'Sniffling Trump' Dominates Social Media During First Presidential Debate

“Sniffling Donald” was the hot topic on social media during Monday night’s first presidential debate at Hofstra University after Donald Trump appeared to sniffle many times at the podium.

Trump’s apparent case of the sniffles sparked an immediate reaction from former Democratic presidential candidate Gov. Howard Dean, who took to Twitter to outrageously question whether the GOP nominee could be a “coke user,” Fox News reported.

 

The former governor's remarks came out of left field for some, especially considering Trump has been very vocal about his aversion to alcohol and cigarettes, Fox News noted.

Trump brushed off the “Sniffling Donald” charges, which had Twitter users wondering if he might have been fighting a cold, Tuesday morning on “Fox and Friends.”

“No, no sniffles. No, You know, the mic was very bad, but maybe it was good enough to hear breathing, but there was no sniffles,” he said.

Trump then seemed to allude to the fact that the whole thing might have been a set up.

“My microphone was terrible. I wonder, was it set up that way on purpose? My microphone, in the room they couldn’t hear me, you know, it was going on and off. Which isn’t exactly great. I wonder if it was set up that way, but it was terrible," he said, according to Talking Points Memo.

The health of the candidates is front and center after Hillary Clinton's pneumonia stumble earlier this month, The Hollywood Reporter noted.
