It is no difficulty listening to Biden, he may have some trouble explaining himself and getting the words out sometimes, but he perseveres. He doesn't seem angry for being asked the questions. He sounds like he cares about answering and he gives people his time. Trump seems like a petulant child that is mad for being questioned. He is practically yelling at everyone.

What a lying sack of s**t Trump is.
I watched just a little bit and I couldn't take it. It was the same as the debate with Biden.
Petulant child, lying -----, disingenuous to a level that is stunning.

And his "herd immunity" dodge - this when I just got a text from a friend whose brother-in-law just passed from COVID.

--- Trump and every single one of his supporters. Every single one of them.

Trump did admit he owes hundred of millions to foreign interests - and we might someday find out who those people are.

Pretty damn sure that's why he won't say a negative word about or to Putin.

"Republican Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska excoriated President Trump in a telephone town-hall meeting with constituents on Wednesday, saying the president badly mishandled the coronavirus pandemic, mistreats women and cozies up to dictators.

"The way he kisses dictators' butts, I mean, the way he ignores that the Uighurs are in literal concentration camps in Xinjiang right now. He hasn't lifted a finger on behalf of the Hong-Kongers," Sasse said in audio obtained and published by the Washington Examiner."

I'll just C & P my contribution from another thread

"I've been watching both, starting with Trump. It was compelling to watch him self destruct with his usual non-answer answers, interspersed with one conspiracy theory after another in rapid machinegun fashion. There was nothing to gain there so I switched to ABC to listen to Biden who sometimes gets long winded with enthusiasm. In the interest of time and the other questioners, I thought it was very generous of Biden to invite a young black man to stick around after the show for a one on one conversation.

I wouldn't mind if Trump got a bigger share of the viewing audience. The more people who see Donald Trump at his convoluted, out of control, nonsensical, irrational self, the better it is for Joe Biden.

The tiny audiences due to the pandemic make the election seem like we're still in early stage primary "Dottie's Pork Pie & Breakfast" appearances in Iowa last year instead of 19 days out from the general election.

I watched both shows.

- Biden was respectful of voters. In fact, he's still answering questions long after the televised town hall is over.

- Trump didn't win over any women tonight (again) interrupting Savannah Guthrie and being a bully who interrupted nearly every question from her before she could finish the question. 85% of people who wear masks get COVID? He wasn't ------- with DACA long before the pandemic hit?

Trump's a natural born liar. Biden is a sincerely good person.

Biden sticking around to answer more voter questions is a great move. Trump listens to nobody and cares about nobody but himself. Biden genuinely wants to hear from Americans.

It's a national disgrace that Trump is technically the president and, even worse, that anyone could continue to take him seriously after four years of scandal and embarrassment. Partisan politics are necessary to a degree, so you know a candidate's basic positions about the role of government, how best to promote America's success and all that, but at some point you have to give up and admit you bought a lemon.

It's only the tip of the iceberg pal. What were the insurance files on Weiner's laptop? What was Epstein's connection to Les Wexner, the Bronfmans, and the Mega Group? How come no one is taking about the fact that Robert Maxwell, Jeffrey Epstein's mentor, was a known Mossad agent and Danny Casolaro was killed for investigating him? What about the Khashoggis and their ties to the Belgian sex trafficking ring that Marc Dutroux supplied young girls for? What about the "hunting parties" spoken of in the X-Dossiers? Why did the US DOS continue to give DynCorp contracts after they were caught raping and trafficking children in Bosnia? Why did Laura Silsby, a so-called Christian missionary, end up working for AlertSense, a company that provides alerts for the Amber Alert program, after she was caught trying to smuggle kids out of Haiti?
Intelligence agencies and unelected bureaucrats run our countries through an organized system of blackmail. The democratically-elected officials are just there for show, to make you think that your vote matters. They don't need your consent. They think you're dumb cattle. They think we're so stupid that we won't see what they're doing. Who runs all the publishing companies? Who controls all the patent offices? They are holding humanity back on purpose. We are their hostages and their ------- trade goods. Just nuke us already china, your flu didn't work.

From an anonymous source at NBC:

Imo, it will help everyone to recognize this isn't isolated to Trump. It would appear that perhaps the IRS acts more as a shield from investigation.

#57 - The insinuation that the black cultural context which Hunter's white privilege is "appropriating" is smoking crack cocaine displays blatant racism, classism and dissonance. Perhaps we're not appreciating the fuller scope that Biden has similarities to Trump in that they are both money witches, but how they appeal to their handlers and cultivate themselves has extreme differences. This tax fraud is so massive compared with anything Hunter was smoking. Trump obviously snorts Adderall and most every representative is drunk on television. Their entire "cultural" is a facade, so..
