What is it about?

The other day, I watched the TV presidential debate between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden. Despite of my poor listening skills in English, I heard the last of their 90-minute-long debate. When Biden was talking, Trump interrupted him too many times ignoring the host's inhibitions, so I didn't catch much more of what they said. I don't know whether that was Trump's strategy or not, though. The debate has seemed to acquire many bad reputations from a lot of commentators and politicians not only in America, but all over the world. Did you watch that debate?

1. the preposition "of" appears to be redundant in this context. consider removing it.
2. the comma appears to be redundant in this context. consider removing it.
No. I didn't unfortunately but I have heard a lot about it being discussed. Trump is known to be an impatient person.

Because of my poor understanding of English, apart from the substance of the debate, let me only talk about superficial things in it. When Trump debated with Hillary Clinton four years ago, he sipped water from a cup several times, but this time he didn't at all. In that respect, he seemed to have breadth of mind. All three of them, I mean both debaters and the host, wrinkled their foreheads and I was worried about whether 77-year-old Biden could stay on his feet during the debate, but I was relieved to see that he made it to the end.

1. use the article "a" when referring to something nonspecific or something that has not been mentioned before.
Oh, that's an interesting point that you have made. For a man his age, I think he did a wonderful job just standing there.

Yes, I think he did to some extent. Biden insulted Trump with bad words such as "a clown," "a liar" and "the worst president America has ever had," but he was relatively logical in the way he explained his thoughts, saying "Number one is... Number two is..." and he apparently tried to speak towards a TV camera in consideration of viewers. Anyway I was aware of the deep divisions in America through their mud wrestle. I also look forward to the coming vice presidential debate.

1. introductory words are always followed by a comma.
  • election(選挙)
  • resignation(辞任)
  • government(政府、政治)
  • governor(州知事)
  • mayor(市長、町長)
  • I can't trust the government anymore.(もう政府のことが信頼できません。)

  • Who do you think our next mayor will be?(次の州知事は誰になると思いますか。)
