Posted on 10/09/2020 4:08:09 PM PDT by Syncro
Following the announcement that the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) was revising the format of the Oct. 15 debate to become a virtual event, with candidates appearing from remote locations, President Trump said he wouldnt be participating. This decision put the entire debate schedule in flux, with former Vice President Biden quickly scheduling a Town Hall event on with ABC News on Oct. 15 instead of the debate.
As a result, the next Presidential Debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden will not be held until Oct. 22. The President is also trying to add a third debate, on Oct. 29, but the Biden campaign has said they will not agree to participate.
As it stands now, the Oct. 22 debate might be the final time the candidates meet on the debate stage before Election Day, according to The Hill:

An extended back-and-forth between the campaigns threw the presidential debate schedule into chaos Thursday, raising the question: Will there even be another debate?
There are health concerns clouding the future of the potential face-offs, given the extraordinary situation that one of the candidates, President Trump, currently is infected with a contagious and potentially deadly virus.
Chris Wallass, Susan Page, and Steve Scummy killed it!! YEAH!
Convenient how Biden was able to fill that Oct 15 date so quickly with ABC, hmmmm??
So if the next debate is Oct 22, and so many absentee ballots are being urged to get mailed early, Uncle Joe can have a total melt down and there will not be a chance to change the already mailed in ballots.
All part of the plan..
I guess they did not like the president on national radio for 2 hours, maybe upstaged them a bit?
The Commission on Presidential Debates is supposedly bipartisan w/ an equal number of Rs and Ds. I know all of the Republicans and most are friends of mine. I am concerned that none of them support @realDonaldTrump. A biased Debate Commission is unfair.
So there you have it. Two taps to the back of the skull. The PDC is dead Jim.
Yeah but the MSN can schedule a Biden Campaign ad disguised as a Townhall in a split second.
Hey, CPD... Screw you!!!
Bob Dole is absolutely correct on this. I am shocked he spoke out.
Deader than a DOORNAIL!!! YEAH!!
We freakin destroyed that SOB Scully. All he had to do was stay silent and instead he ruined the MSM Narrative by DMing Mooch thru Twitter! Lofl
They’ll find another reason to not debate Trump on the 22nd. It’s up to the people because the media won’t let there be national conversation. Hopefully Trumps record will be enough. Hopefully people don’t just sit on FR and say, go Trump go, but they get out there and talk to neighbor, friends and family and get the vote out for Trump
Is that a different organization, the PDC?
Is ABC offering President Trump equal time for a town hall meeting? Surely Rush Limbaugh offered equal time on the radio to Uncle Joe. LOL!
Yeah good on Bob
Biden quit the debate.
We need Maria Bartiromo as a moderator.
Is ABC offering President Trump equal time for a town hall meeting?
ABC should be fined by the FEC and FCC for not giving Trump equal time.
Dole finally wakes up.
He’s 97 for crying out loud. Give him a break.
He’s been behind Trump the whole time.
