CNN political analyst and former White House Press Secretary under Bill Clinton Joe Lockhart claimed that Joe Biden shouldn’t debate President Trump.
Trump “will take the truth and destroy it, and Biden will be in the position of correcting him over and over and over again. I don’t think he should give him that platform.” pic.twitter.com/4EOR4Q9Um7

Whatever you do, don’t debate Trump. Trump has now made more than 20,000 misleading or false statements according to the Washington Post. It’s a fool’s errand to enter the ring with someone who can’t follow the rules or the truth. Biden will undoubtedly take heat from Republicans and the media for skipping the debates. But it’s worth the risk as trying to debate someone incapable of telling the truth is an impossible contest to win.
This is one of the dumbest things I have ever heard. If Trump was such a liar wouldn’t debates be the exact thing that Biden should do? It would be Biden’s chance to expose him.
The truth is of course, that Joe Lockart knows Biden can’t actually debate. He knows that a debate between Biden and Trump might just be all that is needed for President Trump to be re-elected.
