With less than a week separating Americans from the first debate between Joe Biden and Donald Trump, both candidates are working up their last minute strategies and narratives ahead of the all-important contest.
Joe Biden has been sharpening his tongue, it seems, lashing out at Donald Trump in ever-more vicious ways. His sudden use of cynicism and sarcasm seems to be aimed directly at millennial voters who’ve long seen Biden as an “old fuddy-duddy”.
Trump, on the other hand, has been doing what Trump does: Laying down a scorched earth campaign of quips and soundbites that are meant to bring the entire affair to his level. That includes taking a few pot shots at moderator Chris Wallace.
Brian Kilmeade spoke to Trump on his radio show and he asked what role the president thinks Wallace will serve as he presides over the debate. Trump answered by bragging about his TV ratings, claimed Wallace likes him because of the ratings he brings during their interviews, and then he said “I would be willing to bet he won’t ask Biden tough questions.”take our poll - story continues below
“He’ll ask me tough questions and it’ll be unfair, I have no doubt about it,” Trump said. “But he’ll be controlled by the radical left. They control him.”
The idea that a Fox News anchor is somehow controlled by the “radical left” is a bit whimsical, to say the least, but, then again, President Trump is a results-driven leader whose words are not to be taken at face value 100% of the time. This could very well be Trump’s way of goading Wallace into proving that he’s not a victim of the liberals.
We’ll just have to wait and see if Wallace takes the bait.
