First Presidential Debate Live Blog



10:40 PM It’s over.  Mercifully.  I’m headed to bed. Trump doesn’t want a debate, he just wants to filibuster and boast about his shitty lies.

10:36 PM Trump is already declaring the election fraudulent.

10:31 PM On Voting, Biden: “Vote vote vote”.  Trump: “It’s a fraud.”

10:29 PM I’m exhausted.  That’s the update.

10:21 PM

10:16 PM Trump bringing up Ukraine again and again, which got him impeached, is a bit short sighted.  Of course Biden lets it slide.  My god.

10:11 PM Just saying but we could have had taco trucks on every corner instead of this.

10:03 PM Biden to Trump: “You wouldn’t know a suburb if you took a wrong turn.”

10:00 PM An hour into this. Trump won’t stop interrupting and Joe is leaving a lot on the table. Trump asks Biden if he’s in favor of law and order.  Might have been a good time for Joe to bring up the names of everybody in Trump’s administration who is now in jail or charged.

9:55 PM Chris Wallace appeals to Trump to stfu for 2 minutes.  Trump lasts 30 seconds before he has to interject.

9:52 PM This debate is such a mess.

9:50 PM Chris Wallace is just going to let Trump steamroll through again and again.

9:44 PM I’m fairly underwhelmed with Biden hitting back. Trump is giving him a lot of openings to hit on (Nobody got sick from a Trump rally?  SHOUT OUT HERMAN CAIN)

9:35 PM I’m not sure how effective it is for Biden to provide Trump a laugh track. I dunno.

9:23 PM

9:22 PM Chris Wallace to Biden: “the question goes to you, 2 minutes, uninterrupted.”  Biden: “Good luck.:

9:18 PM It’s going to be a long night.  Switching to whiskey.

9:17 PM Trump got 15 minutes in before using a racial slur.

9:14 PM Trump thinks he is debating Chris Wallace now.

9:12 PM Trump is the personification of a stuck CAPS LOCK KEY.

9:06 PM I see Trump with the extra Oompa face dye tonight.

9:00 PM And we’re starting. The audience is spaced out but still look pretty close for my comfort.

8:53 PM Does Trump snort Adderall in powder form or just stick the entire capsule up his nose?

8:32 PM Why is Rick Santorum still getting paid tv gigs?

8:11 PM My debate watching partner has passed out from anxiety:

7:57 PM CNN has dug up 14 undecided voters who are either lying to get onto CNN’s focus group or.  No, that’s the only feasible reason at this point.

7:41 PM Biden has released his tax returns a few hours ago. He actually paid taxes on his income and probably doesn’t even have a golden toilet.  Sucker.

7:37 PM The Trump campaign just did an email blast declaring that Trump won the debate, a good 1.5 hours before the debate actually has begun.

7:30 PM Oh, it starts at 9. I’m so not ready for this.

7:25 PM Ok, I’m watching it on ABC News (I think. I suck at finding any specific channel nowadays) but if you can only watch from the web, here’s the YouTube Embed. I’ll be posting updates on here so you may need to refresh every so often. I have some leftover Shakshuka, a big box of wine (because I’m classy) and a pissed off cat. I’m ready for this.
