Hillary’s health rumors have gone into overdrive, as the Clinton camp and her mainstream media posse try to rebut speculation the 69-year-old grandma is too sick to handle the rigors of the presidency.
In the latest stunt, Hillary Clinton appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” where she tried to refute rumors she may be suffering from post-concussion brain damage by opening a pre-opened jar of pickles (conveniently missing its vacuum seal) on live TV.
“Here, take my pulse while I’m talking to you,” Clinton joked to Kimmel. “Make sure I’m alive.”
When asked about the widespread rumors about her health, the former secretary of state quipped: “It’s part of the wacky strategy, just say all these crazy things and maybe someone will believe you.”
Pro-Clinton media outlets like CNN and MSNBC have furiously dismissed reports questioning Hillary’s health as a right-wing conspiracy.
But questions linger after several noted physicians — including world-renowned brain surgeon Dr. Ben Carson — called on Clinton to release her full medical records in light of her 2012 concussion and advanced age. Carson has asked the same of Donald Trump, 70.
“The presidency is not a 9-to-5 job,” Dr. Carson told Fox News. “It is extraordinarily grueling. There’s no way we should even consider [electing someone as president] without having a look at [medical] records.”
Dr. Drew Pinsky, a board-certified internist and nationally recognized drug addiction specialist, said Clinton may have suffered brain damage after her 2012 concussion (see video).
Dr. Pinsky said he and a colleague were shocked by the outdated medical treatment Hillary has been receiving for her health problems, which include hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid), deep vein thrombosis and multiple blood clots.
“We were gravely concerned not just about her health, but her health care,” said Dr. Drew, who is not a Donald Trump supporter.
A February 2016 photo that shows Hillary being unable to climb a set of stairs by herself has added more fuel to the “Hillary’s health” fire.
The photo — combined with Clinton’s documented history of uncontrollable coughing fits, falls, hypothyroidism, lifetime need for prescription blood thinners, blurred vision, and blood clots — paint an alarming picture of Hillary’s health.
Clinton suffered a concussion in 2012 after falling and hitting her head and still suffers from hypothyroidism (which weakens energy and stamina).
Last week, photos of Hillary constantly sitting on stools popped up all over social media, launching the viral Twitter hashtag #HillarysStools.
The scuttlebutt started after Twitter users noticed Clinton always sits on a stool during her brief rallies, as TheImproper has reported.
Clinton’s camp obviously noticed #HillarysStools, as she campaigned without her stool the day after the hashtag became the No. 1 trending topic on Twitter.
Hillary then rested for several days while Donald Trump flew to Louisiana to meet with flood victims and then attended a rally that same day in a different state.
Trump has since attended fundraisers and rallies every day while Hillary went on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” for a 10-minute appearance, during which she sat the whole time.
It’s unclear why Hillary Clinton sits so often, since she suffers from deep vein thrombosis, according to her own doctor, Lisa Bardack.
Too much sitting exacerbates deep vein thrombosis, a serious condition that occurs when a blood clot forms in a vein.
Hillary has had three blood clots in recent years: A blood clot in her brain in 2013, and two in her leg: in 2000 and 1998, Celebrity Health Fitness has reported.
Mainstream media outlets such as MSNBC and CNN (which critics have dubbed “Clinton News Network”) have categorically dismissed concerns over Hillary’s health as conspiracy theories, even though their pundits — who have no expertise in psychology or psychiatry — routinely question Trump‘s mental health.
Mainstream media pundits have also decried the concerns over Hillary’s health as sexist, even though similar questions were raised in 2008 concerning Senator John McCain. At the time, mainstream media led the charge to have McCain release his medical records (which he did).
In a 2015 letter, Clinton’s doctor Lisa Bardack revealed Hillary suffers from hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid gland), symptoms of which include chronic fatigue, lethargy, memory problems and depression.
Donald Trump recently said Hillary “lacks the mental and physical stamina to take on ISIS.”
Hillary often doesn’t do rallies on consecutive days, let alone two in one day like Trump frequently does.
Moreover, Clinton has not held a press conference since Dec. 4, 2015. That is unprecedented for someone running to be the most powerful person on Earth.
Biographer Ed Klein, former editor-in-chief of the New York Times Magazine, said Hillary suffers from exhaustion, insomnia, depression, hand tremors and blinding headaches.
Insiders told Klein that Clinton is terrified of getting another blood clot.
“There were incidents on the campaign trail when she felt faint and nearly swooned,” Klein wrote in his 2015 book, Unlikeable: The Problem with Hillary. “Those incidents were kept secret.”
Repeated bouts of insomnia have “sapped her energy,” a source told Klein, a former editor at Newsweek. “She is exhausted and depressed a lot of the time.”
Ed Klein’s extensive research also indicates Hillary Clinton is temperamentally unfit to be president because she’s a pathological liar, as evidenced by her e-mail scandals, Benghazi fallout and pay-to-play Clinton Foundation controversy.
“Some observers compare Hillary to Lady Macbeth, whose vaulting ambition led to her downfall,” Klein wrote in his forthcoming book, Guilty as Sin. “She lies even when she doesn’t have to.”
