What’s the old saying? “Where there’s smoke, there’s a fire?” This likely holds true for two very different situations that the Clinton campaign seems to be involved in. The first is the ongoing (and years’ long) investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email servers and their connection to the Clinton Foundation. The second, and the one we’ll focus on here, has to do with Hillary Clinton’s obviously fragile health. The FBI investigation revitalized some concerns over Clinton’s mental well-being when it was noted that she had much difficulty remembering the events of recent years, due in part to surviving a blood clot and to a concussion she suffered. However, there have been other concerns with her odd behaviors on the campaign trail, and most visibly, the harsh coughing fits that she seems to be suffering more and more often.
On Labor Day Mrs. Clinton was in Cleveland, Ohio campaigning when she suffered her worst coughing fit of the campaign, forcing her to stop several times during her speech, and keeping her voice noticeably off for her entire appearance. Clinton tried to play off the attack by saying, “Every time I think about Trump I get allergic.”
Later in the day, Hillary was traveling away from Cleveland and speaking to reporters on her plane when she fell into another spasm of coughing. This time the incident was so bad that she was forced to walk away for several minutes to regain her composure. Ironically enough, her coughing began as she criticized Donald Trump for making comments that could be construed as “pro-Putin”. I’m not sure Hillary Clinton should be judging anyone else’s relationship with Putin after her “Russian Reset” has helped to create a world where Russia is more powerful and influential than it has been in 35 years… but I’m not on her campaign team. Here’s what she was saying as her second coughing attack of the day began.
“He seems to have this bizarre attraction to dictators, including Putin. He won’t tell us where he owes $650 million. There’s a lot of rumors about that. And he has made it clear that he doesn’t particularly care if Putin and the intelligence services attack American institutions… Can I have some water…?”
Now, I’m no doctor. And I don’t play one on TV, either… but Hillary Clinton has been suffering these coughing fits for months now. It’s not like she’s got some cold and had a few days of tough health… no, she’s been suffering from these attacks for almost a year now. (The first highly publicized episode took place in October of 2015 before the House Select Committee on Benghazi.) Doesn’t this point to a larger problem that the American voters should be very worried about?
