Hillary Clinton asked the Commission on Presidential Debates if she could use a step stool so she wouldn’t look so short and squat next to Donald Trump at the first presidential debate on Sept. 26.
At 6-foot-2, Trump towers over the 5-foot-4 Hillary. The commission refused Hillary’s stool request, but will instead custom-build a podium for her to minimize the height difference, the Daily Mail reported.
The lack of stools and the commission’s rules stating there will be no commercial breaks during the 90-minute debate could spell trouble for Clinton, who has been plagued with health problems, including extended coughing fits.
On Sept. 11, Hillary famously collapsed at Ground Zero, as a disturbing video shot by a Clinton supporter showed.
Hillary initially claimed she had “overheated” in mild 79-degree weather. Shortly afterward, Clinton told the press she “felt great.”
Hours later, Hillary’s camp said she had pneumonia. Shortly after that, Clinton’s entire senior staff claimed they, too, all had pneumonia.
Thanks to the succession of implausible, contradictory excuses, most people did not believe Hillary’s pneumonia story.
Hillary’s health was also called into question after numerous people pointed out that she always sits on a stool during her brief rallies.
Not surprisingly, Trump has raised concerns about Hillary’s nonexistent stamina.
Her recent 9/11 collapse, inability get through a rally without sitting, and disturbing memory lapses only cement speculation that she is unfit to be president.
An FBI summary from Clinton’s interview on July 2 shows Hillary said “I don’t recall” or “I don’t remember” 41 times in 3 hours when asked about her secret, unsecured email server.
Several top physicians, including neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson and President Obama’s former physician, Dr. David Scheiner, say Clinton should get her head examined due to her past traumatic brain injuries.
“I think she should’ve had a thorough neurological examination in 2016,” said Dr. David Scheiner, a Hillary supporter.
“We know what happens to football players who have had concussions, how they begin to lose some of their cognitive ability.”
More recently, Hillary’s erratic eye movements during a speech have caused some doctors to wonder aloud if Clinton has brain damage, and should get tested for Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.
Hillary suffered a concussion in 2012 after falling in her home and hitting her head. In 2013, Hillary suffered a blood clot in her brain.
Clinton, who has deep vein thrombosis, also suffered two blood clots in her leg: in 2000 and 1998.
In a 2015 letter, Clinton’s doctor, Lisa Bardack, revealed Hillary suffers from hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid gland).
Symptoms of hypothyroidism include:
- Memory problems
- Chronic fatigue
Biographer Ed Klein, former editor-in-chief of the New York Times magazine, said Hillary has long battled memory lapses, chronic fatigue, insomnia, and depression.
Chronic insomnia has “sapped her energy,” Klein wrote in Unlikeable: The Problem with Hillary. “She is exhausted and depressed a lot of the time.”
