THIS STORY ABOUT HILLARY’S HEALTH makes sense….There’s certainly something odd going on, isn’t there? And this isn’t written by a Conservative, it’s Rick Klein for ABC!
Hillary waited at the curb for her van, secret service and staff all around, one woman holding her up by Hillary’s left arm to apparently keep her steady, then she stepped forward and bobbed and weaved and nearly went down…….that could be from a humid, hot day and dehydration. No doubt about it.
But, you add all the other things we’ve seen in the last few months and begin to wonder. I believe this wouldn’t have been such a big deal had her campaign come clean on past health issues. Yesterday, Hillary emerged after about 1 1/2 hours in Chelsea’s apartment (you can bet her doctor met her there) and WAVED so happily, said what a beautiful day it was, and off she went, as if the media wasn’t there because she’d nearly fainted and they wanted to know more than her telling them about the weather!?
That appearance in front of Chelsea’s building was such a metaphor for the whole Hillary story……pose, make light of, smile big, get them on your side.
Then we hear she’d been told she had pneumonia on Friday. I can look at that and think “that’s some woman, going on with antibiotics, not stopping her schedule, she’s a tough cookie, that’s a good thing”, but the dishonesty in her health issues smacks of something other than ‘atta girl’! (Because, believe me, her schedule is tough, and I’m not that many years behind her…I’d be tired, so would you!)
Why can’t this woman emerge onto the street after supposedly ‘playing with Chelsea’s children’ (when she has pneumonia?) and say “Thanks for being here to check on me…I should have realized I couldn’t make today’s event, I was diagnosed with bacterial pneumonia Friday and should have known better and I need to go home and to bed…see you back on the campaign trail as soon as I can!”
And GAD….by the time I wrote this post, in a very rare show of restraint, Trump’s said NOTHING….let’s see how that goes!
