All the woke media news outlets licking their chops over the various ways in which they can misrepresent Donald Trump’s performance in the first debate are in for a rather rude awakening, given the former (and potentially future) president’s decision.
In a rather pointed Truth Social post, Trump has made it abundantly clear that he is way beyond the typical theatrics expected of primary candidates, including a circus of a debate.
“New CBS POLL, just out, has me leading the field by ‘legendary’ numbers … The public knows who I am & what a successful Presidency I had, with Energy Independence, Strong Borders & Military, Biggest EVER Tax & Regulation Cuts, No Inflation, Strongest Economy in History, & much more,” Trump noted.
Needless to say, Trump’s presidency is even strong in hindsight, especially given the catastrophic conditions brought about by Biden.
Not only are crime rates and illegal border crossings way up (coincidence, anyone?), but also the United States has been dramatically weakened on the global stage, right down to the Taliban openly mocking the White House.
And, more recently, Iran’s military openly intimidating well over 4,000 American troops in the Persian Gulf.
All of these events mean one thing, and one thing only: Someone with a real backbone needs to get back into the White House, stat, and preferably someone who hasn’t been bought off by varied billionaires.
And that someone would certainly be Trump, at least relative to his other competitors, one of the many reasons why Trump has openly declined to debate.
“I WILL THEREFORE NOT BE DOING THE DEBATES!” Trump concluded.
In truth, who could really blame him?
After all, Trump was subjected to rather notorious manipulation when he “debated” Biden, a debate that has been roundly acknowledged as a total sham.
First, Trump demanded that Biden be inspected for an ear implant, a demand that the media feigned horror over … However, as Biden appears totally dependent on “cue cards” that he routinely exposes to the press, Trump’s request likely wasn’t so far off after all.
Secondly, former Fox News host Chris Wallace basically debated for Biden, which Trump rightfully called out during the debate.
Third, it is highly likely that all the candidates would likely focus all their attention on Trump during the first debate, which would render the entire debate utterly futile.
After all, several of the candidates already focus on Trump enough as it is outside of a formal debate.
Needless to say, at least one potential GOP contender is not pleased by Trump’s decision, including none other than Trump’s former vice president, Mike Pence.
Pence recently remarked that he hopes Trump will “show up” after all, though it’s highly unlikely, given that Trump doesn’t tend to change his mind, regardless of which direction the wind is blowing.
“I served alongside the president for a long time, and one thing I realized about him is: It’s not over till it’s over. I’m actually still hoping he shows up,” Pence mused.
For what? To be attacked, again, over January 6?
Outside of remarking on his apparent hopes for Trump to show, Pence also positioned himself as vastly more experienced than all the other candidates.
“I’ve had a little bit of experience with nationally televised debates, but it’s different with a group on stage. And, look, I’m just going to be me … I feel like I’ve been preparing for this first Republican presidential debate my whole life. And frankly, as [former second lady Karen Pence] and I have traveled all across the country, one of the things we’ve come to realize is that I’m well known, but I’m not known well,” Pence drawled.
Well then. That’s quite a bit of confidence.
Confidence that ironically originates from being Trump’s right-hand man for years.
