'SNL' Takes On Switching Between Trump, Biden Town Halls


"Saturday Night Live" takes on both President Trump and Joe Biden's recent town halls. Biden is questioned on his Covid-19 response and Trump refuses to condemn white supremacy.

Krystal Ball and Saagar Enjeti react to the dueling presidential town halls on NBC and ABC. They also discuss the differing interview styles of George Stephanopoulos and Savannah Guthrie.
President Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden appeared at separate town halls on Oct. 15, the night that was supposed to be their second debate.
The dueling presidential town halls last night could not have had more different tones. On NBC, ‘Today' show host Savannah Gutherie grilled President Trump, and challenged him on sharing debunked conspiracy theories online. "You are not somebody's crazy uncle who can tweet whatever," she said. On ABC, Joe Biden drew higher ratings with his George Stephanopolous-moderated town hall, which felt more like a fireside chat.
The Fix's Natalie Jennings analyzes the separate town halls held by President Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on Oct. 15.
