    The White House refused to confirm or deny Monday whether President Joe Biden intends to use performance-enhancing drugs in preparation for the presidential debates. Former President Donald Trump believes Biden should receive a drug test before the debates. “I don’t want him coming in like the State of the Union,” Trump told Republicans during a speech in Minnesota on Friday. “He was high as a kite. I said, ‘Is that Joe up there, that beautiful room? And by the end of the evening, he’s like” — Trump made a guttural sound — “He was exhausted, right? No, we’re going to...

    On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” host Bill Maher reacted to President Joe Biden and 2024 Republican presidential candidate former President Donald Trump agreeing to two presidential debates by stating that the agreement to have the debates shows that Biden “knows he’s losing, because else he wouldn’t have agreed” to debate because “Only the loser wants to debate.” Maher also stated that Trump would want to debate regardless of how he was doing in the polls because “Trump always wants a crowd.”

  • Is the Commission on Presidential Debates Toast?

    So Joe Biden has publicly agreed to two debates with Donald Trump, one in June and another in September. Frankly, I'll believe it when I see it, but I suppose we should take him at his word for now. However, assuming they happen, these will be different than the presidential debates we've witnessed in the past. The candidates have bypassed the Commission on Presidential Debates and opted to allow CNN and ABC News to host the events without an audience being present. So is this an aberration or will it become a trend going forward? The Associated Press suggests that...
  • Biden challenges Trump to pair of debates — but only on his terms: ‘Make my day, pal’

    President Biden said he is willing to debate former President Donald Trump twice ahead of the election — but only if Trump agrees to his strict terms. “Donald Trump lost two debates to me in 2020, and now he wants to debate me again,” Biden said in the fiery video released Wednesday. “Well, make my day, pal,” Biden, 81, added. The Biden camp, however, rejected allowing the nonpartisan Commission on Presidential Debates to run the face-offs, despite it having done so since 1988, a letter obtained by the New York Times revealed. Instead of the commission debates on Sept. 16,...

    In a world where sociopolitical issues are increasingly divisive, saying the perceived wrong thing on gender identity or the Israel-Palestine conflict could make you a victim of cancel culture—or, fired from your job. Now, Google CEO Sundar Pichai has weighed in on the debate over the relative values of political expression and workplace coexistence by ordering employees to leave their political opinions at home. A day after firing 28 workers for participating in a sit-in protest of the tech giant’s cloud contract with Israel, Pichai warned staff that the office is not a place “to fight over disruptive issues or...

    NBC News chief political analyst Chuck Todd said on Thursday on MSNBC’s “Chris Jansing Reports” that former President Donald Trump will not be helped with voters if he debates President Joe Biden. Jansing said, “Where do you put the chances of a debate actually happening?” Todd said, “I think it’s pretty low. I would be surprised if there’s a debate. It is really hard to justify sharing a stage with Trump knowing how the conversation’s going to go.”

    Florida Governor Ron DeSantis criticized former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley and former President Donald Trump during a town hall event this week for declining to debate ahead of the New Hampshire primary. DeSantis made the remarks during the CNN town hall after finishing second in the Iowa caucuses this week behind former President Donald Trump, with Haley coming in third. Both DeSantis and Haley had heavily focused on the state, ad spending for both surpassing $30 million — pro-DeSantis spending reaching $35 million while pro-Haley spending reached $37 million, the most of any candidate. “The tradition here with first-in-the-nation is...

    'THIS IS A TIME-HONORED TRADITION.' Gov. Ron DeSantis is as low as 4% in some New Hampshire polling, but he continues to contend the two front-runners should debate him before next week’s Primary. “This is a time-honored tradition that you debate in New Hampshire the week before the New Hampshire Primary. So I plan on being there on Thursday,” DeSantis said about the WMUR debate scheduled, but so far with only a commitment from the Florida Governor. “I understand why Nikki Haley doesn’t want to debate and yes, Donald Trump should debate as well. But either way, I’m going to...

    Nikki Haley bowed out of the two upcoming Republican presidential primary debates in New Hampshire the morning after she landed third place in the Iowa caucuses. The former South Carolina governor announced the news on social media, saying the next time she debates she will be on stage beside Joe Biden or Donald Trump, who has skipped all five Republican primary debates.

    The Governor worries Donald Trump and Nikki Haley now won't bother to debate him in the Granite State, where he trails badly. Gov. Ron DeSantis denies that he was “petrified” by the news Chris Christie was suspending his presidential run, but he is admitting in Iowa that he would have preferred a different outcome. DeSantis wanted the former New Jersey Governor in the race to ensure a televised debate in New Hampshire actually happens, an outcome apparently in doubt now. “I wanted him to stay in because I think if he was in the WMUR debate on Thursday and I...

    Former President Donald Trump and Fox News have scheduled an Iowa town hall event on the same date and at the same time (Wednesday, January 10, at 9:00 p.m. ET) as CNN’s upcoming Republican presidential debate. For some insane reason, a few of the dummies running for the Republican presidential nomination have agreed to allow far-left CNN to host a debate in Iowa. File that under Why we lose. But now, just five days before the all-important Iowa Caucus on Saturday, January 15, Trump will deliver a two-fer. This Fox News town hall will not only steal attention away from...

    DES MOINES, Iowa — There's less than three weeks until the Iowa caucuses, and GOP presidential candidates are blitzing through Iowa. Recently, Ron DeSantis made multiple stops across the state and brought along some Iowa leaders who have endorsed him.

His campaign tells Iowa's News Now he's garnered support from more than 30,000 Iowans who plan to caucus for him. They have more than 1,000 caucus captains who will be speaking in favor of him at precincts...

    Satanic Temple co-founder Lucien Greaves tore into Republican presidential candidate Ron DeSantis on Thursday and challenged him to a debate after DeSantis blamed a Satanic altar in Iowa’s State Capitol on former President Donald Trump. “Did the Trump administration’s actions actually give your organization a legal standing to have this display?” asked Phillip, to which Greaves replied:... Greaves insisted, “Our IRS tax-exempt application certainly never came across Trump’s desk. Trump wouldn’t have comprehended it if he had seen it, and I think DeSantis knows that. It’s just another display of cowardice from a politician who wants to play ignorant.” The...
