It’s much ado about nothing when it comes to Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s health, but that hasn’t stopped the absolutely ridiculous right-wing from latching on to Clinton’s minor and completely explainable situation in New York City as the proof for which they’ve been searching to show she is unfit to be president.
After Clinton had a bit of a coughing fit during a speech the right-wing exploded with finger pointing exclaiming, “See! We told you! She’s dying!” as if they had never coughed a day in their lives. This talking point has followed Clinton for the last week, and she had another incident where she seemingly lost her balance when attempting to get into her chauffeured vehicle. Video of the event shows Clinton attempting to step and her legs wobbling, of which is completely innocent and explainable.
Hillary Clinton’s doctor released a statement, “Secretary Clinton has been experiencing a cough related to allergies. On Friday, during follow-up evaluation of her prolonged cough, she was diagnosed with pneumonia,” her doctor, Lisa Bardack, said. “She was put on antibiotics, and advised to rest and modify her schedule. While at this morning’s event, she became overheated and dehydrated. I have just examined her and she is now re-hydrated and recovering nicely.”

So she was out campaigning while sick, in the hot afternoon heat, and became a bit overwhelmed. So what? Could one ever imagine Trump working while he was sick? No, which is just another reason why individuals should support Clinton’s presidency, as she is clearly willing to go the extra mile even if it means jeopardizing her own short-term health.
