I was at the beach this weekend, and this is apparently what happened while I was out:
Thursday: Hillary’s not sick.
Saturday: Right wingnuts still spreading crazy wingnut conspiracy theories about Hillary being sick, what a basket of deplorables.
Sunday: Hillary nearly passes out at a 9-11 Memorial Ceremony and has to be rushed off by her security detail. Despite a massive media presence, the only person to capture video of the barely conscious Democrat is an amateur with a video camera. Hillary’s people first spin that she got “overheated” on a 78 degree morning with a low humidity index. Hillary’s people quickly stage a photo op with a little girl in front of Chelsea’s apartment to prove she is completely, totally, 100% fine. (Right-Wing nut cases this was not actually Hillary, but a “body-double,” possibly an android-replicant built by the Clinton Foundation.) By evening, they have changed their spin again to claim that Hillary is suffering from “pneumonia.” (So, is the little photo-op girl going to be checked, or…?)
Monday: OMG, you guys, Hillary is totally a hero for bravely campaigning even though she’s totally sick with pneumonia .
Yeah, the next four years should be just filled with executive transparency and media honesty.
I semi-enjoyed the beach, if anyone cares.
Update: One Obama crony is not impressed: “Antibiotics can take care of pneumonia. What’s the cure for an unhealthy penchant for privacy that repeatedly creates unnecessary problems?” – David Axelrod
