    My above post was just for laughs.

    I think it’s pointless to demand a drug test. Just do the debate and... C3872A21-E545-48C0-9F2D-695AF3454CA4.gif

    Um what? I can demand you post a picture of you wearing a leotard. (Please don’t) ;) It means nothing. But it plants a seed in peoples minds. If you want people to remember. You bring up subject (ideally a few times in low stress setting). Then you hammer it home when there is stress, finally you remind folks of it later. It’s locked in the brain as fact.
    While I disagree with how Trump is doing this. Personally I would have commented “I hope they don’t up his drugs just to get thru the debate. I would think that could harm him...”. Type comments. BUT Trump often is far ahead. I prefer the gentler method normally. Then in debate when Joe falters. “Do you need to get a booster? Have your Dr. give you a shot? We could break for 3 commercials...”

    How does he look like a fool for demanding what he has no authority IMO to demand? IMO demand was the wrong term. IF he wanted a drug test done. He should have suggested it, offered to take one, asked Biden to also submit to test. When Biden group refuses. Bring it up in debate. Biden would agree. Then have to “change his mind” after handlers assist his thinking.
    I do wish Trump was a nicer guy. But he’s doing the job much better then I ever thought he could. HUGE improvement over Hillary, Obama, Biden, Bush, Clinton, Bush..

    Strategically, I believe this allows President Trump, at every rally afterward, to say, "Joe Biden refused to be tested for drugs. I was ready and willing to be tested. You know ol' Sleepy Joe is hiding something. Why refuse a simple test? Because the only way Sleepy Joe can get through ninety minutes on his feet, and put two sentences together, is to be juiced."

    A demand s just what it sounds like A DEMAND. It isn't a suggestion. It is plain English.

    When Biden tells him to stick his demand up his ass, Trump will look like a fool. That won't matter to his hard core base but it very well could swing people on the fence to that senile Democrat.

    If you watched Biden's CNN townhall you'd notice a completely different Biden. He still slipped here and there, but was sharper than he had been anytime before that. They are pumping him up with something.

    DJT is just getting the message out there.
    He knows Joe is on meds.

    btw, I won't be surprised if Joe does ok in the debates. Probably will get the questions ahead of time, and I'm sure the moderators will help him out all they can. And if not the media will simply ignore his slips and concentrate on proving DJT's statements are full of lies.
