Matt Margolis at PJ Media, Biden Reportedly Refusing to Allow Search for Electronic Earpiece Before Debate
On Tuesday morning the Trump campaign requested a new rule for the first presidential debate: that a third party inspect both candidates for electronic devices or transmitters. President Trump had already consented to such an inspection, and the Biden campaign had reportedly agreed to this days ago, but, Ebony Bowden of the New York Post reported moments ago that they are now declining.
The Trump campaign has since confirmed this flip-flop.
Joe Biden’s handlers several days ago agreed to a pre-debate inspection for electronic earpieces but today abruptly reversed themselves & declined. Biden asked for multiple breaks during the debate, which President Trump doesn’t need, so we have rejected that request.— Tim Murtaugh - Download the Trump 2020 app today!

“Joe Biden’s handlers several days ago agreed to a pre-debate inspection for electronic earpieces but today abruptly reversed themselves and declined,” Tim Murtaugh, communications director for the Trump campaign, said in a statement. “Biden’s handlers have asked for multiple breaks during the debate, which President Trump doesn’t need, so we have rejected that request. On top of the refusal to take a drug test, it seems pretty obvious that the Biden team is looking for any safety net they can find in the hours leading up to the debate.”
If I were the Trump campaign, I would provide the President with a small radio jammer, designed to produce a sharp squeal in the ear of anyone with a radio frequency. He can use it while Biden is getting his questions from Chris Wallace and his answers from his handlers.
True story. A few weeks ago, our garage door openers suddenly stopped responding correctly to the battery powered "clickers" we carry in the cars. Sometimes they worked, but at a very short range, sometimes they didn't. Georgia did a search today, and one of the common reports was that using LED lights in the openers interferes in the radio frequencies the openers use to receive commands from the "clickers." She had, indeed, put LED lights into the openers around the same time. She changed out the LEDs for some old incandescents we were hoarding, and indeed, it fixed them.
