Sequence of events:
1: ABC agrees to host a two-candidate town hall type “debate”
2: The group who handles the details decides that it should be done remotely because Trump’s quite likely still infective.
3: Trump backs out
4: Biden agrees to go on solo.
5: NBC tries a ratings heist by inviting Trump to hold a TV rally (talk about soft balls!)
6: Biden “wins” according to almost every survey.
7: Right wing cartoonists attempt to make it look as though ABC isn’t being fair… and that Biden, therefore did poorly.
