The bizarre scene was triggered by an unusual turn of events, featuring a dispute over the debate format precipitated by Trump's COVID-19 diagnosis.

It gave the frontrunner, Biden, a chance to speak at unimpeded length in a way he simply couldn't in the first, insult-heavy, idea-light showdown with Trump.

And, with just three weeks to go before the Nov. 3 election, it may have delivered a late-campaign blow to a central Trump message about the frailty of Biden's mental faculties.

The Democratic nominee was pressed on controversial topics like whether he would stop fossil-fuel fracking, or start expanding the Supreme Court.

Biden's answers: No and maybe.

He said he favours a shift to clean energy, but at a manageable pace, with hundreds of billions in incentives for green-infrastructure projects.

President Donald Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden met for the second and last time on a debate stage Thursday after a previously scheduled town hall debate was scrapped after the Republican incumbent became one of the millions of Americans to contract coronavirus.

Biden said some progressive proposals to eliminate carbon emissions in power generation by 2030 are not possible: "You can't get there," he said. "You're going to need to be able to transition." 

On the Supreme Court, the former vice-president hinted that he's been dangling the possibility of packing the bench with new justices as a leverage play.

He said he was withholding his answer until Republicans decide whether to nominate Amy Coney Barrett to the seat left vacant by the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and guaranteed a clearer policy before election day.

Biden noted that other options exist for altering the balance of the Supreme Court. (They include term limits, or rotating judges between courts).  

He said he's skeptical of simply adding new judges, as it would provoke continual battles over the court size.

"I have not been a fan of court-packing," he said. But in one of his lengthier answers, involving racial inequity, Biden rattled off a series of numbers and planks from his platform.

He proposed tripling the funding for poorer schools so that they might offer teachers $60,000 salaries; he alluded to a stat that the ratio of school psychologists to students should be lowered from one per 1,400 students, to one per 500; he talked about business-administration loans and a $15,000 first-time homebuyers' plan to help families accumulate wealth.

After that monologue, the town-hall moderator, ABC's George Stephanopoulos, turned to the young audience member who asked the question: "Did you hear what you needed to hear?" 

The young man said: "I think so." Then Biden kept talking, and talked some more with audience members after the show was over, milling about and taking questions off the air.

Biden promised not to hold grudges against political opponents, and promised to govern for all Americans.

"In politics, grudges don't work," Biden said, calling insults a recipe for inaction in trying to pass laws on Capitol Hill. "You can't get anywhere. Nothing happens."

Jim Carrey's Joe Biden Impression on 'SNL' Panned as 'Malarkey'

  Jim Carrey's Joe Biden Impression on 'SNL' Panned as 'Malarkey' Joe Biden might be winning over voters these days — or so it appears — but Jim Carrey winning over critics and Biden supporters with his over-the-top impression on "Saturday Night Live," not so much. In the final weeks before the election, Carrey has taken the job of impersonating the folksy Democratic candidate for president on "SNL," but many of the show's viewers don't think the former vice president and the manic comedian are a good fit. In the show's cold open the last three weeks, Carrey (and "SNL" writers) has lampooned Biden in such a way that has turned off many on social media.

Trump questioned about QAnon

Trump was on another network, NBC. 

The president cited fewer statistics, but did repeat a misinterpreted claim about the alleged danger of mask-wearing, which his own Centers For Disease Control said was wrong.

Trump was asked whether he would denounce the QAnon conspiracy theories. 

The moderator, Savannah Guthrie, asked: "It is this theory that Democrats are a Satanic pedophile ring. And that you are the saviour. Can you just once and for all, state that is completely not true?" 

Trump said he knew nothing about QAnon, then added: "I do know they are very much against pedophilia. They fight it very hard." When asked whether he denounced white supremacy, a matter of some controversy in the first debate, Trump replied with annoyance. 

"You always do this," he told Guthrie.

"I denounce white supremacy. OK? ... I denounce white supremacy. I have, for years."

He promised to have a plan soon for undocumented young migrants living in legal limbo and another to protect people with pre-existing medical conditions, if Obamacare gets struck down by the Supreme Court.

There is no plan yet.

Trump doesn't actually have a 2020 election platform. He says he'll just keep doing what he's been doing.

Asked at the end why he deserves four more years, he mentioned the low unemployment, strong economic growth before the pandemic, stronger borders and increased military spending.

"Because I've done a great job," he said.

'SNL': Maya Rudolph Moderates Last Debate With Jim Carrey and Alec Baldwin as a Drinking Game (Video) .
We're less than two weeks away from election day, so of course like every other episode this season the cold open of Saturday's "SNL" mined the 2020 presidential race for material with a parody of the final (thank goodness) debate between Democratic candidate Joe Biden and Republican incumbent Donald Trump. Watch that above. Naturally this meant the return of Alec Baldwin as Trump, joined by Jim Carrey who, in what is almost certainly a response to the widespread criticism last week, rolled out a total revamp of his Biden impression that worked pretty well.
