Joe Biden’s mind is not what it used to be and everyone knows it.
Over at CNN, analyst Joe Lockhart, who used to be Bill Clinton’s press secretary, is now arguing that Joe Biden should skip the debates with Trump. It’s obvious why he is saying this.
Like all Democrats, he is terrified that the public is going to see Biden melt down in real time.
Democratic strategists and supporters of Vice President Joe Biden are urging him not to debate President Donald Trump in the lead-up to Election Day, citing Trump’s publicity stunts and disregard for the rules in 2016. Meanwhile Biden backers, including some conservatives, applauded the University of Notre Dame and the University of Michigan for cancelling their scheduled debates over COVID-19 concerns.
Former White House Press Secretary Joe Lockhart joined several Democratic Party strategists in bluntly advising Biden, “whatever you do, don’t debate Trump.” Speaking on CNN Saturday, Lockhart said Trump shouldn’t be given another platform which will enable him to “repeat lies,” which he said occurred in the 2016 debates against Hillary Clinton…
“We saw in the debates in 2016 Hillary Clinton showed a mastery of the issues, every point she made was more honest and bested Trump,” Lockhart told CNN. “But Trump came out of the debates doing better I think because he just kept repeating the same old lies: ‘we’re going to build a wall and Mexico is going to pay for it,’ ‘we’re going to keep all those Mexican rapists out of the country,’ and ‘we’re going to make great trade deals’ — none of these things have come to pass.”

Everyone knows what this is really about.
Dems are terrified of letting Joe speak too long. After 5 minutes it’s nothing but the incoherent ramblings you expect to encounter at an old age home for dementia patients.

This is genuinely #hilarious.
They both agree that the performance bar is set SO low for Clueless Joe that all he has to do is show up and not crap himself on stage to outdo expectations … and they're both STILL worried about it. https://t.co/L3y4ethfSn

They have no confidence in Biden. It’s so obvious.
