US election debates: Joe Biden humiliated after demanding breaks in debate | World | News

According to Fox News, the Democratic candidate’s campaign asked for breaks every 30 minutes to allow both parties to rest. The meeting, which is only scheduled to last 90 minutes, features no commercial breaks.

But President Trump’s campaign countered Mr Biden’s request.

Social media users reacted to Mr Biden’s request and took to Twitter to express their confusion.

One Twitter user wrote: “I must wonder…will the heads of other countries also allow Biden such courtesies?

“What if we become engaged in conflict that requires hours of being engaged?

“Is there anything Biden has shown lately that indicates he is up for such an important job as Leader of the Free World?”

Former New York Mayor, Rudy Giuliani wrote: “Biden is begging for long breaks during just a 90-minute debate!

“It’s either two 15 minute breaks or a half-hour break in the middle.

“So far the Election Commission has stood firm and said they are NOT going to change the practice of 90 minutes WITHOUT a break.”

In a separate tweet, she wrote: “#joeBiden Kick him in the n**s, if you can find them!”

Ms Midler and Mr Trump have recently seen themselves at the centre of several public spats in which they traded insults via Twitter.

Recently, the singer tweeted a fake quote about President Trump, which he countered by branding her a “washed up psycho.”

She also sparked backlash after tweeting that Mr Trump’s wife, Melania, “still can’t speak English” and calling her an “illegal alien”, in what was largely considered a xenophobic attack.

Ms Midler wrote: “#beBest is back! A UGE bore! She can speak several words in a few languages.

“Get that illegal alien off the stage!”

The actress later publicly apologised.

“Obviously something is going on with this man at this point,” Dr. Ronny Jackson said on Fox News’ “Hannity.” “I think it’s completely reasonable to ask if he’s being medicated because there have been a couple of times where he has come out and looked a little more energetic than he has in the last few months.”

Jackson, a Trump loyalist and candidate for a congressional race in Texas, said it is possible Biden is having “good days and bad days” as part of what he called the former vice president’s “cognitive decline.” 

“But I think it’s completely reasonable to ask if he’s taking medications to help him with his alertness and his memory,” Jackson said. 

 

 

Over the weekend, Trump tweeted he would demand Biden take a drug test before taking the debate stage this week in Cleveland. 

 

“I will be strongly demanding a Drug Test of Sleepy Joe Biden prior to, or after, the Debate on Tuesday night,” Trump said. “Naturally, I will agree to take one also. His Debate performances have been record setting UNEVEN, to put it mildly. Only drugs could have caused this discrepancy???”
