Biden Playfully Dismisses Performance-Enhancing Drug Claims Ahead of CNN Debate with Trump in Atlanta

President Joe Biden recently brushed off accusations of using performance-enhancing substances ahead of his CNN debate with former President Donald Trump.

In a lighthearted social media post, Biden joked about feeling energized, holding a specially labeled can of water.

The campaign even offered these cans as souvenirs on their website for a small donation.

Donald Trump and his supporters, including Ronny Jackson, raised concerns about Biden potentially using drugs during debates.

Biden’s camp swiftly dismissed these claims as baseless, citing similar accusations made against Hillary Clinton in 2016 and Biden himself in 2020.

Despite speculation, experts like Brett O’Donnell, a seasoned debate coach, debunked the idea of miracle drugs transforming debate performances.

O’Donnell mentioned candidates sometimes using vitamin B-12 injections or bee pollen for energy, but emphasized that these have limited effects.

Expert Opinions on Stimulants

Discussions also turned to stimulants like Adderall and testosterone, with contrasting views from medical professionals.

Dr. Carole Lieberman cautioned against the risks of pharmaceutical stimulants for individuals like Biden, highlighting potential health hazards under pressure.

Alternative Approaches to Preparation

Dr. Elizabeth Landsverk stressed the importance of adequate rest and physical activity over stimulants, particularly for older candidates like Biden and Trump.

She recommended a good night’s sleep and light exercise as safer and more effective ways to prepare for debates.

In conclusion, while allegations and speculations swirl, experts agree that natural preparation methods like sleep and exercise remain the healthiest choices for anyone gearing up for a public debate.
