Here It Goes – DNC Says Joe Biden Needs Chair and Desk for Next Debate…

Posted on March 8, 2020

..And it begins; right on cue.

The DNC and CNN collaborate to provide Joe Biden with his preferred comfort format for the next debate on March 15th between Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden. The Club knows Biden does best in debate formats when sitting down at a desk; just like the 2012 debate between Biden and Paul Ryan.

CNN is hosting the debate, and CNN is the most friendly control operation for the needs of the Club. So what happens… CNN and The Club agree to a small venue town hall format where Joe Biden will be sitting down at a desk to debate Bernie Sanders.

It is all predictable in the extreme:
(Politico) Bernie Sanders wants to stand up at the next debate — and his campaign is accusing Joe Biden of wanting to sit down.
After a private call Friday with CNN, which is moderating the March 15 debate with the Democratic National Committee, Sanders’ team balked at a new proposed format for debate, saying it gives his opponent Biden too much of a break in their first one-on-one face-off. Biden’s camp denied that it was pressing for a sit-down debate.
The format for the next debate in Arizona — their first since Biden’s blowout Super Tuesday victories — would have the candidates seated for the first time this election cycle and take multiple questions from the audience. In the prior 10 debates, the candidates stood at lecterns and nearly all questions were asked by the professional moderators.
[…] The new format would be a town hall-style production featuring audience questions but in a more intimate setting with the candidates in chairs behind desks.
[…] “Joe Biden does not want to go head-to-head with Bernie Sanders, stand there for two hours, and go back and forth with Bernie Sanders,” Weaver said. “He wants it broken up with audience questions because he knows in that environment, he won’t fare very well.” (read more)
The “audience members” who ask questions will all be plants by the Club and CNN; and the Biden campaign will be provided all of the topics and questions well in advance to assist their rehearsal efforts just like they did for Hillary in 2016. Wash-Rinse-Repeat.

I'll bet he's off the trail in the next two weeks or however long it takes to get Plan B into place. That last gaffe was pretty bad. It's all over social media and extending beyond that.

Yeah, there's no way they'll let him run against Trump, he's too far gone.

So ALL the candidates get a chair and desk.

You are all the same - and so are we. (grumble-grumble - except for the Elite)

Very simple - have the debate around a large table. Even couch it in terms "Round Table Discussion."

Anyone who stands in emphasis (or to pound on the table) is disqualified.

So the winner will be "last human sitting."

I think they should just slug it out. Geriatric fisticuffs to figure out who is going to lose to Trump in the general election. Now that is a dem debate I would tune in to watch. Lets start a movement!

Sanders will do the next debate lying down. He has proven he can't go for the jugular in a campaign, just like when he agreed with Hillary about her emails in 2016 and then went quietly away for the price of a third house.

I'm not sure sitting will benefit Biden. He'll sound just as stupid as he does standing up.

What they really need is to have Joe suspended upside down. It's the only way enough blood flow will reach his brain in time to possibly fire off a coherent sentence.

I don't think the Biden / Sander's debate will ever happen Sunday.
The Media & DNC controls all the polls and what's said, and just like last Tuesday, they're going to make sure Joe wins ALL of tomorrow's primaries.
The Media & DNC will come out Wednesday and say there's no need to debate, Joe's going to win this.

And Bernie will nod in agreement as soon as he gets his payoff. Viva La Revolucion!

I also believe this way the NC & Media can consider the race DONE and move on to more and more constant non stop virus coverage. They want us to forget Biden for awhile so he can rest and lower his risk of catching the virus.
Out of sight, out of mind. No campaigning needed.
