The first presidential debate between President Donald J. Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden will take place tonight at 9 pm. ET at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, OH.
Joe Biden’s wife Jill has been campaigning for her husband, the frequently confused and seemingly disoriented former Vice President while Joe rests in his basement and his campaign scrambles to find ways to make him relevant while keeping him out of the public eye.
Yesterday, President Trump tweeted Joe Biden’s refusal to take a drug test before the debates to prove he doesn’t need performance enhancement drugs to pull off a coherent debate.
He also tweeted a video of Sean Hannity who called out Biden for hiding in his basement to prepare for the debate, accusing him of needed intense training by his campaign because of his frail mental state.
Voters are concerned that Chris Wallace, the Trump-hating Fox News host, will not be fair in his treatment of Joe Biden, treating him with kid gloves, while attacking President Trump.
In 2016, then-candidate Trump used the debates with Hillary Clinton to his advantage, calling out Hillary himself when the hosts refused to address the tough issues that might harm her chances of winning. It’s likely that Trump will do the same with Joe Biden tonight.
Will the Fox News debate host, Chris Wallace, ask the 78-year-old Joe Biden about his poor health history? Will Chris Wallace ask Biden about his irregular heartbeat or the two brain aneurysms he suffered when he was a Delaware Senator?
Washington Examiner – In December 2019, it was revealed by Joe Biden’s personal physician that is currently being treated for A-fib or an irregular heartbeat, and that he has high cholesterol. Biden’s doctor said he “remains completely asymptomatic” and has never required treatment for the disorder since being diagnosed in 2003.
The doctor for Joe Biden released a report detailing the health of the former vice president, concluding that although he is currently being treated for four different ailments, he is “fit to successfully execute the duties of the Presidency.”
“Vice President Biden is a healthy, vigorous, 77-year-old male, who is fit to successfully execute the duties of the Presidency, to include those as Chief Executive, Head of State, and Commander in Chief,” O’Connor wrote.
For his heart condition and high cholesterol, Biden is prescribed two separate medications. He also takes two over-the-counter drugs for his acid reflux and allergies, with the latter resulting in “several sinus and nasal passage surgeries.” His doctor, Kevin O’Connor, said the acid reflux results in Biden “having to clear his throat more often.”
The Tuesday report by O’Connor, a professor at George Washington University, is the first glimpse into Biden’s health since 2008 when he was chosen by Barack Obama to be his vice president. O’Connor has been Biden’s physician since 2009 when the two served in the White House.
Will Wallace ask him about the statement made by former President Barack Obama’s physician about Joe Biden’s poor health?
“He’s not a healthy guy,” Dr. David Scheiner, who was Obama’s personal physician for 22 years before he became president, concluded after reading the records. “He’s not in bad shape for his age, but I wouldn’t say he’s in outstanding health. Could I guarantee he won’t have issues for the next four years? He has a lot of issues that are just sort of sitting there.”
A three-page letter from Biden’s physician concluded the former vice president is a “healthy, vigorous, 77-year-old” that is fit to be president. But the letter also revealed Biden receives treatment for an irregular heartbeat and high cholesterol and that he deals with acid reflux and seasonal allergies. It noted his already known history of aneurysms and that he took blood thinners.
The details from the letter made Scheiner, 81, concerned about Biden’s potential for strokes, and he said he would want to see results from an MRI or CT scan. Because Biden also used to have sleep apnea before getting surgery on his sinus and nasal passages, Scheiner said he would also like to review the results of a sleep study.
The report doesn’t mention an MRI despite the fact that Biden had two brain aneurysms in 1988, the first of which almost killed him. Earlier this year, the Washington Examiner interviewed Biden’s former surgeon, who vouched the 2020 front-runner was in the clear.
What about Joe Biden’s eye filling up with blood during the Democratic primary debate on live tv?
Washington Examiner – After days of speculation about his health prompted by his eye filling with blood on live television, Joe Biden, 76, brought up one of the most traumatic health experiences he has endured: a brain aneurysm.
“I ended up with what they call a cranial aneurysm,” Biden said at a campaign event on Friday. “I had to be rushed to a hospital in the middle of a snowstorm, and the fact is, the president was nice enough to offer a helicopter to get me there. I couldn’t go up because of the altitude. My fire company got me down in time for [a] 13-hour operation and saved my life.”
Biden suffered the burst aneurysm in 1988, when he was a Delaware senator. Believing that he was close to death, a Catholic priest was preparing to administer Biden’s last rites. Surgeons clipped a second aneurysm before it bust a few months later.
So, in addition to the widely held belief that Joe Biden is suffering from dementia, are all of Biden’s serious health concerns off the table until after the election?
Should the media be held responsible for hiding Joe Biden’s poor health while pushing bogus, media-manufactured bombshells about President Trump that disappear the following day?
