As the first presidential debate approaches, President Donald Trump once again demanded that Democratic nominee Joe Biden submit to a drug test, only for the Biden campaign to hilariously fire back.
The first debate between Trump and Biden is set for Tuesday night. Biden is prepared like the seasoned candidate he is while Trump plans to just wing it.
But despite the many times that Trump’s behavior has resulted in strong suggestions that he is high on Adderall, Trump has repeatedly claimed that Biden is taking drugs to give himself a debate edge.
And once again, Trump is demanding a drug test, even going so far as to insist that he will submit to a test as well.
I will be strongly demanding a Drug Test of Sleepy Joe Biden prior to, or after, the Debate on Tuesday night. Naturally, I will agree to take one also. His Debate performances have been record setting UNEVEN, to put it mildly. Only drugs could have caused this discrepancy???

Frankly, such an accusation and demand comes off as desperation. It’s like Trump is laying the groundwork to excuse a humiliating debate loss to Biden. It’s really not even worth responding to, but the Biden camp couldn’t resist doing so considering Trump’s alleged obsession with “golden showers” and his reckless response to the coronavirus pandemic.
“Vice President Biden intends to deliver his debate answers in words. If the president thinks his best case is made in urine he can have at it,” Biden deputy campaign manager Kate Bedingfield said in a statement. “We’d expect nothing less from Donald Trump, who pissed away the chance to protect the lives of 200K Americans when he didn’t make a plan to stop COVID-19.”
In all seriousness, Trump owes Biden and America an apology. His accusation and demand is unacceptable and makes him look weak. If anybody needs performance-enhancing drugs to get through debate night, it’s Trump.
