Biden Struggled, Trump Often Lied, CNN Didn't Fact-Check

Rewind 15 seconds
Fast Forward 15 seconds
President Biden fumbled in the CNN Presidential Debate, offering often rambling answers in a hoarse and quiet voice. Donald Trump, who also rambled, painted a characteristically dark vision of the country and repeatedly lied about his and Biden's records — which went largely unchallenged by CNN's moderators.

This episode: voting correspondent Ashley Lopez, campaign reporter Stephen Fowler, and senior national political correspondent Mara Liasson.
