Democrats Lobby Biden Not To Debate Trump

Posted on Aug 5, 2020

Joe Biden’s cognitive decline is starting to worry Democrats and media elites. 

How do we know? These figures are actively lobbying for Biden NOT to debate President Trump.

I worry about Joe Biden debating Donald Trump. He should do it only under two conditions. Otherwise, he’s giving Trump unfair advantages…

Only if leading into the debate, American voters have a clear picture of Trump’s tax returns alongside Biden’s, and only if, coming out of the debate, they have a clear picture of who was telling the truth and who was not, will they be able to make a fair judgment between the two candidates.

That kind of debate and only that kind of debate would be worthy of voters’ consideration and Biden’s participation.

Otherwise, Joe, stay in your basement.

Nervous managers of the scheduled 2020 presidential debates are shuffling the logistics and locations to deal with the threat of the coronavirus. But here’s a better idea: Scrap them altogether. And not for health reasons.

The debates have never made sense as a test for presidential leadership.

Whatever you do, don’t debate Trump. Trump has now made more than 20,000 misleading or false statements according to the Washington Post. It’s a fool’s errand to enter the ring with someone who can’t follow the rules or the truth. Biden will undoubtedly take heat from Republicans and the media for skipping the debates. But it’s worth the risk as trying to debate someone incapable of telling the truth is an impossible contest to win.

Biden shouldn’t feel obligated to throw Trump a lifeline by granting him any debates at all. This is not a normal presidential election and Trump is not a legitimate candidate.

Democrats are running scared. They don’t trust the former Vice President to be alone on a stage with President Trump without his handlers being able to save him from embarrassing himself of live television.

It is difficult to see how Joe Biden as president would be capable of engaging in similar one-on-one discussions with foreign leaders to defend U.S. interests. But a decision by Biden to skip the debates would confirm his mental incapacity and suggest a Biden presidency would be the beginning of a dangerous U.S. leadership vacuum on the world stage, a vacuum America’s enemies and adversaries are eagerly looking forward to exploiting.

With this in mind, the presidential debates are especially important this year. Joe Biden needs to disprove reports about his mental fitness to the American people and the world and prove he is up to the job.

Efforts by Biden supporters to convince him to skip the debates not only cynically undermine the ability of American voters to make an informed choice this November, but it will also be taken as a dangerous signal by our enemies and adversaries.

They will see it as a sign to prepare for a possible Democratic presidency of weakness and confusion that will enable them to do major and irreversible damage to America’s security and its global leadership.
