Hillary Clinton Pneumonia Diagnosis Released After Stumbling While Leaving 9/11 Commemoration


Hillary Clinton has pneumonia, her doctor said, hours after the Democratic nominee stumbled as she left a 9/11 commemoration ceremony early.

Earlier today officials close to Hillary Clinton said that about one hour into the 9/11 ceremony at the National September 11 Memorial in New York, Clinton became overheated and had to leave early. She was later seen at her daughter Chelsea Clinton’s New York City apartment, and told the crowd she was doing “great” in a news video.

Hours after nearly fainting and stumbling while leaving the National September 11 Memorial in New York City on Sunday, Hillary Clinton’s doctor reported the Democratic presidential candidate is recovering from pneumonia, which was diagnosed on Friday. No mention of pneumonia had been released to the public prior to today’s incident.

“Secretary Clinton has been experiencing a cough related to allergies,” Dr. Lisa R. Bardack, M.D. said in the statement. “On Friday, during follow up evaluation of her prolonged cough, she was diagnosed with pneumonia. She was put on antibiotics, and advised to rest and modify her schedule. While at the event, she became overheated and dehydrated.”

Bardack, an internal medicine specialist affiliated with Northern Westchester Hospital in Mount Kisco, New York, added that Hillary Clinton, who was re-examined upon returning to her Chappaqua, New York, home on Sunday, is now “re-hydrated and recovering nicely.”

Recently, mainly conservative news sources and conservative political pundits, had been speculating on her health after a couple of coughing fits. Hillary Clinton even joked that the coughing was caused by an allergy to Trump, saying, “Every time I think of Trump I get allergic.”


On Tuesday, September 6, 2016 Hillary Clinton blames cough on Trump allergy … “I get allergic.”
