Trump Should Not Debate Biden Unless...

Notorious gaslighter Thomas Friedman (who once claimed Christopher Columbus discovered that the world was round) recently argued in the pages of the New York Times that a debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden would be unfair. His reason? Tax returns.

With riots, economic crisis, and coronavirus on Americans' minds, no reasonable person thinks that personal finances are going to play a crucial role in this year's debates. Friedman is obviously trolling. He knows that the unfairness of the debates really stems from disparate cognitive ability. But he, like many in the Democratic Party, are desperate to give Biden an excuse to avoid the debate stage. Or, alternatively, if presidential debate is inevitable, they hope to ensure that Biden steps out onto the stage with as many crutches as humanly possible. That brings me to Friedman's second excuse for Biden.
