1. No. They're at podiums. He lurked behind Clinton at the town hall they had.

...this set up will be similar to the first debate.

3. Ah, thanks. I hope the debate prep team prepared for a response anyways.

No way to know for sure what Trump might do.

4. I think it would be disasterious for Trump if he did that...

It makes sense in the context of a town hall, where the candidates are roaming the stage. I recall in 2000, Bush was talking and Al Gore was walking around and walked up to him and Bush just nodded.

It can play differently in that environment:

But it'd be a complete optical failure if Trump walked from his pulpit over to Biden's, especially when they're likely practicing social distancing. I actually hope he does that.

5. You are right. And the image of lurking behind a man is definitely different than a woman.

7. I would love to see him just walk out.

Get flummoxed and walk off stage. It'd be the end of his campaign. I could breathe easier this next week. But Trump knows this is it for him and I frankly don't think he'll pull too many crazy stunts on stage. He'll throw punches, and rant and rave, but he's not going to do anything that leaves people thinking, "OH MY GOD" like in the first debate.

8. My rational side agrees with you.

But at the same time, he seems to be way worst on his tantrums since his WR days. He can't seem to control his emotions at all. He was bad in 2016 but he can still pick his battles and stays on message. But he hasn't spoken much on his policies or messages lately. All he does is airing his grievances and making everyone his enemy. So I can't rule out his more erratic responses.

10. Agreed.

The final debate four years ago is a great example of this. Trump was still Trump but he at least was able to stay on message for a portion of the debate and it was likely his best performance.

But Trump is way more unhinged today than he was four years ago. He hasn't been on message at any point since his Oval Office address back in March.

So, it would not surprise me if he came out and just totally mucked everything up.

I still don't think he does it. But who knows? It's clear his handlers have no control over him. So, their advice isn't being heeded.

9. tRumps

aides are telling him to cool it, but with this addict I don't he will.

Let him walk off the stage. That would be great.

6. Who would love to see Biden pop him on his ass if he did?

Hell that would bring half of tRUMP's base over to the Biden side.
