Democratic vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris said Joe Biden has no intention of canceling future debates after the first debate went off-the-rails, with President Trump and Biden interrupting each other and shouting at various points.
“Joe Biden’s never going to refuse to talk to the American people and have any opportunity that he can to speak directly to American families and speak about the issues, speak the truth, and address the facts of where we are now,” Harris told CNN’s Jake Tapper. Harris was reacting after Tapper asked: “Do you think Joe Biden should participate in a second or third debate?”
At another point, Harris refused to answer when asked if Biden plans to pack the Supreme Court if elected in order to ensure a liberal majority.

Meanwhile, Biden campaign adviser Symone Sanders doubled-down on Kamala Harris’ debate stance in an interview with MSNBC’s Brian Williams.
Williams suggested that there’s no reason for Biden to participate in any more debates.
Basically, Williams implied that the debates could only hurt Biden because he might commit another embarrassing gaffe or get steamrolled if President Trump confronts him about his spotty 47-year political career.
Williams said: “Other than the optics of saying, ‘We don’t want to do this anymore,’ what’s the upside in doing two more of these?”
Sanders replied: “Tonight you saw Joe Biden multiple times turn to the camera and speak directly to the American people at home, so I think that’s the upside. Folks want to hear, you know, what is your plan to help us get out of this [coronavirus crisis].”
After discussing some other topics, Brian Williams then suggested again that Biden should not participate in any more debates.
This is a stance that many Democrats and liberal pundits took before the first debate, which is to limit Biden’s public appearances as the election draws closer.
Williams asked: “Did no one on the payroll say, ‘I don’t know why we’re going to do this again? All the norms were blown up tonight. Why bother with rules or moderators or time limits? Why are we doing any more of these?’ No one expressed that view?”
Sanders replied: “Brian, when Vice President Biden came off the debate stage tonight, we went back and told him he did an excellent job. He broke through, speaking directly to the American people. All Donald Trump did was sow chaos and he lied. We’re going to come back and do this again in Miami.”
The second presidential debate takes place in Miami on October 15.
Sanders continued: “Joe Biden is going to show up, and he’s going to answer the people’s questions in Miami. Donald Trump, we all know what he’s going to do. I hope he’s not going to belittle and berate voters in Florida, but you know what? You never know, Brian. But Joe Biden will be there to show you exactly what you can get post-November 3rd if folks go to the polls and elect him as the next president.”
Williams then apparently relented in his suggestion that Biden cancel future debates by replying: “Fair enough.”
Former NBC News personality Megyn Kelly said once again, the media and Democrats are suggesting that Biden limit his public appearances.
However, Kelly said Biden would look like a coward and be mocked if he backed out, so he has to debate.
Kelly tweeted: “Dems already saying there shouldn’t be any more debates. Not a chance they cancel the others. Can you imagine how weak Biden would look?”
