Should Warren and Biden go on Morning Joe?

Here was the narrative this morning from the hosts and guests Donnie Deutsch (the advertising guy) and Steve Rattner (the economics chart guy).
They said they knew “many, many” people that hate Trump and “really don’t want to HAVE to vote for him” but they have VERY GRAVE CONCERNS about Warren and Biden.
They think Warren will take everyone’s health care and Biden is too old and mentally slow now.

So, my question to the Warren and Biden staffs is should their candidates go on these shows to rebut them and state their case.

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Elizabeth Warren

3. I agree.its much harder to criticize someone to their face.

 

Plus I have faith in both Warren and Biden to explain their positions and make friends on the show.

2. The hand wringing was pathetic. They apparently can't make up their mind who to tear

 

apart this week,so they chose both.

4. They also blasted Bernie once when mentioning Warren saying he is equally unacceptable.

5. Yes.

 

The panelists on that show are very moody. Next week they'll say great things about Biden and Warren. Also, once they appear, the guests will say fewer negative things about them.

I don't know why they felt today was the day to beat up on Biden and Warren. It's not like there are not more important topics to discuss this morning.

EDIT: I just want to add that I saw a clip of Biden (the one in which he disses Giuliani) and thought he looked and sounded fantastic.

6. i didnt see concern over Biden, they said Biden was viewed as the one to beat trump.

 

Maybe i wasnt paying close enough attention.
But that point mirrors what i've heard from a couple trump voters who can no longer stomach him. Both have told me that Biden seems like a "reasonable" Democrat, but Warren would "force" them to vote for trump again.

To answer your question, yes, they should go on.

7. since morning joe helped get trump elected, I would not suggest any democratic candidate to go

 

on it as they will not be treated kindly and will be attacked. Clearly 180 degrees from how trump was treated.

The media is all about the gotcha/both sides do it bullshit now, more than ever

8. This morning's diatribe

 

was ridiulous! They spent half an hour dissing tRump and then another talking about how the Democratic frontrunners can't win! Trying to keep both management and viewers happy. Then Willie pops up with polls showing Biden way ahead! So do they really know what they are talking about? I think they are full of beans.

9. Donnie Deutsch can't admit he just might be wrong about Warren

 

And Rattner knows he won’t have access to her when she’s President. The electability differential with Biden gets smaller with every polling cycle, which is obviously the source of their anxiety. She’s doing perfectly fine without their buy-in, so what’s the point?

10. It happens every election season. Joe and Mica let trump call in almost every morning while talking

 

trash about Hillary in 2016.

No matter who the repub candidate is they will talk trash about the Democratic candidate. Also Chuck Tod will chime in.
