Over recent weeks, Democrats in the media have urged Biden not to attend the presidential debates. Even Nancy Pelosi said Biden should skip out on something so important to our democratic tradition. While Biden’s campaign has said he would debate Trump, there has been little guarantee he’d show. So now, Trump’s campaign is demanding Biden make it clear, in writing.
Let’s face it, Joe Biden is going to crumble in the debates. Just look at any appearance he’s made in the last six months (when he’s bothered to make an appearance). The man can barely finish a sentence. He appears drowsy and often confused. He struggles to read pre-written comments. And more often than not, he loses his temper at the drop of the hat.
Many of these are signs of mental decline, particularly dementia. Some have even said much of his behavior—even when lucid—suggests he’s taking strong medication just to keep it going.
A recent clip went viral, showing the man struggling to say something about COVID. Millions of people watched the Democrat derail from a simple statement.
And that’s with a speech written out for him that he could rehearse! What is he going to do when he has to answer questions, off the cuff, while fending off Trump?
It’s not a surprise that many Democrats want to call off the debates. But honestly, that will only make it worse. But the Trump campaign is not letting up. They are demanding confirmation that Biden will attend, in writing.
President Trump’s campaign on Monday requested “written confirmation” from Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden that he will debate Trump before the election.
Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani, writing on behalf of the campaign, cited House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s call last week for Biden to skip the debates. Biden quickly rejected that idea.
“While he may verbally give vague assertions of his intentions, there is no way of knowing what his handlers truly have planned for him,” Giuliani, the former New York mayor, wrote in a letter to the Commission on Presidential Debates. [Source: New York Post]
Trump’s campaign has accused Biden of making only “vague assertions” that he will attend the debates. They want it in writing that Biden won’t chicken out at the last second.
It would be very easy for him to do so. His campaign could try to blame it on COVID, but with cases and deaths plummeting—and with plenty of measures being taken—that is a weak excuse. Many Democrats claim Biden shouldn’t debate Trump because Trump’s such a big dishonest meaning.
Seriously? He shouldn’t debate Trump because Trump might lie? Isn’t the point of a debate to disprove your opponent? Democrats are admitting Biden doesn’t have what it takes to take on Trump. Because he doesn’t.
This move by Trump’s campaign is brilliant. Either the Biden campaign will refuse to provide written confirmation, which would make them look bad. Or they provide the confirmation only to back out later, making them look even worse.
Or they can drop out of the debates right now, giving Trump yet another big piece of ammunition to go after Biden. Joe can’t drop out unless he wants Trump to air ads suggesting Biden is scared of facing him. But if Biden does debate Trump—it will be a disaster.
Either way, Biden and the Democrats are in deep doo-doo.
I’m betting they wish they could roll back the clock right about now, so they could pick any other candidate other than Biden!
