Trump has made public accusations that Joe Biden receives performance enhancing drugs, and is calling for a drug test before the Tuesday night debates.
While Biden declined to answer on Sunday when a reporter asked about Trump’s weird (but strong!) demand, the Biden campaign later decided to answer the question.
“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,” said Kate Bedingfield, Biden’s deputy campaign manager. “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.”
For months Trump has been trying to portray Joe as “sleepy,” setting expectations for Biden’s performance far lower than was prudent, leading Trump to backtrack on his attacks. He told one crowd that “they give [Biden] a big fat shot in the ass, and he comes out, and for two hours, he’s better than ever before.”
Biden’s long time advisors and observers note that Biden doesn’t even drink alcohol.
