The Internet Wants to Know Why Donald Trump Keeps Sniffling

Donald Trump, who has recently made a point of raising questions about Hillary Clinton’s health, appeared to be sniffling during the presidential debate on Monday night—and the internet took notice.

Trump and Clinton have recently sparred over their personal health, beginning with Trump raising doubts and suggesting that Clinton is medically unfit for the presidency. Clinton was diagnosed with pneumonia earlier this month, but there is no evidence to suggest she is suffering from more serious ailments.

Her campaign has consistently refuted doubts about her health and has, in turn, raised questions about the legitimacy of Trump’s own medical records. A letter written by his doctor in just five minutes described Trump’s health as “astonishingly excellent” and said he would “unequivocally” be “the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency.” While Trump had said he would release more detailed medical records, he released only a summary of a recent physical during a much-hyped appearance on The Dr. Oz Show.
