According to CNN’s reporting, Hillary Clinton has been examined -at home- by her personal physician, Lisa Bardack, and has been diagnosed with “pneumonia”; which is also being used as a current reasoning for her cough.
The diagnosis carries with it instructions for extended rest, medication to include antibiotics, and she will again be removed from ongoing campaigning.
New York […] “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,” Dr. Lisa R. Bardack said in a statement obtained by Time magazine.
“She was put on antibiotics, and 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 wrote. (read more)
If this diagnosis and treatment course (ie. stay out of the public etc.) seems a little too convenient to you – there is understandable reasoning for skepticism and cynicism.
Dr. Lisa Bardack conducting an evaluation today:
Almost everyone has noted how little campaigning Clinton has done in the past few months. Hillary Clinton barely held any campaign events in August, and only a few events in the past two weeks. Her campaign schedule has been the lightest of any presidential candidate in the past 30 years.
Those of you who followed the post September 11th 2012 events will well remember Secretary Clinton’s team initially said she had “a cold”, then “a severe cold”. Days later the cold was given as a reason for her passing out. Another day passed and a “concussion” was attributed to her passing out. Several more days later and, with a visible hospital stay, “blood clots” were given as the reason for her medical care.
In 2012 a cold became a flu, that became a slip and fall, that became a concussion, that became blood clots, that demanded months of care far away from public review.
Researchers became cynics quickly upon evaluating Clintons events closely at the time and speculated if the real issue was “a stroke”, which held lingering effects often noted when she did reappear in 2014 for her book tour.
An inability of Hillary Clinton to effective use normal motor skill function, a seemingly obvious lack of visual acuity, and the consistent need for physical aid (specifically pointing her and guiding her) was noted for almost two years post 2012 medical episode.
The issues have seemingly only worsened in 2015 and 2016.
