Trump jokes about Biden’s expected debate performance: ‘He’s going to be so jacked up for those’

Former President Donald Trump jokingly predicted Friday that President Joe Biden will be “jacked up” on drugs for their upcoming presidential debates.

“He’s going to be so jacked up for those, you watch,” he said during a fundraising dinner in Minnesota, later adding that he would “demand a drug test” for the president, according to Fox News.

The remarks came a day after Rep. Greg Murphy, a Republican, speculated that Biden took advantage of some form of “help” prior to his unusually lively State of the Union address.

“I was in the State of the Union address and Joe Biden must have been jacked up on something that day,” he told Fox News host Maria Bartiromo. “I absolutely believe that from a medical viewpoint and actually have a little bit of good knowledge that happened.”

“He can’t stand, and he can’t stand under the lights for that long, and I don’t think he can keep a concept in his brain that long,” Murphy added.

Trump also previously speculated about the SOTU address during an appearance last month on conservative radio show host Hugh Hewitt’s program.

“I think what happened is, you know, that white stuff that they happened to find, which happened to be cocaine in the White House, I don’t know, I think something’s going on there,” Trump said on the show.

“I watched his State of the Union, and he was all jacked up at the beginning. By the end, he was fading fast. There’s something going on there. I want to debate. And I think debates, with him, at least, should be drug tested. I want a drug test,” he added.

This prompted Hewitt to ask him whether he was suggesting President Biden had used cocaine prior to his SOTU address.

“I don’t know what he’s using, but … he was higher than a kite,” the former president replied. “And by the way, it was the worst, it was the worst address I’ve ever seen, the State of the Nation. I’ll tell you, State of the Union, that’s not State of the Union, because he doesn’t represent us properly. That, I can tell you.”

“But he’s obviously, he’s being helped some way, because most of the time, he looks like he’s falling asleep. And all of a sudden, he walked up there and did a poor job. But he was all jacked up,” he added.

Biden’s campaign didn’t respond well to Trump’s speculation.

Biden campaign spokesman Ammar Moussa called the remarks “a bizarre outburst” in a statement to Forbes and urged voters to be “more concerned with Trump’s promise to deport millions of people and rip children away from their families and his deranged obsession to lie about losing the last election and undermine our democracy.”

The former president’s campaign is “spiraling because their candidate’s toxic agenda continues to be a loser with voters,” Moussa added.

Dovetailing back to Trump’s fundraiser remarks Friday, the former president also slammed the current president for habitually making up false stories about his past.

“He’s so full of sh-t,” Trump correctly noted.

He also predicted that he’ll win Minnesota this time around despite his previous losses.

“Trump lost Minnesota by just 1½ points in his 2016 presidential election victory over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton,” Fox News notes. “Four years ago, he lost the state to President Biden by more than seven points in his unsuccessful re-election campaign.”

Here’s the thing: Even Politico, a left-wing outlet, has admitted that “Trump’s Minnesota dream might not be fantasy.”

“Trump is running ahead of Biden in swing state general election polls, and if Trump can replicate his 2016 performance, when he lost the state by fewer than 45,000 votes, he could at least put a scare into Democrats,” Politico reported Friday.

Also, earlier this month senior Trump advisers reportedly presented new polling data demonstrating that both Minnesota and Virginia could be on the map.

“During the presentation, campaign advisers Chris LaCivita, Susie Wiles and pollster Tony Fabrizio flashed numbers on screen from another Trump pollster, John McLaughlin, showing President Joe Biden and Trump tied at 40 percent in Minnesota, and Biden up 3 percentage points in Virginia,” according to Politico.

“Without independent Robert F. Kennedy Jr. as an option, Trump was up 5 points in Minnesota and Biden up 1 point in Virginia, the advisers told donors.”
