Do you think the debate between Trump and Biden will happen?

I just thought about Trump coughing during the debate and how the world would react to that. It can't look good. So my thinking is that unless Trump is fully recovered and no coughs in days, he would not participate in a debate. He cannot edit out the cough and he knows how bad it looks if he coughs.

So I think it's unlikely that Trump will participate in the next debate. What do you think?

8. Imagine in the town hall, a normal American is asking Trump a question and Trump starts coughing

Said normal American runs out of the room...... best tv show ever if it's not reality.

SNL, if you are listening......

4. The Presidential debates are over

Trump and his family's recklessness should be cited as the reason.

The VP debate becomes even more important.

5. No debate, he will use this as an excuse because he really exposed himself as a first class jerk

That said, if he ends up surviving The CV He will then do the debate and crow he is a Superman.

But at least with his fake diagnosis he got the media off the disaster of his debate and the tax cheating exposure. Hes a master distractor.

22. "He's a master distractor..............."

Absolutely!!!

You've got to wonder what he has next? I mean, really, how many fake aces can he really have up those sleeves/hospital gowns?

9. Joe will go and do it one-sided. If trump shows, Joe should ask for the hall to be cleared, and for

all participants to have their own rooms with video feeds.

11. If Biden throws down the gauntlet. "If you are too sick or weak for the next debate, we understand.

But if you are up to it, I want us to talk about who would be the best leader at this challenging time." for example. Trump would not be able to say no, unless he was real sick. Also, it could be done virtually without travelling to the studio.

13. Even with a best case recovery, Trump would have to do Oct. 15 from quarantine.

If his condition is as serious as it looks from the outside, he may not be out of bed for the Oct. 22 debate.

He is not going to be anywhere near 100%, and Trump's ego won't let him risk looking weak.

15. I agree with others above.

Trump will bow out, but Biden MUST be given the same prime time air by all teh networks. Biden isn't sick. TRUMP is! Sorry Republicans. Life is not fair.

21. I think we'll have the VP debate, but no more with Trump.

I think he's going to drop out altogether.
