C is for Coughing Fit: Hillary Struggles to Speak at Cleveland Campaign Rally

Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton had a 4-minute coughing spell in the middle of a campaign appearance in Cleveland, Ohio.

“Every time I think about Trump I get allergic,” she gasped as she reached for a glass of water. It didn’t help.

She croaked out “We have 63 days to go” before she was overcome by coughing again.

Concerns about the candidate’s health were confirmed when Clinton admitted that a concussion left her unable to remember any of her briefings on how to handle classified materials when she was secretary of State.

“Hillary Clinton told federal investigators she did not recall all the briefings she received on handling government records while U.S. secretary of state because of a concussion suffered in 2012,” wrote Reuters.

“However, in December of 2012, Clinton suffered a concussion and then around the New Year had a blood clot,” the FBI’s summary said. “Based on her doctor’s advice, she could only work at State for a few hours a day and could not recall every briefing she received.”

Is her coughing related to her head injury?
