We expect it and it is happening, each party claims victory! The referee Chris Wallace couldn’t control this sparring match, and that is really all it was. THIS WAS NOT THE MAIN EVENT. However, Biden may have thought so. What wasn’t surprising was a bias moderator who tossed the gas on the flame that started a California like wild fire that burned out of control all night.
Here is my take on why we saw the interruption contest:
Trump intended to knock Biden off balance, to cause him to lose his focus with the constant interruptions. While Biden shared little to no substance, his greatest victory of the night was he had ‘no MAJOR gaffes’. The interruptions worked for a bit, as Wallace had to remind Biden of the question a couple of times, to get him back on track. Where Biden failed was, with honesty. If you do your fact checking Biden gets the award for LIAR of the night. Of course that was one of the names Biden called Trump. What was surprising, most or all of the name calling came from BIDEN!
Trump on Wallace, (again my take)……… The interruptions were due to what Trump refers to as the fake media. Due to the attacks from the media (Wallace included) Trump also sparred with Wallace on the night. I believe from the start, Trump felt like he was debating 2 people. To an extent he was correct. Wallace was clearly biased, and it was a Trump vs. Biden/Wallace tag team match.
I think Trump’s biggest mistake was, he should have given Biden more time to answer, he didn’t give him enough time to make a gaffe or blow himself up.
On Biden’s remarks how he would have handled the coronavirus: He said he’d make masks, ventilators and distribute etc………. Obviously he has been in his basement too long, Trump did all Biden said he would do.
Maybe this was just that a sparring match, where Trump was feeling out his opponent for the next round. Hopefully Biden answers the bell.
