With less than two months until the General Election, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump didn’t have to pressure his Democratic opponent to answer tough questions about her health.
A video of Hillary Clinton’s departure from the 9/11 event at Ground Zero in Manhattan, posted by Twitter user Zdenek Gazda, shows her clearly stumbling, with Secret Service agents helping her into the van in the motorcade, CNN reported. The Clinton camp initially reported that the 68-year old was “overheated” before the nominee’s physician confirmed it was pneumonia.
Prior to this public incident, and a recent coughing spree she had on the campaign trail, Clinton narrowly escaped criticism of her health. Her health has repeatedly been scrutinized, despite supporters excusing a concussion she endured a few years ago, as well as previous fainting spells, saying that the Democratic front runner has an exhaustive schedule. Talk of her health was fading slightly until her Sunday episode was caught on camera.
After Clinton’s dramatic exit at the 15th anniversary of remembering 9/11, both Democrats and Republicans alike are taking a hard look at the next potential President of the United States, considering whether she is fit or not fit to run a nation.
Is Hillary Clinton’s health a campaign issue?
