It was a mess, for sure. I thought Biden did better than expected. He let Trump get under skin and began to stumble. But I suspect that was Trumps strategy - be a brash, loud mouth bully on stage and placate the lemming base of his.DuckDuckGriz wrote: ↑Tue Sep 29, 2020 8:48 pmThis was and will continue to be a national scar.
I think this platform may be outdated.
We are a society now conditioned to consume information quickly, not thoroughly.
A 2 minute response forces the same 'greatest hits,' that's all you gotta do. Stick to the hits.
It's speaking in Tweet and looking for a viral moment. That is, if you can get a word in.
I do think Trump set a precedence for this in 2016 and both candidates did again tonight.
But we should re-think this entire format.
And cut the fucking mics.
Wallace did a good job trying to reign in Trump. Anyone would've failed at that job.
And yes to cutting the mics - don't know how many times I made that remark to MrsCCU.
