We’re closing in on start time for tonight’s Presidential Debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. I’m guessing the ratings will be through the roof. But who stands to lose the most in tonight’s debate?
To me, the answer to that question is relatively simple— President Trump. Many of you may be surprised by such a declaration, so let me explain why I’ve come to that conclusion. And it’s a fairly simple reason.
Nobody expects Joe Biden to do well. The former vice president’s gaffe’s are not only well-known, but they’re well-documented too. Just do a YouTube search and you’ll see that I’m telling you the truth. It’s some pretty funny stuff.
When House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said a month ago that Biden shouldn’t debate Trump, she claimed it was because she “wouldn’t legitimize a conversation” with the President. You and I both know that had nothing to do with it. She knows about Biden’s gaffes too.
Since nobody expects Joe Biden to do well, what does he really have to lose? Well, short of coming across as completely incoherent, not much. Donald Trump, on the other hand, isn’t in the same position.
I think it’s safe to say that pretty much everyone — who’s honest — expects President Trump to outperform Biden in this debate. But what happens if he doesn’t? What if “Sleepy Joe” somehow has an evening of clarity and throws some haymakers of his own?
If Trump is to have any chance of making gains coming out of this debate, he needs to crush Biden. He has to show that the gaffe-master just doesn’t have what it takes to deal with the rigors of being President of the United States.
On the other hand, a draw will accomplish nothing. And if, by some chance, Biden is perceived as the winner, it could be very problematic for the Trump campaign.
Tonight is Donald Trump’s opportunity to show America just how sleepy Joe Biden is. The president has everything to lose and very little to gain. I don’t think we can say the same about his opponent.
Times up. Do you have the popcorn ready?
