Republican nominee Donald Trump’s audible sniffling during Monday night’s presidential debate drew attention on social media.
Body language is often one of the biggest factors in presidential debates. And Trump’s sniffles were noticeable to the television audience, which was expected to number 100 million.

Former Democratic presidential candidate Howard Dean implied on Twitter the sniffles could be a symptom of drug use:
Notice Trump sniffing all the time. Coke user?

More viewers raised questions about Trump’s health, an interesting twist after the Republican candidate seized Clinton’s health scare earlier this month to raise questions about her fitness to serve as president.
Trump has a cold.
