Howard Dean Pushes Trump Cocaine Conspiracy Theory

Written by Philip Hodges

Liberals always poke fun at conservatives for pushing what they call conspiracy theories about Hillary Clinton. You know, like the whole body double thing, the earpiece at the town hall event, the hidden teleprompter at the debate, the Parkinson’s disease (actually anything pertaining to Hillary’s “alleged” health problems…everyone knows she’s in perfect health), and I’m sure many others.

They call them conspiracy theories to try to make them look stupid without having to actually respond to them.

Democrats might bill themselves as “fact-based” and “pro-science” only believe things when there’s “hard evidence” and all that, but they’re not much different. They’ve done their share of diagnosing Trump as being mentally ill, or being a psychopath.

Howard Dean’s not letting go of his own conspiracy theory which posits that Donald Trump is a cocaine addict, based on his sniffles during the first presidential debate. And not only that, but in the early morning hours, Trump was sending out tweets regarding “sex tapes.”

“So let me be serious about this,” Dean said in an interview. “First of all, Donald Trump was up in the wee hours of the morning—Katy Tur, I just saw Katy Tur’s tweets—he was tweeting at 3 and 4 o’clock in the morning about sex tapes….People who stay up at 3 and 4 and 5 o’clock in the morning tweeting about sex tapes, these are not normal people,” Dean said.

And therefore…a coke addict.

My point in bringing this is up is not to discount what Dean is saying while giving credence to all the theories about Hillary. The point is, both sides engage in it, and it’s disingenuous to act like only conservatives have “conspiracy theories.” Suggesting Trump has a cocaine problem because he sniffled is like saying Hillary has serious health problems as evidenced by her persistent cough. (Although the former is a good bit more far-fetched.)

In case you’re not familiar with who Howard Dean is, I think he was the governor of some state up in New England, but what he’s really known for is this:
