President Joe Biden has proposed two debates with Donald Trump, throwing down the gauntlet in a video message directed at his rival, where he taunts him with 'I hear you're free on Wednesdays.' Trump, who is in his fourth week of a hush-money trial in New York, is required by the judge to be in court for testimony. Wednesday is the only day the court is not in session. Biden is proposing their first presidential debate be in late June and the second would occur in September before early voting begins. He proposes a vice presidential debate in July.

This is what this Democrat party is all about. Donald Trump has mean tweets (according to some people) but with Joe Biden's "make my day, pal" and Kamala Harris' "kick that f------ door down," a person gets a real and true view of them. Arrogant. . .

FJB, who belongs in a hospice now, isn't going to debate Trump because he is not capable of standing on his hind legs, thinking, and talking simultaneously. He's gonzo. If Trump, who has still got it together, debated the demented, retarded, corrupted, perverted FJB, the debate would be the most one-sided ever seen. Biden probably wouldn't leave the stage under his own power after being humiliated by Orange Man Bad. He'd need a stretcher and an IV full of Adderall.

They will never debate. Biden can't even complete one coherent sentence. He just needs to go on record as a tough guy challenging Trump to debate. Joe's handlers will do anything to prevent promised debates, including a ground war in New Jersey, or a second national plague if necessary.

If all those massive rallies and pro-Trump publicity are enough; why bother with a debate? Even two? Technically, debates are for persuading undecided voters. If a voter is undecided, after all the stories read and heard, he would be an uneducated idiot.

CNN. The Biden team must think they have the rigging of everything necessary done to their satisfaction for perceived success, or this is just a political scheme hatched on an inconvenient, or impossible, time schedule for DT in hopes of providing the appearance of strength for them & weakness from him for not accepting it. Don’t know what, but something is in the works. There is no way an honest debate would benefit Biden, & there is certainly no chance that Trump wouldn’t clean the floor with him.

Notice how everyone is suddenly talking about this instead of the disaster in NYC courtroom now? Trump will need to be careful not to dump on feeble Joe too much to ensure he's not looking like a bully. He should have someone sweep the room for electronic bugs to make sure Joe isn't being tipped off. He should demand that at least 3 of the questions will be presented by the candidates themselves and delivered to the moderator(s) only 2 minutes before they are to be asked of each candidate. This would remove the likely case of Joe being given the questions in advance like Hillary was by Donna Brazille did previously. Trump needs to have a "bleach" response ready to go as I'm sure Joe will be looking to lob that one into the debate sometime.

Not so fast, you guys. WHY it is in Trump's best interest to agree to both the date AND the news organization selected by BIDEN? He chose the date and place for a REASON and we are kidding ourselves if we think it just fits in best with Joe's busy schedule. To those of you who think Biden will fizzle and self-destruct, think again. This is the guy who mumbled incoherently and fell up the steps one day and shortly thereafter gave a SOTU which was hailed as one of his top career performances? He's found some kind of secret workaround to keep his dementia in check. {{{ Poof! }}} and it's completely vanished, what a deal! Joe has a problem, however. He cannot have a successful debate if he has to share the stage with Trump. Don't be surprised if at the last minute he comes up with some reason he can't get to Atlanta and he suggests moving the debate to a Zoom platform instead. That would certainly give him an advantage in lots of different ways. Trump should just say NO to JUN 27 and CNN! Why would anyone think they will suddenly be fair?

Well, apparently Biden has certain stipulations (restrictions) for the debate like no audience, & when Trump is allowed to speak, Biden friendly outlets, etc. I guess there will be no debate if all of his conditions aren’t met. If Trump refuses and Biden backs out…Trump’s fault.

Some sly political pundits have opined that if Trump gets convicted of any of the ninety-three felonies in any of the four kangaroo courtrooms, FJB can just declare that he's not going to debate a felon supported by "mega" Nazis. His eyes will magically turn black, and he'll start hollering about all those hated American citizens, whether natural born or naturalized, who will vote for Trump, and whose numbers he wants diluted by twelve million criminal invaders who will be voting in large numbers this fall, perhaps large enough numbers to swing multiple elections. Then FJB will tuck his tail between his legs, walk away on those toothpick strides, say it's all Trump's fault, and head to Rehoboth Beach with a full load in his adult diapers.

Washington— The House delivered a rebuke to President Joe Biden Thursday for pausing a shipment of bombs to Israel, passing legislation that seeks to force the weapons transfer as Republicans worked to highlight Democratic divisions over the Israel-Hamas war. Seeking to discourage Israel from its offensive on the crowded southern Gaza city of Rafah, the Biden administration this month put on hold a weapons shipment of 3,500 bombs — some as large as 2,000 pounds — that are capable of killing hundreds in populated areas.

It’s a long list of possible names for the increasingly important vice presidential job, as the latest I&I/TIPP Poll indicates. As part of our monthly national online poll, taken from May 1-3, we asked 538 Republicans, and those who lean that way, two questions about who they preferred as Trump’s vice president. The poll has a margin of error of +/-4.3 percentage points. First we asked a straightforward question: “Who is your top choice for Trump’s vice president?”

As CalMatters noted, deficit estimates ranged from $38 billion to $73 billion: That prompted Newsom and the Legislature to take “early action” last month to reduce the deficit by more than $17 billion ahead of the regular budget process. Their plan included some program cuts, but mostly relied on new revenue, internal borrowing and funding delays and shifts for savings,
