In another obviously biased political move, the Debate Commission has canceled the second round between Trump and Biden, citing “health concerns.”
The Commission on Presidential Debates on Friday canceled the second debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden after the President declined to do a virtual debate despite concerns over his Covid-19 diagnosis, organizers said.
The cancellation is the culmination of a furious 48-hour back-and-forth between the commission and both campaigns and means what would have been the third debate in Nashville on October 22 will likely be the final meeting between the two candidates. The Wall Street Journal was first to report on the commission’s decision.
“It is now apparent there will be no debate on October 15, and the CPD will turn its attention to preparations for the final presidential debate scheduled for October 22,” the commission said in a statement.
The commission, with the backing of their health advisers, announced on Thursday morning that — because Trump tested positive for the coronavirus — the debate that was scheduled for Miami would be held virtually, with the two candidates appearing from remote locations. Trump swiftly rejected that plan, saying he would not show up and setting off a series of events that put the future of all general election debates into question.

Of course, they’re blaming this all on Trump and these “health concerns.”
But Mike Huckabee just made a brilliant point on these so-called concerns:
Ain’t buying Debate Commission’s excuse they just couldn’t find TV crews willing to take risk to cover one of the biggest events of the year (if kids who stock shelves at Walmart can put on a mask and go to work, why can’t they?)

So true, right?
If you’re average American can slap on a mask and brave the constant onslaught of germs in a retail atmosphere, then what’s stopping a camera man from doing the same?
This all is yet another political stunt to make Trump look bad.
