Trump earlier in the day said Biden is 'shot'

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on Tuesday called President Trump "foolish" for his comments on the candidate's mental acuity and unfounded claims suggesting that Biden is taking performance-enhancing drugs, as some pundits are warning that Trump might be lowering expectations for his opponent in the first debate happening later this month.

"I'm looking forward to the debate and he's a fool," Biden said in an interview with WFLA 8. "The comments are just foolish. Get ready, Mr. President, here I come."

Biden laughed when the WFLA 8 reporter first started asking the question, referencing allegations Trump has made that Biden is "mentally shot" which he re-upped in an interview with "Fox & Friends" earlier on Tuesday.

In the conversation with "Fox & Friends," Trump was asked what challenges he believes a debate with the political veteran Biden might present, and Trump said he noticed an improvement by Biden between earlier debates in the Democratic presidential primary and the later debates between just he and Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.

Trump then said "something was strange, in my opinion," and added, "you can't do that kind of stuff."

After brief pushback from the show's hosts, Trump said he believed Biden is taking something to give him "mental clarity" then said, "I think he should take a drug test." Host Brian Kilmeade later said he did not believe Biden was taking any performance-enhancing drugs.

Some have warned that Trump's consistent messaging that Biden is "shot" could be lowering expectations for Biden's debate performances, meaning that if Biden simply puts together a serviceable showing it could largely be seen as a win for the former vice president.

But the Trump campaign appears to have made at least some effort to raise expectations for Biden as the first debate, slated for Sept. 29, approaches.

"Joe Biden is actually a very good debater. He doesn’t have as many gaffes as he does in his everyday interviews," Trump campaign senior adviser Jason Miller told The Washington Post earlier this month. "I would make the argument that Joe Biden would even be the favorite in the debates since he’s been doing them for 47 years."

The debates could take on outsized importance in the age of the coronavirus as candidates mostly are precluded from holding large, in-person rallies — though Trump held an indoor rally in Nevada over the weekend.

The Commission on Presidential Debates also has a vice-presidential forum scheduled for Oct. 7 and two other presidential debates scheduled for Oct. 15 and Oct. 22. Election Day is Nov. 3.

If Biden has nothing to hide then he should take a test as well as Trump. Why not? They’ve dragged Trumps tax release demands in the courts for four years.

Trump and the pundits as well were seeing Biden go from incoherent for awhile and then suddenly Biden is normal. That's why performance enhancing drugs were suspected. It does make you wonder. Well see wht happens. I just hope Trump doesn't take anything for granted.

Honestly, I don't see where Creepy Crazy Joe is all that "normal" even if he's taking drugs. He's been outed about his using a teleprompter to answer supposedly "spontaneous" questions, and he still is unable to get through more than a few minutes of speaking until he goes off into one of his "Look, man" incoherent tangents. I don't see, drugs or not, how he's going to get through one presidential debate for more than about 7 minutes before he goes off the deep end. There's no way the Communist Democrat party can allow him to do more than one debate, if that. Trump is right, Biden's mental acuity is shot.

Of course they need to prop up Biden in order to debate Trump, so they'll pump him up with drugs. But, maybe Satan will possess Biden so he won't have any need for drugs. Sorry, I keep referencing the dream I had where Biden's empty shell gets filled with the unholy spirit.

Creepy Crazy Biden is the foremost authority on making "foolish" comments since he makes them every time he opens his mouth and speaks. :heh
