Biden is furious over this.
According to the Daily Caller, Sen. John Kennedy slammed 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden stating that he would be “a walking dead man politically” if he skips the presidential debates.
“Right before he went into battle, some lieutenant probably told Custer, don’t worry about it we can take these guys,” Kennedy joked. “That’s the category I put speaker Pelosi’s advice in. I hope Vice President Biden takes it because if he takes it and doesn’t debate he’s a walking dead man politically.”
“You can’t stay in your hidey hole,” he said. “You got to get out and see people and debate. And I don’t, you know, I think the speaker has been tripping to think that the American people are going to tolerate having a party nominee not debate for the most important powerful job in the world, but having said it, you know, the politician in me says well, I hope the vice president takes the speaker’s advice.” You can read the full article here.
