Crap, does that mean all three of the people that would have watched Biden
are now parked at NBC to join the millions watching Trump. i.e. eight (8)
people showed up in Arizona recently at a Harris/Biden rally … or was
it a Biden/Harris rally. I forgot which was running for Prez.

I guess you don’t care about democracy. You can return to Newsmax and Faux News now.

I suppose ABC booking Biden/Harris had nothing to do with publicity. Chill out people, Trump and B/H don’t share the same audience anyway.

Remember when Les Moonves said that Trump was great for ratings? It figures that the network that made him a star; would return the favor. Smh.

Hah! Hah! You funny!

They should have picked a different time-----who will be moderating??? Call the fucker out----he is a traitor------along with the rest of the Vultures in the republican party.

THE EVIL REPUBLICAN PARTY NEEDS TO DIE ON NOV. 3.

We will never have a real discussion on issues as Rupert Murdoch poisons our culture with hate and violence to keep all his elite assholes in power.

Pardone Meeee!!??
The “audience” is the United States of America and the rest of the world affected by what the USA does.
To say they “don’t share the same audience” means that you are fine with two or more silos, each claiming to be the real USA and neither even being given the chance to hear both (or more) “sides” as they would otherwise have to do if both were on the same program.
In other words, a virtual civil war declared and over with total secession, in place.
We need to COME TOGETHER as A country. Otherwise nearly 250 years, then Trump, then total failure.

illusion: I 2nd your proposal! We then have more than enough challenges once the Rethugs lose power. We will have to fight Wall Streeters, Insurance lobbyists.

Lots of work ahead of us, if we are smart enough to vote enmasse, 1st. Get those soulless f’rs out!

And we all have to remember these are some of
the same people: CEOs of msm-that ushered us, Americans into war with Iraq and Afghanistan and Syria, and all these other wars we continue to fight for years and waste our tax $$ on so the defense contractors get richer and we starve and suffer and become a 3rd world country ourselves. NBC, CBS, ABC, etc…all evil bastards.

Gee NBC, you didn’t even get any nice words from Trump for selling out the American voters on his behalf! Will you never learn? And now you have tarnished your name by throwing in with those who have killed 200,000+ Americans with their LIES. The same type of LIES I am sure he told on your kissing Trump’s butt show. I don’t know for sure tho cuz’ I boycotted you. Still am. Shame on you! No better than he is!

Don the Con – talking about CON –cast???

Trump had a young black woman in a tight sweater behind him in the camera shot. One who nodded her head off at every second word the idiot said, then clapped enthusiastically for him when the applause sign went on. Don the Con all over it.

Biden meanwhile had a “We the People” preamble backdrop – another con if you are a socialist – however in these times he has my vote.

DOWN with Trump; he’s a sick-wretched annoying person with unscrupulous & dishonorable concepts.

As it turned out, while most of the criticisms are true, drumpf did himself no favors by taking them up on their offer. The NBC people could have defended their decision prior to the show by pointing out that drumpf would undoubtedly self-immolate during the “performance.” And he did in truly great fashion.
