The Eye Roll-Worthy Reason Pelosi Just Said There Shouldn't Be Any Presidential Debates

"I myself, just don’t tell anybody I told you this, especially don’t tell Joe Biden," House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told Capitol Hill reporters on Thursday. "I don't think there should be any debates."

"I do not think that the president of the United States has comported himself in a way that anybody has associations with truth, evidence, data and facts," Pelosi said of President Trump. "I wouldn't legitimize a conversation with him." 

Pelosi said she doesn't want to see a repeat of 2016, with Trump "stalking Hillary Clinton like that." During one part of the candidates' town hall debate, Trump appeared to stand directly behind Clinton while she was answering a question. The speaker said it was "disgraceful" and that she would have told Trump to stay in his corner of the stage.

Pelosi believes that Trump will act in a way that is "beneath the dignity" of the office and "belittle" the debates. She also used the word, "skullduggery" more than once.

Instead, she suggested, the nominees should "take their own stage" so they can have a more direct conversation with the American people.

Most others following this race believe that the debates will tank Biden's campaign because he can barely get through a 5-minute TV or radio interview without making some memorable gaffe. With a two-hour or so live conversation with the president, the odds are high that Biden will have another "You ain't black" moment.

Top Republicans say this is the biggest piece of evidence yet that Democrats are "desperate" to keep their nominee in the basement.

As for Biden, he says he can't wait to get on the debate stage.
