Liberal Historian Bizarrely Blames CNN For Highlighting Biden’s Horrible Debate Performance


Allan Lichtman, the historian famous for accurately prediction presidential elections over the years, sounded like a Biden surrogate during a recent appearance on CNN, accusing the network of allowing former President Donald Trump to “lie” and “con” his way back to the presidency.

Lichtman, who teaches at American University, summarized the media’s coverage of the debate as unfairly focused on President Joe Biden’s stumbling performance while letting his opponent off the hook for making false or inflated claims about his record and positions.

“I love you guys in the media, but I have to say you are complicit in Donald Trump lying and conning his way to the presidency,” Lichtman said in a clip spotted by the Daily Caller. “All the attention has been on Biden’s faltering debate. But Donald Trump’s debate was vastly worse. It was based entirely on lies. More than 30 significant lies. That’s one lie for about every one minute and 20 and 30 seconds. He threatened our democracy by saying he wouldn’t accept necessarily the results of a fair election.” By doing so, he added, CNN is assisting “in Donald Trump gaslighting his way to the presidency and threatening our democracy.”

“He said he would seek retribution. Why wasn’t that the headline? Why wasn’t that the greatest concern from the debate rather than all the focus on Joe Biden?” he continued. “There’s an old saying: ‘It’s not just the evil people who wreak havoc on the world. It’s the good people who don’t do enough to stop them.’ And the media right now is complicit in Donald Trump gaslighting his way to the presidency and threatening our democracy.”


Left unsaid by Lichtman was the agreement by most mainstream media outlets that Biden is wholly unprepared to face Trump in November, let alone survive another grueling four-year term in office at the age of 81. The New York Times, New Yorker, Chicago Tribune, and Atlanta Constitution-Journal are among a slew prominent newspapers across the country that have called on Biden to suspend his campaign and allow the Democratic Party to nominate an alternate before it is too late. Surrogates for Biden, including former Democratic National Committee Chair and Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL), have suggested the consternation over Biden’s debate performance is only among coastal “elites,” prompting a sharp rebuke by CNN host John Berman.

“I just don’t think that’s true, congresswoman … I just think that anyone who was anywhere this weekend, talking to anybody, the subject of discussion was the debate and was President Biden’s performance. I don’t think that that discussion is only members of Congress,” Berman replied on Monday.
