Former Vice President Joe Biden has chickened out on President Trump’s proposed debate schedule.
“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,” Biden campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dillon wrote Monday in a letter to the nonpartisan Commission on Presidential Debates, the Washington Post reported.
However, what they won’t agree to is a fourth debate as proposed by the Trump campaign.
No one should be fooled: the Trump campaign’s new position is a debate distraction,” O’Malley Dillon said in the letter. “The Trump position seems to be saying that he will debate if he can pick the moderators: clearly the President, who largely conducts interviews only with favorable news outlets, is afraid of facing questions from a neutral moderator. The Trump campaign proposal for elaborate negotiations is merely an effort to dodge fair, even-handed debates.”
O’Malley Dillon also said something very curious, “Nothing should prevent the conduct of debates between Joe Biden and Donald Trump on these dates; again, we do not want to provide President Trump with any excuses for not debating,” she wrote.
However, contrary to the Biden campaigns claims one of the debate commission chairmen said that if both candidates agree to a fourth debate, they will work to make it happen.
First of all, if there is a candidate that doesn’t want to debate it’s Joe Biden, this reverse psychology from the Biden campaign is hilarious. I don’t care if Jim Acosta and Brian Stelter are the debate moderators they are not going to be able to help Joe Biden when he goes one on one with President Trump. The man can barely get through an auto factory without putting his foot in his mouth. On top of that Biden isn’t even as polished as Hillary Clinton was, she could at least form a complete sentence.
