a president:

    2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden slammed President Trump for failing to demonstrate any empathy for the working class during their first chaotic debate. "Does your president understand at all what you're going through? What so many other people are going through? The question is, does he see you where you are and where you want to be? Does he care?" Biden asked in Cleveland. The two-term vice president's critique of Trump raised his response to the coronavirus pandemic, a New York Times investigation this week that revealed the president hadn't paid any federal income taxes in 10 of the last 15 years, and an Atlantic report this month that alleged he called dead war veterans "losers" and "suckers." “He...
    CLEVELAND (AP) — Fresh off their chaotic debate-stage clash, President Donald Trump and Democrat Joe Biden targeted voters across the Midwest on Wednesday, hitting hard at their contrasting messages as millions of voters cast early ballots. Biden headed out on his most aggressive day on the campaign trail all year, with eight stops planned for a train tour that began mid-morning in Cleveland and was scheduled to end Wednesday night in western Pennsylvania. Trump was to address voters and donors in Minnesota late in the day. Both men were active on social media, too, hoping to use the turbulent debate to score political points. “He lies to you,” Biden said of Trump at an outdoor event along https://apnews.com/hub/election-2020 side...

    A George W. Bush-era chairman of the Republican National Committee says he will vote for Joe Biden over President Trump. Marc Racicot, governor of Montana from 1993-2001, who helmed the national Republican party during the first term of Bush's presidency, said Trump's character is deficient and lacking, and he should be denied a second term. "I regret that I will cause consternation, perhaps in some corners, but even as a Republican, I will not be supporting Donald Trump for president, and I will not be voting for him," Racicot said. "That means I will be voting for Joe Biden for president." Racicot said he would have "disagreements" with Biden, the former two-term vice president and 36-year Delaware...
    Last night during the first presidential debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden, moderator Chris Wallace asked the president to condemn white supremacy and associated groups in the United States. Instead, Trump replied with what some people felt was a call to action for the far-right group the Proud Boys. Dictionary Merriam-Webster called out Trump after his words by tweeting the definitions of the phrases. “‘Stand back’: to take a few steps backwards. ‘Stand by’: to be or to get ready to act #Debates2020,” tweeted the official account. Their expert level trolling received a lot of attention on the platform. It obtained 131,000 “likes,” 53,500 retweets, and thousands of replies. Most accounts that commented appreciated the expertise of the Merriam-Webster...
    New York (CNN Business)"Fox & Friends," the Fox News morning program that has never been subtle about its support for President Donald Trump, played the role of debate coach Wednesday morning following the President's widely-panned performance at his first face-off with Democratic nominee Joe Biden.It was a rare scene in which some of the President's most ardent supporters in conservative media critiqued him, an indication of how poorly Trump fared in the showdown with Biden.Fox News airs pro-Trump propaganda after first debate"Donald Trump blew the biggest layup in the history of debates by not condemning white supremacists," co-host Brian Kilmeade said, referring to the moment in which Trump refused to condemn white supremacists after being asked if he would be...
    Democratic Ohio state Rep. Bernadine Kennedy Kent on Tuesday endorsed President Trump over former Vice President Joe Biden. The endorsement comes after a history of feuding with Ohio Democrats, according to The Cincinnati Enquirer. "Not only am I Black, I am a proud American and delighted to endorse President Trump for re-election," Kennedy Kent, who represents Ohio's 25th District, wrote in her endorsement posted to the president's 2020 campaign website. "Furthermore, I am honored to share with people my intent to vote for him and spread the word on the value of his leadership and his dedication to the American people." She also said that despite her feelings toward the Democratic Party, her "values" align more with Trump's than with "Joe Biden’s divisive rhetoric,...
    The Multnomah County Sheriff, who presides over Portland, said he “never supported” President Donald Trump, despite Trump’s claims to the contrary on the Tuesday debate stage. “In tonight’s presidential debate the President said the ‘Portland Sheriff’ supports him,” Multnomah County Sheriff Mike Reese wrote in a Tuesday tweet. “As the Multnomah County Sheriff I have never supported Donald Trump and will never support him.” “Donald Trump has made my job a hell of a lot harder since he started talking about Portland, but I never thought he’d try to turn my wife against me!,” the elected law enforcement official continued. In tonight’s presidential debate the President said the “Portland Sheriff” supports him. As the Multnomah County Sheriff I have never...
    I’m done trying to figure out what there is left that Donald Trump can do to drive away a significant portion of his base — who are a minority, but, until last night, an unwavering minority. I don’t hold any great expectation that they will have a rethink about their hero, because all he did last night was show his worst, rudest, cruelest side in the first debate of the season. But, for all I know, that’s the side his loyalists like best. He talked constantly when it wasn’t his turn, interrupting the far more polite and dignified Joe Biden. Maybe that’s the kind of “strength” the loyal Trumpers admire. I hope not, but maybe. The time was supposed to...
    (CNN)Every four years Americans are reminded of an institution that is controversial, poorly understood, and yet responsible for selecting the country's only nationally elected officials -- the Electoral College. Controversy over the body has only grown as two of the last five US presidential elections have resulted in outcomes where the person receiving the most votes across the country did not capture the presidency -- and it's possible that Donald Trump could still win in 2020 even if he loses the popular vote by five million. Robert AlexanderIndeed, the Electoral College is among the most debated aspects of America's constitutional system, with over 700 attempts to amend or abolish it since its inception at the federal level. To be sure,...
    Voters across the country are once again cozying up to their neighbors to the north. Google Trends shows that less than an hour into Tuesday's presidential debate between President Trump and Vice President Joe Biden, queries such as "move to Canada" and "how to apply for Canadian citizenship" skyrocketed to their highest levels in years. Searches for Canadian refuge were most popular in the last week in Oregon, Vermont, and Minnesota. Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia had the lowest volume of expatriating searches. The surge in Canada-related queries, however, is only the fourth-largest surge in the past 15 years. Search volume was 3 points higher in November 2004, following President George W. Bush's reelection. Searches were...
    Getty/Tom Williams Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said after the September 29 debate that President Trump "is a white supremacist." President Donald Trump failed to unequivocally condemn white supremacy and far-right group the Proud Boys when asked repeatedly by Chris Wallace, who was moderating the Tuesday night, September 29, presidential debate. Even conservative commentators and lawmakers called the moment a low point of the evening and recommended that Trump make an explicit condemnation of the ideology and groups as soon as possible Wednesday morning. “He’s gotta clarify that right away,” Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade said on Wednesday. Democratic New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, however, said she was not surprised by the viral moment, plainly declaring Tuesday night, “Donald Trump is...

    By Umaru Fofana FREETOWN (Reuters) - Sierra Leone's anti-corruption body has summoned former president Ernest Bai Koroma for questioning under oath over allegations of graft while in office, it said on Wednesday. The summons by the anti-graft commission is the latest move in a campaign by Koroma's successor, President Julius Maada Bio, to call to account the previous administration that Maada Bio says took the country to the brink of economic collapse. It concerns alleged wrongdoing in connection with mining, construction and procurement contracts, and follows an order on Tuesday to bar Koroma and 111 officials from leaving the country after a judge-led inquiry alleged that they illicitly enriched themselves during his 2007-2018 tenure. "The former president’s chief security officer...

    Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade urged President Trump to issue an immediate clarification to his debate comments about white supremacists groups. “Donald Trump ruined the biggest layup in the history of debates by saying not condemning white supremacists. I don’t know if he didn’t hear it, but he’s gotta clarify that right away,” Kilmeade said on Wednesday morning, a day after the first presidential debate between the president and former Vice President Joe Biden. “That's like, are you against evil? Why the president didn’t just knock that out of the park, I’m not sure," he added. Kilmeade's advice to the president came after Trump told the Proud Boys, a right-wing group, to "stand back and stand by." The...
    On Tuesday night, reportedly upwards of 300,000 viewers tuned in to Twitch to watch the match of the century: President Donald Trump vs. Vice President Joe Biden. For 90 minutes, the two presidential nominees used varying degrees of blunt force to make their cases, in hopes of wooing any remaining undecided voters in the lead-up to the 2020 presidential election. Over the course of the night, President Trump lied about his work over the past four years, berated Biden over his political alignment (prompting the VP to at one point exclaim, “Will you shut up, man?”), and, when asked to denounce white supremacy, had nothing to say. For all the nightly mayhem on Twitch’s platform, this was quite unlike...
    White House trade adviser Peter Navarro slammed Chris Wallace on Wednesday by essentially blaming the Fox News anchor for President Donald Trump’s muddled remarks at the first 2020 presidential debate. Navarro gave an interview to MSNBC’s Hallie Jackson the day after the debate, and she pressed him on Trump telling the Proud Boys to “stand back and stand by” when asked to condemn racist groups. “Why didn’t the president denounce more strongly the Proud Boys in that moment, Peter?” Jackson asked. “I think that moment for me underscored just how poor Chris Wallace did as a debate moderator,” Navarro answered. “There’s an expression in boxing, there is a cutman in a corner. Chris Wallace functioned, essentially, as Joe...
    America is still reeling from the first, and terribly insane, presidential debate of the 2020 general election last night. It was ninety minutes of cacophonous conflict, largely led by President Donald Trump’s super aggressive heckling and near-constant interrupting. Frank Luntz’s panel of undecided voters used words like “bully,” “horrid” and “crackhead” to explain Trump’s debate behavior. After the debate ended at 10:40 p.m. Tuesday night, Fox News anchors Martha MacCallum and Bret Baier delivered some even-handed analysis — but not for long. After some commentary and two commercial breaks, Sean Hannity’s show started at 11 p.m., and with it came a series of staggering comments about Trump’s… let’s say physical prowess. Fox News’s opinion personalities have, for the most...
    It looks like we now know how Team Trump will handle the fallout over President Donald Trump’s refusal to condemn white supremacists at Tuesday’s debate: Say Trump actually did condemn white supremacy multiple times. Trump campaign spokesperson Hogan Gidley showed up on CNN’s New Day on Wednesday morning in an attempt to spin the president’s disastrous and chaotic performance, which even his owsupporters conceded was “too hot” while likening the president to a “feral animal.” While news anchors and analysts trashed the entire debate, calling it a “hot mess” and a “shitshow,” much of the media’s attention has been focused on the president outright refusing to disavow far-right extremism and white nationalism when confronted by debate moderator Chris Wallace. Even...
    “The food industry stopped at taste for too long,” says Sara Brito, co-founder and president of the Good Food Media Network. She believes that every bite of food is a product of an interconnected system: While taste is important, the land, plants and animals, farmers and fishermen, purveyors, chefs and restaurant workers must also be compensated and considered. Brito hopes to support this shift in perspective through the nonprofit’s annual Good Food 100 Restaurants List and Industry Impact Report. The 2020 list, released on September 21, seeks to make the purchasing practices of participating chefs and restaurants transparent and recognizes their commitment to buying good food and sourcing sustainably. This year, 131 restaurants from around the country participated, and 38...

    The first trailer has dropped for Bad President, a satire film chronicling Donald Trump's rise to power in 2016 which features porn star Stormy Daniels herself.  The movie directed by Param Gill is set to be released October 12 on video-on-demand, with Jeff Rector taking on the lead role of Trump opposite Eddie Griffin as Satan.  In the trailer, which came out hours before the first 2020 presidential debate on Tuesday, Rector's Trump is seen launching his 2016 campaign by making a deal with Griffin's Devil, who coaches him on how to 'take your powers of BS to a whole new level'.    The film, inspired by real headlines, hits on some of the most memorable real moments of the unprecedented...
    Igor Derysh September 30, 2020 2:48PM (UTC) President Donald Trump was widely denounced by nonpartisan journalists and undecided voters after he derailed the first presidential debate with a torrent of heckles and lies. Trump steamrolled over moderator Chris Wallace of Fox News and seldom allowed Democratic nominee to finish a sentence uninterrupted, though he did little to bolster his own case for a second term. Trump repeatedly and falsely accused Biden of supporting Medicare-for-All, the Green New Deal and defunding the police — which Biden spent an entire primary campaigning against — and attacked his son Hunter as the vice president paid tribute to his late son Beau. : A CNN poll found Biden as the winner of the debate by a margin of...

    Former Obama adviser David Axelrod said the first debate Tuesday evening between President Trump and Joe Biden might foretell the end of the incumbent’s presidency. “I think Donald Trump may have ended his presidency tonight,” Axelrod, also a CNN political commentator, said during the network’s post-debate coverage of the faceoff. The debate itself was chaotic and punctuated by interruptions and the two candidates talking over each other. Moderator Chris Wallace attempted, to little avail, to reign in Trump’s interruptions during the matchup, which featured Biden telling the president to “shut up” at one point. Axelrod called the debate a “spectacle” and suggested that the former vice president may want to cancel the two other planned debates. ...
    Wealthy playboy Aisultan Nazarbayev, 30, bit a police sergeant's arm and stripped in an elderly woman's home The wealthy playboy grandson of Kazakhstan's former president was summoned to court today for breaching the terms of a suspended sentence more than a month after he died. The late Aisultan Nazarbayev, 30, was spared jail last year for biting a police sergeant's arm and stripping in an elderly woman's home. Nazarbayev had been shouting 'terrorist comments' from the rooftops before he sunk his teeth into PS Ross Sambrook's arm at a flat on Covent Garden's Drury Lane in London on June 5, 2019. The officer was left scarred and in need of a tetanus shot when he charged at him after being...

    President Trump was not a fan of how Fox News's Chris Wallace moderated the first presidential debate of the 2020 election cycle. After he was repeatedly interrupted by Wallace throughout the 90-minute debate with former Vice President Joe Biden, Trump claimed that the moderator of Fox News Sunday "had a tough night." He also said in his Wednesday morning tweet, "Two on one was not surprising, but fun," implying that Wallace was attempting to save or defend Biden from the president's criticism instead of being an impartial moderator. Chris had a tough night. Two on one was not surprising, but fun. Many important points made, like throwing Bernie, AOC PLUS 3, and the rest, to the wolves! Radical Left is...
    Washington – Joe Biden's presidential campaign broke its record for the most money raised in a single hour as the first presidential debate with President Trump on Tuesday came to a close, a top official with the Biden campaign said. Kate Bedingfield, Biden's deputy campaign manager, told reporters after the debate ended that the campaign raked in $3.8 million between 10 p.m. and 11 p.m., breaking its own hourly record and the record for ActBlue, the top Democratic online fundraising platform.  Biden and Mr. Trump faced off in Cleveland, Ohio, for the first of three presidential debates before voters cast their ballots for the November 3 presidential election. The debate, however, swiftly turned chaotic as Mr. Trump repeatedly interrupted not...
    Melania and her fellow Trump women did their best to drum up some social media support for the President ahead of the first presidential debate on Tuesday night by coming together to pose for a candid selfie backstage at the event.  The First Lady, 50, delighted her supporters by appearing in the candid snap, which shows her leaning in to pose alongside her stepdaughters Ivanka and Tiffany, and Eric Trump's wife Lara, who appears to have taken the image on her phone.  But while the image may have seemed casual, it sparked quite the stir on Instagram because it is one of just a handful of occasions when Melania has been seen posing alongside her stepdaughters.  Say cheese!

    Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden told President Donald Trump to “shut up” several times during Tuesday night’s debate at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, the first of three matchups between the two.

    On Tuesday night, President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden took the stage for the first presidential debate this year that ended up being a chaotic 90-minute mess of nonstop interjecting and vicious heckling from Trump. Almost immediately, Trump interrupted Biden and moderator Chris Wallace every moment he could, belittling the Democratic nominee and asserting blatant falsehoods and ad hominem attacks. In the rare moments when Wallace attempted to control the debate topics, Trump would talk back, spinning the conversation into a wholly different direction.

    You knew he was going there — and sure enough, he did. Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden — with most of mainstream media squarely behind him — during Tuesday's debate with President Donald Trump invoked the tired, long-ago debunked hoax that Trump referred to neo-Nazis and white nationalists at the 2017 riots in Charlottesville, Virginia, as "very fine people." What was said? "Close your eyes, remember what those people looked like coming out of the fields, carrying torches, their veins bulging ... just spewing anti-Semitic bile and accompanied by the Ku Klux Klan — a young woman got killed — and they asked the president what he thought, he said there were very fine people on...
    President Donald Trump described Tuesday night’s presidential debate with former Vice President Joe Biden as “fun” despite repeatedly crossing with the moderator, Fox News host Chris Wallace. “Chris had a tough night,” Trump wrote on Twitter, sharing a New York Times article about Wallace’s performance. “Two on one was not surprising, but fun.” The president frequently interrupted Biden during the debate, leading Wallace to repeatedly interrupt the president to demand that he follow the rules. Biden repeatedly told Trump to “shut up” and described the president as a “clown,” “the worst president America has ever had,” even called him a “racist.” Trump described Biden as not smart. “Don’t ever use the word smart with me,” he said. “Nothing smart about...

    CNN anchor John Berman and Trump campaign press secretary Hogan Gidley did their best impersonations of Tuesday night's debate during a heated interview on Wednesday morning. The two men argued over whether Trump had adequately condemned white supremacy and the far-right group known as the Proud Boys. Berman claimed that Trump "didn't call them out" while Gidley noted that the president has condemned white supremacists in the past. "John, when he was asked would he disavow them, would he condemn them, he said 'sure' three times in the one clip you just played. I don’t know how many other ways you want him to condemn these types," Gidley said. The interview devolved into cross-talk for the next...

    By MARTIN CRUTSINGER, AP Economics Writer WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. economy plunged at a record rate in the spring but is poised to swing to a record increase in the quarter that just ended. The Commerce Department reported Wednesday that the gross domestic product, the economy’s total output of goods and services, fell at a rate of 31.4% in the April-June quarter, only slightly changed from the 31.7% drop estimated one month ago. The new report, the government’s last look at the second quarter, showed a decline that was almost four times larger than the previous record-holder, a fall of 10% in the first quarter of 1958 when Dwight Eisenhower was president. Economists believe the economy will expand at...

    CLEVELAND -- The first debate between President Donald Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden deteriorated into bitter taunts and near chaos Tuesday night as Trump repeatedly interrupted his opponent with angry - and personal - jabs that sometimes overshadowed the sharply different visions each man has for a nation facing historic crises.In the most tumultuous presidential debate in recent memory, Trump refused to condemn white supremacists who have supported him, telling one such group known as Proud Boys to "stand back, stand by." There were also heated clashes over the president's handling of the pandemic, the integrity of the election results, deeply personal attacks about Biden's family and how the Supreme Court will shape the future of the nation's health...
    There was no shortage of wild interjections during Tuesday night’s first presidential debate between President Trump and Vice President Biden, and now Biden’s campaign has decided to go ahead and print one on a T-shirt. The shirts, which are currently available at the Biden Victory Fund’s online site, feature the phrase “Will You Shut Up, Man” — a reference to a remark Biden made during one of the several times President Trump interrupted the former vice president over the course of the evening.

    (CNN)President Donald Trump took four years of personal venom and outright lies and stuffed it all into 90 minutes of chaotic sparring with former Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday night -- a performance that, for all its sound and fury, even his allies said afterward was unlikely to change the dynamic of a contest that polls show he is losing.One of the biggest issues Trump has faced in the polls: a large gender gap. "The main thing keeping an anvil on Trump's head in terms of job approval all this four years has been women. He does fine among men, but women have never given him high marks," said Scott Jennings, a longtime adviser to Senate Majority Leader Mitch...

    CLEVELAND (CBS) — President Donald Trump brought up shootings in Chicago as he attacked Democratic rival Joe Biden on the issue of law and order in the first 2020 presidential debate Tuesday night. Moderator Chris Wallace of Fox News – a former CBS 2 reporter – asked a question about the rise in homicides in America and President Trump laying the blame on Democratic governors and mayors. Wallace noted that there have been equivalent spikes in Republican-led cities such as Tulsa and Fort Worth. President Trump replied, “I think it’s a party issue.” He then quickly launched into his often-repeated talking point about Chicago gun violence. “If you look at Chicago, what’s going on in Chicago, where 53 people were...
    Robert JohnsonOlivia Michael | CNBC Black Entertainment Television founder Robert Johnson told CNBC on Wednesday he's viewing the election between President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden through the lens of being a businessman.  "Where I come out as a businessman, I will take the devil I know over the devil I don't know anytime of the week," Johnson said on "Squawk Box."  Johnson, when pressed, refused to outright endorse Trump, instead saying as a longtime corporate executive he knows how the president will react to important issues of the day such as coronavirus and he does not have a handle on Biden would run the country. "I know what President Trump has done and what he's said he will...
    Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who helped prep President Trump for Tuesday's blistering debate, said his performance was "too hot" while slamming Democratic nominee Joe Biden as "very shaky."

TRUMP- BIDEN PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE IN CLEVELAND: TOP 5 MOMENTS "He looks very shaky at many, many times during this debate.

    Heather Digby Parton September 30, 2020 1:00PM (UTC) At the conclusion of the first debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden on Tuesday night, CNN's Dana Bash gave the best review of the proceedings: "That was a sh**show." Her colleague Jake Tapper who described it as "a hot mess inside a dumpster fire inside a train wreck. That was the worst debate I have ever seen. In fact, it wasn't a debate. It was a disgrace. It's primarily because of President Trump, who spent the entire time interrupting [and] lying." Or maybe Rachel Maddow's assessment on MSNBC — a "monstrous cavalcade of increasingly wild and obscene lies" — draws the most accurate picture of what went down in Cleveland on Tuesday night. However...
    WASHINGTON – The U.S. economy plunged at a record rate in the spring but is poised to swing to a record increase in the quarter that just ended. The Commerce Department reported Wednesday that the gross domestic product, the economy’s total output of goods and services, fell at a rate of 31.4% in the April-June quarter, only slightly changed from the 31.7% drop estimated one month ago. The new report, the government’s last look at the second quarter, showed a decline that was almost four times larger than the previous record-holder, a fall of 10% in the first quarter of 1958 when Dwight Eisenhower was president. Economists believe the economy will expand at an annual rate of 30% in the...
    Donald Trump refused to say whether he would accept the results of the November election during the presidential debate on Tuesday night, The Daily Mail reported. “This is going to be a fraud like you’ve never seen,” he told viewers, as he cited mail-in ballots. “If I see tens of thousands of ballots being manipulated, I can’t go along with that.” According to the publication, more than 80 million Americans are expected to cast their vote by mail during the 2020 presidential elections due to the coronavirus pandemic. “I want an honest ballot count,” he said, as he warned that his supporters would “watch very carefully” for possible voter fraud at the polls. Trump also revealed he was “counting” on...
    The emerging mainstream media consensus is, predictably, that Democratic nominee former Vice President Joe Biden won the first presidential debate of the 2020 campaign. The commentators and pundits also seem to agree that the debate was, to quote CNN's Dana Bash, a "s**t show." Headlines reported by CNN's senior media reporter Oliver Darcy describe the debate as "pure chaos" and "mayhem." President Donald Trump's performance in particular is under fire, variously being characterized as "monstrous," "abusive," "horrific," and a "disgrace." Leading a panel discussion after the debate, CNN's Jake Tapper called it "a hot mess inside a dumpster fire inside of a train wreck." "That was the worst debate I...
    Proud Boys founder Gavin McInnes reacted in real-time to President Donald Trump’s controversial debate remarks about the far-right extremists by feigning outrage that Trump would presume to issue orders to the group. In a now-infamous exchange during Tuesday night’s presidential debate in Cleveland, both former Vice President Joe Biden and moderator Chris Wallace challenged President Trump to denounce white supremacists and right-wing militias, but when the two men pressed Trump to actually say the words, he went in a different direction. “Proud Boys, stand back and stand by,” Trump said, then quickly added, “But I’ll tell you what, somebody’s got to do something about Antifa and the left because this is not a right-wing problem.” The moment caused instant and intense outrage on...
    With Election Day just 34 days away and the first presidential debate over, President Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden have entered the final leg of the 2020 campaign. Following Tuesday night's raucous and fiery debate in Cleveland — Biden lambasted Trump as a "clown," while Trump heckled the former vice president over his ties to democratic socialists and lack of support among law enforcement  — the candidates will travel to 2020 battleground states to continue to appeal to voters. The 90-minute debate marked the first meeting between Trump and Biden in months, but within moments of beginning, the showdown descended into chaos as the two sparred over the coronavirus pandemic, health care, the economy, racism, law and order and other issues.

    President Donald Trump's ninety minutes-plus Mussolini impression on September 29, which had originally been advertised as a debate with former Vice President Joe Biden, didn't do any favors for Cory Gardner. Throughout his campaign, Colorado's incumbent Republican senator has tried to come across as a chummy regular guy in his own ads while relying on highly funded surrogates to portray his opponent, ex-Governor John Hickenlooper, as a cross between Genghis Khan and Hannibal Lecter. Now, however, Gardner must figure out a way to maintain his friendly image even as he embraces a leader who came across during last night's performance as the sort of person from whom responsible parents would shield their children if they encountered him on the street....
    The first presidential debate of the 2020 election has been described as “chaotic,” a generous characterization. President Donald Trump was loud and belligerent, while former vice president Joe Biden responded by mocking the president, calling him a “clown.” One of the most stunning moments of the night was when Trump refused to condemn white supremacy and white supremacists.  People sit and watch a broadcast of the first debate between President Donald Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden at The Abbey, with socially distanced outdoor seating, in West Hollywood.

    Reaction to Tuesday night’s presidential debate between Republican President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden, his Democratic challenger, split along partisan lines but also featured sharp criticism of how the event, often a verbal free-for-all, played out.  Ronna McDaniel, the chairwoman of the Republican National Committee, tweeted after  the debate that “For ninety minutes, @realDonaldTrump made a confident, commanding and compelling case for his re-election and took Joe Biden to task for supporting radical policies that would raise taxes, destroy jobs and make our communities less safe.” For ninety minutes, @realDonaldTrump made a confident, commanding and compelling case for his re-election and took Joe Biden to task for supporting radical policies that would raise taxes, destroy jobs and make our...
    BEIJING (AP) — “Chaos, interruptions, personal attacks and insults,” one outspoken Chinese newspaper editor said of the U.S. presidential debate. An Australian counterpart said it was “swamped” by the “rancor engulfing America.” The first debate pitting Republican President Donald Trump against Democratic challenger Joe Biden was not a highlight of political oratory in the eyes of many overseas. Yet interest ran high for its potential impact on what may be the most consequential U.S. election in years, now just over a month away. Observers looked for possible impact on financial markets and currencies, although the reaction was muted overall. Share prices slipped further in Japan and the dollar weakened against the Japanese yen and the euro, while...

    MOSCOW (Reuters) - Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan discussed the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in a phone call on Wednesday, Armenia's government press office said. Iran shares borders with both Armenia and Azerbaijan, whose forces have been involved in renewed clashes over the breakaway region of Nagorno-Karabakh, which is inside Azerbaijan but run by ethnic Armenians. "Iran's president expressed concerns on the tension between its two bordering countries and continuing military actions," the Armenian government statement said. The two leaders also discussed Turkey's participation in the conflict, something Ankara's ally Azerbaijan has denied.

    President Donald Trump might have choked on his Egg McMuffin on Wednesday when tuning into his favorite morning show. Fresh from an aggressive debate performance which his campaign chalked up as a victory before it had even happened, Trump most likely tuned into Fox & Friends expecting the kind of sycophantic flattery he’s become accustomed to over the past four years. However, even the president’s pals at Fox thought his debate performance, well, kinda sucked. All three of the hosts—Brian Kilmeade, Steve Doocy, and Ainsley Earhardt—made clear how deflated they felt the morning after the debate. In particular, Kilmeade seemed despondent that Trump blew the big moment in the one-on-one with Biden: When he failed to grasp the opportunity to...

    Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade shared concern over President Donald Trump’s inability to outright condemn white supremacists at the first 2020 presidential debate. Trump drew notice on Tuesday night when moderator Chris Wallace pressed him to denounce white supremacists and militia groups, and the president meekly told the Proud Boys to “stand back and stand by” before railing against Antifa. The comments drew instant outrage from critics who called it the latest example of Trump’s refusal to condemn racist groups. As Kilmeade ripped Joe Biden for his conduct at the debate on Wednesday, he eventually said “Donald Trump ruined the biggest layup in the history of debates by not condemning white supremacists.” “I don’t know if he didn’t hear it,...
    Reuters September 30, 2020 0 Comments Down in the opinion polls with five weeks to go until the November election, U.S. President Donald Trump sought to use the first presidential debate to bully his way back into the race. Repeatedly interrupting and sparring with opponent Joe Biden, the Republican Trump tried to knock the Democratic former vice president off his feet Tuesday night and alter the dynamic of a contest he has been losing for months. It was unlikely the president succeeded, largely because of his own combative and chaotic behavior but also because the insult-filled and often fact-free affair may have left the few undecided voters watching at home more dispirited than engaged. “It’s doubtful that this mentally...
