Howard Dean tries to make himself relevant and fails miserably. He’s now taking heat from both the Right AND the Left for the tweet he posted after the debate.
Check out Howard Dean’s tweet:
Notice Trump sniffing all the time. Coke user?
— Howard Dean (@GovHowardDean) September 27, 2016
That speculative tweet is even more despicable coming from a man with a medical degree.
Herman Caine was on Fox and Friends:
Howard Dean’s speculation that Donald Trump’s sniffles during Monday night’s debate could be related to cocaine use is just another example of Hillary Clinton’s backers throwing “stuff up on the wall to see what sticks,” former presidential candidate Herman Cain said Wednesday.
“How can Mr. ‘I Have a Scream’ criticize somebody with a sniffle?” Cain told Fox News “Fox & Friends,” referring to a scream that the former Vermont governor made during a fiery campaign speech. The scream, combined with the shouting, are widely blamed with dooming Dean’s presidential hopes.
“Here’s the other thing that’s going on,” Cain told the program. “They are so desperate that they throw stuff up on the wall to see what sticks. That’s just another thing that, they do it all the time. He threw it out there. He didn’t make a declarative statement. He just wants to plant some doubt in people’s minds.”
Monday night, during the debate, Dean tweeted his accusation. On Tuesday, Dean, who is a physician, told MSNBC that it’s unlikely Trump, at 70, has a cocaine problem, but he wouldn’t rule it out, either.
But such name-calling won’t work, said Cain.
“The ‘basket of deplorables’ that Hillary talked about, they’re getting stronger and stronger and stronger every time Hillary name-calls or every time some Hillary supporters try to call names,” said Cain, who ran for office in 2012.

Caine wasn’t the only one to comment. Obama’s Presidential Campaign Chief strategizer, David Axelrod, had something to say, too:
“My reaction, that was outrageous,” Obama’s former campaign strategist said in an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer. “He, like Donald Trump, has refused to apologize for an outrageous statement. He really should.”
…“There are plenty of ways and valid reasons to attack and critique Donald Trump, but that was a really — a really outrageous tweet,” Axelrod said. “And, you know, I don’t think Howard Dean has done anything since the great scream in 2004 quite like this. He ought to pull that back.”

Apparently, there are some places that are too dark for even David Axelrod.
I just lost a bet.
