    To those who say Trump won't or hasn't condemned white racist, here's this: https://www.factcheck.org/2020/02/trump-has-condemned-white-supremacists/

    Plus, I hear him condemn Democrats everyday, so that's pretty much the same thing. You don't see Republicans getting on their knees asking for forgiveness for being "superior" to POCs. That's because we don't see our skin as making us better than anyone else, but this is for another thread.
    Also, does anyone remember back in January when Richard Spencer, the white nationalist" and his group, who were at Charlottesville, disavowed Trump and the main stream media was so happy about it?

    Imagine thinking Biden won this debate. To be fair there was a very low bar set, the fact he didn't fall flat in his face is a win I guess. Also he was wired up, he was being fed answers and I dont think it's out of the realms of possibilities to assume he knew the questions beforehand too just like Clinton was fed them in 2016. Also he had an IV line in, why did he need this?

    Even focusing on last night, when initially asked if he denounces white supremacists he said, "Sure." When asked again if he was willing to denounce white supremacists, he said he was. Then he turned it around a bit and asked that they specifically identify what it was, who it was, that they were asking him to denounce. And that's important, because leftists appear to have a very broad definition. In a tweet later, the Biden campaign ran a video including an image of Kyle Rittenhouse as being among "white supremacists." That's bullshit. And Rittenhouse's attorney says he will now sue the Biden/Harris campaign for libel (same attorney who has already successfully hit CNN and the Washington Post over Nick Sandmann).

    Exactly. Also, I can't remember who said it, but either Chris or Biden said "The Proud Boys" were a "white nationalist" group when they are only trying to prevent antifa from destroying property. I find it odd that a white nationalist group would have non-white members, but like you said, democrats have a "very broad definition".
    The funny thing is that democrats can't see that Antifa are the "white supremacists" that the FBI is warning about. They are a group of spoiled white kids that go through and destroy black communities.

    trump was being the rude douche bag dictator wanna be he always is and at this point the ONLY people who will vote for him are racists, complete idiots who lack I.Q. and common sense and the wealthy. He's done nothing for people in this country whose incomes fall in the lower 80 percentile , but racist dopes who are just brainless sheeple and for some reason who want to get rid of democracy ... love this guy and will vote for him no matter what.

    But then again, look at all the followers people like Hitler, Manson, Jones, Koresh...etc all had. And ultimately , look how well it ended for them. His trumpTARDS will vote for him, because racist people only need ONE motivation and that is hate and he has that in spades. And his sheep are soooo stupid they can't even understand the level of their stupidity so they don't see it. The rich and corporations want him because he makes them richer, it's the traditional and absolute recipe of putting in an authoritarian regime in place and the morons can't even see it and literally make up excuses to support it. Unreal.

    I couldn't read this wall of text without laughing. I swear I must be on Twitter/Resetera/Reddit's /r/pol! Also, I don't think you know what an "Authoritarian Regime" is. Also, I'm one of those buzzwords that plan to vote for Trump, in his swing state. I hope we can swing it red again!

    I watched it and didn't care for both candidates interrupting each other the entire time and both of their childish insults and old lady bickering didn't impress me. I wanted to hear about policy or changes and most of the time it was just utter garbage. Hopefully in the next debate both candidates will give each other time to speak and present their plans, but after watching this first one I doubt that'll happen. I'm not impressed at all.

    Good example of that broad definition I was talking about.

    Funny, based on your tone and word choice you sound like a pretty intolerant person who shares more characteristics with racist people then you probably understand or know.

    I know plenty of people who will be voting for Trump, but they would never admit it in open company because of fear of intolerant people like yourself.

    racism noun
    rac·ism | \ ˈrā-ˌsi-zəm
    also -ˌshi- \

    Definition of racism

    1. anything the intolerant Liberal Left disagrees with or dislikes. It has nothing to do with actual Racism (see 2)

    2. belief that race is a fundamental determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race

    trump failed the easiest layup in the world. "do you denounce white supremacists?" any answer other than "Yes I do" is disqualifying. instead we got "stand down and stand by". like sure, even if he some how didn't know who the proud boys are, he could have just said, "hey, i don't support white supremacy". literal idiot.

    CNN is this generations MTV. Making hopelessly braindead idiots who believe every word they say "Dems good Republicans bad"

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    The moderator who every question he asked to Trump was asked to put him down? Fuck him. It was Biden and Wallace vs Trump Wallace clearly is voting for Biden and it showed. He should not be allowed to moderate the other debates.

    What matters are the independent voters that are just trying to get by, not the hard core Republicans or Dems. The dynamic of this race is entirely different from 2016. This is a different shit show. If we look back at 2016 Trump he was arguing for Universal Healthcare, ending NAFTA, and took some of Bernie's policies. In some ways he was arguing that he was left of Hillary, despite the fact that he was clearly lying and contradicted himself all the time. But in 2016 he was actually speaking to those regular folks struggling to get by and there were a lot of people that were hurting and needed change and were willing to risk it on Trump. Now in 2020, Trump isn't speaking to those people anymore, he is hardcore culture war and appealing to the farthest right people. He has 4 years under his belt in which the economy has imploded and unemployment is past 20% with more than 30% not able to pay rent right now. Costs have skyrocketed and the US has had more deaths from the coronavirus than any other country on the planet. He needed to secure those independents that pushed him over in the last election and he did the exact opposite of that last night. Biden, despite being terrible in his own ways literally just has to avoid appearances and do nothing from now until the election day and he will most likely win.
