Democrat Tactics

Laura Ingrahm, host of The Ingrahm Angle on Fox News says that the Democrat strategy revolved around three main pillars of deflecting, demonize and demoralize. Ingraham said the leftist media assisted Biden in deflecting the fact that Mike Pence won the vice presidential debate against Sen. Kamala Harris. Fox News reported.

“She’s the tough former prosecutor who rose to prominence on her wit and grit, and when she gets in trouble, she’s suddenly the damsel in distress being mansplained by the mean Mike Pence,” Ingraham said.

Other attempts at deflection explain Biden’s refusal to answer questions, such as the ominous threat of packing the Supreme Court, she said. The former vice president has also been deflecting legitimate questions by dodging debates. Fox News reported.

“Biden knows that court-packing is very unpopular and unprecedented,” she said. “So he just punts the question. Yet, if Trump doesn’t give his minute by minute blood oxygen reading to the jackals in the White House press corps, they pounce.”

The Democrats have a history of demonizing the Trump administration, most recently criticizing the president for recovering from COVID-19. All while Biden “greenlit” disrespect for Trump at the last debate by referring to him as a “clown” and telling him to “shut up.”

“The left has encouraged the disrespect of any and all authority, especially the president,” Ingraham said. “They demonize Trump because they can’t sell Biden… In the end, you’re choosing between liberty or lockdowns. Between law and order or chaos.”

Inghram said that the Democrats have attempted to demoralize voters and the election by suppressing turnout and citing “lousy” polls indicating a Biden lead. And if the polls don’t work, she said, fear-mongering via coronavirus has been the recent fallback.

“They want COVID to dominate your thinking so that you forget about what life was like before pandemic,” she explained. “Keeping you hopeless means keeping you helpless and dependent on government. That’s not who we are as Americans.”

 

Questions over the next debate moderator

Presidential debate moderator Steve Scully has been accused of not being impartial leading up to the next presidential debate.

Previously the moderator had a photo taken with Vice President Joe Biden, saying, “you gotta love the VP”. 

Questions are now being raised over a recent tweet to a staunch critic of Donald Trump by Steve Scully. The tweet sparked controversy on Thursday night as the public wanted answers.

Donald Trump Jr. responded on Twitter: “Are you kidding me. Steve Scully the former Biden intern and moderator of the next debate thinks he’s DMing… but he’s doing it out loud. Yea, totally not a setup. Journalism is dead.”

The news comes after the Commission on Presidential Debates announced early on Thursday that it was changing the debate to be a virtual debate. The Daily Wire Reported

President Donald Trump said in an interview shortly after the announcement that the decision was “not acceptable.”

“I’m not going to do a virtual debate,” Trump said. “I’m not going to waste my time on a virtual debate. That’s not what debating is all about. You sit behind a computer and do a debate. It’s ridiculous. And then they cut you off whenever they want. I have a host, who I always thought was a nice guy, but I see he’s a never-Trumper, you know, came out that he’s a never-Trumper. And we do have some of them, Maria, believe it or not, because they don’t like to win.”
