Donald Trump may have been on the receiving end of cocaine allegations from the likes of Carrie Fisher — a self-proclaimed “expert” — after his sniffles at earlier debates, but he went on the offensive Saturday speculating that Hillary Clinton was “getting pumped up” and calling for a drug test before Wednesday’s third and final presidential debate in Las Vegas.
At a rally in Portsmouth, N.H., Trump implied that Clinton had been given drugs before the previous debate.
“I think she’s actually getting pumped up, you want to know the truth,” he said. “She’s getting pumped up, you understand. In fact, we’re going to be talking about that in a few minutes.”
He then went on to talk about “beating 17 senators, governors” and Bernie Sanders getting a “bad deal.” But, as he promised, Trump returned to suggesting Clinton was on drugs and asking for a pre-debate test.
“I think we should take a drug test prior to the debate,” he said. “I do.”
“At the beginning of her last debate,” he continued, “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. So I think we should take a drug test. Anyway, I’m willing to do it.”
Trump has repeatedly criticized Clinton’s health and lack of “stamina,” calling attention to her weakened state at a September 11 memorial event when she was suffering from pneumonia.
