Hillary’s health rumors went into overdrive again after Clinton’s camp claimed the 69-year-old granny is battling pneumonia after fainting at a September 11 ceremony in Manhattan.
Not surprisingly, many voters are skeptical of Hillary’s pneumonia claim.
Why? Because of the trail of nonstop lies Clinton has told about her health (and other issues) over the past year.
Clinton’s camp initially claimed she had “overheated” during the 9/11 event even though it was a breezy 79 degrees with low humidity at the time she collapsed.

A few hours later, a smiling Hillary told the press she was “feeling great.”
Then, under mounting pressure, Hillary’s reps later alleged that Clinton had been diagnosed with pneumonia on Sept. 9.
The only problem with that excuse is that Hillary had a full schedule on Sept. 9: She sat for an interview with CNN, attended a two-hour national security meeting, and appeared at two fundraisers.
So when did Hillary have time to undergo the battery of tests required for a pneumonia diagnosis?
Even neurosurgeon Dr. Sanjay Gupta — a medical analyst for the pro-Hillary network CNN — expressed skepticism.
To get diagnosed with pneumonia, patients usually have to go to a hospital, undergo a full medical exam, take blood tests, and get X-rays, said Dr. Gupta.
So when did Hillary have time on Sept. 9 to do all this?
Hillary’s health became a key campaign issue because of her history of health problems dating back to her 2012 concussion.
Since then, Clinton has struggled with a series of uncontrollable coughing fits and fainting spells.
Hillary also suffered three blood clots in recent years: A blood clot in her brain in 2013, and two in her leg, in 2000 and 1998, as Celebrity Health Fitness reported.
In addition to her 2012 concussion, Clinton has suffered blurred vision, hypothyroidism, and must take prescription blood thinners for the rest of her life.
Recent photos spotlighting Clinton’s chronic need to sit down on stools have also raised questions about Hillary’s health.
It’s unclear why Clinton sits down so often, since she suffers from deep vein thrombosis, according to her physician, Dr. Lisa Bardack.
Too much sitting exacerbates deep vein thrombosis, a serious condition that occurs when a blood clot forms in a vein.
In a 2015 letter, Dr. Bardack revealed Hillary suffers from hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid gland), TheImproper reported.
Symptoms of hypothyroidism include:
- Chronic fatigue.
- Memory lapses.
Biographer Ed Klein, former editor-in-chief of the New York Times magazine, said Hillary has long battled exhaustion, insomnia, depression, hand tremors and blinding headaches.
“She no longer has the stamina for 18-hour campaign days,” a source told Klein in his 2015 book, Unlikeable: The Problem with Hillary.
“She is exhausted and depressed a lot of the time.”
When asked about Hillary’s health problems, Donald Trump said he plans to release a detailed medical report this week.
“Last week I took a physical and when the numbers come in I’ll be releasing very, very specific numbers,” Trump told Fox News. “I think [Hillary’s health] is an issue. I just hope she gets well.”
