In This Episode

Donald Trump and Joe Biden met in the first head-to-head debate of the campaign yesterday evening.

Biden lambasted the President as a ‘clown’, while Trump ruthlessly attacked the Democratic challenger’s family, ignoring the tragic death of his son, Beau. Freddy Gray speaks to Kate Andrews about whether the debate could possibly have been any worse.
