Donald Trump’s repetitive sniffling and water-sipping during the first presidential debate Monday night caused the Twitterverse to speculate if he was on something.
“Notice Trump sniffling all the time. Coke user?” tweeted former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean, a doctor and a former Democratic presidential candidate.

From there, the hashtag #CocaineTrump took off, with the Twitterati chiming in with their own thoughts on the Republican nominee’s sniffles.

However, not everyone appreciated the former governor’s tweet.
Kevin Corke, Fox News’ White House correspondent, called Dean’s remark “unbecoming.”
@GovHowardDean unbecoming Governor. Americans expect better from you.

Matt Rosoff, an executive editor at BusinessInsider, rebutted Dean’s assertion.
@GovHowardDean He’s 70 dude. He’d be dead.
