It was a truth bomb on Friday evening from former Kansas Senator Bob Dole on Twitter.
Dole, a Republican, admitted in his Tweet on Friday that members on the Commission on Presidential Debates, which is made up of Republicans and Democrats, don’t support President Donald Trump. The controversial decision by the commission to conduct the next Presidential debate remotely
“The Commission on Presidential Debates is supposedly bipartisan w/ an equal number of Rs and Ds,” said Dole. “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.”
Dole is right. The rules being established by the commission certainly are targeting and ostracizing Trump, while ignoring the very real issues plaguing Democratic candidate former Vice President Joe Biden.
The co-chair of the commission Frank Fahrenkopf, said Trump’s campaign presented “no evidence whatsoever” that he has tested negative for the coronavirus, after being released from Walter Reed Military Medical Center after a three day stint at the facility. He was released by doctors and has remained symptom free of COVID-19.
Trump has declined to do the virtual debate.
In an interview with Brian Kilmeade on Fox News, Fahrenkopf said he wanted to have a debate next week saying a virtual debate is the “safest way to go.”
“We’re talking about something that will happen in less than a week, if it had originally gone forward. Less than a week,” he told Kilmeade. “At this point in time, there is no evidence whatsoever whether or not when the president tested negative.”

50-Foot Christmas Tree Outside Fox News Set on Fire by 49yr Old Homeless Man
Just before 12:15 am Wednesday morning, an arsonist set fire to the 50-foot tree in front of Fox News’ Midtown headquarters on 6th avenue. The suspect, a 49-year-old with three prior arrests, was quickly caught and taken into custody.
The man has two previous arrests for drug possession and one for public intoxication. The motive is unclear, and Police Commissioner Dermot Shea said detectives are looking into whether mental illness was a factor.
“The suspect is identified as 49-year-old Craig Tamanaha, who is homeless, with a last known address in Brooklyn” reports ABC 7 New York. Police said the suspect climbed up “the metal superstructure” underneath the artificial tree and lit papers he had brought with him on fire, then shoved the papers into the tree structure.
He then climbed down and watched from the street level as it burned, and he was spotted by building security who pointed the man out to police officers posted in nearby Rockefeller Center,” reports ABC.
A lighter was found in his possession, and he has been charged with criminal mischief, reckless endangerment, arson, criminal nuisance, endangering others, criminal trespass, criminal tampering and disorderly conduct.
Fox says it will rebuild the tree, which took more than 21 hours to assemble and consisted of 10,000 glass ornaments and 100,000 lights.
