Hillary Clinton had a stumble this weekend that left some of her most ardent supporters wondering if something is seriously wrong with her. In the midst of a 9/11 memorial ceremony in New York Sunday morning, Hillary left with her Secret Service entourage. Two video angles show Hillary being held up as a van door is opened for her. The moment the person holding her arm tries to move her forward, Hillary's legs buckle before she completely collapses, nearly falling to the pavement before those around her catch her and pull her into the van.
Hillary was then taken to her daughter Chelsea's apartment in Chappaqua, according to the Washington Post. She reappeared a while later looking much healthier.
According to Bradd Jaffy of NBC Nightly News, Hillary's campaign released the following statement from Hillary's personal physician:
"Secretary Clinton has been experiencing a cough related to allergies. 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."
The statement did little to pacify those convinced that Hillary has been suffering from long-term health issues, and the fact that her campaign didn't mention any pneumonia until now feed into the perception that Hillary consistently hides her health struggles. The UK Daily Mail also pointed out that Hillary hugged a young girl after leaving Chelsea's apartment despite reportedly having a contagious infection.
Asked about Sunday's stumble, Donald Trump replied, "I think it's an issue. In fact ... this last week I took a physical and .... when the numbers come in I'll be releasing very, very specific numbers," according to Reuters.
According to Fox News, he also said, “Something’s going on, but I just hope she gets well and gets back on the trail.”
