The Damage Report host John Iadarola is joined by Brett Erlich, host of TYT’s Happy Half Hour, to break down Friday’s top stories.
Last night’s debate saw Trump abdicate responsibility for the Coronavirus crisis and claim he’s “the least racist person in the room”. As initial polling shows Biden coming out on top, Trump searches Twitter for good reviews. Video of Rudy Giuliani’s appearance in the new Borat film drops, and it’s disturbing…obviously. Despite visible bruises and bandages, Mitch McConnell says there are “no concerns” regarding his health. It’s time to take out the trash! Find out who John, Brett and you (yes, you!) picked as the Garbage Person of the week.

"President Donald Trump seemed poised to take responsibility for his failure on Covid-19 at Thursday’s presidential debate — and then he didn’t.
“I take full responsibility,” Trump said. He immediately continued: “It’s not my fault that it came here. It’s China’s fault.”
It’s a big contradiction, but it’s emblematic of Trump’s approach to the coronavirus. Time and time again, Trump has tried to downplay the coronavirus and dodge responsibility, all while failing to embrace the kind of messaging and policy approach that experts recommend.
Asked about failures on testing early on, Trump said in March, “I don’t take responsibility at all.” Asked about the 1,000 Covid-19 deaths a day in the US at the time, Trump said in July, “It is what it is.”"
