  1. “And you have 500 kids who don’t know in gods name where they’re gonna be and lost their parents.” Trump: “good”.. GOOD?! 🤬

    • @Her Story He is a seasoned politician; one of the very best. He’s been stringing the Black community along for 47 years and has done nothing to further their quality of life but they just keep voting for him. In less that 3 years, Trump gave them jobs, dignity, and purpose — for all Americans, it just happened to benefit the Black community the most. He’s got that “look into the camera and get the People to believe you” thing down. It appeals to Seniors especially. He did have notes and while he did not look down to read when speaking, I think the responses were there for review while Trump was talking. Trump actually gave numbers and statistics for once instead of “millions and millions” which many people cannot relate to. Great debate! Stay safe!

    • 545 children. So sad… one would of ever got away with such a inhumane act, only Trump because of all of the enablers her appointed. They should all be prosecuted to the fullest for this. Sickening, and he stood there when Joe spoke about it all puffed up with arrogance, made excuses….well taken care of. My Lord, the trama to these children’s hearts and minds will be with them all of their lives. You could not see one ounce of empathy in trumps face, only defiance. Our country needs a leader who has a human heart. BIDEN

      @Debi Allen
      Joe Biden is a frail, lying, heartless, cruel Politician who is only out for himself and his dysfunctional family.
      Cages were built by Obama/Biden.
      You’re being bamboozled by the fake media.
      President Trump has only been the president for 4 years, Biden has been in politics for 47 years.

    • @Debi Allen What he and his children do is okay. I mean he accused Joe Biden’s son of trading off of his father’s name but isn’t that what his children are doing. His unqualified daughter has a job in the White House because of Daddy. If it was anyone else people would be in the street screaming holly murder.

    • @Debi Allen Yes, let’s forget the fact that these children are here illegally. As are their parents. Illegally. Not their fault. Not our fault. Actions have consequences and you jeopardize your own children when you come here illegally. THAT is on YOU. Debi is the kind of person who will keep dragging people into the life boat until it sinks and EVERYBODY dies. Pathetic. Because Liberals have no self-control or appreciation for rules, because rules often don’t allow them to feel good about something. They are so fragile. And any rule that doesn’t let them feel good should be ignored or abolished. But she’ll feel good all the way to the ocean bottom, even as she watches ALL the children die.

  2. The moderator was excellent 👌👌👍

  3. Moderator was good but Trump was forced to behave due to the mute button.

      @Royaltiez Finest How much evidence did they find with collusion! Oh yeah none. The democrats colluded with Russia but you can’t admit it because it’s “fake.” Does Obamagate mean anything to you?

      @Royaltiez Finest A businessman doing business with China. Sounds really suspicious.😂

    • Stephen Vierling | October 23, 2020 at 11:00 AM | Reply

      @Royaltiez Finest What have I said this far that isn’t factual? All you’ve done is lie which I see you learned well from Joe. I appreciate you not responding to literally not a single thing I have said this far because you can’t prove me wrong because it’s true. You’re pathetic and so is the Democratic Party.

    • Stephen Vierling | October 23, 2020 at 11:01 AM | Reply

      @Royaltiez Finest Cat got your tongue? I guess those articles I linked are “fake” right?😂

    • What a stupid comment. His company had a foreign bank account to collect money locally

  6. Kristen Welker performed better than Chris Wallace but I still found myself clicking the MUTE BUTTON too often.

    • @Anne Rodgers
      And I channel surf get tired of yelling

    • Petra Esquivel | October 23, 2020 at 3:11 AM | Reply

      @birdlynn hubbard hundreds of thousands of us we’re yelling at Kristen to turn off the Mic on the orange man when he wouldn’t shut up. I wish she could of heard us. 😆

      The only reason Kristen Welker seems to be the best of the three moderators is because Trump was way toned down. She STILL LACKED CONTROL because she must’ve said a thousand times, “Mr. President, let me ask…” over and over and over. She allowed Trump to trumple all over her, resulting in him getting more speaking time than Biden. Doesn’t matter if you’re a Trumple or a Bidenaire, both candidates deserved equal speaking time, give or take a few percents. Kristin Welker was not able to exude authority. Instead of repeatedly saying, “Let me…Let me…Let me…” she should’ve just effing asked the next question in a loud, authoritative voice. If Trump continued to speak on the prior question, then the plan would be to AGAIN REPEAT THE NEXT QUESTION instead of all this “Let me…Let me…Let me…”

      Lucky I watched the replay so I fast forwarded trumps BS cannot stand his little mouth moving!👎I think the moderator should have had her thumb on the mute Button ! More often! And I believe the Australian journalist do a better job than the American ones! trump wouldn’t have stood a chance of bullying or not answering their questions ! They are the best at asking tougher questions and getting an answer too!

    • @Eagle Mentally prepare yourself for November 4th. Be sure to have your psychiatric medications in order. I have never met a liberal that has not been prescribed psychiatric medications… Liberalism truly is a mental disorder LOL

  7. An impossible job done well!

  8. Welker: “Mr president, what do you have to say to families who live near industrial plants and worry about their health?”
    t’rump: “I haven’t seen any data but those people are making tons of money!”
    America: “Whaaa? 🤔😅😂”

  9. Kristen Welker had her disapproving mom face on. She really was the best thing of the night

  10. Welker owned it. Just kept moving forward without letting anything get in the way.

    She did better than Chris, but she should have muted a few times.

    • @Baby drumphf Biden.

    • @miss kitty that’s true she gave Trump so much time,Biden was helping her not to stick in stupid arguments.Many times Trump wanted argument on matters which are not useful to Americans.Couple of times Biden was asked do you want to reply? he said no.Joe Biden was excellent and he is truly a President material.BIDEN & HARRIS 2020.

    • @Baby drumphf i tell you,people around the world was watching it.Its very clear Biden won it.Trump was answering Questions about his policy and plans like a kid….no details at all.He keeps saying we are doing wonderful job,i have nice people around me and we have great economy.Give full details as the head of state.AMRICANS VOTE THIS JOKER OUT.

    • Welker was not controlling the mute button. That was the bipartisan debate commission’s task.

    • She wasn’t doing the actual muting

  12. She was great. But, only Joe spoke about policies.
    The other guy doesn’t have any.

    • deborah lariscy | October 23, 2020 at 12:47 AM | Reply

      trump is STILL going to roll out that great, affordable Health Care Plan. I wish Joe had talked on that and how trump is still promising a lot of things he campaigned on in 2016. I cannot fathom how this man is still in office.

    • Barbara Roberts | October 23, 2020 at 1:11 AM | Reply

      All “the other guy” did was blatantly lie on just about every subject. Especially on Covid and the “Hunter Biden” BS…trump never smiles does he? He always has that SMUG cocky “mean” 🤢😬look on his face. I won’t miss any of trump’s behavior, instead I will celebrate all of us NOT HAVING TO WORRY every day “what will he say or do today’? Just imagine like Biden said “I won’t be doing any of that silly petty tweet stuff”, “I will be normal”!! We can breath a sigh of relief the day we know trump will be gone. We will celebrate and yell out our windows “Thank God free at last, free at last”!!😊

    • Petra Esquivel | October 23, 2020 at 3:22 AM | Reply

      @Barbara Roberts hallelujah yes yes yessssss we will celebrate for at least four years. Amen

  13. Ms Welker was professional, assertive, straight-forward and steady. Very effective moderator. Although a debate with Trump means being more of a referee or bouncer than a moderator!🤪💪🌊

  14. “trump: I’m lying like no one ever lied before.except pinocchio. Maybeee

  15. Laura Iushewitz | October 23, 2020 at 12:55 AM | Reply

    We will say she was good but Trump will say she was out to get him and didn’t let him correct himself 😂😂😂 She was Great👏👏👏

      Did you watch it ? During the debate he paused and told her she was being fair to hime or he thought she was doing a good job something along those lines

  16. According to Trump, the half Native-American/half black moderator Kristen Welker is more racist than him.

  17. Trump’s answers had no Insight as to how hes going to improve america. Then impersonates Biden when he explains what his plans are for the future

  18. The mute button needs to be ‘a thing’ moving forward. Granted, not all politicians will need to be babysat like Trump, but it’s an effective tool that is there if you need it.

    • For once as a Republican I agree Kristen did a great job driving the bus , I believe Biden did better the first twenty minutes then his lying about the Affordable care act and his lying numbers he was giving caught up with him , then he lied again about Carona . Then Trump lied about his taxes but told the truth on Bidens corruption. Trump clearly won

    • @chauncey the gardener na he just stopped campaigning for a week to practice & memorize everything- fact people that don’t pay bills & don’t work love him

    • @Gone Right no clearly Biden won almost all the questions trump didn’t even ask he kept interrupting like the baby he is constant lies and lies about COVID-19 saying it will be gone then now there then now there and you talk about corruption? Are you kidding me were talking about the same guy right because trump is hella corrupt.

    • Mute buttons must be combined with bibs.

    • chauncey the gardener | October 23, 2020 at 4:37 PM | Reply

      @Gone Right that’s right, just look at Walmart for instance all the Biden supporters are walking around in their pajamas with different color hair smelling like they haven’t showered in weeks can you smell the stench from the Democrat campaign?

  19. What debate? Trump just kept deflecting never said anything about what he plans to do. His thing was just spewing lies and insults.

  20. Trump ordered her around. Sorry, but she failed to control Trump.
