The Biden campaign gets its goal: no more debates. – The Commission on Presidential Debates, obviously coordinating with the Biden camp, ensured the October 15 presidential debate will not come off yesterday by announcing – without first consulting the Trump campaign – that that debate would be held “virtually,” i.e., on Zoom, basically, with the candidates participating via video from remote locations.
The obvious goal there would be to allow the addled Biden to participate while wearing an ear piece or other communications device by which his aides could feed him answers, and has literally nothing to do with the President’s recent bout with COVID-19. As is the case with so many other aspects of our society today, the China Virus is the excuse, not the problem.
Also obviously, no one involved expected President Trump to agree to such a debate, which he made clear yesterday morning in an interview with Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo. The very fact that the Commission failed to consult the Trump campaign prior to the announced change is proof they were not acting in good faith, and were coordinating with Biden’s corrupt, elder-abusing handlers.
There is a 3rd debate scheduled for October 22, but you should expect the Commission/Biden camp to find a way to get out of that one as well. Their show horse has done one dog and pony show and survived without drooling on himself, and that’s all they’re going to be willing to risk.
Timing is everything in life… – You just cannot make this stuff up, folks. Steve Scully, the fake journalist/ex-Biden intern who is scheduled to be the “moderator” of the Oct. 15 debate, created quite a stir yesterday while all of this controversy was swirling around by issuing a cryptic tweet to former Trump Advisor-turned-Trump-enemy Anthony Scaramucci.
The full text of the tweet reads “@Scaramucci should I respond to trump”. Obviously, Scully thought he was sending the Mooch a private message, but screwed up and sent a public tweet instead.
Naturally, Trump supporters responded with amazement at Scully’s failed effort at skullduggery. From a report at Fox News:
Scully, whose October 15-scheduled town hall event had been crumbling after President Trump withdrew from the now-virtual debate, sparked confusion and fury among critics, many concluding that the moderator meant to send such a message to Trump’s foe privately.
“odd thing for the next debate moderator to tweet,” Politico reporter Alex Thompson reacted.
“This is not going to help the idea that Scully is *in any way* an objective and unbiased journalist and moderator,” NewsBusters managing Curtis Houck wrote.
“We need a different moderator at the v least. This is disqualifying,” Rebeccah Heinrichs, a senior fellow at the conservative Hudson Institute, tweeted.
“It appears that our moderator for the next debate thinks he’s dm’ing with Scaramucci but accidentally tweeted at him. I’m sure he’ll be a fair and unbiased moderator,” Daily Caller’s Greg Price said.
“What? Why is the next presidential debate moderator publicly asking one of Trump’s staunchest critics in Anthony Scaramucci if he should respond to the president? In a related story, Scully once interned for Sen. Joe Biden. Optics here are horrible & underscore mistrust is media,” The Hill media reporter Joe Concha tweeted.
So, here we have the designated “moderator” of a presidential debate reaching out to one of the most discredited public figures in the entire country for advice on how to conduct himself. Given that the Mooch has become a sworn enemy of the President since leaving the White House after his disastrous 9-day stint as some sort of “communications” advisor, the optics of this episode could not be worse for the credibility of the media and Commission on Presidential Debates.
As I wrote yesterday, the entire Commission and the process it governs needs to be blown up into a million pieces and scattered to the winds. This utterly corrupt bit of DC Swamp Kabuki Theater has been allowed to unfairly slant our presidential election process for far too long. If the Republican Party won’t put an end to the farce, then it’s time for thinking conservatives to find an alternative to the Republican Party.
That is all.
