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 and then inexplicably traveled with his doctor on a very short trip.

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.”
And some on Twitter remember how the media obsessed over Clinton’s health and how they “were concerned as hell about Hillary’s coughing.”
Unless I missed it, not ONE news show discussed the sniffapalooza speech made by #SniffyMcAdderall yesterday.
He can’t pronounce *tolerated* or *accomplishments* during a MAJOR speech, but not a PEEP about it?
But they were concerned as hell about Hillary’s coughing. SMDH.

The symptoms of Adderall addiction include incomplete thoughts, impulsive behaviors, and memory loss.

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.
Can we all agree that the seemingly insane moron with the nuke codes at least needs a full evaluation from an actual doctor who won't take a sharpie to the test results? #SniffyMcAdderall

It wasn’t just Twitter users getting in on the fun, however. Ana Kasparian and John Iadarola of The Young Turks did a segment after the remarks pointing out some of the more bizarre (and untruthful) moments.
