Editorial: How healthy is Hillary Clinton?

Is Hillary Clinton healthy enough to be president?

America can’t make that judgment without seeing her medical records and she refuses to release them. Her husband, former President Bill Clinton, never released his medical charts unlike his predecessors.

Mrs. Clinton would turn 70 in office. An informal Internet survey by the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons showed that 71 percent of those doctors surveyed suspect that Mrs. Clinton has “serious” health problems that could disqualify her for serving as president.

She had pneumonia – a fact that her campaign tried to hide from the voting public until she fainted at a 9/11 ceremony.

A pair of recent coughing fits heightened those concerns. We do know that she has suffered a concussion while she was Secretary of State but thanks to the protection of the liberal media, few know that she has cerebral sinus thrombosis and deep venous thrombosis. As we learn more about the ongoing problems with concussions, this raises more issues.

These are serious concerns for someone who wants to be commander-in-chief of the American military and who would have the ability to launch a nuclear attack (or even a conventional engagement). Another troubling admission by Clinton is her “loss of memory” when she was interviewed by the FBI concerning the breach of national security with her email situation while she was Secretary of State.

In contrast, Donald Trump, who is 70, looks the picture of good health. He doesn’t smoke and he doesn’t drink and he seems to have no problem with a busy campaign schedule.

There are plenty of good reasons to not vote for Mrs. Clinton. She is adamantly pro-abortion. She wants to raise taxes on the middle class. She promotes homosexual marriage and she wants to downsize the military. She would essentially be a third term for Barack Obama.

But American voters need to know the truth about her health before they go to the polls on November 8.
