“I’m feeling great!’
So claims Hillary Clinton.
In case you missed it, here’s a video of the Clinton Collapse
Some of us have been asserting Clinton is ill for some time. Others took a different tack:
Chris Cilliza at WaPo
Can we just stop talking about Hillary Clinton’s health now?
Tara Golshan at Vox:
Here’s how we know the bonkers conspiracy theory about Hillary Clinton’s health is catching on
It’s a vast right wing conspiracy, says James Hamblin at The Atlantic.
It’s allergies, says Hillary.
She got overheated, says the campaign.
It is finally disclosed- Clinton has The Walking Pneumonia and the Boogie Woogie Flu.
But I am telling you this is not the full story by any means. Clinton has been hacking away since January at least. Here is a timeline of her 2016 episodes.
Lisa Bardack, Clinton’s physician, asserts that Clinton is “recovering nicely” at her home in Chappaqua, NY. Then again, Bardack also assured us that Clinton is perfectly healthy save for hypothyroidism. This has prompted Jackie Mason to question whether Bardack is a physician or a plumber.
“Well, the way she lies all the time every time she talks she can’t seem to talk without lying. So if she says she has a letter from a doctor the chances are the letter is from a plumber and probably there was no doctor involved and no doctor ever saw her. She knows other liars but I don’t think she knows any doctors. So if the doctor saw her, he would know that she is not only in bad shape physically but mentally she is in ever worse shape. Anybody who can’t talk without lying shouldn’t see a doctor; she should see a psychiatrist.”
For certain, we know that Clinton is very susceptible to dehydration and fainting – that is, if you believe what’s being doled out. It was identified as the cause of her keeling over and suffering a blood clot in her brain in 2012.
Curiously, knowing she had a potentially communicable disease did stop Clinton from hugging a child.
I guarantee you we do not know the full extent of her frailties and given her history of mendacity we may not learn them until she collapses for the final time. For sure, she does not have the stamina for the office of President of the United States.
