Last week, President Trump called out Joe Biden. Trump said that Biden would not make himself available for interviews and answer tough questions.
The president stated what most Americans know. Biden is demented. And Democrats believe they can hide this fact.
As predicted, President Trump will not let the Left nor Biden slide on this issue. He used his interview with Chris Wallace to put Biden, his medical team, and other handlers on notice. Trump said that Biden would beg for mommy if he had to do a similar interview. Wallace confided that Fox News Sunday invited Biden for an interview.
Mission accomplished. Trump got Leftist Wallace to put Biden on the spot. And anybody who watched that interview wondered how Biden would respond. After all, Biden needs to convince many Conservatives to vote for him. LOTS of Conservatives. And while Fox News is no bastion of pure Conservatism, it’s as close as Biden will get to influence such an audience.
So what did Biden decide?
According to MSNBC, Biden passed.
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.”
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.
No surprise here. When you have dementia, you must cover it up. Biden did the only thing he could do. Unless he doesn’t have dementia.
Consider what happens if we are wrong. If Biden doesn’t have dementia,then he finally has something to run on. Sort of.
What an opportunity to prove Trump wrong. Can you imagine how bad things would be for Republicans if Biden was not diminished? His new campaign ads might be,
“Vote for me because even though I’m technically stupid, I’m not clinically stupid.”
Trump would still crush him. But Biden would at least gain back the 20 percent of the Democrats who believe he is demented.
Sadly for Biden, he can’t make that claim. So no Fox News Sunday interview.
What does this mean for Biden?
Well, it will be difficult for him and the Democrats to spin this. Most politicians running for president would set their grandmother on fire to get an interview on Fox News. Hillary Clinton interviewed on Fox News eventually.
The Hollywood Reporter discussed Clinton’s 5-year hiatus from Fox News.
Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton appeared on Fox News for the first time in five years, granting her first post-convention interview to Fox News Sunday With Chris Wallace. Clinton, who reached a primarily conservative audience in her sit-down interview, gave her stance on Trump, gun violence and Benghazi while revealing that her mother regularly watched Fox News.
“She was a big Fox viewer, I will tell you,” said Clinton. “Yes, she was, And she would get upset. I’ll be honest with you. She would get upset when some of the people you had on would say these terrible things about me. And that was when I was a senator running for president and for the first two years of being secretary of state. I would say, ‘Well, mom, if it upsets you so much, why do you keep watching?’ She said, ‘Well, I like some of the people and I have to know what the other ones are saying so I can understand and be against it.’”
What a pander. And that lame line about her mother watching Fox News. But at least the skank tried to milk the interview. Because you know Clinton’s mother does not watch Fox News.
Joe Biden has no chance of doing this. And that’s why Biden’s team made him “unavailable” for an interview. I suspect “unavailable” has a much deeper meaning, and it indicates a lot, such as his team’s understanding of Biden’s limitations.
What other interviews will he accept? Or more importantly, decline? What format of interviews is Biden willing to take on? Because Trump accepts them all! Democrats must know the futility of this strategy. Interviewing helps you hone your message, particularly if the interviewer challenges the candidate. That’s how Trump does so well. He’s all over the place taking the tough questions, and still making Herculean moves.
I do understand Biden’s rationale. He cannot win the presidency if he interviews on every channel until November 3. Biden has no moves, unless you count “The Malarkey Tour.”
I sad Biden won’t do an interview on Fox or anywhere else. The man is truly a gaffe a minute. And he’s an explosion waiting to happen on Democrats. And thanks to today’s technology, the final explosion will be caught on video. What more could we hope for?
