Absolutely. Not to mention a vaccine could emerge in the US from an IMMIGRANT doctor. Even one from MEXICO!

I thought my ability to loathe Trump had reached full capacity. His behavior during this pandemic just increased the capacity. I guess there's really no limit.

This is seriously like Global Warming.

You have one group of sane, fact-following people and another group of sheer idiots that do everything in their power to make it worse.

This is a pretty big deal. Maybe Joe was lurking on here and saw Jerry's post about not voting for him...

He's usually at Corona A Lago every weekend, playing golf while there's a pandemic and the economy is in the toilet.

CNN keeps running the scroll showing Trump saying relax we're doing great it all will pass and Dr. Fauci saying the worst is, yes, ahead for us.

If Trump tries to get rid of Dr. Fauci my corona and Trump related stress is really going to go off the deep end.

Just think of how different things could be right now under President Hillary Clinton.

We could've had the person with actual extensive knowledge and experience, who would've staffed her administration with equally intelligent, experienced people, who was organized and would've been on top of this stuff early on, who wouldn't sit here and pick fights with the press or fire those who weren't showing her cult-like devotion, who would've been in proper communication with other countries and wouldn't have taken golf outings at a Florida resort as this crisis unfolded.

But nope. Better we stuck ourselves with the failed businessman/con man turned reality TV star instead. Because her e-mails, you know.

Also, I really think, if we're fortunate enough to have every last member of the GOP that's up for election voted out of office this year, they should all be barred from being allowed to participate in anything politics-related ever again. And we need to extend that to include any of Trump's family as well. I don't want to see any of them donating to or endorsing or campaigning for anyone. And if we can find a way to punish any members of this administration who dropped the ball so spectacularly-hefty fines or jail time or things of that sort-please, let's do it. Let them have to face actual serious consequences for their hideous lack of response to this.

This needs to be repeated 100x.

Trump is old, decrepit, obese and will be gone soon enough, one way or another.

But the people who enabled him should be run out of town, and shamed until their last day on earth.

We need to start over and have candidates who are not senile and/or suffering from dementia.

I'm sorry but this is well beyond the point of acceptability.

I think they’re both looking pretty sharp tonight. I’m 39 and stumble over words every once in a while. Doesn’t mean I’m senile.

this debate is much better now that they've gotten rid of the maury audience gasping and screaming every 15 seconds.

That's a great retort by Sanders on the previous vote record.

Hard for Bernie to call out Biden for changing his stance when he has the gun issue hanging out there.

This bankruptcy bill part is exactly showcasing why Biden is the better choice than Sanders. Sanders has been an "Independent" his DC career, and has always voted with absolutism. He voted against a bill that had parts of it that helped people making less than 50k, and children, just because he didn't like the rest of it. Biden put in amendments to improve the bill knowing it was going to pass anyway.
Now he's adopting Warren's plan to improve it, now that we will hopefully have a Dem house and possibly Senate.
This is how change happens. Over years and pushing for changes when you can even when you're in the minority. Not voting against anything that isn't perfect. It's the fundamental reason I've always had trouble lining up with Sanders.

It's going to be crazy interesting to see what happens to turnout on Tuesday. You would think that it would be a benefit for Sanders, even though the states favor Biden.

I thought it was kind of funny. When Biden said he would pick a female Vice President, and Bernie said that he was moving in that direction. I thought, well, Sanders has made good inroads with Latino voters, so maybe he has Castro in mind.
But then I thought, having Sanders/Castro signs and bumper stickers may just be too much of a gift for Trump.
