Is it too late to get those parrots into the debate hall?A cadre of swearing parrots was removed from a zoo in England after they directed a tirade of curse words at customers and staff https://t.co/twRsLJ0cw4— The Daily Beast (@thedailybeast) September 30, 2020
I didn’t have “Trump challenging somebody’s numbers.” But I expected “SOCIALISM!” And Trump arguing about 200,000 is not that bad.Ready to play along with your debate bingo card? pic.twitter.com/sj4EX8DMRE— MeidasTouch.com (@MeidasTouch) September 30, 2020
Now he’s arguing with the moderator. And Biden laughs as Trump spews bullshit. Could be worse. And points for Biden calling Trump a clown.The president is bouncing around, moving from illnesses in the military to covid deaths without saying that's what he was referring to.— Maggie Haberman (@maggieNYT) September 30, 2020
Trump is debating Chris Wallace— Rick Wilson (@TheRickWilson) September 30, 2020
“Would you shut up, man?” “ Keep yappin’, man.” Seems appropriate.This is pathetic. Trump is sad.— Rick Wilson (@TheRickWilson) September 30, 2020
Yeah, I think he is.Donald Trump is rattled. #Debates2020— The Lincoln Project (@ProjectLincoln) September 30, 2020
"Everything he is saying is simply a lie. I am not going to call out every lie. Everyone knows he is a liar"— Red (@Redpainter1) September 30, 2020
Wallace "Will you let him finish?"
Biden "He doesn't know how to do that"
LAUGHING SO HARD.#Debates2020
"Will you shut up man? This is so unpresidential"— Susan Glasser (@sbg1) September 30, 2020
-- definitely a debate line for the ages
(He’s laughing again.)Biden should keep laughing at Trump. It’s the one thing he can’t take.— Rex Chapman🏇🏼 (@RexChapman) September 30, 2020
I can’t believe Trump walked into the swine flu. Oh wait, I do."It is what it is because you are what you are." Biden on 200k dead from covid.— Greg Miller (@gregpmiller) September 30, 2020
Nixon lost the debate to JFK on appearance. The “just kidding “ defense! Do I have to drink? 🍸Pouty is a great look, Donnie. So hot.— Rick Wilson (@TheRickWilson) September 30, 2020
“Don’t ever use the word ‘smart’ with me”? Why, because you don’t understand it?Biden speaking directly to the country. Effective. Trump is just interrupting and being a complete asshole. I know that’s a strategy, but I can’t imagine who this is appealing to other than his base. #Debates2020— Tom Nichols (@RadioFreeTom) September 30, 2020
“No serious person said the opposite.”
Am I supposed to elect the President based on the size of his crowds? Trump opposed closing the economy. The states did it anyway. The increase in employment is twice nothing (still nothing). And he names states where Biden is leading.This isn't a President.— Rick Wilson (@TheRickWilson) September 30, 2020
He's a sweaty, petulant child with logorrhea.
Trumps central plan for this debate is to scream and stomp his tiny kitten-heel boots— Rick Wilson (@TheRickWilson) September 30, 2020
“People want to be safe.” “I brought back football.” “I paid millions of dollars in taxes.” “Show us your tax returns.” When do we get to see them? “ When they’re finished.”“So far we’ve had no problem whatsoever.”- @realDonaldTrump on his rallies. A reminder. Herman Cain died from Covid after attending a rally.— Craig Melvin (@craigmelvin) September 30, 2020
”You’re the worst President we’ve ever had! Come on!”so far, if this debate changes anything, it won't be to help donald trump. #Debates2020— Alex Castellanos (@alexcast) September 30, 2020
Eh, you don’t swing at every pitch.real missed opportunity for Biden to point out that Trump *did* hold an indoor rally, and that a former Republican presidential candidate died of Covid-19 soon thereafter— Tim Alberta (@TimAlberta) September 30, 2020
Takeaway: Chris Wallace would not be able to stop my kids from fighting— Asha Rangappa (@AshaRangappa_) September 30, 2020
Remember all those people who kept insisting Trump was playing five dimensional chess when for his entire adult life Trump’s only move has been flipping every chess board over and eating the pieces?— Molly Knight (@molly_knight) September 30, 2020
“He doesn’t want to let me answer because he knows I have the truth.” “ It’s hard to get any word in with this clown.” 🤡 “Frankly, you’ve been doing more interrupting than he has.”"It turns out that in Obama's final 3 years as president, more jobs were created -- 1.5 million more jobs -- than in the first three years of your presidency" -- Chris Wallace to Trump— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) September 30, 2020

Donald Trump is a child. He's weak. He's unhinged. He's desperate.— The Lincoln Project (@ProjectLincoln) September 30, 2020
And he's sweaty.
Unless you don’t believe you are 10 points down in the polls (Trump is, of course).multiple Dems have texted, unprompted, on this point in the last few mins. Says one: "You know what suburban women love? A bully who is constantly interrupting." https://t.co/p2rSVa1Sbj— Gabriel Debenedetti (@gdebenedetti) September 30, 2020
Trump is not just being Trump. He is proving to anyone who had a doubt that he lacks self control, knowledge, or insight. And fox viewers get to see this...— (((Howard Forman))) (@thehowie) September 30, 2020

Imagine debating a monkey that just makes noises and throws poop.— George Conway (@gtconway3d) September 30, 2020
The Lovely Wife just made the same point. “He wouldn’t know a suburb unless he took a wrong turn.”.@realDonaldTrump comes off as a man out of control, which is exactly what he's always been. It's a terrible look for a president.— George Conway (@gtconway3d) September 30, 2020
I feel like I'm watching a fight in the principal's office.— The Lincoln Project (@ProjectLincoln) September 30, 2020
I had quit before they started. I just didn’t know it would be this bad. “Do it. Say it.” Trump’s response is to tell Proud Boys to “stand by.”I'm quitting the debates.— Danielle Allen (@dsallentess) September 30, 2020
Did I learn anything? No.
Did I change my mind? No.
Was that a waste of my time? Yes.
Am I voting for Biden? Yes.
Is that news? No.
Am I voting early? Yes.

I'm calling it for Biden. I refuse to believe a majority of voters will sign up for another four years of this. It has nothing to do with politics. This simply can't continue.— Helaine Olen (@helaineolen) September 30, 2020

A Cleveland Clinic doctor with masks just walked up to a number of unmasked members of the audience on Trump’s side of the room and asked them to put on masks. She told me they refused to take one and wear them. https://t.co/rNUFjLfUEf— Tyler Pager (@tylerpager) September 30, 2020
Forest fires! 🔥 Rake the leaves! Rake the leaves!! Yes!!!! The leaves!!!!!! 🍁 And a “Sir” story! DRINK!! 🍹Bottom line is Trump was down seven before this started and turning the show into an unwatchable mess can’t possibly help him — the idea was to expose Biden’s fake dementia, but it’s fake so it didn’t work. https://t.co/tSgb8zV40m— Matthew Yglesias (@mattyglesias) September 30, 2020
A bit out of chronology, but I can’t let that go unrecognized.Every son should hope for a father like @JoeBiden to defend their legacy like the VIce President just defended the late Beau Biden.— Peter Schorsch (@PeterSchorschFL) September 30, 2020
That was an unbelieveable moment. #Debates2020
