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).

With polls consistently showing a poor approval rating for President Joe Biden at below 40 percent, and a recent poll put Kamala Harris’ electability at only 28 percent, Democrats are in full panic mode.

Behind-the-scenes discussion of how Democrats could arrive at a third option for the next election is underway. Operatives are preparing for the possibility of a contested presidential primary in which other would-be nominees take on Ms. Harris, but that could be damaging for the party” reports the Telegraph.

Therefore, Democrats are allegedly whispering about a potential “nuclear option” that would call for current Vice President Harris to be nominated to the Supreme Court. The Telegraph writes that “while the scenario is highly improbable, and perhaps a reflection of a Washington rumor mill in overdrive, the fact it has come up at all shows the depths of the predicament the Biden administration currently finds itself in, amid rising inflation, a stalled domestic agenda, and foreign policy disasters.”

The theory in question would call for President Biden to nominate Harris to the Supreme Court in the event a seat opens in the next three years during his administration. Biden could then use “Section 2 of the 25thAmendment to nominate a more popular vice president”, adds the Telegraph.

Under Section 1 of the 25th Amendment, that new vice president could assume the presidency if Biden were to step down while president. They would then become the Democratic nominee in the 2024 presidential election. That same individual could also be the presumptive Democratic nominee in 2024 if Biden chooses not to run for re-election.

One piece of information that is wetting Democrats’ whistle is that current Supreme Court Justice Breyer has said he does not “want to stay on the Supreme Court until I die.”

The Telegraph notes that “the discussion over potential successors to Mr. Biden is highly unusual less than a year into an administration.”
