Watch Late Night Hosts Unpack the Utter "Chaos" of Last Night's Presidential Debate
Disorderly. Headache-inducing. Infuriating. These are just a few choice words that could be used to describe the first of three presidential debates between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. The 90-minute
discussion argument, which took place Tuesday evening (Wednesday morning Australian time) in Cleveland, saw the incumbent and his Democratic challenger go head-to-head on topics like the economy, racial injustice in the United States, the COVID-19 pandemic, and more. Factual inaccuracies ran rampant as Fox News anchor Chris Wallace moderated — or at least attempted to.
Immediately following the debate, late-night hosts were quick to weigh in on the utter chaos of it all. Trevor Noah, Jimmy Fallon, Stephen Colbert, and Jimmy Kimmel each delivered candid monologues about the tense event, offering their takes on the unwelcome absence of commercial breaks, the need for fact checkers, Trump's various false claims, and Biden's digs at Trump. Watch each of them break down the debate in their own words ahead. One down, two to go, folks.
