(Tea Party PAC) – While sitting down with Fox News host Chris Wallace recently, President Donald Trump raised the question of whether or not Democratic Party presidential nominee and former vice president Joe Biden could handle being grilled the way he was.
I think it’s pretty safe to say that Biden, who seems to be suffering from some sort of mental acuity issue, would crumble beneath the weight of tough questions that would be floated his way by Wallace, who seems to be the kind of guy who really doesn’t take prisoners. Granted, a lot of folks weren’t happy with the way Wallace treated Trump and that’s understandable. However, if he treated Biden equally, then boy oh boy, that interview would be tough to watch.
However, it seems we might not ever really know the answer to that question, at least not for now, as Biden’s campaign has rejected an offer to sit down with Wallace for an interview.
Here’s more from Fox News:
Wallace on Sunday informed viewers that the Biden campaign told Fox News he was “not available” for an interview.
“In our interview last week with President Trump, he questioned whether his Democratic opponent, Joe Biden, could handle a similar encounter,” Wallace said. “This week, we asked the Biden campaign for an interview and they said the former vice president was not available.”
He added, “We’ll keep asking every week.”
If I were working for the Biden campaign and knew that my candidate was as weak in the mental arena as Uncle Joe, I’d probably do my best to reduce the opportunities he had to speak in public too. Biden has made an absolute fool of himself in recent months and weeks. He’s bumbled, stumbled, lost his train of thought constantly, and said a lot of weird stuff.
He’s an absolute gaffe machine. A total nightmare for those folks who are trying to get him elected to the White House.
The Trump campaign has hit Biden for months for abstaining from holding rallies and news conferences while continuing to do interviews amid the coronavirus pandemic. While Biden recently has returned to the stump, Trump and his allies continued to mock the former vice president for “hiding” in his home in Delaware.
Biden’s reticence to do public events, however, has done little to hurt his candidacy as the latest polls had Biden comfortably ahead of Trump both nationally and in key battleground states.
Real Clear Politics averages indicated the president was down 7 points in Florida, 6.7 points in Pennsylvania, 8.2 points in Michigan and 6.4 points in Wisconsin. Trump narrowly won all four states in 2016, flipping them from blue to red as he won the White House.
The latest Fox News Polls put Biden ahead in Minnesota, Michigan and Pennsylvania, with leads all outside the margin of error.
While many have suggested that Biden might be suffering from dementia, he and his campaign have repeatedly stated that the presidential nominee has underwent mental testing and has passed with flying colors. None of the results for these “tests” have ever been revealed, so apparently, we’re just supposed to take Biden’s word for it.
Polling also suggested Biden had a slight edge in Ohio, North Carolina and Arizona, three other important swing states this cycle. And, surveys indicated that once reliably red states such as Texas and Georgia were all knotted up between Trump and the former vice president.
Presidential elections in which an incumbent is running for a second term in the White House are often a referendum on that president – and that’s seen as being the case right now in the 2020 showdown between Trump and Biden. The top issues have been the coronavirus and an economy flattened by the pandemic – and the president’s performance and record on both issues.
It speaks volumes about the confidence Biden’s campaign has in him that they won’t allow him to be interviewed by Wallace and asked tough questions. The rejection of this interview really seems to back up what a lot of folks are thinking and saying about Biden’s mental state.
Perhaps there’s a little something to the rumors of his not having the elevator going up to the top floor after all?
