In the irony of all ironies, the man who sniffles his way through every debate performance said on Wednesday that his political rival, Joe Biden, should submit to a drug test prior to their first debate. There is no word from his staff on whether he was serious or just projecting.

Apparently, Trump thinks that Biden did a little too well in his convention speech. He believes there must be some kind of performance-enhancing drug that allows people to unfairly give superior speeches.
‘Nobody thought that he was even going to win. Because his debate performances were so bad. Frankly, his best performance was against Bernie. We’re going to call for a drug test, by the way, because his best performance was against Bernie. It wasn’t that he was Winston Churchill, because he wasn’t, but it was a normal, boring debate. You know, nothing amazing happened. And we are going to call for a drug test, because there’s no way — you can’t do that.’
The potential for projection comes from longtime suspicions over Trump’s endless sniffing and a convention speech by his eldest son, Donald Trump, Jr., that left viewers wondering if he was somehow impaired.
For the record, Joe Biden served for more than 40 years in the U.S. Senate and for eight years as Vice President and no one has ever accused him of being on drugs. Of course, Donald Trump is happy to be the first to do so.
Twitter called Trump out on his nonsense attacks. Read some of their comments below:
