Nancy Pelosi: “I don’t think there should be any debates”

Nancy Pelosi: “I don’t think there should be any debates”

“So, if Joe Biden asked you what I thought about it, I don’t think that he should dignify that conversation with Donald Trump.”

During her weekly press conference, Speaker Nancy Pelosi began laying the groundwork for Biden to back out of the upcoming presidential debates.

Thursday, Pelosi said, “Don’t tell anybody I told you this.. Especially don’t tell Joe Biden. But I don’t think there should be any debates.”

Watch:

Pelosi went on to discuss how debating Trump would legitimize his lack of use of “truth, evidence, data, and facts” and then paved the way for two separate conversations.

What she said:

“I wouldn’t legitimize a conversation with him nor a debate in terms of the presidency of the United States. Now I know that the Biden campaign thinks in a different way, but I thought what he did in 2016 was disgraceful, stalking Hillary Clinton like that. I was disappointed that the press didn’t say, “Go back to your station! You’re not here, you don’t own this stage, you have your own podium, she has hers.” I think he’ll probably act in a way that is beneath the dignity of the presidency. He does that every day. I think he will also belittle what the debates are supposed to be about and they’re not to be about the skullduggery on the part of someone who has no respect for the office he holds, much less the democratic process. Why else would he try to undermine the election in the manner in which he is doing?

So, if Joe Biden asked you what I thought about it, I don’t think that he should dignify that conversation with Donald Trump. You can ask any questions — both of them — just take their own stage for any number of conversations about any subjects. Hold them accountable. What are they proposing? What is their vision? What is their knowledge? How are they going to get it done? How are they going to connect with the American people? Let that be a conversation with the American people, not an exercise in skullduggery.”

Shameless.

Now wouldn’t it be up to the viewer to make the determination whether they thought Trump or Biden were speaking the truth, presenting facts, and using sufficient data and evidence in their responses?

    Have you noticed that the New Media and increasingly,the Old Media, preface their “stories” with “What you need to know about……” This is why the uncritical thinking public is acting more and more like they are being led by a ring in their nose.

“Now don’t tell anybody I told you this” . The clarion call for the “media” to harangue the public with reasons?? to cancel the debates.

Nasty Nancy needs to lay off the Grey Goose for a while. Perhaps drying out would help her delusions.

Nancy is truly a silly old woman. While she is entitled to her opinions, she is not entitled to her own set of “facts”.

“Go back to your station! You’re not here, you don’t own this stage, you have your own podium, she has hers.”

This is one of PDJT’s strengths. He’s the President, and he’ll be President his own way, not the failed old Washington way. I think presidents usually start out like that, but let Tip O’Neil’s ghost browbeat them into submission. But from where I’m sitting, Trump seems immune to Potomac swamp malaise.

    The one thing he wants above all looking like he’s “winning.”

    The one thing he can’t get working with them is anything that looks like a win.

    If Biden can’t handle Trump on an American stage in front of American press, how is he going to handle muh Russia? Or muh North Korea, China, Iran, or the Duchy of Grand Fenwick?

    Does Nancy plan to sit by the red phone and answer it with, “I’m sorry, you can’t speak to Joe right now, he’s taking his nap?”

President Trump should debate an empty chair if Biden doesn’t show.

I didn’t think that Trump stalked Clinton at the townhall debate. He was standing by his chair and Clinton was the one moving around in front of Trump. The camera angles shortened up the distance, similar to those “crowded” beach scenes.

I called this months ago. Hidn Biden. Imagine the noise if President Trump tried to back out!

There’s always been a significant number of people that want to be lied to – for reasons innumerable – and this time it’s Pelosi who is enabling that process.

    B&D clubs don’t fill themselves.

    I was going to add, nobody’s forcing anybody to go there, but then I reconsidered for many of the patrons that would comprise much of the thrill.

As has been pointed out so many places, if Pelosi thought Biden would do well in a debate against Trump, Pelosi would be for even more debates.

Stated another way, Pelosi figures Biden will fail terribly in any debate.

Seeing how Biden’s brain isn’t working there is no way he can debate Trump and no unfriendly media will be allowed to question him either. The media and the Biden campaign will work to protect Biden in order to hide his lack of a brain and to conceal his plans as President.

“Losing 2020, or How I Stopped Worrying and Love PDJT.” A book nancy pelosi and the democrats seem to be writing. On the cover nancy is riding the nuke down to ground zero, swinging her martini glass over her head, pieces of torn SOTU flying out of her pantsuit.

Democracy dies in Joe Biden’s basement.

The first debate will start with Kamala walking onto the stage. Her premise, “I am ready from day one, let me show you”. She then berates Trump for the next 90 minutes. If Trump walks out, “what, you can not deal with a strong woman?”

She’ll be at a disadvantage in any debate with Pence…..coming out wearing her knee pads won’t work.

Funny, Trump starts talking about drug testing prior to the debates and the Dims suddenly ratchet-up their talk about not having any debates.

LOL, what have they got Gropey Joe jacked up on to hide his dementia? The voters want to know.

“But I don’t think there should be any debates.”

If she had stopped after the 4th word in that sentence, I’d be in complete agreement with her.

We knew this was coming. Usually a challenger can’t wait to debate an incumbent, but when the challenger has dementia …. Pelosi is afraid that Biden will be asked some tough questions, like what office are you running for. Senator from North Carolina, we all know that.

Question: can a man be elected president campaigning from his basement with pre-recorded messages (32 takes carefully spliced together)?

lord–what a total and complete disregard for the electorate–” since we don’t want to reveal the obvious incapacity of biden for the office, we’ve decided there will be no debates “–what an imperious wench she is–we need to reelect PDJT, retain the senate and take back the house–pelosi is at least 30 yrs past her ” sell by ” date–she may have sunk even lower than clinton in her ethics and delusions

    If such an action is even possible…

    We need to have a post from LI where we can suggest which candidates (senate & house) that need financial support.

    I’ll offer House District #5 for Oklahoma. It was R but switched to D in 2018. The R really didn’t campaign, thinking he had it sewn up. So, we have Kendra Horn (D) who campaigned to be moderate, but really has followed the D basic line.

    A state senator, Stephanie Bice, won a runoff election on Tuesday. I’ve already increased my donation to her campaign.

    Another good option is John James, a candidate for MI Senate seat. https://johnjamesforsenate.com/

    BTW, when I donate to an out-of-state candidate, I always send an email to state why I supported the candidate and while I am not in their state, their vote is important to me. I then list my needs (1A, 2A, economy, borders, etc.).

    So, who else is a good candidate for some of my money?

Plus, notice who is giving a “rebuttal” speech of sorts today to counter Trump’s speech this evening? Harris.

In 2008 the media was falling all over itself comparing Palin’s qualifications to Obama’s even though it was McCain who was the POTUS candidate, and finding everything they could about her. Now we have a situation in which the VP candidate is the de facto presidential candidate and the media is cheering her on, without bothering to find out everything they can about her because it’s not necessary.

Pelosi just admitted that Biden’s current mental state will prevent him from competing successfully with Trump in a debate.

No doubt she would like to keep him hidden in the basement, only giving prepared speeches and answering softball questions from his CNN advocates.

“You can ask any questions — both of them — just take their own stage for any number of conversations about any subjects.”

This is what I predicted. If the Communists were to allow Biden to “debate” it would only be in separate forums (different TV studios at different times and neither broadcast live) where it would be recorded and carefully edited by the Joseph Goebbels media to achieve the desired political effect.

The only other possibility is to have both candidates on the stage and an audience consisting entirely of Antifa/BLM browshirts, who would then disrupt the debate through violence before it even started. But the optics of that might make the Communists look bad.

.
Political debates are the American way.

A “leader” of the Democrats wants NO debates.

Therefore, this “leader” is UNAMERICAN.

Makes sense.

Do we really need a Speaker of the House ?
Let her go home and eat her ice cream.

C’mon, Nan. What are you afraid of?

Heh, heh.
.

Wow- his dementia must be getting pretty bad.

The awful thing about it is, they have no strong contenders to step in. This is literally the best they’ve got.

I think he will also belittle what the debates are supposed to be about and they’re not to be about the skullduggery on the part of someone who has no respect for the office he holds, much less the democratic process.

We already know what Harris thinks debates are supposed to be about — saying whatever you think will get you an advantage, without any regard for its truth or falsity. Pence should hammer her with that one, if they debate.

I don’t think there should be any Nancys.

As far as I am concerned, Trump and Biden can be in separate sound stages or studios, simulcast live. There is no need for them to share the same physical space and air. That way, Trump cannot physically threaten Biden, which Pelosi seems to fear (although Biden is NOT really subject to intimidation — he would challenge Trump to fight or to a push-up contest).

But we need the two of them to go head to head and toe-to-toe in a debate over ideas and policies. And for Kameltoe and Pence to do the same.

    What’s the point? It’d be like demanding that water prove that it’s wet.

I see Nancy is all for keeping Basement Joe in his basement, and bring up that bs about DJT ‘stalking’ Hildabeast in the 2016 debates.

    The Friendly Grizzly in reply to Skip. | August 27, 2020 at 8:31 pm

    Mr. Biden – in a rumpr I’m trying to start, said he will switch careers to sports. He has an offer to play First Basement for the Baltimore Aureoles.

I don’t think there should be any pelosi. Ever.

Pelosi is an embarrasment.

Leftist don’t want debates because they can’t win. They can only win when they control the conversation.

I don’t think there should be a Nancy Pelosi.
