Here are all the restrictions Biden's team demanded in their Trump debate offer
President Biden and former President Trump on Wednesday made their plans to officially debate, but the offer from the Biden team came with several strings attached.

This is good, both parties have agreed to earlier debates. I agree with some of the proposed rules from the Biden campaign, but I think RFK Jr. should be in there also due to his polling.


S E E D E D   C O N T E N T


No Audience


Biden's campaign heavily criticized the CPD for making debates "huge spectacles with large audiences" in its letter to the organization.

The new debates between Trump and Biden must take place in a television studio with just the candidates and the moderator present.

"The debates should be conducted for the benefit of the American voters, watching on television and at home – not as entertainment for an in-person audience with raucous or disruptive partisans and donors, who consume valuable debate time with noisy spectacles of approval or jeering.

No RFK Jr. or any other 3rd-party candidate


Biden's campaign says the debate must be one versus one, with no third-party candidates allowed.

Limited news outlets


"It should be hosted by any broadcast organization that hosted a Republican Primary debate in 2016 in which Donald Trump participated, and a Democratic primary debate in 2020 in which President Biden participated – so neither campaign can assert that the sponsoring organization is obviously unacceptable: if both candidates have previously debated on their airwaves, then neither could object to such venue," the campaign wrote.

Candidate mics must mute after time expires


Biden's campaign blasted the CPD for allowing extensive crosstalk and interruptions during the 2020 debates between Trump and Biden.

They now demand that both candidates' microphones be muted once their allotted speaking time expires.

I hope they can pull it off and get debates in earlier than normal. This waiting until September for the first debate IMO is stupid.

They don't want to have a live audience laugh on the air when Traitor Joe goes on one of his "Stories with Bumbling Biden".  

No RFK Jr. Or Any Other 3rd-Party Candidate

I get that.  Biden is easily confused by the smell of air so having a 3rd party candidate up there will destroy him.

Limited News Outlets

The justification for this one actually makes sense.  

Candidate Mics Must Mute After Time Expires

They want to keep Traitor Joe's incoherent mumbling to a minimum.

Can’t have an audience because Biden gets easily distracted.

but here again we have Biden,  the guy who is supposed to be  Mr, norms, breaking a decades old norm of following the bipartisan commission guidelines.

Trump should make 3 simple demands of Biden

1. No teleprompters

2. No earwig devices

3. Drug test by independent lab for both participants and the moderator.

Without these rules Trump would act like a maniac like he did in the 2020 debate when he interrupted Biden dozens of times. 

If Trump doesnt agree to an automatic mic cutoff after the allotted time to answer a question he can stay home.

I would also like to see the monitors doing some real time fact checking. 

Some of the lies that have been flying around are so obvious that they should not be allowed to be repeated without being debunked.

So interrupting your opponent and acting histrionically is what maniacs do, huh?

In 2012,Biden interrupted 82 times during the entire debate,” the RNC’s Joe Pounder tweeted after the debate. CNN’s Gloria Berger said that she would have liked Biden to show less “condescension” and “eye-rolling.”

I doubt Biden would even have the physical ability to interrupt anyone 80 plus times anymore.

Biden and Trump may have agreed to debate but the question is will Trump show up? He has a history of not doing so along with his history of complaining about them.

Trump's entire debate strategy consists of calling people names and making himself the victim.  Proper moderation would prevent both.

Poor Biden. He's obviously running scared and was hoping  he could bluff Trump into refusing to debate by refusing  the bipartisan debate committee's terms and  only offering debates when they would have the least impact/viewers.  Too early in election season, on cable and only two debates are demands of a scared man.   He's so desperate to get these out of the way and out of the voters minds that he even proposed one before even the convention.  all the hopes Trump would hold out for a more normal schedule. But Biden is the destroyer of norms, and this is just one more for him to break.

If Biden's handlers had any confidence in his abilities, they'd press for three debates as close to the election as possible.

Nate Silver has an idea why they want such an early debate:

By moving the first debate to before the Democratic convention in August, Democrats increase their option value. Here’s what I mean by that. If Biden totally and irrecoverably screws up in the June debate — he’s just obviously no longer ready for prime time — then he can step down and Democrats can  pull the Ezra Klein break-glass-in-case-of-emergency plan  and hold a contested convention. It’s not ideal — that’s an understatement — but it’s much less bad than going into the final months of the campaign certain to lose.

They really have to plan for a Biden implosion.

At least , for his sake, there doesnt seem to be any real time fact checking involved.  If there was he would be truly fucked.

How did their plans work out over Biden’s 2023 immensely popular state of the union address?  Or are you guys still insisting it was as unpopular on earth 1 as it is in your angry little bubble?

Brother, if you think his speech was "immensely popular" you really need to get out of your bubble.

It was the worst polling state of the union this century.

Here's the reality...

who had a positive view of the speech was actually lower than any such speech CNN has polled in the past quarter-century — the previous low being Donald Trump’s 2018 address (70 percent). And the 35 percent who offered a “very” positive review was effectively tied with Biden’s speech last year (34 percent) for the lowest on record. The next lowest were Biden’s 2022 speech and George W. Bush’s 2007 speech, which each earned “very” positive marks from 41 percent of viewers.”

A good indicator of how terrified his handlers are of Biden speaking unscripted is that Biden declared "executive privilege" in an attempt to keep the tapes of his testimony before the Special Counsel private.   That's the interview that the led the special counsel to conclude Biden lacked the mental capacity to be responsible for his actions.
