Recently Joe Biden promised to challenge President Trump to a push-up contest if the president mocks his age. It appears we aren’t the only ones who want to see this happen. America needs to know the answer to this question and so Bovada, one of the world’s leading online sportsbooks, has released live betting props on a “Presidential Combine,” pitting Biden vs. Trump in a push-up contest, bench press contest, and 40-yard dash.
They are currently taking bets on a few different matchups for the senior contenders in several feats of strength with Trump in the lead in every category except push-ups.
Trump is ahead in the 225 lb. bench press, the 40-yard dash, and longest vertical jump. I propose we forego the usual debate format and instead do this. I’m not even kidding. Can we make the Democrat primary contenders compete this way too? Something in the vein of the 1970s era Battle of the Network Stars?
Since election season in America is about twelve months too long, this would at least give us a way to get through it without becoming alcoholics. Who’s with me?
