Just two days after Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton collapsed as she was being whisked away from a 9/11 commermoration ceremony at Ground Zero in Manhattan, former President Bill Clinton said in an interview today that his wife, the former secretary of state, is in better health thanher rival, Donald Trump.
When “CBS This Morning” show host Charlie Rose said that Americans may believe that Hillary Clinton’s health is now an issue in the current presidential race, Bill Clinton remarked, "They think everything is a campaign issue." The former president said, "I think her lifestyle and underlying indicators, from blood pressure to amount of exercise to everything else, means it's almost certain she's in better health than her opponent." He continued, saying "But we don't know, because he hasn't disclosed."
Hillary Clinton received a diagnosis of pneumonia on September 9, but decided to attend the commemoration on September 11. However, this fact was not shared with the public until after her collapse. Other questions have arisen over her use of eyeglasses bearing blue lenses, which may be evidence of epilepsy.
Repeating the press guidance that came about one hour after Hillary stumbled and fell, Bill Clinton appeared to dismiss concerns over his wife’s health scare. "She just got dehydrated," Clinton told CBS.
When host Rose spoke of the amateur video that captured the moment Hillary stumbled and fell, he asked Bill Clinton whether he is suffering from a more serious condition. "If it is, it's a mystery to me and all of her doctors," Bill Clinton insisted. "She's worked like a demon, as you know, as secretary of State and as a senator and the years since," Clinton said.
Last night, Hillary Clinton said she did not think that the pneumonia diagnosis is "going to be that big a deal." Nonetheless, there are reports that some Democratic operative have begun contemplating a replacement should Hillary leave the race.
