After agreeing to two debates with Biden, Donald Trump seems to be trying to set up an excuse to escape the whole thing.

Those debates aren't really worth watching. Trump will do his usual, which is talk over someone else's time, continually playing wounded duck, ignoring questions to state his own talking points. Even though they will supposedly have mic shutoffs for when it's the other's turn, that won't shut Trump up. Biden will also ignore the questions to state his own talking points. This isn't a debate, it's two people there to push their own brands and the questions are the excuse to have their own time to do so.

wow....call me Nostradamus

At @ 10:00 CST I wrote the following on another blog.

--"My prediction is, the Biden campaign is going to continue to tack conditions onto the debate to the point where Trump backs out. Then claim Trump won't debate.
Unusual for an incumbent to want to debate so badly. A true sign of desperation."

Ummm, asking for a third debate is weaseling out of the first 2 he agreed to? The people who follow these sights are retarded. That would be you QCP.

The demented, diaper-wearing orange gash won't testify or debate because he's a pathetic coward.

It's the New Republic....

Media Bias / Fact Check rates them as left biased....placed almost on the arrow on the left designated as far left...
as left can get ...so this accusation is no surprise.

LEFT BIASED...." These media sources are moderately to strongly biased toward liberal causes through story selection and/or political affiliation. They may utilize strong loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes), publish misleading reports and omit reporting of information that may damage liberal causes.
Some sources in this category may be untrustworthy."

What a joke. This is straight news reporting ending with a speculative opinion. Trump accepted Biden's terms and this is how the offer was made:

"President Biden made his terms clear for two one-on-one debates, and Donald Trump accepted those terms. No more games. No more chaos, no more debate about debates. We'll see Donald Trump on June 27th in Atlanta - if he shows up,"
Trump accepted the terms (2 debates) and later went on TS and posted this:
Please let the TRUTH represent that I hereby accept debating Crooked Joe Biden on FoxNews. The date will be Wednesday October 2nd. ...
Biden isn't debating on Fox because that isn't the agreement.

And this is precisely why the article deduces that by throwing this 3rd debate into the mix it gives Trump a rationale to nix the other 2 debates if he doesn't get his way.

There's no left or right bias here whatsoever.

So, Biden offered to have two 1-1.debates and set all of the terms:

No audience
He picked the dates
Mics muted while the other is speaking (I actually like this one and feel it should have been implemented long ago)
Only on Biden friendly. See outlets

And the Trump team immediately agreed. Now Trump Team accepted a platform for a 3rd debate ... and that somehow translates to he will try to back out of the other 2? Maybe he will, but this is pure conjecture.

What additional conditions were imposed upon the two debates by the Biden campaign after fmr Pres Trump and Pres Biden agreed to them?

Please be specific, with links.

thx.

Perhaps. But it's a conjecture based on Trump's documented history.

"Donald Trump has a long history of playing games with debates: complaining about the rules, breaking those rules, pulling out at the last minute, or not showing up at all - which he's done repeatedly in all three cycles he's run for president," said Biden's reelection campaign chair, Jen O'Malley Dillon, in a statement.

Did the trump campaign "accept" a third debate, or did the Trump campaign "propose" a third debate?

If Donald's fear of personal humiliation outstrips his need to brad he won't debate.

DJT is a shallow human being whom is easy to know and, in this case of Dark Brandon baiting his ego, manipulate.

Donald Trump is a dishrag waiting for someone to wring him out. If America doesn't allow Biden to do it then Russia will.

Zed, do you seriously think Biden can stand up for 2 hours without a teleprompter and win a debate against anyone?
If Trump is agreeing to two debates with liberal moderators under Biden's rules why won't Biden agree to one debate with conservative moderators?

I just hope CNN and ABC don't make the entire debates about abortion and J6, they will sink themselves even further.

Dark Brandon cornered Trump with a simple middle school taunt. Trump is not a bright man. He is an emotional man within a very narrow range. Moreover, everyone knows all of his emotional triggers by now. If Trump debates live he'll end up looking like and behaving like a howler monkey.

@#17 ... If Trump is agreeing to two debates with liberal moderators under Biden's rules ...

What we know, and don't know, about the presidential debates
apnews.com

... The Biden and Trump teams accepted the invitations from ABC and CNN after the Biden campaign proposed that the debates this year be hosted by any broadcast organization that hosted a Republican primary debate in 2016 and a Democratic primary debate in 2020. In that event, "neither campaign can assert that the sponsoring organization is obviously unacceptable: if both candidates have previously debated on their airwaves, then neither could object to such venue."

Those criteria would eliminate Fox News, which did not host a Democratic primary debate in 2020, and NBC News, which did not host a GOP one in 2016 -- though its corporate affiliates CNBC and Telemundo were co-hosts of one debate each that year. ...

MAGA convinces me daily that they don't, or refuse to, see and understand what is smacking you in the face. Wild turkeys have much better perception ans sense than you.

Joe Biden works out almost every day along with riding his road bike.

Donald Trump waddles from shot to shot on his golf courses, only lifting his ------- from his souped-up golf cart between shots. And he guzzles Diet Cokes on a daily basis as his drink of choice.

He currently is unable to keep his eyes open for one single hour while sitting in a courtroom on trial for dozens of criminal violations.

You tell me who's more likely to last 2 hours under television lights based on their current physical conditions and health regimens.

And let's not forget that fairly soon when Trump stoops to calling the President "crooked Joe", Biden will likely be able to reply by rightfully calling him "convicted felon Donald".

I'm not sure either one of them can do it very well.

My question is who can stand up at a podium for two hours, under hot lights, without squirming to hold back malodorous diarrhea squirts?

WHEW! ~

My guess is Trump won't try to back out of either debate. He'll try to use Biden's refusal of a 3rd debate 3 debates is a tradition going back decades) as a cudgel to label Biden as a coward. Would such a strategy be effective? No idea, but if I were his advisor that's the strategy I'd recommend.

#17 do you really believe p0113 can go fifteen minutes without lying, whining or babbling incoherently?
That's a good thirteen minutes longer than he's ever been able to.
Which is why he's terrified of taking the stand in any of his trials.
