Even before Hillary Clinton collapsed at the 9/11 ceremony in New York City, an incident subsequently attributed to pneumonia, there were questions about the Democrat presidential nominee’s health.
Rumors have emerged alleged brain about Parkinson’s disease, seizures, heart disease, brain trauma and other alleged maladies. Clinton suffered a concussion in 2012.
She has experienced several coughing fits on the campaign trail which were captured on video and reportedly cleared her throat about 22 times during her presidential nomination acceptance speech in Philadelphia.
In a campaign visit to the battleground state of Florida on Wednesday, Clinton needed help just to navigate one step.
From The American Mirror:
Hillary Clinton needed a helping hand to trek up a single step during a visit in Florida today. Clinton was outside to greet supporters in Lake Worth when she attempted to stand on a small riser. She needed assistance to get onto it as she could be seen reaching her hand out for a boost or some added steadiness. An aide extended his hand and Clinton held on tightly as she made her way up the 18 inches. He could be seen standing behind her and at one point reached out to grab her waist, perhaps thinking she was about to fall.

Clinton’s personal physician claims that she is fit to serve as president, although neither Clinton nor rival Donald Trump have released their full medical records into the public domain. At one point in the campaign, Trump vowed to do so if Clinton would follow suit.
Although Clinton and Trump are roughly the same age, and neither could be described as slim, the Republican nominee maintains a full schedule of rallies across the country, while Clinton has a light schedule of events. Trump has famously criticized Clinton over lacking the necessary stamina for the job as commander in chief.
After the 9/11 fainting spell, the former secretary of state told CNN’s Anderson Cooper in a telephone interview that she has fainted just twice, as far as she could remember.
