"President Biden said in a statement that he has received, and accepted, an invitation from CNN for a debate on June 27."

"'Over to you, Donald. As you said: anywhere, any time, any place,' he wrote. Mr. Trump told Fox News Digital that he 'will be there' and is 'looking forward to being in beautiful Atlanta.' CNN confirmed the date in a statement and said the debate would be hosted in its Atlanta studios, in a crucial swing state, with no audience. Moderators will be announced later."


That's brand-new breaking news. It came out just as I was about to put up this TikTok of President Biden challenging Trump to a debate (as if Trump hadn't been saying — for months — "anywhere, any time, any place" to Biden).
@bidenhq

Trump is acting like he wants to debate me again. Make my day, pal.

♬ original sound - Biden-Harris HQ
When I first saw that retweeted by someone on X, I thought that's not real. That's A.I., but then I saw it on the Biden-Harris HQ TikTok account and decided that was really him speaking and seriously making the debate challenge in that tough-guy tone. Weird! He's trying to sound like Trump, maybe. Trump, or Clint Eastwood.

Anyway, why does Biden have a TikTok account when he's bent on destroying TikTok? Or, don't waste time answering that question. It would be much more amusing to watch Trump's version of "Bohemian Rhapsody":
@yassinandseanterrio Replying to @ChrisHennessy112 what if trump sang Bohemian Rhapsody? A question for the ages. #trump #impressions #bits #bohemianrhapsody #bohemianrhapsodycover #queencover #coversong #piano ♬ original sound - YASSiN & Sean Terrio
ADDED: Earlier this morning, Biden gave notice that "The President will not be participating in the Commission of Presidential Debates' announced debates." I guess CNN leapt into the gap.

Timing is weird, suspicious. Neither have even (technically) won their nominations yet. The only reason to do this is to preempt Kennedy, and any others running in opposition.

The RNC had better stand up and disallow yet another communist moderator.

Have it last at least 90 minutes and no earpieces.

And make sure Joe has space for a drool bucket under his podium...

Tina Trent said...

Amusingly, the world-famous "CNN" sign recently had to be removed from the original CNN Center because CNN had to flee downtown because of crime and rioters. So when they come to you from the debate in Atlanta, it will be in the safe inburbs, exurbs, or suburbs, courtesy of the Democrats' policies.

CNN is still a viable organ of the Democrat party? Pethaps they can debate at PBS, NPR, or some other equitable and inclusive organelle.

There can really be no opinion until we see who will moderate and how.

Biden making mistakes. Trump will ramble incoherently and for him it's normal to make no sense like a dumdum. Not a level playing field.

Cannot wait for the gaffes and memes from the debate.

The Biden proposal includes specific conditions such as no audience, no interruptions from Trump while Biden is speaking, and only Biden-friendly news outlets can moderate.

A long as the debate is controlled by a loyalist NBC-type outlet - the Husk-Puppet will abide.

Skeptical Voter said...

Joe will be in his happy home (no silly not a retirement home for those with cognitive difficulties) at a debate hosted by CNN. CNN will provide three moderators, so the debate at CNN lines up as four against one. I think the Bad Orange Man will hold his own, even if Donna Brazille is one of the "moderators". Hillary Clinton may be available for one of the moderator slots.

Christopher B said...

He rejected the PDC format. Also the PDC schedule of three debates in late September and October. Proposed two debates, one in June and one in September. That's both before either man is officially nominated, and a good two months before Election Day.

I've not been in the camp that thinks Biden will be replaced but scheduling the last debate months before Election Day definitely feels like an opening to stiff Trump from being able to debate a potential replacement.

Joe Smith said...

Trump needs to show up with a fake teardrop prison tattoo : )

Lloyd W. Robertson said...

Bobby K is approaching the 15% mark in support where he may have been entitled to take part in a Commission debate. Biden: ah, ah, ah, no. Right?
Biden's tech team, racing against time, is now confident they can get the avatar working for the debate, provided very strict conditions are met: advance notice of all questions; fawning, adulatory "journalists"; an ear piece so he can take direction; everything explained very slowly, in single syllables. Mechanical Turk.

Lem the artificially intelligent said...

Eric Erickson says the debate is a scape hatch. If he sucks, he quits the race. They are not confident there’s a path to victory.

Yancey Ward said...

Each candidate should be allowed to choose a moderator with each moderator questioning the opposing candidate, but CNN will not host such an event and Biden's team will find a reason to back out if CNN did agree to this.

No- this debate, if it occurs will have Jake Tappworm as sole moderator and everyone knows it.

TreeJoe said...

So wait Biden has declined the (conceptually) non-partisan, independent commission for presidential debates in favor of a for-profit corporate news media driven event?

Did I get that right?

This whole thing is weird as shit and him announcing in part on Tik Tok just makes it weirder.

Mr Wibble said...

So, if the judge throws Trump into jail for "violation" of the gag order, preventing him from attending the debate, will that now be election interference?

Gunner said...

Has any President ever declared that they "won" debates against their opponent? (How do you judge winning anyway?)

It seems really low class. I don't even remember Trump saying he "won" against anyone.

mikee said...

Moderators Candace Owens, Tucker Carlson and Ben Shapiro soon to be announced, right?

RCOCEAN II said...

As state above, it will be 4-1 with Trump having to take on Biden and 3 CNN "moderators" in a tag team match. And of course, all the questions will be on Topics Biden wants to talk about. Look for almost nothing on Immigration, open borders, Hunter Biden, Biden Corruption, inflation, Gaza Genocide, etc.

Instead we will get "How dare you say you'll pardon those insurrectionists - why do hate Democracy" "Why are going to be fascist dictator if elected?" "How can you justify running for President when you're a convicted felon?" "Why did you try to overthrow Democracy on J6?" "Do you agree we should Stand by Israel, no matter what they do?" "Why do love Putin when he's a new Hitler?" "Why don't you love all immigrants, legal and illegal?" and "Do you still love Nazis?"

And as is the MSM Practice, CNN will "Tee it up" for Biden by giving him the questions in advance.

Curious about the date. Why is that date chosen? Is that a date when The leftwing judge will sentence Trump to Jail after he's found guilty by 12 liberal/leftwing NYC jurors?

Rt41Rebel said...

The early timing actually makes sense. It’s the final acid test for Biden before the convention.

Mr Wibble said...

It was pointed out on the twats that by ditching the Commission on Presidential Debates, Biden can keep RFK Jr. out, even though under normal rules he'd be in.

Personally, I doubt that this will accomplish much of anything. The rules will be stacked in his favor, and the moderators will try to protect him as much as possible. That said, when the cameras roll, Trump can do what he wants, and they'll be hard-pressed to stop him without looking like idiots. Meanwhile, they'll try to make the entire debate about Trump's legal issues, which will backfire on them.

My guess is that Trump lands a couple of solid blows, Biden doesn't do anything to force himself out of the race, and nothing changes in the polls.

Tommy Duncan said...

My advice to Trump is:

(1) Biden can't control his anger. Get under his skin by challenging his lies, particularly the lies with personal/family story lines. Facts are Joe's worst enemies. If you can get him off balance Biden will tip over.

(2) Challenge Biden to explain the details behind his claims and positions. In particular, force him to explain economic claims that involve numbers. Joe struggles horribly with numbers. He also has zero understanding of economic and business related matters.

That would be funny. If Trump misses the debate because he's in jail, you can just cancel the election and hand him the keys to the White House now.

That, and they're no longer getting the revenue to cover the rent.

CNN is no longer the news powerhouse it was in GW1 and GW2. Hell, it's not even on in the Atlanta Airport any more. Won't be much longer, I think, before they're in the same category as Air America - the left slanted radio network that was supposed to beat Rush Limbaugh a couple decades back. They burned through their startup capital, never got the audience they expected, and finally burned out in 2010. (Kinda surprised the Obama administration didn't throw 'em a lifeline, but maybe even they could see it was garbage.)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Air_America_(radio_network)

You'd think, at some point, the 'progressives' would get a clue that the 'finest chocolate' they're trying to push out as their product is much more the brown and messy stuff that comes out of the back end of a cow. Really, Switzerland exports fine chocolates, but they also export manure - and it's honestly pretty hard to mistake one for the other.

We'll see if they even go off. I'm dubious.

JK Brown said...

The Commission of Presidential Debates needs to die. They, for some reason, like being old people, can't adapt to the fact that the debates need to be before the voting starts, which means before mid-September. They've been nothing but a disaster for the last three election cycles.

Yes, I know it's a quasi-government entity but let's do something different and end things in government and politics that no longer provide value.

I propose Trump call Biden to debate him behind some high school gym. Or at least use one as the backdrop of a staged debate.

Humperdink said...

Dave Begley is right.

Yancey Ward said...

Here is how the debate negotiations will proceed- CNN will give the two parties a "balanced" list that is Jake Tapper, Wolf Blitzer, Christiana Amanpour, and Anderson Cooper, and the two will have to choose 1 or 2 from that list or there is no debate. They might even drag out former "right-leaning" employees like Brian "Tater" Steltzer and Don Lemon"head" if Trump doesn't like the first list.

What will not happen, ever, is what I proposed earlier- that Trump gets to pick half the moderators himself with Biden getting to pick the other half (or whoever does Biden's thinking for him). If by some miracle Trump does get to choose a moderator and Biden doesn't run away like a whipped cur, then Trump should choose Stefanik.

Real American said...

What a joke! Biden says he'll only debate on certain networks and only if their regular media people are the moderators since he claims they won't be biased. Yeah, right.

Wince said...

Biden risks looking like he's pathetically ceasing on the opportunity to control the details of the debate due to Trump's open-ended invitation...

The Biden proposal includes specific conditions such as no audience, no interruptions from Trump while Biden is speaking, and only Biden-friendly news outlets can moderate.

Wasn't the consensus in 2020 that Trump should have let Biden ramble on?

Amexpat said...

It's good that the perhaps will debate. It's OK to not have an audience and good to not allow interuptions, but they should do away with moderators asking questions. Let the candidates make opening statements and then let them question each other in an orderly way, such as time limits for questions, answers and rebuttals.

Joe Smith said...

'How can Trump, under multiple federal indictments, do a political debate with someone who is at least putatively the Chief Federal Law Enforcement Officer, unless Trump is given a Miranda Warning?'

Because Trump isn't a pussy and Biden doesn't know what day it is.

I love how you include 'putatively' because even liberal hacks know Biden isn't in charge of anything...

AlbertAnonymous said...

Chuck,

Don’t be so purposely obtuse.

Why would the left need to Mirandize Trump? Thats only required if they intend to/want to use any of his statements in court. Why would they need to do that? They already have all the evidence they need to convict him on each of his 52 indictments…..

Right?

Richard Dolan said...

Nothing has been working for Biden, least of all the imagined lawfare campaign to destroy Trump. Polls today show Trump head in 5 of the 6 states that will decide the election -- no movement in months. And nothing has changed about how bad Biden is in any unscripted moment -- not that he's so great in reading scripted comments off the teleprompter. It's a demonstration, if anyone needed it, about how bad Biden's internal polling must be to cause his 'advisors' to take this risk -- we're well beyond a Hail Mary pass, and deeply into the territory of St. Jude Thaddeus, patron of lost causes.

NorthOfTheOneOhOne said...

Either Erickson is right (see Lem's post above) or they're hoping Trump will bully the "well meaning elderly man with a poor memory" and get Joe some sympathy votes. (At least that's how they'll spin the debate.) I would be suspicious of their motives but considering some of the stuff that's been coming out of the Biden White House (see their Israel policy) I'm more inclined to think they're pulling a stunt that they think is slick. And if you've seen Botox Nancy's recent performance at the Oxford Union it's quite possible the whole crew has gone nuts.

mikeski said...

That second part almost assuredly won't happen. The "moderator(s)" will step in if and when Joe actually has to come up with an answer that extends beyond the 8-10 words he memorized on a given topic.

On the first part, Trump should have some fun. I'd like to see him throw in a bunch of "is that what your earpiece fed you, Joe?" and "who told you told you to say that, Joe, your wife?" to begin his responses.

Fred Drinkwater said...

That ridiculous video clip is a preview of how CNN will broadcast the "debate".

But it won't matter. I cannot even imagine anything Biden could say that would swing the polls his way.

So, as the saying goes,"His stated agenda is not his real agenda." "Whose is?"

Gusty Winds said...

Oh yeah...like the CNN invitation was a surprise invitation that Biden just "accepted."

Althouse writes, "When I first saw that retweeted by someone on X, I thought that's not real. That's A.I."

In an important sense, Althouse was correct in her first assumption. It is A.I., but what is that? Artificial intelligence is the semblance of intelligence, a pretense of probity, a simulacrum of smarts. When someone uses ChatGPT, the intelligence they engage belongs to the system architects and programmers, the rest is an illusion created by the massively parallel processing of algorithms on a database of word associations. The servers are not intelligent, they're just quick.

Nor is ChatGPT a breakthrough technology, it's a civilian application of technology developed almost 30 years ago by DARPA as part of the effort to create a "Star Wars" missile defense. Specifically, means to sort radar detections of real incoming warheads from chaff or decoys deployed by the enemy. DARPA's scientists learned that experienced radar officers could distinguish the real from the fake with high reliability given enough data and enough time. They reasoned that massively parallel processing units could execute algorithms derived from the techniques used by human radar officers to penetrate a screen of decoys in the brief time a missile defense system could reasonably have to react to an attack. It was just a matter of scale and programming. Small-scale A.I. existed long before that. For example, there were numerous "Chinese room" entertainments created mainly to amuse and impress executives with authority over I.T. purchases. DEC built one to promote their line of PDP mini-computers that jokingly implied the owner could dispense with his psychoanalyst by buying a computer.

Whenever you hear Joe Biden complete a coherent sentence or correctly identify anyone or anything, that's an illusion created by his operators. Biden was never considered bright, even from his earliest days in politics, and senility has erased and distorted what little native ability that man had as a junior member of the New Castle County Council. Any illusion of intelligence is A.I. in the broad sense, just as John Serle's Chinese room creates the illusion of Chinese fluency.

The impression of Trump was quite spot-on but too brief and spoilt by the comedians laughing at their own jokes.

There isn't going to be a debate. Biden's handlers will keep moving the goal posts to make it impossible for any debate to take place. Then they will blame Trump and the media will back them up. Biden can barely handle a fork or read the teleprompter much stand up on a stage and debate for ninety minutes. Not gonna happen.

I saw the first "Presidential Debate" between Nixon and Kennedy. I was too young to vote (you had to be 21 in those dark olden days), but not too young to conclude that the exercise was a joke. As it turned out, they BOTH became President. The debate would have told you nothing about how either of them would perform in the office. OK, they were BOTH imperfect -- did you need a debate to tell you that?

Trump supporters thought (hoped) 4 years ago that a debate would show up Biden as a mindless ninny. They forgot that Joe has succeeded in politics for decades as a mindless ninny.

The Democrats' apparent strategy is the have Trump in jail throughout the campaign. On the other hand, remember Mayor Curley of Boston who won re-election from jail.

Skeptical Voter said...

The story--like a lot of Biden stories--keeps changing. First time out it was Biden who had issued the challenge. Now the story changes and Biden has accepted the challenge.

Challenge is a word that Biden should avoid. After all a guy who is mentally challenged should not bring attention to the fact.

But come the debate, it if ever happens, Biden's doctors will have him so juiced that he just might be able to play football for Navy and displace Roger Staubach. The Juice Is Loose--as they used to say about the guy who has now stopped looking for the person who murdered Nicole Simpson.

Is it going to be live? Or is it going to be recorded and re-broadcast? If it's live - will there be an imposed broadcast delay? And will the microphones have a 'kill' switch at the 'director's discretion'? Trump needs to have his own cameras running to avoid the 'gotcha' moments that will no doubt arise later.

Don't know if I would watch it, or not - I might, just to catch Trump's response to a 'Candy Crowley' moment, should one arise....

If they aren't appearing together 'live' on the same stage, I would be highly suspicious; I'm not aware that A.I. has progressed to the point where it could serve up a Joe Biden a stand-in, in real time, but I would guess it ain't far off. Of course, as credible A.I. challenges go, Joe sets the bar pretty low for capability, so....

Sorry, this is not an objective fact. In fact it is an outright lie. An "objective fact" requires irrefutable evidence. You have none.

I didn't bother to check the accuracy of your other three objective facts. Although last I checked, 74,223,975(Trump in 2020)-69,498,516(Obama 2008) is nowhere near 10 million. That is objective math.

Like the evidence Rudy Guiliani had that ballot counters were pulling fake ballots out of suitcases? That lie cost (or at least is supposed to cost him) $148 million. He also has a myriad of other criminal and civil cases pending, and has been disbarred.

His handlers decided he is going to lose and is too far behind. They have him agree to the debates and then will pump him full of drugs again like the SoU. This time they will add a little extra so that he will suffer some kind of fatal health issue during the debate. Then they can blame Trump for his death and get an instant boost for their replacement candidate.
