DEBATES/JOE BIDEN: [Reporter: “Do you — you’ve said this numerous times, but do you really believe that Joe Biden will be on any type of performance-enhancing drug ahead of the debates? Or are you just joking?”]

“No, I’m not joking. I mean, I’m willing to take a drug test. I think he should too, because he’s had a very uneven — I watched him with some of the — when he was with — you know, debating Pocahontas and Harris, who treated him so badly. But I watched him, and he was out of it. Right?

And then, I watched him against Bernie Sanders, and he was okay. I mean, he wasn’t great, but he wasn’t terrible. He was okay. A far cry from the way he — you know what I’m saying. I mean, if you look at some of those debates, I said, ‘There’s no way he can continue. He can’t continue.’

Then, all of the sudden, he debated Crazy Bernie Sanders. And you know what? The truth is he was — he was okay. And I said, ‘How did he go from there, with those horrible performances, to where he was okay?’ And I always joke, but, you know, it is true: He was no Winston Churchill in debating, but he was fine.

And people say he was on performance-enhancing drugs. A lot of people have said that. A lot of people have written that.”

[Reporter: “Who has said that aside from you, sir?”]

“So — so, take a look at it. Take a look. Why don’t you just check it? You can check out the Internet. You’ll see. Plenty of people say it.

And whether he is or not, it doesn’t matter, but I would love to take a test and he can take a test, too.”
