In a letter to the Commission on Presidential Debates, Biden campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dillon wrote that the former vice president plans to participate in the three debates scheduled for September 29, October 15, and October 22.
However, the Biden campaign is also hinting that the Coronavirus may stop the debates from occurring. What is happening here?
Biden advisors and staff members do not want a typical debate between President Trump and Biden because they know that Biden will not do well. The former Vice President is not capable of effectively debating Trump.
Here is what they are probably thinking:
- Cancel the debates and blame it on the virus.
- At a minimum, the debates should not occur in person. The candidates and the moderators should appear by Zoom or the equivalent. Biden presents horribly in person.
- Tell the liberal media that Trump wants more debates because he wants to change the current narrative. Give the impression that Trump thinks Biden is winning so far.
- At all costs, keep Biden out of public exposure. Blame the virus and say he is prudent by staying in his basement.
The reality is, Biden wants to hide right up to the election. When he does step out of his bunker, he can hardly go a day without uttering nonsense.
The Trump campaign must force the issue of debates and try to get Biden out of hiding.
