Well, the fake news didn’t even bother to hide its objective at all this time. In an astonishingly transparent headline, “Let’s Scrap the Presidential Debates,” the ever-tolerant, open-minded article proceeds to argue for exactly that. The author, Elizabeth Drew, essentially wastes an entire editorial section by discussing how suddenly unfair presidential debates are, and she adds nothing new to the conversation.
“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. In fact, one could argue that they reward precisely the opposite of what we want in a president. When we were serious about the presidency, we wanted intelligence, thoughtfulness, knowledge, empathy and, to be sure, likability. It should also go without saying, dignity.
Yet the debates play an outsize role in campaigns and weigh more heavily on the verdict than their true value deserves.” [Source: Breitbart]
So, in other words, the journalist is basically admitting that Trump would crush Biden in a debate, as the author clearly fears the “outsize role” the debate will have in further propelling Trump.
By the way, where was the “dignity” in the first major Democratic debate, when Kalama Harris launched a vicious attack upon Joe Biden? Why was it ok for Biden to debate several other individuals in the Democratic debates, but all of the sudden, for the most crucial debate of all, he suddenly shouldn’t do it?
Of course, as seen in the terribly unpersuasive opening lines above, the author provided exactly zero justification for this call, in typical leftist fashion. The “journalist” simply mimics every other progressive by repeating the same tired Trump’s that have dogged President Trump’s entire presidency. Yes, he’s “such a liar,” that he’s followed through on virtually all of his promises to Americans, from constructing the wall to encouraging companies to bring jobs back to the United States.
Have you ever noticed that the fake media seems to report on what Trump says far more than what he actually does? That’s because they can take just a few words completely out of context, which is all the better to churn up the social media mob with.
The fake news media has also claimed that Trump is calling for unfair advantages in the debates, which is another reason why they should be cancelled. Apparently Trump calling for his reelection campaign and Biden’s campaign to have an equal say in the debate moderators constitutes “unfair” for the DNC. Then again, it’s also apparently “unfair” that people dare to have any disposable income at all from … working.
The DNC just makes it more and more obvious that their idea of equality is little more than selective equality.
Furthermore, the fake news media might want to align its objectives a bit more effectively with the Biden campaign, given that Mr. Biden’s campaign manager, Jen O’Malley Dillon, insisted earlier this summer that Biden would participate in three official debates with Trump. Even more ironically, Dillon suggested that it would be Trump, rather than Biden backing out of the race.
“First, once formally invited, Vice President Biden will accept and participate in the Commission’s planned Presidential candidates’ debates for September 29, October 15, and October 22 … We hope that President Trump and Vice President Pence will similarly indicate their willingness to participate …
“Joe Biden looks forward to facing Donald Trump in a multi-debate series that the American people have come to expect from their leaders; we hope that President Trump would not break that tradition or make excuses for a refusal to participate” [Source: Fox News]
Ironically, Dillon’s later was dated after Trump had already called for more presidential debates, rather than no presidential debates, but perhaps Dillon is about as “with it” as the Democratic candidate that she’s representing. Or maybe Dillon simply mixed up what she was supposed to say in the letter, just like her boss mixes up the name of the state he’s making a presence in.
Hilariously, the fake news seemed to be just fine about Biden debating just a few years ago as vice president, yet they’re curiously terrified of him being able to debate President Trump now as a presidential candidate.
For instance, back in 2012, The New York Times was singing the praises of Joe Biden’s debate style, even saying that he surpassed the performance of President Obama.
“Mr. Biden is widely viewed as having done a far better job [in the debates] than his boss. Mr. Obama’s aides were at Mr. Biden’s prep sessions, so presumably they picked up pointers …
That was pretty good!” Mr. Obama said again and again at Mr. Biden’s zingers, according to one aide in the room with the president.” [Source: The New York Times]
Looks like Biden may have more difficulty with effective “zingers” against Trump, particularly since the president is clearly sharp, focused, and unwilling to be manipulated by the fake news media and the increasingly insane leftists.
It will be intriguing to see whether or not the calls for Biden to skip the presidential debates actually work, which would be a disappointment to those who have looked forward to watching the ultimate political showdown.
However, the bright side is that refusal to participate in the debates would add further fuel to Trump’s campaign fire, which is already powered by the people, the patriots who are the backbone of the United States.
