Presidential Debate Schedule Announced

OTB: The Commission on Presidential Debates has announced the dates and venues for this fall’s Presidential and Vice-Presidential debates:

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton will participate in three general election debates from September through October, according to the schedule released Thursday by the nonpartisan organization that sponsors the debates.

The Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) announced the first debate will take place on Sept. 26, 2016 at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio, while the second and third debates will occur on Oct. 9, 2016 at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, and Oct. 19, 2016 at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas in Las Vegas, Nevada. Though each debate will run from 9-10:30 p.m. E.T. without commercial breaks, debates will also be divided into different time segments lasting 10-15 minutes. This format builds upon the 2012 debates where longer segments allowed candidates to get through the specifics of their policy proposals.  MORE

  1. Unless Donald Trump slams his fist sideways down Hillarys’ throat and screams “You’re a mother fu**ing c*nt!”, I won’t be watching.

    Otherwise I will.

  2. After watching so many of Hillary’s campaign stops where she gets booed and heckled and then walks off stage angry and flustered.. It’ll be rather exciting to watch Trump tear into her like the mechanically separated chicken you find in a slim jim stick.. Oh, Yeah!

  3. Theater of the Absurd.

    These are less “debates” than loosely strung-together talking points and sound bites. Total fucking BULLSHIT. I will try to miss them, though the wife will probably want to watch. This election cycle has insulted my intelligence enough to last a lifetime – or a couple of lifetimes.

    izlamo delenda est …

  4. It will be a pile on no matter which network or moderators. They’re ALL progressive lap dogs. Too bad we can’t go to a real *debate* — what was the title of that early Sunday show where the colleges debated each other?

  5. It will be like old rasslin’ events, where the “referee” was totally partial.

    Trump Question: “Were you always a kitten-hating, racist pig, or is that a recent position for you?”

    Hillary Question: “Who did you like better as Samantha’s husband on ‘Bewitched’, Dick Sargent or Dick York? And why?”

    The FIX was put in place in the debates after Reagan eviscerated Carter in 1980. The DimocRATS cannot win anything fairly.

  6. These debates are a sham. Why? Nobody ever pushes back when the candidate refuses to answer the question.

    Moderator: “Mrs. Clinton, please justify for the American people your use of a private e-mail server, which potentially exposed America’s national secrets to our enemies and possibly harmed covert intelligence agents.”

    Hitlery: “Well, ________, that’s old news people don’t care about. I just want to talk about American working families who have a hard time making ends meet, who cannot afford to send their kids to college and feel locked out of the American Dream. These people are why I will be the next president, because they understand that the work started by my husband and by Barack 0bama must continue until… blah, blah, blaaaaah….:

  7. They’re not debates. They’re joint press conferences. And I won’t be watching. I already know I’m voting for Trump and I’d rather shave my junk with a cheese grater than listen to hillary’s whining, screeching, phony voice for two hours.

  8. Awwwwww. Cankles will miss her granddaughter’s second birthday, which falls on the date of #1.

    I can’t wait. My prediction: Trump will wipe the floor with Hillary’s pantiliners AND MAKE HER EAT THEM.

  9. Hopefully Trump will come out swinging and Hillary will be on the ropes with only the moderators to bail her out.
    Then the media will pile on Trump for acting like a bully.

  10. I’d like to see Trump start things off in the pre-debate handshake ceremony by grabbing Hillary by both ears and giving her a massive head butt.

    And then turn around to the audience and pump his arms up and down a few times like a circus strongman while Hillary writhes in agony on the ground behind him.

    Now that’s what *I* would call Must See TV!
