Biden Rejects Trump Challenge That He Submit To A Drug Test

The Biden campaign has rejected a request by President Trump that the former vice president submit to a drug test before Tuesday's big debate.
Trump has repeatedly pointed out that lunchbucket Joe's debate performances are such a stark contrast to his normal bumbling behavior are a sign that he is receiving a major pharmaceutical boost for the nationally televised events.
It's hard to argue against such a suggestion if one has been a careful observer of the debates that the rapidly declining Biden has participated in - especially the one with Bernie Sanders.
In a Sunday tweet, Trump threw down the gauntlet.
Per the POTUS:
"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???"
During a rally in Florida last week, Trump jabbed Biden by joking:
"They'll give him a big shot of something and he'll go out there. He'll have a lot of energy. He will have energy. He'll be like Superman for about 15 minutes."
The POTUS also told another crowd that:
“You never know. They give him a big fat shot in the ass and he comes out, and for two hours he’s better than ever before.”
On Monday, Biden called yete another LID and hid in his basement while his campaign slammed Trump for suggesting that the candidate was on performance-enhancing drugs.
Ahead of the first presidential debate, on Tuesday, Donald Trump was focused on another "d word" — claiming a drug test was needed for both candidates — to which Joe Biden's campaign offered a withering response.
In a statement on Sunday, the Biden campaign questioned whether Trump's "best case is made in urine" and said the president "pissed away" the ability to save the lives of those who died as a result of the novel coronavirus pandemic.
“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.”
Trump has for weeks suggested that Biden is on performance-enhancing drugs, even making the accusation at a recent White House press conference.
The president has long criticized Biden as inept and "sleepy," though Trump has faced scrutiny as well — defending how he drank a glass of water and walked down a ramp, for example.
President Trump wasted no time in responding to Team Biden's refusal to allow good old Joe to pee in a cup.
"Joe Biden just announced that he will not agree to a Drug Test. Gee, I wonder why?"
Look for Biden to show up for the debate tonight like he was shot out of a cannon and with expectations so low, he will be declared the winner within minutes of his first response by the media.
