The Commission on Presidential Debates has vowed to change the format of the next candidate clash after Tuesday's debate was called a 'national embarrassment' by Joe Biden but an unrepentant Donald Trump said it was 'fun.'The chaotic 90 minute debate, where the president repeatedly interrupted his Democratic rival and moderator Chris Wallace, was dubbed a 's*** show' and 'dumpster fire' by pundits.In the aftermath, critics demanded changes to the format, with some saying it was the worst presidential debate in history. Wallace was faulted for not being able to control the unruly president, who would not stop talking.

It wasn't the format. It was Chris Wallace that was the problem. It was stupid to choose him as a moderator. Hasn't the debate commission ever watched Chris Wallace?

Isn't that what tapper of cnn referred to it as a "dumpster fire". mike wallace's offspring is worthless. Rush called him a "never Trumper" which is exactly what he is. I am so sick of our Presdient being used as a punching bag for these worthless anuses. looked like china joe was being prompted when he was writing notes during this catastrophe. hillary tried the earpiece thing, too so, why not china joe.

Someone suggested having a kill switch on the mikes (that is, Trump's mike) so they can shut him up if needed. I'd refuse, if I were Trump. The moderators won't ask the tough questions, so Trump has to bring them up himself. I'd get rude, too, if some hack, who was supposed to be "Fair and balanced" kept jumping in front of my opponent like a loyal meat shield. Wallace shou;d't be in journalism, but then again, he's in good company, isn't he?

Yeah, right. Trump's going to let them tie his hands and tape his mouth so he can debate "according to proper decorum". What part of "saving the country from a Socialist coup" do you people still not understand? Try telling Elon Musk to follow the SEC's "proper" guidelines for Twitter use.

Hilarious! Changing the rules because of President Trump? Love it! The best result of last evenings debate is that Crissy "little dweeb" Wallace is now almost universally being described as the worst ever Presidential debate moderator. I hope this reputation sticks. I've watched Crissy interview President Trump several times. Crissy always has a chip on his shoulder, clearly shows his disdain, and - without success - tries to coyly put the President down in petty ways and with cheap shots. Crissy's tricks do not begin to phase Donald Trump as the President is on to Crissy. It's always an unfair fight. Folks ask: "Why does the President go to FOX News to be interviewed by Matthews?" My answer: The President considers the large number of viewers (usually good exposure); the President gets to make his points and, in spite of Crissy's best efforts, Crissy never lays a glove on the President. Although not intended by the President, as a result of last evening's debate, Crissy Matthews is "collateral damage."

The Debate Commission (whoever that is) should simply ask the Debate Coach from someplace like Texas A&M to be the moderator. I rather thought the spirited debate showed America who and what Joke Biden really is. A shallow professional politician with grand delusions and petty, spiteful attitude. Any formal debate would have disqualified Biden for calling his opponent names and telling him to shut up. Extremely rude, but probably explains why Biteme graduated at the bottom of his class in college and law school.

So...one candidate 'breaks' the rules. What are they gonna do? Turn off the debates? Oh, penalize with less time? This is US politics, Electoral politics. It has always been bare knuckles and a fight. Make the rules and watch these two break them. And huff and puff like the big bad wolf at a brick house. The 'rule' changes will have nothing to do with civility. It is ony to deny Trump a chance to get his message out.

Per usual the DM got it wrong. Biden was attacking the President personally and President Trump did not let him get away with that. Of course he rebutted that trash talk. At least the President attempted to talk about policy and the went after the policy of corruption that was the last administration - i.e Hunter Biden, the Russia coup etc.

After dodging creditors for decades, Joe Biden’s slimy grifting brother Frank Biden finally agreed to pay part of the $ 1 million he owes the family of a man killed in a car accident in 1999. Frank Biden, then 43, was sitting in the passenger seat when he shifted the 290hp car into manual and told the driver to ‘punch it’ before hitting and killing Michael Albano in Cardiff, California. Biden allegedly told the driver to ‘keep driving’ and fled the scene of the accident. A passenger reportedly said everyone in the car was drinking. Michael Albano was a single father who left behind two young orphaned daughters.

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla.—NASA’s first new space potty in decades — a $23 million titanium toilet better suited for women — is getting a not-so-dry run at the International Space Station before eventually flying to the moon.It’s packed inside a cargo ship that should have blasted off late Thursday from Wallops Island, Virginia. But the launch was halted with just two minutes remaining in the countdown.Barely 100 pounds (45 kilograms) and just 28 inches (71 centimeters) tall, it’s roughly half as big as the two Russian-built toilets at the space station.

OSHKOSH, Wisc.–The Senate Homeland Security and Finance Committees last week released a joint interim report about Hunter Biden's shady business dealings in Ukraine. The report shows that at least two members of the Obama administration raised concerns about Hunter's position on the board of Burisma, a Ukrainian natural gas company, despite having no natural energy experience. The administration officials also had concerns about Hunter's position because his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, was in charge of America's foreign policy decisions in Ukraine.According to Sen.

Biden stumbled but he did not come across as a bumbling fool.

In two Facebook posts, one of which has since been deleted, Kim Donohue alleged that during a remembrance ceremony in Boston, a year after the April 2013 deadly bombing, then-Vice President Biden began "rubbing" her lower back.

The extraordinary remarks from the two top diplomatic officials at the Vatican came after Pompeo accused the Church in an article and a series of tweets this month of putting its “moral authority” at risk by renewing an agreement with China over the appointment of bishops.
