Trump accuses Biden of taking performance-enhancing substance

President Donald Trump, in his latest shredding of political niceties, suggested Tuesday that his Democratic opponent Joe Biden has taken drugs to improve his performance in debates.

The Republican, who is well behind in national polls, initially insinuated during a Fox News interview that “something was strange” with what he saw as Biden’s improvement during the Democratic primary season debates.

Early on, when there were multiple Democratic candidates lined up on stage, Biden was “a disaster” and “grossly incompetent,” Trump said. But at a later debate where Biden was one-on-one with leftist rival Bernie Sanders, “he was OK.”

Trump told Fox he didn’t want to say what he thought was the reason for the improvement.

Seconds later, he did.

“He’s taking something (that) you know, gives him some clarity, or whatever,” he said.

Trump repeated his demand that Biden should undergo a drug test before their first of three presidential debates scheduled for September 29.

“I would take one too,” he said.

Biden responded by telling a Florida radio station “I’m looking forward to the debate and he’s a fool. The comments are just foolish.”

Trump, 74, has for months tried to persuade voters that Biden, 77, is suffering from mental decline.

The former businessman cites Biden’s penchant for gaffes — which some believe to be linked to the Democrat’s lifelong struggle with stuttering — and his reluctance to face unscripted questioning from reporters.

Trump — who takes questions from reporters almost daily but is known for his own frequently garbled and baffling statements — said, “Joe is lost. We can’t have a president that is mentally lost.”

Trump told Fox that, with attacks from the Democrat side gaining intensity, he will now “take the gloves off.”

Meet the 'Frontliners' of the coronavirus pandemic

The coronavirus has taken a devastating toll on American life, causing 200,000 deaths and triggering a recession that has cost the U.S. economy tens of millions of jobs. But it has also, in many cases, brought out the best in humanity, with people helping those in need.

“Frontliners,” a new limited series from Ryot in partnership with Yahoo News, tells the story of the pandemic from the point of view of individuals doing what they can to help their communities.

They include a microbiologist studying bacterial pathogens at a Texas college campus virtually shuttered in the wake of COVID-19; the director of a food bank providing for people in need in California; and a Hollywood agent-turned-pizza chef who has been making and delivering free pizzas to essential workers and others in need in New Orleans.

“I thought, I’m going to wake up, make as many pizzas as I can and go deliver them to as many deserving people as I can,” says Larry Galper, who founded NOLA Love Pizza during the pandemic using Instagram. “People who think no one’s thinking about them.”

“This has been the experience of my life,” Galper adds. “This truly has given me the most purpose I’ve ever felt. Unfortunately it was spawned by a worldwide pandemic. But there are silver linings everywhere.”

The coronavirus may have 'one big trick.' Scientists are learning how to stop it.

The coronavirus appears to have “one big trick,” Shane Crotty, a professor in the Center for Infectious Disease and Vaccine Research at the La Jolla Institute for Immunology, told Bloomberg.

That trick — avoiding the human body’s “initial innate immune response for a significant period of time,” and, particularly, the response of a substance called interferon that typically helps orchestrate the defense against viral pathogens — is linked to more severe cases. Indeed, new studies published last week in Science found that an insufficient amount of interferon, the production of which may sometimes be inhibited in people with previously “silent” gene mutations, could signal a more dangerous infection because the lack of interferon can overstimulate the rest of the immune system.

The good news is that, because scientists are catching on to the virus’ strategy, they have a better idea of how to prevent it from causing severe infections. Writes Bloomberg, the work highlights the potential for interferon-based therapies, which are typically used in in the early stages of a viral infection when it’s easier to avoid life-threatening respiratory failure. Now, dozens of studies focusing on interferon treatments are recruiting COVID-19 patients. Read more at Bloomberg.
