On a day when Hillary Clinton proclaimed the media biased (against her), labeling the GOP as “sad, misogynistic sexists,” a survey of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) found that nearly 71% of physicians thought concerns about Hillary Clinton’s health are “serious – could be disqualifying for the position of President.”
With her lead over Trump tumbling to six-week lows following a poor performance at last night’s “commander-in-chief” forum, and a press conference focused on what she was not asked (or didn’t answer)…
Hillary Clinton’s campaign has called “sexism” on the GOP. As The Hill reports,
The Democratic nominee, along with top surrogates and allies, has seized on Trump’s recent comment that Clinton does not have a “presidential look,” using the comment to depict him as sexist.
The former secretary of State also laid into Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus for his tweet that she looked “angry” during an MSNBC presidential forum.
Clinton didn’t rule out sexism when asked if she was being treated differently in the political race because she is a woman.
“I’m going to let all of you ponder that last question,” the first female presidential nominee replied with a grin at a press conference.
“I think there will be a lot of Ph.D. theses and popular journalism writing on that subject for years to come. I don’t take my advice and I don’t take anything seriously that comes from the RNC.”
Chelsea Clinton also waded into the debate on Thursday, criticizing Trump’s remarks about a “presidential look.”
“Everyone can see that as the sad, misogynistic, sexist rhetoric that I hoped we had moved beyond in the 21st century,” the former first lady’s daughter said.
This isn’t the first time accusations of sexism have bubbled up during the campaign.
She is much worse health wise than we are being told. The smoke screen of puenomia is not accurate. Her symptoms are more aligned with Parkinson’s disease. She is in no condition to continue as the democrat nominee….
Over 70 percent of doctors who smoke, smoke Camels. And then we have “Tyler’s” chart, which is as much of a fantasy as his name.
@Greg: Medicine is science and you have supported your outlandish defense of Anthropogenic global warming by using consensus of polled scientists instead of real scientific processes. Why is this different?
The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons is a conservative/libertarian political organization for doctors, not a non-political medical organization. It was founded specifically to “fight socialized medicine and to fight the government takeover of medicine.” Their journal supports creationism over evolution. They would eliminate Medicare.
Their opinion about Clinton’s illness is as reliable as the opinion of doctors who smoked tobacco was about tobacco’s effect on health. That is, you shouldn’t trust them any farther than you could throw them.
@Greg: nice try, but you lose. Check out who the 97%ers were that you quote so often. You are at least a fraud if not something more despicable.
The AAPS has only 4,000 members. There are 854,698 practicing doctors in the United States. Your “71 percent” represents the opinion of less than 1/2 of 1 percent of all doctors, and they are those who are on the political right to begin with.
So, their opinions are not only politically biased, but statistically meaningless. That is a fact.
I realize, of course, that Trump supporters don’t give a rat’s ass about facts. They’ve bought into a fantasy, which they hope to force onto everybody else in November. The problem is that even if Trump is elected, it will still be a fantasy.
The consequences of believing in it will be very effing real, however, and those least likely to live in a world of facts will also be hit the hardest by those consequences. I have little sympathy for those who bring disaster on themselves after they’ve been repeatedly warned about it.
@Greg: And all of those doctors are scientists according to your calculations. Your 97% of scientists supporting AGW is even less than 1/2 of 1% yet you state it as a meaningful statistic. You fraud!
The context of the AAPS that you either don’t know, or don’t want to admit is the group developed from physicians (like myself) who were so sickened by the leftist political warping of the AMA, to which less than 20% of US physicians belong at present.
You do know the AMA makes the lion’s share of it’s income from the monopoly on medical coding, and not membership dues, right?
You speak of the importance of “facts”, while your leftist bretheren ludicrously claim that “men can menstruate”?
No one should be pretending to accurately diagnose Hillary Clinton based on the information available from media coverage.
In any event, Over 70% Of US Doctors Surveyed Say Hillary’s Health Concerns Are “Serious, Possibly Disqualifying” is a highly and intentionally deceptive statement, because the particular group of doctors surveyed are strongly biased against a Hillary Clinton presidency.
Trump can only be elected by way of deception. His entire candidacy is based on deception. He won the republican nomination by deception and he’s taking the same approach now. The entire outcome hinges on whether or not a majority of American voters are smart enough to figure that out.
What media coverage? There is a gag order in place issued by her campaign to the media.
Do you even realize the penultimate lack of self-awareness and absolute self-parody of attempting to defend Hillary by characterizing her ctitics for alleged DECEPTION?
Or are you so gullible that you accept the ridiculous lie that her debilitation is caused by pneumonia and “not drinking enough water”?
She needs to withdraw and allow Kaine to run and i hope Kaine gets trounced
Yes he is….
@Greg: Your lefty buddies predict the cause of global warming on less data! at least you are consistent in your confusion.
@July 4th American, #11:
If you watched the media outlets you complain about so often, you would know that coverage of the question regarding Clinton’s health has been very high profile. It has had far more attention than Trump’s refusal to release his tax returns, for example, or his apparent cluelessness about the geopolitical ambitions of Vladimir Putin. It’s gotten far more attention than the fact that the DNC has been targeted yet again by Russian hackers, or Trump’s claim three days ago that any Russian interference in the U.S. presidential election is extremely unlikely, and just a rumor being spread by democrats.
Meanwhile, in the real world:
@Greg: The media has to cover Hillary one way or another, Greg.
Her latest book just flopped.
Want to read a pack of lies? Buy that book. Nobody else is.
The media is happy to pull away from Hillary’s email problems and pay-for-play problems.
Talking about her health might garner her a few sympathy votes.
What’s really funny is how the media tries to find Trump, who is a hale and healthy man working 6 days a week, as unhealthy simply by virtue of his age.
Now that’s funny.
@Nanny G, #17:
I don’t recall having heard any health issues being raised in televised media about Donald Trump. The most I’ve heard is the opinion that both candidates should be obliged to make public their general health histories. Like tax records, the status of a candidate’s health is something voters have a right to know about.
Hillary Clinton, today, September 15, 2016, at the 39th Annual Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute Public Policy Conference; apparently not quite so enfeebled or off her game as some people would like to believe.
