Hillary Clinton Has Pneumonia Now? She's Her Own Conspiracy...
When I left you yesterday, the Hillary Clinton campaign wanted us to believe that she just got a little exhausted from the NYC heat. High 70's and what have you. Now, the following video has emerged of her literally being dragged into a car by her detail. And no, I'm not misusing the word "literally".
So, with their back up against the wall, having denied allegations of health problems for weeks... the campaign wants us to believe she had pneumonia.
The incident seems certain to prompt further scrutiny of Clinton's health and her campaign's transparency. Though, Republican rival Donald Trump was uncharacteristically silent throughout a solemn day marking the 15th anniversary of the September 11 attacks.
Dr. Lisa Bardack said in a statement:
Clinton, 68, was diagnosed on Friday with pneumonia, and "was put on antibiotics, and advised to rest and modify her schedule."
"While at this morning's event, she became overheated and dehydrated. I have just examined her and she is now re-hydrated and recovering nicely," said Bardack, chairman of internal medicine at the Mount Kisco Medical Group.
"...was diagnosed on Friday with pneumonia..."
Let's set aside that her detail responded to her fainting in a way that seemed borderline rehearsed. Almost as if this was standard practice for them. Just another day at the office. This just happened to be the first time it was caught on video.
Hillary Clinton's doctor diagnosed her with pneumonia on Friday. The campaign hid this from the press while she still campaigned all weekend. And now that the truth is out, it's evidence that... you're a sexist and she's a feminist warrior princess.
Ambulatory pneumonia very exhausting. You would have to have an indomitable will & considerable strength just to keep upright. heroic.— Joyce Carol Oates (@Joyce Carol Oates) 1473635778.0
To press lamenting @HillaryClinton's health/transparency: "powering through" illness is what women do: Stoically, every. single. day.— Jennifer Granholm (@Jennifer Granholm) 1473641451.0
If Hillary Clinton wants to know why so many people think there's a conspiracy about her health, it's not because of sexism. It's because of Hillary Clinton herself.
"Mrs. Clinton was diagnosed with walking pneumonia. She took it easy on Saturday, but insisted on attending the 9/11 memorial." If anyone, even an intern (provided she could take a break between sessions with Bill), said those 20 words on Friday, no one would have anything to talk about this morning. Instead, Hillary's campaign chose to hide the truth until there was video evidence verifiably exposing her first excuse as bull-feces.
Here's the deal: Hillary Clinton very likely has pneumonia. That's reasonable to believe. It's also reasonable to believe that her campaign lied about it simply because they didn't know what else to do. Lying is their schtick. Furthering the conspiracy is the mainstream media, who acted like they were following a script... one written to satirize the mainstream media. Let's review the timeline.
First, Fox News was lying!
Then, Fox News was biased because they called it a medical episode, and "ZOMG it was so hot in New York City you guys!!"
Then, when it was proven to have actually been a medical episode. "Look how brave and strong Hillary is to even be upright, you guys!"
Finally, the mainstream media acts less concerned with Hillary lying to them than how "shocking it is Donald Trump hasn't commented yet!"
Here's some friendly advice. If Hillary Clinton doesn't want people spread conspiracies about her lying, she shouldn't be a lying liar who lies.
