The opening night of the Republican National Convention didn’t feature LGBTQ people – let alone issues of importance to the community – but it started buzz online.
Donald Trump Jr. and Kimberly Guilfoyle have been accused of doing drugs before giving their speeches.
I’m not saying the Trump family had a bad night, but “adderall” and “coked up” are both now trending.

Guilfoyle, who is Trump Jr.’s girlfriend and a top fundraiser for Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign, shouted her way through her speech.
“This is the first time in my life I’ve had to turn down the volume on C-SPAN,” Late Show host Stephen Colbert joked after the event ended. “God, I’m glad we already had our kids because I think if I was too close to the TV, I might have been sterilized by that. Oh my God. That was a tough act to follow or watch.”
I heard Kim Guilfoyle’s speech and my TV’s not even on

It was so 'strong' that Cocaine, Don Jr, Kimberly Guilfoyle, Fidel Castro, Erdogan, Coked, and Loch Ness were all trending and Faux Spews cut away from it.
Not sure that's the 'uplifiting, positive' message you were going for. pic.twitter.com/vMgHW0KqH9

But Trump Jr. earned the most attention for his jerky manic speech given with bloodshot watery eyes during his pre-taped speech. The immediate reaction was that he was high on drugs like cocaine.
“One word: Visene,” actor Debra Messing tweeted with the hashtag #DonnieDrugs.

“Many people” are saying Junior was coked up when he gave his taped speech for his daddy at the RNC.
