There are only three things President Trump loves more than a captive audience and a camera: women not named Melania, a smoothie made of goat’s blood and venom, and his son, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.).
So the president can kill it with his pump-faking antics like he won’t be attending next year’s presidential debates. On Monday—most likely because the entire political world is watching the impeachment happenings—Trump decided to strike up a beef with the Commission on Presidential Debates and even acted like he might not attend next year’s debates.
From the Hill:
The president, in a trio of tweets, said he looked forward to debating “whoever the lucky person is who stumbles across the finish line” in the Democratic primary.
But he chastised the nonprofit commission responsible for organizing the presidential debates and suggested he might avoid them. That group has scheduled three general election debates next year.
“As President, the debates are up to me, and there are many options, including doing them directly & avoiding the nasty politics of this very biased Commission,” Trump tweeted. “I will make a decision at an appropriate time but in the meantime, the Commission on Presidential Debates is NOT authorized to speak for me (or R’s)!”
We all know his thirsty ass will be there and mostly because he’s got nothing better to do. When the President isn’t playing with blocks or looking at flashcards to help him remember the names of people on his staff, he’s begging for attention on social media. According to the President, who is currently breaking world records for lying, the debate commission is “stacked with Trump Haters & Never Trumpers.” For proof, Trump pointed to
himself and said, “Me. I’m the proof and because it came out of my anus shaped mouth then it’s the truth!”“...an incident in a 2016 presidential debate in which the commission acknowledged technical issues with his microphone.”
The Hill notes that Trump is most likely stoking the flames from a New York Times report that claimed Trump was considering sitting out of the general election debates due to his bullshit belief that the nonpartisan debate commission is biased against him. Which, actually might be true for Trump who believes that being biased against him means not perpetuating his lies.
The Hill notes that while “Trump skipped a GOP primary debate in the 2016 race, he participated in all three debates in the general election against Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. Polls after each general election debate found voters saying Clinton performed better,” which, of course, Trump lied about later.
