Hillary Clinton used her response to a New York City bombing Saturday night to take a swipe at Donald Trump, but critics wondered if she brought more attention to her own problems with the brief exchange.
A sedate-sounding Clinton looked like she was going to pass out, according to political commenter Mark Dice and others on social media.

“I’ve been briefed about the bombings in New York and New Jersey and the attack in Minnesota. Obviously we need to do everything we can to support our first responders,” She told the media pool travelling with her. “I’ll have more to say about it when we actually know some facts.”
When asked about Trump’s comments at his Colorado rally that a “bomb” had gone off in New York, she went further.
“I think it’s important to know the facts about any incident like this. That’s why it’s critical to support the first responders, the investigators who are looking into it trying to determine what did happen. I think it’s also wiser to wait until you have information before making conclusions because we are just in the beginning stages of trying to determine what happened,” she said.
Dice was one of many who noted that Clinton looked like she was going to pass out while speaking to the press.
“Is this our future commander-in-chief? Is this who you want to be running America as ISIS continues to grow stronger by the day?” Dice asked while playing a clip of her speech.
“Wake up Hillary!” he said. “Do you need some coffee grandma?”
Many others were thinking she sounded drunk or drugged:
@NolteNC Even though she’s drugged out and half asleep, Hillary knows this most likely ended her bid to be Pay for Play in Chief.
