Is Hillary Clinton in good health? Is she healthy enough for the Oval Office? There’s growing concern over Hillary Clinton’s health after several videos, photos and comments appeared online.There’s also rumored speculation that the media is downplaying Hillary Clinton’s health concerns.
One video making rounds has been dubbed the “Hillary Clinton Seizure Video.” Conspiracy theorists have slowed the video speed to watch the apparent seizure in slow motion. For many, the video is undeniable proof that Hillary Clinton is in no condition to be president.
The possible seizure video isn’t the only reason people are concerned about the 68-year-old Democratic nominee’s health. A photo recently surfaced showing Hillary Clinton climbing stairs with assistance. Is the photo recent or old? According to CNN, the photo is from a campaign stop in February. Hillary reportedly slipped and was helped up. This is in contrast to those who say Clinton is old, frail and has difficulty walking alone.
Those who believe Hillary Clinton is in ill health, are calling for her medical records to be made public. They also contend there is a media blackout surrounding the truth regarding Hillary’s health.
Those against Clinton’s campaign are convinced proof of her poor health is evident in her speeches.
There is a compilation video of Hillary Clinton’s alleged health moments that many are pointing too as proof she is ill. Clips are included of Hillary Clinton repeatedly coughing.
Some conspiracy theorists believe she is in dire need of medical attention at all times. One conspiracy theory circulating is that Clinton needs Diazepam because she’s at constant risk of seizures.
The fears stem from reported brain injuries Hillary Clinton suffered in the past. In 2012, Clinton was diagnosed with cerebral venous thrombosis. ABC reported on Clinton’s condition which was described as life-threatening.
JFK Johnson Rehabilitation Center for Head Injuries medical director Dr. Brian Greenwald spoke about Clinton’s brain injury.
“She is lucky being Hillary Clinton and had a follow-up MRI — lucky that her team thought to do it. It could have potentially serious complications. Imagine this vein, where all the cerebral spinal fluid inside the head and spine no longer flows through this area. You get a big back up and that itself could cause a stroke. In the long-term … the venous system can’t get the blood out of the brain. It’s like a Lincoln Tunnel back up.”
Many fear that Clinton is suffering long term seizures following her brain injury. A comment Clinton made herself is also sparking controversy. According to the Washington Post, recent remarks Hillary Clinton made on Fox News regarding her email server hearing were not completely truthful. You can read the full fact checking article on Hillary’s statements at the Washington Post.
When Hilary Clinton was called out for the untruths, she stated that she did “short-circuit” the truth. The term “short-circuit” has caused many conspiracy theorists to believe she’s suffering brain damage.
Pharmaceutical executive Martin Shkreli, who’s embroiled in his own controversy, chose Twitter to weigh in on Clinton’s health. As someone familiar with drugs, his expertise leads him to believe Clinton has Parkinson’s disease.
I'm dead serious. I reviewed a number of videos and I think @HillaryClinton has early onset Parkinson's Disease. It appears she takes L-dopa— Martin Shkreli (@MartinShkreli) August 7, 2016
Shkreli shared his findings in an interview with InfoWars.
Even Wikileaks, the whistleblower site that released thousands of documents regarding Clinton and the DNC is tweeting about Clinton’s behavior. In the tweet, Wikileaks referred to Hillary Clinton as having a liberal nervous breakdown.
If it wasn’t enough that voters are questioning Clinton’s physical health, Trump questioned her mental health. Referring to Clinton’s “short-circuit”comments, Trump made a number of statements questioning Clinton’s mental fitness, while on the campaign trail, NYMag reports. The attacks on Hillary Clinton’s mental fitness are a new strategy for the Trump campaign.
