Hard to figure out who to watch first -
Trump - who will be crazed
Biden - who will keep it together, thoughtful, and in command.

I hope that there is a huge gaff for the T…like nuts. Not a stretch.

Who are you watching first??

of course…start with Joe

I guess I’m just going Biden because I’d like to learn something new

He’s holding it together, and making sense. And he speaks in complete sentences.

Even if he is low-key, and a slight stumbler…but he is sounding Presidential

Sigh.

Oh, you may learn something new from Trump. It may not be anything based in reality, though…

Yeah, maybe! I’ve settled on Biden TV + Trump Twitter. This is a mess.

Here’s a compare and contrast…

And here’s Mr. Smarta$$ with his vindictive, bullying ways…Not music to Suburban Women’s ears for sure.

Earlier, Trump ducked a question about COVID-19, saying he did not remember when he last tested negative. He also defended holding a White House event with Amy Coney Barrett, after which numerous attendees tested positive.

Trump bristled as Guthrie continued to press him on his response to the virus.

I knew you’d be doing this,” he said. “I know you very well.

About 60 voters, all wearing masks, attended the event at the Pérez Art Museum in Miami.

The dueling events set up a ratings battle, as Trump hopes to tout the enthusiasm behind his campaign.

At a rally in Greenville, N.C., earlier in the day, Trump called the event a “con job.”

“You know, I’m being set up tonight,” he said. “I’m doing this town hall with ‘Concast,’ because it’s a con job… It’s NBC, the worst.”
