Biden’s Debate Demands Show His Weakness. Trump Can Capitalize On It


by Eddie Scarry

The exhaustive list of demands released by Joe Biden’s campaign for only two presidential debates tells you just how weak he truly is, but whatever. They’re not unreasonable requirements, and a couple could even work to Donald Trump’s advantage.

Trump has accepted the proposal, but he should also insist some of his own conditions are agreed to by Biden and, just as crucially, whoever moderates.

Biden’s demands are laughably transparent. He wants two debates instead of three because his campaign knows as well as anyone there’s no upside in the rapidly deteriorating president appearing next to the tanned, restless, and ready Trump, who is currently demolishing Biden in surveys of swing-state voters.

He wants no live audience in the room because his campaign knows as well as anyone that Trump remains the unparalleled political performer who thrives in front of a crowd.

Biden’s most controversial demand is that Trump’s mic be muted when it’s Biden’s allotted time to speak. After all, Biden’s campaign knows that directly engaging the former president is high risk, no reward. Biden wants the same done for his own mic when it’s Trump’s time.

Again, whatever. Trump would stand to benefit from the muted mic agreement anyway. His performances in the two debates with Biden in 2020 were a failure by any honest assessment. His attempt to overwhelm his opponent with what amounted to a bunch of incoherent noise backfired. It reinforced voters’ belief that Trump was chaotic and exhausting at a time when everything was already chaotic and exhausting.

In the coming rematches with Biden — a diminished and feeble figure loved by no one but Zelensky and defense contractors — a lot less will be more.

But if Biden wants to overhaul debate format precedent, it shouldn’t be that every change is to his advantage. His CVS receipt-length list of requirements said nothing about who gets to moderate, other than that it should be standard anchors or hosts from one of the big news networks.

Admittedly, Biden has nothing to worry about regardless of who ends up moderating. Even the Fox News-designated moderator of the first 2020 debate, Chris Wallace, interfered on Biden’s behalf. The corporate media personalities who moderate this year’s debates will do the same whenever they can.

That’s why Trump should insist that if the candidates can’t interrupt each other during their respective turns, the moderators also need to keep their mouths shut during the candidates’ allotted time. As important, moderators should be forbidden from injecting their unnecessary thoughts and opinions (sometimes falsely referred to as “fact-checking”) for the duration of the event. That can wait for their little roundtables afterward.

Trump will have no problem lighting into the moderator if they try to pull a (too much) Candy Crowley. It, of course, goes without saying that CNN and ABC will be on Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden’s side 100%. The moderators chose are, naturally, ardent anti-Trump maniacs. But, Trump, as we have seen, excels when the odds are stacked against him.

Biden is nothing but a Puppet for the UN/CFR/Globalists they pull his strings and he Dances for them time to end this all and put America First and Globalists dead last

Trump Throws Down the Gauntlet: Demands Biden Prove His Fitness with Pre-Debate Drug Test

Or release the Robert Hur tapes. We could access his fitness by listening to his ramblings.

Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden should be watching this an shitting his pants. Well…. he probably is, but then again, he always does that. But he should realize THIS is what he has to out-debate. He’s too stupid to be scared.
