In The Bag Journalists Getting Concerned Over Hillary’s Health

I’m sure you’ve heard the news and seen the video of Hillary collapsing. Many leftists were Very Upset by the use of the word “faint”, so, let’s say she collapsed. We were told that she felt unwell, that she was overheated (despite not being a particularly warm day), and that she had pneumonia. Which should probably make all her big moneyed donors happy, being that she attended fundraisers Friday. What’s the over/under on her being contagious?

We’re told that she wobbled a bit. Does this look like wobbling?

The reverse angle is even worse. We’ve been told that she was thrown in the vehicle like a sack of meat. Thankfully, there were citizens with video, because the press wasn’t even told she was bolting. And, while there are some serious hot takes by the leftist media, and some major ass covering for Clinton by some in the media, others are getting a bit concerned. Such as Chris Cillizza of the Washington Post

Hillary Clinton’s health just became a real issue in the presidential campaign

Hillary Clinton falling ill Sunday morning at a memorial service on the 15th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks will catapult questions about her health from the ranks of conservative conspiracy theory to perhaps the central debate in the presidential race over the coming days.

“Secretary Clinton attended the September 11th Commemoration Ceremony for just an hour and thirty minutes this morning to pay her respects and greet some of the families of the fallen,” spokesman Nick Merrill said. “During the ceremony, she felt overheated, so departed to go to her daughter’s apartment and is feeling much better.”

What that statement leaves out is that a) it came 90 minutes after Clinton left the ceremony b) reporters — or even a reporter — were not allowed to follow her and c) the temperature in New York City at the time of Clinton’s overheating was in the low 80s. (A heat wave over the eastern United States broke last night/this morning.) (snip)

Clinton may well be totally fine — and I certainly hope she is. But we are 58 days away from choosing the person who will lead the country for the next four years, and she is one of the two candidates with a real chance of winning. Taking the Clinton team’s word for it on her health — in light of the episode on Sunday morning — is no  longer enough. Reasonable people can — and will —  have real questions about her health.

There’s quite a bit more in this admission from Cillizza, which gets to the very heart of the issue: Hillary doesn’t seem healthy. She may be healthy, and it could all be just anecdotal. Optics matter. Consider that McCain sure appeared healthy in 2008, yet, the press was musing and “just wondering” and demanding more and more information on his health. Heck, they wanted Palin’s health records in full, too boot.

The LA Times’ in the bag Melissa Batchelor Warnke is also concerned

Hillary Clinton’s worrisome wobble

….

Worse, Clinton’s shaky early departure from a Sept. 11 commemoration ceremony in New York reinforced ugly speculation by Trump’s team that she is suffering from some kind of debilitating illness, possibly linked to the concussion she suffered late in her tenure as secretary of State. The clean bill of health she’d received from her physician this year did nothing to quiet those rumors.

Clinton didn’t faint at Sunday morning’s event, exactly; the video I saw showed her wobbling into her van, shifting awkwardly from foot to foot. By any measure, she did not look well. Having experienced fainting spells for the last year that have turned out to be neither meaningful, preventable nor attributable to any particular cause, I’ve learned how confusing such spells can be. “You might drink more water,” doctors have yawned in my direction. Still, I’m not running for president.

She would have face-planted if people hadn’t held her up. Not a wobble. She collapsed Most of the rest is just a whine about Trump, because, despite early protestations from Ms. Warnke, she’s in the bag. Even she understands that optics matter. And, in today’s social media driven world, people will see those videos. They’ll see the coughing. They won’t take the press’ word that Hillary is fine. They’ll want proof. And, if they don’t get it, if the issue festers, we’ll get things like this

Hillary is already extremely untrusted. When they take 90 minutes to come out with an excuse, even if real, speculation will run rampant. And we’ll get things like this, but Dilbert creator Scott Adams, who says the race for president is (probably) over

You probably wonder if the “overheated” explanation is true – and a non-issue as reported – or an indication of a larger medical condition. I’m blogging to tell you it doesn’t matter. The result is the same.

Here’s why.

If humans were rational creatures, the time and place of Clinton’s “overheating” wouldn’t matter at all. But when it comes to American psychology, there is no more powerful symbol of terrorism and fear than 9-11 . When a would-be Commander-in-Chief withers – literally – in front of our most emotional reminder of an attack on the homeland, we feel unsafe. And safety is our first priority.

Hillary Clinton just became unelectable.

That’s surely a bit over the top, but, what if she has more incidents? People aren’t going to forget this. What if she has a coughing fit during a debate, or some incident? Disappears for a bit? Think that won’t matter?

    Only in the LA Times does “wobble” mean having your slack feet dragged across the pavement

  2. Genericviews says:

    If she says it’s Pneumonia, I must be much worse. I’m going to go with plague. And yes, she is contagious and doesn’t care. Hand that baby over to grandma for some sloppy kisses! Her campaign photo op is more important than the lives of your kids and old people.

  3. drowningpuppies says:

    It was pneumonia just like it was “about a video.”

  4. Hank_M says:

    The MSM isn’t going to be able to gloss over this.

    It’s also relevant the in the 2015 book about the Clintons, Bill is quoted as being worried about her health.

    She should consider dropping out. If she doesn’t, people will now be looking at her very very closely everytime she’s in public, and she isn’t going to be able to hide anything – she’ll hate that.

  5. Here’s the thing: if it is pneumonia, which is being linked to the coughing, well, how long has she had it? Does it keep recurring? Because we documented coughing going back to January. Will the media ask questions about that?

  6. Liam Thomas says:

    With all the swelling I see and puffiness It would seem more like congestive heart failure which of course could lead to pneumonia.

    but what do I know….I just know they are hiding something or else they would 1. release the records and 2. stop shrouding everything she does in secrecy.

  7. Hank_M says:

    Most plausible explanation I’ve seen is Parkinson’s.
    It explains the coughing (swallowing issues), the bug eyes at times, the incessant nodding and the occasional freezing up.

  8. Dana says:

    Question: If Hillary Clinton had a stroke and was completely and apparently irreversibly comatose on October 31, 2016, what percentage of the vote would she win on November 8th?

    …also pointing and waving hi! to imaginary friends.

    Hillary has been exhibiting coughing symptoms for months. Note, that her voice is often hoarse. Now, constantly talking might change her voice, especially with the screeching that she does. But, she likely has symptoms secondary to aspiration. The aspiration will change her voice and predispose her to pneumonia. Note that after being told she had pneumonia, she goes out and hugs a little girl. So much for smarts and thinking of others. Now, I seriously doubt this pneumonia crap. The issue is why is she aspirating (likely night time). If she had a stroke or cerebral injury, then she can have problems with aspiration and hoarse voice. But, she had no reason to be dehydrated as the claim and she did not “stumble”. She went dead weight on her handlers and two strong men could not lift her massive bulk. Before the event, an aid was holding her up. On starting to move, she either had a seizure or loss of consciousness. I would imagine that she is on super doses of meds to cover Parkinson symptoms, if that is the issue and this could have caused some of the problem. As I have said before, she has either seizures of reaction to medications. The sum total is that this woman is not at all healthy and the DNC has no business fostering her on us with the damage she could do as president and sick as she is. Clearly we learned from her period in State that she can not handle the job and that her judgment is very, very poor.

    Donald Jong-un: “When Iran, when they circle our beautiful destroyers with their little boats, and they make gestures at our people that they shouldn’t be allowed to make, they will be shot out of the water.”

    Rudy Giuliani: “Until the war is over, anything is legal.”

    so your okay with Iran threatening our troops in international waters?
