The question of Hillary Clinton’s health has been the subject of much commentary mostly from conservative news sources and blogs. Liberals generally don’t talk about it, because they don’t want to admit the fact that there is something wrong with Hillary.
And while Hillary’s physician released a predictable statement that the Democratic nominee is in “excellent physical condition,” is “fit to serve as President,” and whose health problems don’t extend beyond “hypothyroidism and seasonal allergies,” she and her campaign refuse to say anything about her recent health episodes, and they won’t release her medical records.
In recent years, Hillary Clinton has had to deal with falls, a concussion, blood clots, coughing fits, and other ailments. She was seen in a recently-circulated photo being assisted up a few stair steps by two men, one on each of her arms. In addition, another picture shows one of her security personnel carrying a diazepam pen – a medical device for those who experience seizures.
These events – along with many others – have raised concern among voters that the Democratic nominee may not in fact be physically fit to serve as President.
Now, critics are claiming that those who bring up Hillary’s health issues are nothing more than conspiracy theorists. From Real Clear Politics:
“Let me be clear,” [CNN host Brian] Stelter said. “That was reckless speculation by Sean Hannity. All of it… Her doctors say she is now physically fit to be president.”
“Conspiracy theories are so much more interesting than the truth,” Stelter said. “But the last time I checked, Fox still has the word news in its name.”
Conservative writer Mike Cernovich, in an article on his website Friday, cited a “board-certified anesthesiologist with 36 years of experience,” who diagnosed Hillary Clinton with Parkinson’s Disease.
Whatever the case is with Hillary’s health, it won’t matter to her voters. Even if her physician released a statement saying that Hillary had two months to live, people would still vote for her, and she might win.
