At a rally in New Hampshire Saturday, Donald Trump suggested he and Hillary Clinton should take a drug test prior to the final presidential debate.
Trump announced on Twitter this morning that he would be talking about the drug problem in New Hampshire and around the country:
Landing in New Hampshire soon to talk about the massive drug problem there, and all over the country.

Trump did talk about the drug problem but also suggested Hillary might be using something. “She’s getting pumped,” Trump said, adding, “You understand.” “In fact we’re going to be talking about that in a few minutes,” he continued.
Trump then compared himself and Clinton to athletes saying, “We’re like athletes, right? Look, I beat 17 senators, governors— I beat all these people.” “Hillary beat Bernie although it looked like Bernie got a little bit of a bad deal based on wikileaks, right?” he continued.
“But we’re like athletes, right? So athletes they’re making them more and more…athletes, they take a drug test. I think that we should take a drug test prior to the debate,” Trump suggested. “Why don’t we do that? We should take a drug test prior ’cause I don’t know what’s going on with her,” he continued adding, “at the beginning of her last debate she was all pumped up at the beginning and at the end it was like, ugh, take me down.”
This is the same way Trump brought up the accusations about Ted Cruz’s father hanging out with Lee Harvey Oswald (based on a National Enquirer story). Is there an Enquirer story to hang this one on? Here’s the video.
