Was it coincidence that Bob Woodward’s book appeared before the first debate? No, it was really a trap that fed into a Biden narrative that Trump is responsible for all the deaths caused by the virus. Joe claimed that fallacy in an interview with Anderson Cooper, of course, with zero fact checking by CNN.
Was it coincidence that the New York Times printed what they claim was the president’s federal tax returns right before the debate? Again not likely. It was another trap set for Trump to give Biden some deflecting talking points.
When you have 47 years in government, like Joe, there’s a lot to hide, at least in his case. His opposition to desegregating Delaware schools, his gloating about locking up “superpredators” and his denying he threatened a Ukrainian official who was allowing an investigation into his son’s shady dealings were a few Joe didn’t want to discuss. So Woodward and the Times provided old Joe with much needed help.
Going into the debate, Trump’s plan was clear. You may not like it but it got Joe to state “he is the Democrat Party right now.” Really? Tell Bernie, AOC and the street thugs that have burned so many cities that all they worked to achieve: the Green New Deal, the neutering of law enforcement and trillions in free stuff aren’t part of the “Joe Biden Party” New Deal.
Joe also would not state if he agreed with ending the filibuster and packing the Supreme Court with leftist justices to undo conservative appointments. His argument was that it would give Trump taking points. Really? Joe actually gave Trump the issue or taking point he wanted-a candidate hiding his schemes from voters because he knows they are unpopular. But isn’t that what Biden accused Trump of doing?
What really should be discussed was not Joe’s childish name calling, but something that may have been lost in the back and forth bickering. When Trump asked if Joe stood for law and order, Joe answered he “believed in law.” You may not have heard it.
Liberal subjective media will go on for days over Trump’s statements about Proud Boys and the like, but they will not mention that Joe never said he was for “order.” There was a reason for that and the Antifa crowd knows exactly where Joe stands on maintaining or not maintaining order. Joe is a denier when it comes to domestic terrorists unless you mean militias. He will never denounce Antifa, only deny they exist. That should tell you it may not really be the Joe Biden Party after all. That should tell you what America might look like if Joe is elected president.
Now the media are pushing Joe not to debate again. They can all declare he won and leave it at that. He can go back into hiding. The bar was set so low for Joe a turtle could have gotten over. So the fact he didn’t collapse needing oxygen was their win. They can all smugly agree and that settles it.
The debates likely didn’t change many views on the two candidates last night. What happened will need time to sink in. The left should have issues with Joe over his statement, “I’m the Democrat Party now!” If they don’t then it will be crystal clear. They know than can control him no matter what he says. And that’s as bad as any Russian influence could ever be.
