Donald Trump, who has repeatedly pushed the unfounded conspiracy theory that Hillary Clinton suffers from some secret debilitating illness, had a new theory for his supporters at a rally on Saturday: Maybe she’s a drug user. Trump, in full “unshackled” mode, told a crowd of supporters in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, that Clinton, who has won both presidential debates according to most polls, seemed “pumped up” at the beginning of the second debate last Sunday, but that he thought her energy then waned as the debate went on. So, in Donald Trump’s reality, it of course stands to reason that she was thus “pumped up” on some kind of performance-enhancing drugs and that they should both take drug tests before the third debate, because athletes.
