Hillary Clinton was forced to leave a 9-11 memorial at Ground Zero in Manhattan on Sunday. The Democratic nominee for president was seen being held up by staffers as she nearly collapsed while leaving the memorial early due to “not feeling well.”
Clinton campaign spokesman Nick Merrill released this statement shortly after,
“Secretary Clinton attended the September 11th Commemoration Ceremony for just an hour and thirty minutes this morning to pay her respects and greet some of the families of the fallen. During the ceremony, she felt overheated so departed to go to her daughter’s apartment, and is feeling much better.”
Later, Hillary’s campaign revealed that she had been diagnosed with pneumonia on Friday, and was advised by her doctor to “rest.”
Hillary’s near collapse at the 9-11 memorial (See video below), and concerns over her health have caused her campaign to cancel her scheduled “high-end” fundraisers in California, along with her appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show.
After Hillary was helped by aides from the memorial, she went to her daughter Chelsea Clinton’s apartment where she was attended to by her personal physician.
The Associated Press reported:
“After leaving her daughter’s, Clinton was driven to her home in Chappaqua, New York, and made no public appearances. She later called off plans to fly to California on Monday morning for two days of fundraising, campaign events and an appearance on Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show.”
The Democratic nominee has been laser focused on fundraising as opposed to holding public campaign events, which raises some serious questions about the state of her health. There is no way Hillary would cancel fundraisers in cash-rich, Dem controlled California unless something was very much amiss regarding her health.
Aside from canceling her two day trip to California, fundraisers there, and her appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, some reporters are saying more campaign events, specifically one slated for Las Vegas on Wednesday, could be canceled as well.
Hillary’s near collapse on Sunday, along with many other health related concerns has some journalists saying that Hillary will in-fact be replaced as the top person on the ticket.
David Shuster, an Emmy award-winning journalist who anchored for Al Jazeera America and MSNBC posted a Tweet shortly after Hillary’s episode. The Tweet read,
“Clarification from dem operatives @HillaryClinton pneumonia: Expect emergency DNC meeting to CONSIDER replacement.”

“She won’t withdraw unless he has to. But anxious Democrats will be so worried if she fails to be able to campaign and her health escalates as an issue that they might bring unbearable pressure on her to step aside.”
Even leftist filmmaker Michael Moore chimed in saying that “pneumonia is serious.” He even blamed Hillary’s campaign for keeping the truth hidden from the American people.
Well, pneumonia. That’s serious. Campaign kept it hidden Fri/Sat/Sun. No wonder the crazies get traction. Dems are pros at losing elections.

Whether Hillary is actually replaced as the Democratic candidate, or if she is merely forced to cancel more campaign and fundraising events to focus on her health, her near collapse on Sunday will surely dog her campaign for the remaining weeks of the election.
Questions regarding Mrs. Clinton’s ability to realistically function as Commander-in-Chief will follow her wherever she goes now.
Dems will spin & lie more than Soviet propagandists of old, but all of this may very well equate to Donald Trump handily winning the presidency of the United States of America.
I think I speak for most of us that, a Trump presidency would be the best thing to happen to this country in a long time. We want America to be made “Great Again.” And Hillary isn’t the one who would bring that about.
