Bill Clinton once again stuck his foot in his mouth when trying to defend his wife’s health and this time it yielded significant consequences. Hillary Clinton collapsed, I repeat collapsed on Sunday morning after a 9/11 ceremony. Reports were she was overheated. Later it was dehydration and then much later it was pneumonia. Whatever it was, the Clinton campaign isn’t playing it straight with the nation.
Bill decided he would help or hurt the situation by adding the tale of how it wasn’t the first time Hillary took a floor plunge but he associated it with hydration. Let me remind everyone; Hillary has not seen a hospital. Correct me if I am wrong but don’t they hospitalize elderly people when the get dehydrated. I went through it with my mom. You can’t just drink water. They do IVs and monitor electrolytes, so you don’t get too much too soon.
This quick turnaround is nothing short of remarkable for a coughing, hacking candidate who can’t recall things when asked by the FBI.
From Washington Examiner:
Former President Bill Clinton said Monday that his wife has fallen before due to dehydration.
Revealing some of her health past for the first time, Clinton told CBS:
“Rarely, on more than one occasion, over the last many, many years, the same sort of thing’s happened to her when she got severely dehydrated.”
Speaking to CBS This Morning co-host Charlie Rose, the former president said Hillary Rodham Clinton is “fine” after her buckling on Sunday and ready to get back on the campaign trail, though aides said it won’t happen for days.
With his typical aw shucks tone, he said, ” I’ll be lucky to hold her back another day.”
The transcript is below from CBS:
BILL CLINTON: She’s doing fine. She was even better last night before she went to sleep. She had a good night’s sleep. She just got dehydrated yesterday.
CHARLIE ROSE: Is that what happened? She just got dehydrated. Because when you look at that collapse, that video that was taken, you wonder if it’s not more serious than dehydration.
BILL CLINTON: Well, if it is then it’s a mystery to me and all of her doctors. Rarely, on more than one occasion, over the last many, many years, the same sort of thing’s happened to her when she got severely dehydrated, and she’s worked like a demon, as you know, as Secretary of State, as a senator, and in the year since.
So what is Bill saying here? Is Bill saying that not only does Hillary not know that “C” stands for in confidential, now she doesn’t have the intelligence to keep herself hydrated! Also, I am proud she loves children and older people so much, but “supergrandma” came out of her daughter’s apartment like Tony the Tiger feeling “great”, and exposes everyone to pneumonia, or maybe they had not decided what fit all her symptoms yet?
These people are literally changing stories and sticking their foot in their mouth, time and time again. America can’t stand it anymore, and when November 8 comes around, we’ll see who has the last laugh.
