Joe Biden and Donald Trump were in the same room Thursday night for the first time in four years. The last time the two were in the same room was during the final debate of the 2020 cycle.

While the CNN debate was much less chaotic than four years ago, by many accounts, Joe Biden didn’t accomplish the one thing he needed to accomplish: Reassure the American people he’s not too old to be president. While Trump appeared more forceful, his responses were riddled with falsehoods and exaggerations. 

Jack O'Donnell, managing director at O'Donnell and Associates, and opinion columnist William F.B. O'Reilly, partner at The November Team, joined Capital Tonight anchor Susan Arbetter to discuss the first presidential debate of this cycle.
