via Politico Donald Trump on Tuesday morning denied he was suffering from a case of the “sniffles” during his primetime debate showdown on Monday night, when he could frequently be heard sharply inhaling through his nose.

“No, no sniffles. You know, the mic was very bad, but maybe it was good enough to hear breathing,” Trump told “Fox & Friends.” “But no sniffles. No cold.”

Trump’s sniffling became a viral sensation during the evening, with Hillary Clinton supporter Howard Dean raising a sensational theory about why Trump seemed to be having some trouble.


Alright listen. Do I care that Trump was probably (maybe?) blowing lines before the debate? Not one bit, especially not when half the country under the age of 35 pops Adderall like tic-tacs and Adderall is basically legalized coke!

And let’s not pretend Trump doesn’t know his away around the Charlie. Let’s look at the tale of the tape. He’s wealthy, white, went to private school, lives in NYC, hangs out with models and had his heyday was in the 1980’s. If he DIDN’T blow the occasional line, I’d think something was majorly wrong with him, but to deny having the sniffles when it’s on video and 100 million people saw it is just a savage move.

It’s like the old Eddie Murphy bit.

Hey Donald, how bout them sniffles?

– “wasn’t me”

But we all saw you and heard it on LIVE TV!

– “wasn’t me”



Anyway. Maybe I should put my 10 year career as a political consultant to good use and give some well thought out debate analysis.

Trump didn’t look like too much of a dick and Hillary didn’t fall down. I’ll call it a draw.
