Hillary Clinton left the 9/11 Memorial earlier today, and it was clear she was not well. As she got into her car, she appeared to faint. Now I feel bad about some of the mean things I’ve said about her, especially yesterday when I said “I hope she dies,” on a particularly combative thread.
I haven’t actually changed my position – Hillary Clinton’s demise might be the best thing that could happen for America – and the world – but I do feel bad about thinking it.
Maybe she could just be sick enough to be forced to step down? Nah, she ain’t going to step down as long as she’s drawing breath. We can see that.
After her Cleveland Cough-a-thon, they said it was allergies. Today, after not taking her to a hospital but to her daughter’s apartment, her doctor said it was dehydration, or pneumonia.
That struck me as a bit of double talk, because dehydration and pneumonia are not the same thing.
On CNN, they were fawning all over her, (fair enough, if she’d died the praise would be sickening) saying what a grueling, physically demanding thing it was to run for president. What grueling schedule? She goes to private fundraisers, in fancy hotels and millionaire’s mansions, away from the cameras. She hasn’t got a grueling schedule.
Well, maybe I’m being a bit cynical here, standing for hours in the sun can cause problems, and she’s not a young woman.
But, if she thinks the campaign trail is grueling and a threat to her health, wait till she tries being president.
