My most memorable line from the 2016 debates is Hillary saying “It’s just awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country,” and Trump replying, “Because you’d be in jail.”

Best Debate

Did you know: Despite the popularity of the Kennedy-Nixon debates, President Lyndon B. Johnson turned down requests to debate the Republican presidential candidate Barry Goldwater in 1964. In so doing, Johnson touched off a 16-year period of no presidential debate series being held.

BREAKING: Biden flip flops and now refuses ear inspection to look for ear buds for the purpose of having answers transmitted to him. Trump consents to the inspection but now Biden refuses.

Biden agreed to the inspection a week ago but now they are refusing. Is this going to be their excuse t back out of the debate?
