On yesterday's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, Ezra was joined by The Federalist and Newsweek writer Benjamin Weingarten to discuss the fallout from the first round of presidential debates between President Trump and his Democratic challenger, Joe Biden.
Much of the discussion surrounding the debate has been focused on how chaotic the interactions between both candidates and moderator Chris Wallace became, with each talking over the other frequently, creating an environment where it was difficult for either side to score any substantive points on policy.
When Ezra asked Benjamin who he thought had won the debate, Benjamin looked at the numerous non-answers to important issues Biden gave, leading him to believe Trump had succeeded:
[Joe Biden] had no answer on court packing. He had no answer on Hunter Biden's corruption, and his relationship to it, because of course, Hunter Biden and his family members were profiting from all sorts of adversarial foreign regimes while vice president Biden was vice president.
The filibuster. Lack of support from law enforcement. Biden's accomplishments in 47 years versus Trump's accomplishments in 47 months. Coronavirus strategy. Environmental radicalism.
So President Trump got Biden on record (or not on record, as the case may be) on this litany of items, and he also broke through the veneer of this affable Uncle Joe.
I think he pretty effectively forced Biden to infuriate the left by denouncing all of the positions that are right in the Biden-Bernie Sanders unity agendas.
Benjamin is also the author of a very topical book called American Ingrate: Ilhan Omar and the Progressive-Islamist Takeover of the Democratic Party.
