Chris Wallace, the lefty shill from Fox News will moderate the first debate, which is scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 29 in Cleveland. Whether Joe Biden shows up either corporeally or even as a hologram, the real debate will take place between the President and Wallace, the lefty Media’s hatchet-man du jour. I expect the first question he’ll address to Joe Biden will be a yes or no question, “Do you agree that President Trump is criminally responsible for all COVID deaths?” Joe may flub this question by thinking it’s about him or by mistaking the term COVID for some kind of video-sharing service but either way it will be up to President Trump to slap Wallace around for most of the night in order to be declared the winner by the viewing public.
And I think he will. President Trump is a savvy media personality and he knows that Wallace is there to try and swing the election for Biden. And since Biden at this point is about as intellectually capable as a flat worm with its head cut off it’s up to Wallace to do the dirty work. And he will. He will go right to the COVID issue and try to portray every death as a crime that the President is responsible for. But let’s face it, Wallace isn’t all that convincing a liar. He always has that smug grin on his face and he always seems to be overreaching with his accusations and innuendoes. I expect the President to drill down into Wallace’s accusations and push back very hard. I hope the President calls him a liar and a lefty shill because that is exactly what Wallace is. Chris Wallace is a poor man’s version of the commie that his father was. Mike Wallace had gained credibility based on his long association with the news industry’s icons of yesteryear like Walter Cronkite and his work on the old television news series Biography and 60 Minutes. But his son hasn’t got the gravitas that the elder Wallace had or his sonorous voice. Chris’s voice is more of a nasal honk that annoys a lot of listeners. I confess I will be disappointed if Wallace doesn’t get knocked around in these exchanges. He really needs a good smackdown performed on him.
Now looking at the Biden component of the event, I am curious to see if his handlers try to use an ear piece to feed answer to Slow Joe. That would be fun to watch. Maybe we can pick up the signs that he is listening to an audio message. I wonder if the Secret Service has the capability to jam radio transmissions around the people they are protecting. And I wonder if the White House will have any kind of surveillance that picks up that kind of thing going on. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if after the debate an audio recording of someone prompting Joe were uncovered? Well, I shouldn’t be too greedy. I’ll settle to just watch and listen as Joe does his Biden act and eventually starts umming and uhhing at the end of every sentence he attempts to make.
And who knows, maybe they’ve loaded Joe up with pep pills to cut through the fog and he won’t embarrass himself. But as long as the President goes on the attack about the substance of Biden’s long and undistinguished record in government it will be enough to carry the night.
So, sure I’ll be watching. It could turn out to be a lot of fun. I just hope Joe doesn’t get flustered and wanders off into the crowd. He’d be bound to start sniffing hair and rubbing shoulders and even I have limits on what I’ll watch on tv.
