Right-wing media focuses on 'imaginary controversy' suggesting Biden won't debate TrumpFormer Vice President Joe Biden is very much willing to debate President Trump this fall. But speculation on Fox News and other right-wing media outlets has suggested otherwise. | Analysis by OliverDarcy oliverdarcy CrappyNN false information. oliverdarcy Fox News saying something not true? I’m shocked! 🙄 I don’t care if they debate—I KNOW I’m voting for Biden. They aren’t really debates. They are shows for networks to see who they can “bring down”, embarrass, or to get elevated discussions. Do we really learn anything from them? oliverdarcy Ya..nice try! Bidens people will never let him..that's why dems will lose again! There is no excuse NOT TO DEBATE..but we all know bidens camp will come up with something and will be the laughing stock of the world..cant wait😂😂🥴🥴
