Maddow: Biden Doesn't Need The Next Debate. Should He Even Bother? | Rachel Maddow | MSNBC 1


Rachel Maddow points out that with a lead in the polls, a large number of Americans having already voted, and a disingenuous opponent in Donald Trump, Joe Biden could reasonably decide not to bother with a third presidential debate. Aired on 10/19/2020.

    Trump can’t interrupt Biden while he speaks? Well, there goes his entire strategy out the window. 😂😂😂😆😆😆😅😅😋

  2. Rachel is better looking when she is crying.

  3. tRump: says Biden is cognitively impaired.

    Also tRump: “doesn’t know” if he had a giant q-tip scrape inside his nose before the first debate.

    Let that sink in. 😂


  5. Beware of the “Red Mirage” it will be the tactic used to steal the election.

    • I think you mean landslide. And it will be plenty real when it hits.

    • @supercriceto The red mirage would occur due to in person vote counts, as more gop plan to vote in person. Many states with early voting refuse to count the ballots until the polls close, adding to the mirage. The blue shift (tsunami) comes in slowly as the vote that have already been cast today plus all the other absentee and mail in ballots are counted.

    • @Lars Jones Beep Beep Beep… Oh look, another semi backing in with blank envelope ballots. Hmmm. .. third one today.

    I want to watch Trump go in-f***ing-sane when his mic gets turned off.

    Trump has nothing more to add other than proving that he’s getting more unhinged daily.

  9. America is the world’s covid epicentre and it’s economy amongst the hardest hit. The rampant infection, economic devastation and complete lack of planning are inexcusable. Trump’s lies and incompetence have cost America dearly!
    Vote this disaster out …and the spineless cowards who enable him!

    • Biden and Trump are brothers. They are both the same. Under Obama/Biden, 80 million were infected with swine flu. I didn’t hear a peep about it. Trump just did what Biden did and what every other President does. Bush got us into two wars and then Obama added six more. They don’t care about you! They serve the wealthy oligarchs. Trump is just a symptom of the problem.

    • You are 100% wrong. Literally. You win today’s Delusional Dem award. Congratulations and commiserations-in-advance when Orange Man Bad gets four more years!

    • Mean like shutting down travel from China when Nancy Pelosi was dancing around in Chinatown?

    • Did you know the 250,000 people died from the swine flu before the news even said one thing about it?

    • No they have the smash shut down because the Democrats are trying to overthrow this president or talk about another impeachment when Russia tell Sierra was bought and paid for by Hillary you do know this right this is fact not fiction

    I hope he loses it when his mike is turned off!!!! That would be a sight to watch!!!! I hope that this moderator is able to maintain control of this debate, and Trump. She should not let him get away with interruptions and talking over Biden. Just stop him on his tracks!

  11. Don’t just assume Trumps beaten and not bother to vote! VOTE AND ENSURE IT!

  12. Dont get comfy yet get people out to vote!

  13. The babychildman cant and will not play by the rules everybody else needs to play by… 👶💩☠

  14. Dun trust poll.. They are misleading… Go out n vote

    • @Carrie Fox “fake president” that’s not delusional or anything! 😄

    • d. J

    • Vote Trump

    • If I could vote again I would, but I just dropped off my Trump & GOP eviction notice this weekend. I am a Republican and a vet and a NYC kid and I am definitely putting Country Over Party to avoid FOUR MORE YEARS of Daily Trump Chaos, Carnage, Grifting and oh so many lies that lower our collective IQ. Trump can go be the leader of the LowIQanon Party. The GOP Trump Eunuchs must be booted out and the party rebuilt minus the shitheel Charlatans.

      @EJ McG Nice try kid , lol…TRUMP 2020!!!

  15. Don’t let the polls lull you into a false sense of security…still need to vote.

    As far as having another debate, to borrow CNNs Dana Bash’s analysis on the 1st debate….prep for another “shitshow.”

    And also, a plexiglass divider should also be present here (as was in the vp debate). Mostly since one, that’s going to be on stage, has tested positive for Corona and never really quarantined as guidelines recommend, after the fact.

  16. The more Trump speaks to undecided voters, the worse for him. He’s too deep in the right-wing media bubble. So let him speak!

  17. He is nothing more than a WWE character, playing WWE story lines. Works on the same crowd too.

      ChinaBidens corruption is catching up to him……..BurismaBiden!💩👎🇨🇳

      @Denise Hall lets see here….ChinaBiden is suspected pedaphile! Flag burning cop killing, rioting , police defunding,corrupt Burisma scamming dumbocrat and your voting for him? I hope your grandchildren thank you for voting their freedom away one day! They will punch you right in the face! You deserve it for allowing yourself to get brainwashed!

    • @supercriceto we are stupid because we think for ourselves. Which is actually funny. Dems accuse republicans of everything they actually do. Foriegn election interference, russian collusion, corruption. Would it be fair to say that applies to them calling us stupid?

    • I understand you hate Trump but I also encourage you to see the reality in its two sides. Liberal left wing media does not have a full real truths about what’s happening around you. Most of the time they twist and manipulate the truth just giving you a partial truth. It’s like ice cream on top but rotten egg at bottom. Be critical in your judgement because it’s not only American life is at stake but the whole world.

  18. I say keep fighting until you’ve secured the prize. Please vote.
