The world is talking about one major thing related to Monday’s presidential debate. No, it’s not Trump’s nigh-admission that he doesn’t pay his taxes or his insults related to Hillary Clinton’s looks and “stamina” or even his condescension. What the world wants to know is why was Donald Trump sniffling so much?
Sure, he could have a cold – something that in his own mind would disqualify anyone from the presidency based on the remarks he has made about that time Hillary Clinton coughed and the time she came down with pneumonia – but former DNC chair Howard Dean has a different, more interesting, and possibly true theory: Trump ‘Scarfaced’ it up before the debate.
“Notice Trump sniffing all the time,” Dean tweeted during the debate. “Coke user?”
Notice Trump sniffing all the time. Coke user?

While it is more likely that Trump has come down with a campaign-ending case of the sniffles, he did spent an hour and a half screaming insane conspiracy theories at the nice lady across from him, gulping water like he was Marco Rubio giving 10,000 responses to the State of the Union Address, and generally being himself – but while sniffing constantly. All of these, along with his constant sweating, are signs of cocaine use.
Frankly, if Trump has been treated for any kind of addiction, we will not know anytime soon because he refuses to release his medical records. We don’t know if it’s just a cold, either, for the same reason.
Was it cocaine-related nasal drip? A cold? Herpagonosyphilaids? We’ll never know until Donald Trump, like Hillary Clinton, does more than release a shady doctor’s letter and show up on a quack TV doctor’s television show. For now, it’s probably best to assume he has a drug problem. After all, “many people are saying” he does. He should drop out of the race and seek counseling for his problem.
On a lighter note, remember when this was all it took to end a presidential campaign?
