Democrat strategist David Axelrod, who was instrumental in getting President Obama elected, thinks Hillary Clinton should consider backing out of Wednesday’s debate now that Donald Trump has asked for both candidates to be drug tested.
Drug testing?!? You have to wonder if @HillaryClinton will/should reconsider next debate, given the depths to which this has sunk.

“I think we should take a drug test prior to the debate,” Trump proposed to a crowd in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.
Some Democrats, starting with Howard Dean, suggested that Trump might have been on cocaine at the previous two debates because he sniffled. The GOP presidential nominee said he’s willing to prove himself clean but he thinks his opponent might have something to hide.

“A lot of things are going on folks,” Trump said. “I think she’s actually getting pumped up if you want to know the truth.”
“She’s getting pumped up. You understand?” he continued.
“You know maybe, we’re like athletes. I beat 17 governors and senators, I beat all these people, we’re like athletes. Hillary beat Bernie, although it looks like Bernie got a little bit of a bad deal if you look at the WikiLeaks. But we’re like athletes,” Trump said. “Athletes, they make them take a drug test. I think we should take a drug test prior to the debate.”
Many on social media thought the idea of drug testing the candidates was a fantastic idea.
