President Trump has been under fire from the moment that he first descended that golden escalator and announced that he would be seeking the presidency.
Many believed that this was either a stunt or a joke, given just how “larger than life” much of Donald Trump’s entire existence has been. Pundits openly laughed at his candidacy, with some guaranteeing that he would never even make it to the nomination, let alone the Oval Office.
Spoiler alert: He’s working to get reelected as we speak.
But that doesn’t mean that he’s not still taking heat from the left…especially as we draw ever nearer to this all important election.
A former senior adviser to Hillary Clinton agrees: “Biden shouldn’t feel obligated to throw Trump a lifeline by granting him any debates at all. This is not a normal presidential election and Trump is not a legitimate candidate,” Zac Petkanas tweeted last week.
And then there’s Thomas Friedman, an anti-Trump New York Times columnist, who urged Biden just last week not to debate the president unless Trump agrees to “two conditions.” Of course those conditions are ridiculous — Trump must release his tax returns and agree to “real-time fact checking” during the debate — and will never be agreed to, and therefore ensure there will be no debates.
Trump has recently indicated that he’s relishing the opportunity to go toe-to-toe with Biden on the debate stage, despite the constant naysaying of the mainstream media and the Washington DC establishment alike.
