WASHINGTON D.C. – As the first debate between the President of the United States and the former Vice President draws closer, President Trump took to Twitter to call for a mandatory drug test of Joe Biden, either before or immediately following that debate.
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???

And his competitor for the Oval Office isn’t having any of it.
Joe Biden just announced that he will not agree to a Drug Test. Gee, I wonder why?

Now, before anyone comes unhinged and says that this is a ridiculous request from the POTUS, keep in mind that we are consistently being told that we need to listen to the medical experts regarding our health when it comes to COVID and social distancing/mask wear.
So it only stands to reason that we should respect the medical opinions of the people qualified to make those calls.
Mark Siegel, who is a doctor and frequent Fox News contributor, was on Tucker Carlson’s show on the 21st. According to heavy.com, Siegel told Carlson that:
“…’many neurologists’ have told him that Biden’s gaffes are likely not gaffes, but indicative of cognitive issues. ‘These are not isolated,’ he claimed, also prefacing his comments by admitting he has not examined Biden and did not ‘have a clinical diagnosis to make.’
Siegel pointed to two brain aneurysms Biden suffered in 1988, as reported by Delaware Online, and claimed that Biden’s cognitive abilities and ‘decision-making’ could have been affected.
Then, he suggested that Biden may be on ‘speed’ or the ADHD drug Adderall.”
So, how did the Biden camp respond tot he President’s mandate for testing?
“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.”
So, what led to the calls from the President in the first place?
“‘Nobody thought that he was even going to win,’ Trump told Washington Examiner columnist Byron York during an interview in the Oval Office.
‘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.’
Trump said he just doesn’t understand the differing performances. ‘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.'”
Is it safe to say that the former Senator and Vice President has been uneven? Is he all over the place, or is he steady and collected?
Here are a few of the things he has said most recently.
“It’s estimated that 200 million people will have died, probably by the time I have finished this talk.”
“When I got to the Senate 180 years ago…”
It is also difficult to tell if he says “my ‘tenure’ as Vice President” or my ‘ten years.’
But, this is the same guy that has been stepping on his words for years.
“Chuck Graham, (Missouri) state senator is here. Stand up Chuck, let everyone see you. Oh, God love you. What am I talking about? I’ll tell you what, you’re making everybody else stand up though pal.”
For those of you who do not know who Chuck Graham is and why this was a bad thing.
He was a paraplegic. Sadly, the Senator passed away earlier this year at the age of 55.
But, Biden’s gaffes are off the table according to one person. She will not answer questions about them.
Why? Because, well…umm…Trump.
She was recently interviewed by CNN’s Jake Tapper.
“Your husband has been known to make the occasional gaffe…”
Dr. Biden would not allow Tapper to even finish the question.
“You can’t even go there. After Donald Trump, you cannot even say the word gaffe,” Biden said.
Tapper pushed a little further, but let her off the hook with, “I can’t even say the word gaffe?”
“Nope. Done. It’s gone,” she said, saying the issue is “Over. So over.”
Umm, Jake. Dr. Biden.
His gaffes are more than occasional, and in no way are they the fault of the President.
In another interview with Fox News’ Dana Perino, Mrs. Biden addressed the thought processes around his perceived cognitive decline.
“You know, Joe is anything but that characterization. You know, we’ve been campaigning; we’ve been listening to the experts, the scientists, and the doctors, and they have told us stay home and be safe, and I think Donald Trump is really about Joe’s age, right? I think there’s like two or three years difference.”
But Biden’s wife and campaign staff dismissing the legitimate concerns of people who watch him speak day after day does not make him healthy or fit.
And the media continues to ignore these verbal slips They always have and they will continue to remain silent. Don’t believe us? Keep reading.

UNITED ARAB EMIRATES – In the final year of the Obama administration, then Vice President Joe Biden and his wife Jill went on a trip to the Middle East.
While speaking in the United Arab Emirates to members of the United States Air Force’s 380th Air Expeditionary Wing, Biden told those in attendance that he had provided the appointment for 1LT Karen Johnson to the Air Force Academy.
The same man who cannot speak in complete, coherent sentences when he is reading typed statements from a teleprompter, had no problem uttering the following:
“Notwithstanding what you may hear about me, I have incredibly good judgment,” Biden said. “One, I married Jill and two, I appointed Johnson to the academy. I just want you to know that, so clap for that you stupid bastards. Man, you all are a dull bunch. It must be slow here, man.”
Look, I was a member of the US Military for 8 years, 2 months and 24 days. So, when he was talking to the men and women of the 380th AEW, he was talking to me.
But I am not offended. I am not taking to the streets, and I am not threatening harm to him or anyone else. I am not a leftist.
I do however find it ironic, that once again, the mainstream media is glossing over the fact that Biden has actually done the things he accuses President Trump of doing. And every time he does it, he gets caught on camera.
Remember that one time Democrats accused the President of withholding aid to Ukraine and asking for dome quid pro quo?
Do you also recall that the accusations were unfounded. Yet, here we have Biden admitting to withholding $1 billion in aid from the same country unless they fired the prosecutor that was investigating Hunter Biden.
He was protecting his son. The same son that may very well be investigated for a myriad of allegations, such as accepting $3.5 million from the wife of a former Moscow mayor.
That same guy that had zero experience in the energy industry, yet somehow made millions by being a board member of a Ukrainian energy sector company.
The same son that shacked up with his brother’s widow but broke up with her and got married to another woman a month later, had an affair and a child with a stripper, and refuses to pay child support.
The same son that was awarded a commission in the US Navy, only to lose it a month later after testing positive for cocaine.
It might be time to stop protecting your 50-year-old son and let him find his own way out of the endless cycle of legal issues and scandals he winds up in.
Although, being the saint you continue to make him out to be, it was probably all just a right-wing conspiracy.
But, enough about Hunter…let’s get back to the Vice President of the United States calling a group of Airmen “stupid bastards.”
Again, Biden is a man that is still trying to convince people that President Trump called those buried in a military cemetery “losers.” Never mind that these claims have been completely refuted by numerous people that were part of the conversation, some of whom are not Trump supporters.
His campaign confirmed that the video, which started recirculating this week, was authentic.
Andrew Bates, the campaign’s Director of Rapid Response told the Washington Examiner:
“Vice President Biden was jokingly encouraging the audience to clap for an airwoman on the stage, and a number of service members can be seen laughing and smiling at the comment.”
Oh, so because a “number” of them could be seen laughing and smiling, it makes it ok.
You know what Andrew, you almost sold me on your argument. I mean he was just joking, you stupid bastard. Just kidding. But it’s ok. Everyone in the room with me was laughing and smiling at the comment.
See what I did there?
The left once lost their minds when President Trump told NFL owners that they should “fire the son-of-a-bitch” referring to any players who knelt for the national anthem. People actually were saying that the President’s statement was a verbal assault player’s moms.
So, let me get this straight. The President calls unpatriotic millionaires “sons of bitches,” and it was a comment that was unbefitting the office?
Yet, the Vice President can call some of our nation’s finest “stupid bastards” and it is just a joke? No biggie. And no one questioned why he insulted their intelligence or what their fathers thought about them all being told they didn’t know their dads.
It’s fine. He was just kidding.
Or was he?
This isn’t the only example of Joe “Oh, you know, the thing” Biden going off script and saying what he was really thinking.
He called one man a “damn liar” and “fat”.
“Well I tell you what, if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t Black. Take a look at my record, man!”
Here are a few of the other “gaffes.”
“Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids.”
“I mean you’ve got the first sort of mainstream African American (Barack Obama), who is articulate and bright, and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that’s a storybook, man.”
But luckily, he is just joking.
“I’ve had a great relationship [with Indians]. In Delaware, the largest growth in population is Indian-Americans moving from India. You cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I’m not joking.”
Oh, I guess he isn’t joking.
Probably the truest thing he has ever said…
“I never had an interest in being a mayor ’cause that’s a real job. You have to produce. That’s why I was able to be a senator for 36 years.”
Look, I have lost family members to Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. So, I will not attack Joe Biden on the fact that he has recently been stumbling with words.
But I will tell you this, he is a puppet. People close to him know he is not well. And that is who I have a problem with. Jill Biden sits idly by watching her husband be propped up on stage and simply say what someone else types for him.
All that being said, joking or not, calling members of the military stupid bastards is not funny and it is never acceptable, especially from an elected official.
