A CNN guest accused Trump of sniffing more loudly than any coke addict he’s “ever known” Monday following Sunday night’s presidential debate.
Southern Illinois University debate coach Todd Graham, who reportedly specializes in “linguistics and body language,” made the comment after being asked “what’s with the sniffing” by CNN host Brooke Baldwin.
“Have we figured that out, the sniffing?” Baldwin inquires.
After arguing that Trump could have easily fixed the issue by practicing with a microphone, “which he didn’t do,” Graham responded by calling the Republican nominee’s nasal breathing “unbearable.”
“But last night it was unbearably strong. He was sniffing louder than any coke fiend I’ve ever known,” Graham said. “I just thought, ‘Boy oh boy, this is not going to go over well.’ It was for the whole 90 minutes.”
Former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean stirred controversy after the first debate by making similar comments as well.
“Something funny was going on with Trump last night. Do I think it’s cocaine? Probably not,” Dean said last month. “But again, the sniffling, the grandiosity, the delusions, the pressured speech: this guy has already proven himself to be unstable, the question is: Why is he unstable?”
