Re: Covid: Trump sez it's China's fault and he saved millions of lives; Biden sez it's Trump's fault, 220K dead, and Biden would actually take control as Prez. Trump's trying again to bring up swine flu, as if anyone cares #Debates2020
I'm listening so you don't have to! Check out the "This is Now: Bridge to a Better World" podcast on Soundcloud, new episode tomorrow, topics: 100 million unemployed, and--welcome to the new death squad America!
Biden points to Trump's lack of policy re: Covid. Trump claims Biden is pro-shutdown. Pretty boring so far, you're not missing much #debate "The cure can not be worse than the problem itself," sez Trump, over a mountain of dead

Win or lose, tonight is the last goddamn time we’re gonna have to bear witness to the monstrosity that is Trump in a debate so I’m here to witness the end. #Debates2020 Image
BTW, feel free to mute this cuz people I’m probably gonna be raging for the next 90 minutes.

You’ve been duly advised. #Debates2020 #debates
Right from the opening, Trump is lying about the pandemic. No, there isn’t a vaccine ready. No, the USA hasn’t turned the corner. No, they don’t have the lowest death rate in the world. He. Is. Lying. Like. An. Ugly. Carpet. #Debates2020

1. Trump repeated a false claim about covid-19 recovery rates that has been circulating online all summer.

Here's the PolitiFact fact-check of the 99% recovery rate claim:

2. A fact-check from my colleague on the $3.5 million claim from Trump:

Once again, media has failed the American people.

They failed to vet Joe Biden. They are as much a part of the #DeepStateSwamp as the slimy DC politicians who’ve been bleeding Americans for decades! Selling us out to China!

James Biden writes to #HunterBiden about @JoeBiden meeting with “the O” about “outrageous acquisitions.”

We know who #TheBigGuy is...

So....who’s the “O” in this email? Obama?

@JoeBiden has been playing footsie with the #CCP.

Yet, @Jack @Twitter still have the @nypost LOCKED out of its Twitter account until it DELETES its initial report on the #LaptopFromHell and #HunterBidenEmails, now confirmed by Lt. Tony #Bobulinski.

Hey, @JoeBiden,

You’ve got some explaining to do!

#HunterBidenEmails are real
#BigGuy is Joe Biden
• Biden 🤥 lied
• VP Biden ✅ kickbacks
• Jim Biden ✅ kickbacks
• Hunter Biden ✅ kickbacks
• Biden = Compromised National Security RISK

Smells like desperation and a level of pathetic never before seen in American history.

Why would Americans believe James Clapper and John Brennan or 50 ‘former’ intel officials who had their fingerprints all over Hillary’s #RussianCollusion delusion?

#DNI John Ratcliffe: "There's no intelligence that supports that and we have shared no intelligence with Chairman Schiff or any other member of Congress that Hunter Biden's laptop is part of some Russian disinformation campaign.”

"I'm not going to do a virtual debate,” says @POTUS. “I'm not going to waste my time on a virtual debate."#debates #Election2020
This after @debates announced @realDonaldTrump and @JoeBiden would participate in the Oct. 15 town hall style event “from separate remote locations.”
“We’ll pass on this sad excuse to bail out Joe Biden and do a rally instead,” says @BillStepien in a statement. #debates

As I warned, Trump’s condition was much more serious than revealed. His condition was deteriorating faster and earlier in the course of illness than is typical in #COVID19. Thus, the unproven antibody cocktail, #remdesivir (used for seriously ill patients), and now dexamethasone.
Patients with @COVID19 are hospitalized a median of 9days after onset of symptoms. Trump’s became symptomatic on Wednesday at the earliest, so today is Day 5. Yet Trump needed oxygen and hospitalization by Day 2.

It’s VERY CONCERNING that Trump was treated with dexamethasone. As @DrEricDing points out, dex is NOT effective in patients NOT on O2. Biggest benefit is for patients on O2/ventilator, less so for O2 only.

On #stochasticterrorism. For years, it's been Trump's plan -- promote violence without saying when/where. His words -- "stand back and stand by" -- were odd enough that his team feigns plausible deniability, but his adherents know exactly what he meant #debates 1/
We shouldn't be afraid to say Trump incites terror. Don't just say violence. That misses the point. It is violence for political purposes, which is terrorism.

“The greatest threat to our election integrity lives at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Trump’s lies, corruption, and disrespect for voters is simply un-American.” #Debates
“Voting-by-mail has been in place since the Civil War, and many states—including those overseen by both Republican and Democratic officials—have incorporated vote-by-mail for decades without fraud or abuse."

¿Qué ha pasado en el primer debate presidencial? Abro HILO con mi análisis: #Debate2020 #DebateNight #debatepresidencial #debates #DebateEU2020
1. Un debate sucio, bronco y embarrado. Un debate presidencial de todo menos presidencial. Fueron 90 minutos de tensión, interrupciones y ataques personales que seguro que a los votantes indecisos no habrá ayudado mucho a decidir su voto. De hecho, habrá generado más dudas.
2. Trump, fiel a su estilo. Ha interrumpido a su rival constantemente, ha lanzado duros ataques a Biden y ha conseguido sacarle de sus casillas. Se mueve como pez en el agua en la confrontación, por lo que su base electoral estará satisfecha.

Tonight's #debates remind me of a lecture I heard in my @LSU undergrad on #rhetoric #justice & #peace

Empathy is key to finding common ground - a thread on #nonviolence & #politics featuring Ghandi, Churchill, Hitler, & MLKjr

1/
Gandhi is best known for nonviolent protests to secure India's independence from the British empire. Perhaps lesser known is that Gandhi wrote letters to Mussolini and Hitler on the eve of WWII to ask them to avoid war

#debates #rhetoric #nonviolence #politics #empathy

From @TIME:

"The only God that Hitler knew was brute force...[yet] Gandhi felt duty-bound to appeal to Hitler and Mussolini because, as human beings, they too had the capacity to distinguish truth from falsehood"

Tonight's debate was a horrible but revealing spectacle. If anyone is undecided after tonight, it's because they are indifferent to the issues. The contrast on stage could not have been starker. There was only one bully, liar, and opportunist on stage. #debates
I doubt anyone who watched today's debate switched from Biden to Trump. But it's very likely the less rabid of Trump's supporters rethought their choice. @JoeBiden came across as dignified, reasonable, substantive, and, where necessary, cutting. #Debate2020
Biden had some good lines. "It is what it is because he is who he is" was good. And "Law and order, with justice" was the best. #Debate2020

If anything this first debate shows that we can't do two more of these. Not with Trump. Pointless to have reasonable conversations with his lies, grandstanding, and interrupting. Better to do town halls with each candidate than go through this embarrassment again. #debates
I feel for Biden right now. You can see him realizing in real time this is pointless and that Wallace isn't going to keep this on track.
If I were Biden's team, I'd be asking right now to scrap the next two debates and instead do town halls. This clown show isn't fair to Biden and, more importantly, it's not fair to the American people.

This #debates format is horrible.

Why don’t we...

1. Separate candidates
2. Have them answer 10 questions
3. With 60 sec to answer each

Then bring them to the stage for an all out brawl for final 10 minutes.
Or just have Trebek moderate in this format

The moderation of this #debate is a sham - everyone knew Trump would come in to be a bully - yet this Fox News stooge posing as a credible journalist had no plan to get this bully under control. Beyond ridiculous and absurd. #debates
Wallace is enjoying the humiliation by his network’s master. This is most likely by design
Fox’s Chris Wallace “moderating” this #debate to enable to get Trump his clean shots with lies in without any interruption or fact check - while discussing topics on right wing frame. Biden’s campaign was negligent to even agree to this setting as the first of three #debates

To the narcissist’s mind, all criticism or questions are attacks. Trump telling Chris Wallace “I guess I’m debating you” is a good example. Anything less than complete obedience is an attack.

#Debates2020
Watching Trump debate a normal human being is like watching a kindergartner who’s somehow taken control of a classroom debate the teacher. It’s so fucking sad.

#Debate2020
Debate format is atrocious and shameful. Choosing this debate format with someone like Trump, you could predict it would be pure chaos. Why choose this format? Pure idiocy.
