List Rules Vote up the reasons you think Trump can't stop sniffing during debates against Hillary Clinton.

If there’s one lesson from the presidential debates, it's that Donald Trump sniffles a lot. What’s up with that? Did he ever have the sniffles so bad on The Apprentice? Are there tapes of him saying that it’s okay to grab the Kleenex by the box as long as you have a cold? Donald Trump sniffing during debates has become a mystery for the ages. Are his microphones consistently defective? Is he allergic to moderators?

Donald Trump sniffling at debate memes have all but taken over the news cycle since his first debate with Hillary Clinton, and at the time it was vaguely unsettling. Now, though, Donald Trump's debate sniffing has become a welcome reprieve from the sewer pipe of news that is the election. But the American public still has to know why the GOP's main man can’t stop sniffling.
