Coffee Party USA celebrates National Coffee Day with a drinking game for the 2020 Presidential Debates

Coffee has bean the grounds of strong heated debate

Happy National Coffee Day! Today is also the first presidential debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. As an entertainment service to our readers, I’m recommending This Bipartisan Drinking Game Will Help You Survive Tonight’s Presidential Debate from Delish.

Enter: our entirely bipartisan drinking game. It includes items that happen again and again in debates and are often super cringey. Yes, the candidates are all fighting to talk, but do they have to bicker like that? And must they recount so many long, open-ended, irrelevant stories from their youths!? You get it.

Again, we kept this game extremely bipartisan, but if you’d like to add some items for things that really grate you—like Senator X’s habit of gesticulating wildly or Congresswoman Y’s tendency to bring the discussion back to the old days—that’s your prerogative. It’s your living room! Drink up!

Drink when a candidate:

Gets cut off
Raises their hand
Invokes a folksy phrase
Insults the opposite party
Speaks over someone
Rolls their eyes
Loses their train of thought
Says “when I’m President”

Finish your drink when a candidate:

Laughs at someone else onstage
Goes deep on taxes
Is grilled by a moderator
Mentions their opponent’s past

Take a shot when a candidate:

Speaks another language
References their childhood

This should be generic enough for anyone reading who is watching the debate. In fact, it’s generic enough that it can be used for any political debate this season, regardless of office, from President down to county commission or even city council if it has partisan candidates. I’m an environmentalist, so I like to reuse and recycle. I also like to reduce, so I’m not proposing another drinking game, at least not today.

Again, to see the image for the drinking game, click on This Bipartisan Drinking Game Will Help You Survive Tonight’s Presidential Debate to see the meme from Delish.  For drinks that go along with both candidates, click on my suggestions at my personal blog, Crazy Eddie’s Motie News, which also has the drinking game meme embedded.

  1. I didn’t see this game before the first Biden/Trump debate. It’s a good thing! I would have died of liver disease that night!!!!
