Guess who chickened out on President Trump’s proposed debate schedule. That’s right, it was Former Vice President Joe Biden.
This was after Biden’s campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dillon tried to say Trump would be the one to not show. “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,” she wrote in a letter to the nonpartisan Commission on Presidential Debates.
Dillon continues in the letter, “No one should be fooled: the Trump campaign’s new position is a debate distraction. The Trump position seems to by 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.”
“Nothing should prevent the conduct of debates between Joe Biden and Donald Trump on these dates,” she added. “Again, we do not want to provide President Trump with any excuses for not debating.”
Still, one of the commission chairmen said that if both candidates agree to a fourth debate, they will work to make it happen.
If there is any candidate that doesn’t want to debate it’s Joe Biden, which makes reverse psychology from the Biden campaign even more hilarious.
It really doesn’t matter who the debate moderators are they won’t be able to help Joe when he goes toe to toe with President Trump. He is not nearly as polished as Hillary Clinton was, and she may be awful but at least she could form a coherent sentence.
