During the first presidential debate of 2020, nothing was actually debated.
Questions were asked.
Questions were sidestepped.
Questions were ignored.
Statements were made.
Statements were questioned.
Accusations were made.
Accusations were denied.
Accusations were responded to.
Lies were uttered as attacks and defenses.
But it seemed that nothing was actually “debated.”
According to Tyler Olson of Fox News, “The first debate of the 2020 presidential election on Tuesday night was fiery from beginning to end.”
“President Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden attacked each other in starkly personal terms for more than 90 minutes as moderator Chris Wallace worked to get both candidates, but especially [President] Trump, to follow the debate rules the candidates had agreed to.”
President Trump was obviously quite aggressive, but I think I have to give him a bit of a pass on that.
It is not often that The President gets the opportunity to face his accusers.
Since day one on the job, The President has been spied on, attacked on a daily basis, was forced to deal with the fake Russian collusion Mueller investigation, then endure an impeachment hoax, and then he was forced to deal with the Chinese virus, which was unleashed on our country by China and adopted as a political strategy by the democrats and the fake news media.
Now here, President Trump had the man right in front of him, who has called him a racist and a xenophobe.
Here he had the man right in front of him, who is a card-carrying member of the political establishment which has sought to discredit and attack him at every turn.
President Trump had a boat load of pent up frustration that was just primed to be unloaded on Joe Biden.
There was no way these time constraints or a moderator were going to get in his way.
“The ‘conversation’ ranged from the coronavirus crisis to the Supreme Court vacancy to health care. It’s not clear how much substance voters could get out of the debate, however, as it largely consisted of lines aimed to appeal to partisans.”
I feel that President Trump’s supporters could relate to exactly what he was talking about at times, while Biden supporters, who have relied on the fake news for their information, may have been hearing about many of these issues for the first time and may have needed a little more groundwork or background in order for The President to make his point effectively.
The limited time format just didn’t allow for this to happen in many instances, however.
In a nutshell, we had President Trump insisting the radical left was in control of the democrat party, while Joe Biden proclaimed, “I am the Democratic Party right now.”
“It was one of the strongest statements from Biden to date distancing himself from the farthest-left wings of the party. [President] Trump would continue to hammer this point throughout the ‘debate.’”
Biden constantly distanced himself from the radical left regarding healthcare, and global warming, while still managing to remain pretty far out there. He seemed to be in “no man’s land” on a lot of these issues.
“During a discussion about global warming later in the debate, Biden said ‘the Green New Deal is not my plan.’”
I’m sure Joe will be receiving calls today from his running mate, Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez regarding many of his statements.
President Trump clearly established himself as “the law and order candidate.”
And Joe Biden blatantly lied about all of the money his son, Hunter, had received from Russian, Chinese, and Ukrainian interests.
Joe lied about President Trump not acting quickly enough regarding the China virus, when in fact it was he and his democrat friends that ridiculed the President for taking steps to protect the country at the time.
And lastly, President Trump attempted to show a clear difference between the two of them, by emphasizing that Biden would close the country again and that the shutdowns are “hurting people both financially and in their mental health.”
Biden said keeping the country shut down would help the economy long term.
Well, there you have my take and analysis on the first presidential “debate.”
It may be the last presidential “debate” as well.
The liberals just can’t afford for any of these nagging facts to get out there anymore!
