Hillary Clinton’s health a weighing concern on voters

NEW YORK, New York, USA (sentinel.ht) – Manifestations of declining health, mental lapses, stumbles and the use of various aids for balance and aides for mobility, Hillary Rodham Clinton, the 68-year old, well-traveled former Secretary of State has a growing number of voters concerned over her fitness to be Commander-in-Chief.

Hillary’s Health

Dr. Drew, a well-known medical doctor, commented, on Monday, on released medical records of Clinton. The television personality who holds a Doctorate in Medicine said that Hillary Clinton’s medical team has been treating her with prescriptions and methods that have been outdated for a half-century. Dr. Drew said her practitioners would be mocked in a doctor’s lounge for providing such care.

In recent days social media has been ablaze with the hashtag, #HillarysStool, trending. This tag was created to highlight the fact that the former First Lady has been unable to stand for long periods of time at her rallies. She appears to be taking breathers, leaning or sitting on a stool during campaign stops. In domestic settings, Clinton holds chairs, leans against tables and rails.

What preceded the public’s concern for Hillary Clinton’s health were words from the former Secretary of State herself. While taking questions at a conference of black and Latino journalists, Clinton was still unable to truthfully characterize the report of FBI Director James Comey as it regards to her “extremely careless” use of a private, unsecure email system to handle “highly classified information”. Clinton told journalists that her inability to accurately recount Comey’s statements are instances where she possibly “short-circuited”.

Day’s after her short-circuit statement, a photo began making the rounds across conservative websites and social media of Hillary Clinton being aided by two persons, in February 2016, to climb up a stairway of no more than 6 steps.

Furthermore, it appears a man, who if not in poor shape would be assumed Clinton’s security, has been shadowing her while carrying what appears to be a Diazepam pen. Diazepam is a benzodiazepine (ben-zoe-dye-AZE-eh-peens). It affects chemicals in the brain that may be unbalanced in people with anxiety. Diazepam is used to treat anxiety disorders, alcohol withdrawal symptoms, or muscle spasms. Diazepam is sometimes used with other medications to treat seizures.
