Let’s start out with the disclaimer. I’m not a doctor. I don’t play one on TV, and I’ve never played one on the stage. Well, ok…let me amend that. I DID play a doctor in a stage play of Harvey in high school once. So, what I’m about to say is conjecture. That means I don’t have facts backing it up other than her stumbling yesterday after she leaves a 9/11 event early claiming “heat exhaustion” (it was 77 degrees with 30% humidity…that ain’t heat exhaustion folks!) That would make this an opinion piece.
OK…back to real life. I am beginning to think there really is something wrong with Hillary Clinton medically. Why would I make such a brash and bold statement not being a physician, and never having (or wanting) to examine her? Because of the pushback she and her staff are giving on this whole coughing fit thing. See, with the Clintons, you can always tell when there is something there. They push back with veracity. They pull no punches in immediately attacking whomever is coming after them with the accusation. And in this case, they have sent out the entire Clinton campaign staff to play bad cop. Hillary made a joke about it saying she was allergic to Donald Trump (not a bad attempt at humor for someone of her lack of personality). But her staff went ape-shit. And then when they HAD to come out with more regarding her collapse yesterday, oops…all of a sudden, we find out she was diagnosed with pneumonia on Friday. When were we going to learn about that?
They came out firing on all cylinders. And that’s the clue. When the Clintons come out, like Hillary and her cronies did after March 10, 2015, and vehemently deny they have done anything wrong, and then keep up the pressure after the initial presser, you know there is something behind it. That’s the case here. She’s worried that Americans are going to find out the truth, and she and her staff are fighting tooth and nail trying to get past it. It’s going to have the same repercussions as the email server scandal. She’s going to parse her words very carefully, she’s going to make sure that “legally”, she says the right stuff, while the 99.9% of Americans that aren’t lawyers, and think that everyday English actually means something will come away thinking she’s a bigger liar than we already thought she was. THAT is the Clinton problem. THAT is why this race is so close. If Hillary Clinton were honest and trustworthy, she’d be crushing Trump by 25 points by this time. She’s not. And America knows it.
The biggest problem has with pulling the lever for Hillary Clinton is she lies. You can never tell when she’s telling the truth. And she just doesn’t lie about the big stuff…she lies about all stuff. That’s the problem and that’s what has people worried. Oh, the Dems are trying to say that Trump lies. They’ve tried to tie Trump’s contribution to the Florida Attorney General a few years back to a “pay to play” scandal of his own, hoping to draw some fire from their own Clinton Foundation foibles. The problem is, we already know Bill and Hillary Clinton are the political equivalent of trailer park trash. And that play was taken out of Barack Obama’s 2012 re-election playbook. Remember how the economy sucked so bad that they’d talk about anything BUT the economy? Same thing here. Hillary will vilify Trump so she doesn’t have to face the real issues of the campaign. Now, you can add health to that list. And that is what’s going to dog her through the election, and through her presidency if she pulls it off.
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
