PORTSMOUTH, New Hamphire (The Adobo Chronicles, Washinton Bureau) – Upping his criticism of Hillary Clinton’s debate performances, Donald Trump suggested on Saturday that his opponent had been on drugs during their second debate.
“I think we should take a drug test prior to the debate,” Mr. Trump told a crowd of thousands gathered at an event in Portsmouth.
“We should take a drug test prior, because I don’t know what’s going on with her. But at the beginning of her last debate — she was all pumped up at the beginning, and at the end it was like, ‘Oh, take me down.’ She could barely reach her car, ” the Republican candidate said.
In an exclusive interview with The Adobo Chronicles, Clinton said that she had accepted Trump’s challenge and both will undergo a drug test an hour before the start of the third and final presidential debate scheduled for October 19 at the University of Nevada at Las Vegas.
But Clinton said she had one condition: that throughout the entire televised debate, both candidates will be hooked up to a polygraph machine, otherwise known as a lie-detector machine. Every time a candidate mentions a lie, a buzzer will sound, alerting the moderator as well as the live and television audience about the non-truth. The Trump campaign agreed, albeit hesitantly.
The Commission on Presidential Debates welcomed the proposal and is considering making the polygraph a permanent feature of all future major political debates.
