Trump campaign press secretary Hogan Gidley argued Thursday that the flaws of former Vice President Joe Biden would make him an easy rival for President Trump in the upcoming debates.
Gidley was responding to Democratic strategist James Carville, who claimed that Biden would “defeat” Trump in a debate.
“Of course, Biden wants to debate Trump,” Carville said during an appearance on MSNBC. “Trump is a jerk, okay? Biden debated with Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders … Cory Booker, Amy Klobuchar.”
“Well, I love the fact that James Carville would point to Joe Biden’s previous debates,” Gidley replied in “America’s Newsroom.”

“Let’s be clear, that’s why he was the last in all the polls during the debates. It was only South Carolina that saved him. When you’re on the stage of the debate, you can’t contact like Joe Biden has done so many times.” and say ‘please, please bring me my documents. I need to read the fact sheet my staff gave me, ‘”he added.
In the early primary contests, Biden lagged behind candidates like Senator Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., And former Mayor of South Bend, Ind., Pete Buttigieg. However, Biden always took one of the first places in public opinion polls to determine who Democratic voters favored for the nomination.

Gidley predicted that Biden would make strange comments, recalling an anecdote from Biden last year about the hair on his leg.
Trump “obviously” benefits more from a debate with Biden, Gidley said.
“How many traps has Joe Biden had at the last minute? Only during this campaign. Forget the 50 years of politics he has been involved in, he is a prank machine,” said Gidley.
