Hillary Clinton Cancels California Fundraisers, Ellen DeGeneres Show Due To Alleged Pneumonia

NEW YORK (AP) — An ill Hillary Clinton abruptly left a 9/11 anniversary ceremony Sunday and needed to be held up by three people before she appeared to stumble off a curb and was helped into a van. Several hours later, her campaign revealed she had been diagnosed with pneumonia on Friday and advised to rest.

Less than two months from Election Day, it was an unwanted visual for Clinton as she tries to project the strength and vigor needed for one of the world’s most demanding jobs. Republican rival Donald Trump has spent months questioning Clinton’s health, saying she lacks the stamina to be president.

In a statement, Clinton’s doctor said the former secretary of state had become overheated and dehydrated at the event in lower Manhattan. “I have just examined her and she is now rehydrated and recovering nicely,” Dr. Lisa R. Bardack said.

The physician said Clinton has had an allergy-related cough, and that during a follow-up examination Friday, the candidate was diagnosed with pneumonia, put on antibiotics, advised to rest and modify her schedule.

Clinton’s departure from the event was not witnessed by the reporters who travel with her campaign and aides provided no information about why she left or her whereabouts for nearly two hours. Spokesman Nick Merrill eventually said Clinton had gone to her daughter’s nearby apartment, but refused to say whether the former secretary of state had required medical attention.

Excerpted From The Daily Mail: Hillary Clinton has called off plans to visit the West Coast on Monday and Tuesday following her ‘medical episode’ at the 9/11 memorial ceremony.

Her doctor revealed that the 68-year-old has pneumonia – hours after a video showed her collapsing into the arms of her Secret Service agents after being rushed from the memorial service at the World Trade Center.

Dr Lisa R Bardack said Sunday evening that Clinton had become overheated and dehydrated at the event in lower Manhattan.

Bardack said Clinton is now ‘recovering nicely’ at her home in Chappaqua, New York.

The Democratic nominee was scheduled to attend fundraisers on Monday and Tuesday in California, and tape an episode of Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show.

Clinton is now holed up in her upstate New York home after a bystander recorded her losing her balance, slumping at the knees and being held up by her aides while waiting to get in a minivan.

Her campaign had earlier blamed ‘overheating’ for the episode – which saw her rushed away from the ceremony at Ground Zero and back to Chelsea’s apartment.

Her press pool was not informed for 90 minutes of her whereabouts or given an explanation for the abrupt departure.

At the time the temperature was around 80 degrees and the humidity was low.

Earlier on Sunday, Bardack said that Clinton ‘has been experiencing a cough related to allergies’.

On Friday, during follow up evaluation of her prolonged cough, she was diagnosed with pneumonia.

Bardack said Clinton was put on antibiotics, and advised to rest and modify her schedule.

‘While at this morning’s event, she became overheated and dehydrated. I have just examined her and she is now re-hydrated and recovering nicely.’

Clinton’s collapse adds to growing fears for her health, which began mounting on Labor Day when she broke out in a coughing fit during a speech in Ohio. Keep reading
