5 Ways 2020 Democrats Avoid Debate Questions

Just because you're in a presidential debate doesn't mean you have to answer what they ask you... here are five tips to dodge the questions.

Tips on how to do it too

TIP #1

Stamp effect on the #1 Keep the focus on President Trump. From the outset of his campaign, Biden -- one of the Democratic frontrunners -- has focused his energies on criticizing Trump as well the other candidates on the stage. Whatever hostility there is between the two may have intensified after President Trump took aim at both the former vice president and his son's business dealings.

TIP #2

Discredit the question. What suited candidate Trump’s needs in 2016 was a type of engagement that eviscerated opponents on the debate stage by assigning high-profile Republicans nicknames meant to demean and discredit. Who can forget Lying Ted, Low-Energy Jeb or Little Marco?

TIP #3

Answer a question that wasn't asked. Joe Biden, who said in his answer to the impeachment question that the House has “no choice” but to move forward, brushed aside a subsequent question from Anderson Cooper, of CNN, about his son’s business by saying, “Look, my son did nothing wrong. I did nothing wrong.” Pressed for details—Hunter had been paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to sit on the board of a Ukrainian gas company—Biden added, “My son’s statement speaks for itself.”

TIP #4

Just change the question entirely - With the United States heading into one of the most important and divisive elections in its history, as the nation wrestles with challenges like climate change, health care costs and immigration, the final question at the 4th Democratic primary debate in 2019 centered on comedian-turned-talk-show-host Ellen DeGeneres.

TIP #5

Stall by thanking everybody possible - When in doubt, just say thank you. There is no downside. Are the candidates honestly worried about showing too much gratitude to the possible voters?

    So the only thing for Biden & all the others is removing Trump....Not helping our country in any way!! None of them have answers....Just more lies to try to impeach Trump. Let the American people speak. Neither of these candidates can hold a candle to Trump They don't love our country!!!

    Trump has done almost everything that he said he would do with little to no help from Democrats. Think of what he could of done with a little help from the left. I will vote for Trump again in 2020. God bless America and God bless Mr. Trump

    The democratic candidates literally couldn’t answer a single question. You get more compelling answers from an elementary class election.

    It's ok for anyone's son to be involved in foreign business. Or anyone's daughter. Or anyone else. A problem only arises by circumstance. I have no time to explain how circumstances are relevant. I'm not rationalizing or dodging. One on one tutoring available upon request.
