So now we’re back to having an actual presidential debate tonight, after last week’s dueling town halls between Joe Biden and Donald Trump. Considering how their town hall ratings went, Trump is lucky that Biden will also be there tonight, or else nobody might watch.
Seriously, is there anyone who’s looking forward to this debate? If you’re rooting for Joe Biden, you’re just looking to get past tonight with Biden’s lead intact. If you’re rooting for Donald Trump, you just know he’s going blow it tonight in some weird and embarrassing way. And if you’re clueless enough that you’re still undecided at this point, you’re definitely not watching tonight anyway, are you?
Considering how weak, exhausted, and feeble Donald Trump looked during the 60 Minutes footage he leaked earlier today, you have to wonder which Trump will even show up tonight. If it’s the defeated and whiny Trump from 60 Minutes, Biden will steamroll him. If Trump juices up on steroids tonight and comes out swinging, it’ll likely be a repeat of the first debate. But if Trump were still able to juice up, wouldn’t he be doing it? We’ll see.
