Moderator Chris Wallace selects topics for first Trump-Biden presidential debate – Fox News

The brutal Supreme Court nomination battle, the worst pandemic to strike the globe in a century, a national economy flattened by the coronavirus, and the protests and violence that have flared in cities across the nation this summer will be some of the major topics Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and President Trump will debate next week as they face off for the first time in the 2020 general election.

The nonpartisan Commission on Presidential Debates on Tuesday announced the issues that the moderator of the first debate – “Fox News Sunday” anchor Chris Wallace – has selected as topics for the showdown.

Wallace also included the Biden and Trump records and the integrity of the election – another crucial issue considering the president for months has railed against expanded voting by mail amid the pandemic, repeatedly charging that it would lead to a “rigged election.”

The nonpartisan commission – which has organized and conducted the presidential and vice presidential general election debates for more than three decades – cautioned that the topics listed are “subject to possible changes because of news developments.”

Debate topics

    The Trump and Biden Records

    The Supreme Court

    Covid-19

    The Economy

    Race and Violence in our Cities

    The Integrity of the Election

    ​​​​​

The first debate between the former vice president and the GOP incumbent in the White House will take place Tuesday, Sept. 29, at Case Western University and the Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio. The format for the first showdown calls for six 15-minute long segments – with each segment dedicated to a particular topic.

The commission explained that topics were “announced in advance in order to encourage deep discussion of the leading issues facing the country.”

Biden and Trump will debate twice more – on Oct. 15 in Nashville, Tenn., and Oct. 22 in Miami, Fla. Democratic vice presidential nominee Sen. Kamala Harris of California and Vice President Mike Pence will debate once – in Salt Lake City, Utah, on Oct. 7.

All four showdowns will start at 9 pm ET and will run for 90 minutes without any commercial interruption

Chris D’Elia denies numerous allegations of sexually harassing underage girls – EW.com

Comedian Chris D’Elia has responded to multiple allegations of sexual misconduct that emerged on Twitter Tuesday night. Numerous women accused D’Elia of “grooming,” sexually harassing, and soliciting nude photos from them when they were teenagers, some claiming they were as young as 16 at the time of the alleged incident.

“I know I have said and done things that might have offended people during my career, but I have never knowingly pursued any underage women at any point,” D’Elia told TMZ. “All of my relationships have been both legal and consensual and I have never met or exchanged any inappropriate photos with the people who have tweeted about me. That being said, I really am truly sorry. I was a dumb guy who ABSOLUTELY let myself get caught up in my lifestyle. That’s MY fault. I own it. I’ve been reflecting on this for some time now and I promise I will continue to do better.”A representative for D’Elia declined to comment. Other representatives did not immediately respond to EW’s request for comment.A Twitter thread by user @SheRatesDogs has compiled allegations from more than a dozen women, ranging from accusations of harassment and attempts to solicit nude photos to at least one second-hand allegation of sexual assault. Most say D’Elia reached out to them through social media and attempted to obtain their phone numbers.

D’Elia is known for his stand-up comedy but has also had several acting roles, most recently on Netflix’s You, on which he played a comedian who sexually abuses underage girls.

Chris Paul confirms report of Steph Curry, Klay Thompson trade offer for him in 2011 – ClutchPoints

NBA veteran point guard Chris Paul recently went on an Uninterrupted video interview, and one of the matters he discussed was the botched trade that would have sent him to the Golden State Warriors in 2011.

Apparently, the Dubs were willing to send both Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson to the New Orleans Pelicans (then Hornets) in exchange for Paul. The 10-time NBA All-Star confirmed the story and explained why he ultimately rejected the deal.

That’s how much value Chris Paul had at that time. Moreover, this was before the Splash Brothers era, which explains why the Warriors were willing to give up both Curry and Thompson. What could have been.

According to Paul, his decision at that time stemmed from his unwillingness to move to San Francisco. Then again, the NBA floor general ended up with the Los Angeles Clippers that same summer, which is just in the same state as the Bay Area.

As Paul implied, he has now learned to love the city of L.A., having been living there for almost a decade now. He did make a move to the Thunder in the summer of 2019, but it is obvious that the City of Angels still holds a special place in his heart.

Paul was having an excellent season with the Thunder prior to the NBA suspension, averaging 17.7 points, 4.9 rebounds, 6.8 assists and 1.6 steals per contest. He also helped the team to an impressive record in the West, as OKC emerged as one of the pleasant surprises of the season.
