It was confirmed over the weekend that Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton did indeed have some health issues that she was dealing with, despite repeated prior protestations to the contrary from her campaign and her allies in the liberal media.
Following Clinton’s near collapse while abruptly exiting early from the 9/11 memorial service, her campaign offered a couple of excuses for the incident, including that she had been diagnosed with pneumonia and had been dehydrated from antibiotics, resulting in her becoming “overheated.”
But judging by what former President Bill Clinton told “CBS This Morning” host Charlie Rose on Monday, this isn’t the first time such an incident has occurred, nor will it be the last, if Clinton chooses not to follow the medical advice she has been receiving, the Washington Examiner reported.
In response to Rose asking how his wife was doing, Clinton replied, “She’s doing fine. She was even better last night before she went to sleep. She had a good night’s sleep. She just got dehydrated yesterday.”
“Is that what happened?” Rose asked. “She just got dehydrated? Because when you look at that collapse, that video that was taken, you wonder if it’s not more serious than dehydration.”
“Well, if it is, then it’s a mystery to me and all of her doctors,” Clinton stated. “Frequently” — and there he stumbled — “Rarely, but on more than one occasion, over the last many, many years, the same sort of thing’s happened to her when she got severely dehydrated, and she’s worked like a demon, as you know, as secretary of state, as a senator, and in the year since …”
Rose broke in at that point, commiserating with Clinton: “But more importantly, she’s on a grueling campaign. And you know what that’s like, and she’s older than you were when you ran.”
“And she had two-and-a-half hard days before the day when she got dizzy,” Clinton agreed. “Today she made a decision, which I think was correct, to cancel her campaign day to take one more day to rest.”
Rose asked, “Is it possible she’ll be away for weeks from the campaign trail?”
“No, not a shot. I’ll be lucky to hold her back another day,” Clinton replied with a smile.
Hillary Clinton’s campaign team might be trying to put forth the narrative that nothing is wrong with their boss and that Sunday’s incident was merely a one-off event, a terrible confluence of disparate parts that combined to render her weak and dizzy for a moment.
But Bill Clinton just revealed that his wife has suffered incidents like this in the past, completely undercutting the campaign’s reassurances and exposing that she has ongoing health issues that are possibly even getting worse.
It will be interesting to see how much time Hillary Clinton takes off from campaigning. The best guess is probably not very long, though her swift return to the campaign trail will most likely be due to the ever-tightening race with her opponent and have less to do with her being healthy enough to re-engage.
