In the weeks leading up to and even hours before the debate, the Trump and Biden campaigns have been arguing over different last-minute requests brought up by each party. These requests include drug tests before and after the debate, forbidden questions, and more. This was all revealed in a statement from the Trump Campaign’s Communication Director Tim Murtaugh on Twitter:
Joe Biden’s handlers several days ago agreed to a pre-debate inspection for electronic earpieces but today abruptly reversed themselves & declined…
Biden asked for multiple breaks during the debate, which President Trump doesn’t need, so we have rejected that request…

Here is an image of the statement in its entirety:
In addition to these requests, we know that Fox News’ Chris Wallace will be hosting the debate tonight. Due to Wallace’s anti-Trump stance, there have been rumors about a possible forbidden questions list being sent to Wallace from the Biden campaign. If there is such a list, questions about Biden’s “gaffes” on national television will certainly be forbidden, as Dr. Biden chastised Jake Tapper for asking about her husband’s past slip-ups in an interview this past Sunday, as previously reported by 100%FedUp.
Jill Biden, the wife of Presidential Candidate Joe Biden, commented on her husband’s mental state saying that he’s “strong and resilient and that it’s clear as night and day” in an interview with CNN news host Jake Tapper earlier today. Tapper then attempts to address Biden’s recent gaffes to which Dr. Biden interrupts him:
You can’t even go there!
You cannot even say the word gaffe!
As if nothing happened, Tapper changes the subject and asks Dr. Biden’s opinions on Trump’s recent remarks about the election in November.
This isn’t the first time we have seen Joe Biden been criticized by his own party, as previously reported by 100%FedUp.
It’s interesting that the media and the Democrats are just now bringing out Joe Biden’s past dealings with race. Where were they in 2008 and the eight years of Obama’s presidency? This is nothing new, but now the media isn’t giving him a pass since the powers on the left realize he’s not the candidate. It doesn’t help that Biden keeps making self-inflicted mistakes and big gaffes.
Biden had a dreadful debate performance and then came out the next day to try and recover. He made the remarks at Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow Push headquarters. Biden immediately began pandering to the crowd mentioning race and the perceived injustices of being black in 2019. Biden made several cringe-worthy remarks, but one stood out to Cory Booker:
Joe Biden had this to say about “that kid wearing a hoodie”…
“We’ve got to recognize that kid wearing a hoodie may very well be the next poet laureate and not a gangbanger.”
Cory Booker tweeted out to admonish Biden:
“This isn’t about a hoodie. It’s about a culture that sees a problem with a kid wearing a hoodie in the first place. Our nominee needs to have the language to talk about race in a far more constructive way.”

Funny how you didn’t hear any of the negatives about Biden when he was running with Obama. Biden has a huge record of saying racially insensitive things even about Obama.
And then I said, “Not a gangbanger.”
