Trump can't even abide by rules of a debate

He claims he is the Law and Order candidate but can't even abide by the rules of a debate to let his opponent speak without interruption. If he became president would he send everyone who disagreed with him to Siberia?

1. was that, in fact, a rule?

my guess is that it was a rule for the first two minute statements, but not for the rambling follow-ups.


in any event, yeah, the only rule trump knows is that rules don't apply to trump.

3. It's always a rule in an ACTUAL debate.

4. well it certainly wasn't enforced very well.

back in my high school debate days, i remember you couldn't interrupt the speeches that were the bulk of the debate, but in between there were short cross-examinations, and while it was considered poor form to interrupt, it was meant to be a conversation, so there weren't any rules about it.

2. I called it yesterday.

I knew they would have a tough time getting him to shut up.

5. If they wanted an actual debate

they'd shut the mic off as soon as time was called. It's the only way to get a politician to shut up.
