ONE EXAMPLE OF WHAT JOE BIDEN WAS ALLOWED TO GET AWAY WITH

Here, via Tyler O’Neil’s article for pjmedia.com, is one of the only instances in which debate moderator Chris Wallace asked a direct, potentially controversial question of Joe Biden, and how things went from there:

“Are you willing to tell the American people tonight whether you will support ending the filibuster or packing the Court?” Wallace asked.

Biden began to circle around the issue, dodging the question. “Whatever position I take in that, that will become the issue. The issue is the American people should speak. You should go out and vote. You’re in voting now. Vote and let your senators know…”

“Are you going to pack the Court?” Trump pressed.

Biden repeated himself, “vote and let your senators know…”

“Are you going to pack the Court? He doesn’t want to answer the question,” the president added.

“I’m not going to answer that question,” Biden responded.

“Why aren’t you going to answer that question?” Trump pressed.

“Would you shut up, man?” the Democrat responded.

The president took a different tack. “Who is on your list, Joe?” he asked.

“This is so unpresidential,” Biden responded.

“Who is on your list, Joe?” Trump repeated.

“Whatever position I take in that, that will become the issue. The issue is the American people should speak. You should go out and vote. You’re in voting now”?  That’s an answer?

I wonder if the team on the other end of that wire Biden was wearing told him to say “shut up” and “this is so unpresidential”….as Trump, unlike Wallace, continued to demand an actual answer.

Maybe one day Biden will lapse and tell us.

  • My congratulations to everyone who was able to watch the whole debate. I got so angry, I shut it off after 10-15 minutes. It was like watching MSNBC.
