Last Monday, Trump called Hillary Clinton physically unfit to serve as Commander in Chief. Photographs have also surfaced of Hillary needing help up the stairs and reports of her overall health declining on the campaign trail. And physicians agree.
Trump worries that Clinton “lacks the judgement, the temperament, and the moral character to lead this nation.” He continued, “Importantly, she also lacks the mental and physical stamina to take on ISIS, and all the many adversaries we face – not only in terrorism, but in trade and every other challenge we must confront to turn this country around.”
Clinton’s health has been a matter of scrutiny since the concussion she suffered while serving as secretary of state. While being evaluated at New York-Presbyterian Hospital, doctors discovered a blood clot inside a vein in her head and prescribed blood thinners, she told ABC News’ Diane Sawyer in 2014…
Unlike 2008 Republican presidential candidate John McCain who invited reporters to review the full 1,173 pages of his medical records, Clinton released only a summary of her past issues, including an elbow fracture in 2009 and several episodes of deep vein thrombosis.
Clinton’s chief strategist Joel Benenson said the campaign has no plans to release more detailed records, but his position is at odds with many Americans.
Various physicians around the United States have raised concern as well.
In an article on Info Wars, after noting Hillary Clinton was on Coumadin, Dr. Milton R. Wolf stated, “Hillary’s doctors know you would NEVER, NEVER give Coumadin to normal, healthy patients. It’s too dangerous,” and that this must mean, “her risk of morbidity/mortality from blood clots without Coumadin must be substantial.” She has, according to Wolf a “serious underlying disease.”
If Clinton can avoid indictment, she most certainly can find a physician to write a note of approval to campaign.
Physician Jane M. Orient says we should be skeptical.
In her post on the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons website, she argues that Hillary Clinton’s health records should be released in their entirety because “the American people are entitled to know the objective medical facts about Secretary Clinton” and if they would “really be voting for Huma Abedin, Clinton’s top aide, or for the First First Husband President, Bill Clinton.”
