WIRED BIDEN: What Was It That Slipped Out of Joe’s Jacket During Debate?
Prior to the debate on Tuesday night, the Trump campaign requested that both President Trump and former Vice President Biden be inspected to make sure that neither one of them was wearing a wire or any kind of listening device.
Initially, the Biden campaign agreed to this, but then declined the day of the debate and I think we’ve learned why that is.
Joe Biden is a joke and we know that he can barely get out a coherent sentence or even keep track of what he’s talking about most of the time, so it would be very likely that they would put an earpiece on him to help him navigate the water of the debate.
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.

Following the debate, and possibly even during the debate, people began noticing something strange with Joe Biden. They believe that he actually was wearing wire of some sort to get fed talking points or things to say.
During the debate, some people noticed that Biden reached into his jacket at one point and seemingly readjusted something. After he does so and removes his hand from his jacket, it looks like a wire of some sort sticks out of the jacket. Take a look.

If that isn’t some sort of wire in his jacket, then I don’t know what else it could be.
There are some people coming to his defense stating that it was just his shirt. Politifact said the following about the incident:
The video appears to have been posted around 9:45 p.m on Sept. 29. It was then shared in several Facebook groups dedicated to Trump and QAnon, a baseless conspiracy theory about child sex trafficking. As of Sept. 30, claims that Biden wore a wire had been shared in hundreds of Facebook posts, according to CrowdTangle, a social media insights tool.
Biden was not wearing a wire during the debate — the video shows a crease in Biden’s dress shirt, which is accentuated by the bright TV lights. Thin shadows similar to the one highlighted in the clip also appear on the left side of his shirt.
What do you think? Was it a wire or was it just his shirt?
