And he did it with a â€œdad joke.â€
On Tuesday, a conspiracy theory among PresidentÂ Donald Trumpâ€™s supporters sprouted suggesting that the former vice president would wear an electronic device in his ear during the first presidential debate.
According to the theory that NBC News said was pushed in a text message sent by the Trump campaign, Biden also declined to â€œundergo inspection for electronic ear pieces before debate.â€
The Biden campaign denied the disinformation, which came just days after the president suggested drug tests to make sure Biden wasnâ€™t using â€œperformance enhancing drugsâ€ for the debate.
But Biden did come clean on Tuesday afternoon on Twitter with a photo showing exactly which â€œperformance enhancersâ€ he used.
Naturally, Twitter users had their own thoughts.
Some said the choice of ice cream was no coincidence.Â
Others werenâ€™t impressed by the earphones.
Some people cried conspiracy…..
Others thought Bidenâ€™s tweet did what it was designed to do.
Others were resigned to the fact that it wouldnâ€™t stop the disinformation campaign.
