      (Politico) Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday that there shouldn’t be any presidential debates this year between Joe Biden and Donald Trump, adding that the president would debase the debate stage with poor behavior.

      “I don’t think there should be any debates. I do not think that the president of the United States has comported himself in a way that anybody should that has any association with truth, evidence, data and facts,” Pelosi told reporters Thursday.

      “I wouldn’t legitimize a conversation with him nor a debate in terms of the presidency of the United States,” she added.

      Biden and Trump are set to face off during three debates before Election Day, with the first scheduled to take place on Sept. 29 at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland. Pelosi acknowledged that Biden, who has expressed excitement for facing the president, didn’t share her view on the debate. But she still told reporters about her personal distaste for Trump’s past debate performances.

      She’s afraid. She may have good reason to be afraid that Biden will completely blow it. She certainly doesn’t care about Trump making a fool of himself. Personally, I want to see the debates because they will graphically illustrate just how low American politics has sunk, and there will be plenty of chances to poke fun at both terrible candidates.

      We don’t want the voters to be able to evaluate the candidates for the themselves.

      Uncle Joe will get creamed. This may be the one time I would watch the debates.

      Trump is running circles around Biden as many expected but Pelosi and company will blame Russia, Jill Stein and Bernie for the loss, again.

      I was outraged how scared the dems are and how stupid they think everyone is. I went to the video comments section to see if others were as angry as I was and they turned the comments off. And I literally laughed because it still answered my question. Biden is going to lose and it may be a landslide. This Dem party has completely changed for the worst. And they sicken me. I never thought I would ever say/type those words in my life.

       I have been predicting that Biden will not debate since late June.

      Don’t get me wrong as I do not watch them anyhow BUT Pelosi & her friends in the DNC selected him against our wishes and now they are ready to concede right now instead of having a debate?

      What do they want from us – a vote – well they are not going to get any this way. No wonder there are so many Rs switching parties.

      The establishment candidate refuses to debate his challenger, who hires people to follow him around in chicken suits demanding a debate. He finally caves, and ends up getting trounced. I can easily see Trump doing something like that if Biden refuses to debate him, and it would work, too.

      @ohiobarbarian Of course, that would require him to be around, not just in his basement —

      The ongoing effort by democrats to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory continues apace.

      All governments lie to their citizen's, but only Americans believe theirs.

      Either the Democrats never had any intention of winning, or the fix is in for the voting, and there is no point in possibly having the dreadful optics of Biden losing track of things forever enshrined  on Youtube.
