What flew out of Trump's nose? Adderall trends as Internet says that explains 'poor temper, lack of control'
A clip was doing the rounds which showed something coming out of Trump's nose. And soon, #Adderall started trending
On September 7, Labor Day, President Trump held a press conference from the White House where he attacked Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden. According to a CNN report, he said, "Biden's a stupid person. You know that.” Trump didn’t spare Biden’s running mate Kamala Harris either.
Harris had earlier spoken regarding not trusting the effectiveness of a coronavirus vaccine without top health officials assuring about it, according to a report by The Hill. Trump said, "It undermines science, and what happens is all of a sudden you'll have this incredible vaccine and because of that fake rhetoric, it's a political rhetoric... that's all that is."
He even had a few exchanges with a reporter who Trump asked to remove his mask. According to Fox News, Jeff Mason of Reuters was about to speak, but Trump interjected and said, "You're going to have to take that off, please. You can take it off. How many feet are you away?" However, Mason refused and said he’ll "speak a lot louder".
"Well, if you don't take it off — you're very muffled," Trump responded, "so if you would take it off, it would be a lot easier." To which Mason again said he’ll speak "a lot louder" and enquired "Is that better?", after raising his voice. After POTUS answered in the affirmative, he continued. However, according to the report, he took a jab at Mason later when another reporter removed his mask to ask a question. Trump said, "Sso clear...as opposed to everybody else, where they refuse."
The bombshell report of The Atlantic also found its way in the press conference. Trump brushed off the allegations made in the article about him mocking US service members killed in World War I during a 2018 trip to France. The Hill quoted him saying, "Only an animal would say things like that.” However, according to the report, he alleged that Pentagon officials want to "fight wars so that all of those wonderful companies that make the bombs and make the planes and make everything else stay happy."
He even claimed that even though top Defense officials are not "in love" with him, he is popular among service members. The article also alleged that Trump had called John McCain a "loser", but even though the POTUS agreed that he was not a fan of McCain, he denied the allegations.
However, social media was abuzz regarding something else. A clip was doing the rounds which showed something coming out of Trump’s nose. And soon, #Adderall started trending. A user said about the drug, “I knew #Adderall was trending because of Trump. I was absolutely not expecting it to literally fly out of his nose while he was talking."
Another mocked, "Kayleigh tomorrow, probably: "He's so pure, even his boogers are white." #adderall"

Another said, "I thought maybe #Adderall was trending because it and Donald #Trump are the same color."
A user commented, "People think a chunk of adderall flew out of his nose earlier. Watched it a few times - hard to tell. He does notice it and immediately sniff though... click #adderall and there are videos."

Another simply said, "Something flew out of his nose. #TrumpPressConference."
A user said, "That would explain the poor temper, lack of impulse control, junk food, and Adderall."

According to a 2018 Mediaite report, Noel Casler had alleged during a performance that Trump "crushes up his Adderall and he sniffs it because he can’t read, so he gets really nervous when he has to read the cue cards." Recently, Trump had stated both Biden and him should undergo a drug test before the presidential debate. The Hill quoted him telling Laura Ingraham on Fox News, "No. No. I want to take one. I’ll take one, he’ll take one. We should both take a drug test."
