Speaker Johnson No Assertions of Joe Biden Using Cocaine in Debate Foreseen, Why See Here

Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) stated on Tuesday that, despite what President Trump and his allies have been saying, nobody anticipates that President Biden will be “on cocaine” during the debate later this week.

Johnson spoke with CNN’s Kaitlan Collins on Trump’s recent remarks at a rally, in which he made reference to the bag of cocaine discovered at the White House the previous year and told his fans that Biden would be “gonna be so pumped up.”

Johnson was questioned by Collins on the former president’s charge.

Johnson stated in the interview, which Mediaite emphasized, “Look, there’s a lot of things that are said in jest.” Nobody anticipates Joe Biden to be high on cocaine, of course.

Several Republicans have expressed concern about Biden’s age and mental capacity, particularly in light of a special counsel report released earlier this year that characterized the incumbent as an “elderly man with a poor memory.” The fact that people are doubting Johnson’s capacity to govern, he continued, “makes sense.”

The Republican from Louisiana stated that Biden is more likely to be taking “energy drinks or something” for the debate because of the 81-year-old president’s high energy and unruly temperament.

Biden’s vehement State of the Union speech in March was mentioned by the Speaker. Biden was so animated on stage that Trump, conservative politicians, and journalists speculated he had taken performance-enhancing drugs prior to the address.

Johnson said he believed the public would anticipate Biden to address Congress earlier this year in a similar manner when he takes the debate platform.

“Can he stand side by side with President Trump for ninety minutes on that platform, considering that he attends rallies and speaks for two hours straight without notes?” he questioned. “Well, that should be fascinating to watch.”

Following up on his Monday announcement that he would also take a drug test, the former president has persisted in urging Biden to do so in advance of the debate. Trump’s allegations that the president would take medicines to improve his performance are unsupported by any verifiable information.

On Thursday at 9 p.m. EDT on CNN, the first presidential debate will take place. Jake Tapper and Dana Bash will serve as moderators.

Before their first meeting since the disastrous 2020 primary debate, Biden and Trump have been preparing for it. A set of rules, which includes mic muting, has been agreed upon by them.
