President Trump and former Vice-President Biden held their first of three debates in Cleveland with Fox News’ Chris Wallace playing the role of moderator. It was a mess to be sure. How bad was it and what’s the state of the debates after, especially when so many Biden supporters are telling him not to bother with anymore? Seth, Park, Jay, and Grant discuss.

Also, they briefly discuss the sports playoff scene as LeBron James goes for an NBA title with his third team and the Yankees beat up on Indians making it a tough night for Cleveland all around.

Trump-Biden Debate Wrap-Up

 

President Donald Trump faced former Vice President Joe Biden for the first presidential debate Tuesday night in Cleveland. It was a televised headache.

In theory, Chris Wallace was the moderator but immediately proved ineffective at controlling the two septuagenarians bickering for the next 96 minutes. By the end, it felt like the debate was between Trump and a Wallace/Biden tag team.

Trump came out swinging, peppering Biden with interruptions and real-time fact checks. He criticized the Democrat’s 47 years in Washington and pointed out how little he accomplished during that half century.

It’s only nine days ’til Christmas but the news keeps coming and the Three Martini Lunch is ready!  Join Jim and Greg today as they thoroughly enjoy watching Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace call out former FBI Director James Comey for a long string of statements that have been contradicted by the inspector general’s report on the Justice Department and FBI abusing the FISA process.  They also roll their eyes as Democratic Rep. Jeff Van Drew looks for a political lifeline by switching to the Republican Party after announcing he will not vote to impeach President Trump, and the GOP appears ready to accept the man they recently branded a socialist.  And Jim is actually rendered speechless for a moment as disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein insists he isn’t getting enough credit for all he’s done for women.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America learn from the late National Review founder William F. Buckley that the left drew a moral equivalence between the USSR and the United States during the Cold War, and they warn President Trump not to make the same mistake. They also compliment Chris Wallace of Fox News for asking pointed questions about election meddling to Russian President Vladimir Putin, but they fear the interview and Putin’s weak answers will soon be forgotten. And they fret that the left has taken fair criticism of the Trump-Putin summit to preposterous extremes by labeling it as morally equivalent with 9/11, Pearl Harbor, the Cuban Missile Crisis and Kristallnacht.

Presidential Debate Wrap-up

Last night, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton met for what was the third, and mercifully final, presidential debate of this cycle. We knew it was going to be rough when they didn’t even shake hands. (There was pre-debate handshake drama … ugh, we won’t trouble you with it. But it was a thing.)

This debate can roughly be divided into two parts, the first half and the second half. To the credit of the moderator, Chris Wallace, his topics were rock solid. He touched on the Supreme Court, the Second Amendment, and abortion. Wallace did not hesitate to press for answers either. He asked Hillary Clinton directly about voting against a partial birth abortion ban. (No doubt handing Mollie Hemingway a free column.) And Donald Trump, of all people, made a very graphic case against late term abortion.

The inclusion of “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace as one of the moderators for this fall’s presidential debates sparked a firestorm when he told colleague and media reporter Howard Kurtz that it wasn’t his job as a moderator to fact-check the candidates during the actual debate. I do not believe that it is my […]
