House Speaker Nancy Pelosi suggested Thursday that former Vice President Joe Bidencancel his three scheduled debates with President Trump because the commander-in-chief would "belittle" the forum and engage in "skullduggery."

"I don't think that there should be any debates," Pelosi said out of the blue at a news conference at the Capitol, saying she doesn't want the debates to be "an exercise in skullduggery."

"I wouldn't legitimize a conversation with him, nor a debate in terms of the presidency of the United States. Now I know that the Biden campaign thinks in a different way about this."

Indeed, Biden told MSNBC Thursday he's still planning on showing up to the high-profile faceoffs with the president.
