Norms: Biden Campaign Informs Commission of Presidential Debates It's Out of Step

As Twitchy reported earlier, President Joe Biden released a video (that was 13 seconds long and had at least five edits) challenging Donald Trump to a debate: "Well, make my day, pal," he taunted.

Remarkably, CNN already has a debate scheduled for June 27, almost as if it were coordinated. The debate will not be hosted by the Commission of Presidential Debates, a huge break in norms — instead, it will be done according to the Biden camp's demands, including no audience, no Robert F. Kennedy Jr., moderators must be from CBS, ABC, CNN or Telemundo, and Trump's mic will be cut off while Biden speaks. Trump has accepted nonetheless.

Why go around the Commission of Presidential Debates? Well, for one thing, Kennedy would be eligible to participate, and he might siphon votes away from Biden. The Biden-Harris campaign sent a letter to the commission with a lengthy explanation of why Biden wouldn't be participating in the Commission of Presidential Debates' announced dates in 2024.

All right, what does the letter say? "The Commission's model of building huge spectacles with large audiences at great expense simply isn't necessary or conducive to good debates." So no audience, then. The campaign goes all the way back to the original televised debates in 1960 as "a better, more cost-efficient way to proceed."

Also, the commission "was unable or unwilling to enforce the rules in the 2020 debates."

Come on, man.

Exactly.

We would really like to see Kennedy up at the podium with the other two candidates. He's earned his place there, but Biden's campaign won't allow it. We thought we were fighting against the end of democracy and instead we're getting candidates frozen out and taken off of the ballot.
