This story is part of Elections 2020, CNET’s coverage of the run-up to voting in November.

The second US presidential debate, between Donald Trump and Joe Biden, was scheduled for Thursday, but Trump’s pulling out of the virtual showdown put the kibosh on that. Instead, the two candidates are holding their own town hall events, where they’re fielding questions posed to them by moderators and a live audience. The wrinkle? Trump’s and Biden’s town halls are airing at the same time: 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT, with Trump’s on NBC and Biden’s on ABC.

Over the past day, a new challenge has circulated on TikTok: Get your TV, computer, phone, tablet and any other device with a screen, and 샌즈카지노이벤트 watch Joe Biden’s town hall on every single one. Trump, the idea goes, is ratings obsessed, 메리트카지노추천 so it’ll be a humiliation if Biden’s town hall event outperforms the president’s.

The town halls are Thursday night and every view on a different platform or device counts toward ratings…just saying!!
