Here we go again! Voters were none too pleased when Donald Trump forgot his tissues during the second presidential debate between him and Hillary Clinton on Oct. 9, and they’re starting to think it’s a tell for when he’s lying! See the hilarious tweets about his sniffing problem, here.
What did you expect? When Donald Trump, 70, and Hillary Clinton, 68, faced off for the second time at the Oct. 9 presidential debate, there was SURE to be controversy, especially considering the fact that just two days prior the Washington Post leaked a tape of him saying he could just “grab women by the p***y,” but what voters latched on to was something much more benign: his prolonged case of the sniffles.
During the first debate on Sept. 26, voters noticed that Donald kept inhaling sharply through his nose between comments, and they couldn’t tell if he was having breathing problems, a runny nose, or just did *something else*, but they were DEFINITELY annoyed. However, it’s certainly not a cold because two weeks later on Oct. 9, the sniff was still going strong. Once again, voters on Twitter rushed to their safe haven to mock the Republican candidate’s obnoxious noise-making, and now they’re starting to think the sniff is actually a tell for when he’s fibbing!
Here are some of the particularly savage tweets that voters shared online:
the bigger the sniff, the bigger the lie. #debate

After the first debate, Stephen Colbert definitely noticed the oddity and brought it up during his live debate special monologue claiming he “sounded like he was fighting off a cold, with cocaine.” Hey, Steve said it, not us! We can’t wait to hear what he will have to say on his next show, because we definitely debunked the just fighting a “cold” part of the theory.
