Could someone get Donald Trump a tissue? The Republican presidential candidate couldn’t stop sniffling during the first 2016 presidential debate on Monday, September 26.

While the controversial businessman was busy yelling at opponent Hillary Clinton, the internet was pleading with someone — anyone — to get Trump “some Claritin please.”

“Trump was making fun of Hillary’s health but if he sniffs 1 more time i’m calling 911,” one person tweeted after the mogul, 70, mocked the Democratic presidential nominee’s recent battle with pneumonia.

Others, including former Vermont governor Howard Dean, suggested that Trump’s sniffling was due to drugs.

“Trump literally sounds like he is high on cocaine right now. All that damn sniffling and babbling #debates,” another viewer tweeted, while Dean wrote on Twitter: “Notice Trump sniffing all the time. Coke user?”

Others tweeted that perhaps the former Apprentice host was dying.

“Trump keeps sniffling.. he’s sick omfg trump dying,” another shared with their followers. “Why does Trump keep sniffling? Secret illness he’s hidden from the American people?”

Viewers also kept track of the amount of water Trump drank, and several people went as far as to create Twitter accounts for his sniffles.
