This morning, Rick Leventhal tweeted “BREAKING: law enf source: Hillary Clinton just left 9/11 ceremony w/medical episode, appeared to faint on way into van, helped by security” This isn’t a tweet from someone from the fever swamps. This report is from an accomplished correspondent who has covered everything from hurricanes to wars to campaign events.
If ever there was a morning when a politician would want to raise their public profile, this morning is it. That’s why it’s curious that Hillary is nowhere to be found, not even on Twitter. It’s more than a little justified to question whether Hillary’s health will prevent her from serving a full term at the level that’s required of presidents. At this point, it’s reasonable to question the Team Clinton doctors’ statements that she’s in good health.
If ever there was a person whose word shouldn’t be trusted, it’s Hillary’s. There’s no reason to think that Team Hillary’s medical team hasn’t been corrupted to the point that they’d say whatever she’d want them to say. The MSM is protecting her so it’s up to the RNC and, especially, the Trump campaign to make this a campaign issue. Clearly, Mrs. Clinton’s health is questionable. If ever there was a position that required a person in top physical and mental shape, it’s that of president of the United States, aka POTUS.
Fox News has now posted video of Leventhal’s report of Mrs. Clinton’s fainting spell:
The Democratic presidential nominee appeared to faint on her way into her van and had to be helped by her security, the source said. She was “clearly having some type of medical episode.” After more than an hour of radio silence, Clinton’s campaign issued a statement saying the former Secretary of State “felt overheated.”
“Secretary Clinton attended the September 11th Commemoration Ceremony for just an hour and thirty minutes this morning to pay her respects and greet some of the families of the fallen,” Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill said. “During the ceremony, she felt overheated so departed to go to her daughter’s apartment, and is feeling much better.” But a witness told Fox News that Clinton stumbled off the curb, her “knees buckled” and she lost a shoe as she was helped into a van during her “unexpected early departure.”
Here’s the video of Leventhal’s report:
UPDATE II: Watch this video. That doesn’t look like Mrs. Clinton was overheated. It confirms she fainted.
