Hillary’s Personal Doctor Revealed She Has Pneumonia
So the campaign lied the other day when they said it was allergies… Now they are saying she has pneumonia.. What illness will she have next?
Hillary Clinton’s personal doctor revealed on Sunday that the Democratic candidate was diagnosed with pneumonia on Friday, hours after Clinton drew attention for abruptly leaving a 9/11 memorial event at Ground Zero and was seen on video apparently being assisted getting into a van.
Dr. Lisa Bardack, Clinton’s personal doctor, said in a statement released by the campaign that the candidate “has been experiencing a cough related to allergies,” and that she was diagnosed with pneumonia on Friday “during follow up evaluation of her prolonged cough.”
Clinton was being treated with antibiotics and had been “advised to rest and modify her schedule,” the doctor said.
Reiterating the campaign’s earlier statement, the doctor said that Clinton left the 9/11 memorial event because, “she became overheated and dehydrated.”
“She is now re-hydrated and recovering nicely,” the Bardack said, saying that she had recently examined her.
The episode comes as her main rival, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, has attempted to call Clinton’s health into question, claiming that she “lacks the mental and physical stamina to take on ISIS” and that she has had to leave the campaign trail often to sleep. His supporters have made similar claims.
The Clinton campaign has dismissed these claims as “deranged conspiracy theories.”
After the Democratic candidate departed the 9/11 memorial event on Sunday morning, her campaign released a statement saying that she attended the ceremony, “for just an hour and thirty minutes this morning to pay her respects and greet some of the families of the fallen. During the ceremony, she felt overheated so departed to go to her daughter’s apartment, and is feeling much better.”
According to the National Weather Service, around the time that Clinton was attending the event, conditions in New York City were partly cloudy with an air temperature of 79º Fahrenheit and a heat index of 82º.
The campaign has not commented specifically on a video taken by an audience member at the ceremony that appears to show Clinton being assisted as she got into her campaign’s van.
Later in the day, outside of Chelsea Clinton’s apartment in Manhattan, where the media had stationed itself, Clinton came outside onto the sidewalk and said, “I’m feeling great. It’s a beautiful day in New York.”
