Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden told President Donald Trump to “shut up” during the first 2020 presidential debate on Tuesday after Trump repeatedly interrupted the vice president and ignored Fox News moderator Chris Wallace’s instructions not to interrupt.
Biden was attempting to answer whether he would pack the Supreme Court when Trump repeatedly interrupted to attack Biden.
“Will you shut up, man!” Biden lamented after dozens of interruptions.
