Sen. John Kennedy: Biden Should Take Pelosi’s Advice To Not Debate Trump

Senator John Kennedy urged 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden to take House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s advice and not debate President Donald Trump.

The Louisiana Republican said on Fox Business’ “Sunday Morning Futures” that not debating Trump would mean Biden was a “walking dead man politically.”

 

Sen. Kennedy: ‘I hope Vice President Biden takes it, because, if he takes it and doesn’t debate, he’s a walking dead man politically’

Fox Business’ Maria Bartiromo said to Sen. Kennedy, “And, in concentrating on the next election, this week, Nancy Pelosi said that Joe Biden shouldn’t do any debates.”

“Yes, I saw that,” Kennedy replied.

“Your reaction?” Bartiromo asked.

Sen. Kennedy responded, “Right before he went into battle, some lieutenant probably told Custer, don’t worry about it. We can take these guys.”

“That’s the category I put Speaker Pelosi’s advice in,” the Republican continued. “I hope Vice President Biden takes it, because, if he takes it and doesn’t debate, he’s a walking dead man politically.”

Bartiromo reacted, “Unbelievable.”

Kennedy says Pelosi ‘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’

Kennedy continued, “The American people aren’t going to vote for a president without — without — without seeing him.”

“You can’t stay in your hidey-hole,” Kennedy warned. “You have 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,” Kennedy added.

“But, having said it, you know, the politician in me says, well, I hope the vice president takes the speaker’s advice,” Sen. Kennedy ended.

Bartiromo responded, “Just extraordinary.”
