Debate night turns into fight night in Trump v. Biden

Empower Wisconsin | Sept 30, 2020

By Marisa Schultz, Fox News 

President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden kicked off their first fiery presidential debate sparring over everything from the Supreme Court nomination, coronavirus and Biden’s sons, with Fox News moderator Chris Wallace admonishing Trump several times for interrupting.

The first showdown between Trump, 74, and Biden, 77, devolved in attacks on Hunter Biden, smarts and schoolyard namecalling. As Trump went on offense, Biden tried to shut him down by calling the president a “clown” and a “liar.”

Wallace scolded Trump repeatedly for not following the debate rules by interrupting and the veteran newsman often played the role of a wrestling referee rather than a moderator.

“I hate to raise my voice, but why should I be different than the two of you,” Wallace said.

Trump came out swinging, but Biden held his own and didn’t fall into previous debate pitfalls where he cut his time short or stumbled to get out responses. The two men often talked over each other in a brawl that got unwieldy at times.

Trump touted his record in the White House on boosting the economy and how he handled the pandemic, proclaiming: 

“There has never been an administration or president who has done more than I’ve done in a period of three and a half years, and that’s despite the impeachment hoax.”

But Biden said under Trump the country has become weaker, sicker, poor, and more violent.

“You’re the worst president America has ever had,” Biden declared at one point.

Biden sought to define himself as the steady leader of the Democratic Party and distanced himself from Bernie Sanders and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal.

“You just lost the left,” Trump told Biden.
