Pre-debate controversy: Both candidates initially agreed to be inspected for audio devices in their ears. Now, Biden has reneged.
I don’t see how this is smart politics. By now refusing a reasonable and agreed upon request, it makes Biden look like he has something to hide.
it may be just to throw off Trump...no biggie.
Trump and his group are so skilled at planting seeds that they can they spew about later that it's really hard to know what's true.
This from the NY Post:
"In a statement on Tuesday afternoon, Trump 2020 communication’s director Tim Murtaugh claimed Biden’s camp agreed to a pre-debate inspection several days ago but “abruptly reversed themselves and declined” just hours before the match-up.
The story, first reported by Fox News, also revealed that Biden’s team requested two breaks during the 90-minute debate, or every 30 minutes.
This request was shot down by Trump’s campaign.
But Biden deputy campaign manager Kate Bedingfield vehemently denied the “pathetic” charges that their candidate would have an ear piece feeding him responses, calling it a “distraction” from Trump 2020.
They also denied they had requested breaks."
Well - do you believe Trump's communications director or Biden's campaign manager? Is there a neutral reliable source for this (I couldn't find one, but maybe so).
I have to say that I am nervous about tonight as I am for a Celtics Game 7.
