At a campaign rally in Portsmouth, NH on Saturday afternoon, Donald Trump challenged Hillary Clinton to take a drug test prior to competing in the third presidential debate. Trump promised he was clean, saying: “I’m willing to do it.”
He mocked Hillary Clinton’s memory, saying she told the FBI “I don’t remember” 39 times when questioned about her private email server. “Maybe that’s why she has to do debate prep,” Trump quipped. “Cause she’s got a bad memory.”
“A lot of things are going on folks,” he continued. “I think she’s actually getting pumped up if you want to know the truth.”
“She’s getting pumped up. You understand?”
Several prominent Democrats, including former Vermont Governor Howard Dean, suggested that Donald Trump looked like he was on cocaine at the second debate.
“She’s getting pumped up for [the debate] Wednesday night… You know maybe, we’re like athletes. I beat 17 governors and senators, I beat all these people, we’re like athletes. Hillary beat Bernie, although it looks like Bernie got a little bit of a bad deal if you look at the WikiLeaks. But we’re like athletes,” he said.
“So athletes, they make them take a drug test. I think we should take a drug test prior to the debate,” he said, drawing cheers from the crowd.
“Why don’t we do that? We should take a drug test,” he said. “Because I don’t know what’s going on with her.”
“Because at the beginning of the last debate, she was all pumped up at the beginning, and at the end she was like, ‘Oh, take me down.’ She could barely get back to her car.”
“So I think we should take a drug test,” he repeated. “I’m willing to do it.”
