‘Fox & Friends' Trashes Trump for Blowing the Debate Over White Supremacists
Fox NewsPresident Donald Trump might have choked on his Egg McMuffin on Wednesday when tuning into his favorite morning show.

Fresh from an aggressive debate performance which his campaign chalked up as a victory before it had even happened, Trump most likely tuned into Fox & Friends expecting the kind of sycophantic flattery he's become accustomed to over the past four years. However, even the president's pals at Fox thought his debate performance, well, kinda sucked.

All three of the hosts—Brian Kilmeade, Steve Doocy, and Ainsley Earhardt—made clear how deflated they felt the morning after the debate. In particular, Kilmeade seemed despondent that Trump blew the big moment in the one-on-one with Biden: When he failed to grasp the opportunity to condemn white supremacy and the extremist Proud Boys group.

Colbert: Trump's Refusal to Condemn Proud Boys ‘One of the Most Upsetting Moments' of His Life
CBS"Get ready for democracy to crumble!!!" Stephen Colbert shouted at the top of his live post-debate monologue Tuesday night.

"I come to you tonight, ladies and gentlemen, an empty vessel, a man with a mind wiped clean," the Late Show host said. "I have stood in the swirling chaos of creation. I have seen Shiva dancing his destructions, wielding his trident, carving great gouts out of universe. The sky, once both red, blue, and black until all that remained was a starless void and the hollow husk once known as Chris Wallace. We have emerged from the mad whirlwind where we gazed upon the forbidden countenance of God himself. And he said unto us, ‘Jesus, stop interrupting him, you giant baby!'"

"Yes, tonight saw the best minds of our generation destroyed by madness, starving hysterical, naked, dragging themselves through the streets at dawn, looking for the mute button!" he continued. "Forget fact-checking this debate, we couldn't even do any sentence-finding! I never thought I'd say this, but I am so looking forward to the vice presidential debate. I mean, for Pete's sake, children watched that!"

Biden Won the Debate—but the American People Lost
BloombergTuesday's "debate" was a trainwreck. A national embarrassment. A disgrace.

If Joe Biden were looking for a pretext to skip the next two debates, he found it. It would be hard to blame him for concluding this is simply a waste of everyone's time. We'll see.

From the start of this debate, Donald Trump interrupted Biden. Repeatedly. For a while there, it looked like Biden was going to get destroyed—that Trump would simply run over him and Biden would be left sitting there, with that far away look in his eyes. But Biden rallied. He embraced the shit-show format, grew stronger as the night went on and started throwing some of his own elbows.

Sean Hannity Calls Debate ‘Refreshing': Let Them Go at It Like ‘Gladiators'
Fox News/screengrabSean Hannity might be the only person in America who enjoyed Tuesday night's debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden.

"I actually prefer a new style of debate," the Fox News host said when he took over coverage for the network. "Maybe we'll have it in the future someday, and that is let 'em go. We like to watch football and warriors and gladiators in the Octagon and boxers go. Let 'em go! Let them have at it and let the American people decide."

Hannity received some rare pushback from guest Ari Fleischer, who responded, "Sean, I've gotta say, we're not electing gladiators, and this shouldn't be a food fight." He added, "I think this was a train wreck tonight," blaming "both candidates" for interrupting each other too much despite even moderator Chris Wallace acknowledging at one point that Trump interrupting Biden far more than the other way around.

Trump Says He's ‘Counting' on Supreme Court to Decide Election
GettyPresident Donald Trump indicated on Tuesday that he expects the Supreme Court, which he hopes will include his newly nominated Justice, will be the one to decide the fate of the 2020 election.

"I'm counting on them to look at the ballots." Trump said during Tuesday evening's presidential debate. "I hope we don't need them," he added. But the large numbers of anticipated mail-in ballots, Trump said, will inevitably mean questionable election results. "This is going to be a fraud like you have never seen," he said.

Trump reiterated many of his prior, mostly dubious, condemnations of mail-in voting, casting the practice as susceptible to widespread fraud and declining to say that he'd abide by the certification of election results that determined he'd lost to former Vice President Joe Biden.

Trump Denies NYT Report With Claim He Paid Millions in Taxes
Scott Olson/GettyConfronted on the debate stage over an explosive report detailing his chronic avoidance of federal taxes, President Donald Trump denied the findings, repeatedly insisting that he paid "millions of dollars" in taxes to the federal government.

After denying the allegations in a lengthy New York Times story published on Sunday—which drew on two decades of unreported Trump tax records which the paper obtained—Trump sought to repurpose his intricate tax strategy as an indictment of Democratic nominee Joe Biden's long record on economic policy.

"Before I came here, I was a private developer, I was a private business people, like every other private person, unless they're stupid, they go through the laws and that's what it is," said Trump, echoing his past comments about how "smart" businessmen take advantage of the U.S. tax code.
