden in his eyes, "gets himself into trouble" and hurts himself for the general election
  • New qualifications for next debate likely rule out Gabbard

    The Democratic National Committee has ratcheted up the threshold to qualify for its next presidential debate, requiring candidates to have picked up at least 20% of convention delegates allocated in state primary contests. The new rules announced Friday for the March 15 debate in Arizona will allow former Vice President Joe Biden and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders to participate but will likely exclude Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard. Gabbard has struggled to attract support in the contest and has picked up only two delegates — from the U.S. territory of American Samoa, where she was born. By comparison, Biden has more...

    Yes, in effect, it was, because it was about profiling people based on their race. And the mayor even said that they disproportionately stopped white people too often and minorities too little, and I'm not here to score points. I come at this with a great deal of humility, because we have had a lot of issues, especially when it comes to racial justice and policing in my own community. And I come to this with some humility because I'm conscious of the fact that there’s seven white people on this stage talking about racial justice.

"CBS Evening News" anchor and managing editor Norah O'Donnell and "CBS This Morning" co-host Gayle King will moderate the debate, joined in questioning by "Face the Nation" moderator and senior foreign affairs correspondent Margaret Brennan, chief Washington correspondent Major Garrett and "60...

    Democratic presidential candidate and billionaire Tom Steyer told CNN on Thursday none of his fellow rivals won Wednesday's debate in Las Vegas because President Trump was the true victor. "Because I saw so much bickering between Democratic candidates tearing each other down and going after each other and forgetting the fact that what really counts is beating Donald Trump in November of 2020," Steyer said. "I saw people going after each other’s personality and records instead of remembering that, in fact, the Democratic Party needs to win in November," he added. Steyer was not on the stage after failing to...

    Michael Bloomberg shrugged off his ghastly debate performance with his campaign vowing he's just 'warming up' after the former mayor was universally panned for his stage debut. 'You know you are a winner when you are drawing attacks from all the candidates. Everyone came to destroy Mike tonight. It didn’t happen,' Bloomberg's campaign manager Kevin Sheekey said in a statement after the debate. 'He was just warming up tonight,' Sheekey added. The general consensus was Bloomberg bombed in Wednesday night's debate, his first time appearing with his rivals for the Democratic nomination.
  • Bloomberg Faces Searing Attacks At Free-For-All Democratic Debate

    The Democratic presidential debate Wednesday night kicked off with fireworks, as every person on stage not named Mike Bloomberg attacking the former New York City mayor, who was participating in his first presidential face off. The first hit at the NBC/MSNBC two-hour debate here came from frontrunner Bernie Sanders, who ripped Bloomberg for his record as mayor. Next to swing at Bloomberg was Elizabeth Warren, who took aim at the mayor's past critical statements about women. "I'd like to talk about who we're running against. A billionaire who calls women 'fat broads' and 'horse-faced lesbians,' and, no, I'm not talking...
