Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

The conspiracy theory, which was pushed in a text message sent by the Trump campaign after it went viral on Facebook and YouTube, claimed that Biden had declined to "undergo inspection for electronic ear pieces before debate."

The earpiece conspiracy theory is an example of what disinformation experts call "trading up the chain," in which the sheer virality of a meme or a conspiracy theory forces mainstream outlets to cover it, giving it a patina of credibility it otherwise would not have.

"Will you shut up man?" was definitely fed to Biden via an earpiece.

Probably telepathically tuned to the thoughts of everyone who has ever had to listen to a stream of Trump's verbal diarrhea.

Didn't Trump want an electronics inspection right before the debate?

That's all it takes to justify some his nutjob's paranoia.

Presumably the electronics were developed in the basement of a pizza parlor.

"Will you shut up man?" was definitely fed to Biden via an earpiece.

It was being said at our home and other homes across America when Trump started in on his 120 interruptions.

An earpiece?

This is novel. Trump's usual excuse for bombing out is that Biden had access to the questions before the debate.

Nah, that's pure Biden. It was exhausting listening to all the interruptions and a perfect example of why Trump shouldn't be president. No sense of decorum. No respect for his opponent. No respect for rules or the sensibilities of the event. No respect for the American people. Trump must go.

Trump gets hit with over 3 years of idiotic conspiracy theories by Dems = fine.
