Trump Ignores Biden’s Challenge to a Debate

William Shakespeare said that "Desperate times breed desperate measures," and Joe Biden is desperate. Sitting in his basement, sheltering in place ("aging in place," some are saying), reading scripts from his teleprompter, Joe Biden is now challenging the president to a debate. The president is ignoring him.

Why wouldn't he? The president has everything going his way and he is drowning out any attempt by Biden to get some airtime.

Biden's first challenge was issued the day after Super Tuesday. Fresh from his victories, he challenged the president to a debate, claiming that he would "beat him like a drum." While being interviewed by Brian Williams, Biden dared the president:

I'm going to beat this man like a drum. I'm telling you. I can hardly wait to debate him. I want to debate him about corruption. Talk about corruption. This is the most corrupt president we've ever had in American history. I can hardly wait, Brian.

I'm not going to play his game. I'm not going to get into the idea of whether or not I have to defend anything. What he did was impeachable. He got impeached. He should have been convicted. They acknowledged he should have been. That he committed the crimes that he, in fact, they said he did but they said it wasn't enough to impeach him. This is outrageous.

Unfortunately for Biden that was back in February – ages ago in political terms.

On Wednesday, Biden tried again. During an interview with radio host Enrique Santos, Biden said he is "ready to debate President Trump on Zoom or Skype, any time he wants."

Here is Biden's reality: it has been Trump, all the time. The coronavirus threat has taken over the conversation. Trump is everywhere. He is being increasingly perceived as large and in charge. His approval ratings both as president and as leader of the attack on the virus have skyrocketed. He is even getting modest plaudits from high profile Democrats like New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, California's Governor Gavin Newsom, and Washington's Governor Jay Inslee. Polls are showing enormous gains coming from Democrats and Independents – approaching 10 percent favorables in some cases – putting the president within shouting distance of a 40-state win in the general election.
