    I doubt it's a stunt, because he's just been made a complete fool.

    74 and obese, his future isn't exactly clear. Never was a Biden fan, but he was honorable and IMO too respectable in the way he approached Trump's turn for the worse today; if the shoe was on the other foot, Trump would've called Biden a loser and wished his family got it too.
    I thought that too, but I think Biden has taken the right tack. After thinking about this and reading a bit more, I definitely don't think this is a hoax (he's in the freaking hospital), but I don't see much upside for Trump.

    Faux News is already running stories complaining about the left politicizing this, but it was Trump who made COVID-19 political in the first place. Biden taking the high road isn't going to hurt him one bit.

    Honestly, I see this as giving Trump an out, an excuse for losing in potentially a landslide, that he won't have to blame on voting fraud that even if it happened, would have been caused by him in the first place. That to me, is potentially a relief.

    There's nothing Trump likes more than an excuse for failing, especially a faceless virus that he blames on the Chinese and not his own incompetence.

    Yeah, things are so bizzarro world that I give the odds of "Trump gets COVID" being a political stunt >50%. The BS electioneering has basically been going non-stop since 2016, and I really hope that the new normal is not for both parties to be in mega campaign mode 24/7/356 from now on. The stupidity is painful.

    Except he's been trying to play up Biden as "weak" for months. Using the sympathy card because he got sick (due to his own incompetence in fact), doesn't exactly play to that theme very well.

    Unless something horrible happens, I don't see this changing much. His fans are basically living in an alternative universe, nothing is ever going to change their minds. I mean, Herman Cain contracted COVID from his stupid rally and died months ago - it didn't make any difference.

    I was thinking the same thing, he's goona survive and this I can see this as a political win. Further useful by keeping his name in the news on something sympathetic and not white supremacy

    People seem to forget how bad Pence is and the fact that he is actually smart makes things scarier.

    With the amount of everyone including Chris Wallace was talking over each other I hope they do a debate where each persons mic is only turned on for their allotted time then immediately muted once it's up.

    " A new high watermark in national shame."

    "It is hard to imagine how the evening could have been more disrespectful to voters or a more embarrassing glimpse into the state of American political culture."

    Embarrassing is the first word that comes to mind. Second is unwatchable. "Debate" ? That's a pretty loose term. Trump speaks exclusively in disinformation and exaggerated hypotheticals, besides being unwilling to follow simple debate guidelines. Him not disavowing white supremacists was no surprise, one of the few areas Trump proves himself consistent: consistent racist dog-whistling, consistently in it for himself, consistently not up to the job.

    The other thing that most comes to mind is the amount of time and money this country wastes on these ridiculous election spectacles. It's definitely the one place we don't need to be a circus and an industry. We need big-time campaign finance & election reform but I'm not sure how possible that is in this country anymore.
