As I wrote yesterday, these men aren't going to have substantive debates not because they don't want to but because Trump and Biden are intellectually incapable of having substantive debates. Last night was another new low in end-stage America.

The Morning After
Based on what I am seeing on social media, my decision last night to skip the "debates", head to bed early and read for an hour paid off. Without watching any of it, what I gather is that the entire thing was a string of petty insults, name-calling, lying and focus on non-existent threats like "White supremacy". Mostly it sounds like a tie with neither candidate landing a knock-out blow and more importantly Joe Biden's meds worked and he didn't melt down on stage. Trump needs more than ties, Joe Biden holding his own and not pooping his pants on live TV is a win for Biden.
