In a poll of physicians and surgeons across the United States, the majority indicated that they believed that Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton was suffering from serious health issues that would impede her ability to serve as commander in chief.
According to a press release on PR Newswire, an informal poll by the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons showed that 71 percent of the 250 respondents believed that Hillary Clinton’s possible health problems were “serious — could be disqualifying for the position of president of the U.S.”
Another 20 percent of respondents said that Hillary’s putative health problems were “likely overblown, but should be addressed as by full release of medical records.”
And finally, 2.7 percent responded that they were “just a political attack; I have confidence in the letter from her physician and see no cause for concern.”
The letter in question was from Clinton’s physician, Dr. Lisa Bardack, which concluded that “Mrs. Clinton is a healthy female with hypothyroidism and seasonal allergies, on long-term anti-coagulation.”
However, the poll showed that the physicians and surgeons did not share the same rosy outlook presented by Bardack’s letter.
“While more than 81 percent were aware of her history of a concussion, only 59 percent were aware of the cerebral sinus thrombosis, and 52 percent of the history of deep venous thrombosis,” the report read.
“More than 78 percent said the health concerns had received ‘not enough emphasis’ in the media, and only 2.7 percent that there had been ‘too much emphasis.’”
Symptoms of cerebral venous thrombosis, a condition that was revealed after her 2012 concussion and for which she still receives treatment, “may include headache, abnormal vision, any of the symptoms of stroke such as weakness of the face and limbs on one side of the body, and seizures.”
“Both physicians and other voters think that health concerns are relevant when choosing a presidential candidate,” AAPS executive director Jane M. Orient said in a statement. “However, more than 40 percent of physician respondents were unaware of the cerebral sinus thrombosis, and the vast majority of voters were not aware of all of Clinton’s problems or their potential serious long-term implications for cognitive function.”
Indeed, a poll from Gravis Marketing showed that 49 percent of voters weren’t aware of the “well documented major health issues that Hillary Clinton has,” including the cerebral venous thrombosis.
Comments were added by 88 of the doctors included in the survey, including one that noted “the public interest will ALWAYS override either privacy rights or rights of self-determination in the case of a presidential candidate.”
Unfortunately for America, the public interest has never overridden the personal interest of Hillary Clinton. For five decades, Hillary Clinton has believed that public service really means the service of Hillary Clinton at the expense of the public.
