I wouldnt be surprised if debates dont happen this year. Because, you know, COVID or some other excuse
Hidin Biden doesn’t have any say in it. He will do as he is told. I can’t see any actual face to face debates happening.
No way will he dare to share the stage with the President.
The Dems will demand virtual debates. Trump will refuse.
Listening to Biden stumble is painful. I can’t believe the Democrats are letting him represent them. I know they did it to get rid of Sanders, but at least Sanders could speak coherently.
Wheres a good ventriloquist when you need one.
I think the Dems will push for a debate via Skype or zoom (or whatever it is kids use to talk over computers). So he can stay in his basement and his helpers can feed him answers off screen.
In debates they are spaced more than 6 feet apart and away form the moderators. So covid-19 can’t really be used as an excuse for not having a debate.
There will be debates between Trump and Biden. I doubt they shake hands. :-)
There were some who said Hillary Clinton would be replaced before November and that she couldn’t possibly debate Trump on her feet for 2 hours. They were were all proven wrong.
Actual debates only help the challenger to the incumbent. If Joe Biden is too incompetent to come face to face with President Trump, or will show very badly in any event, this becomes a forfeit. While not exactly a win, it is not a loss either.
One is reminded of a sweating and visibly ill Richard Nixon facing a fresh and exuberant John F. Kennedy. On points of debate, Nixon won the arguments presented, but lost on the overall scoring by the American public, and the media.
The demonrats have already started talking about making the debates in remote locations, meaning Slo-Joe would be somewhere else.
That way they could feed him answers with a teleprompter so he wouldn’t look so stupid.
One thing is certain, no way will they let that house plant debate Trump!
they want virtual debates, so that they can more easily feed him the answers through an ear piece.
I hope Biden wears a mask and Trump doesnt
Most likely doesn’t even know who he is or where he is at. Any “statement” from demented joe comes from his worthless, mentally-challenged, integrity-free staff. How far the election process has fallen. Pathetic doesn’t begin to describe it.
Trump asked for 6 live debates. The Biden team at this time agreed to 3. But look for them to back off and make them cyber debates with Biden wearing an ear plug so he can repeat the words piped into him on the plug. This will be one of those rare elections that anyone who votes for Biden the tree stump will not be voting for him but against his opponent
Trump should agree to pre announced questions now so It is harder for Biden to quit.
If Biden wears a mask, they can have a Biden-sounding impersonator do the talking and answer the questions from behind stage and sound intelligent
Kind of like the Andy Griffith community-choir episode where a talented singer sang for Barney Fife from offstage (tone-deaf Barney thought it was his own voice amplified by the microphone)
He’s agreed to three is what I heard.
If its remote and Biden wears a mask, they can have somebody else do the talking for him - a Biden voice impersonator - from offstage.
He spends so much time in quarantine that Im beginning to believe he may have covid.
Neither side has anything to gain from debates so if Biden doesn't find a way not to participate in one - and as you pointed out Covid is a handy excuse - I think Trump's campaign will. He's already talked about not participating because of media bias in the moderators. That would still work.
