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).

Federal Reserve Economist on hidden camera: ‘we don’t want Trump to be in the government’

Hidden Camera captures Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve talking about Jerome Powell’s legacy as “somebody who held the line against like, Trump.” According to hidden camera footage of Aurel Hizmo, principal economist at the Federal Reserve, the U.S. agency could have fixed inflation a while ago but refused to do so for fear of hurting President Joe Biden’s re-election efforts.

Hizmo told an undercover reporter that the Fed stopped raising the rates to tackle inflation because it could cause a recession that would likely end Biden’s 2024 campaign.

The influential agency responsible for maintaining a stable monetary system appears to not just be establishing interest rates, but to be setting policies for desired social outcomes. “Under Powell, the Fed has changed to think about equity issues, like racial issues, think about wealth inequality as part of the mandate, as part of the things we are following. Think about climate change.” Aurel Hizmo, Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve, who prior to working at the Fed was an Assistant Professor helps write speeches for Federal Reserve Board Chair Jerome Powell for the Federal Open Market Committee.

Hizmo says “Trump is just a crazy person” and conservatives are “dumb” as he describes to OMG’s American Swiper Citizen Journalist a politicized Federal Reserve Board where Powell has promoted ESG issues like climate change and “wants to be remembered in history” “as a savior.” But shhh…don’t tell anyone because Hizmo says: “I’m just really worried that I’m saying stuff that’s classified…It’s all classified.”
