Hillary Clinton’s health problems first weren’t anything to worry about; the concern about coughing was “conspiracy” talk. Or maybe she was just dehydrated. Then the story changed to, well, yes, there were allergies that were causing minutes-long fits of uncontrolled hacking.
Then came the admission Sunday that the Democratic Party candidate for president had been diagnosed with pneumonia but now is feeling much better, though she will be off the trail a few days to get some rest.
Scott Johnson of the blog Powerline cites a board certified internist who suggests the pneumonia is a symptom of something worse: a stroke or possibly Parkinson’s.
The internist wrote: “During my 19 years as a board certified internist I have taken care of many hundreds of patients with pneumonia. The story about Hillary Clinton being diagnosed with pneumonia raises a red flag as to the cause. It could simply have been a community acquired pneumonia, which means she contracted it as a healthy person living her usual life. This happens occasionally, even to healthy people. If this is the case the timing certainly is unfortunate for her given where we are in the election cycle though it doesn’t portend anything ominous.”
In support of that theory, members of the Clinton campaign have been struck by a “debilitation bug” at her headquarters, People magazine reported.
See the Big List of doctors who have come out with questions about Hillary Clinton’s health.
An unidentified source told the publication: “At least half a dozen senior staff were felled, including campaign manager Robby Mook. Two top advisers even needed emergency medical treatment, the source says. One top adviser diagnosed at a Brooklyn urgent-care center with a respiratory infection was being treated with antibiotics in the days before Clinton’s diagnosis. Another top adviser was taken by ambulance to the ER by ambulance after collapsing from what turned out to be severe dehydration, the source said.”
However, the internist believes there is another “more worrisome possibility.”
“I raise this second possibility because of Hillary’s history of neurological illnesses (blood clot in brain, concussion), hints raised on the Internet in Wikileaks documents and by others that she may have a neurological disease like Parkinson’s, and her by now well documented history of recurrent coughing fits. This second possibility is that she has an aspiration pneumonia.
“Aspiration pneumonia occurs when fluids and food particles that normally enter the esophagus instead enter the windpipe and lungs. It is commonly seen in neurological conditions like strokes and Parkinson’s disease or similar diseases where the nerves to the swallowing mechanism are not working properly. This is especially worrisome because it is likely to recur given the underlying, usually incurable disease process and because it can be a life-threatening event,” he said.
“I consider aspiration pneumonia to be the more likely cause because it unifies all the pieces of disparate information that are available on Hillary’s medical condition. A diagnosis of aspiration pneumonia raises profoundly troubling implications for her possible election as president,” he concluded.
At VidZette, Dr. Ted Noel agreed that probably is the case.
He assembled a 16-minute video explaining that the evidence suggests she has had Parkinson’s and has known about it, for several years.
“Everything … fits the theory,” he said. “Video evidence is solid. [There’s] strong evidence of [her] having advanced Parkinson’s disease.”
And that, he concluded, makes her “medically unfit” for the Oval Office.
