Trump took to the podium on Wednesday to remark on the situation in Iran, but the constant sniffing and slurred speech seem to have overshadowed the words that were spoken.

In fact, his state has many, once again, speculating about the president’s health, just as they did when he made his unexpected (and still mostly unexplained) visit to Walter Reed National Medical Center in November and then inexplicably traveled with his doctor on a very short trip.

So many questions

Questions about an Adderall addiction have popped up several times during the last few years. Comedian and actor Tom Arnold made the claim that Trump “abused Adderall” on the set of Celebrity Apprentice. Comedian Noel Casler made a similar claim as well, saying it was because Trump would get nervous when he had to read.

“He crushes up his Adderall and he sniffs it because he can’t read and he gets really nervous when he has to read cue cards.”

Those rumors combined with Trump’s performance at the podium have #AdderallTrump and #SniffyMcAdderall trending on Twitter.

And some on Twitter remember how the media obsessed over Clinton’s health and how they “were concerned as hell about Hillary’s coughing.”

At this point, claims the President suffers from a drug addiction is purely speculation … but Twitter was happy to remind us that the physical and mental health of POTUS is in fact something we all need to be concerned about.

Not just Twitter

But it wasn’t just Twitter users getting in on the fun.
