Should We Be Concerned About Hillary’s Health?

Chaim Amalek writes: One reason Americans are so skeptical of the press when it comes to covering the medical histories of the press-favored (and invariably Democrat) candidates is that in the past, the press has routinely covered up for the Democrat. FDR was crippled by polio. OK, so he managed that. But he also had a heart condition that led to his death early on in his 4th term. All of which the press did not cover. But you may say, “It was war-time.” OK, but not for his first two terms. John Kennedy had Addison’s Disease and was mortally dependent upon powerful, somewhat psychoactive drugs to stay alive, again not reported by the press. So it’s not surprising that people here are skeptical. Personally, I’ve yet to hear a good explanation for those prismatic glasses she was wearing, or for her needing assistance in climbing stairs that does not entail her being infirm. And she, like Trump, is getting up there in years. At 70, folks should be enjoying retirement and not campaigning for what, if handled right, is one of the world’s toughest jobs. So if notwithstanding being around 70 one decides to run then yes, very very close attention must be paid to every aspect of their health. True for Trump, true for Clinton.
