WASHINGTON, DC –As the first presidential debate is nearing, it has become clear that members of the democratic party do not want Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden to debate current President, Donald Trump.
Of course, there are many slanderous reasons why, but the latest, from the Speaker of House, says a debate is not worth the time.
Current Democratic Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, has now come out saying, again, that Biden should not debate President Trump. Of course, many Republicans believe this is because Biden could not possibly keep up with the President without a teleprompter and without significantly blundering.
If that would be the case, democrats could not possibly admit that was the reason. After all, they have worked hard at propping Biden up and have been able to keep any hard questions from being asked of him.
They have also taken many steps to keep Biden out of the public eye. Some believe this is because he may or may not be suffering from some type of mental decline. Stopping Biden from doing any type of debate with the President would be a wise move if Biden is truly starting to slip mentally.
Pelosi, on an interview with CBS “This Morning” that Biden should not go through with any type of debate. She claimed that the President does not tell the truth and has no allegiance to the constitution. Claims, of course, she cannot back up but she is never asked to provide real examples.
The host of the show, Gayle King, asked:
“Tuesday is a big debate. The first debate between the two of them, between Joe Biden and Donald Trump. You had earlier suggested that you didn’t think Biden should debate. Do you still feel that way?”
“I do. Not that I don’t think he’ll [Biden] be excellent. I just think that the President has no fidelity to fact or truth, and actually, in his comments the last few days, no fidelity to the Constitution of the United States.
“He and his henchmen are a danger with their comments, are a danger to our democracy. So, I didn’t want to give him – you know, why bother – you know, he doesn’t tell the truth, his isn’t committed to our Constitution.”
King, seemingly took issue that Pelosi had just referred to the supporters of the President as henchmen. King asked:
“Your language to some is just as egregious as what they’re saying by calling the President’s people henchmen. Some could say that’s just as insulting as what he’s saying about you.”
Pelosi, seemingly not concerned about the words she used said:
“Well, I don’t care what he says about me. Every knock from him is a boost for me. If he wants to help me raise money, he can keep knocking me.
“But I’m speaking truth. Our Constitution is at the mercy of people who have no allegiance to the Constitution of the United States.”
Despite Pelosi’s desire for there to not be any debates, Biden still plans on doing them. He talked about Pelosi and others calling for him not to debate in August. He said:
“I’ve been recommended to me by a number of very competent people who know their way around, including leading Republicans, that I shouldn’t debate Trump unless there’s a fact-checker on the ground…saying ‘That’s true,’ ‘That’s not true.’
“But look, I think everybody knows this man has a somewhat pathological tendency not to tell the truth….as long as the Commission [for Presidential Debates] continues down the straight and narrow as they have, I’m going to debate him.”
Watch: Joe Biden faces huge backlash after playing Spanish sex song to court Latino voters – ‘beyond patronizing’
KISSIMMEE, FL- Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is facing harsh criticism over an incident that is being described as both embarrassing and patronizing where he played a Spanish sex song in an attempt to “connect” with Latino voters in the sunshine state.

The Daily Wire reported that the incident happened as Biden spoke to Latinos during an event to kickoff Hispanic Heritage Month. After being introduced by Luis Fonsi, the singer of the national hit, Biden said:
“I just have one thing to say.”
He then proceeded to hit play. In the video that has been widely circulated on social media, Fonsi can be heard saying:
“There you go, dance a little bit, Joe. Come one.”
Biden began bobbing his head along to the beat of the 2017 reggaeton sensation before turning it off and placing his phone back in his pocket. Biden then proceeded to say:
“I’ll tell you what, if I had the talent of any one of these people, I’d be elected president by acclamation.”

Apparently, he was referring to Fonsi as well as singer Ricky Martin and actress Eva Longoria, who spoke ahead of Biden at the event. The incident immediately sparked reactions all over social media. Catalina Lauf, former GOP congressional candidate said via Twitter:
“In general, this is beyond patronizing. But, are we surprised he picked the song with the title ‘Slowly?’ Really embodies the whole theme of his campaign, really #SlowSinkingShip.”
In general, this is beyond patronizing.

The criticism didn’t just come from GOP supporters. Sema Hernandez, a far-left activist tweeted:
“I love that song, but when Biden plays it I think back to the very credible story of Tara Reade recounting the sexual abuse she suffered while working for Biden. It’s really disturbing. Make it stop.”

According to reports, Biden has been struggling among Latino voters, especially in Florida. A recent poll showed President Donald Trump ahead within that key voting bloc, 50% to 46%. In response, the Biden campaign has been reaching out to Spanish-language media and by holding events like the one in Kissimmee, which was hosted by Fonsi, Longoria, and Martin.
Trump’s campaign adviser Steve Cortes tweeted that the playing of “Despacito” was indicative of Biden’s struggles to connect with Latino voters. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) recently appeared on “Fox & Friends” and was asked whether he thought the incident helped or hurt Biden with Latino votes. Rubio said:
“I don’t know if it matters. I mean, he was standing next to the guy who wrote or performed the song, Luis Fonsi.”
“Here’s the bottom line: at the end of the day the people who are going to decide this election that happen to be of Hispanic dissent, especially in central Florida, these are very hard-working people. What they want is what everyone wants. They want to be able to own a home. They want a job that brings dignity.”
Rubio the said how Trump would be the candidate better able to secure those jobs for Latinos in the sunshine state.
The week prior to Biden’s “Despactio” incident, his running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) showed up unannounced to a Venezuelan restaurant in Florida in another attempt to “connect” with Latinos in a state where Biden is struggling.
Because Venezuela is a socialist run country and everyone can see through the evilness of the @JoeBiden @KamalaHarris party!!! She deserves to be called out for complete disregard for the owner of this restaurant! Snakes everywhere and she is the Dirty🐍 RT#DirtySnakeKamala https://t.co/fRnq9gwGT9

According to reports, her unannounced visit ended with the restaurant owner saying that she was not welcome in his restaurant. The owner added that if he had been asked to host Harris, his answer would have been no. He said:
“We don’t use the company for political reasons. We are very respectful of every individual in our organization. We would never take, as an organization, a political position.”
“With respect to our stakeholders, we wouldn’t support that. If they would ask, we would say, ‘No, we’re not going to do that.”
