President Donald Trump has already attacked the upcoming presidential debates by demanding an extra one or for them to be held earlier, but now he is demanding that his Democratic opponent Joe Biden submit to a drug test, which is laughable.
Whenever Trump delivers remarks, he’s often sweaty and slurring his words. There have been many time when observers have wondered whether he is on drugs such as Adderall. Yet he had the gall to suggest that Biden is the one who needs drugs to debate during an interview with the Washington Examiner.
“Nobody thought that he was even going to win,” Trump said of Biden’s primary victory. “Because his debate performances were so bad. Frankly, his best performance was against Bernie. We’re going to call for a drug test, by the way, because his best performance was against Bernie. It wasn’t that he was Winston Churchill because he wasn’t, but it was a normal, boring debate. You know, nothing amazing happened. And we are going to call for a drug test because there’s no way — you can’t do that.”
Actually, bad debate performances do not mean that you can’t have good debates later on. Considering Biden had not debated anyone since 2012 because he was busy being Vice President for four years and then took a break to enjoy himself for the last three, it’s understandable that it would take him some time to get back into the game.
Trump then repeated himself.
“I don’t know how he could have been so incompetent in his debate performances and then all of a sudden be okay against Bernie,” Trump said. “My point is, if you go back and watch some of those numerous debates, he was so bad. He wasn’t even coherent. And against Bernie, he was. And we’re calling for a drug test.”
The same can definitely be said about every debate Trump has participated in as well as most of the remarks delivered during his presidency. If anyone should be drug tested before a debate, it should be Trump. And the very idea that Biden was on drugs can be instantly debunked because of Biden’s exemplary DNC Convention speech, which was flawlessly delivered.
Clearly, Trump is terrified of Biden if he is resorting to claiming that Biden has to take drugs to beat him. Trump knows Biden will run circles around him on the stage much like Hillary Clinton did in 2016, so he’s already making excuses for the impending humiliation he’s about to suffer on national television.
