WHAT’S ON JOE BIDEN’S WRIST?
It is true grainy screenshots showed an object partly obscured by Biden’s sleeve cuff during the debate.
As for what’s it is, the answer just so happened to be widely covered prior to the debate. In November 2017, Biden appearedon Megyn Kelly’s talk show and discussed the object he wears on his wrist at all times:
Just before and after the two-minute mark in a video of Biden on Kelly’s show, he discusses the rosary on his wrist. During that portion of his appearance, the camera zooms in on Biden’s rosary — which on the same wrist and is the same reddish-brown color as the object briefly spotted during the break:
In candid images where Biden is wearing a short sleeve shirt, Beau Biden’s rosary is typically visible on his wrist:
Myriad social media posts claimed the reddish-brown object on Joe Biden’s wrist during the his September 29 2020 presidential debate with Donald Trump was “a wire.” However, Biden’s habit of wearing son Beau Biden’s rosary at all times on his wrist is well-documented both in news articles and in images and video. Further, wireless technology is so common in 2020 as to be ubiquitous, making the need for “a wire” completely obsolete; we consider the “IV” claim to be so ridiculous (as there are many far less obvious places to hide an IV than out in plain view on one’s wrist during a debate on a stage from behind a podium) as to not even be worth fact-checking. We rate these entirely specious claims as Not True…
- President Donald Trump has told allies he plans to run in the 2024 US presidential election, according to a Reuters report citing an unnamed source.
- The defeated president on Wednesday endorsed Ronna McDaniel to stay on as Republican National Committee chair in what observers say is another sign he plans to run again.
- The president’s former acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney last week said Trump would “absolutely” run again in 2024.
- “I would absolutely expect the president to stay involved in politics and would absolutely put him on a shortlist of people who are likely to run in 2024. He doesn’t like losing,” Mulvaney told a think tank.
- President Donald Trump has told allies he plans to run for president in 2024, according to a report, and could announce his candidacy by the end of next month.Trump is continuing to publicly refuse to accept defeat in last week’s election, and his team has filed several lawsuits in key states that helped President-elect Joe Biden secure his victory.Trump, however, has told allies he plans to run in the next US presidential election and could announce his intention this year, Reuters reported, citing an unnamed source.Last week, the Trump ally Mick Mulvaney, his former acting chief of staff, said the president would “absolutely” run again in 2024.
- He told the Institute for International and European Affairs think tank, “Now, I think folks are starting to realize that if Donald Trump loses, he might be the guy” to run in 2024, and “I’m telling you absolutely.””I would absolutely expect the president to stay involved in politics and would absolutely put him on a shortlist of people who are likely to run in 2024,” he added. “He doesn’t like losing.”He said Trump was “high-energy” and might run in 2028, at which point he’d be 82.”Don’t lose sight of the fact that he will technically be younger than Joe Biden is now, four years from now. Stories about his energy level, the fact he doesn’t sleep, and his vivaciousness are true,” said Mulvaney, who serves as the US envoy to Northern Ireland….
“That’s not the stuff of spin. He’s a very high-energy 74-year-old, and I absolutely expect him to be further engaged in 2024 or 2028 if he were to lose this next election … There’s actually a nonzero chance that Donald Trump runs again in 2028 and Joe Biden does not.”
