The first Presidential Debate that took place in Ohio on September 29 was one of the few times that the country saw such a heated debate between the two candidates.
Fitting for an edge in their bitter campaign, the two men frequently interrupted each other with angry interjections, with Mr. Biden eventually snapping at Mr. Trump “Will you shut up, man?
That was after the President badgered him over his refusal to comment on whether he would try to expand the Supreme Court in retaliation if Mr. Trump’s high court pick, Amy Coney Barrett, was confirmed to replace the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
With just 35 days until the election, and early voting already underway in some states, Mr. Biden stepped onto the stage holding leads in the polls — significant in national surveys, close in some battleground states — and looking to expand his support among suburban voters, women and seniors.
The Democratic opponent, while talking about how Trump has been lying to the nation, especially related to the novel coronavirus, called Trump to be ‘not very smart’.
Trump slammed back at Biden by saying “There’s nothing smart about you, Joe. Forty-seven years, you’ve done nothing.”
When the frontrunner Biden was constantly being interrupted by Trump, Biden snapped and said, “It’s hard to get a word in with this clown.” This is probably the first time such a remark has been passed in the Presidential debate.
