After President Trump’s campaign requested that a neutral third party inspect the ears of both candidates and Joe Biden agreed days before the debate, the Democratic candidate backed out last minute – raising suspicion that Biden may have in fact had someone feeding him answers throughout the debate.
“Joe Biden’s campaign agreed to an inspection for electronic ear pieces at tonight’s debate several days ago but are now declining, a source familiar tells me,” the New York Post’s Ebony Bowden reported yesterday ahead of the debate.
Tim Murtaugh, the Trump campaign’s director of communications, confirmed the report on Twitter before expounding on the story.
“Joe Biden’s handlers several days ago agreed to a pre-debate inspection for electronic earpieces but today abruptly reversed themselves and declined. Biden’s handlers have asked for multiple breaks during the debate, which President Trump doesn’t need, so we have rejected that request,” Murtaugh said.
Trump also requested over the weekend that both candidates undergo a drug test – another seemingly harmless request denied by the Democrats campaign that raises serious suspicion about Joe Biden.
“On top of the refusal to take a drug test, it seems pretty obvious that the Biden team is looking for any safety net they can find in the hours leading up to the debate. With his 47 years as a failed Washington politician, how much help does Biden want?”
Biden campaign spokeswoman Kate Bedingfield attempted to label the requests as “completely absurd.”
“Of course he’s not wearing an earpiece and we never asked for breaks,” she told reporters on a phone call.
When asked whether Biden’s campaign had ever agreed to have an inspection done before the debate, strategist Symone Sanders declined to answer directly.
“This is so ridiculous. This is absolutely ridiculous,” she said.
“So… Biden’s campaign is refusing to answer the question?” Trump campaign official Matt Wolking remarked in a tweet.
Biden’s campaign attempted to shift the narrative away from Biden’s earpiece scandal by accusing the Trump campaign of asking debate moderator Chris Wallace not to mention the alleged death toll associated with COVID-19.
The Trump campaign responded promptly, calling this for what it was – “a lie.” Murtaugh said that “this is the heigh of playing politics with a public health crisis,” something the Democrats are very comfortable doing.
During the debate, Joe Biden appeared to reach in his suit and adjust something which some viewers are suggesting may have been a wire for an earpiece.
It’s not as “ridiculous” as the Biden campaign would have you believe that the Democratic candidate may have been wearing an earpiece and being fed information.
The basement dwelling candidate is known to rely heavily on teleprompters anytime he makes a rare public appearance. Even then, his speeches are riddled with blunder after blunder.
The 90 minute debate (while far from perfect) contained far less verbal gaffes than one would expect from old Joe who has become so prone to them.
