She’s probably releasing all these medical records the same way she released all her emails. And we all know how that has played out. Hillary, if you were smart, you wouldn’t play with your health like this. You can pay off politicians, you can’t pay off your own body.
Today the Democratic presidential nominee — who released additional medical information from her doctor Wednesday saying a recent physical “was normal and she is in excellent mental condition” — will hold a campaign event in Greensboro, North Carolina, and then attend the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute dinner in Washington, D.C.
Clinton’s return to the trail is sure to come with additional scrutiny and questions regarding her overall health.
Donald Trump, who has thus far remained quiet about his opponent’s recent diagnosis, has questioned Clinton’s health and “stamina” throughout the campaign. And his campaign is unlikely to let up.
“Why in the world did Hillary Clinton lie to everyone and conceal such an important fact for two days, saying she was overheated and dehydrated and then, of course, hours and hours later after, unfortunately, her health became the biggest trending story of the day, not the 9/11 fallen, why wait all those hours?” Trump’s campaign manager Kellyanne Conway said during an interview on MSNBC this week.
“If this is about transparency and medical records and health conditions, then why was she so furtive in the business of concealing here?” Conway added.
Earlier this week Trump had stayed mum about Clinton’s health, saying he hopes she recovers. But last night at a rally in Ohio, he said she was “lying in bed” and questioned her stamina, saying, “I don’t know folks. You think Hillary would be able to stand up here for an hour and do this?”
On Sunday, Clinton, 68, left early from a 9/11 memorial ceremony in New York City, where she was seen struggling to walk as she was assisted by aides into her van.
Her campaign first released a statement saying she “felt overheated” at the outdoor event. But after video of the incident surfaced online, the campaign released another statement from her longtime doctor revealing that Clinton, who had been battling a cough the preceding week, was diagnosed with pneumonia on Friday.
Thanks to everyone who’s reached out with well wishes! I’m feeling fine and getting better. -H
