    The dates and venues have been announced for the 2016 Presidential debates between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. The date for the Vice Presidential debate between Tim Kaine and Mike Pence has also been announced. Note the broadcast times and channels are identical for the Presidential debates and the Vice Presidential debate.

    Tickets – Tickets for each debate are controlled by the hosting university and are extremely limited since the debates are primarily produced for television. The majority of tickets are distributed to host university students and faculty through a lottery system. See this page for all available ticketing details.

    Live Streaming – All the major news networks will offer a free live stream as will YouTube and Twitter. Live stream links will be posted the day of the debate.

    TV Channels – Each debate will be broadcast live on C-SPAN, ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC, as well as all cable news channels including CNN, Fox News and MSNBC among others.

    Full Videos – Click the “Watch Full Video Link” below on each debate to watch the entire debate video.

    Monday, September 26, 2016
    First presidential debate
    Moderator: Lester Holt, Anchor, NBC Nightly News
    Location: Hofstra University, Hempstead, NY

    The first debate will be divided into six time segments of approximately 15 minutes each on major topics to be selected by the moderator and announced at least one week before the debate. The moderator will open each segment with a question, after which each candidate will have two minutes to respond. Candidates will then have an opportunity to respond to each other. The moderator will use the balance of the time in the segment for a deeper discussion of the topic.

    *Wright State University in Ohio has withdrawn from holding the First Presidential debate due to budget issues. Hofstra University will step in to host the first Clinton/Trump debate.

    I'm looking forward to the debates.
    Curious to see if it brings out a different Trump than we saw in the primary debates. I don't think he can do what he did there and repeat success in this venue.

    I do enjoy that he's already complaining about the moderator.
    Take his friendly chat Monday night with Fox's Bill O'Reilly, who asked Trump about the scheduled moderators of his debates with Hillary Clinton. If you missed it, here's a portion of the transcript courtesy of The Washington Post when they talked about the journalists who will be asking the questions, including Lester Holt of NBC:

    "TRUMP: And by the way, Lester is a Democrat.
    "O'REILLY: I didn't know that.
    "TRUMP: Look, it's a phony system. Lester is a Democrat. I mean, they are all Democrats. Okay? It's a very unfair system."
    Well, we checked that part about NBC's Lester Holt, who will moderate the first debate on Sept. 26.

    In fact, as Time magazine also points out, Holt has been a registered Republican in the state of New York since 2003.

    It's funny because someone was talking about this on one of the political shows and asking about what kind of preparation Trump would do and the answer from an "insider" was that he would not do any preparation.....he feels he is already prepared

    that could be a big mistake

    but even that, just winning a debate does not mean winning votes. I think Hillary has much much more to lose in this arena than Trump has and he knows it. Even today, women walk a tricky line between being assertive and being seen as a harpy and CLintons speech style doesn't help her.

    Yeah, it could bite him in the ass. Speaking of ass and preparation.....

    I see Hillary as the Hemorrhoid, and Trump as the, "Preparation H". Just wanted to throw that out there for unknown reasons.

    Leave it to NPR to skew reality. When you watch the video it shows you that things didn't really go down how they reported it.

    Fast forward to the 10:30 mark

     "He has a swaggering retro machismo that will give hives to the Steinem cabal" -Camille Paglia on Donald Trump

    "But, fucking with Brook is like fucking with hot shit on and ax handle. You just don't get a grip"-track5

    "Make way for the bad guy"- Tony Montana

    'This hamburger don't need no helper"- David Lee Roth

    "I wish Bon Jovi would've given me a call before he recorded all of his hits, because the lyrics would've been smarter, the melodies would've been much more smashing, and they would've sold a lot fewer records." -David Lee Roth

    "My beef is people thinking Bon Jovi is good cuz they sold lots of records to housewives." -tango

    "But being number one doesn’t really mean jack fuck all. We sold twice as many records as other records that year (1984) that landed in the Number One position." ~Eddie Van Halen

    The video shows the quote is 100% accurate. Keep watching Trump goes on to say "They're gaming the refs" in regards to debate #2. Because those moderators are from CNN.

    If it is gamed in any fashion, it is gamed to favor Trump. Registered republican for debate #1 and a Fox commentator for debate #3.
    If you're keeping score at home, that's 2 debates to 1 where the moderators should favor the GOP candidate.
    Can you believe how much Clinton is whining about that?

    Yeeeeah, did you watch the video? It doesn't really back up what NPR was trying to imply. And if you think that Lester Holt of NBC is going to run defense for Trump during the debates ...don't hold your breath.

    I won't even be able to watch. It'll be the most obnoxious, cringe-worthy TV in the history of TV. It's going to be so embarrassing.

    It will make me mad, but I will watch the debates. If it was up to me, I would not ask Hillary ONE SINGLE POLICY question. Every question would be "Why did you lie about your emails?" "Why did you lie about Bosnian sniper fire?" "Why did you lie about being named after Sir. Hillary?" "Why did you lie about Whitewater?" etc etc.

    so now Trump is threatening to bing Gennifer FLowers to the debate which only underlines for me how he just doesn't get the importance of this debate or the seriousness of the position he is seeking.

    I would be more impressed with him if he brought Gary Johnson. That's a voice that should be heard at these debates...not Gennifer Flowers

    This debate has the potential to show the world just how far this country has regressed. All we need is Vince McMann to moderate .
