Hillary Acts “Healthy” at Rally, Then Someone Spots What’s in Staffer’s Hand
Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton recently held a rally at Temple University in Philadelphia. This, in itself, wasn’t terribly interesting.
In fact, the only interesting item was that, according to The Gateway Pundit, Clinton was able to draw only a small room of people on a campus of over 37,000 students.
It wasn’t until after the event until someone noticed something in one of Hillary Clinton staffer’s hand: Clinton’s arm.
Don’t know what I’m talking about? Take a look:
She’s being helped up stairs by a staffer. Again.
Yes, a week after she took some time to rest and was apparently given the all-clear to campaign after her bacterial pneumonia (alleged, may I add) caused her to collapse at a 9/11 memorial ceremony, she’s still being helped up stairs by a staffer.
Let me preface this by saying that I understand that this may be a well-meaning Hillarista simply offering a helping hand to the Democrat nominee. After all, it’s no secret that both nominees are old, and those that are younger and more able may have been raised to show deference to their elders by helping them where they might not be physically-capable.
I understand that, and it doesn’t necessarily mean Hillary Clinton cannot carry out the duties of the presidency.
Here’s the thing, though: As an American, you’ve been able to judge Hillary Clinton by over a quarter-century of her being in the spotlight.
Let’s say she was perfectly healthy but rumors were going around that her health was an issue. These rumors might cost her the presidency. At a very public event, a kindly staffer offers to help her up the stairs as an ill-considered sign of deference.
a) … accept the man’s help as kindly, albeit patronizing?
b) … knock him over with a Chuck Norris uppercut, cartwheel up the stairs, raise her clasped hands above her head and bellow, “I have vanquished the malefactor! I AM EXCELSIOR! Fear my unbridled wrath, mansplaining denizens of these 50 states and assorted oceanic possessions!”?
I’m going with B.
Keep in mind, too, that even though there are visible issues with Hillary Clinton’s health, the media has chosen to focus on the invisible possible aspects of Donald Trump’s health.
This is the same thing the media did in 1984, when pundits declared Ronald Reagan too old to run again, even though he was in robust health. The same thing was done to Bob Dole in 1996 — who, it’s worth adding, is still kicking 20 years after that election.
How is it that the one time it becomes conspiracy theory is when it’s a Democrat who has shown visible signs of illness that aren’t otherwise explicable?
