Why The First Biden-Trump Debate May Be The Most Important One | The 11th Hour | MSNBC


  1. This isn’t about supporting a political party or even a political candidate. It’s about saving our democracy at the polls: the right to vote and have that vote counted and a peaceful transition of power. Vote as early as possible (vote.org), complete the census and help two people outside your household to do the same. It’s Now or Never – for Everyone. Thank you

    1. “Vote as early as possible”
      Translation: Please vote before the debates where Trump is going to crush Biden.

    2. It is about saving democracy. What we’ve seen is that if a private citizen businessman runs and wins an election, they’ll try to accuse him of being a Russian spy, they’ll try to impeach over nothing, and block everything. And, if you don’t elect who CNN, MSNBC and DC says to elect, they’ll burn your city, courthouses, and maybe even your home. So – you can cave in to career politicians and corrupt media and vote Biden or fight back and elect the private citizen, Donald Trump. If they try to burn your home over it, FIGHT BACK against tyranny!!!

    3. Mr Fugazi , so, forcefully removing someone who was lawfully elected is what you want? Just move to a communist country if you like that, don’t bring it here to the US.

    4. MusicStudent1 Are you stupid? Go back and read his comment. “If the election does not go his way” means that he could lose the election but refuse to leave. What are you talking about “lawfully elected?” The majority leader (a Republican) has already stated that there would be a peaceful transition of power, pretty much rebuking Trump. It is possible that Trump could legitimately lose the election. It is also possible that Biden could lose the election, legitimately, but you know that whichever side loses will probably claim fraud.

    1. Just keep telling Trump he’s lying and watch him walk off the stage like a 3 years old that didn’t get any candy

    2. @Bijan Mehrpour

      When in the past? Obama lost the debate to Romney.

      Trump lost the debate to Hillary, but his supporters loved his assholiness.

      You either watch Fox news or you don’t – that decides who won.

    3. @Thomas Reedy  Did you watch the debates of Hillary and Trump in 2016? When they were asked about how to create new jobs for Americans, Hillary said that she had a two years old granddaughter, ……but Trump said he would stop the jobs going to Mexico. That’s why Trump beated Hillary in 2016 !

  2. I have seen pineapples — both real and art /artificial — in the background of at-home contributors and pundits on various programs, for several months now. What does the pineapple signify?

    1. @Carol It can be incorporated into charms for vigor and courage. It is of added benefit to spiritual power, and can increase personal magical energy as well as strengthen psychic experience and intuition. Pineapples can also increase confidence and the chance of success. … Pineapples are symbolic of hospitality and warmth.Jul 3, 2017

  3. These debates are utterly meaningless, just like in 2016. Trump voters are hardcore. They won’t be turned. Biden needs blacks to turn out like they did for Obama, otherwise this will not be close. My hope is that it is not close either way, as the supporters from both sides are capable of causing a lot of trouble for our country.

  4. Reported last night. Hunter Biden received a 3 million payment from the wife of the former mayor of Moscow LOL . No one seems to know why?

  5. You can be certain, that Wallace , or another of the Left Wing goons, will get the questions to Pervert Joe before the first debate.

  6. 2 things. This clown said the “polls” which were a joke last election & “Bidens been crisp” this last week. So Biden isn’t drooling & actually took his pills this week?

    1. China underwent a revolution under Chairman Mao. Look how successful Communist China is now. This is Inspirational for the leftists.

  7. Im joe….. biden? Cmon man! Move that teleprompter thing closer!
    Ok that’s better
    Im joe….. biden?
    Ahhh anyway, I forgot this message

  8. These debates will never happen. And if they do Biden will get fed the questions before hand like Hillary who still didn’t win.

  9. I am not sure how listening to one more of #TyphoidTrump’s lies and race baiting is important.

    If Biden ended up in a covid-19 respirator unit on election day, I would still vote for him.
