Showing that he’s terrified of debating Democratic Presidential nominee Joe Biden, President Donald Trump is now setting conditions on his agreeing to debate beginning next month, telling Byron York of the Washington Examiner that he wants Biden to take a drug test before they take the stage:
“Nobody thought that he (Biden) was even going to win. 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.”
According to Trump, Biden was a much better debater when it was just him matched up against Sanders. Of course, debating one person is easier than a group of people, but the president clearly didn’t bother to take that into consideration because he was too busy trying to start a new rumor/conspiracy theory to suit his purposes.
Trump then added:
“I don’t know how he could have been so incompetent in his debate performances and then all of a sudden be OK against Bernie. 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.”
But would Donald Trump actually submit to a drug test? Considering that it has been rumored for years that he’s a fan of amphetamines (especially Adderall, which he allegedly crushes and snorts), it seems unlikely.
It’s more likely that Trump is trying to do two things:
- Troll Biden like a third grader would
- Avoid debating unless Biden gives into his ridiculous demands
Whatever his motive, Trump is afraid. He knows he’s way behind in the polls and American voters have grown sick and tired of his lies and excuses. He needs a way to change the topic, but all he’s doing is proving that he’s unhinged and immature.
