The Biden campaign has been very busy behind the scenes reportedly trying to change the rules at the last minute. In fact, what they are doing is being called “unprecedented.” But that’s not all. President Donald Trump’s staffers are teasing a special weapon the president will unleash at the debate. You don’t want to miss this.

You may have heard about the latest controversy surrounding the debate scheduled for Tuesday night in Ohio. According to sources close to the Trump campaign, Joe Biden’s handlers agreed to an inspection by a third party of both candidates’ ears a few days ago.

The Trump campaign requested an ear inspection to look for electronic devices, and according to New York Post reporter Ebony Bowden, initially, the Biden campaign agreed. Then, at the last minute, they changed their minds.

“NEW: Joe Biden’s campaign agreed to an inspection for electronic ear pieces at tonight’s debate several days ago but are now declining, a source familiar tells me,” Bowden tweeted Tuesday morning.

“The story, first reported by Fox News, also revealed that Biden’s team requested two breaks during the 90-minute debate, or every 30 minutes,” Bowden reports via the New York Post. “This request was shot down by Trump’s campaign. Biden’s campaign did not respond to a request for comment Tuesday.”

“The suggested changes to the first match-up between the septuagenarian candidates comes as Biden, 77, is dogged by questions over his mental stamina and ability to endure intense questioning,” she adds.

Now, why would the Biden campaign agree to an ear inspection, then change their minds? If they have nothing to hide, why not agree to the inspection? Especially when the Biden campaign has a special request of their own.

Over the last several weeks, sources told Fox News that “the former vice president’s campaign has also requested two breaks — one every 30 minutes — to break up the 90-minute commercial-free program. But that request has been denied by their Trump counterparts, the sources said.”

The Biden campaign could have said they will agree to an ear inspection if the Trump campaign agrees to some type of break for their frail candidate. Maybe the Trump people would have agreed to one break, not two, in lieu of an ear inspection. That’s pretty standard for these backroom negotiations before a debate.

However, the Biden handlers for “some reason” are backing out of the ear inspection when it’s clear their candidate needs at least one break if not two. You can make up your own mind about what is going on.

“Refuses drug test, requests bathroom breaks every 30 minutes. Refuses to be inspected for electronic ear piece after agreeing. They aren’t even trying to hide what they’re doing,” Darci Morgan tweeted.

The Trump campaign is teasing a special weapon. 

Jason Miller, who is a Senior Adviser to the Trump campaign, posted a cryptic tweet that points to a special weapon the president will be bringing to the debate.

“Very intriguing guest list for Tuesday night in Cleveland!” tweeted Miller.

For each debate, both candidates submit a list of who they chose to be in the audience. Trump is keeping his list under wraps. With this Ohio debate having a limited audience, the people they chose are meant to send a special message moreover than past debates.

“Usually, the special guests whom presidential nominees invite to their debates are meant to underscore some central theme of the candidate’s agenda or uplifting moment in their biography,” LA Times reported in 2016.

Who can forget when Trump brought Bill Clinton’s accusers to the second presidential debate? The four — Juanita Broaddrick, Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey, and Kathy Shelton — eventually sat in the audience alongside other ticketed members.

So, with that as a precedent, get ready for Trump to utilize some very special people as his guests at Tuesday night’s debate.

Maybe Biden accuser Tara Reade? Or those who have special knowledge about Hunter Biden? Whoever the president has in mind will for sure be a show stopper.

Let’s be clear: if Joe Biden somehow stays on stage for 90 straight minutes and only has a few gaffes, the mainstream media will declare he “hit it out of the park.” That’s the reality of the press we have to endure in this country. Also, count on Fox News moderator Chris Wallace to interrupt the president while he coddles Joe Biden.

That’s why it’s so important that Americans tune in and make up their own minds. We the People are the final arbiter of this upcoming election, not the elite media clowns who have proven they will say anything to stop Trump’s re-election.
