And so it begins ...

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi suggested Thursday that former Vice President Joe Biden cancel his three scheduled debates with President Trump because the commander-in-chief would "belittle" the forum and engage in "skullduggery."

"I don't think that there should be any debates," Pelosi said out of the blue at a news conference at the Capitol, saying she doesn't want the debates to be "an exercise in skullduggery."

Michael Ahrens, communications director for the Republican National Committee, said Democratic leaders are advising Biden to not debate, not to leave the basement and not to concede. "Odd way to project confidence in your nominee," he tweeted.

I'm familiar with Political Science, And the Democrats have gone to far to the left. Sleepy JOE has a vary slim chance. And yes there will be hanky panky,on the Left with votes .THE Rioting sunk the Democrats .ENJOY THE SHOW

I mean, I see Nancy's point. Trump is gonna drown us all in bullshit. His responses to any challenges will simply be "Wrong". And all the dimwits will cheer.

Biden is a better debater.

It's a rope a dope.

Trump rarely fights men and his debate tactics are mostly name calling.

Talk trash on Joe all you want but he's done it for 40 years. I think it might be time that somebody FINALLY stands up to the bully.

What will be funny though is to see how much Adderal Trump will have taken before the debate. Will it be another sniff fest?

So that bloody old gash Pelosi wants Biden to chicken out.
Not surprised.
They are hiding the drooling old fool as long as possible.

Everyone knows the Dems are becoming desperate and nervous because Trump is quickly catching Biden in the polls. They need to figure out a way to cheat, since the party has lost all integrity with the false charges aimed at Trump and his staff for four years. They will stop at nothing and believe the end justifies any means to regain the White House.

It's lights out unless Biden shows he can think on his feet, answer tough questions from reporters and go toe-to-toe with Trump. The Durham Report and the Republican Convention might be the final nail in Biden's coffin. Most blacks are not enthused about Kamala Harris, whose relative owned 200 slaves in Jamaica in the late 1800s, and like how Trump lowered black unemployment to record lows. Ironically, Obama still holds records for high black unemployment.

The media insist that back muggers, killers and looters are innocent until proven guilty, but are even more insistent that police officers, men accused of sexual assault and 17 year olds defending themselves against Antifa thugs are guilty unless proven innocent beyond the slightest shadow of doubt.

Biden couldn't beat his way out of a wet paper sack even if it was named Corn Pop. He the biggest nothing that the libtards had put up since Carter. Debate or not he's dead meat. He will get slaughtered on the violence in Demonrat run shitholes alone. The rest will just be window dressing.

Maybe they should dress him up like Beetle Bailey and put him in a tank like they did Dukakis. Show everybody he's a real tough guy! 🤣

The 17 year old kid is a bad ass.

He single-handed shut down the riot and took out three felons who were rioting on behalf of the Marxist Democrat Party.

The best was he took out the Democrat felon that was a child molester.

CNN and the Democrat Party are trying to make the child molester out to be a martyr. Democrats and CNN are sickos and deviants.
