What Is Going on with the Debates?
The first debate between President Trump and Democratic candidate Joe Biden was a train wreck, and Fox's Chris Wallace's seemed to be a clueless engineer. The Vice Presidential debate was definitely a reprieve, but this was not until the Debate Commission changed the debate rules during the debate season. A truly unprecedented move and one that should be cause for concern. Now it appears the third debate slated for Oct. 15 is canceled, although Steve Scully appeared to be compromised via Twitter. So how will the final debate go - or will it be cancelled too? This year has been a mess. Should we have expected anything less from this year's debates?
