Senator Elizabeth Warren appeared on the show “The Real” and made “clucking” sounds after suggesting President Trump was too chicken to debate Joe Biden virtually.
Elizabeth Warren said “He knows that he just got spanked in that first debate.”
“He got out there and he blustered and he strutted around. And a lot of Americans who might have been on the fence, might have supported him the last time around said, ‘I’m done with this guy.’”
“So I think that’s the main reason he didn’t show up,” Sen. Warren said.
Last week President Trump said that he wouldn’t engage in a virtual debate with Biden, after the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) announced that the planned Oct. 15 event would not be in-person to protect the health of those involved.
Trump — who announced that he had tested positive for COVID-19 days after the first debate — called a virtual debate a “waste of time,” claiming without evidence that the CPD is “trying to protect” his Democratic opponent.
The debate scheduled for this Thursday has been canceled, but one set for Oct. 22 is still on the books.
Biden’s campaign has announced that on Thursday he will instead participate in an ABC town hall.
