    Trump admits he's lost if he leaves or flakes out. The only realistic reason he'd do that, is if he believes the beating he takes will be worse than merely losing. I think he's more likely to just ignore time limits and whose turn it is and just start shouting over everything Biden says, like a fucking toddler, daring Wallace to put him in his place, before he actually concedes and walks out.

    But boy is it a close call.
    Not only that, if Biden gets Trump to storm off, not only does Biden make him look weak, but Biden then gets the stage to himself on top of it.
    Since we can't call out Trolls and Bad Faith posters and the Ignore function doesn't actually ignore it. Add
    "mmo-champion.com##li.postbitignored"
    to your ublock or adblock filter to actually ignore ignored posters. Now just need a way to ignore responses to them as well.

    Trump has been trying to undermine our elections all year long, making false claims of "rigging" by democrats through mail in ballots, spreading fake news and doctored stories from James O'Keefe. Trump scapegoats American problems on minorities and opposition groups. Trump has terrible human rights policies including stripping children away from their parents and keeping them in camps at the border. Trump spreads propaganda to convince Americans of his lies, while calling the media "lugenpresse" (german for "lying press" which is another way to say, "fake news.") Trump is a nationalist (or at least acts like one) to an extreme, hugging flags and claiming to be the sole person who can save America. He constantly uses evangelical fervor to garner support and cozies up with dictators.

    He's literally playing by the fascist playbook

    He fits all 14 points.

    This is why I previously said (or at least should have) that leaving mid-debate is the dumbest thing Trump can do. I suggested the Committee let Biden have the stage solo if Trump cancels before, but I don't know if they would. If Trump leaves, they have no choice -- the time slot is filled and the cameras are rolling.

    Oh, by the way, Trump claims the Green New Deal basically removes cows. It does not -- the words "cow" and "cattle" make no appearance at all. Trump either didn't read it, or did and had a senior moment. Neither trait is redeeming. We Rate This Claim False.

    Your history of posting shows you have germophobia and a desire for cleanliness . . . yet wearing a mask is too much to ask for? During a pandemic?

    Thanks for providing a list of good reasons.
    There is plenty of science that says the masks are useless too but youll just claim they are from right wing lying doctors without even reading the studies. Additionally they cause many people to have headaches and hypoxia and for people like me who have asthma and COPD it makes it very hard to breathe while wearing one.

    This just in: the trade gap has widened. It was $83 billion last month -- a new record.

    Trump's policies have failed. The trade gap is wider than ever before, and still widening.

    Um...there's new evidence and I'm less sure.

    Trump wants Biden frisked for radios.

    Yep, under 24 hours in and he's trying to add another rule, creating a conspiracy theory out of nowhere, possibly to come up with a reason he'll flake out.

    Also,

    I think my favorite part of that link was this paragraph...

    "Biden has released 22 years of tax returns, and Harris has released 15 years, according to the campaign. Mr. Trump has not released any of HER tax returns to the public, citing a years-long IRS audit. Individuals under audit are not prohibited from releasing their tax returns."

    I laughed far harder and longer than I should have at that slip up.

    The U.S. State Department said Tuesday it was outraged by a rocket attack a day earlier that killed Iraqi civilians and called on the government to take action amid an impending diplomatic crisis between Baghdad and Washington.

    The attack and subsequent condemnation come after the U.S. threatened to close its embassy in Baghdad unless Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi's administration reigns in Iran-backed armed groups responsible for frequent rocket fire and roadside bomb attacks targeting the American presence in the country.

    “We are outraged by yesterday’s rocket attack in Baghdad that killed civilians, including a mother and her children,” State Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus said in a statement.

    In response to the embassy closure threats, the prime minister's spokesman said in his weekly news conference Tuesday that the closure of any diplomatic mission would have detrimental consequences for regional security.

    “The withdrawal or closure of any diplomatic mission of any country will have disastrous repercussions for the entire region,” said Ahmed Mulla Talal.

    He said the al-Kadhimi administration rejected any attempts to turn Iraq into an arena of conflict between the U.S. and Iran.

    The attacks have not let up, despite the U.S. threats.
    The State Department does not get to be "outraged" while they're packing their bags and leaving. If the State Dept was "outraged" they could do something about it, such as with the miltary forces already on scene.

    Everyone needs to stay on topic. This thread is to relate to Trump, not a dumping ground every politicized recent event.

    Speaking of which, will there be a megathread about the debates? Or it will be posted on the election thread?

    Mod Edit: Likely it'll just stay in the election thread, since it'll inevitably be discussed there.

    Even more fun is that he has admitted to be so sensitive to light that he has to wear welding goggles if he walks outside.

    No one said you have to. The issue is you can't because you're morally and intellectually bankrupt with an aversion to truth. If critical thinking were needed to sustain life you'd have died years ago.

    The more telling part is why you trump cultists fail to meet basic information requests or address blatant hypocrisy in your own views when asked to in a discussion forum.

    How do you feel that Trump paid Jared kushner consulting fees specifically to dodge taxes or how basically every business and property he has are money sucking black holes and his only probiftable venture in the last 40 years, after wasting millions of his daddy's money, was convincing people like you he was great at business via his TV show while he was sucking at running his actual business ventures?

    What is your opinion on a president who has hundreds of millions of dollars owed to foreign lenders with payment due suring his possible second term?
