Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s hypocrisy is showing again. Aside from flat-out denials and veiled threats from her campaign, she has refused to address growing concerns about her health, but has had no qualms about questioning the health of other world leaders in the past.
In 2009, Clinton questioned the mental health of then-Argentinian president Cristina Kirchner and asked U.S. diplomats to investigate whether she was taking medication to help her calm down, The U.K. Guardian reported.
The former secretary of state was concerned that Kirchner was volatile, emotional and suffering from “nerves and anxiety,” according to a cable sent to the American embassy in Buenos Aires in 2009.
“How does stress affect her behavior toward advisers and/or her decision-making? What steps does Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner or her advisers/handlers take in helping her deal with stress? Is she taking any medications?” the cable asked. Another issue that interested Clinton was how Kirchner calmed down when she was stressed out.
Talk about hypocritical — and just plain nosy.
These questions were a prime example of how Clinton expects to know private details about someone’s life and mental condition, but refuses to discuss any details about her own health — which sometimes seems to be getting worse by the day.
Can you imagine anyone asking Clinton how stress affects her decision making or what steps she takes to deal with stress? Liberals would blow a gasket, screaming sexism.
However, this is the way things are (and always have been) with Clinton. She expects to be held to a different set of standards than everyone else, and the mainstream media happily obliges.
Meanwhile, we still have the issue of Clinton’s health, which is apparently off the table for discussion.
Presidential candidates should be willing to disclose some information about their health with voters — especially when the matter has become such a serious issue, as Clinton’s has.
