Trump Calls for Drug Test Before Next Debate [VIDEO]

At a campaign event in New Hampshire, Republican nominee Donald Trump called for both his opponent Hillary Clinton and himself to submit to a drug test before the next debate, because, as he said, “I don’t know what’s going on with her.” He compared presidential contenders to athletes:

“Athletes, they make them take a drug test, right. I think we should take a drug test prior to the debate,” he said.

“Why don’t we do that? We should take a drug test, prior, because I don’t know what’s going on with her, but at the beginning of her last debate, she was all pumped up at the beginning, and at the end it was like, ‘Oh, take me down.’ ”

“She could barely reach her car.”

This is an interesting idea, considering it was Howard Dean who suggested that the GOP presidential contender is a cocaine user. Dean – a medical doctor – made his diagnosis based on Trump’s sniffles during the first debate. Submitting to a drug test would either confirm Dean’s hypothesis, or disprove it.

No one of course would agree to this. The media and the debate commission would think a drug test before a debate is preposterous.

I don’t think they’d necessarily expect anything to come up with Trump’s test. They’re probably worried what might show up on Hillary’s test results. What do you think would come up?
