The Times of course is framing the issue around the idea that presidential debates are "meaningless," but we all know the truth -- that Biden is simply incapable of stringing together a cogent sentence. The minute he faces President Donald Trump, in other words, Biden will fold like a losing Poker hand.
Writing on behalf of the Democrat Party, Times journalist Elizabeth Drew insists that she is not at all worried about Biden losing the debates, should he actually make it to one. Instead, she is challenging the idea that debates even have a valid purpose.
"This, by the way, isn't written out of any concern that Donald Trump will prevail over Joe Biden in the debates; Mr. Biden has done just fine in a long string of such contests," Drew contends.
It is just that presidential debates are meaningless, according to Drew, who believes "that 'winning' a debate, however assessed, should be irrelevant, as are the debates themselves."
"The debates have never made sense as a test for presidential leadership," she adds.
"In fact, one could argue that they reward precisely the opposite of what we want in a president. When we were serious about the presidency, we wanted intelligence, thoughtfulness, knowledge, empathy and, to be sure, likability. It should also go without saying, dignity."
"Yet the debates play an outsized role in campaigns and weigh more heavily on the verdict than their true value deserves," Drew declares.
Using the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) as yet another excuse not to hold any more presidential debates, Drew takes things a step further by calling for their abolishment – and why not, seeing as how Democrats already want to abolish everything else from America's history?
Since Trump used the 2016 presidential debates as "simply another tool in his arsenal" to win the election, and now represents "the most disastrous president in our history," in Drew's view, presidential debates as a whole are no longer relevant or necessary.
Times columnist Thomas Friedman agrees with Drew, having written last month that Biden should not have to debate Trump because Trump will just use the situation to his own advantage. The only way a debate between Biden and Trump has even the potential to be legitimate is if a real-time fact-checker is present to filter out Trump's false claims, Friedman contends.
Hilariously, former Bill Clinton press aide Joe Lockhart recently advised Biden at CNN.com with the words: "Whatever you do, don't debate Trump."
What many still fail to recognize is the fact that Joe Biden is seen by the far-left not as a viable candidate, but rather as a convenient puppet who will do whatever he is told. He does not actually have to function as a coherent, logical human being, in other words, hence why the far-left is doing everything it can to keep Biden from the debate stage.
"You can always count on the New York Times to put what's best for the left ahead of what's best for America," wrote one Breitbart News commenter. "Heaven forbid that voters might ever get the truth."
"Journalist Drew was not concerned that Biden would lose the debate but was concerned that DEMENTED Joe would expose his being mentally unfit for the office of president," wrote another.
