    So we're on like Donkey Kong. It'll be interesting to see how these debates go.....if indeed Biden actually comes out of his basement or doesn't call a "lid" 5 minutes in.

    Both sides have asked for some funny and telling concessions for the debate. Trump wants to be able to check ears for listening devices and wants a drug test and Biden wants breaks every 30 minutes. Not sure what drug Trump thinks he'll find that will temporarily cure Biden's dementia for the debate, but I think the earpiece check request is valid.

    Either way this should be must watch TV.

      Well I'd imagine that Adderall would help anyone stay focused. Heck even hydrocodone or some opioid variant is known to increase focus. I knew a lawyer who would take that stuff before a deposition.

      The earpiece thing seems like such an easy request. Biden's team has denied the request, which I'm sure will serve to increase the speculation that he's getting help.

      Breaks every 30 minutes? Could be incontinence. I hope it will be for Ferdie Pacheco to patch him up for the next round. If I were Trump, I’d try and figure out pretty quick what really pisses Biden off, open a wound, and start digging. Of course, Biden may just come unhinged on his own. The only thing Obama has said that I liked was “don’t underestimate Joe’s ability to f~%# things up!” This should make for good theatre.

        Adderall doesn't repair or help the damage to the brain that causes dementia although I guess it could stimulate his still functioning brains cells to an extent.

        So if Biden dies of a heart attack during the debate, Trump will be blamed and Harris and her new running mate will get the sympathy vote and we’re all screwed.

          I wanna see Biden respond to one of Trump's trolling slurs with something about taking him out behind the gym and Donald J showing Uncle Joe how effective a properly applied front suplex or gourdbuster is.

          I'm really waiting for Trump tell Joe to his face on worldwide tv that "I've done more in 47 months than you have in 47 years."

              Trump should ask Biden what kind of deal he gets on Aricept on his Medicare Part D plan.

                Biden will do his level best to come across as the

                Trump should do his level best to clarify that:

                1. His COVID response had full input and guidance from Fauci and Birx all the way. He decided early on that the governors were best positioned to determine their states’ responses. He’s sorry that NY, NJ & CT govs failed so miserably early on but we did all we could to support them.

                The health of this country depended on us reopening, again with the governors leading their states. State and local governments need the revenues of taxes to fund their governments.

                2. The dirty trick the left has played of lying and exaggerating about him then blaming him for things he had nothing to do with (Floyd, Taylor etc.) and then blaming him for the division they themselves are causing has to stop.

                Republicans aren’t rioting, burning buildings and shooting cops. Republicans don’t run Minneapolis, Seattle, Portland, Chicago or New York.

                Your administration did NOTHING in the wake of Ferguson. Your rhetoric got cops killed then and it’s getting them killed nos. I’ve already signed criminal justice reform into law snd issued executive orders to address these issues. Im ready to listen to legitimate protests and to do more to make things better - but not under threat from mobs.

                3. Joe, your administration allowed ISIS to form. I defeated them. Your administration treated Israel like they were the problem in the Middle East and treated Iran like they were the solution. I moved our embassy to Jerusalem and secured the first Arab-Israeli peace accord in a generation. You advised against the Bin Laden raid. How can América ever trust your judgment?

                4. The economy? Don’t even go there, Joe.

                *If Trump says “ventilators” more than 5 times, he’s off message.

                  That's a perfectly reasonable request. Theres zero reason to decline other than cheating

                    I suspect both parties will come across as more competent than the opposition is expecting.

                    But I expect Trump to land some heymakers and come out ahead.

                    Hillary had some kind of electronic box hidden under her tent-like pant suit in 2016. "If you ain't cheetin, you ain't a Democrat"

                        If I were Trump I would employ the old Rope a Dope strategy. .... Lay back and let Biden get real comfortable with his scripted answers, that would F with Biden's mind. Then as soon as he gets real relaxed let him have it.
