How about the lies, do they ever stop, first it was heat exhaustion, now its pneumonia since friday, do we expect people to believe anything her campaign says. Or because shes a Clinton, is it Gospel?
I have a hard time seeing the 72 hours between the suspicion of pneumonia and the confirmation of the diagnosis as being "lying". According to the campaign they did ask the Doctor to make a public statement and the doctor wanted to confirm the diagnosis before doing so.
I am certain you won't agree...but objectively the lying tag looks like confirmation bias...It gets pretty silly, the transparency standard we hold one candidate to, while the other could be a crack-coc aine addict for all the medical information he has released (as in none but fraudulent letter from fraudulent doc)
Hillary Clinton was headed to an emergency room following her frightening collapse at the Sept. 11 memorial ceremony — but detoured to daughter Chelsea Clinton’s apartment to keep details of her medical treatment under wraps, The Post has learned.
Secret Service protocol called for the Democratic presidential nominee to be rushed to a state-designated Level I Trauma Center in the wake of her Sunday-morning health crisis, sources said. In Manhattan, that would be Bellevue Hospital.
But a campaign operative decided to change course to avoid having Clinton seen by doctors, nurses and other medical workers who could leak details to reporters, according to a source.
In addition, Clinton’s van was supposed to be escorted by an NYPD detail, but the Secret Service whisked her away from Ground Zero before cops could accompany her, another source said.
The former secretary of state had told police officials that she didn’t want the escort at all, but the NYPD overruled that request, the source added.
NYPD Deputy Commissioner John Miller said Clinton’s “early departure was transmitted in real time by the Secret Service to the NYPD.”
“There was no lack of communication, nor diminution of security,” he added.
The campaign initially claimed that Clinton left the 15th annual observance at Ground Zero because she “felt overheated” — before revealing hours later that she was actually suffering from a bout of pneumonia diagnosed Friday.
“Antibiotics can take care of pneumonia,” Axelrod wrote on Twitter. “What’s the cure for an unhealthy penchant for privacy that repeatedly creates unnecessary problems?”

I just listened to the local ABC affiliate say these words again.... "in the video, Hillary Clinton appears to stumble".
Try 'collapsed', A-holes.

Having someone in office who has Parkinsons or a brain injury would not be ideal really, but far worse is to have someone who can't even remember to drink a glass of water and is overcome by "overheating" on a cold day.
Prediction: She'll have more medical issues before the President is announced - it's uncontrollable. From a Public Relations standpoint they are in damage control. I think what we will see is extremely controlled media events, they will be for shorter periods of time and they will be well executed and feel good (i.e more of the cute kids running through SS to give Aunty Hilldawg hugs for the cameras).

BTW, pneumonia is not treated as an isolation case in the hospital, unless it is caused by an antibiotic resistant bacteria. I have never seen it spread to anybody. If it did, entire families would show up to the hospital with it. I have never seen that happen. Pneumonia can be caused by a multitude of microorganisms and viruses. It is simply thriving in the wet environment of the lungs. Most such microorganisms are not highly contagious. It is typically a secondary infection caused by another problem, such as aspiration or a sinus infection that moved into the lungs. The chances of infecting somebody else with pneumonia is extremely low.
