    My wife just told me that Biden’s people pulled him out of future debates, true?

    Haven't seen anything in the Twitterverse about it...

    He'd be crazy to skip any of them.

    Stormy would provide a better show than Biden

    Not yet, looks like they're trying to get Trump to pull the plug by putting an over-ride on his mic so the pro-Biden moderator can silence Trump at any time.

    Like I said in another thread, if Trump's scrappy street-fighter style was hurting him politically the lefties would be more than happy to let him keep going. As it is I'm seeing all the never-Trumper types claiming the debate was a "travesty" and that the "mean orange guy has to be made to stop" (translation: Trump won).

    Only criticism I have of Trump's debate performance was that he was too restrained and respectful of his opponents, Biden and Wallace.

    Well said. This isn't the time for decorum. Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead. Fight like your life depends on it.

    Finally made 1000 posts
    Even die hard Trump supporters I know said the debate was a train wreck. If Biden's campaign has any sense, they will pull out. Trump acted like an ass and a bully (from what Trump supporters I work with say) so why would Biden give him a chance to act presidential, logical, and in command of the issues?

    Great post.

    Amazing the number of Never Trumpers and concern trolls on a gun forum telling us Trump blew the debate. Well, he "blew" all the Hillary debates too.

    See how far acting "Presidential" gets you when it is two against one and against people who don't respect the office.

    They never talk about how frail Biden is which is odd considering he wants to start a new job that ages you greatly.

    Of course a Harris-Biden win means certain New York style gun control or worse but at that point the Never Trumpers will vanish.

    Old Joe Biden doesn't need to show-up. The so called "moderators" will do his job for him and do it better.

    But, but, but... If Biden won so conivibgly why wouldn't they want to display his incredible skill twice more? With even freindlier "moderators" no less...

    Hmmmm

    Sadly, Trump gave him an easy excuse. "He talked over me, resorted to name calling" etc. It will sell to his followers.

    What name calling from Trump? I heard Biden calling Trump names. Clown, fool. Heard Biden say "will you shut up" and "shut your trap." Trump was too aggressive with the interrupting, but the low grade invective all came from Biden.

    Since all the legitimate polls have Trump destroying Biden in the first debate, they would be foolish to let him back in the ring with the President.

    Exactly right.

    If Harris/Biden wins, particularly if its by the mail-in vote fraud that it looks like the dems are planning to perpetrate, then America will be fully transformed from the best and freest Republic the world has ever known to a nasty little tin-pot dictatorship like California or Venezuela.

    This is not the time to be worried about hurting the feelings of snowflakes, it is the time to convince the great Silent Majority in states like TX, WI, AZ, and FL that their wealth, their freedom, and ultimately their lives depend on Trump beating the leftists.

    PS I see there's another article by NeverTrumper George "I'm With Her" Will to the effect that the "debates must be stopped", which further reinforces my opinion that Trump won the debate. A quick check of the record shows that G.Will has been writing a series of articles advising Harris/Biden on who their cabinet picks should be, as well as his thoughts on their foreign policy priorities..... Looks like he's sucking up to 'em before they've even stolen the election.

    I have heard that he is pulling out of future debates this morning. Nothing in a formal statement from the Biden campaign just the media rumors.

    Which I am guessing they are counting the poll effect of just rumoring his not going to future debates before they make the formal decision.

    G, Will should go back and write books about baseball again. These deceivers of democracy are not fooling anyone, except those who are already blind.

    There are questions that Biden should answer. The antifa question, the loading of the SCOUS question, the two new states question, Law and order questions, Raising taxes question, SS, medicare, Health insurance to name just a few.
    You can be sure the moderator will not challenge Biden on these questions, So Trump will and that is when his MIC will be shut off.
