And because Donald Trump is a complete idiot.
During a campaign rally Saturday in New Hampshire, the GOP presidential nominee compared himself and Clinton to athletes.
“Athletes, they make them take a drug test, right. I think we should take a drug test prior to the debate,” Trump said.
“Why don’t we do that? We should take a drug test, prior, because I don’t know what’s going on with her, but at the beginning of her last debate, she was all pumped up at the beginning, and at the end it was like, ‘Oh, take me down,’ ” Trump said, imitating Clinton.
“She could barely reach her car.’”
Yeah, they’re athletes, alright.
Two septuagenarian, corrupt, athletes.
Trump has repeatedly hit on Clinton’s physical health, while the rest of the world has legitimate concerns about his mental fitness to do a stressful job, which also requires a considerable amount of diplomacy.
That’s diplomacy… and it’s rarely displayed at 3am during raging Tweetstorms.
What a drug screening will reveal is debatable. Clinton and Trump are both likely to be on any number of medications.
I have elderly parents. It’s rare you get to be as old as Clinton and Trump without requiring some sort of medication, whether it’s to regulate blood pressure, cholesterol, or irregular heartbeat.
Perhaps this sudden interest in Clinton’s drug regiment is inspired by some who have suggested that Trump, himself, might be a cokehead.
The constant sniffing is odd, but I’m willing to write it off to allergies, or something along those lines.
We can write this up as one more bit of idiocy from Trump, as he hopes to distract from the fact that he doesn’t know what he’s doing.
