KEY POINTS
President Trump and Joe Biden brawled on their first chance to challenge each other face to face.
Hardly a minute went by without one of the candidates interrupting the other, whether on the coronavirus, the Supreme Court or the economy.
Even the moderator, Fox News’ Chris Wallace, couldn’t always stay above the fray.

President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden had their first chance to challenge each other face to face. They did – a lot.

Hardly a minute went by in the 90-minute brawl without one of the candidates angrily interrupting the other, whether on the coronavirus pandemic, the Supreme Court, the economy or anything else, including each other’s families.


“Will you shut up, man?” Biden snapped at Trump at one point. “You’re the worst president America has ever had,” he said later.

“China ate your lunch,” Trump shot back at Biden during questions on the economy.

Even the moderator, Fox News’ Chris Wallace, couldn’t always stay above the fray.

“I hate to raise my voice, but why shouldn’t I be different than the two of you?” the exasperated host said at one point.

The first question was about the Supreme Court, where Trump has nominated conservative Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the seat left vacant by the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

“We won the election,” Trump began. “Elections have consequences.”

Biden responded that “the American people have a right to have a say,” and that “we should wait” until after the presidential election to select another justice.

But Trump jumped in before the former vice president had finished his answer. The two candidates started sparring, first over Barrett’s record but quickly moving on to other territory.

Wallace jumped in after a few exchanges, and himself began to bicker with Trump.

“Please let the vice president talk,” Wallace admonished Trump at one point.

Trump and Biden continued to interrupt each other. “Would you shut up, man?” Biden snapped at Trump.

As Wallace moved onto the coronavirus, Biden said with a laugh: “That was really a productive segment.”
