Hillary Clinton Medically Unfit to Serve as U.S. President?
• Is Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton unfit to serve in the White House due to apparent medical issues? A number of doctors, medical experts, and one-time confidants have come forward to claim that Mrs. Clinton likely has neurological problems that are being covered up by her campaign and the mainstream media.

While billionaire Republican presidential candidate Donald J. Trump was in Louisiana this weekend touring damage from days of heavy flooding, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was reportedly “resting” for a few days, worn out from a spate of townhall gatherings and campaign stops. Trump, who is 70-years-old, seems to have boundless energy, but Mrs. Clinton, who is a year younger than Trump, often appears lethargic and sickly, leaving some objective observers to consider whether she suffers from a serious illness that is being covered up.
The Clinton scandals aside, which should be enough to bar her from seeking the White House, there are reasonable concerns about Mrs. Clinton’s health.
Over the years, the mainstream media has published a number of articles on and photographs of Mrs. Clinton that showed apparent health problems, accidental falls, and even some bizarre behavior possibly indicating brain issues.
In perhaps one of the worst, on December 17, 2012, Mrs. Clinton, while serving as secretary of state, fell and suffered a concussion. Later, it was reported that Mrs. Clinton had a blood clotting problem in her sinuses for which she takes medication, but many people remain highly skeptical of that diagnosis.
Recently, in videos shot at campaign rallies, Mrs. Clinton can be seen shaking, then appears frozen as if her brain short circuited and is confused before laughing inappropriately.
Of late, several respected doctors have come forward to say that Mrs. Clinton looks “seriously ill” and “really sick.”
Dr. Drew Pinsky, a doctor who is well known for treating celebrities in California, was recently interviewed on a national radio station. Pinksy said he is “gravely concerned . . . not just about her health but her healthcare,” after he took a look at the medical records the Clinton campaign released to the public.
Pinsky went on to describe her reactions as “bizarre” before adding that Hillary’s medical condition was “dangerous” and “concerning.”
Perhaps the most damning assessment comes from Dr. Jane M. Orient, a medical doctor and executive director of the conservative Association of American Physicians and Surgeons.
On August 10, Dr. Orient issued a withering statement on Mrs. Clinton, questioning whether the former New York senator is fit to serve as president due to her apparent health issues.
“While we don’t have Mrs. Clinton’s medical records, it is widely stated that she experienced a fall that caused a concussion. Since then, she is sometimes seen wearing eyeglasses with prisms, as are used to correct double vision,” wrote Dr. Orient. “While the U.S. government knows more and more about our medical histories and other aspects of our lives, many details about the president are a secret. The press appears to care more about the tax returns of Republican candidates than the medical records of Democrat presidents or candidates. And Secretary Clinton’s public appearances have been rather carefully controlled.”
Others have come forward to say that Mrs. Clinton appears to be suffering from Parkinson’s Disease, a progressive disorder that affects the nervous system and often leads to uncontrolled shaking.
