In preparation for tonight’s first big presidential debate, President Trump has requested a third party inspector to check each candidate for electronic in-ear devices or transmitters.
Given the fact that when Biden is on his own he seems to be totally incoherent and reports that have surfaced about his using teleprompters during almost all of his speaking engagements, including for question and answer sessions, this seems like a reasonable request.
Clearly, Trump wants to ensure that Biden isn’t being fed what to say so that he looks good and fit for duty when the opposite could be true.

Over the last several weeks, the former vice president’s campaign has also requested two breaks — one every 30 minutes — to break up the 90-minute commercial-free program. But that request has been denied by their Trump counterparts, Fox News is told.
A Trump campaign source told Fox News that “our guy doesn’t need breaks. He gives 90-minute speeches all the time.”
And the source says that the negotiations are still on-going for Tuesday’s night’s debate — as well as the remaining two showdowns between Biden and Trump.
This debate — which is the first of three between the two candidates — starts at 9 p.m. ET Tuesday evening. The event is being hosted by Case Western Reserve University and the Cleveland Clinic.
Folks, this is shaping up to be the first big must-see-TV of the year, and that’s not just thanks to the coronavirus ruining the shooting schedule of all our favorite television shows.
Biden has made himself appear weak, frail, and mentally incompetent all year long. Now he will be put in a situation where he has to think on his feet. This debate, if done right and fairly, will reveal much about his mental condition and could end up swaying poll numbers in a big way.
