This is not Clinton's first health scare in 2012 she fainted at home and hit her head suffering a concussion. At the time her age and State Department staffers downplayed the severity of the injury it turns out Clinton had double vision and wore special glasses.

That's so in that first video you see Secretary Clinton being helped into the van by several people repeat come off the ground she doesn't appear to be able to walk on her own. That can be caused by many things but as a doctor what I find reassuring is that two hours later she was able to go outside and greet people. Hillary Clinton is 68 how serious is pneumonia for someone her age well pneumonia can be very serious some forms there or are quite ill and inland someone in the hospital others are mild. And some are even contagious it is quite relevant to what happened today at the memorial but he clearly hasn't been enough to keep brought the campaigned for a doctor investor thank you.

And the problem for her feeds two story lines of Donald Trump one about her health. Does she have the stamina it feeds that storyline but secondly it feeds the story line is she transparent he is she open.
