The spin continues in full force after Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton collapsed leaving this morning’s 9/11 memorial ceremony. After telling us Hillary was just “overheated” and “feeling great” after retreating to daughter Chelsea’s NYC apartment, now this:

So, yeah, apparently they’re just now telling us Hillary was diagnosed with pneumonia — on Friday. Really???! That they think we are naive enough to believe this is simply stunning.As Politico reports:
Hillary Clinton was diagnosed with pneumonia on Friday, her doctor said in a statement Sunday after the Democratic nominee left a 9/11 memorial ceremony due to what her campaign said was overheating.
“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,” her doctor, Lisa Bardack, said. “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.”
Bardack examined Clinton at her home in Chappaqua after she returned from New York City on Sunday afternoon.
We went from “overheated” but then “feeling great” shortly thereafter to a diagnosis of pneumonia a few hours later?
If indeed Hillary was diagnosed Friday with pneumonia, why didn’t they disclose that hours ago when they issued the statement on her health — or, better yet, Friday when the presidential nominee was diagnosed? And why the shroud of secrecy from the press about her condition and how she was being treated after this morning’s incident?
Suppose they’ll try to blame the “basket of deplorables” comment on pneumonia as well.
Gosh, the transparency with this campaign is overwhelming — and one can only imagine how much better (worse) it would become were she to become president.
It appears that, just as she did with Benghazi, her email scandal — and too many other scandals to name — Hillary Clinton and her minions will just keep trotting out new lie after new lie about her health to cover up the last one. They’ll try to bury us with obfuscation that makes our heads spin, so we just give up trying.
But we won’t let them.
And, just like Benghazi, Hillary won’t let her supposed “pneumonia” get in the way of her fundraising. She’s scheduled to be in California for a series of fundraisers on Monday and Tuesday.
