    Will Joe Biden Debate Donald Trump? (Reader Poll)

    Will Joe Biden Debate Donald Trump? (Reader Poll)

    Team Biden undoubtedly is polling and focus-grouping whether the damage from bailing out outweighs the potential damage from Biden appearing disoriented and diminished during three 90-minute debates.

    The Great Debate is whether Joe Biden will debate Donald Trump in the series of three debates currently suggested.

    While insisting that Biden “looks forward” to debating, you can see the seeds of an excuse being planted, centered around Trump allegedly abusing the debate process AND the coronavirus making travel and appearances risky to health.

    I laid out the Democrat concerns in Dems fear Biden would blow it all by debating Trump.

    It’s all but certain that Team Biden or their consultants are feverishly polling and focus grouping how much damage will be done to Biden if he either backs out, or imposes conditions to which he knows Trump would not agree (e.g., wearing of masks if the debate is in-person, or doing the debate remotely via video link). That damage will be weighed against the potential damage from Biden appearing disoriented and diminished during three 90-minute debates.

    Joe Biden did okay in the primary debates because he was limited to very short segments, with so many other people on the stage to take up time. But 90 minutes is a really long time. Even sympathetic questioners can’t stop Trump from attacking Biden directly.

    So, will Biden debate Trump?

    Biden would only ‘debate’ with an ear-feed for his handlers to instruct him what to say. It’s way beyond is capability to engage in a give and take with any Republican political leader, let alone Donald Trump. Biden suffers from dementia, everyone knows it.

      Ear feeds will only complicate and muddle poor Joe. Dementia does not allow what one hears to be independent of the process of simultaneously forming the use of those words, at best his responses are complicated by mixed processing of information. The KISS approach is always the best as too many words have no association to the current reality. One of the tells which Biden’s handlers have accommodated is the “Sun Down” part of his day which is why sometimes he seems more cognizant than many he is found flailing for just not the correct word…it’s any word. There is no avoidance to when “Sun Down” periods become “Sun Down to Sun Rise” days and is no longer Dementia but Alzheimer’s..

    He may be on he debate stage, standing at a lectern, but that’s not the same as actually debating.

    “C’mon, man!”

    Biden will back out of the debates, somehow blaming it all on Trump.
    Trump will goad Gropey Joe into saying something stupid like how he’d beat the dog faced pony soldier stuffing out of Trump behind the wood shed….

    Highlights from some of the times Biden was “allowed” to wing it on his own. Isolation, esp. with Dementia, will not serve him well when he HAS to become the Public Face of the Democrat candidate for President of the United States.

    Likely, Biden will wear his black face mask and an in-ear speaker. His microphone will be off. Responses will be played back from off stage, and he’ll be told to move his head when he hears the voice in his ear.
