A renowned doctor has made a far-fetched claim that the Republican Nominee, Donald Trump, and the Russian President, Vladimir Putin, may be responsible for the downfall in Hillary’s health. Dr. Bennet Omalu, famous for exposing the NFL concussion crisis, made the far-fetched claim that Trump, with help from Putin, may have poisoned Hillary to sabotage the Democratic Nominee’s presidential campaign.
Clinton’s doctor diagnosed her with pneumonia on Friday, last week. And in light of all the rumors going on about Hillary’s health, her campaign managers had decided against disclosing the information until Sunday, when she was caught on camera losing her balance and fainting as she was escorted back to her van after participating in a 9/11 memorial ceremony. And Dr. Omalu’s claim that Trump poised Hillary with Putin’s help seems to be the latest addition to a seemingly endless list of conspiracy theories concerning Hillary’s Health.
In the first of two successive tweets posted within an interval of 10 minutes, Dr. Bennet Omalu advised Clinton’s campaign team to perform a toxicologic analysis of the Democratic Nominee’s blood, claiming that she could have been poisoned. Dr. Omalu hinted in the second tweet that Trump & Putin may be responsible for the poisoning, saying that, “with those two all things are possible.”
I must advice the Clinton campaign to perform toxicologic analysis of Ms. Clinton's blood. It is possible she is being poisoned.— Bennet Omalu (@bennetomalu9168) September 12, 2016
I do not trust Mr. Putin and Mr. Trump. With those two all things are possible.— Bennet Omalu (@bennetomalu9168) September 12, 2016
There have been numerous conspiracy theories concerning Hillary’s health. Some have claimed that she has been severely sick for a while now and has been using a body double in her stead.
More recently a fired Huffington Post reporter posted a video on YouTube claiming that Hillary has a serious neurological disease. The video has since had more than a million views.
Dr. Omalu’s theory is yet another addition to these conspiracy theories and for the sake of the world, let’s hope it turns out to be bogus. There is no comprehending the chain of events this claim could trigger if it turns out to be true. Imminently it could even lead to a third world war.
Dr. Bennet Omalu was famously played by actor Will Smith in the film Concussion. The film told the real life story of Dr. Omalu, who challenged the NFL over head injuries sustained by former football players. The NFL Concussion Crisis, as it was referred to, was widely reported by the media and had made Dr. Omalu somewhat of a hero. But a claim of this magnitude coming from someone as reputed as Dr. Omalu makes it all the more scary.
Hillary has spoken to the media about her episode from Sunday. Speaking to CNN after the disclosure of her diagnosis on Monday, the Democratic nominee said that she had not considered the pneumonia was going to be “that big a deal” and had instead wanted to continue on with her campaign. She also revealed that the reason she felt dizzy and lost her balance on Sunday was because she had gone to the event against her doctor’s advice to rest for a while following the diagnosis on Friday.
“I was supposed to rest five days — that’s what they told me on Friday — and I didn’t follow that very wise advice.”
Hillary also revealed that she was feeling a lot better now and that she had been ordered by her doctor to rest for a while. She said that all she wanted was to get better as soon as possible so that she could continue on with her campaign.
“So I just want to get this over and done with and get back on the trail as soon as possible.”
The Republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump, has yet to respond to Dr. Omalu’s claims, but has spoken about Hillary’s diagnosis, wishing her well and saying that he hopes to see her in their first televised presidential debate on September 22.
