President Donald Trump’s campaign on Tuesday demanded that Democratic rival Joe Biden agree to undergo a thorough ear inspection ahead of the first 2020 presidential debate to ensure that he has not been equipped with any special communications devices.
The Biden campaign has predictably laughed off the Trump campaign’s demand — but that hasn’t stopped Trump campaign senior adviser Jason Miller from pressing the issue.
“What is Biden hiding?” Miller tweeted of the Democratic presidential nominee’s refusal to submit to an ear inspection.
Joe Lockhart, a former White House Press Secretary for President Bill Clinton, replied instantly to Miller to point out that he’s really not in position to demand transparency.
“You are the last person in the world who should be asking this question in public,” Lockhart wrote.

Certainly not his taxes

Trump refuses to let his taxes out. Refuses to give a DNA sample in a rape case. Hides the notes taken by a translator for his secret Putin meeting. What is Trump hiding?

I don't know Jason, is it a $130K porn star payoff that landed his attorney in prison? No, that doesn't sound like it's right (at least regarding Biden).

Well, it’s not child support payments

Not to change the subject, but how many abortions have you paid for today?

I can tell you what he's not hiding. 421 million – 1.1 billion in foreign loans that compromise him.

You want the debate to be about:
rather than the Trump tax returns and the 200K dead Americans
You don't need a hearing device to dig into Trump with those questions

Trump translation: "President Trump will be wearing an electronic hearing device this evening".

Well that’s the 750 dollar question, isn’t it?

Maybe Biden is hiding…
Why he was rushed to Walter Reed
Who he owes $421 million to
Who guaranteed that $421M debt
Notes showing what he said in those meetings with Putin
How the heck he could spend $70K on that hairdo.
Oh, wait. Those are all things @realDonaldTrump is hiding. https://t.co/CRFpOKTcA7

‘#PerdueIsChicken’: Internet mocks ‘coward’ GOP senator for canceling debate after Ossoff destroyed him in viral video
Democratic Senate hopeful Jon Ossoff destroyed his Republican incumbent opponent so thoroughly Wednesday evening that Georgia Senator David Perdue has just canceled the third and final debate.
“It’s not just that you’re a crook, Senator, it’s that you’re attacking the health of the people that you represent,” Ossoff told Perdue, who had little to say in response. The viral video had been watched 5 million times by Thursday morning. It's now been viewed 9.3 million times, nearly as many times as the number of people in the entire state of Georgia.
A fake ‘intelligence staffer’ crafted the groundwork for the Trump conspiracy theories about Hunter Biden
It's unclear why President Donald Trump and his allies have chosen to attack Vice President Joe Biden's last living son as a key tenant to the 2020 reelection instead of focusing on his opponent himself. But according to a well-researched NBC News report by Ben Collins and Brandy Zadrozny, the "documents," actually came from a fake person that never existed using a profile photo created by an artificial intelligence face generator.
Months ago, there was a fake "intelligence" document about Hunter Biden that popped up online along with tons of "files" from a supposed laptop. None of it was real and it has all been dismissed by Trump's own associates as fake. But now it's being revealed that the company behind the effort was a fake "intelligence firm" called Typhoon Investigations, researchers and public documents revealed.
Glenn Greenwald resigns from The Intercept over Biden article
Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald said Thursday he had resigned from The Intercept after the US investigative media outlet refused to publish his article critical of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.
Greenwald, one of the first journalists to report on the Edward Snowden documents on US mass surveillance, said he was leaving the website he started in 2014 with two other journalists.
"The final, precipitating cause is that The Intercept's editors, in violation of my contractual right of editorial freedom, censored an article I wrote this week, refusing to publish it unless I remove all sections critical of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden," Greenwald said in a blog post.
