Tonight kicks off the first of three debates scheduled between President Donald Trump and Democratic Party nominee Joe Biden.
In unsurprising news, the sh#t show is already underway.
Reporters have learned that the president’s campaign wants the Biden campaign to allow a third-party “inspector” search each debater for transmitters and electronic devices.
Kate Bedingfield, Biden’s deputy campaign manager, called the Trump campaign’s request “absurd” in a call with reporters. She also denied the claim that the campaign had asked for breaks.
“[Trump’s] staff seems concerned that he may not do well tonight and they’re already laying the groundwork for how they’re going to lie about why,” Bedingfield emphasized. “It is completely absurd. Of course, he’s not wearing an earpiece and we never asked for breaks.”
Bedingfield, speaking with reporters, added that “if we’re playing that game, the Trump team asked that Chris Wallace never mention the number of COVID deaths once during the debate. You can consider that confirmed from the Biden campaign. See how easy that was to try and throw out a distraction. It is pathetic. It’s weak. Once again the Trump campaign is lying. They’re going to process because they don’t want to debate Joe Biden on the substance. You go to process when you can’t go to substance.”
The Trump team fired back: “This is a lie and it never happened. This is the height of playing politics with a public health crisis. Biden is trying to distract from the facts that he won’t submit to an inspection for earpieces, won’t take a drug test, and needs multiple breaks during the 90-minute debate.”
Politics with a public health crisis? Who would rather talk about about an earpiece, as opposed to 200,000+ deaths?
The sh#t show is on tonight at 9PM EST and can be seen virtually everywhere.
