US Presidential Debate 2020: “Would you shut up, man?” Joe Biden, the Democratic nominee told Donald Trump during the US presidential debate on Tuesday.
After getting cut off by the United States President Donald Trump repeatedly for over the first 20 minutes of the debate, the Democratic nominee Joe Biden had enough.
Eventually, moderator Chris Wallace had to move on to a new subject with 70 minutes to go.
“That was a really productive segment. Keep yappin’, man,” Biden said sarcastically.
Later during the US Presidential Debate 2020, Joe Biden asked Donald Trump to “just shush” after the president kept interjecting despite Wallace trying to keep things in order.
During the debate, Biden and Trump debated on issues such as the president’s handling of the Covid-19 pandemic, the way to deal with COVID-19 going forward, and on who to trust on coronavirus vaccine when it will be available.
The other issues include taxes, economy, healthcare, and climate change. However, the 90-minute debate was overshadowed by President Donald Trump’s unbridled aggression.
“Did you use the word smart?” Donald Trump asked Joe Biden. “You graduated either the lowest or almost the lowest in your class. Don’t ever use the word smart with me, Joe,” Trump said.
“Will you shut up, man?” Biden said. He further called the president a “clown” and the “worst president America has had”. Joe Biden also took the opportunity to address voters by looking directly at the cameras.
The 90-minute presidential debate was held at Cleveland Clinic under strict social distancing guidelines. As per the report, only 80 people were allowed in the audience who were mostly family members of the two nominees, campaign staff, hosts, health and security officials and journalists.
