During Sunday night’s event in St. Louis, much of the Twitterverse noticed that Trump was sniffling into his microphone for the second debate in a row. Fisher was apparently watching the showdown, and the Princess Leia actress responded to a fan’s tweet about what she thinks are the cause for Trump’s sniffles.

The conversation is a throwback to some controversial remarks Howard Dean issued about Trump as he was getting mocked for his sniffling during the first debate. While some thought Trump had a cold, Dean raised several eyebrows after he floated the possibility that the mogul’s noises were a side effect of cocaine use.
Fisher, for her part, said she could confirm based on her past experience as a drug user. She has spoken openly about her addiction before, having said that she took drugs to self-medicate for bipolar disorder.
