Presidential Debate


Rayne Pace, reporter

If I could describe the debate in one word it would be: chaos.  Trump and Biden walked on the stage and from there it all went downhill.  The candidates both stepped onto the stage and greeted each other. The moderator started with his first question to both candidates which is: why are you right in your argument and your opponent is wrong?  In regards to Trump, electing Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. Trump went ahead and answered saying, “We won the election. Elections have consequences. We have the Senate, we have the White House, and we have a phenomenal nominee respected by all.” The moderator let Biden go next and he said, “The American people have a right to have a say in who the Supreme Court nominee is.” At this time, the open discussion starts. Trump and Biden were talking over each other and interrupting the moderator. Biden said, “Will you shut up, man?” while Trump was talking about Biden’s son, making fun of him and called him a loser. In my opinion, the debate was awful and both of the candidates handled it unprofessionally.
