so no, he won't debate Joe Biden who is still sharp.

trump may even feel he can bullshit his way through but Steven Miller and the rest of the cabal know if he tries it, that would be the kiss of death for his election chances.

some people believe what they are told to believe and not their own damn eyes.

I know he lost the popular vote. But, still had a ton of votes nonetheless.

Whether tRump is GQP nominee, or third party nominee, or running simply as himself, he will be behind in the better polls that even he will pay attention to. So he will be desperate for any debate.

I'm thinking Biden should debate him at most once and maybe not at all, especially if he is not the nominee of the Grumpy Old People.

The dominoes falling point to Haley being the nominee. Kochs are behind her already along with an ever growing anti-Stanky Republican contingent. He will tank in early spring giving her 6 months to campaign as the reality of his criminality sinks into even the comatose.


DJT is full of shit and a majority of voters know it. Tangerine Taint hasn’t won a single eligible voter since 1/6/21. I call “bullshit.”

Autocrats are trying to save face at this point by framing the narrative as a question of Biden’s emails — er, age.

11. The GOP withdrew from the debate commission last year
Sun Dec 3, 2023, 10:40 AM
Dec 2023

The commission has already set the dates and locations for the 2024 debates. Moderators have not yet been announced.

I expect the Trump campaign will huff and puff and attempt to arrange some kind of “independent” debate with Newsmax, or Steve Bannon or something. If the debates were held today, I don’t think he would show up, but next fall? Hard to say with someone as erratic and unpredictable as Trump.

on Television, if he lived to be 120!

The scumbag has 90+ felony charges, he's clearly mentally ill and incapable of telling the truth, and is a dedicated and life-long vulgarian.
At this point, President Biden would be crazy to lower himself to a shit-show like that. NEVER!

This pump is already being primed in RW media.

Trump will make some weird demand, and when Biden or the sponsors refuse to grant it, TFG will back out, claiming the whole deal is rigged against him.

His handlers know he can’t be trusted, and there are too many inflammatory and contradictory statements that he would have to answer for.
He will make unreasonable demands and use that to avoid a debate.
