Suddenly Dems Want to SCRAP Presidential DEBATES! Ha!

“Whatever you do,” CNN’s Joe Lockhart, who served as President Bill Clinton’s press secretary, advised Joe Biden last week, “don’t debate” President Trump.
Dem strategist Zac Petkanas argues: “This is not a normal presidential election, and Trump is not a legitimate candidate” and so doesn’t deserve a debate. (Never mind that Trump won an overwhelming majority of electoral votes.)
Recall how in one debate answer on segregation, Biden meandered through a reply that mentioned his wife and former wife; said we must “make sure that every single child does, does in fact, have 3-, 4- and 5-year-olds go to school [sic]”; and insisted social workers help parents raise kids.
He added: “Play the radio. Make sure the television — excuse me, make sure you have the record player on at night.” He ended with a discussion of Venezuela.
Look, the 77-year-old Biden is famous for his gaffes, incoherent sentences, contradictions and non-sequiturs. It’s why his cognitive state has become an issue.
Fact is, Dems would never call for scrapping debates if their nominee were a gifted orator. Yet if Biden can’t be trusted in front of a TV camera, how on earth can he be trusted to run the country?
