Report: Clinton Avoided Bellevue ER to Conceal Details of Her Medical Treatment
Fallon was no doubt trying to dampen widespread speculation that Clinton may be suffering from Parkinson's disease. A Republican state representative from New Hampshire went out on a limb Monday stating on Facebook that he thinks Clinton has the disease.
Via the Daily Mail:
Daniel Tamburello, a representative for New Hampshire, posted on his Facebook page that his father had Parkinson's and that pneumonia is common among sufferers of the neuro-degenerative disease.
'They may have admitted HRC has pneumonia, but that's not WHY she has pneumonia. I believe she has pneumonia caused by Parkinsons [sic] disease,' Tamburello wrote.
The Clinton camp, meanwhile, is putting out the word that "a debilitating bug was making the rounds among staff at her headquarters and campaign aides who travel with Clinton." According to People magazine, at least half a dozen senior staff were struck with various respiratory infections two weeks before Clinton was diagnosed with pneumonia.
Fallon's story is that “several of the senior staff have been afflicted with something or other for the last few days.”
“I was sick for a couple of days. I had the mild form of it,” Fallon said.
The stricken staffers included campaign manager Robby Mook, and two top aides who needed emergency medical treatment — one of whom was taken by ambulance to a hospital emergency room after collapsing from severe dehydration, People magazine reported.
According to Fallon, however, Clinton’s pneumonia is “not contagious.” It is not known whether Clinton received the pneumococcal vaccine for all adults age 65 and older as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends.
Bill Clinton will appear in Clinton's place at some fundraisers in California Tuesday while she rests.
