In a debate format change announced over the weekend, Joe Biden will be allowed to participate while sleeping in a large recliner. The DNC decided on this rule after the former VP made some unforced errors over the weekend. In just the last 36 hours, Joe Biden forgot who he was, endorsed President Trump and made a series of ethnic slurs toward some disabled children.
“Yes, Joe had a busy… and colorful weekend,” DNC chairman, Tom Perez told The Glorious American. “But this new rule did not take that into account. We just feel the two candidates should have a casual discussion. Who knows, maybe pop a few Valium—I don’t know exactly. We’ll have to see how it goes.”
Bernie Sanders, who does all his best yelling on his feet, is outraged about the new format. “It’s my belief that both the Democrat and Republican establishment know how ridiculous I look when I’m sitting down. I can—and have overcome anything they throw at me. But this? This may be too much.”
Update: The DNC is now also considering a small tweak of not airing the debate on television.
