My opinion on 2020 debates

Trump is pushing for more debates than usual.

Here’s Chris Cillizza’s column.

I hope there are no debates.

This is what I sent to CNN yesterday:

  • I hope there aren’t any debates for the following reasons.
  • 1) Trump will tell lots of lies.  He has more to lie about than in 2016 because he has been in office for almost four years. There have been almost no consequences for him for lying.  The media points outs out the lies and he just repeats them. I expect his greatest hits of lies – Veterans Choice, best economy ever, biggest tax cut ever
  • 2) Who will correct his lies? If Biden does it, it cuts in to his time to present his ideas.  Biden should state up front that he expects Trump to lie and the Democrats should post the lies online in real time. If the moderator does it, Trump will say they are biased.
  • 3) Trump will make dangerous efforts to undermine the election. He will attack mail-in voting. He will make accusations of fraud and that it will be rigged.  Remember, he did that when he won!
    I suggest that you talk to a child psychologist.  I am sure they have dealt with children that lie often and have ideas on how to stop it.  I am sure constantly broadcasting Trump’s lies are not part of the solution.
    One question on the Tulsa Trump rally: Will the reporters be required to sign the waiver forms?  If they are, I hope they don’t go.  In addition to the dangers of a crowded arena with probably few people wearing masks, Trump has attacked the media in his rallies.  We have seen instances where Trump supporters yell at reporters at close range when they are incited by Trump. 
    I appreciate the The Point and look forward to receiving it.  Thanks for all you do to keep us informed.
