President Donald Trump issued a challenge to Joe Biden and his campaign: how about we give the American people more than just three debates? Well, Biden and his campaign staffers freaked out, and Barack Obama came to their rescue. Don’t miss this.
Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani requested an additional presidential debate with Joe Biden in a call last week with Frank Fahrenkopf, the co-chair of the nonpartisan Commission on Presidential Debates.
“We want fair debates,” Parscale said in the call, according to The Associated Press. “We want them sooner and we want a bigger schedule. We also don’t want them up against football games competing for viewers.”
The Biden campaign is attempting to pull a dirty trick by pushing for mail-in voting prior to any of the scheduled debates.
“They argued that because of the coronavirus pandemic and the push for expanded mail-in-voting, many ballots could be sent before the first scheduled debate takes place,” USA Today reports.
Biden campaign spokesman Jen O’Malley Dillon made the ridiculous claim that “any ‘debate proposals’ are just an effort to change the subject, avoid debates, or create a distracting ‘debate about debates.'”
This is the type of response we should expect from a gaffe-prone Biden campaign. Just like their candidate, they make no sense at all.
After the former Veep’s campaign rejected the idea of a fourth debate, Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh claimed the Biden campaign was “afraid” to send the Democrat out in unscripted situations, noting it’s been more than 80 days since Biden held a press conference.
“An earlier and longer debate schedule is necessary so Americans can see the clear difference between President Trump’s vibrant leadership and Biden’s confused meandering,” Murtaugh said in a statement.
“It’s pretty obvious that Joe Biden’s handlers are afraid to send their candidate out without a script and teleprompter handy,” Murtaugh added.
It’s a fact that the Democrats have been hiding “Sleepy Creepy Uncle Joe” in his basement bunker and only allowing interviews under seven minutes with friendly cable networks. However, if the American people demanded an additional debate, the Biden campaign would be hard-pressed to avoid it.
Right now, the debates are scheduled for September 29 at the University of Notre Dame, just outside South Bend, Indiana, October 15 at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts in Miami, and Oct. 22 at Belmont University in Nashville, Tenn.
Barack Obama also stepped in with a much-needed distraction from the “debate over the debates.”
At the same time that Biden was announcing he is refusing to add a debate, Obama pops up to cover up for Biden by joining him in an online fundraiser.
“I’m joining my friend @JoeBiden tomorrow to talk about everything that’s at stake in this election. I hope you’ll join us, too. This is a critical moment in our history––and all of us have to do our part to build this country into what we know it can be,” Obama tweeted.

The Democrat Party is hoping Obama can transfer his star-power to a much beleaguered Joe Biden. This is exactly what they tried with Hillary Clinton in 2016, and we all know how that ended.
Even the left-leaning Politico warned: “But Obama’s reemergence is not without risks for Biden.” In the wake of this BLM movement, Biden is being slammed for his record on criminal justice reform.
“Sleepy Joe Biden’s 1994 Crime Bill was a total disaster. It was mass incarceration for Black people, many of them innocent. I did Criminal Justice Reform, something Obama & Biden didn’t even try to do – & couldn’t do even if they did try. Biden can never escape his Crime Bill!” tweeted Trump.

Another Twitter user said: “I can’t @BarackObama. You are pushing the wrong candidate. You know this. Sorry, I was once a devotee. No longer. People before banks & billion dollar corps!!! Please Sir, to coin a phrase, « Do the right thing! » make that part of your legacy!”

According to the mainstream media polls, President Trump is trailing Joe Biden by 10 points nationwide. However, we all know the polls in 2016 also claimed Hillary Clinton was a shoo-in and had no way to lose.
Most seasoned politicos will tell you they can’t imagine how Joe Biden will last in three separate three-hour-long debates against President Trump. It’s even being reported that there is no doubt the Biden campaign will have to resort to some type of device to keep their candidate on track.
Most Americans do watch presidential debates as a way to make up their minds of who to vote for, so there is a lot on the line.
So, why not conduct one more debate? We all know the answer to that question. Joe Biden can’t last through a soft-ball interview with Chris Cuomo, so how in the world will he ever last on stage against President Donald Trump? There is only one prediction we can make: it’s going to be a very ugly and bumpy ride for the Biden campaign.
