In the days before Hillary Clinton collapsed after being rushed out of a 9/11 memorial service due to cough/dehydration/pneumonia (take your pick), she tweeted the following message:
That’s a bit unfortunate, or perhaps, prophetic depending on your perspective.
People magazine is reporting that a campaign source told them “Everyone’s been sick” at Clinton’s campaign headquarters in Brooklyn in the weeks leading up to her pneumonia diagnosis:
At least half a dozen senior staff were felled, including campaign manager Robby Mook. Two top advisers even needed emergency medical treatment, the source says. One top adviser diagnosed at a Brooklyn urgent-care center with a respiratory infection was being treated with antibiotics in the days before Clinton's diagnosis. Another top adviser was taken by ambulance to the ER by ambulance after collapsing from what turned out to be severe dehydration, the source said.
Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon told CNN the Democratic nominee “is not contagious.” That’s good because shortly after she emerged from her daughter Chelsea’s apartment in New York City where she was recovering, she hugged a little girl, exposing her to the deadly disease that supposedly sent some on her campaign staff to the ER:
The media are busy deflecting, while Democrats are brushing off all concerns as conspiracy theories, as scripted in this handy guide on how to deflect from a Clinton scandal published at The Federalist:
Republicans: Hillary looks sick.
Democrats: Conspiracy theorists!
R: You know, she’s coughing all the time.
D: Conspiracy theorists!
R: Hillary just passed out.
D: She has allergies and some heat exhaustion. It’s one of the hottest days ever!
R: It was 77 and breezy.
D: Are you suggesting that women have a different, weaker physiology than men?
R: No, I’m suggesting maybe she’s sicker than we think.
D: Misogynist … oh, the campaign says she has a little walking pneumonia. Now we know.
R: Why not say that in the first place?
D: She’s a warrior, amirite?
R: So this 70-year-old lady ill with a contagious sickness is hugging little girls and attending fundraisers?
D: She’s 69 and 7 months, you liar.
D: She’s a hero to elderly women.
R: Is she contagious?
D: Of course not.
R: If it’s no big deal, why is she canceling campaign events?
D: Actually, this dangerous, contagious sickness has infected a bunch of senior staffers who may now die — that’s how bad it was.
R: Seems serious. If Hillary lied about this, is it possible she is lying again?
D: Conspiracy theorists!
