HILLARY CLINTON: Well, I just didn’t think it was going to be that big a deal.
US Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton gets in her vehicle while leaving her daughter’s apartment building after resting on September 11, 2016, in NY. She was diagnosed with the lung infection on Friday. She told Cooper she hoped to get back on the trail in the next couple days.
Both Clinton and her Republican opponent Donald Trump have pledged to release more of their medical information soon.
Clinton also said during the interview on CNN, that there’s a double standard with the scrutiny over her health issues.
And, you know, I think it’s fair to say, Anderson, that people know more about me than nearly anyone in public life. “So I am unaware of that”. Provocateur Roger Stone on Sunday said that “the hide-and-seek game Hillary is playing with her health must end” and that “the woman is not well – it’s time for her to admit it”.
Discussing the event itself, she explained: “I felt dizzy and I did lose my balance for a minute”.
“I’m surprised the candidates don’t get sicker than they do”, Pikes Peak Dems Executive Director Liz Hershberger said. Once I could cool off.
Later, in a text message to supporters signed “H”, Clinton reiterated that “I’m feeling fine and getting better”. “Obviously, I should have gotten some rest sooner”.
The incident reinvigorated questions about Mrs. Clinton’s heath that have dogged the former secretary of state for months, including speculation that she is hiding a serous medical condition.
Some Democrats were also critical of the Clinton campaign’s handling of the situation.
Trump said the group he brought onstage represented his supporters throughout the nation as he tried to keep attention focused on the comment Clinton made Friday night that half of Trump supporters were a “basket of deplorables” who held racist, sexist and other views that are contrary to the nation’s values.
In his first public comments since Clinton abruptly left Sunday’s Ground Zero ceremony, an unusually restrained Trump offered her his wishes for a rapid recovery.
One of the many reasons why Donald Trump lost a lot of his initial support is because so many of his statements have been genuinely worrying. It’s also true Trump has also earned valid criticisms for his own campaign’s lack of transparency.
The Clinton campaign revealed that she was diagnosed Friday with pneumonia after video surfaces of Mrs. Clinton’s collapse. “What’s the cure for an unhealthy penchant for privacy that repeatedly creates unnecessary problems?” asked David Axelrod, a former White House aide to Barack Obama.
The poll of 1,910 responses shows a lack of trust in the presidential candidate, a worrying sign for her campaign with just two weeks to go before the first presidential debate in NY and two months until the election.
Earlier in an interview with CBS News, Bill Clinton said his wife has had similar incidents of dehydration and dizziness in the past.
Are you satisfied by Trump’s first effort to address health questions, the four-paragraph open letter from his doctor last December saying the NY billionaire would be “the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency”? But the letter did not mention what medicine Trump might be taking or other details typically included in such disclosures.
