Hillary Clinton is sick. There has been speculation about her health for nearly a year.
Yesterday, Hillary fainted due to dehydration caused by pneumonia at a 9/11 memorial service. Or at least that what her doctors say. Either way, I wish her a speedy recovery.
There has been continued speculation about Hillary’s health. Many people are saying that Hillary is not really suffering from pneumonia and that she’s really suffering from something more serious.
It’s not just the usual pro-Trump blogs either, an op-ed speculating about Hillary’s health appeared in The Hill today.
In 2012, while Secretary of State, Clinton fainted and struck her head so hard she suffered a concussion. She then had to cancel an appearance before the House Foreign Affairs Committee until she had recovered sufficiently.
Clinton’s campaign, at first, went into full spin control mode, assuring all of us that her sudden departure from the 9/11 ceremony signified nothing, and that she was fine. She was simply overheated and went to her daughter’s apartment to rest and cool down.
None of that explained why, on a relatively cool morning after a fairly brief period at an event, Clinton was rushed from the scene. None of that explained why she had to be half-carried into her vehicle, why reporters traveling with her were not allowed to follow her when she departed, or why it then took her campaign staff a full hour and a half to provide any update on her condition.
What all the facts suggested strongly is that this was not, by any stretch of the imagination, a minor incident. Clinton was rushed from the scene, because her condition was serious and so concerned her staff that they had no other option than to move her immediately. No press was allowed to follow, because what they would have seen would likely have killed Mrs. Clinton’s chance of ever being President. She was taken to her daughter’s apartment, because taking her to a hospital would have meant public exposure of a serious health issue. No statement was made for 90 minutes, because it was that long before her staff knew what was happening.
It wasn’t until much later in the day that the pneumonia diagnosis was released by the campaign. But, even that information doesn’t completely answer all questions. Clinton and her supporters have dismissed such questions about her health and her stamina as the stuff of conspiracy theorists for years. That cover story may have just gone up in smoke.
Now the writer of the piece, Charles S. Faddis, is not a doctor. He’s speculating like nearly everyone else is.
The point is that Hillary Clinton would not be in this predicament if she didn’t have a reputation of being a liar. The reason why we’re continuing to have people speculating about Hillary’s health is because she’s dishonest. The American people know she is never forthright about anything.
If the Clinton campaign wants to stop speculation about her health, maybe they should be honest with the American people for once.
