Yeah but that was different....Right?

BDK, can we get a ruling how this doesn't apply to Trump?
Trump was willing to do 3 in person debates.

I don’t consider one person in one location, and one person in another (coukd be thousands of miles away) streamed over the internet, a real debate.

Well apparently there was a 2nd debate. I wonder why the msm doesn't treat Biden the same way in his "interviews". Hhmmm.

Savannah did a great job. I'm MIGHT have a slight chub after watching her bitch slap Trump. :lol:
Trump handled it well. I personally don't have a problem with her antics and quips, but they should treat Biden no differently.

So you don't consider it makes it not a real debate? Do we not debate ideas on this message board? Your moving the goal posts, champ.

I’ve learned more from numerous CS debates than any Presidential debate I’ve ever watched. Debates are mostly for gullible apolitical dummies or political nerds who enjoy theater.

Yeah banter on a message board where you can take minutes, hrs or even days to respond, can look stuff up, copy/paste, can’t see the other person (nor can anyone else), is the same as a live/in person debate..

Well, if those are your criteria for an acceptable, "real" debate -
time pressure, need to reply quickly: Yep, this is true in a streaming situation.
Can look up stuff: Would be able to prevent this in a streaming situation.
copy/paste: Yep, can't do that
Can't see the person (or anyone else): Streaming avoids this problem

So I guess you agree that streaming this debate with the two parties in separate locations would have qualified the same as a live/in person debate. Glad to see you're coming around :clap:

According to Webster a debate is "a contention by words or arguments."
A debate doesn't have to be a formal setting, loosely moderated by a member of the media where candidates repeat memorized, canned responses in a short time frame. If anything, the debate we are involved here is better. More pure. It lasts longer and has actually educated the opposition.

Want to know something ironic? We're DEBATING what a debate is. :lol:

A debate is a debate regardless of whether it's in person or virtual.

Trump is a pussy regardless of whether he debates or not.

Wrong.

Who cares if a message board is comparable to a presidential debate or not. The differences between an in person debate and a debate with candidates in different locations are minimal. You're lost in the weeds deflecting from the reality that Trump is a pussy running from a situation where he can't try to bully and intimidate rather than actually debating.

I don't consider bullying and intimidation to be important parts of a debate so the differences are minimal.

You’re the one who initially brought up trying to compare debating on a message board to in person debating. Talk about silly (and blowing up the goalposts).

It might also be effective for a debater to use a baseball bat on their opponent but it wouldn't mean that they actually won the debate.

For a supposed tough guy 'Murican patriot, Trump sure is a pussy snowflake when he doesn't get his way.
