During an interview on Fox News on Wednesday, Donald Trump Jr. vehemently denied that his big Republican National Convention speech was fueled by snorting cocaine, blaming his glassy eyes and sweaty forehead on the room’s lighting conditions.
“I guess there must have been something with the lighting, but they started doing this trending thing,” he said, before bellowing the mock headline: “DONALD TRUMP JR.’S ON COCAINE.”
The president’s son went on to repeat a joke he’d made on Twitter a day earlier and apparently believed to be very funny, saying that people accusing him of taking coke must have him “confused” with Joe Biden’s son Hunter, who has previously spoken openly about living with drug addiction.
