The first presidential debate between President Donald Trump and Democratic candidate Joe Biden is slated to take place on September 29 in just two weeks. Because of this, Trump is preparing in advance of this important event – by accusing Biden of having used drugs.
If you thought Trump had a reasonable basis for his speculation, then unfortunately I have to disappoint you, but that is bad for you too if you assume that he has a reasonable basis for everything. To speak to Washington ExaminerTrump said he thought Biden might do drugs because he was in a “normal boring debate” against Bernie Sanders in which “nothing amazing happened”.
“Trump believes anyone who demonstrates basic competency must cheat,” Colbert said before switching to imitating Trump. “‘Well, did you see Biden run up that ramp without stumbling once? He has to’ ride. Plus he drank his water with just one hand. It’s like they ground Lance Armstrong and down his throat sprayed. ‘”
Trump also likened the debate to a “price war” or a gladiatorial fight, which admittedly is a comical image.
“You are not a gladiator,” Colbert said bluntly. “They fought lions. They brag about identifying you on a piece of paper.”
