On Thursday, President Donald Trump answered questions at a town hall on NBC, while Joe Biden took questions at a town hall on ABC that was originally meant to be a full presidential debate before Trump pulled out of it.
Commenters on social media ridiculed the president's performance, with many agreeing the night was a disaster for him.
