Debate Commission Suggests Rule Changes

Donald Trump was so unhinged in Tuesday night’s debate, with his constant petulant interruptions, that the Commission on Presidential Debates has suggested changing the rules to allow for actual adult conversation. The commission said yesterday that, “additional structure should be added to the format of the remaining debates to ensure a more orderly discussion of the issues.” Donald Trump reacted to the news by going on Twitter and saying, “Try getting a new Anchor and a smarter Democrat candidate!”

One possible idea to improve the debates is to give the moderator the ability to cut a candidate’s microphone. However Chris Wallace, Tuesday night’s moderator, said it wouldn’t make much of a difference because Trump could still interrupt and be heard through Biden’s microphone. Another idea is to make interruptions result in the deduction of time for the candidate speaking out of order. That also would be tough to manage, as Trump could just ignore that rule as well. The fact that this conversation even needs to be taking place is an embarrassment to the election process and the United States as a whole.
