The debate is like watching Jerry Springer. What an embarrassment. Not a real debate.

2. What did you think would happen?

Dump can not actually debate. All he can do is scream and misbehave. That's prime Jerry Springer material.

5. Guess I had hoped that a seasoned moderator would have rules that had consequences if not adhered to

7. You'd wish. I don't think anyone was ready for this level of BS, though.

The next debate, I expect, will be different. I don't think the next news org is going to allow him to constantly yap. I'll bet that they do insert a rule that says they will simply mute the mike of the person speaking, period. It makes any news org and every moderator that allows this look like an idiot.

I don't think Wallace is entirely at fault. I doubt that they expected this level of shitshow, much less discussed how to truly deal with this idiotic misbehavior. They should have - you prepare for worst-case scenarios. I don't see a serious news org allowing this yet again, having seen Dump's performance.

3. Spriinger would handle it a lot better than Wallace. Plus he had some bouncers.

8. That's because trump's losing. All he can do is interrupt.
