  • Analysis

Trump was responsible for more than three-fourths of the interruptions Tuesday night. And to be clear, it was against the rules to interrupt.

  • Analysis

Trump was given an easy two minutes — perhaps the easiest two minutes of the debate — to talk about those accomplishments, and he stumbled.

  • Analysis

Trump tried to goad Biden into slip-ups in the first presidential debate, and the whole thing was awful to watch.
