It’s been awhile since you’ve heard a story about Hillary’s health, hasn’t it?
I’d honestly doubted she’d be able to get through her ninety-minute debate with Donald Trump without at least clearing her throat, but she managed to make it through. She did have a coughing fit at a rally on Saturday, however. According to Google trends, interest in Hillary’s health has tanked like a rock since peaking following her 9/11 fainting episode.
Many people may have forgotten about Hillary’s health by now, but Barack Obama hasn’t. According to the Daily Mail: President Obama is so concerned about Hillary Clinton’s health that he recently offered to arrange a secret medical checkup for her at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.
Hillary declined the offer because she feared the media would find out about her Walter Reed visit and learn the truth about her medical condition—that she is suffering from arrhythmia (an abnormal heart beat), a leaking heart valve, chronic low blood pressure, insufficient blood flow, a tendency to form life-threatening blood clots, and troubling side effects from her medications.Ed Klein – one of Hillary Clinton’s fiercest critics – revealed new details about the presidential candidate’s health exclusively with DailyMail.com Klein claims that President Barack Obama was so concerned about Clinton’s health that he offered to set up secret medical checkups for her, but she declined his offer in hopes of keeping her health issues out of the public sight Hillary has arranged her own secret medical visits to the New York-Presbyterian Hospital, where she arrives through a private entrance out of public sight and where she can rely on her doctors’ discretion not to speak to the media.
Her doctors have prescribed Coumadin (a blood thinner) and a beta blocker to treat her arrhythmia and heart-valve problem. However, these medications have the side effects of making her drowsy and tired, and lowering her blood pressure, leading to frequent bouts of light-headedness and fainting spells.
Perhaps this is all nonsense that Klein is spewing to promote his new book on Hillary – but we still haven’t seen her medical records. She dismisses concerns over her health as mere conspiracies, but she could prove them to be conspiracies today if she wanted to. She hasn’t, and it’s hard not to suspect there’s a reason why she hasn’t.
