Bob Dole Breaks Silence, Says Republicans on Debate Commission Don’t Support Trump and Calls it Unfair

After much back and forth between Democrats, Republicans, President Trump, Joe Biden, and the Presidential Debate Commission over what comes next after Donald Trump and his wife recently contracted Covid-19, an unlikely supporter has come out from the quiet.

Former Senator and Presidential Candidate Bob Dole, a prominent Republican who has come out swinging for Trump in the recent past, has broken his silence with a bombshell accusation. Dole, who has lots of friends in politics, posted an articulate tweet on his official handle today, calling out what he sees as an unfair debate process.

Unfair to President Trump in his view. He says that although there is an equal number of Republicans and Democrats on the commission, he happens to know all the Republicans and he is concerned that “none of them” support President Trump.

This certainly is alarming since the last debate was such a fiasco with clear Trump hater Chris Wallace, and now that President Trump turned down the offer for a virtual debate, it isn’t even clear what will go down next with two debates left slated before the election between Trump and Biden Dole tweeted:

“The Commission on Presidential Debates is supposedly bipartisan w/ an equal number of Rs and Ds. I know all of the Republicans and most are friends of mine. I am concerned that none of them support @realDonaldTrump. A biased Debate Commission is unfair.”

Bob Dole is someone who has earned his stripes and served the United States well. At age 97, he should be listened to and respected by all. Is it time someone listened to his words and heeded the warning? Is the Presidential debate commission due for a shakeup?

Unlikely, but this speaks volumes as to the perceived deck being stacked against President Trump as an election looms in just weeks, right in the middle of an unprecedented time in our nation’s history.
