CNN's @ddale8  says while Joe Biden was "largely accurate" during tonight's presidential debate, "we had an avalanche of lying from President Trump." He says at points during the debate, "almost every single thing (Trump) said ... was inaccurate" #Debates2020 

Undecided Ohio voter on CNN panel, asked if Biden's "clown" remark bothered him: "He’s spent the last five years calling Elizabeth Warren Pocahontas... Is it great that Joe called him a clown, no. But when the shoe fits—when the clown shoe fits."

President Trump was asked to condemn white supremacy. He refused. He told white supremacists to “stand back and stand by.” President Trump is a national disgrace, and Americans will not stand for it.

"stand back and standby" deserved a followup question and it's hard to imagine a black moderator wouldn't have asked one

“The president of the United States, in the year of our lord 2020, refuses to condemn white supremacists,” Kamala Harris tells @jaketapper 

think about the grief Hillary Clinton took 4 years ago for using the word “deplorable” then think of a word to describe a president who in tonight’s debate wouldn’t condemn white supremacists, embrace the legitimacy of America’s democratic elections or behave like a mature adult

Not as big of a deal substantively as embracing white supremacist militias, but I’m struck that the Great Champion of the Working Class made fun of his opponent for not having an Ivy League degree.

There are young people in this country, and THIS is the only America they know. They are SCARED. This is not a normal night. And this cannot BECOME a normal night. #PresidentialDebate  #Election2020  #VOTE 

On one level, the president attempted to execute his “my opponent is senile” strategy and it backfired in a spectacular but obvious way. On another level, the president encouraged white nationalist militias to help him block the legitimate counting of votes.
