Actress Carrie Fisher, known worldwide for her role as Princess Leia in the "Star Wars" series, died Monday, but her biting tweets against Republican Donald Trump during the 2016 election will live on as perhaps one of the campaign's more entertaining features.
Most memorably, Fisher created news by saying on Twitter in October that she was "absolutely" sure Trump, who kept sniffling during a debate, was addicted to cocaine.
"I'm an expert & ABSOLUTELY," she said in a tweet to a user who asked if Trump was possibly a "coke head."
Fisher later walked back the claim and said Trump's sniffling was likely a case of "nerves."
But the actress's tweets on Trump are legion.
In August of last year, just weeks after Trump launched his then-unlikely campaign, Fisher, who publicly admitted to struggling with depression and addiction, tweeted a photo of a dog named Gary. "Gary is 2 tongues like Trump is 2 lips, [ex]cept Gary's tongue is kind and USEFUL [and] Trump's lips are busy kissing his own smug ASS," the tweet said.
After the leaked 2005 video showing Trump talk crudely about how he comes on to women, Fisher tweeted, "So you have to be attractive to be groped uninvited by Trump," she said. "Finally! A reason to want to be ugly!"

Again on the suggestion that Trump was a drug addict, she tweeted in mid-October, "I thought Trump couldn't [be] on cocaine because he's overweight, but a friend suggested he might ordinarily weigh much more ..."
