Hillary Clinton in a shocking revelation, as per reports, is using a body double. The 68-year-old presidential nominee stumbled and was helped into a van by security officers’ while attending the 9/11 ceremony in New York on Sunday.
The video footage has become viral and shows strange metals falling from the Democratic presidential nominee’s pant leg. It has been reported that the video was first posted on the subreddit for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, Morning News USA reported.
Hours later it was revealed that Hillary Clinton had been diagnosed with pneumonia and advised to rest on Friday. Dr Lisa Bardack reportedly prescribed her antibiotics and advised her to rest and change her schedule.
“I have just examined her and she is now rehydrated and recovering nicely,” Dr Lisa Bardack said. She added that Hillary Clinton was overheated and dehydrated and had an allergy-related cough at the event in lower Manhattan.
Interestingly, reporters who are with the former secretary of state throughout her campaign did not see her departing the venue. Aides also did not give any explanations about the incident.
A spokesperson for Clinton said that she had gone to her daughter Chelsea’s apartment which was nearby. A video footage of Hillary Clinton later shows her emerging out of Chelsea’s apartment, the same afternoon, AP reports.
“I’m feeling great. It’s a beautiful day in New York,” said Hillary Clinton. She then waves to the crowd and when a little girl comes up to her she puts an arm around her and poses for a picture.
However, she later cancelled her plans to go to California on Monday, CNN reports. Hillary Clinton had a two-day fundraising, campaign events and an appearance on Ellen DeGeneres talk show.
Clinton is seen wearing a navy pantsuit with white top and black pumps. She also wears blue rounded glares.
In the video footage outside Chelsea Clinton’s apartment, Hillary appears to wear the same outfit and accessories. But, strangely enough, she looks slimmer and even her face looks longer.
As commentators points out the women or allegedly Hillary Clinton body double has no aides and body guards around. It is strange as she always has escorts. If this is the body double of Hillary Clinton, then where the real Hillary is, is the big question.
The presidential nominee looks rather fresh and good in the video footage. She told that she took medicines and “feels great.”
In a twitter picture, the body double appears to carry the handbag on the right shoulder, while Hillary earlier in the day carries the same bag on her left shoulder.
