Liberals want to protect slow Joe by cancelling the next two debates
The fist two issues debated last night — Roe v Wade and healthcare — are human rights matters, and Joe Biden should have owned them.
Biden was absent, not in the moment, and when presented with Trump's false claim that his nominee to the United States Supreme Court, Judge Amy Coney Barrett, has "unknown" views and intentions on Roe, Biden was silent.
No empathy with a woman's right to choose, no soliloquy on the question of women's health. No declaration of Barrett's record.
Here's the transcript of the end of the exchange on Roe:
President Donald J. Trump: You don’t know her view on Roe V. Wade? You don’t know here view.
Chris Wallace: Well, all right. All right. Let’s talk. We’ve got a lot to unpack here, gentlemen. We’ve got a lot of time. On healthcare, and then we’ll come back to Roe V. Wade.
Vice President Joe Biden: All right.
Trump later continued his love affair with white supremacists and police, both cut from the same cloth.
Trump was loud, abrasive and discourteous.
Joe Biden was no match in this rhetorical theater.
If Biden is elected president, corporate America will be running the show.
Joe Biden will remain a figurehead resembling the character in Weekend at Bernie's (Kotcheff, 1989) more than a president with the knowledge and determination to protect American families.
Led by CNN, liberal pundits are calling for the next two debates to be cancelled, lest Biden be revealed again as a befuddled, kindly old man who stumbled onto the Democratic Party nomination.
