Democrats will address availability of guns and the lack of attention placed on mental health issues. Republicans will address neither. And, hopefully children will be raised in the gleaming example of personal responsibility and civility that is Donald Trump, right?

Also, a system that creates dozens to hundreds of mass shootings each year is not “fine”.

Merely as a point of clarification the FBI defines a "Mass shooting" of 4 or more who've been wounded....

And I believe the "System" has created nothing. Poor parenting and the inability to recognize mental health issues in minors is what needs to be addressed...

Trump is THE p*ssy grabber. He brags about sexual assault. Everything else you accuse Biden of applies to Trump except the gun issue. The Republicans have the gun fans hook, line, and sinker. Millions are in their pocket over one issue.

I have equal disdain for Republicans and Democrats. Personally, I feel that it's time to just get rid of this archaic two party system. This can only happen if the press begins to give some column space to independents - which ain't never gonna happen.

I say that so that I can say this: Trump's moniker of "Pu$$y Grabber" came about via an "off the record" comment that he made to a slimy, sleazy excuse for a journalist. He actually said (words to the effect) that a celebrity could walk up and grab a woman by her privates and get away with it. He did not say that he had done such a thing personally (he might very well have - I'd never know).

Okay, not too long after this, there were several instances of women coming forward with stories about their having been sexually assaulted by important male figures. In some cases, years had passed. When I wondered out-loud why gymnasts from the U.S. Olympic team came forward after years of being silent - I was told that I shouldn't judge them. I was told that ANY woman that made such allegations DESERVED and MUST BE listened to and taken seriously. I apologized profusely for my chauvinistic attitudes and ways - and promised to atone.

Then, a woman steps up and calls out Joe Biden - who (according to her) went a lot further than just talking about pu$$y grabbing. This woman has produced (what this former chauvinist would accept as) viable proof of her story. She has a Larry King Live clip of a woman who seems very likely to be her mother stating the case to the show host. She also produced at least 4 other witnesses who remember her telling her story at the time.

Why wasn't this woman afforded the same, across the board trust and belief that we are supposed to give to ALL WOMEN who make these claims? The deafening silence was drowned out only by the opinions of those who really want to see Joe Biden slide though this unscathed.

$hit sandwich - diarrhea milkshake - Kanye West.

If I vote my heart, my conscience and my desire - I will write in a candidate name. There is no way in Hell I'll ever vote for Trump for anything! A vote from me for Biden should never be confused with trust, admiration, or confidence in him. This will strictly be nothing more than another choice between two evils. A Biden victory will represent little more than crawling out of the fire and back into the frying pan.

If I had the money and the science was solid enough - I'd opt to be cryogenically frozen for the next 4 years.

Peace and love, y'all.

I hope there aren't any. They're a waste of time & provide no new information for voters. I think the acceptance speeches - if they are anything more than puffery - give the nominees the best opportunity for them to articulate why they should be president & what, if any, plans they have.

Thought Kanye was a big Trump guy...it makes you wonder after 3+ years if people haven't left Trump's side by now, what would make them do it all of a sudden? It's just one big continuation of Trumpness with varied degrees of idiocy and recklessness, who decides now "ok, now that is enough, I've had it". Guess there is no trying to understand Kanye, so why try.


Which of the Kardashians will take Ivanka's place as senior advisor to the prez? Prez Kanye has a nice ring to it.


I think Kanye - always ready for an opportunity - thought a black guy running in the midst of the worst racial unrest since the 1960s might be a good idea for about 5 minutes. Doesn't mean he's dumping Trump.

Kanye would have so many choices for advisers starting w/his sister-in-law model/influencer Kylie Jenner the youngest self-made billionaire ever to make the Forbes list going all to way to his step-mother-in-law trans Caitlin Jenner. Maybe 2024.

Goya makes Latino food products like canned beans, tortillas, spices, etc. Their CEO is pro-Trump and the MAGA crowd is doing a reverse boycott and buying foods they never heard of.

A former band-mate of mine is a MAGA "Democrats hate America" dude and he's been posting how much he loves beans this week. Goya has always been on the supermarket shelves where I've lived, but it's kind of entertaining watching the MAGA crowd discover exotic canned Frijoles like it's dragon fruit or something.

Stay tuned - next thing Russian Don will tell us is that Goya products can make Covid disappear. Guess the Frijoles will replace Lysol as a miracle cure.

Literally, your defense of Joe Biden is the criticism of President Trump?

The ultimate in "Neener, neener"......Joe Biden's task is to prove he can do the job BETTER and your vote says you believe he can. Try defending your candidate for once instead of finding fault in the other.

I challenge you to do that based on what Joe attempts to bring to the table in his current mental state.

I'll wager you stay on your current tack...Your defense of Joe is based solely on your perception of the standing President's weaknesses.

He would do just fine in a debate.

No, it is literally not my defense of Biden. I am pointing out that his detractors are using arguments that apply more to Trump’s deficiencies than his.

Biden understands American civics. He has authored legislation. Trump’s attempts at policy get shot down by conservative justices for being incomplete or incompetent.

Biden has been a successful senator and Vice President over the course of decades. Trump is a failed casino operator and a failed President.

For one, I don’t know of Biden saying that a virus that has killed over 130,000 Americans will go away like a miracle.

Biden also realizes that the international relationships that have kept the USA in the position it has been in for the past 70 years are not a ripoff.

I don’t run the Democratic primary, and Biden was not my first choice, but we are at a place where not being Trump is the only real choice.

Joe Biden knows how to do the job, Trump never even bothered learning.

People are free to hate Biden and Obama as much as they want, but defending Trump as the appropriate correction is beyond reckless and requires a cognitive dissonance that is beyond imagination.

I do not "hate" Joe Biden. I do however feel that if he is the best the Democratic leadership can present, well, say no more. I do not Hate President Obama either, quite the contrary, I have nothing but respect for this gentleman, dignified speaker and leader. Joe Biden is not even remotely close to being anywhere near the same type of man President Obama is.....

If Trent Lott (a conservative with comparable experience to Biden) had won the Democratic primary this year, I would support him against Trump. He would at least know how to do the job.

Hell, I am almost to the point where I would support Mike Pence over Trump, at least he knows how the American government works.

By the way, I live in Indiana and hate Mike Pence and everything he believes in and stands for.

Pence's best skill is thanking Trump for "your great leadership" at just about every moment Pence is at the podium. I doubt we'd find many detractors from agreeing with Pence? The 33% percent who agree with Trump's handling of Covid would certainly agree.

Congrats on listening to a speech. I rarely do, but I've seen enough of Biden to know he is smart, experienced, well-versed in how government works, can think & speak strategically & understands the importance of allies and coalitions of nations.

What isn't often said about Biden (perhaps because it's more fun to ridicule) is that the man has had a stutter since childhood. He rarely talks about it, but in an explanation he said he's had years of training and has learned - particularly when making a speech - to have mid-sentence breaks in order to speak an entire phrase. He's well aware that makes him look like he's searching for a word, but he's really only pausing long enough to speak the next short phrase.

Led by non-scientific, non-empathetic Trump, opposition supporters are spreading the misinformation that Biden's intellect is failing. Wrong. Look at Biden's speeches from when he was 30 years younger & you'll see the same pattern - speaking to prevent stuttering that has nothing to do w/mental capacity.

It's a mistake for Biden, the Democrats, & the media to let these accusations go unanswered. When a TV guest starts to speak/laugh about Biden's cognitive decline, the interviewer should raise the issue of his pattern of speaking w/o stuttering that's lasted a lifetime. The man isn't cognitively impaired; he speaks to avoid his stutter.

Biden would NOT fare well in debates. He's thoughtful, deliberate, & polite. Trump is a bombastic braggart who enjoys being cruel. He's incapable of a debate that would enlighten any voters.

You're actually putting the cart before the horse, you must have a short memory. Criticisms of Trump's opponents have been Trump's own well-documented weaknesses flipped - crooked, creepy, poor orator, etc. These all apply to Trump ten fold, but you and your MAGA crowd flip them as a defense. Trump's bat-sht crazy speeches have been cannon fodder for years.

The whole discussion of Biden's supposed disadvantage in a debate is plain dumb. The premise of which is that because Trump is more willing to be shameless TV smart-ass in a venue where you only have to stay on topic for 90 seconds at a time, Trump will "wipe the floor" with Biden. Is this really an indicator of who should be making decisions that have true bearing on the lives of millions of people?

"He got my vote as soon as he said Carly Fiorina was ugly and told Marco Rubio about his wang." - Brilliant!

100%. Debates are relics. They don't belong in a 24/7 media environment when there's nothing we don't know about the candidates. The question is how to get rid of them.
