On Sunday, Hillary Clinton left early from the 9/11 Memorial Service at Ground Zero after she felt “over-heated.” One Twitter video shows Clinton uneasily get into her van, aided by Secret Service agents. Clinton then rested at her daughter Chelsea’s apartment for about 90 minutes, where she recuperated. When she left the apartment, she said, “I’m feeling great. It’s a beautiful day in New York.” She also stopped to pose for a photo with a young girl, before she headed to her home in Chappaqua.
Clinton’s campaign released her doctor’s statement that said she had been diagnosed with pneumonia on Friday. Dr. Lisa R. Bardack examined Clinton at home after the 9/11 memorial incident, and said, “She was put on antibiotics, and advised to rest and modify her schedule. At this morning’s event, she became overheated and dehydrated.” Dr. Bardack also stated that, “Mrs. Clinton is rehydrated and recovering nicely.”
The morning after 9/11, Hillary told reporters, “Now the advice, of course, is just don’t talk for a day or two,” she laughed. “Yeah, that’s not gonna work for me. I’m just gonna keep talking and hope that power through and tomorrow I’ll be fine.”
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump responded to Clinton’s sudden illness on Fox News. Trump said, “I just hope she gets well and gets back on the trail and we’ll be seeing her at the debate.” Trump then promised to share his own medical examination results, saying, “I saw what was going on with her and I said ‘you know I’m going to do something.’ I’ll be announcing, sometime during the week I’ll be handing out a paper with some very large numbers, hopefully very good statistics.” He also added, “I feel very confident, otherwise I probably wouldn’t be telling you I did this.”
