State College Mom Appears On ABC's Joe Biden Town Hall

The president squared off against the esteemed journalist on Thursday night (local time) as she grilled him over white supremacy, his handling of the coronavirus pandemic and QAnon. "I denounce white supremacy, OK?"

Under the intense questioning today, Trump told Guthrie "we should be on the same side".

On Thursday morning, more than 100 content creators and primetime stars sent a letter to NBC and Comcast officials urging them to switch the time of the town hall, while figures like legendary investigative reporter Carl Bernstein said that the network was getting played by the Trump campaign.

"I know nothing about it", Trump said. I promise you there is no reason to suggest that there should be any right denied to your daughter that your other daughter has the right to be and do. "You didn't ask Joe Biden if he denounces Antifa", the United States president responded.

Trump said that all he knew about the conspiracy theory is that "they are very much against pedophilia" and agree with that.

The movement saw a surge of interest following the election of President Trump.

Trump: That was an opinion of somebody and that was a retweet.

The town halls offered a different format for the two candidates to present themselves to voters after the pair held a chaotic and combative first debate last month.

Trump insisted that he's never heard of it, and dodged Guthrie's follow-up questions - except to say sarcastically say that she's "cute".

"It turns out Trump has made a decision to double down on his unhinged first debate performance - even without Biden on stage", New Yorker staff writer Susan Glasser tweeted.

Meanwhile, in the blue corner, Biden was more passive and calm, charming the audience. Guthrie responded that she knew of that study, and that's not what it says.

Guthrie opened her town hall, held at an outdoor venue in Miami, by questioning him repeatedly about when he last tested negative for COVID-19 before testing positive on October 1.

"Why is Savannah Guthrie debating President Trump?". We aired a town hall with Vice President Biden on October 5 at 8pm. "The media is garbage these days", one woman wrote.
