Biden tops Trump for town hall television ratings

Biden tops Trump for town hall television ratings”

CNN reported Friday that Biden's town hall on ABC averaged 14.1 million viewers on Thursday night, easily surpassing the Nielsen ratings for President Trump's town hall on NBC.

Concha counted 43 questions from Guthrie, whom he called Trump's "sparring partner", compared to the 10 questions from the audience, "the whole reason we were having this event", he told "Fox & Friends". His team was talking all kinds of trash in the run-up to Thursday's event, including his campaign's senior advisor Jason Miller, who said, "We're gonna have a much bigger audience than Joe".

Biden campaigned in MI on Friday, where he gave remarks on affordable healthcare and attended a drive-in voter mobilization event.

When asked again whether he had taken a test in adhering to the rules laid down by the Presidential Debating Committee, Trump said, "Maybe I did and I took a test the day before". Guthrie had been widely criticized for participating in the Town Hall when it was first announced, but was receiving kudos by its end for grilling Trump on his lies and forcing him to answer questions he clearly wasn't willing to answer.

Trump does not remember if he took the Corona test

Adding insult to injury, Biden's town hall beat Trump and his #noddinglady in YouTube views as well.

But The Post's exposé didn't come up once during the Democratic presidential candidate's 90-minute ABC News town hall Thursday night.

To say that Trump is obsessed with ratings is an understatement. At one point, Trump refused to denounce the QAnon conspiracy - whose followers have been linked to violent acts in the past.

"I'm open to considering what happens from that point on (Judge Amy Coney Barrett's confirmation vote)", Biden said.
