Biden "Accepts" Offer to Debate, With Special Conditions to Protect Biden; Trump, for Some Lunatic Reason, Accepts His Terms

Your first offer is accepted without reservations!

This guy wrote The Art of the Deal?

President Joe Biden has finally agreed to participate in debates with former President Donald Trump, two months after refusing Trump's open challenge to debate "Anytime, anywhere, anyplace." The decision comes amid Biden's cratering poll numbers in swing-states, though the Biden camp's proposal comes with significant guardrails for the gaffe-prone president.

Key Details:

The Biden-Harris campaign proposed the debates in a letter to the bipartisan Commission on Presidential Debates, breaking the tradition of three fall meetings organized by the commission.

The proposed dates for the debates are in late June and early September, with a vice presidential debate to occur in late July.

The Biden proposal includes specific conditions such as no audience, no interruptions from Trump while Biden is speaking, and only Biden-friendly news outlets can moderate.


The Biden-Harris campaign's proposal for the debates was outlined in a letter to the bipartisan Commission on Presidential Debates. This move breaks away from the decades-old tradition of three fall meetings organized by the debate commission. The first debate is proposed to be in late June, after Trump's New York criminal trial is likely to be over and after Biden returns from meeting with world leaders at the G7 Summit. A second presidential debate would occur in September prior to the beginning of early voting. The campaign also proposed a vice presidential debate to occur in late July after the Republicans nominate their vice presidential candidate.

However, the Biden proposal includes some significant guardrails for the gaffe-prone president. These include no audience, no interruptions from Trump while Biden is speaking, and only Biden-friendly news outlets can moderate (CBS, ABC, CNN, or Telemundo).

Telemundo? Fantastic.

Trump, who has been vocal about his readiness to debate Biden, responded to the proposal on Truth Social Wednesday morning, saying, "It's time for a debate so that he can explain to the American People his highly destructive Open Border Policy, new and ridiculous EV Mandates, the allowance of Crushing Inflation, High Taxes, and his really WEAK Foreign Policy, which is allowing the World to 'Catch on Fire.'"

I've got a bad feeling about this. Chris Wallace did a lot to hurt Trump. The leftwing media is salivating to do that again, even harder this time.

Trump doesn't even need these debates -- Biden needs them. So Trump had all the leverage to set terms.

Instead, he let Biden set the terms. Trump will be debating CNN, CBS, and Telemundo more than Biden. They won't let Trump engage with Biden and will answer on behalf of Biden at every turn.



Reading Trump's Truth Social post, it sounds like he is only agreeing to the time. Where is it that he agrees to the other conditions? Trump clearly says he prefers a large venue (i.e. a big audience).

Well, let's hope. But this is being posted on MXM News, a Trump-friendly outfit.
