On Monday, Hillary Clinton had a tough time fighting back coughs during a campaign in Cleveland, Ohio.
It has been reported that during the Democratic presidential primary, the former Secretary of State had gone through coughs as well. According to NBC News, Clinton’s case on Monday was one of the most aggressive she has had during her 2016 run. The fit was so powerful it left her almost unable to finish her speech.
“Every time I think about Trump I get allergic,” said the Democratic presidential nominee while coughing during the Cleveland rally.
The audience laughed in response. Running mate Tim Kaine stood behind her, clapping.
The former First Lady had earlier gone through a similar coughing fit during a February 17 speech about race, in Harlem, New York. On January 25, she suffered another during an Iowa address at the Jewish Federation of Greater Des Moines, according to CNN.
After the event, campaign aides attributed the coughing fit to allergies.
On the other hand, Donald Trump’s campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, took advantage of the moment to criticize the Democratic candidate because of her distance from the media. This included a full-blown press conference that was never organized by the Democratic nominee since last December.
“Must be allergic to media. Finally spent a minute w/ them,” Conway wrote.
It has been reported by Morning News USA that Barack Obama’s former doctor, Dr. David Scheiner, said that the former First Lady must go through a neurological exam because of her history of brain injury.
Apart from Obama’s former doctor, there were ten other doctors who made statements along the same lines. Almost all doctors asked for a complete evaluation of images and videos that have come up regarding her health. According to these doctors, voters have every right to know about the details on Hillary Clinton’s health.
