by Andrew Romano, October 23, 2020
….The second standout moment was when Welker asked Biden and Trump about “the talk” — that is, if they understand why Black and brown families have to prepare their children for potentially hostile encounters with police because of the color of their skin.
Biden responded by referring to his social-worker daughter, who has studied the subject.
“I do [understand],” Biden said. “I never had to tell my daughter, if she’s pulled over: Put both hands on top of the wheel and don't reach for the glove box, because someone may shoot you. But a Black parent, no matter how wealthy or how poor they are, has to teach their child: Don’t have a hoodie on when you go across the street. Making sure that if you get pulled over, just ‘Yes, sir, no sir,’ hands on top of the wheel.”
Trump also said he understood, then immediately switched gears.
“Nobody has done more for the Black community than Donald Trump,” the president claimed. “If you look, with the exception of Abraham Lincoln — possible exception — but the exception of Abraham Lincoln, nobody has done what I’ve done."...

Biden sarcastically called Trump “Abraham Lincoln here.” The president didn’t get it and straightened him out at the presidential debate.

"In case Americans needed any clarification, Donald Trump declared in the final presidential debate Thursday night that he does not claim to actually be Abraham Lincoln.
Trump cleared that up in response to a zinger from Democratic rival Joe Biden, which apparently went right over the president’s head.
Trump once again boasted that “nobody has done more for the Black community than Donald Trump ... with the exception of Abraham Lincoln.” He also shockingly claimed that he was the “least racist person in this room” (which included Kristen Welker, the first black moderator at a presidential debate since 1992).
Biden scoffed: “Abraham Lincoln over here is one of the most racist presidents we’ve had in modern history. He pours fuel on every single racist fire. Every single one.”
Trump was confused. “You made a reference to Abraham Lincoln here,” the president responded. “Where did that come in?”
“You said you’re Abraham Lincoln,” Biden quipped again.
That’s when Trump felt compelled to clear things up: “No, I didn’t say I’m Abraham Lincoln. I said, ‘Not since Abraham Lincoln has anybody done what I’ve done for the Black community.’”
Biden sarcastically refers to Trump as "Abraham Lincoln," and Trump gets confused by it".

ADDITIONAL SELECTED TWEETS
All of these tweets were published either late Oct. 22, 2020 or early Oct. 23, 2020.
These excerpts of these tweets are given in no particular order and are numbered for referencing purposes only.
I've added some explanatory notes for a few of these tweets.
Trump compared himself to Abraham Lincoln and then proceeded to attack Black Lives Matter #Debates2020
Even when invited by the moderator to speak directly to racial-minority families, President Trump could talk only about himself—boast that he had done more for African Americans than all previous presidents except maybe Abraham Lincoln, maybe.
US President Donald Trump has said that only Abraham Lincoln, who abolished slavery, has "possibly" done more for black Americans than him.
At one point in the debate, Joe Biden jokingly referred to Trump as "Abraham Lincoln here."
Except Trump didn’t get the joke.
After Biden finished his response Trump clarified he's not actually Abraham Lincoln. https://trib.al/fQPJgG5 #Debates2020

Like they've never heard a dis before (7 emojis of Rolling on the floor laughing]
A "diss" is an African American Vernacular English term for an insult. Other tweets referred that comment from Democratic Presidential Nominee Joe Biden as a "joke", a "retort", and "zinger", among other terms.

I wish Biden would've finished it and told he was being sarcastic when he called him Abe Lincoln and that it's an insult to humanity that he even mentioned himself in the same breath as Abe Lincoln.
