Last night, I started coming across articles summarizing the town hall before they were even over.This sums it up nicely:
Bloomberg's Ryan Teague Beckwith: "I just switched over from the Trump to Biden town halls and it's like switching from 'Ancient Aliens' to PBS NewsHour."
We have been so bombarded by Trump nonsense that when someone spends time to answer a question we say they "droned on"The town halls offered a different format for the two candidates to present themselves to voters, after the pair held a chaotic and combative first debate late last month. The difference in the men’s tone was immediate and striking.
Trump was Trump. He was loud and argumentative, rebuking his FBI director, fighting with the host, Savannah Guthrie, complaining about the questioning — and eventually saying for the first time that he would honor the results of a fair election, but only after casting an extraordinary amount of doubt on the likeliness of fairness.
Biden, meanwhile, took a far different, softer approach with audience questions. The former vice president, who struggled growing up with a stutter, stuttered slightly at the start of the program and at one point squeezed his eyes shut and slowed down his response to clearly enunciate his words. At times his answers droned on.
President 'Who Me?!?' sure didn't seem to know much with that big beautiful brain of his.Trump defaulted to his usual "never heard of them" schtick when asked about Q-anon. He says that everytime he asked about supporters that are very controversial or worse.
This morning Fox was backing him up by having their "journalists" mispronounce their name. Bartolomeo said it like she spelling it calling them Q A N O N with a slight pause between each letter like she had never seen it before.
This is journalist code for didn't give us an easy soundbite. All problems and their answers now need to be able to be summed up in 128 characters or less or it is to boring for the average American.We have been so bombarded by Trump nonsense that when someone spends time to answer a question we say they "droned on"
Yeah I skipped both and have done little reading. There is nothing that will prevent me from voting Biden at this point. Constancy vs Me! Me! Me! Me! Me!I'm guessing Trump did really bad last night based on the salty poster having a conniption and rage posting multiple threads.
And it is just so stupid. His answer to the ACA Repeal and Replace was just so bad. 'I would like to replace it with something much better and much cheaper!' Of course you would, but the question is that in 4+ years you have not come up with anything better, why do you think you will now? What are you going to do when your administration knocks the ACA down and you still have nothing?It's downright painful to watch him slip and slide his way around his being interrogated.

Trump set himself up to be setup by someone else to set him up.Trump set the stage.
The president used an afternoon rally to go after the network’s personalities and claim he was being “set up.”www.politico.com
I watched most of Trump's town hall. I had to take my blood pressure meds. After it was over I took 2, not 1, but 2 xanax (generic - brand name is too expensive). BTW, my medical insurance through Florida Blue is going up next year. Insulin is like water, it's free! Then I started flipping through the channels and landed on Fox news. Laura was giving Trump a blowy. When she took a breath she bloviated how wonderful Trump was and she wanted his children. Then she continued his blowy. I couldn't take anymore so I flipped to the Hallmark channel to watch a love story rerun.
didn't he also say that he knows they are "about pedophiles or something"?Saying you haven't heard of Qanon is damning at this point. It's like saying you haven't heard of the KKK or ISIS.
The only reasonable thing to do is denounce Qanon support (the qanon folks wouldn't be offended as they would just say he's doing it for show) but he's just so stupid...
This!!!Watching Trump now is exactly the same as watching him back in 2016 what with his lies, his deep state conspiracy theories, his "radical left, antifa, everything is the fault of Clinton, Obama, the Dems and now Biden".
This never ending looping of lies, avoidance and distractions is just so boring. It's like watching the same 'ol soap op episode over and over and over again to the point where commercial breaks are refreshing, more informative and much more factual than watching Trump play his air accordion all night long.
It's downright painful to watch him slip and slide his way around his being interrogated.
Smarty pants liberal elite computer programmers built bots to drive up Biden's numbers. Trump's numbers represent REAL Americans. Like from the heartland and shit. People of the earth, with salt in their veins. Honest hard working meth users who scrimp and save to put the the confederate flag on their pickup truck with the busted exhaust that leaks a little into the cab. That they drive on the roads that were only paid for by their own taxes and not any subsidies from big liberal leaching cities.Whoops:
The ratings are in. Get ready for a twitter-tantrum.
The Trump town hall averaged 10.6 million viewers on the NBC broadcast network. On MSNBC, Trump reached 1.74 million viewers, and on CNBC, about 671,000 viewers. So Trump's gross audience across the three channels was 13.1 million, about one million fewer than Biden's audience on ABC alone.
Add to that that Biden's YouTube live stream of the event far excised the number of views Trump got and boom... Trump got trumped.
At the end of Trump's town hall, the NBC News YouTube channel showed 153,660 viewers were watching. ABC News's YouTube channel showed 507,445 viewers at the end of Biden's town hall.
Joe Biden's town hall on ABC averaged 14.1 million viewers on Thursday night, easily surpassing the Nielsen ratings for President Trump's town hall on NBC.www.cnn.com
