The first presidential debate is in the books.
Americans are processing what they spent 90 minutes watching.
And now Tucker Carlson explained that Donald Trump made this big mistake in the debate.
Thanks to Chris Wallace’s biased and poor moderating style, the first debate was a dumpster fire.
Some Trump supporters thought the President was off his game.
Tucker Carlson thought Donald Trump provided an opening for Joe Biden by spending so many weeks and months battering Biden for his obvious senility and mental decline.
Carlson explained that although Biden’s mental decline was obvious for all to see, President Trump set the expectations so low that when Biden didn’t forget what day of the week it was, voters that were turning for the first time saw Biden as a somewhat competent alternative.
“As a political matter, the main thing we learned last night is that it was a mistake to spend so much time focusing on Joe Biden’s mental decline. Yes, it’s real. Yes, Joe Biden is fading, we’ve showed you dozens of examples of it for months now. But on stage last night, Biden did not seem senile. If you tuned in expecting him to forget his own name — and honestly we did expect that — you may have been surprised by how precise some of his answers were — not all of them, but enough of them. Trump isn’t going to win this race by calling Joe Biden senile, nor by the way is Joe Biden going to win by calling Donald Trump a racist, as he repeatedly did last night. That slander didn’t work four years ago, it will not work now,” Carlson told his viewers.
Carlson also stated that Joe Biden offered radical positions on calling America racist, the Green New Deal-style legislation, government-run health care and raising taxes but he did so in a reserved manner that would not frighten anyone.
Tucker compared that to Trump who defended America and the values that made it great, but did so in his flamboyant style that made Trump sound like the radical.
“Amazingly, tragically, many people watching last night may have concluded that Joe Biden is the stable, steady alternative,” Tucker Carlson concluded.
Being judged the loser of the first presidential debate is not fatal for an incumbent.
Americans judged that Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush and Barack Obama all lost their first debate in their re-election campaign before righting the ship and winning re-election.
According to Tucker Carlson, the two lessons Donald Trump needs to take into the next debate in two weeks are moderating his tone and setting the proper expectations to make it difficult for Joe Biden to look good so the American people take notice of his cognitive decline.
