Nancy Pelosi Advises Joe Biden to Skip Presidential Debates: Don’t ‘Legitimize a Conversation’ with Trump
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) believes that former vice president and Democrat presidential contender Joe Biden should cancel scheduled debates with President Donald Trump.
“I, myself, just – don’t tell anybody I told you this, especially don’t tell Joe Biden – I don’t think there should be any debates,” Pelosi said to the press, trying and failing to be cutesy with her comments.
She continued to stammer out a response that encouraged Biden to avoid having a presidential debate with Trump.
“I do not think that the President of the United States has comported himself in a way that anybody should and has any association with truth, evidence, data and facts. I wouldn’t…I wouldn’t legitimize a conversation with him,” Pelosi said.

As the date of the first scheduled presidential debate grows closer, Democrats are growing increasingly nervous about the prospect of Biden taking on Trump in a head-to-head showdown with his declining mental faculties.
Big League Politics has reported on how Biden is apparently unable to do physical campaigning due to his rapidly deteriorating condition:
A Joe Biden spokesman attacked President Donald Trump for daring to plan in-person campaign events in four crucial swing states, suggesting that the President was irresponsible for daring to appear in person in American communities just months before the Presidential election.
A rapid response spokesman for President Trump hit back, questioning if Biden is even up to the premise of meeting American voters in a physical, campaign-style fashion.
The four campaign stops are slated for the states of Arizona, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. It appears as if the events will be held with strict social distancing rules, raising questions as to why the Biden campaign sees it to be appropriate to shame the notion of in-person campaigning.
The Biden campaign has spoken against the premise of postponing the election for safety purposes, an argument that seems reasonable enough. They’d be wise to consider that electoral campaigning is just as much of an integral element of the democratic process as election day is, and that it shouldn’t be merely silenced.
As Biden patiently waits in his basement in anticipation of an easy November election victory delivered from the mainstream media, his suggestion that in-person campaigning is off limits raises serious questions about his ability to govern as President.
The first presidential debate is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, Sept. 29 in Cleveland. However, the Biden campaign may figure out a way to worm out of their commitment beforehand.
