Well, if you followed the rules (that your own campaign farking agreed to) that were in place the first time, they wouldn't need additional rules.

Trump: Law and order! Law enforcement!

Debate Moderator: Follow the rules.

Trump: No! You can't make me!

The Debate Commission needs to put its foot down. Don't back down from Trump. If he cancels, don't you dare cancel the debate. Give Biden the full 90-minute town hall commercial-free.

He clearly said "Law & Order" not "Rules & Regulations."

Why are we still amplifying his microphone by repeating his assertions that he won? He was going to assert that no matter what. And he still will.

Who. Cares?

Again, he set out to accomplish making Biden look overwhelmed and unable to keep up. Trump was establishing his brand of dominance. Speak last, hit hard, and let the other guy wallow in the blood spilled. And he was wildly successful in accomplishing that. He suffocated Biden.

I get where you're coming from, but I tried doing this about the actual Presidency and guess what, he's still President.

The best thing to do is pretend he won just like he is. Then campaign accordingly. Don't take anything at all for granted, that's what we learned in 2016.

"The seven deadly sins of narcissism were first described by psychotherapist Sandy Hotchkiss and they include the following:

Shamelessness- Shame is the underlying factor in all cases of unhealthy narcissism. In a healthy person, shame is processed in a normal manner, whereas narcissists have difficulty processing this feeling in a healthy way. Narcissists also tend to inflict shame on other people, a concept referred to as projection.

Magical thinking - Narcissists tend to perceive themselves as perfect and flawless. The distorted thinking and illusion that causes narcissists to feel this way is referred to as magical thinking.

Arrogance - Arrogance and a disregard for other people's feelings are typical characteristics of narcissism. Narcissists often have a low self esteem which they try to relieve by insulting or degrading others. This helps to re-inflate their ego when they are feeling deflated or lacking in worth.

Envy - Due to their sense of being superior to others, narcissists may feel insecure when faced with another person's ability, which they may try to belittle by demonstrating contempt or dismissal of it.

Sense of entitlement - A sense of being perfect and superior means narcissists often expect to receive favorable treatment and for people to admire and agree with their opinions or actions. Failure to comply may be perceived as an attack on their authority and superiority. A person who flouts their authority is often considered to be a difficult or awkward person by the narcissist, who will proceed to demean them or their opinion, especially in front of others. Defiance can also trigger anger in the narcissist which is referred to as "narcissistic rage."

Exploitation - This refers to the narcissist's tendency to exploit others and show no regard or empathy for their emotions or interests. This often occurs when the other person is in a subservient position, where it is awkward or impossible to resist the narcissist. On some occasions, this subservience is only assumed rather than real.

Lack of boundaries - Most narcissists fail to understand their boundaries and recognise that other people are individuals rather than extensions of themselves. Those who support the self-esteem of the narcissist are expected to always do so, with the narcissist failing to recognize the independence of the other person."

Translation: Nobody stopped me last time. Why would I follow any "rules" now?

I don't understand what people don't understand about this. Negotiating with an asshole is a waste of time. The only time they will ever submit is when you have something on them: debt, damaging information, jail time, something like that.

Stop pretending that President Orange Sweaty Dick is going to knuckle under. He won't. Just cancel this stupid, pointless waste of time. Nobody wants to hear from him. Stop giving him opportunities to shiat all over everything. Just cancel this stupid shiat right now and deny him the "platform" for his stupid. Or, you know, continue to "negotiate" and watch it all be a giant waste of time when he does a repeat of his first "triumph" over Biden.

What a weak whiny wanker.

A total tiddy baby.

Look Dumbald, we get it.

You broke the rules so badly at the last debate the commission had an overwhelming demand from the public to change them and so they did and now you are pissed rhat you can't cheat and are playing the victim again.

Just stahp.

TBH, it doesn't particularly help Biden to have Trump barred from demonstrating his most offensive impulses.

That doesn't impress anyone but Trump's hardcore base; and those imbeciles would cheer if Trump dropped trou on stage, took a shiat in his hand, and threw it at Biden.

Why not agree to the rules? You sure as Dark didn't abide by them last time, you petulant child.
 
2020-10-01 6:43:39 PM  
Change the debate format to one where the two minute response to each question is pre-recorded and let them debate the way they each answered those questions in the most gentlemanly manner they can manage live on stage. Trump being an ass in that situation wouldn't allow him to bully his opponent to the point that articulating plans and policy strategy would be impossible.

Ambivalence: Well they aren't exactly asking for your permission, jackass.


I'm almost tempted to argue that they should let him continue the way he wants to....my conservative neighbors are now saying they are writing in Mickey Mouse after watching the debate.

Let him suck again...and again.

Trump isn't doing any more debates. His ego can't take it.

On one hand, using the same rules is not fair for Trump, on the other hand he thinks that this is fine. Fair is fair but should we really be trying to help a fascist against himself?
 
2020-10-01 6:45:39 PM  
The problem is that the Commission said it is "changing" the rules.

They aren't.

They are merely ENFORCING the existing rules. The rules in any debate are always not to interrupt the opponent. While stringent enforcement hasn't been needed in the past, the fact that one of the participants can't control himself to abide by the rules himself means that the moderator will ENFORCE the rules more forcefully, by turning off the mic.
 
2020-10-01 6:46:19 PM  
"I just hope there's a way in which the debate commission can control the ability of us to answer the question without interruption," Biden had said.

That was Trump's only strategy. Lord knows he can't run on either his record or his plans for a second term. But Biden didn't wilt or lose control. Biden looked like an adult. Trump looked like an absolute lunatic and did himself more damage in that one debate than he had in months.

You know what. Screw it, keep the current rules in place. He will just keep making an ass out himself.

And he was so manly and bold and macho and strong and so so dreamy...................   oooohhhh..... ahhhhh......

No negotiating with the orange derp-blob.

Make him wear a muzzle that can only be loosened (by remote control) by the moderator. And automatically tightens up again after two minutes.

And nail his damned feet to the floor!

Will be so funny to see Trump cut off after the let's say, after the10 second warning light goes red mid sentence...
Then when his mic turns back on he's mid sentence about something else... Still rambling.

I can't smart this enough. For either person. You drop out? You just gave all your time to your opponent. Simple. Also, seriously why is cutting the mic's even an issue? That should have been done 30 years ago. You get 2 mins....then YOU get 2 mins. Then 5 mins of open rebuttal..or whatever.  BUT. During your 2 minutes to respond, why is there even an option for the other to speak.  Debates are supposed to have rules. If you can't follow them then you must be censured.  These are supposed to be debates, not a heated argument had over thanksgiving dinner.  Just stick with the farking rules. They both failed in that respect, but Trump was far more egregious. Solve the problem. Cut the mics. Let them speak. IMHO

Whould not be surprised if he brought a mega phone. I really hope he does, I want to see a total meltdown from him. It will be horrible and glorious.
