The coming Bash/Tapper debate is, of course, already rigged

Loading

 

I could summarize this post easily in a short sentence- the fix is in.

In three days, Donald Trump and Joe Biden will participate in a debate. It’s been engineered to favor Biden. They get to sit, have to remain quiet while the other speaks and will have the mics shut off if they run over time. Remember that one- it’s going to be used to cut Trump off early and often. They get potty breaks. One of the participants needs it more than the other.

Biden cannot stand for two hours and chew gum, let alone sound coherent. He really can’t even stand for two hours. But CNN has already given us a glimpse of what’s to come. And that glimpse tell us that this debate is not really about Trump and Biden. It’s about Bash and Tapper.

CNN’s Kasie Hunt provided that clue when she cut off Karoline Leavitt part way into an interview.

Hunt asked Leavitt how Trump is going to handle the debate differently compared to the 2020 election.

“President Trump knows what he wants to say, and he’s going to relay his vision to the American people to make this country strong, safe, secure and wealthy again. He’s been doing that across this great nation to all corners of this country,” Leavitt responded. “And that’s why President Trump is knowingly going into a hostile environment on this very network, on CNN, with debate moderators who have made their opinions about him very well known over the past eight years and their biased coverage of him.”

Hunt said her colleagues, Jake Tapper and Dana Bash, are professionals and interview Republican and Democratic newsmakers.

In response, Leavitt said moderator Jake Tapper had compared Trump to Adolf Hitler.

“Well, first of all, it takes about five minutes to Google Jake Tapper, Donald Trump to see that Jake Tapper has,” Leavitt said before Hunt jumped in and told her she would end the interview if she continued attacking her CNN colleagues.

“Ma’am, we’re going to stop this interview if you’re going to keep attacking my colleagues,” she said.

Leavitt kept speaking and Hunt ended the interview.

Leavitt touched a nerve in Hunt, but Leavitt has a point- Tapper has quite the history of savaging Trump as Tapper did indeed compare Trump to Hitler.

Tapper, the network’s lead Washington anchor, has called the 45th president a “desperate electoral loser” in the past, suggested Trump spread “Russian propaganda” — and has said that if re-elected, the former president will try to “kill democracy.

“He did try to kill democracy once, and he’s going to try to do it again,” Tapper said on air in December 2021. “But this time with a little help from his friends.”

Tapper also has compared Trump’s language about “poisoning the blood of our country” to Hitler’s manifesto “Mein Kampf,” and in the aftermath of the Jan. 6 riots, suggested that Trump incited a “terrorist attack” on America.

Watch for yourself

Tapper is also currently being sued for defamation.

The court’s decision succinctly summarized the background of the case: “On November 11, 2021, CNN’s ‘The Lead with Jake Tapper’ aired a video segment by reporter Alex Marquardt about Afghans attempting to flee the Taliban via private evacuation operators like Young. Over the next few days, Marquardt’s reporting was republished on another CNN program, disseminated on Facebook and Twitter, and repackaged into a digital article on CNN’s website.”

Young sued CNN for defamation and trade libel, arguing his reputation was damaged by the news station’s coverage. “Specifically, Young alleged CNN repeatedly accused him of operating in a ”black market” and mischaracterized his work as exploitative because he charged “exorbitant” fees Afghan citizens could not pay. Young claimed he was particularly harmed because he was the only private evacuator profiled in the reporting,” the decision reads.

The public is rather dubious about the debate hosts and their network. Only 45% have a favorable view of CNN, only 30% view Tapper favorably and only 25% have much regard for the appropriately named Bash.

Bash is no better. Here she is complaining that Trump was allowed to remain on the ballot.

That’s not all

Bash, also CNN’s host of “Inside Politics,” has made sniping remarks targeting Trump, too.

She has argued that “unfortunately for America,” the US Supreme Court decided to keep Trump on the Colorado ballot and suggested that the former president incited “war” domestically during his first term.

“Maybe he didn’t start any new wars abroad, but he completely incited battle after battle and even, I would say, war domestically,” Bash said in January 2021 in response to Trump’s White House farewell video.

Bash also criticized the first Trump-Biden 2020 presidential debate for being a “s–t show” because of the former president.

She argued that the debate was a “bad reality TV show” and that Trump “took it too far” with his aggression during the match-up.

Followed by this amusing little tidbit:

A CNN spokesperson told The Post that there is “no two people better equipped” than Tapper and Bash to moderate the debate.

Well, yeah, I guess. No two people outside the Biden campaign are better equipped to aid Biden.

I have little doubt that CNN will leak the questions to the Biden campaign. They did it in 2016 so there’s really no reason to doubt that they would repeat. I am also of the opinion that Joe Biden will be injected with a stimulant prior to the debate. There are a number of them available- methylphenidate, amphetamine, and dextroamphetamine and modafinil. Donald Trump had suggested both men take a drug test prior to the debate. That would be a great thing. One online poll showed 90% support for drug testing.

I had to include this- suggested debate questions from Hans Mahncke on X:

In a sane world, these would be the top 5 questions asked of Biden:

• You falsely accused President Trump of the Fine People Hoax and even claimed it was the reason you decided to run for president. Will you now apologize?

• Why did you falsely claim during the second 2020 presidential debate that your son’s laptop was a Russian plot?

• Why did you meet Vadym Pozharsky, the CFO of Burisma who ordered your son to fire the Ukrainian prosecutor that you later got fired?

• Why did you repeatedly lie about never meeting Pozharsky and various other people who were funneling huge amounts of money to your son?

• Why did you tell Comey to pursue @genflynn for Logan Act violations?

That has zero chance of happening.

The deck is stacked against Trump. It’s three to one. Trump and Biden are on trial here, but Bash and Tapper even more so. This debate is about them. It is a test. America will be watching.

Here’s one more little nugget

Trump will decimate biden. It will be a lions den but Trump will survive.

That’s why you’re making excuses for Trump’s performance ahead of time?

What excuses? The rabid bias of CNN is a documented fact. Oh… that’s right. You don’t know what a “fact” is.

It’s only an “established fact” in the cult compound.

No, actually it has been established as fact by anyone that watches that shit. Just remember, they ran with the “Russian collusion” hoax long after it was thoroughly debunked, as well as having to pay millions to Sandman for attacking him and running with the Russian disinformation lie about Hunter’s laptop. They are and will never be anything more than a leftist propaganda organ.

Thats why your a total idiot just like Micheal

*you’re

Birds Smarter then Snowflakes

Spell checker, its never Go Duck yourself.

All Trump has to do is STFU, stick to the points, look at PedoJo and shake his head.

In an honest debate with non-far-leftist, biased moderators, absolutely. With Tapper, Bash and CNN, who knows? Hopefully, Trump at least starts out that way.

No, you can expect tough, hard hitting questions from CNN such as, “Has the taste of ice cream improved during your term?” and “Has the number of resounding successes you have accomplished been too hard to bear?” They might slip in, “How is the Vette running?”

The plethora of questions for Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden that have never BEEN asked by his lapdog media would fill a full day’s debate. Of course, there will be no quarter for Trump.

Bathroom breaks? Really? They should drug test Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden after that, too.

We already know the M.S. Media Bottom Feeders support the Demon-Rats we saw that for Four Whole Years under Trump

Tough shit.

You’re having fun enjoying your fascism, aren’t you?

Keep lowering those expectations for your guy!

How have I lowered expectations? It is the left that considers it a major accomplishment if Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden doesn’t fall down and shit himself.

It is the left that considers it a major accomplishment if Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden doesn’t fall down and shit himself.

You must be looking at sources different from the ones I’m looking at. All I’m seeing on the left is an assumption that Biden is going to demolish Trump fair and square.

I find it especially funny that “Dr.” John is upset by the idea that the debaters are supposed to keep quiet when their opponent is speaking. That is, of course, how civilized debates work, but “Dr.” knows that it is nearly impossible for Trump to do. I don’t know how “Dr.” thinks the moderators will cut off Trump’s mic “early and often.” Either it will be his time to talk—in which case, his mic will be turned on—or it will be Biden’s turn to talk, in which case it will be turned off.

Yes, Trump will try to shout over Biden. That’s his modus operandi. Yes, the debate is set up to keep both of them from speaking over each other. That’s the way it should be.

Cry more.

Well, how would you feel if you were reduced to trying to defend the corrupt, incompetent, treasonous pedophile, Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden?

You must be looking at sources different from the ones I’m looking at.

I can most assuredly guarantee that I am. I don’t poison my mind with leftist propaganda that has a long history of lying. Life’s far too short for that. But, if it takes 16 aides and 7 days to prepare for a 90 minute debate on friendly turf, you’ve got one lost cause there, scooter. What does he need to prepare? Why doesn’t he just run on his record?

In fact, Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden has already lost the election. He has nothing to defend, nothing to brag about, nothing to appeal to voters. All he has is a record of failure, disaster, loss, violence, crime, inflation and wars.

Keep on letting lower Rosebud and you can walk under a snake and reach up and Tickle it

Gun owners have killed endlessly more people than migrants, and you like it.

Even if that’s true — you useless, lying, America hating dipshit — the number killed by illegal aliens should be zero. Why isn’t it? Because we have Democrats.

As I pointed out to you before, there is a vast difference between gun OWNERS and gun POSSESSORS. It is the gun POSSESSOR that commits most of the gun crimes, which means someone illegally in possession of a gun. Gun owners commit relatively few of those crimes.

However, illegal immigrants commit ALL the crimes committed by illegal immigrants, which is to say, crimes that would NOT have been committed had Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden not issued open invitations for any and all illegal immigrants to come to our wide open border and be welcomed in as honored guests, without vetting, without regard for how many times they have been removed from the country previously (felonies).

I don’t consider this format to be a debate. To my sensibilities, a debate is when the two opponents take either side of a polar argument. They argue their positions regarding THE SAME QUESTION.

If the moderators ask the two opponents each different questions it’s more like the part of a beauty pageant where the master of ceremonies pulls a question out of a fishbowl for each contestant so they can demonstrate their charm.

I take it as given that Biden is rehearsing, not practicing, as he has already been given the questions. I also take it as a given that Biden will be given free rein to lie. I believe each side is given 90 seconds per question. Trump should jot down every lie told by Biden and use the first 15 or 20 seconds of each opportunity to summarize the lies just told by Biden.

Too much rehearsing can be a bad thing. There are problems with scripted answers. One is using a wrong word that sounds like the intended word and Biden does this often even with a teleprompter. Another problem occurs when the order of the topics is changed. I recall the time Karine Jean-Pierre read from her binder a prepared response that was for the NEXT question to be asked.

Just because the future of the nation is in the balance is not a reason to not make popcorn for this.

Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden has spent 7 days rehearsing the act of being a successful President. He probably should have started a week earlier. If he pulls that off, he should get an Emmy.

See? Nothing to worry about.

tapper

PT should have taken a drug test before the debate and then reminded people during the debate that there was only one drug free person on the debate stage tonight.
