President Donald Trump threw out a wild campaign attack line this week, accusing Democratic presidential pick Joe Biden of being on drugs. There is zero evidence for this claim; Trump is simply such a self-obsessed egomaniac that he behaves as if he can just say just about whatever he wants without even paying attention to if it has any relationship to reality. Trump doesn’t act alone — he made his latest suggestion that Biden was on drugs during an interview that was taped at the White House with Fox host Jeanine Pirro. She did not appear to offer any pushback against the president’s nonsense.
Trump commented to Pirro:
‘I think there’s probably, possibly drugs involved. That’s what I hear. I mean, there’s possibly drugs. I don’t know how you can go from being so bad that you can’t even get out a sentence — I mean you saw some of those debates, with the large number of people on the stage. He was — I mean, I used to say how is it possible that he can even go forward.’
Again — there is no evidence for these claims. None of what Trump is saying is true. He is a pathological narcissist who has problems with reality: that’s all. Check out his comments below:

Apparently, the delusional idea that Biden might be on drugs is shared among members of the Trump family. During a recent appearance on the far-right talk show The Rubin Report, Donald Trump Jr. made the exact same baseless suggestion. After spouting off the total lie that Biden waited awhile to even condemn rioting, Trump Jr. said the following:
‘Is he just hiding because he’s that incompetent, or is he incapable of coming out of the basement? I mean they’ll question Trump’s health at every turn, but… [Biden’s] not a healthy guy… You think this guy’s going to be there at 3 o’clock in the morning when something really goes down… Will he be with it? Are they giving him something so he can appear even a little bit lucid or coherent?’
All of that is nonsense. Check out Trump Jr.’s erratic comments below — they’re chock full of nonsensical lies:

Donald Trump himself — not Joe Biden — is the one who has suffered documented mishaps like seemingly struggling to walk down a ramp. He’s also the one who took a surprise trip to Walter Reed Medical Center last year, among other issues.
