Could it be that lunchbucket Joe will soon become chicken Joe? That may be the case if some Democrat supporters get their way.
With the realization that the deteriorating Biden is incapable of stringing together a string of coherent sentences let alone defending himself against President Trump in a real debate, efforts are intensifying to persuade the former veep to pull out of the debates.
Joe Lockhart who was the White House Press Secretary under Bill Clinton and is now a regular on CNN is urging Biden to back out of the debates under the pretense that by showing up, he is giving Trump a national forum.
According to Lockhart:
"Trump “will take the truth and destroy it, and Biden will be in the position of correcting him over and over and over again. I don't think he should give him that platform.”
It's a lame excuse but with the party desperate to keep Biden locked away in a basement until after the election look for it to be an idea that is going to take hold in the media.
Democratic strategists and supporters of Vice President Joe Biden are urging him not to debate President Donald Trump in the lead-up to Election Day, citing Trump's publicity stunts and disregard for the rules in 2016. Meanwhile Biden backers, including some conservatives, applauded the University of Notre Dame and the University of Michigan for cancelling their scheduled debates over COVID-19 concerns.
Former White House Press Secretary Joe Lockhart joined several Democratic Party strategists in bluntly advising Biden, "whatever you do, don't debate Trump." Speaking on CNN Saturday, Lockhart said Trump shouldn't be given another platform which will enable him to "repeat lies," which he said occurred in the 2016 debates against Hillary Clinton.
The Trump campaign has pushed the other way and urged the nonpartisan Commission on Presidential Debates, which officially oversees the events, to hold even more debates.
"We saw in the debates in 2016 Hillary Clinton showed a mastery of the issues, every point she made was more honest and bested Trump," Lockhart told CNN. "But Trump came out of the debates doing better I think because he just kept repeating the same old lies: 'we're going to build a wall and Mexico is going to pay for it,' 'we're going to keep all those Mexican rapists out of the country,' and 'we're going to make great trade deals' — none of these things have come to pass."
"Giving him that national forum to continue to spout — get him to 21,000 or 22,000 lies — I think just isn't worth it for the Democrats or for Biden," Lockhart continued.
Trump mopped the floor with Hillary but that is nothing compared to what he would do with the stammering, senile mess that is Joe Biden.
Biden already received a break when Notre Dame University withdrew from hosting the first debate due to COVID-19 which has been the best thing to ever happen to Democrats who have weaponized the panic to shut down Trump's rallies, censor dissent and keep Biden off the campaign trail.
The idea that a major party presidential candidate would pull out of the debates would be unprecedented and it has never before happened in American political history.
