Wednesday evening, former interim Democratic National Committee Chair Donna Brazile recounted to Fox News’s Tucker Carlson the tale of Hillary Clinton fainting on the fifteenth anniversary of 9/11.
The Tucker Carlson Tonight host questioned the Clinton-DNC whistleblower over Hillary’s knee-buckling at a critical time in her run for office against the formidable and endlessly energetic Donald J. Trump. Carlson referenced Brazile’s consideration of replacing the infinitely corrupt former White House wife with Barack Obama’s next-in-command, Joe Biden, as discussed in her new book, Hacked:
“So you have this scene in the book that’s been much remarked upon, where Hillary’s really sick. You say she’s overworked, and she’s got a bronchial infection, maybe pneumonia. And she’s so sick that you have this moment where you think, ‘Maybe we need to replace her; maybe she won’t be able to continue.’ And that’s the point at which you said, ‘Maybe the Vice President would be a good replacement.’”
Brazile’s recent revelation that she at one point considered replacing Hillary — describing her campaign as reeking of the “odor of failure” — was quite a denigration, compounding the author’s clobbering of Clinton. Most notably, Hacked detrimentally exposed the crooked candidate’s rigging of the 2016 Democratic nomination. Questioning Brazile over potentially replacing the one-time Secretary of State, Carlson continued:
“That’s such a big deal, that it was striking when I read that. I thought, ‘Here, there are a thousand reporters covering this campaign, and not one of them picked up anything like that, that the candidate’s health was that bad? That she was being considered maybe not able to finish?’ Do you think reporters knew that? How could they not know that?”
“Well let me just tell you, I had a lot of reporters were calling my office, calling my home, texting me, sending me emails. In fact, there was a reporter that I mentioned that broke the story to me that she had fainted. And I immediately called up to Brooklyn and I tried to reach people on the road with her to find out if this was a rumor, as you well know, with the Russian meddling in our campaign, and yes, it happened. There were so many rumors that you had to debunk, and so by the time I saw the video, when the video went viral, you can imagine what was happening within the Democratic Party, what was happening inside of the inner circles.”
“Oh, I remember,” Tucker remarked. “‘Everything’s fine!’”
“Every five to seven minutes,” Brazile said. “Hillary is a friend. I cared about her health. I cared about her campaign, but the last thing I want, I wanted to know how she was doing. I wanted to know if she was okay.”
Clinton was certainly not okay. She was sick, but her campaign was even more ill. She couldn’t escape the plaguing malady of her past. The American people couldn’t ignore the pre-existing condition of her scandal-stained history. And in the end, her campaign — like her body on September 11th, 2016 — buckled under the stress of her sick, sick state.
