Many wondered if the unusual step wasn’t taken to implicitly help Joe Biden.
They’re completely avoiding China and the Middle East.
And when have they ever posted the topics?
This is all being done for Biden’s benefit. https://t.co/M3XlP6c2Q8

I thought the same thing… Have they always announced the topics ahead of time? I can’t remember ever hearing them before…

But even more curious was moderator Chris Wallace’s inclusion of the subject of climate change in the debate when it was not on that previously released list. As well as was the timing of Wallace’s introduction of the subject into the discussion.
President Trump had raised the subject of former VP Biden’s son Hunter reportedly receiving a mysterious $3.5 million payment from the mayor of Moscow, Russia, in February 2014 allegedly for “consultancy” work. That finding was revealed last week in a report published by the U.S. Senate.
Immediately after the President raised that question, VP Biden appeared to become agitated at the question and began to lose his temper. Wallace then quickly interrupts and says, “I would like to talk about climate change.”
Without skipping a beat, Biden responds, “So would I.”
We reported yesterday on author Dr. Jerome Corsi alleging that he had been told Biden was given last night’s debate questions in advance by Wallace. Wallace has denied that claim.
