NBC News White House Correspondent Kristen Welker has just announced the topics for the final presidential debate next week on October 22 in Tennessee.

There are six topics, most of which are policy-driven topics, where Trump routinely is challenged. They were chosen by Welker, and released through the Commission on Presidential Debates, as the Associated Press reports.

They are: Fighting COVID-19, American Families, Race in America, Climate Change, National Security, and Leadership.

Trump’s response to the coronavirus pandemic has been panned by Republicans and Democrats alike, and his approval rating on the issue, which most Americans place as the most important, is 57.4% disapprove, and just 39.8% approve, according to FiveThirtyEight’s analysis.

11. Nah. He will just obfuscate and

BS his way through, as usual.

He will also not answer questions he does not like and will respond off topic with accusations against Biden/Harris, etc. Moderator will not hold him to topic. He will try to run over his time and talk over Biden, unless they cut his mic.

In other words, it will be Trump as usual. There should be no in-person audience because the Trump team will not wear masks and nobody will order them out if they refuse or remove them after arrival. They want to infect Biden, who should walk out if safety protocols are not followed. Biden should not appear in person in the same room with Trump or any Trump team member in the first place.

14. They should have to wear shock collars.

You want to answer a question by pissing on the nice rug like a unbroken housepet, then you can suffer in kind.

4. unless Welker has a mute button, this will be a total waste of time

none of those topics will be discussed and like the first debate it will just be drumpf saying whatever he wants for 90 minutes over Biden's time.

5. It'll be a hot mess.

Are they going to be able to mute Trump when he won't stop talking? And will he be required to be tested?

8. Trump will insult Hunter

Trump will try to throw Joe off his game by talking about the fake Hunter Biden laptop scandal. Whoever is prepping Joe had better prepare him for Trump throwing the most vile insults out there about Hunter, including the alleged pictures of Hunter smoking crack cocaine with prostitutes. There is no bottom for Trump now, so he will do and say anything. Biden's debate prep needs to prepare for this. It would be like someone calling your wife a wh*re or the c-word to your face--that's how low Trump will go.

12. Joe should turn to the camera and point to fuckwad

And say: “This...THIS is our President?” The turn back toward him and say, “That is the biggest lie you’ve ever told except for the other 25000 lies you’ve told.” Or “That is the most ridiculous thing you’ve ever said except for everything else you’ve ever said”

22. Hopefully Pete will come up with some good replies

Buttigieg is the master at responses that throw an accusation right back in the face of the attacker, but in a smooth as butter way. Let's hope he gives Biden some tips on the type of response that will make Trump look like the unhinged fool that he is.

10. How Can 39.8% Approve Of Trump Handling Of Covid-19?

America has by far the worst outcome, both with cases and deaths, of any developed country in the world. It is not even close. So how does being dead last, with over 220,000 Americans now dead from the disease grounds for approval. I just don't get it.

16. unfortunately

this speaks to the power of the republican propaganda machine, led by channels like fox news and oann. there are too many americans who will believe anything told to them by a right wing liar, and they will never believe anything against trump no matter how much evidence there is.

13. I am so disgusted that nothing has ever been raised about corruption, cronyism, and criminal

behavior in the Executive Branch. Or about emoluments, federal contracting etc.

21. One thing we can be pretty sure of is that Trump won't pull the same stunt he pulled last time.

Talking over Joe to rattle him didn't quite work out for Trump. Actually it was a disaster that fueled a surge in Biden's poll numbers.

Maybe he can play the smug asshole card and just smirk at the camera and mug for his base.
But, it won't get him any more votes than he already has, which is no where near enough to win.

Of course he can lie about everything, his usual modus operandi, but that has worn really thin with the American Public. They've heard all that shit before and it stinks so bad people just tune it out.

So what will he do? Attack Biden's character? Attack Hunter? Attack Obama's birthplace? Bengazi? Hillary's e-mails? All of the above?

He really doesn't have anything new to offer right now; anything that will expand his base.
This is a man who is so used to lying about everything that he can't tell the truth in a way that anyone outside of his base would believe.

He's only doing this to have a chance to get the praise of his loyal subjects. Other than that, he's totally screwed.

25. He just needs a pretext to keep the polls close so he can steal.

Especially in the Battlegrounds.

The polls don't even have to really close - only needs a few outliers so that when Putin's ballot counting software kicks off in a few key precincts it will not be noticed and the press will jjust say another bad year for the polls.

Joe and the Dem Senate and House contenders need a 6% or more cushion in the polls and a huge turnout to prevent this theft.

And That is OUR Job. GOTV and VOTE LIKE YOUR LIFE AND COUNTRY DEPEND ON IT.

They do.

26. Trump can't not be Trump

He probably still thinks he won the first debate, because that's what he's being told by his echo chamber. In the eyes of his base, the strong-arm bully approach won the night. Even so, I don't think he's capable of reigning himself in.
