Debate Delirium and more — #NebDems News

News that President Trump has tested positive for COVID-19 has turned the presidential race upside down — including raising the question of whether his final two debates with Joe Biden will go forward.

But folks who watched the first debate on Tuesday learned three things.

Trump was awful. Trump was horrifying. And Trump continues to prove his words and actions are an insult to the American people.

Trump bullied and interrupted his way through the entire evening.

From Variety: Trump never relented from this posture. His interruptions were so frequent — and rude — that they turned the entire debate into a train wreck.

From Esquire’s Charles Pierce: This is something that happened: in the very first segment of the very first presidential debate of 2020, the challenger, a former Vice President of the United States, already had called the incumbent president* of the United States a liar and a clown, and he told him to shut up. And he was right to do all three things.

From the APThe 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. … Trump refused to condemn white supremacists who have supported him, telling one such group known as Proud Boys to “stand back, stand by.”

Sunday marks just 30 days until Nov. 3. Please vote.
