Trump Can’t Stop Whining About Imaginary Bias By Debate Moderator

Perhaps the most prominent of the myriad character flaws of Donald Trump isn’t his pathological lying, his infantile name-calling, his glaring ignorance, or his raging hostility. Perhaps it’s the relentless whining and victimhood that gushes from him whenever he is faced with even a mild challenge. It’s a pitiful display of the cowardice that permeates his personality, or lack thereof. No wonder Trump has bragged about being the most fabulous whiner.”

Donald Trump, Joe Biden, Debate Stage

This “feature” of Trump’s emotional frailty has been evident recently in his reaction to the upcoming and final presidential debate with Joe Biden. Note that the first of the scheduled debates resulted in Trump harassing both Biden and the the moderator, Chris Wallace, with repeated interruptions. That led to the Commission on Presidential Debates implementing a new rule wherein the mic of the opposing candidate will be muted during designated two minute periods at the beginning of each topical segment. The second debate was canceled altogether because Trump was afraid to participate remotely.

In advance of the final debate before the election, Trump is ramping up his griping about how unfair everyone and everything is to him. He has been complaining for several days that the debate, like the election itself, is “rigged” against him. And on Tuesday morning he took that complaint to Fox News so he could get some sympathy from the “Curvy Couch” potatoes of Fox and Friends.

During the discussion, co-host Ainsley Earhardt asked Trump about the new rule for muting the mic. Trump replied by calling the Commission “ridiculous” and then segued to accusing them of purposely muting his mic in the 2016 debates with Hillary Clinton (which never happened). He said they are “not good people” and that “a lot of funny things go on with them.” Then he shifted to maligning the moderator of Thursday’s debate, Kristen Welker of NBC News, in a rambling word salad with an overflowing jug of whine:

“I just went through Savannah Guthrie. I knew what I was getting into and it worked out fine. But she was out of line. She was totally out of line. And so was Chris Wallace. I know you’ll defend him, but so was Chris Wallace. He was terrible. It was like two on one, and that was just fine with me. But at least they should admit that it was two on one.” […]

“Kristen Welker is terrible, I mean she is totally partisan. Her father and mother are big supporters of Joe Biden for a long time. They’re supporters of the Democrat Party. And she deleted her entire account. […] “Kristen Welker is far worse than [CSPAN’S Steve] Scully, but I do it anyway, I do it anyway, But this is the way it is. It’s so set up.”

For the so-called “Leader of the Free World,” Trump sure behaves like a petulant toddler who doesn’t get his way. And needless to say, he is lying about Welker. She is a straight-down-the-middle journalist who doesn’t exhibit any political bias in her reporting. The party affiliations of her parents, even if true, are irrelevant. And she did not delete her Twitter account.

Trump made no effort whatsoever to support his contention that Welker “can’t be neutral at all.” What’s more, He falsely asserted that the Commission changed plans to make foreign policy the sole topic of the debate. That notion was birthed entirely in his warped imagination. The Commission’s only reference to debate topics came in their announcement on October 16, of the topics that were chosen by the moderator.

For the record, the topics are fighting COVID-19, American families, race in America, climate change, national security, and leadership. If those topics bother Trump it’s only because he knows he can’t discuss them with anything approaching coherence. Nevertheless, he sought to disparage Biden’s debating skills by telling his Fox friends that…

“There is a chain of thought, that there are a lot of people that say let him talk, because he loses his train, he loses his train, he loses his mind, frankly.”

If Trump actually manages to muster up the discipline to let Biden talk without interrupting (doubtful), he will be sorely disappointed as Biden demonstrates far a superior grasp of the issues and a relatable empathy for the American people. In fact, Trump’s strategy would work much better for Biden. Just let Trump talk. The more people hear him, the more they despise him. Every time Trump opens his mouth Biden’s lead in the polls gets bigger. So please proceed, Donnie.

UPDATE: Trump is proceeding with his manic media maligning. He reportedly stomped out of an interview for 60 Minutes with Leslie Stahl, and is now berating her as biased.

  1. We can expect no different from the orange tweeter. Anytime the orange whiner gets on a level playing field, this impeached pretendent cries, projects and sniffles that everything has got to be rigged against him. Having a muted mike is not enough; there should be a plexiglas divider between them.

    • Alternatively, TrumpetArse can go on the Mexican side of his famous bloody Wall.

      No-one ever said, ‘No, Don. You may not have / do that’ with any authority because he would’ve stamped his little feet, screamed and threatened to hold his breath until he turned purple. When he whined that he didn’t break the window/vase/whatever with the football and blamed a sibling, it was accepted. He was an over-privileged, over-entitled brat in a day and age when such creatures were rare. There would have been something evidently and obviously wrong with child Don back then and no-one made a move to find out what it was because it was easier to give in. He was never made to sit on the naughty step. Everyone just gave in to him and that’s continued all his life. People accepted it because he had Daddy’s money to throw around. He could scream, ‘YOU’RE FIRED!’ and lo, it was so. In the last 4 years, at an advanced age, he’s not getting the reactions he’s come to expect and has received all his life. He can whine that ‘he didn’t do it’ and ‘it’s not fair’ and ‘it’s rigged’ all he likes, not enough people are buying it and they’re telling him that they don’t buy it. He can’t talk all he likes and interrupt and shout over what he doesn’t want to hear – he’s going to get restricted ‘silent’ time and ‘That’s not fair!’ he whines. ‘HE was doing all the interrupting, it wasn’t me!’ You could make him sit and watch that debate, put him in charge of keeping count of the interruptions and he’d STILL deny it because truth and accepting responsibility for his behaviour is something he’s never been taught.
      He can’t tell outrageous lies now because everyone DOESN’T believe him. He faked sick with Covid to get sympathy and ‘I’ll make everyone sorry and then they’ll all vote for me again.’ He can scream all he likes that the POTUS is above the law – but he won’t always be the POTUS. The minute he hands over to the incoming, the investigations of his malfeasances will begin and the charges will be flying thick and fast. He will NOT be able to evade them. None of his previous reactions are going to work any more. He is going to have to pay. Daddy isn’t around any more to bail him out with wadges of cash.

      All he has done for four years is employ those same old tactics from the behaviour pattern that was set 70 years ago. Little Donnie found out that it worked. But ‘adult’ Donnie (ha-ha) is completely unable to accept that these tactics don’t work in the grown-up world. He thinks if he keeps doing it, eventually he’ll get his own way by the simple process of wearing everyone down until he gets what he wants. It worked for years, but it doesn’t work any more. I believe that these continual efforts that don’t get the results now that he wants, are what’s sending him insane. He’s always been unstable – but because he’s not getting his own way 24/7 anymore, not everyone in the world worships him, not everyone in the world loves him, not everyone in the world applauds his cleverness every 3.7 minutes, the instability is just getting worse and more evident, literally by the hour. When he loses this election, I hate to think what he’s going to be like. Because the American people are not just going to give him the Presidency just to shut him up.

      His idea of being President was to get what he wanted. He could bully and shout and get it all his own way, like he did in the sandpit when he was five years old. And the political arena of the world is far bigger than a sand pit and certainly doesn’t have the same rules. He was literally the last person in the world, the most unsuitable person who could have been voted in as POTUS. The US voters elected a cute performing child, who can do a nice little party piece, to do an adult’s job. But being able to nicely recite a five line poem is a long way from being capable to lead the free world. I looked up the rules of presidential campaigning and found there’s no real health checks that candidates must undergo before campaigning – apparently the rigours of the campaign trail sort out the wimps from the warriors, so to speak. When Mr Biden wins, I’m hoping that he can do something about this. Because if a mental health assessment had been done on Trump in 2015, he would have been found wanting, big-time, and he would not have been allowed to stand. The damage he’s done to the US and the world is immeasurable and it’s going to take decades to fix. God help America.

  2. You should have fun with what the whining little baby was whinging on about today. Apparently, Baby Tyrant didn’t like his interview with Lesley Stahl, so he’s acting like the two year old with his hands in the cookie jar.

    I am pleased to inform you that, for the sake of accuracy in reporting, I am considering posting my interview with Lesley Stahl of 60 Minutes, PRIOR TO AIRTIME! This will be done so that everybody can get a glimpse of what a FAKE and BIASED interview is all about…

    …Everyone should compare this terrible Electoral Intrusion with the recent interviews of Sleepy Joe Biden!

    Hush little baby!
    Don’t say a word!
    Donnie’s gonna spew an awful turd!
    And if that turd doesn’t stink to high hell!
    Donnie’s gonna spew yet another one!

    • Oh, and first Tyrant bytched that she wasn’t wearing a mask. Yep, the mass murderer who NEVER wears a mask is complaining that someone ELSE wasn’t wearing a mask.

    • I’ll check that interview out, thanks! Love the satire, too.
