The second presidential debate between President Trump and Joe Biden is off and running, and during the opening segment about COVID-19 it didn’t take long for the Democrat nominee’s basement strategy to get zinged:

Trump is trying so hard to be “respectful” that instead of calling Biden “big guy” like the emails he said “Big Man” ??

Team Biden probably won’t appreciate the amount of time the moderator allowed the discussion about Hunter Biden’s business dealings to continue.
