Biden should get his time back.

Total up how many minutes of his time he lost to interruptions and all four networks give him that time to answer the questions he was asked. They can take it out of the time allocated to the third debate so no one is out of pocket. Add on any time in the second debate that Trump steals.

The American public deserves to hear from its Presidential candidates and no one should be able to take that away.

Trump's getting even more free airtime about how he "dominated" the debate stage and that's even less time we get to hear about policy proposals or substantive discussion.

1. Yep, he should get his time back.

He could go on Fux News and have Chris Wallace ask him the very same questions again. With no orange idiot to interrupt him.

3. The debate was a sham debate

Trump wants to debate the Straw Man Joe Biden. He wants Biden to be mentally deteriorated, crooked, in favor of defunding the police, and a leftwing radical.

Trump does not want to debate The Real Joe Biden. So him he just interrupts incessantly and makes a sham out of it. His core voted for the proverbial bull in the china shop, and that's what they will get. He's their Medieval Times Red Knight.

If Biden refused to "debate" him again, Trump "wins" because Biden is back in his basement and afraid to face him again.

Really the moderator needs the ability to mute the mics. That's a disgrace to need that with the leader of the free world, but it is what it is.

Biden can debate the Real Donald Trump. There's no need to distort Trump's position on anything.

5. Trump and Biden were actually relatively equal in speaking time

There was only 70 seconds difference between the two, 39:06 for Trump to 37:56 for Biden. Put another way, Trump spoke 50.76% of the time and Biden spoke 49.24% of the time.

Pretty amazing given how Trump bullied Joe and Chris.
