5. He didn't look good last night. He was on one of the MSNBC shows.

I remember thinking he looked like death warmed over. Hope itís just dehydration or mild flu.

14. I noticed the same thing when he was on Rachel's show.

He didn't look good and stumbled over his words a bit. I would imagine the stress and long hours are getting to him. You can only climb a few roadblocks before exhaustion takes over and he's had more than a few of those since Barr came onboard. Trump was enough strain, but add Barr to it and who knows what will happen? I hope he goes to the doctor.

6. Had a Cough

Saw him on Maddow last night, He coughed several times. Don't know if that means anything. Maybe just a little under the weather or has a bug.

9. Interesting. Also, the NYT mentioned that he'd had

stomach reduction surgery some time ago for obesity. Didn't comment further on that, just threw it in.

Sure hope he's as fine as his tweet afterward says.

11. Sounds like a side effect of

his Surgery. Hydration is key to the weight lose program from what our neighbor mentioned who has done this Surgery. My Niece mentioned faintness was a issues for her first six months or so after her Stomach Surgery until she got a handle her Hydration issues.

13. Ah! And he's saying it was dehydration himself.

Well, I definitely like that explanation. At 71, no one can count on good health continuing.

15. Deit and Liquid Intake

are so important to those who have this Surgery done. Nadler my even be dealing with Diabetes,hopefully not,if that is the case,that explains the Soda Can in his hand.

17. And he's almost certainly working like a dog

on top of everything.

Imagine even party leaders require frequent emotional regrouping to handle this level of stress day after day. Deep breath, release.........

16. OK, if HE said that, I'll read no further.

In 2002 and 2003, Nadler had laparoscopic duodenal switch surgery, helping him lose more than 100 pounds.

but as he's addressed it (and has been dealing with it for all these years,) I'm happy to assume he has it under control.

20. Yes. I suspect the stress and pressure of work

that have become normal for these guys would kill me all by itself. But then trying to care for a new baby would probably put me in the hospital these days. Life is slow, and if I never checked the news, good.

Appreciate everyone's concern. Was very warm in the room this morning, was obviously dehydrated and felt a bit ill. Glad to receive fluids and am feeling much better. Thank you for your thoughts.

12. Thank you for that update!



I can see how that happens - if you know you are going to be engaged for some time, you don't want to drink too much beforehand or you'll need to use the restroom - often right in the middle of whatever you are participating in. But then in conditions such as that, you can get dehydrated by making that decision too.

21. Dehydration is what caused Hillary to faint in 2016 election. At Nadler's age, I bet he takes

diuretics for his heart. I take them and recently passed out in a parking lot.

23. When I'm dehydrated I get a major sinus headache

That's how I know I'm dehydrated. It usually happens in the wintertime when there's no humidity in the air, and sometimes I forget to drink water.

30. Lordy, why couldn't that have happened to Trump ..

instead of Chairman Nadler. He is a gentleman and a Patriot (everything Trump is not). I live in Mexico because it is cheaper and I live primarily on my SS. But I am thinking (and leaning that direction) of moving back to the states if I can find a cheap enough place to live. 2 reasons; this damned heat might kill me (I am 76) and besides the heat I want to do more in the 2020 election than I can do from here. I spend a lot of hours everyday on net keeping up with the news and watching MSNBC. And I do a lot of emailing from here. But I want to do more.
Everyone say a prayer for Chairman Nadler tonight. We need him up and well.
