Hillary Clinton not feeling well, leaves 9/11 event early
By Shimon Prokupecz, Dan Merica and Jeff Zeleny, CNN
Updated 11:12 AM ET, Sun September 11, 2016

(CNN)Updated 11:10 am: "Secretary Clinton attended the September 11th Commemoration Ceremony for just one hour and 30 minutes this morning to pay her respects and greet some of the families of the fallen. During the ceremony, she felt overheated so departed to go to her daughter's apartment, and is feeling much better," Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill said in a statement.

Original post: Hillary Clinton came to the ground zero memorial service not feeling well and then she decided to leave the event, a senior law enforcement official briefed on the episode tells CNN. The pool accompanying Clinton says she left the ceremony around 9:30 am.
While she was making her way into a van in her motorcade, Secret Service agents helped her into the van in the motorcade, the official said.

13. The Clinton campaign needs to work harder

Clinton's people should never create situations that help Trump.

All they had to do was make sure she was comfortable at the event. Would it have been that hard?

The job of the campaign is to make Clinton look strong and capable, not to throw Trump another news cycle.

I am not worried about Clinton, I'm sure she'll be fine, but this is a strategic mistake on the campaign's part.

The second mistake of the week.

He wore painful braces in order to stand rather than allow himself to be seen in a wheelchair.

So what if someone doesn't feel good? She and Trump are both at an age where their bodies are naturally declining. That is a fact, this is our candidate, rather than demand she hide some small incident or physical vulnerability we should not allow it to be an insult.
Or, maybe they should hid the fact that she, no doubt, uses reading glasses too.

If Hillary had a bad reaction to the heat, you can't call it a strategic mistake. They did not plan this. The MSM and their idiot candidate can try to turn this into something. My guess is that Trump's health will fail in a catastrophic incident while Hillary jaunts to the finish line.

67. If the first problem

was the "deplorable" basket comment, I don't really think that will work against her all that much. It is possible that was intentional and started a debate that draws away from fake scandals (email and Clinton Foundation) and redirects the conversation to Trump's racist supporters. Clinton can just apologize for misspeaking, but Trump still has racist supporters that he can't disavow!

Todd alluded, it that it plays into the narrative that given the opportunity to be open and transparent, they blew it again and instead covered it up for two days. Many will now doubt that they every would have disclosed her illness if today's events hadn't forced the issue.

It was about 82 degrees with low humidity!

Still, she needed shade, water, and some good air flow. It's not like she was there in a tank top and shorts. Those suits she wears are probably hot and horrible to campaign in.

ETA - I was wrong about the humidity. The day started out much more humid.

28. It is amazing to me how ordinary things

That happen to all of us from time to time get blown out of proportion when it comes to Hillary Clinton. Her "coughing spell" is a prime example. Everyone of us has had an episode of dry throat, swallowing wrong or allergic response to dust, dander or pollen. No mystery. No emergency. Just a normal bodily reaction, but Trump and his spokesmen talked it up endlessly like she is an end stage lung cancer patient.

Getting overheated in a high humidity setting is another common thing. It happens to me regularly, living along the Gulf Coast where our heat index often goes to triple digits. I sweat profusely and feel slightly nauseated. As soon as I get to an air conditioned environment, I recover rapidly.

This is getting to be old and a really dumb story every time she hiccoughs. Anyone with eyes can see her in a public setting and she is fine. Any journalist who allows them to follow this story line without pushing back is not doing their job. To allow them to prattle on is journalistic malpractice.

That's that not a problem from weakness but more of fighting something off. Maybe she did a little too much stationary bicycling or stair-step machine in the last hotel.

Getting some kind of virus after shaking hands with thousand of people should also be expected.

And don't forget to ad some oh-no's

Even Rock Stars are not subject to such grueling schedules as POTUS candidates

All these supposed democrats in here towing the right wing line make me sick. I don't care if she is on her death bed, I will do everything possible to keep Trump out of the Oval Office. God forbid something does happen to her, Tim Kaine is more than capable of taking over.

43. I've worked in the garden and have felt lightheaded and faint. Happens when you are dehydrated.

Screw the conspiracy theorists. I just heard the jerk Brokaw suggest she see a neurologist. He would never suggest this of a man. He has never pointed out that trump needs a psychiatrist even though most people know he does.

54. I stood on parade during military ceremonies and watched healthy young men drop

but that's not really the issue.

Anyone can have and many people do have bad days with one-off events that maybe won't mean much.

The problem is she's had a series of reported 'medical events'. I'm not comfortable with the reporting or the diagnosing of the events, but there have been a series reported.

This event was caught on video. Her inability to stand without support or to step into her transport even while supported by 2 large men isn't a rumor.

It's against that context that everyone can expect much speculation that will mostly try to find a rationalization that makes all the events be due to a common cause rather than a coincidence of one-offs.

Every additional event is going to be like oxygen blown onto glowing coals causing the media to burst into flame. Getting in front of this means doing something more than asserting a claim that everything is fine. Saying things are fine, even if they are, when they don't seem that way, is just going to work against her.

46. ffs.. cause no one's ever had heat stroke on a warm sunny day before

Especially when wearing nice, formal clothing as opposed to a tshirt and shorts.

Concern trolls can seriously go back under their rocks and bridges over this one. Travel makes people dehydrated. Seasonal allergies, which she does in fact suffer from, can also make you dehydrated. The sun makes people warm. This is a frakin no-brainer.

Anyone who wants to whine otherwise- that this is bad "optics" or a more serious health emergency-, is playing into the sexist "weak" narrative that the Trump campaign has been spinning for months. Give the woman some darn gatorade and a banana and call it a day.

53. You know what?

Even if she were in failing health, I would still vote for her. Even if she were at fucking death's door, I'd vote for her over Donald Trump. Christ, if she dropped dead I'd still vote for her over Trump. I don't care if she fainted, if she had heat exhaustion, if she was dehydrated, she has my vote. I prefer a sick or even dying Hillary Clinton over a hale and hearty Donald Trump. In fact, the only way in hell I'd even think for an instant of voting for him is if you could assure me he'd stroke out and die the next day, and even then I wouldn't vote for him because Pence.

If I could go back in time to the 1930s, knowing what I know now about FDR's health, I'd still vote for him. Or JFK in 1960.

Of course, I don't think Hillary has any serious health issues, but like you, I would vote for her if she did.

57. Being a bit unwell from time to time is a universal human experience

We all sometimes get colds. We all sometimes get headaches. We all get uncomfortably hot or cold.

It doesn't mean there's something sinister going on.

Daddy Bush was famously sick all over the Japanese Prime Minister once! And while it was certainly an embarrassment, no one that I remember said that he wasn't able to be president because of it.

60. I fainted in my 30s from heat

Within an hour after arriving at an outdoor festival. The temperature was in the mid 80s on a sunny day.

I suddenly felt sick. Then I asked an exhibitor if I could sit down on the chair in her booth. Next thing I know I am in an ambulance on the way to the ER for fluids. I hadn't ridden in an ambulance before nor since.

Hillary has already bounced back. Anyone can overheat. This isn't anything more than that.

109. Neither do I. Something genetic.

I get heat-sick every once in a while when Im not prepared for humid heat. Starts out with wooziness, then a splitting headache and the need to wretch - which actually helps me feel better. Only cures are at least a half hour of shade, an ice pack, some breeze, lavender oil ( or Vicks vapo-rub on the bridge of my nose) and 8 oz of cold caffine. Or 6 hour of rest in the shade and about a quart of water. It's not the same as heat stroke, which l've had twice.
Doesn't mean I'm weak, just means I have to prepare for humid heat when I go out.

And the media that's against her is going to be against her no matter what. Hillary figured that out a loooong time ago. Let that reaction shot of hers at the Trey Gowdy-led Benghazi hearings be your guide to how she feels about it all. She's weathered worse than MSNBC playing a video over & over.

I can't imagine any one who would change their vote to Trump even if she were gravely ill. With Kaine in their it might even make it less adverse for some.
