Right, but it’s never going to happen because Biden won’t do it. And Trump will hold that over his head and lots of young voters will stay home.

And it’s 100% because Biden is a literal puppet and needs to script his answers beforehand, which should tell everyone what they need to know about his ability to be a leader and think critically without needing those around him to nudge him in the right direction.

Which - from the words “which” to “direction” above - is the same issue people have with Trump.

Which is why this election sucks.

If we ever relax the suppression levels back to "mitigation" policies, we go right back to 2 million people dead within three months.

This continues until there is a disseminated vaccine, currently 18 months from now.

They are all puppets in reality. But you need someone to play the game a bit. Trump won't and we see how that is playing out. Politicians are politicians for a reason, you need to build stronger relations on the foreign policy front and domestic and so I think there is an important difference between the 2 choices we have. One has been in the game long enough to understand how to play, one hasn't and is way in over his head.

Trump isn't just "in way over his head". He literally gives zero fucks about anybody but himself. His ignorance is simply part of his pathological nature.

Biden is a typical career politician, except he's more Republican than he will admit.

Both are hideous choices, but Biden is the much lesser evil.

I would have been fine with either Obama or McCain, though I preferred Obama.

I agree, and I actually really aligned with some of McCain's ideas/thoughts until Palin was put on the ticket. It was really only one choice for me at that point.

I voted for Obama twice, and wish I could vote for either Obama now. A vote for Biden is really a vote for Harris, which is fine, but I just wish she was in the 1 chair so we could see how she reacts in the debates (although they both called it the Harris / Biden ticket yesterday). I think Biden is legitimately being pushed into this by his wife and circle. He should be in a rocking chair somewhere. It’s almost cruel at this point.

I have always been so fascinated by McCain’s time as a POW. So crazy what he went through knowing that he could have gone home multiple times because of his father and chose not to.

One of the man reasons why I can't do another 4 years with Trump is the way he absolutely disrespected McCain in every way possible and I loved that John put Trump on the do not attend list for his funeral.

So, Joe Rogan made a mistake on his podcast, something he's probably done uncountable times, and this time he gets enough pressure to apologize.

Seems pretty fucking innocuous when there are literal fires everywhere right now. Can’t believe people hammered him for that.

That episode was so good. I listened to it this morning and it was incredible.

She should have retired during Obama’s second term.
