    Tech billionaire Elon Musk says that if Twitter, Inc. provides “their method of sampling” and confirmation on the authenticity of accounts, then the massive purchase deal which is currently the subject of opposing legal actions “should proceed on original terms.” And, he added in a late-night tweet, he wants to debate the issue publicly with the current CEO. Cybersecurity researcher and data analyst Andrea Stroppa tweeted a summary of the countersuit that Musk filed in response to Twitter’s lawsuit to force him to go through with the purchase deal that Musk terminated after what he said was a “material breach” of the terms by Twitter. Stroppa wrote that it’s clear from Twitter SEC filings that monetizable daily active users (mDAU) is the “key metric” for the company’s revenue and market value. “mDAU is an ad hoc metric, created to protect Twitter’s interests, said Stroppa. ‘No competitor uses something similar.” [email protected] counterclaim suit against Twitter. Clearly, from Twitter SEC filings, mDAU is the key metric. It is the key metric for its business rev. And its market value;...
    Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has been approached by one unnamed network and two unnamed cable channels to air his proposed debate against Twitter chairman Parag Agrawal, after Musk dropped his bid to buy Twitter, sources tell DailyMail.com. Musk tweeted at Agrawal on Saturday, challenging him to a public debate 'about the Twitter bot percentage.' Musk wrote in a now-deleted tweet he wants Agrawal to 'prove to the public that Twitter has But Twitter has also requested information from Musk's adviser, Morgan Stanley.  More subpoenas for the companies Tesla and SpaceX have also been requested to turn over information about the deal, along with conversational exchanges with their boss, according to Bloomberg.  Bret Taylor, Twitter's chairman, tweeted the board was 'committed to closing the transaction' under the current terms of the deal and they were 'confident' they would win.  In May, the crypto-currency exchange Binance put $500 million towards the Tesla CEO's $7.1 billion buyout of Twitter.

    United States Senate candidate and former professional football player Herschel Walker (R-Georgia) delivered a bizarre and incoherent response to a question about whether he intends to debate incumbent Democratic Senator Reverend Raphael Warnock ahead of the November midterm electo Warnock challenged Walker, who has the backing of ex-President Donald Trump, to a debate last week. "Are you going to debate him?" Fox Business anchor Stuart Varney asked Walker on Friday morning. READ MORE: Herschel Walker said states 'can just stop all' same-sex marriages "Well I've called him on two debates, I've called him on two debates. He turned me down on both of them because I said what I want to do is see a fair and equitable debate wherefore the people, not about some press, not about some party, but the people get a chance to see the differences between my opponent and myself," Walker replied. He then fired off a laundry list of specious right-wing talking points. "My opponent believes in raising taxes during a recession. My opponent believes in being soft on crime. He voted with...
    Sen. Bernie Sanders played defense of President Joe Biden's agenda when he squared off with Sen. Lindsey Graham in a wide-ranging debate aired on Fox Nation Monday.  'Inflation is not just Joe Biden's issue,' Sanders said, as Graham blamed Democrats' $1.9 trillion stimulus bill passed last year, the American Rescue Plan.  'You have to explain why it takes place around the world and that has to do with supply chain, the terrible war in Ukraine, and in my view, corporate greed,' Sanders, D-Vt., claimed during the fiery debate at the Edward M. Kennedy Institute in Massachusetts. Graham, meanwhile, blamed Democratic policies for what he called an 'inflationary death spiral.'  'The American Rescue Plan - according to Larry Summers, not Lindsey Graham -  was ill-conceived and ill-designed and would do more to spark inflation than any policy in last several decades,' the South Carolina Republican said, invoking Obama-era economic advisor and Clinton-era Treasury Sec. Larry Summers.  Inflation is now running at 8.6 percent as of May, the highest rate in over 40 years.   He then blamed Sanders and other Democrats for...
    President Joe Biden shut down questions about Roe v. Wade from the Catholic Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN) Washington Correspondent Owen Jensen, a vocal opponent of abortion rights. The president took questions from reporters before boarding Marine One for his trip to Superior, Wisconsin in support of his Build Back Better agenda. Things started off innocuously enough with probing questions from a reporter who broke some bad news to the dairy industry: Q: What did you give up for Lent? THE PRESIDENT: All sweets. Q: All sweets? THE PRESIDENT: And I’m — you know me, I start off with dessert. Q: So, no ice cream? THE PRESIDENT: No ice cream. Nothing. After taking questions on a variety of issues related to Ukraine, Biden made his way to the end of the line, where Jensen — who tangles frequently with White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki over the issue of abortion rights — pressed him about his support for Roe: JENSEN: Pope Francis asked for prayers and fasting today for the people of Ukraine on this Ash Wednesday. Pope Francis is asking...

      Madison Cawthorn/Twitter Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC) has been taunting MSNBC host Rachel Maddow after one of her producers accidentally emailed his office, and shared a concern that he might want to appear on her show. On Monday, a Maddow producer emailed an NBC News colleague about an attempt by a group of North Carolina voters to prevent Cawthorn from running for reelection this year. The campaign seeks to connect the Republican to “insurrection” with regard to his support for former President Donald Trump on Jan. 6 before the Capitol riot. Cawthorn’s office was mistakenly copied in the email, in which the unnamed producer expressed concern that Cawthorn might request to appear on The Rachel Maddow Show if the program were to reach out to his office about the story, Fox News reported. The reported email read: We are kinda interested in this AP story (below) that just dropped about Rep. Madison Cawthorn. A group of voters in NC is challenging his candidacy based on his ties to the insurrection,” the producer wrote, according to the email obtained by Fox...
    Sean Rayford/Getty Images Former President Donald Trump doubled down Thursday on his challenge to debate the validity of the 2020 presidential election on television. In a statement released via email by his Save America Pac, Trump said, “Has it been at all noticed that I offered to debate anybody, on television or otherwise, about the RIGGED Presidential Election of 2020.” While state audits and investigations of election fraud have turned up no evidence that the 2020 presidential election was inaccurate, Trump continues to claim it was: a narrative that has been dubbed the “big lie” by his critics. Trump, known for his harsh criticism of the media, also took a swipe at cable news’ flailing ratings. “This was a publicly stated challenge—I have been called a “ratings machine,” and therefore would be good for television economics—which have not been doing so well lately,” Trump added. Trump first challenged “anyone” to debate him about the validity of the 2020 election in November and didn’t receive any major takers at the time. The Washington Post’s Philip Bump wrote at the time “the...
    U.S. President Donald Trump, with bandages seen on his hand, takes off his face mask as he comes out on a White House balcony to speak to supporters gathered on the South Lawn in Washington, October 10, 2020.Tom Brenner | Reuters Former President Donald Trump says he received a booster vaccine shot for Covid-19 — but he doesn't want to hear any criticism about it. "Oh, don't, don't, don't!" said Trump, waving his hand dismissively, as some people in an audience in Dallas on Sunday afternoon seemed to react negatively to the Republican saying he got the booster. His comments come as a relatively large percentage of Republicans have refused to get even initial doses of the coronavirus vaccines, and as GOP governors resist vaccine and mask mandates. The Kaiser Family Foundation found in a recent poll that as of October, 60% of unvaccinated Americans are Republicans. Research has shown that boosters appear effective against the surging omicron variant of Covid. Before Trump spoke Sunday, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who was the Republican vice presidential nominee in 2008,...
    Chris Wallace shocked the media industry on Sunday when he announced that he’d be leaving Fox News after 18 years of hosting Fox News Sunday. He is moving to CNN’s forthcoming streaming service CNN+, which is set to launch in 2022. His departure was hailed by supporters of Donald Trump, who had soured on the anchor, especially after he moderated the first 2020 presidential debate. In that debacle, Trump, who was recently revealed to have tested positive for Covid-19 just days before, constantly interrupted and otherwise domineered the debate. Appearing on Chris Salcedo’s radio show on Monday, Trump reacted to the news. “He always wanted to be his father, but he wasn’t born with that kind of talent,” said Trump, referring to the late newsman Mike Wallace. “And we’re lucky to have him out.” The former president claimed Wallace favored Biden and said he felt as though he was debating both of them at the same time. “When I had the debate, I was debating him and Biden,” Trump said. “He was tougher. I was debating him and Biden. I...
    Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky took aim at frequent foe Dr. Anthony Fauci on Tuesday morning, claiming President Biden's chief medical adviser is acting like the 'all-high priest of science.'  He warned against making Fauci 'untouchable' in an interview with Fox & Friends, claiming it would throttle debate outside of the doctor's own 'edicts and mandates.'  Republican lawmakers have been blasting Fauci this week over an interview he gave to CBS on Sunday during which he dismissed GOP criticism of him and his work as lies and opposition to science.  The scientist also claimed Republicans are using him as a 'scapegoat' to shield from anger at Donald Trump.  'It's sort of a way of ending all debate because if you attack him or have any debate over any of his edicts or his mandates, you're attacking science,' Paul said on Tuesday. 'But this is a very, very dangerous sort of idea. The idea that a government bureaucrat represents science and that he is now untouchable - that it is sort of like you are now contradicting the all high priest...

    Kyle Rittenhouse’s mother spoke out in an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity Thursday night as her son’s murder trial continues. Wendy Rittenhouse teared up reacting to the moment her son burst out crying on the stand. Hannity told her, “I read people pretty well. I’ve done it my whole life. And that seemed like a classic panic attack.” “I just broke down with Kyle crying like that,” she said. “It made me feel heartbroken, sad. And I wanted to just go up there and hug him and tell him it would be okay.” Hannity then referenced a video President Joe Biden made after last year’s chaotic presidential debate with Donald Trump. This was the debate where Trump was repeatedly challenged to condemn white supremacists and where he infamously said, “Stand back and stand by.” Biden’s Twitter account later posted a video with the caption, “There’s no other way to put it: the President of the United States refused to disavow white supremacists on the debate stage last night.” There’s no other way to put it: the President of the...
    Donald Trump revealed that his youngest child Barron was critical of his first 2020 presidential debate performance against Joe Biden, claiming the 14-year-old told him he was being 'too tough,' according to a new book excerpt released Tuesday.  In a section exclusively obtained by DailyMail.com, the former president said he was still fuming at Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace's moderation of the September debate. 'The problem was Biden would speak and it was lie after lie, after lie. Everything he said was a lie, this guy, and then Chris Wallace wouldn’t let you respond. Chris Wallace was terrible,' Trump said.  During the infamously chaotic debate, Biden and Trump took turns dismissing and speaking over each other. Their unruly and at times aggressive conduct forced debate organizers to release a statement vowing to make the next engagement 'more orderly.'  Trump admitted to catching wind of some of the negative feedback - including from his 15-year-old son, then just 14 years old.  'People thought I was too belligerent,' he said. 'I will say my own son Barron said, "Dad, you were...
    Donald Trump hasn’t announced whether he’ll run for president again in 2024, but he’d like to inject some outside the box faces as possible debate moderators regardless. After learning that Trump touted him and Dave Portnoy as potential debate moderators, Outkick founder Clay Travis was “ecstatic” at the prospect. “I would love to do that! I would love to moderate a debate, I don’t know that it’s likely to happen,” Travis acknowledged. The suggestion from Trump came during a recent radio interview with Hugh Hewitt. “Clay would be great. Portnoy would be great. You shouldn’t use a Chris Wallace,” Trump told Hewitt. “He’s terrible. He was terrible. He had no control of the debate.” Travis agreed with Trump on those who were tasked to referee the 2020 debates. “I do think that a lot of the debate moderators didn’t do a great job during the course of the 2020 debate,” the Outkick founder and conservative radio host added, before noting he thought Megyn Kelly did a good job in 2016. “I think I’d do a pretty good job trying...

    LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- The recall election is less than two months away and 41 candidates will appear on the ballot to replace Gov. Gavin Newsom. Republican candidate Kevin Faulconer wants to debate Newsom, but tells Eyewitness News he's not holding his breath."I'm absolutely challenging Gavin Newsom to stand up and try and defend his record," said Faulconer. "I'm happy to stand up and defend mine, and I think that's the debate that Californians expect. I think that's one that they deserve. We had two million Californians who signed this recall petition. This recall is happening, and I think they want that debate and they want to hear about this competition of ideas."Loyola Law School professor Jessica Levinson believes Newsom is taking the recall effort seriously, but isn't too concerned about those running against him."We don't have a big marquee name in this list. And the date of this recall, I think that also helps the governor," said Levinson. "Biggest question for the governor will probably be how the COVID numbers are doing and how his base is feeling.

    MSNBC host Joy Reid accepted a challenge from Manhattan Institute senior fellow Christopher Rufo to debate critical race theory but barely allowed him to utter a sentence before cutting him off throughout the interview.  Following a dustup on Twitter, which Reid admitted was a "hyperbole zone," Rufo appeared on Wednesday's installment of "The Reidout" to discuss his activism against the divisive ideology that's being debated in schools nationwide.  Rufo told Reid that she had spread "four key false pieces of information" about CRT, listing her claims that it "wasn't being taught in schools," that most American students have been taught what she calls "confederate race theory" and that slavery was "not so bad," that state legislation will "prevent" schools from teaching the history of racism, and that CRT isn't rooted in Marxism.  "I think that all four of those claims are wrong and I would love to discuss them tonight," Rufo said, not knowing that Reid will avoid addressing them for the rest of the interview.

    Tucker Carlson declined to speak to Donald Trump after his disastrous debate against Joe Biden, according to a new book exploring Trump's election defeat. The Fox News host, when he finally did speak to the then-president, told him his debate performance on September 29 - when he constantly interrupted Joe Biden - had been poor.  'Everyone says I did a good job,' Trump told Carlson, according to a forthcoming book by Wall Street Journal reporter Michael Bender.  Carlson reportedly replied: 'I don't know who told you that was good. It was not good.' The anecdote in the book was recounted in The New York Times, by media reporter Ben Smith, who profiled Carlson. Donald Trump is known to be in frequent contact with Tucker Carlson, whose Fox News show attracts three million viewers a night Carlson, 52, is described in a new New York Times profile as a Washington insider and gossip Smith portrayed the 52-year-old as a consummate Washington insider, despite his passionate criticism of elites, and an infamous journalistic source of reliable gossip.  Smith pointed out...
    More On: mayoral race Yang has no answers on MTA takeover, agency debt How to handle the ranked ballot in the New York mayoral race NYC mayoral hopefuls Yang, Adams file dueling ethics complaints NYC mayoral hopeful Eric Adams says too many transit cops are doing desk work Bill de Blasio on Wednesday said none of his would-be successors have presented clear visions for the city’s recovery from the coronavirus pandemic — even though the mayor has yet to detail his own effective plans for combating rising crime, street homelessness and a full reopening of schools in September. “I think they all need to step up a bit,” de Blasio sniped about the slew of candidates at his daily remote press briefing. “I think all of them need to clarify where they want to take us,” he said. The mayoral wannabes were quick to call Hizzoner a hypocrite for criticizing their supposed lack of vision when de Blasio himself has struggled to find solutions for moving the city forward. “This mayor still has no meaningful plan...
    Senator Ted Cruz accused MSNBC host Joy Reid of using a racial slur after she called him 'Stephen' from the moving Django Unchained for calling the Democrat-backed proposal on voting 'Jim Crow 2.0' The Republican senator railed against Reid on Tuesday, tweeting that her 'arrogant condescension' is leading Hispanics to the Republican party.   During a segment on her show on Monday night Reid compared Cruz to Stephen from Django Unchained, referring to the treacherous slave portrayed by Samuel L. Jackson in Quentin Tarantino's 2012 film. Stephen's character is portrayed as loyal to his slave master.  Cruz was not pleased with Reid's comparison and accused the host of using a racial slur.   'I appreciate MSNBC lecturing me on how people of 'my race' are supposed to vote. This arrogant condescension is a big reason Hispanic voters are moving right in large numbers. Also, why is MSNBC ok with their hosts using overt racial slurs ('Stephen from Django')?' Cruz tweeted. Joy Reid says she's "beyond offended" that @TedCruz of the "Jim Crow Party" would utter the word "Jim Crow" while he's "trying to...
    Russian President Vladimir Putin challenged President Biden to an on-air debate after Biden referred to the Russian leader as a "killer." “I’ve just thought of this now,” Putin said to a Russian state television reporter on Thursday. “I want to propose to President Biden to continue our discussion, but on the condition that we do it basically live, as it’s called, without any delays and directly in an open, direct discussion. It seems to me that would be interesting for the people of Russia and for the people of the United States.” In response, the White House said it has no plans to hold a future meeting with Putin and that Biden is “quite busy.” US SANCTIONS 'ACTIVE RUSSIAN AGENT' FOR ANTI-BIDEN ELECTION INTERFERENCE The relationship between Biden and Putin has grown tense over the past few days after Biden referred to the Russian leader as a "killer" in an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos.

    Alexey Druzhinin/Getty Images Russian President Vladimir Putin challenged his U.S. counterpart Joe Biden to a live debate on Thursday. The challenge comes after Biden said Putin was a “killer” in an interview with ABC News, a remark that set up a furor in Russia and multiple responses from the Russian leader. “I’ve just thought of this now,” Putin told an RT reporter. “I want to propose to President Biden to continue our discussion, but on the condition that we do it basically live, as it’s called. Without any delays and directly in an open, direct discussion. It seems to me that would be interesting for the people of Russia and for the people of the United States.” Putin went on to propose that they hold the debate as early as this Friday, to allow him time to enjoy a weekend getaway. “I don’t want to put this off for long.

    Sen. David Perdue says he's upset the media didn't hold Ossoff 'accountable' for humiliating him at their Oct. 28 debate. Sen. David Perdue (R-GA) once again refused this week to attend a debate with Democratic opponent Jon Ossoff prior to the Jan. 5 run-off election. According to a Newsweek report, Perdue and Ossoff were both asked to attend a Dec. 6 debate at the Atlanta Press Club. Perdue rejected the invitation. Ossoff's attack on Perdue's record on the pandemic and allegations of insider trading against him — which he has denied — went viral after the last debate between the two men. On Monday, the Georgia senator blamed the media for "fail[ing] to hold him accountable" for what he claimed were repeated "lies" in that debate.

    Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) attacked Chris Wallace after the Fox News anchor compared him to Japanese holdout soldiers from World War II, in light of Cruz’s defense of President Donald Trump’s unfounded claims of widespread election fraud. “It would seem to me that Republicans on Capitol Hill have a role to play in this, very few of them have said ‘look, you pursue your legal options but damp down the rhetoric,’ like Mitt Romney, like Pat Toomey,” Wallace stated. “There are a lot who are just silent and there are some, I mentioned Ted Cruz, who are like the Japanese soldiers who come out 30 years after the end of the war and out of the jungle and say, ‘Is the fight still going on?'” he said. Wallace’s colleague at Fox News, the opinion host Mark Levin, bashed the anchor for his comment. This is way out of line. Keep your politics to yourself, Mr. Journalist.

    Georgia Republican Sen. David Perdue has pulled out of his third and final debate against Democratic challenger Jon Ossoff after a clip from their second encounter went viral. Perdue was set to appear alongside the filmmaker for their ABC-affiliate debate Sunday before the first-term incumbent canceled the matchup. "As lovely as another debate listening to Jon Ossoff lie to the people of Georgia sounds, Sen. Perdue will not be participating in the WSB-TV debate but will instead join the 45th president, Donald J. Trump, for a huge get-out-the-vote rally in Northwest Georgia," Perdue spokesman John Burke said. Trump is scheduled to host a rally in Rome, Georgia. "For eight of the last 14 days of this campaign, Sen. Perdue went back to Washington to work for much needed COVID relief for Georgians, which Jon Ossoff's top donor Chuck Schumer derailed. Sen. Perdue also voted to confirm Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett," Burke said. Perdue and Ossoff's second debate aired Wednesday night on a CBS affiliate.

We cannot treat him like a normal candidate on a debate stage.” The president’s niece called her uncle’s debate behavior “exhausting,” adding that he is interrupting because “I think he’s desperate.”  “He goes into a debate or a town hall specifically with his tactic in his pocket because he knows that getting into a substantive policy discussion is disastrous for him,” Mary Trump said. “His entire administration has been a failure...
    President Donald Trump has begun preparations for the forthcoming presidential debate against Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, Axios reported on Sunday. Scheduled to take place on Thursday night, the debate might be Trump’s last chance to change the trajectory of the race. The president’s debate coaches have reportedly told him to refrain from interruptions and “try to be more likeable.” At the previous debate, Trump interrupted Biden 71 times, while Biden cut him off only 22 times. This was not, it seems, a strategic decision because those close to Trump believe he “saved” Biden at the previous debate, by constantly interjecting, instead of letting him ramble and answer difficult questions. Trump’s team reportedly believes that this time he should simply yield the stage to Biden, who they expect to go off on tangents, “look doddering” and “step on himself.” According to the report, Trump’s team revisited his third debate against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton four years ago for inspiration. A person close to the campaign said that he has to “give people permission to vote for him.” “He...
    Tupac Shakur's brother has slammed President Donald Trump's campaign for leaving a ticket at the vice presidential debate last week for the late rapper just weeks after Sen Kamala Harris named him as the 'best rapper alive'.

    Donald Trump is pushing hard for an in-person second debate on Oct. 15, but he has a long wish list for what it should look like. First, of course he has to be allowed to breathe coronavirus all over the place while everyone pretends to believe that he’s no longer infectious. Second, he objects to the moderator, tweeting: “Steve Scully, the second Debate Moderator, is a Never Trumper, just like the son of the great Mike Wallace. Fix!!!” So … the first two debates are moderated by Republicans, is what he’s saying. But it's still not good enough. Trump is calling for future debates to be moderated by the likes of Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Judge Jeanine, and other unofficial but very loyal members of Team Trump. Friday night he’s supposedly showing his fitness to campaign and debate in person by going on the show of one of those people, Tucker Carlson, where he’ll be interviewed and pretend-evaluated by Dr. Marc Siegel, a Fox News medical “expert” who has been pushing disinformation throughout the coronavirus pandemic. Trump had rejected the move to a remote debate Thursday morning, saying: “You...
    Fox News’ Chris Wallace called out Joe Biden Friday for continuing to dodge questions about court-packing. Wallace first came to the defense of C-SPAN’s Steve Scully, set to moderate the next presidential debate, over a tweet to Anthony Scaramucci Scully said was someone hacking his account. As for the prior issue over the Trump campaign objecting to decisions made by the debate commission, Wallace said Trump “made a big mistake” pulling out of a planned virtual debate, saying while an in-person debate is better, “a virtual debate is better than no debate.” Bill Hemmer also asked about the VP debate this week, and Wallace said while Mike Pence had a good night, most Republicans would have been contented to bask in the storyline of that for a few days but the president steamrolled it with his announcement about pulling out of the debate. He did fault Biden and Kamala Harris for refusing to give a clear answer on court-packing: “It’s 25 days until the election. I don’t think that Biden and Harris are going to be able to hold...

    The moderator of next week's presidential debate raised eyebrows last night by publicly asking Anthony Scaramucci for advice after Donald Trump accused him of bias.  Steve Scully asked the former White House advisor 'should I respond to Trump' in a tweet which appeared to be a misdirected attempt at a private message.  Trump had complained to Fox News host Sean Hannity that Scully was a 'never-Trumper, and I think somebody said he worked for Biden at one point'.   Scully's tweet quickly drew criticism from Trump supporters who said it should be 'disqualifying' - but Scaramucci took it at face value, responding: 'Ignore. He is having a hard enough time. Some more bad stuff about to go down.'    Scaramucci, who lost his job as Trump's communications director after just 10 days in 2017, has become a fierce critic of the president and has called for a vote for Joe Biden to 'save the Republican Party'.  Steve Scully (pictured), who is due to moderate next week's debate, raised eyebrows last night by asking Anthony Scaramucci for advice about how to handle criticism...
    President Donald Trump has said that he plans to hold a rally in Florida this weekend, after his doctor said he will be able to return to 'public engagements' on Saturday 'I think I'm going to try doing a rally on Saturday night, if we have enough time to put it together. But we want to do a rally in Florida, probably in Florida on Saturday night,' Trump told Fox News host Sean Hannity in a phone interview on Thursday. Trump added that he was considering a second rally in Pennsylvania for Sunday night.  He said that he had not tested negative for coronavirus since his positive result last week, adding that there was 'no reason to test all the time' and saying 'probably the test will be tomorrow.' 'They found very little infection or virus,' Trump said, but it was unclear what kind of test or what date he was referring to.  Saturday would mark nine days since Trump publicly announced testing positive for COVID-19. Most scientists think that viral shedding continues for about 10 days after symptoms start in...

"At the second debate, we have a never Trumper as a host, but that's okay because I beat him in the second debate also. So, I'm not going to do a virtual debate. I'm not going to waste my time on a virtual debate. That's not what debating is all about. Sit behind a computer and do a debate. that's ridiculous, and then they catch you off whenever they want." : Host Whoopi Goldberg was confused and had to fact-check that there wasn't a second debate and she wasn't sure what Trump was talking about.

    The campaign for President Donald Trump has left a ticket available for long deceased artist Tupac Shakur to attend Wednesday night's debate between Vice President Mike Pence and Democratic vice presidential nominee Sen. Kamala Harris (Calif.), in a swipe to Ms. Harris who recently named Shakur as the "best rapper alive." What are the details? Harris was asked during a CNN interview last month who she believes is "the best rapper alive," and she responded, "Tupac." The Hill reported that after the moderator "reminded her that the famed rapper was no longer among the living. Harris said with a laugh, 'Not alive. I know, I keep doing that!'" She was unable to name an alternative favorite among the living. Kamala Harris asked, who’s the best rapper alive?

    Reuters October 6, 2020 0 Comments When Jill Biden noticed her husband standing too close to journalists for her comfort while taking questions on Monday, she walked up and pulled the 77-year-old U.S. presidential candidate back. People surrounding Democratic nominee Joe Biden are taking heightened measures to protect the self-described “tactile politician” from a pandemic that has reached the White House, infecting President Donald Trump himself. The Biden campaign – spooked by Trump’s COVID-19 diagnosis just days after debating the former vice president face-to-face last week but unwilling to sideline him so close to the Nov. 3 election – said their candidate would be tested for the virus several times a week compared to just once per week before. Biden also has started keeping his mask on throughout his remarks on the campaign trail, even when standing alone at a podium. Both changes mark a new protocol for the campaign, which regards the novel coronavirus as an existential threat. Weeks ago, asked to name the biggest risk to the campaign, one of Biden’s aides was blunt: “a medical event.”...

    Two polls released Tuesday show Donald Trump trailing his Democratic rival Joe Biden both nationally and in six must-win battleground states as the president returned to the White House from Walter Reed Medical Center Monday night. Among likely voters, 57 per cent said they back Biden, according to a CNN poll taken October 1-4 – and in that time span the president tested positive for coronavirus and was transferred to the hospital for treatment. The poll showed 41 per cent of likely voters plan to cast their ballot for Trump, creating a margin of 16 per cent between the two candidates just four weeks, or 28 days, before Election Day. While Biden holds a national lead, the race for the White House will ultimately come down to a handful of swing states. A separate poll from CNBC/Change research taken Friday through Sunday reveals Biden's stable hold in six battleground swing states essential in driving the outcome of the Electoral College and defeating President Trump in November. Two new polls show Democratic nominee Joe Biden besting Donald Trump by 16...

    Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said Monday that he would be alright with debating President Donald Trump if experts say it’s safe, CNN reported. Biden stopped to speak with reporters Monday when getting on a plane from Delaware to Florida, CNN reported. The former vice president said that he was “reluctant to comment” on anything pertaining to Trump’s health. When asked about Trump’s departing Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in a car to wave at supporters, Biden said the president’s condition is for doctors to comment on. “Listen to the science. If the scientists say that it’s safe and the distances are safe, then I think that’s fine. I’ll do whatever the experts say is appropriate thing to do,” Biden said, according to the CNN video. Biden and Trump’s second face-to-face debate is set for Oct. 15 in Miami, Reuters reported. Trump will still need to be undergoing treatment even if he leaves the medical center, and is currently doing a five-day drug treatment. Biden tested negative for the virus over the weekend.

    (CNN)Ohio Gov. Mike Dewine said Sunday that he has not been contacted by the White House about potential Covid-19 exposure in his state after President Donald Trump tested positive for the virus days after his Cleveland debate."Well, they have not reached out to me. I know that I talked to the CEO of the Cleveland Clinic the other day who gave me an update, who gave me a report so I don't know whether they have reached out to Cleveland Clinic or not. They have not talked to me about it, no," the Republican governor told CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union."The President participated in the first presidential debate against Democrat Joe Biden in Cleveland last week.

    (CNN)The first presidential debate this week was indisputably one of the ugliest in modern US history. President Donald Trump interrupted Joe Biden at nearly every turn, and CNN's Chris Cuomo later described the event as a "shit show." Jeff WeaverAfter the debate, most of the commentators were favorable to Biden, with some Republican pundits going so far as to condemn Trump's performance. But all the talking heads missed a key element of Trump's strategy: he repeatedly tried to bait Biden into repudiating the left in an attempt to fracture the Democratic vote. Trump may be the most disastrous and destructive president in modern American history, but he is not an idiot and those who treat him like he is do so at their own peril.This election is coming down to a game of inches. A few thousand votes in a handful of states will likely determine the next president, as they did in 2016. With the majority of voters already firmly decided, this election will come down to a fight on the margins. Can one candidate animate or suppress...
    In the aftermath of the first presidential debate — which was panned as a disaster and a “s**t show” by people on both sides of the aisle — only one question remains: Will there really be two more?
