Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, October 19, 2020

In a letter on Monday marked by exaggeration and partisan invective, Mr. Trump's campaign manager, Bill Stepien, asked the Commission on Presidential Debates to refocus Thursday's debate on the subject of foreign policy, rather than the six subjects announced last week by the moderator, Kristen Welker of NBC. A Biden spokesman, T. J. Ducklo, said that Mr. Stepien had sent the letter "because Donald Trump is afraid to face more questions about his disastrous Covid response."



Admin's note: Participants in this discussion must follow the site's moderation policy. Profanity will be filtered. Abusive conduct is not allowed.

Mr. Stepien " who mockingly referred to the nonpartisan commission as the "Biden Debate Commission" in a tweet " said it had "promised" that the debate would be about foreign policy and accused the group of "pro-Biden antics" that "have turned the entire debate season into a fiasco."

The president's campaign is keen to attack Mr. Biden on Thursday over foreign business deals arranged by one of his sons, Hunter Biden, and Mr. Stepien's letter suggested that the lack of a foreign policy focus would "insulate Biden from his own history." The debate format was announced weeks before a recent spate of stories in The New York Post that have made unverified claims about Hunter Biden.

I wonder how many different ways the debate commission can reply to Trump's 11th hour pathos with variations of "GFY" written in multiple sentences?

Translation: "Can we please stop talking about how much Trump has Effed up the country in four short years and how he has no idea how to stop destroying it in the next four?"

Debate commission to mute Trump, Biden microphones during parts of Thursday debate

The commission said it will give Trump and Biden two minutes apiece to speak uninterrupted at the start of each segment.

Trump's campaign has repeatedly opposed the idea of granting the moderator the power to shut off a candidate's microphone " an idea that has been floated in the aftermath of the first debate, during which Trump repeatedly interrupted and jeered at Biden.

Well, now the odds of Trump dropping out have just increased exponentially.

Chicken Little, only this time he actually got the sky to fall.

Joe shouldn't even show up unless they've agreed to turn off the other mic when one candidate is speaking.
Otherwise it's going to be chaos again, which is what Trump wants... chaos.

I think it still 50-50 whether or not Trump will show up. He would object if the debate topics included phonics, multiplication tables to ten, and baseball stars of the 1950's and 1960's...

Trump is trying to find yet another excuse to refuse to debate Biden.

Perhaps The Donald would also like some cheese with his whine?

All ten "October Surprises" fell flat so maybe this will work. -LOL

In addition, . . .

Now Trump is insisting A.G. Barr appoint a Special Prosecutor to investigate, charge and arrest the whole Biden Family ~ and get it all done in the next two weeks before November 3rd.

So far, A.G. Barr has taken no action, much to the boiling over, desperate, aneurysm-in-waiting anger of Trump.

If I was a betting person I'd wager that Mr. Barr has a different surprise for Donald Trump. HIS RESIGNATION! (before November 3rd)
