The only question Joe Biden needs to ask Trump

Honestly, I’m not sure anything is going to significantly move the poll numbers by this point. If you’re still with Trump, nothing is going to change your mind by now.

But at tonight’s debate, I’d still like to see Joe Biden say something along these lines:

Mister President, COVID-19 has taken the lives of over 200,000 Americans, and the pandemic isn’t over yet. I’ve wanted to be President of the United States for many years. It is everything I have worked toward. But if dropping out of the race would somehow end the COVID-19 pandemic, I would do it without even giving it a second thought.

Would you give up the White House if you knew it would save American lives?

We all know Trump wouldn’t be able to immediately say “no.” And the true believers would rationalize it. But as long as there are some “soft” Trump supporters whose minds can be changed, it’s worth doing.

Sean Thomason of Rifftrax has another idea:

    Someone asked a question in that Twitter feed that I’ve also wanted to answer: to whom does Trump owe that much money?
    The American election is a bit like a slow-motion car crash where you can’t do anything except watch with fascinated horror.
