Second Debate in Peril as White House and RNC Push Back on Rules Change

Could Trump decline to participate on account of these new changes?

Something had to give after Tuesday night’s nightmare of a presidential debate, but just what needed to change is still up for discussion.

The American people were wholly embarrassed by the situation that unfolded before their eyes as President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden faced off in a contentious debate earlier this week.  Despite the best efforts of moderator Chris Wallace to enforce the rules, the debate devolved into an interruption-prone shouting match in which the time limits and subjects were thrown directly out of the window from the jump.

To combat this, the debate commission is looking at new ways of enforcing the rules of the contest, but President Trump’s team isn’t exactly thrilled about that.

Appearing on Fox News, Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel said that the commission should not make any adjustments without the support of both campaigns and that the rules should not be changed “in the middle of the campaign,” after both sides agreed to specific parameters.

McDaniel also suggested that the Commission on Presidential Debates was pursuing changes in order to assist Democratic nominee Joe Biden, arguing that the former vice president “got away” without answering tough questions at the first debate.

“I hope the Committee on Presidential Debates does not change the rules to once again protect Joe Biden from answering to the American people,” McDaniel said.

McDaniel went on to specifically lament the possibility that the moderators could have the ability to cut the audio from candidates who’ve gone over their time limits, which was something that a vast number of Americans expressed their desire for during Tuesday night’s horrific display of political putrescence.
