Oh boy, this debate is going to be… something. No matter how much of a chaotic nightmare tonight may turn out to be (there’s a 95-percent chance it will), there’s always something fun to get out of an event that America views together!

A trend that’s emerged in recent elections is assembling rules for a drinking game whenever there’s some big, televised political event. Already, many sites have published their drinking games for tonight’s debate with their own sets of rules. A dilemma I’ve come across is that there are too many rules that different people have come up with—which rules make for the best drinking game?!

Sara A. Carter asked you all on Twitter for some of your own drinking-game suggestions. So, I’ve compiled some of your best suggestions and some of the better rules across the internet that people have come up with to save all of you the time and effort in selecting your perfect drinking game.

I’ve organized this list into what to take a shot for, what to take a sip of any other drink for, and what to chug your drink for. Feel free to choose whichever of these rules you and your friends want to follow!

As a reminder, please drink only if you are of the legal drinking age and do so responsibly!

And with all that being said, let’s get into the debate spirit! (You see what I did there?)

Take a sip whenever…

  • A candidate speaks past their time limit
  • Either candidate loses their place mid-sentence and completely changes direction
  • Trump says: “Radical Left”
  • Biden starts a sentence with: “look…”
  • Trump says: “Jina” (China)
  • Biden says: “Uuuuhhhh…”

Take a shot whenever…

  • Biden says: “C’mon, man!”
  • Trump says: “Fake news”
  • Biden says: “folks”
  • Trump says: “WRONG” (pronounced as “rawng”)
  • Biden says: “Y’know, the thing…”
  • Moderator Chris Wallace has to interrupt one of the candidates
  • Trump mentions Hunter Biden
  • BONUS: Two shots when Trump says: “China Virus”

Chug your drink whenever…

  • A candidate spars with Chris Wallace
  • The candidates get into a yelling match
  • The crowd erupts into a deafening noise

I hope you have fun with these suggestions!

No matter who you plan to vote for, the presidential debates serve as a common experience that millions of Americans share together every four years. Amidst the most divisive election that we have seen in ages (certainly in my 23 years on this planet), it’s events like these and the traditions we’ve created to go along with them that prove we can find even the slightest bit of unity in the most contentious of places.

The debate will be held in Cleveland, Ohio, and is scheduled to air from 9 to 10:30 pm (Eastern Standard Time).

BREAKING: Clinton herself ‘agreed’ to leak Trump-Russia allegations to press

Remember this 2016 post from Hillary herself just days away from the election? During Friday’s trial of her former attorney Michael Sussmann, some juicy details behind this vey post have emerged.

“Robby Mook, Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign manager, said that Clinton ‘agreed’ to leak allegations that the Trump Organization had a secret communications channel with Russia’s Alfa Bank to the media during his Friday testimony” reports National Review.

The media “report” Hillary tweeted about above, was spoon-fed to them with her blessing. Mook also revealed the “purpose” for the campaign to leak it to the press was to have a reporter “run it down” further and “vet it out.”

As for Mrs. Clinton’s involvement, Mook added that he “discussed it with Hillary as well” after which, “she agreed to” their decision to turn the loose gossip over to the press.

She was then able to use Slate’s “reporting” to discuss the fake collusion publicly. Clinton then tweeted the campaign’s press release on the “statement from Jake Sullivan on New Report Exposing Trump’s Secret Line of Communication to Russia.”

FBI agent James Baker, the then-agent who Sussmann took the Alfa Bank information to, testified in the trial Wednesday. He said he was “100 percent confident” that Sussmann said he wasn’t representing a client when they met.

A text message from Sussmann to Baker from the day prior reads: “Jim — it’s Michael Sussmann. I have something time-sensitive (and sensitive) I need to discuss. Do you have availability for a short meeting tomorrow? I’m coming on my own — not on behalf of a client or company — want to help the Bureau. Thanks.”

National Review reports of the case:

The former FBI general counsel said that he would have treated the meeting and subsequent investigation differently had he known Sussmann was coming forward on behalf of the Clinton campaign.

 The evidence that Sussmann delivered to Baker came in the form of Domain Name System (DNS) data that allegedly showed frequent communications between servers associated with the Trump Organization and Russia’s Alfa Bank. The data was provided to Sussmann by Joffe, an executive at the cybersecurity firm Neustar, which was also being represented by Sussmann as part of his role as a partner at the Perkins Coie law firm.

FBI agent Scott Hellman testified Tuesday that he was immediately skeptical of the data and accompanying analysis that suggested illicit communications between the Trump Organization and Alfa Bank. In fact, the quality of the analysis was so poor, that Hellman questioned whether its source had a “mental disability” in a private chat with FBI colleagues, obtained by prosecutors.

Opposition research firm Fusion GPS, which Perkins Coie hired to work on behalf of the Clinton campaign, translated the DNS data into laymen’s terms and pitched it to various reporters, including Franklin Foer, a writer for Slate.

 “We certainly hoped that he would publish an article,” former Fusion GPS employee Lauren Seago testified.

Foer obliged them, touting the claims in an article published on October 31, 2016, a little over a week before Election Day.
