Trump Won the Debate, But …

BERRIEN COUNTY, Michigan “C’mon” — Joe Biden used that seven different times during Thursday night’s debate, sometimes as “c’mon man,” other times as “c’mon, folks.” It’s a tic, a mannerism, a habit, and you could see Biden get rattled after he made the mistake of bringing up Rudy Giuliani, which opened the door for President […]

Debate Night Open Thread

BERRIEN COUNTY, Michigan Tonight is the second and final presidential debate, which I’ll be watching in the hotel lobby here. During our drive across northern Ohio and Indiana to arrive here this evening, we saw dozens of Trump signs and only one Biden sign. A quick preview of the debate: The stakes couldn’t be higher […]

Pence Trounces Harris in VP Debate; Commission Wants ‘Virtual’ Debate Next?

  The highlight in Wednesday’s debate, of course, was when a fly landed on Vice President Mike Pence’s head. I had turned the sound down low on my office TV, because I was working on an American Spectator column on a different topic, but I’d occasionally check the Twitter reactions and glance over at the […]

Biden and the ‘White Supremacy’ Smear

Kyle Rittenhouse’s lawyer Lin Wood is not happy about this: After last night’s debate, the […]

Biden: Incompetent AND Incontinent?

President Trump had already consented to such an inspection, and the Biden campaign had reportedly agreed to this days […]

Democrats Engage in Angry Shouting Match in Charleston, South Carolina

  The worst debate in the history of American politics: The CBS News moderators came under fire on social media Tuesday as the Democratic presidential debate in South Carolina grew heated, with crosstalk often drowning them out. Meghan McCain compared the debate’s atmosphere to the contentious discussions she faces on “The View,” saying, “these moderators […]

How Bad Was It?

  It was bad — very, very bad: Mike Bloomberg’s millions in campaign spending flew right out the window Wednesday night. The billionaire’s self-bankrolled presidential bid was torn to shreds in the opening minutes of Wednesday’s Democratic debate as his opponents skewered him for his checkered past on sexual harassment and his record on stop-and-frisk. […]

DNC Sold Out to Bloomberg ‘Because He’s Got a Billion F***ing Dollars!’

  Michael Moore at a Bernie Sanders rally Friday in Iowa: They are removing the rule to be on the debate stage, where it says you have to have so many people donating to you — otherwise instead of 27 people on the stage we’d have 270 people on the stage. You had to show […]
