Did Donald Trump Jr. cry during a recent appearance on Fox News? That’s what users online believe after footage of the interview went viral over the weekend.

In the clip, Trump Jr. is discussing Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his son Hunter when his voice seemingly begins to shake.

“He seems like he is about to cry,” @Acyn tweeted of the clip.

Others appeared puzzled by the video as well, questioning whether Trump Jr. was about to have a breakdown on air.

“Is he crying?????” @HeidiOCanada asked.

Many felt convinced that Trump Jr. was on the verge of tears over concerns that his father would not win reelection.

“He is crying,” @baginski_lisa said. “They must know it’s over and they are looking at facing and paying for their corruption.”

But most users attributed Trump Jr.’s wavering tone to unproven but widespread rumors of cocaine abuse.

“This is the cocaine come down,” @dame_keep said.

The drug-related commentary was endless, with many cracking jokes that Trump Jr.’s cocaine supply was in jeopardy.

“You’d cry too if you knew the cocaine was about to run out,” @realEDdoc quipped.

While the commentary on Trump Jr.’s Fox News appearance is all speculation, the president’s son is no stranger to such accusations.

The internet also claimed that Trump Jr. was on drugs last week after another interview on Fox News. Users pointed to what they believed were odd jaw movements as evidence of Trump Jr.’s substance abuse issues.

Trump Jr. was also accused of having “cocaine eyes” during the Republican National Convention in August after users alleged that his pupils appeared dilated.
