Political commentators and journalists are still dissecting that chaotic and blood-turning presidential debate between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden.
Tuesday night, Trump and Biden clashed in the first debate that took place in Cleveland, Ohio. It was pure Cacophony — as Trump repeatedly interrupted Biden, insulted his family, and spit out a list of lies.
Despite the pressure, Biden shined several times while talking about the coronavirus pandemic that has taken the lives of over 205,000 people in America, the economic crisis that has left millions unemployed, and the racial unrest after the police killed several African Americans.
At times, Biden grew frustrated and told POTUS to shut up, stop yapping, and called him a clown and a liar. Carlson said he made a huge mistake to underestimate Biden’s mental capacity and stamina to debate Trump.
The conservative talk show host, who is a close ally of Trump, said he was wrong to call Biden senile. He pleaded with Trump to move away from the name-calling and ranting.
Carlson shared: “As a political matter, the main thing we learned last night is that it was a mistake to spend so much time focusing on Joe Biden’s mental decline. Yes, it’s real. Yes, Joe Biden is fading; we’ve shown you dozens of examples of it for months now. But on stage last night, Biden did not seem senile. If you tuned in expecting him to forget his name — and honestly, we did expect that — you may have been surprised by how precise some of his answers were — not all of them, but enough of them. Trump isn’t going to win this race by calling Joe Biden senile, nor by the way is Joe Biden going to win by calling Donald Trump a racist, as he repeatedly did last night. That slander didn’t work four years ago; it will not work now.”
Carlson also had this say about Biden’s debate performance: “Amazingly, tragically, many people who watched last night may have concluded that Joe Biden is the stable, steady alternative. They concluded this even as Joe Biden suggested he plans to change their lives, their country, permanently and forever in ways they won’t like. It’s quite a trick, the illusion of reasonableness. Barack Obama was a master of this.”
Scientific polls taken after the debate have shown that many viewers rated Biden as the winner and data gurus predict the Democratic nominee could get a small bump in future surveys.
