Washington Post: Trump’s Attacks On Hillary’s (Poor) Health Sickening Or Something

Ruth Marcus is Very Upset over anyone daring to question the health of Hillary Clinton, because no one should question the Queen, and it makes her sick. Especially since Ruth drags in the sexxxxxism card

Trump’s Sickening attacks on Clinton’s health

Donald Trump — he who likes to fly home at night in the comfort of his own plane to sleep in the comfort of his own bed — is at it again on the question of Hillary Clinton’s stamina, or alleged lack thereof.

“To defeat crime and radical Islamic terrorism in our country, to win trade in our country, you need tremendous physical and mental strength and stamina,” he said in Wisconsin. “Hillary Clinton doesn’t have that strength and stamina.”

And a day earlier, in case you missed it, “Importantly, she also lacks the mental and physical stamina to take on ISIS, and all the many adversaries we face.”

It’s obvious what’s going on here. The strength-stamina combo is a gender-age twofer, a double whack at Clinton for the price of one. Strength, what men have and women lack; stamina, with its intimations of go-all-night virility. Clinton, in this depiction, is both a weak girl and a dried-up old crone.

Or, it could be a: a valid concern due to all the falls, the inability to walk up stairs, wearing long jackets to cover the adult diapers (as some have hintimated), special glasses to deal with double vision, a possible brain aneurysm, strange head ticks, etc., or b: this is a campaign, and the majority of the media will not help in attacking Clinton, since she’s a Democrat, so, Trump and his forces have to do it.

No matter that Trump is a year and four months older — and, for that matter, endures a far less rigorous schedule. In Trump World, what counts is the attack, not the truth.

But, Trump is not having those same potential health problems. Hillary is. Ruth’s apoplexy continues for a while, ending with

But the Trump & Co. attack on Clinton’s health, with its undertones of ageism and sexism, has no basis in reality, and no place in a presidential campaign. It would be tempting to say this is beneath even Trump, except that it isn’t.

No place, huh? How about all the sexist attacks on Sarah Palin, for one? How about all the age related attacks on John McCain? The demands for more and more health records from McCain, while asking for nothing from Obama? The “just wondering” attacks on McCain’s eligibility to serve because he was born in the Panama Canal zone, and a totally unfounded report that he had an affair? These came from the media, liberal pundits, and Democrats.

How about the attacks on George Bush for his past alcoholism, wondering whether he could still serve? Unfounded attacks that his wife was doing cocaine? These came from the media, liberal pundits, and Democrats.

Mitt Romney was actually in very good health, so, he was attacked for his Mormonism. And how many articles were spent on or mentioned the dog on the roof or a stupid haircutting incident 60 years ago? How many went after “magic underwear”?

Obama didn’t need to personally go after McCain or Romney. Kerry didn’t need to go after Bush. Their media allies did it for them, just as they go after Trump today. Hillary’s health is a valid concern. If she had an R after her name, Ruth and the rest of the media would be deeply concerned and digging deep. Remember, the Washington Post, along with many media outlets, sent huge numbers of reporters to Alaska to comb through Palin’s emails, while also asking them to be crowd-sourced. Yet, not only is there no interest in investigating Hillary’s health, they are defending her.

If Trump was taking lots of time off the campaign trail, had an email from employees saying he was “easily confused”, others that discussed his napping and inability to get out of bed, if he was falling, etc and so on, you can bet that vast numbers of reporters would be detailed to investigate, and this would be front page news with lots of “wondering” stories, as well as opinion pieces.

    Donald Trump is a bit older than Hillary Clinton, but he’s clearly in better health, as anyone with eyes can see, as long as they have a shred of honesty, a condition which would, admittedly, exclude most liberals.

    There’s clearly something wrong with Mrs Clinton, which the left very much want to cover up until after the election. And Jeffrey would vote for her even if she was drooling all over herself.

    It would be a form of karmic justice if Mrs Clinton’s real medical records, which should have been digitized under the provisions of the HITECH Act, part of the porkulus bill she supported, were hacked and published.

    Me? I’m guessing that she has bovine spongiform encephalopathy.

    She also has pseudologia fantastica and mythomania which may explain her pathological lying. No wait,it just comes natural to her as a crooked politician.

    It’s been said that Trump has tertiary syphilis that he caught raping pre-teens in the Caribbean.

    All we know of Trump’s health is from the fake letter from a “doctor” and our observations of his public actions. It’s been said that the verbiage in the fake letter was in Trump’s own cadence.

    His carotenosis is a concern, as is his tortured psyche. His thin skin, hypersensitivity to criticism, tendency to lash out without thinking are part of the syndrome associated with male microphallus.

    Be honest for a second. Trump’s personal attacks on his opponents are just part of his schtick. Little Marco, Low energy Jeb etc. It’s to build him up at the expense of others.

    Trump will beat up ISIS himself. LOL

    one problem that I see with Trump’s attack is that he is criticizing Clinton for basically sharing the weaknesses of the only age group that consistently supports the GOP
    2/3 of women over 40 have bladder control problems at least once each month
    I am surprised that a ladies man like yourself is unaware of that
    In any case snide attacks like that will only further hurt Trump
    It is clear that personal attacks on Hillary just haven’t worked so far, maybe he oughht to try going back to THE WALL?

  5. Jeffery says:

    But an investigation by The New York Times into the financial maze of Mr. Trump’s real estate holdings in the United States reveals that companies he owns have at least $650 million in debt — twice the amount than can be gleaned from public filings he has made as part of his bid for the White House. The Times’s inquiry also found that Mr. Trump’s fortunes depend deeply on a wide array of financial backers, including one he has cited in attacks during his campaign.

    For example, an office building on Avenue of the Americas in Manhattan, of which Mr. Trump is part owner, carries a $950 million loan. Among the lenders: the Bank of China, one of the largest banks in a country that Mr. Trump has railed against as an economic foe of the United States, and Goldman Sachs, a financial institution he has said controls Hillary Clinton, the Democratic nominee, after it paid her $675,000 in speaking fees.

    Trump personally owes millions to the Bank of China and Goldman Sachs. His campaign manager former campaign manager is likely to defect to Russia to avoid American prison.

    No wonder Trump is hiding his tax returns. He may be deeply in debt to other nations besides China.

    Trump once said, “When you owe the bank $100,000 you don’t sleep at night. when you owe the bank $100,000,000 they don’t sleep at night.
