Trump supporters have been foaming at the mouth for weeks with conspiracy theories that Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s health is too poor for her to be running for president.
And they thought they got their wish on Sunday, when Hillary became dehydrated at a New York City 9/11 ceremony and had to leave early. The thing is, though, Hillary is a human being, and right now, like every political candidate, her schedule is grueling. She is human, and she got sick. She was apparently recently diagnosed with pneumonia. A serious illness that will take time to recover from, sure, but not remotely disqualifying.
That hasn’t stopped many on the right and some on the left from pushing a story that the Democratic National Committee is trying to replace her at the top of the Democratic Party’s presidential ticket.
DNC acting chairperson Donna Brazile put this absurd conspiracy theory to rest, though, when she released the following statement:
“I am glad to learn that Secretary Clinton is already feeling better and I wish her a speedy recovery. I look forward to seeing her back out on the campaign trail and continuing the path to victory.”

The sad part is that the despicable excuses for human beings that are Donald Trump’s supporters actually want something to be seriously wrong with Hillary. Trump surrogates and hosts on Fox News have been sounding the alarm en masse for months now that Hillary is too unhealthy to be president. It’s their only real argument, because their guy is dangerously unqualified and they know it. At the end of the day, they can in no way prove that anything is wrong with Hillary Clinton.
She’s like any human, and gets sick. She’s fine, and she’ll be our next POTUS, make no mistake. Remember folks, VOTE BLUE to keep conspiracy theorists out of office.
