The sporting world has reacted to the chaotic Presidential debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden on Wednesday (AEST) and the overwhelming message was clear: vote.
President Trump and Biden entered into a slinging-match, which was described as “out of control” and “comedic”.
The pair traded barbs and mediator Chris Wallace did his best to control the debate, despite on multiple occasions both Trump and Biden completely ignoring him.
Many quickly complained about both Biden and Trump.
Some sport stars even called for Fox News anchor Chris Wallace to have control to cut off the mic of either who cut in.
NBA star Kyle Lowry praised Wallace for doing his best to control the debate and “being an adult”.
This debate is out of control!! Why have a moderator when he can’t even control it!— Georges Niang (@GeorgesNiang20) September 30, 2020

Gotta have power to cut the mics in the Presidential debates— Kevin Love (@kevinlove) September 30, 2020
Someone send Chris Wallace as many bottles of wine he can drink ( if he drinks ) after this one!! Put it on my tab!! Thank you Chris for being an adult!!— Kyle Lowry (@Klow7) September 30, 2020
....someone please explain to me why they don’t mute the microphone of the candidate who isn’t supposed to be speaking, especially when the moderator is continuously forgetting to actually moderate???— Brianna Turner (@_Breezy_Briii) September 30, 2020
One of the eye-opening moments from the first debate was when President Trump failed to condemn white supremacy when asked directly, too — something that stunned plenty.
Donald Trump still couldn’t deny white supremacy. By the way Trump told the Proud Boys to STAND BY.— Jemele Hill (@jemelehill) September 30, 2020
Stand back and stand by??????????? No further questions your honor! #vote— Stephen Curry (@StephenCurry30) September 30, 2020

LeBron James led the overwhelming message, however, for US citizens to get out and vote.
