It is difficult to pinpoint a single moment as the most outrageous during last night’s 90-minute presidential debate between Joe Biden and Donald Trump. At various points, the latter initiated racial violence, was entirely.off-base in his answers and played predictably with facts concerning the economy, COVID-19 and unemployment. Moderator Chris Wallace went into Tuesday’s slugfest attempting to be “invisible” and he succeeded in trying to retaliate, failed to control Trump who always spoke over Biden and often went over the agreed speaking time of 2 minutes.
What would these additional tools be exactly is not yet clear. One of the most popular suggestions among the Twitter crowd was a button to silence the president’s microphone when it is not his turn to speak. Maybe he could be bribed with a new tax break for each answer truthfully. In practice rounds in advance of a debate, it’s usual that each candidate l-m try / pretends someone from their camp as their opponent, but last night it was clear that moderators could do with some prep too.
During the performance last night, some Democrats asked aloud whether Biden should commit to a second and third debates. The Biden campaign gave every indication that the vice president would follow as planned, but Biden’s deputy campaign manager Kate Bedingfield told reporters that there would be “some additional discussions” with the debate commission. The next presidential debate in the form of a town hall is scheduled for 15 October in Miami, Florida and will be managed by C-SPAN senior executive producer Steve Scully. The vice presidents Kamala Harris and Mike Pence will meet for their first debate in Utah a week earlier.
Vanity Fair will re-issue some of its best stories.
