yet you wont address any Biden comments, just reflect right back to Trump.

He called a Black interviewer a junkie. That doesnt exactly help with the Black vote.

He is very "forward looking to" debate Trump.

It’s amazing that the Fox News watchers truly have no clue that trump is the one refusing to debate. Biden has already accepted. Trump is scared.

Biden: accepted their debates.

Trump: hasn’t. Too scared.

Sorry to destroy your narrative boys.

Basements and bunkers.

Both of these elitists should step aside for decent candidates who care not just about Americans, but the rest of the world.

In the meantime, America can stay "first" by observing quarantine when visiting our countries, thanks.

70% of Americans don’t want trump to be president. wonderful A!!!

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows that 48% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Fifty percent (50%) disapprove.

The Biden camp are weighing the costs of debating or not. They are hoping that enough people take advantage of advance polling to vote for Biden, just in case he takes a beating during the debates. Basically, they are trying to run out the clock. He has a lead (even though it may be slipping) and his handlers are loathe to do anything to rock the boat. They want to drag him across the finish line and then let his VP pick take over after inauguration.

But... Trump can use this to beat Biden mercilessly. It was obvious in the Democratic primaries that Sen. Joe was slipping. Enough gafftastic material for a whole series of commercials. Not to mention his bizarre fetish for sniffing women's hair. And yes I know Trump has his problems with women too. Biden, however, is caught on tape numerous times indulging himself, and that is what matters.

And now, the truth, as told to Politico by a Trump spokesperson:

“President Trump is looking forward to debating Joe Biden, who is the only one who is being publicly advised to skip debates,” Murtaugh said. “Voters in 16 states will already be casting their early votes before the first debate takes place on September 29th as the schedule stands now. We don’t think it’s too much to ask that Americans get a look at the two candidates side-by-side before voters start voting.”

They want an earlier debate as well as the scheduled three, that is all. They worry about the interview given on the weekend to CNN by a Democratic operative, who strongly advised Biden to NOT debate Trump.

The virus hasn’t disappeared!!!

You still haven't explained though, I have been waiting for your answer but you tend to deflect. The virus only appears at Republican conventions, restaurants, gyms and churches. The virus never appear at protests of millions and funerals for Democrats. Can you explain the science behind that?

77 yr old with suspected dementia, prime SARS-CoV-2 candidate. He should stay home.

Yes, maybe they will just tell Biden he got the nomination and then pick someone else at the convention.

Not like he would really know the difference by now from the basement.

So has Trump, and asked for a 4th one. one in early Sep now that Dem states are sending out ballots so early.

There is no evidence anywhere that says Trump wont debate, So are you playing with the meaning of the word "accept" to say it really means he wont "accept" 3 debates and instead wants 4?

Trump is refusing to accept the debates. Biden has already accepted.

I just can’t wait to see Biden get smoked in the 90 minutes on stage

Interesting approach from a non-partisan. I thought non-partisans would be watching objectively and reserving judgement.

You are using the language of a gunfight hoping to see one get ‘smoked’.

Bass, are you really non-partisan?

77 yr old with suspected dementia, prime SARS-CoV-2 candidate. He should stay home.

And stay out of the White House.

Just wanna try something...

74 yr old with suspected dementia, prime SARS-CoV-2 candidate. He should stay home.

And stay out of the White House.

Yep. Just like I thought. Works much better as a description of Trump.

Face it - Trump's handlers don't want another performance of this....

Mr President, our GDP just decreased farther and faster than since record keeping started in 1947, what do you say about that....

"It is what it is"

Unemployment highest since the Great Depression....

"It is what it is".....

Our deficit and debt is the highest in history...

"It is what it is"....

Race relations are at their most explosive since the 1960s....

"it is what it is"....

Russia and China are stronger and more influential than ever...

"it is what it is"...

Is all of this because of your incompetence, ignorance, and corruption?

"It is what it is"...

Any theories on why Trump is so clearly afraid to accept the debates with Biden?

0 ( +2 / -2 )

39% of Democrat voters dont even agree that Biden should be the nominee. sad.

0 ( +3 / -3 )

The safest person in he country today is trump sitting in the WH biological bunker, making everyone else wear masks, get tested......

The rest have to protect themselves against trump’s followers too stupid to understand that they are putting theirs and everyone else’s lives in danger.

he cant be let out into public.

BIDEN: "No, I haven't taken a test. Why the hell would I take a test? C'mon man. That's like saying you, before you got in this program, if you take a test where you're taking cocaine or not, what do you think huh? Are you a junkie?" (To a Black interviewer)

Joe Biden says he's "forward looking to" debating President Trump because "there gonna be plenty of time."

-1 ( +4 / -5 )

I simply posted what Biden said in an article about Biden. There was no deflection whatsoever.

Immediate response from you, deflect to Trump. This isnt about Trump. Can you make any sense of Biden's attack on a Black interviewer, to speculate that he is a cocaine addict?

-1 ( +4 / -5 )

So has Trump, and asked for a 4th one

Aww, is that the narrative they're telling you in your right-wing fake-news deep-state MSM?

And you believe it?! Do you watch CNN too?!!!

-1 ( +4 / -5 )

I just can’t wait to see Biden get smoked in the 90 minutes on stage. It’ll be interesting to see Biden Get tongue-tied when he’s asked about the defunding the police and then watch him say, “no” he wants to re-allocate funds, which is basically the same thing and then watch how his numbers plummet when he says he doesn’t want to defund the police, he’s going to lose a lot of black voters and a lot of progressives, so he’s in a pickle if he is asked that question and even if he doesn’t want to do it, but a large part of his constituency is demanding it. Oh, what will he do? And that alone, he might want to back out of the debate.

AP news, tens of others. Truth over facts, says Biden.

Trump team seeks 4th debate with Biden, cites voting by mail

-1 ( +3 / -4 )

Wow, that's quite the amazing dodge you did there to avoid discussing the fact that Trump is refusing to do the first three debates.

Damn alternate-alternate facts (aka facts). Super pesky.

-1 ( +4 / -5 )

how does that prove Trump wont debate? Your guy is saying Trump is afraid to debate and is refusing to accept the the three debates. When in fact he wants 4.

Your words are simply talking about all the liberal media reports telling Biden he shouldnt debate and trying to encourage him not to.

My words taste good. factual and truthful.

The Biden camp are weighing the costs of debating or not. 

And we get more of this Fox News Faux story - you can sure tell who lives in the Fox News bubble....

The rest of the world knows both Biden and his campaign have accepted and agreed to the debates - it's the Trump campaign that has yet to fully commit....

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/elections/2020/06/23/biden-campaign-commits-three-debates/3240938001/

And after Wallace and Swan made Trump look like a doddering old buffoon, we know why....

And now, the truth, as told to Politico by a Trump spokesperson:

“President Trump is looking forward to debating Joe Biden, who is the only one who is being publicly advised to skip debates,” Murtaugh said. “Voters in 16 states will already be casting their early votes before the first debate takes place on September 29th as the schedule stands now. We don’t think it’s too much to ask that Americans get a look at the two candidates side-by-side before voters start voting.”

Truth? That's fiction. "Looking forward to" is not confirming officially with the Presidential Debate Commission that Trump will participate....

Biden has done that....Trump hasn't....

Because after the two disastrous interviews, his campaign doesn't think he has the capacity or cognitive ability...and they don't want to see him humiliate himself....again....

-1 ( +2 / -3 )

Good for him. He should remain in his basement. I can't wait to see the result of the election. If Trump wins, the anti Trump camp will throw up blood. If Trump loses, they will get Biden (and this will be really fun.)

Not mentioned is that hundreds of police contracted to work the convention are boycotting it due to lack support from the Democratic Party in dealing with protestors. Throughout Wisconsin, many agencies asked to come for security are dropping like flies. Would you go to work for someone that wants to defund or abolish you from your job?

-1 ( +2 / -3 )

Biden and the Dems adhering to sound medical advice without argument and no drama. Gee, now that strikes me as super presidential behavior. Real leadership in action.

-2 ( +3 / -5 )

he cant be let out into public.

If speaking gibberish meant one couldn't be let out in public, we never would have seen Trump's face in the first place.

This is how ridiculous the right is. They're trying to paint BIDEN as senile after we just watched Trump prove he's a moron every time he opens his mouth and starts dribbling out brain power in a stream of consciousness 

-2 ( +4 / -6 )

Trump asked for another one

Trump is refusing to accept the debates. Biden has already accepted.

Sorry to burst your bubble these alternate-to-the-alternate facts (aka "facts"). Must suck to watch your hero and your narrative blown out of the water.

(Note - I'm very clear that Fox news etc is hiding this info. And your team tries to criticize CNN! What a bunch of rubes!)

-2 ( +3 / -5 )

Yes and you accept the nomination in a public speech. and based on yesterdays speech where he accused a Black interviewer of being a cocaine addict while stumbling all over himself and getting angry, its best that he doesnt go to the convention for any public speech.

Its not what he wants, its a necessity as he cant publicly put together a complete sentence.

Now what did you think about Bidens comments, or what do you think about his decision to not go to the convention?

Would you go to work for someone that wants to defund or abolish you from your job?

A militarized army of thugs is not needed.

UN observers may be an option, as outlandish as it may seem to some.

Trump asked for another one, actually, Trump didnt send his wife to his Fox interview. Try again.

 Trump is still avoiding them. Gotta wonder why...

-3 ( +2 / -5 )

Joe Biden says he's "forward looking to" debating President Trump because "there gonna be plenty of time."

And yet, while Biden has agreed to the debates, Trump is still avoiding them. Gotta wonder why...

-4 ( +3 / -7 )

Well, as a Trump supporter I think this is weak - I mean, look at Trump - he held his Tulsa rally, infected a whole bunch of people, and even sacrificed his best bud Herman Cain - now that's real dedication...

And I stand with Trump when he says the "Libs" are rigging the election and it needs to be postponed....so I'm staying home and not voting on Nov 3rd....

How about it fellow Trump supporters, let's show our solidarity with our President and boycott the rigged election in Nov....

Stay home - don't vote - support Trump! MAGA!
