LOTS of wrangling over tonight’s big presidential debate!
This in addition to the performance-enhancing drug test he wanted Joe to take (that Joe declined).
Biden’s team then requested that the debate commission divide the event into 30-minute segments with breaks, instead of the 90 uninterrupted minutes which it will be.
‘Biden’s handlers have asked for multiple breaks during the debate, which President Trump doesn’t need, so we have rejected that request,’ the Trump campaign said, echoing Fox’s reporting.
So no breaks will happen during the 90-minute debate. (I wonder if the 70+ year old men will wear a catheter?)
On a call with reporters today, Biden’s Deputy Campaign Manager and Communications Director Kate Bedingfield said, ‘Of course he’s not wearing an earpiece and we never asked for a break.’
‘If we’re playing that game, then you know, the Trmp team asked Chris Wallace not to mention the number of deaths from COVID once during the debate,’ Bedingfield continued. ‘You can consider that confirmed from the Biden campaign.’
‘See how easy that was to try to throw up a distraction?’ she added.
The fireworks begin a 6PM.
The Biden campaign pushed back on this saying he won't be wearing an earpiece and they never asked for breaks.— Daniel Strauss (@DanielStrauss4) September 29, 2020
