President Trump on Tuesday night reminded Americans that he’s unafraid to dominate his opponent and lower political discourse.
He managed to repeatedly insult Joe Biden, who responded with a few barbs of his own. Trump even sent what appeared to be a message of solidarity to the white supremacist Proud Boys group.
Trump’s assertion at the end of the debate about the election being fraudulent made clear that he knows he’s losing. Those were not the words of a confident incumbent who expects to win, but of a desperate man hoping to convince his supporters that, if he loses, it can only be because shadowy, unnamed forces stole the election from him.
