The first Presidential Debate is coming up at the end of the month, but we’ve already seen one high-ranking Democrat say that debates shouldn’t happen.
The Speaker of the House, Rep. Nancy Pelosi(D-CA), has publicly stated that Joe Biden should refuse to debate President Trump.
The New York Times has published an opinion piece recently titled, “Let’s Scrap The Presidential Debates.”
Although Joe has not said that he would refuse to debate Trump (yet), we’ve seen a few Democrats pushing the idea that the debates should be canceled because “Trump lies and shouldn’t be taken seriously,” or “there’s a global pandemic!”
All it takes is one slightly plausible (read: lame) excuse that they can cling to and the debates will be scrapped. They probably have a team working on it right now.
Biden has called for live “fact-checking” during the debates which is an interesting strategy for a guy that launched his campaign on the Charlottesville “Fine People” Hoax. But I have a strange feeling that the Media(D) will have Joe’s back.
The first debate is scheduled for September 29 in Cleveland, OH, and will be moderated by Chris Wallace of Fox News.
That doesn’t give Joe Biden a whole lot of time to prepare to debate Trump who can win a debate with one zinger like this absolute gem:
How does Joe prepare against that?
Joe has said that he’s looking forward to debating Trump.
Sure he is.
Biden has always been a gaffe machine, but lately, it’s been something more than that.
His performance in the Democratic debates was absolutely awful and certainly not like the firey guy we saw against Paul Ryan in 2012.
By its very nature, a debate can’t be scripted, and even if it was scripted, Joe seems to be having trouble reading from notes.
Check out that video of Biden vs Ryan and then watch this dumpster fire:
How is this not elder abuse?!
We all know that Biden only won because there was a backroom deal with the also-rans so that he could win against Bernie.
Frankly, those also-rans had to make nice with Biden for the sake of party unity.
They were pretty brutal to him during the debates.
Perhaps a 2012 Biden might have had a remote chance of surviving a debate with Donald J. Trump with some of his dignity intact but in 2020…?
If I was on Team Biden, I’d be pushing to not have a debate at all and cite the pandemic as the reason.
Buckle up, it’s going to be a bumpy ride this election cycle!
