Carrie Fisher, ‘cocaine expert,’ says Donald Trump’s sniffling is suspect

Update, Oct. 11, 11:30 a.m. PST: Carrie Fisher has backtracked on her previous tweet saying that Donald Trump “absolutely” has a cocaine problem.

When asked about her statement at the New York Film Festival, Fisher said, “His brother was an alcoholic and died of it. I think it scared him. He says he doesn’t smoke, he doesn’t drink, he doesn’t do drugs, so he generally tells the worst truth to shock you. I know something about this, so if he did coke, he would want you to know.”

So what’s Fisher’s analysis now about what’s causing all of Trump’s sniffling during public appearances?

“Nerves,” she said.

Original story:

In the second presidential debate, viewers caught another round of Donald Trump’s sniffling problem, and Carrie Fisher has finally said what we’ve all been thinking.

It ain’t allergies, people.

Fisher, who is best known for her role as Princess Leia in the Star Wars franchise, has been open about her past dalliances with the drug, which she told The Daily Beast she’s tried a few times.

There were past rumors that Fisher even had a “coke nail” during filming of Return of the Jedi, but Fisher said that wasn’t one of her vices.

She did, however, confirm that she did cocaine on the set of The Empire Strikes Back, but said she “didn’t even like coke that much,” but added that she would take anything to get high.

Still, Fisher’s apparently had enough experience with the drug that she can spot out those sniffles a mile away.

Trump’s nose wasn’t the only part of the debate Fisher commented on, however. She’s clearly got strong opinions about the man separate from his pre-debate rituals.

Do you think Donald Trump’s sniffles were the result of some pre-debate cocaine? Or does he just have a bad nose?
