LOYAL SOLDIER: Gardner Regurgitates Trump’s Debate Talking Points Almost Verbatim
Trump Campaign: “DO NOT underestimate [Biden’s] abilities in a debate” as “Biden has 47 years of practice”
Gardner: Joe Biden is “very capable and able” with “47 years of experience”
Denver, CO – As Senator Cory Gardner goes to bat for President Trump before the first Presidential debate tonight, a leaked Trump campaign memo reveals that Gardner is regurgitating their talking points almost verbatim. While Gardner refused to utter the president’s name — per usual — he did carefully use Trump’s talking points to set the stage for the first presidential debate, even using a specific point from the Trump memo referencing a debate with Rep. Paul Ryan from nearly a decade ago.
Gardner: Well, look, I think, if you listen to what the President has been talking about, he’s talking about 47 months of experience as president versus 47 years of experience for Joe Biden in politics. Joe Biden is a very capable and able debate person figure. If you look at the Paul Ryan debate four years ago, he did a very good job against a very capable Paul Ryan. And so, I anticipate this being a pretty lively, good, even handed debate.
Gardner defending Trump ahead of tonight’s debate should come as no surprise as Gardner is with Trump “100%” — voting with him 98% according to Congressional Quarterly and falling in line with Mitch McConnell to give the president the “key vote” to get their right-wing anti-ACA and anti-choice Supreme Court nominee across the finish line just days before Coloradans start voting.
