Lately, a lot of people, including her rival, Donald Trump, started criticizing Hillary Clinton’s health, questioning the Democratic nominee’s ability to run the United States, in case of winning November’s general elections.
Despite her denying any potential health issues and claiming that she’s completely fine, the entire world watched her leaving early this Sunday’s 9/11 memorial ceremony, after losing her balance and had to be helped into a waiting van.
Isn’t it more than just pneumonia?
Like expected, passerby caught the whole moment on video and forcerd Hillary Clinton’s campaign to reveal that the 68-year-old candidate had fallen ill, after being diagnosed with pneumonia, a few days before, says The Washington Post.
“Secretary Clinton has been experiencing a cough related to allergies,” Clinton’s physician Lisa R. Bardack said in a statement. “On Friday, during follow up evaluation of her prolonged cough, she was diagnosed with pneumonia. 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.
Of course, a lot of people are now skeptical, wondering if Hillary Clinton is indeed dealing with pneumonia or something way more serious. There were even some conspiracy theories launched, claiming that the Democrat is now using a body double for her public appearances, as her health condition is very bad.
Hillary is expected to get back to her usual schedule soon
However, her campaign claims that she is now on antibiotics and even though her schedule will be modified, forcing her to appear at less public events, she will soon be back to the regular campaign program.
Last month, Dr. Bardack said in a letter that Hillary Clinton is “in excellent health and fit to serve as president of the United States”.
