The internet can't stop talking about Trump's sniffles during the debate

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton took the stage for the first presidential debate on Monday night to battle for the future of the United States, but the first thing the internet erupted over had nothing to do with what they said.

While Clinton attacked Trump during the early moments of the debate for what she called "Trumped-up trickle down," all the internet could talk about is what was seemingly trickling down Trump's nose.

The GOP nominee seemed to sniffle repeatedly, sparking a huge reaction online immediately.

See some of the wildest reactions:
