#1 And then we have the Huff Post weighing in... Hillary’s Pneumonia: The Media’s Lowest Moment by ThirstyMan 12.09.2016 19:25


A 68-year-old woman with pneumonia still kept a schedule that most of us wouldn’t make it through. That’s not weak. That’s actually tough as hell.

So, Hillary Clinton has been campaigning with pneumonia for a bit. Today, she finally gave in to it and had a near-fainting episode, at a remembrance ceremony for 9/11.

Unfortunate, but understandable, and nothing too alarming.

Yet, for most of the day, that is not how it was portrayed. FOX News was first out of the gate, with what actually was the most objective ― and correct ― report.

Correspondent Rick Leventhal merely reported that Secretary Clinton had a “medical episode” and had trouble getting into her car, when she left the ceremony early. Her campaign then said it was due to overheating.

Cue the jackals.

“Hillary Clinton’s health just became a real issue in the presidential campaign,” Chris Cillizza of the Washington Post breathlessly predicted.

Alarms from Politico!

“Hillary Clinton’s health – long the obsession of conspiracy theorists – emerged Sunday as a legitimate campaign issue after Clinton nearly swooned and stumbled at a Sept. 11 commemoration, underscoring the sense that that summer’s sure-thing candidate is teetering at the worst possible moment,” the inside-D.C. paper decreed.

“Nearly swooned and stumbled! Legitimate campaign issue!”

Even the venerable Tom Brokaw got into the act.

Hillary “should Go To A Hospital And See A Neurologist,” said the former anchor of NBC News.

Not even a smiling Hillary Clinton, stepping out of her daughter’s apartment, apparently well, would sate them. The speculation about her health went on and on.

What was Hillary doing? Apparently seeing her doctor, to make sure that they had a very up-to-date diagnosis to give to the press. And that examination led to this statement from her physician.

Yes. It turns out that, for at least a few days, Hillary Clinton has been campaigning with pneumonia.

A 68-year-old woman, with pneumonia, still kept a schedule that most of us wouldn’t make it through, flying here and there, holding multiple events and briefings a day.

That’s not weak. That’s actually strong and tough as hell.

and snip!!!
