Biden Campaign Officially Turns Down Presidential Debates Commission


by Matt Margolis

The Biden campaign is officially abandoning the Presidential Debates Commission.

For months, the campaign has been setting the stage for Joe Biden’s potential refusal to engage in any presidential debates while simultaneously laying the groundwork to blame Donald Trump for it — even though Trump has been calling on Biden to debate the entire time. Now, the campaign says it will not participate in the three planned debates for the fall, set up by the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD).

Instead, Biden is calling for direct negotiations between the campaigns and is proposing two televised presidential debates, one in June and one in September.

“Donald Trump lost two debates to me in 2020,” Biden falsely claimed in a video statement released Wednesday, “and since then, he hasn’t shown up for a debate.”

Neither has Biden, for that matter; he refused to debate his primary challengers.

“Now he is acting like he wants to debate me again,” Biden continued. “Well, make my day, pal. I’ll even do it twice. So let’s pick the dates, Donald. I hear you’re free on Wednesdays.”

It’s worth noting that the above video of Biden is a mere 13 seconds long yet has five jump cuts.

The Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) set up the initial presidential debate for Monday, Sept. 16, at Texas State University in San Marcos. The next debate was arranged for Tuesday, Oct. 1, at Virginia State University in Petersburg. The final debate was scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 9, at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City. The Trump campaign has been advocating for debates to occur before the commencement of early voting.

“The Commission’s model of building huge spectacles with large audiences at great expense simply isn’t necessary or conducive to good debates,” Biden campaign chair Jen O’Malley Dillon claimed in a letter to the commission. “The debates should be conducted for the benefit of the American voters, watching on television and at home — not as entertainment for an in-person audience with raucous or disruptive partisans and donors, who consume valuable debate time with noisy spectacles of approval or jeering.”

The Biden campaign’s position on participating in the presidential debates has been so ambiguous and noncommittal that major news outlets issued a joint statement urging both candidates to publicly commit to debating — though everybody knew the statement was aimed at Biden.

Biden’s reason for refusing to participate in the debates is obvious. His public appearances have been disasters as he struggles to even read off his teleprompter. And when he goes off the cuff, well, forget about it.

In September 2023, I predicted that Kennedy entering the race as an independent would take far more votes from Biden than Trump

So far, I’d say that’s playing out

The Biden campaign is now stalling on scheduling debates with Trump b/c they don’t want Kennedy on stage

They believe he’ll siphon votes from Biden

The bad news for them is…they’re right

The really bad news for them is that they may not have the ability to stop it

If Kennedy hits 15 percent in national polling, he gets a spot on that debate stage and Biden is going to look like a decrepit zombie compared to the energetic, liberal RFK

Trump can push his MAGA message while Biden and RFK squabble over who’s more liberal

Yes, RFK takes some votes away from Trump, but that number keeps getting smaller (especially after people learn RFK is pro-late term abortion and anti-2A) while the number of votes RFK takes from Biden keeps getting bigger

Big problems in Biden land!


Should Trump call joe’s bluff and agree to such debates?
I think joe would pee his pants if Trump said OK.
But then, joe pees his pants all the time anyway, so….

He needs to be drug tested prior to the debate. Also look for IV scares and jet black eyes. Signs of drug infusion.

A DNA test wouldn’t hurt, either. Make sure it’s actually Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden.

Wide shots showing both candidates as each answers.
Some people are thinking joe would have all Q&A in advance and simply pre-record the answers on an identical sound stage wit a tight shot while Trump thinks joe’s making a fool of himself, these “cogent” answers are being aired.
Far out but not impossible.

They can’t replace Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden now. They’ve already declared him a hot-running dynamo that runs his staff ragged with his unbridled energy. If they try to dump him now and if they go to a virtual convention, it will only look like they have submitted to the intimidation of the pro-Hamas terrorism extremist wing of their party.

Trump lost the two debates? Does Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden consider not getting called out for his lies while Trump pummels him with the truth about him and Hunter raking in millions from China a “victory”?

I hope someone is keeping close tabs on communications between the White House and CNN. CNN has been known to cheat a little for the Democrats. They are going to have to go to some extremes if they are going to keep Trump from recounting every accusation he made against Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden in 2020 and show that they were TRUE.

Please pay attention Micheal and Greg Bidens polls are Crashing in Flames the two of you walk around with your heads in the clouds
