On a day of solemn reflection of a major event — memorializing the deaths of Americans on Sept. 11, 2001 by Islamic terrorists — Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton did what she and her husband do best: she “sucked the air out of the room.” (See two videos below)
“Leave it to a malignant narcissist like Hillary Clinton to command all the attention of the news media on a day considered ‘holy’ by many Americans — the anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on U.S. targets,” said former NYC cop Dawson Conyers. “Suddenly it’s not about the men and women who died on that horrible day and it’s not about their loved ones — tears in their eyes — remembering the victims of Islamic radicalism. Nope. It was about Hillary Clinton the alleged criminal running for president feeling a bit sickly,” he said.
According to reports that began to trickle out, Mrs. Clinton appeared to stagger and faint in footage showing her early exit from a 9/11 commemoration ceremony on Sunday. A video of the incident shows how her entourage including the Secret Service agents attempted to conceal her near collapse and rush to get her in her waiting security van.
Although Clinton’s doctors at first said the episode was a result of heat and dehydration, they later claimed it was the onset of pneumonia.
The Democratic presidential nominee fell on her way into her van and had to be helped by her security, according to witnesses and video of her leaving. She was “clearly having some type of medical episode,” a law enforcement source told Fox News, according to Tweets by Fox News reporter Rick Levanthal.
After more than an hour of silence, Clinton’s campaign finally issued a statement saying the former Secretary of State “felt overheated,” and later Sunday afternoon they issued another release blaming the episode on pneumonia and dehydration.
“Secretary Clinton has been experiencing a cough related to allergies,” Dr. Lisa R. Bardack said in the 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.”
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.”
