Hillary Clinton left a 9/11 memorial ceremony at Ground Zero this morning, due to a “medical episode.” The video shows Madam Secretary collapsing as she attempted to get into a minivan, having to be helped by her staff.
Her campaign told The Washington Post she felt “overheated.”
“Secretary Clinton attended the September 11th Commemoration Ceremony for just an hour and thirty minutes this morning to pay her respects and greet some of the families of the fallen,” spokesman Nick Merrill said. “During the ceremony, she felt overheated, so departed to go to her daughter’s apartment and is feeling much better.”
This morning was a nice, comfortable 82 degrees and breezy with humidity in the 40-percent range in New York City.
Given Clinton’s fleeting acquaintance with the truth, we might assume her explanation is spun like a banana spider’s web. I am proudly #NeverTrump, but unlike Trump’s steel ring of defenders, don’t see my opposition to Trump as enabling Hillary. Something is up here, and Clinton must come clean.
Even liberals can’t spin this hard.
To add fire to the ever-present smoke surrounding Clinton’s campaign, she kept the press completely in the dark during her unexpected departure, penning them Trump-style and not allowing them to leave or ask about her status.

Donald Trump, in a rare display of self-control, has not yet tweeted about Clinton’s collapse. But he has been planting seeds about Hillary’s health for months, citing her lack of “stamina.” A frail old woman who collapses at 9:30am in 80-degree heat gives plenty of ammunition to those claims.
Let me ask my liberal friends a question: Would you really vote for a sick old lady who lies about everything she does–even if you agree with all of her positions? Would this person be the one you want to lead the country for the next four years?
If it hasn’t become clear enough to you that our presidential choices in 2016 are a choice between Nero and Caligula (with Timothy Leary and Harambe-Banksy thrown in for fun), then you might want to stop drinking whatever flavor of Kool Aid you’ve been imbibing.
It’s time for Clinton to come clean on her health, for the country’s sake–and for good measure, it’s time for Trump to release his taxes. Then at least everyone will know how bad it really is.
