So what’s wrong with Hillary?
When you’ve lost The Washington Post, you know the Clinton campaign has really really come up against a stone wall. I’ve read the Post for years, and ever since Jeff Bezos purchase turned its editorial board into a sycophantic mouthpiece of the Clintons, where all hard news and reporting objectivity has left the building, the newspaper (now there’s an oxymoron) lost me as a regular reader. Which is why, now, when Chris Cillizza, the Post’s political reporting ace, is now headlining, “Hillary Clinton’s health just became a real issue in the presidential campaign,” the coughing attacks are now no longer just coughing attacks.
Earlier today, Secretary Clinton abruptly left the 9/11 commemoration in New York City, because she was “over-heated.” CNN posted this privately shot video from someone standing close to where Secretary Clinton was waiting for her motorcade. It is also shown below:
When watching this video, it certainly looks like more than an over-heated medical episode. Clinton was quickly taken to her daughter, Chelsea’s apartment, where she remained for a while before departing to the Clinton home in Chappaqua. While all of this is happening, the media is reporting that not one reporter was allowed to follow the motorcade or ask questions.
As we speculate about what’s really going on with Mrs. Clinton’s health, we return to the time we saw Hillary wearing glasses while testifying before the House Benghazi committee. During this hearing, Mrs. Clinton was wearing some very distinctive glasses which are explained by New York ophthalmologist, Dr. Marc Werner, during his interview with Fox News.
Whether Secretary Clinton is truly ill, or suffering from a campaign trail fatigue, she is 68 years old and suffered a serious concussion a few years back. She is running for the highest office in the land, and it is incumbent upon her and her campaign to answer all serious questions about her health. Failure to do so, in so many words, may mean that perhaps the spotlight needs to shine more on Tim Kaine. It would not be the first time in US history when a vice-president has to take over the reins of govenment.
Hillary needs to make some tough decisions in the next few days. This wouldn’t be the first time that Hillary’s ambition to become the first female president comes before doing what’s right for the country. If her decision is to remain mum, and treat this as nothing unusual, then she’ll be a welcome addition to her “basket of deplorables.”
