But going into the biggest speech of Biden's almost five decades in national politics, the Trump campaign and the GOP made a concerted effort to paint the Democratic nominee as doddering and in "cognitive decline," lowering expectations.

President Donald Trump's adult sons, Eric and Donald Jr., appeared on Fox News all week claiming that Biden couldn't even string a sentence together.
