The Trump campaign trolled Joe Biden (D) who has refused to hold in-person campaign events and continues to, largely, reside in his basement in an August 6 letter to the Commission on Presidential Debates, while asking for a guarantee that the former vice president will definitely appear on stage, in person.
The Trump campaign this week asked the commission for the addition of a fourth, or earlier, debate. While the commission did not approve of the request, it left the door open, telling the Trump campaign that it would consider a fourth debate if the candidates were to agree that they wished to add to that schedule.
We are disappointed in your response, but appreciate your openness to a fourth, or earlier, debate [i]f the candidates were to agree that they wished to add to that schedule,' Trump attorney Rudy Giulini wrote in the letter.
Your reply makes it clear that the idea of an earlier debate is, in effect, locked away in the basement, alone and diminished, he said in an apparent jab at Biden, while seeking assurance that the former vice president will appear on the debate stage in person:
Since your current refusal to consider an additional debate or an earlier date is based on Mr. Bidens unwillingness to agree, it would be logical to assume that any further changes to debate arrangements would hinge on his opinion. We must insist on a commitment that the two candidates will definitely appear on stage, in person whether in a television studio without an audience or elsewhere and not through separate, online transmissions where Mr. Biden could rely on notes, teleprompter, or handlers.

Biden wont, cant, couldnt, wouldnt, and etc. I really dont think hell make to the election. IMHO
Sorry. I meant. Make it to the election.
If Biden can’t show up, IN PERSON, to at least one debate, how the hell can he be a President???
We - average democrats included - are being set up, for only God knows what.
The media being silent on the dementia issue is all you need to know when looking for evidence that this is a problem for the Biden campaign.
Maybe Biden will mail-in his debate performance.
Show up in-person. No earpieces, no notes, no human or electronic prompters.
But they will still figure out a way to cheat.
“Biden wont, cant, couldnt, wouldnt, and etc. I really dont think hell make to the election. IMHO”
Some said the same thing about Hillary. Were you one of them?
The DNC will present a advitar for Joe.
It will look and sound much like Max Headroom.
Hillary didn’t have dementia.
I’d make an offer to come to Joe’s house. Gotta be enough room.
I am told that the deceased vote almost exclusively Democrat. He at his current metabolic trend might join them and rouse them in their cemeteries.
Biden’s team will demand all kinds of concessions from Trump on format and venue etc. The way they see it less is more and the less Biden is seen the better his chances. They don’t care if there are debates at all. They will demand format that gives Biden the best shot.
It’s a more extreme version of the Obama strategy — to allow people to see and create a candidate of their choosing. As soon as Biden opens his mouth he destroys the fantasy.
That’s exactly right.
Dave Limbaugh called for this today.
According to latest intel, Trump is working for the cabbages.
Some people said Hillary couldn’t possibly stand up and debate Trump for two hours. They said she would be replaced before the election. They were wrong. Same stuff is being said about Biden. I would not count on him skipping the debates.
I predict Biden can and will debate Trump and pull it off.
Biden will just repeat canned phrases. After all these aren’t real classic debates anyway. The MSM carefully orchestrates and controls them with leaked questions to the dems. The MSM have Biden’s back.
Trump knockout? Certainly possible if Trump’s team sets it up right. But a rope-a-dope by Biden where he survives is also possible.
