“This Isn’t the Cocaine You’re Looking For”
Not so long ago in a galaxy that’s actually not far away in the slightest, Princess Leia (a.k.a. Carrie Fisher) has come out swinging against the GOP presidential nominee.
Fisher, who is most widely known for her role as Princess Leia in the Star Wars saga, decided to add fuel to the fire that was started during the first presidential debate by former Vermont governor and presidential candidate Howard Dean, in which Dean insinuated that Donald Trump’s constant “sniffling” into the microphone was potentially due to cocaine use.
Dean, upon the original insinuation that Trump was potentially abusing cocaine, stated that the sniffling that was caught by the mic was actually a telltale sign of cocaine users:
“That is actually a signature of people who use cocaine,” said Dean, who is also a doctor.
“I’m not suggesting that Trump does, but I’m suggesting we think about it, because here’s the interesting constellation… he sniffs during the presentation, which is something that users do,” he added.
“[Trump] also has grandiosity, which is something that accompanies that problem… It’s something I think it’d be interesting to ask him and see if he ever had a problem with that.”
Fisher, who has openly acknowledged her past struggles with addiction to cocaine, blasted the GOP nominee in her assertion that Trump is in fact a “coke-head”, citing her own personal expertise to validate her stance.

While Dean ultimately backed down from his stance that Trump was possibly a cocaine user, it appears that Fisher is not preparing to do the same. Were Fisher’s (and Dean’s) assertions that Trump is a cocaine user were to be in fact proven to be true, it would be yet another devastating blow to the Trump campaign, a campaign which is already in free-fall after a video was released last Friday evening showing Trump in 2005 vulgarly referring to his stance on attracting women, going as far to brag that his status and wealth allows him to go and grab women “in the p***y.”
Trump has long insisted he abstains from alcohol and illegal drugs, and there is no physical evidence that he has ever taken part in any use of illegal substances. However, Princess Leia is not convinced.
This author is sure she would likely refer to Trump as, oh, let’s say “a stuck up… half-witted… scruffy-looking… Nerf-herder!”
But I digress.
