WATCH: Stephen Colbert weighs in on Donald Trump's "sniffles" during the presidential debate – Sep 26, 2016

During Monday night’s first presidential debate, Republican candidate Donald Trump drew a lot of attention with constant “sniffles” while talking. On The Late Show‘s live post-debate special, host Stephen Colbert mocked him, saying it sounded like he was “fighting off a cold with cocaine.”

“He sounded like the coked-up best man in the bathroom at a wedding — ‘You guys, I got it, I know how we can fix the entire economy. Let’s buy a boat,'” Colbert quipped after playing a montage of Trump sniffling.
