Twitter quickly grew concerned with Trump's health.

I hope Trump releases his sniffle-related medical records #debatenight

People couldn't focus on anything else.

Trump's sniffle count is up to seven at 9:13. #DebateNight #Debates

Please, please, please have Clinton silently hand Trump a tissue. #debatenight

Twitter asked...

...and Twitter delivered.

I'll make more jobs. Way more *SNIFF* jobs. I'm the *SNIFF* best at making jobs. In the tissue industry. #debate #Debates2016

More than once.

On Tuesday morning, Trump said he didn't have the sniffles and a "very bad" microphone had most likely picked up his breathing.
