There has been speculation that Hillary Clinton was not in good health. There has been a lack of appearances. She has not been on television and was a no show during the flooding in Louisiana. This seemed to be confirmed when she collapsed during a recent rally.
With the admission that the presidential candidate has been suffering from pneumonia, Fox and others have discussed what the DNC would do to replace her if needed. And we have to wonder how long this cover-up has been going on now.
In a leaked email, we find that it has been going on at least a year.
One of the biggest bombshells in the leaked Colin Powell emails is the news that Democratic senator Sheldon Whitehouse informed a Democratic donor that Hillary’s health is so bad that she “could barely climb the podium steps” during an event they both attended.
“Sheldon Whitehouse, who is a huge Clinton supporter, said they were both giving speeches at the same event a few months back and she could barely climb the podium steps,” Democratic financier Jeffery Leeds said in an email discussion with George W. Bush’s former secretary of state.
So, we have a candidate that has been sick or at least struggling physically for a year. Clinton is now suffering from a bout of pneumonia. An illness that Hillary thought necessary to keep from the public. Why?
Is there more to this situation than the campaign is letting on? Is it more than pneumonia? If not what is so serious that they would seek to hide the sickness? Would it not have looked better to say that this pneumonia started as a cold and worsened because of Hillary’s tireless work ethic?
It may be just what they say. But there seems no reason to hide something so small and push Hillary to the point of exhaustion, when coming out with the truth would have served her better. And then there is this report of having no strength to climb the steps.
This looks more serious than they are saying. But what do I know?
