Fear is a dark Trojan horse that, rather than being some sort of a gift, is more like an evil curse, one that can suck the lifeblood out of its victim, one that can paralyze, haunt and destroy.

If you have ever felt the tendrils of fear, chances are you can relate. There are few feelings more terrifying to feel than fear. And yet that is all convicted felon Donald Trump’s advisors are reportedly feeling. This is because of today’s debate. Trump’s handlers fear he’s headed toward doom.

He is. The debate rules really do not favor Donald Trump. He must know that. In addition, he will be standing nakedly, void of power, alone under hot spotlights. It’s inevitable that he himself feels that odious feeling we call fear.

His team is frightened he could “lose everything” at the debate. This is because Donald Trump is uncontrollable. He simply never misses a chance to bully, intimidate, talk out of turn, scream, and rage.

But the joke’s on him. President Biden knows Trump better than most people. He likely knows the felon better than the felon knows himself. He knows how to get under his skin. Perhaps THAT is reason enough for the Trump team to panic—and they ARE panicking. Biden’s strategy could be a game-changer.

Salon Columnist Brian Karem put it like this: “The RNC could resemble a roadhouse bar ion Mid-Missouri on a hot Saturday night after the beer taps run dry.”

It’s true. There will be no audience for the Donald to use. There will be mics that are abruptly cut. There will be moderators. These are the worst debate conditions imaginable for Donald Trump, yet he fell into President Biden’s trap. He accepted Biden’s offer, likely not even thinking of these rules, not even thinking that the whole debate is framed around his imminent failure.
