Biden Makes False Claim About Trump To Explain His Disastrous Debate Performance

 President Joe Biden, facing a make or break moment, partially blamed his disastrous debate performance last week on former President Donald Trump by falsely claiming that Trump repeatedly interrupted him during the debate.

Biden made the remarks during an ABC News interview on Friday afternoon with host George Stephanopoulos as he seeks to stop Democrats from forcing him to quit his presidential run and allow someone else to be the nominee.

Biden claimed that his performance was just a “bad episode” and that there was “no indication of any serious condition,” adding that he was “exhausted” during the debate.

The 81-year-old said that he was exhausted despite having several days to rest because he was “sick” and claimed that doctors told him that he had a “really bad cold.”

He said that he took full responsibility for his debate preparation and that no one else was to blame and that he had a “bad night.”

Biden then falsely claimed that Trump was trying to interrupt him during the debate, which is not remotely accurate as a simple review of the debate footage shows Trump standing silently as Biden fumbled over his words.

“Even when I was answering a question, even though they turned his mic off, he was still shouting,” Biden claimed. “And I let it distract me.”
