So let's clear up a few things up.

First off Hillary Clinton did not get sick in a vacuum.

Courtesy of People: 

The illness that sickened Hillary Clinton with pneumonia and caused her to have to be escorted away from September 11 ceremonies in New York on Sunday also struck down several members of her campaign team at Clinton headquarters in Brooklyn, PEOPLE has learned. 

 "Everyone's been sick," a campaign source tells PEOPLE. 

At the end of August, two weeks before Clinton was diagnosed with pneumonia, a debilitating bug was making the rounds among staff at her headquarters and campaign aides who travel with Clinton, a source tells PEOPLE. 

Secondly Hillary is not the first presidential candidate to campaign with pneumonia.

Courtesy of Garnet News:  

Hillary Clinton is not the only candidate to experience this illness. In 2004 John Kerry also developed “walking pneumonia.” 

From an email he wrote to the New York Times in 2008, “I remember on the bus in Iowa, my staff thought I’d broken a rib from coughing because my walking pneumonia was so bad.”

Do you remember how the press freaked out about Kerry's illness, and claimed that campaign was over and he needed to be replaced at the top of the ticket?

No you don't. And that it because John Kerry was a man, and Hillary is held to a completely different and unfair standard.

You can deny it if you want, but the evidence is overwhelming.

And speaking of different standards: 

For 18 months, Republican strategists, political pundits, reporters and Americans who follow them have been pursuing Hillary Clinton’s personal email habits, and no evidence of a crime has been found. But now they at least have the skills and interest to focus on a much larger and deeper email conspiracy, one involving war, lies, a private server run by the Republican Party and contempt of Congress citations—all of it still unsolved and unpunished. 

Clinton’s email habits look positively transparent when compared with the subpoena-dodging, email-hiding, private-server-using George W. Bush administration. Between 2003 and 2009, the Bush White House “lost” 22 million emails. This correspondence included millions of emails written during the darkest period in America’s recent history, when the Bush administration was ginning up support for what turned out to be a disastrous war in Iraq with false claims that the country possessed weapons of mass destruction (WMD), and, later, when it was firing U.S. attorneys for political reasons. 

Like Clinton, the Bush White House used a private email server—its was owned by the Republican National Committee. And the Bush administration failed to store its emails, as required by law, and then refused to comply with a congressional subpoena seeking some of those emails.

So was the Bush administration the focus of numerous Congressional investigations,  culminating with the former president being called to testify as to why he and his staff destroyed evidence and defied the law?


Why not?

Because they are Republicans and fuck you, that's why not!

Remember Republicans do not believe in accountability unless it has to do with the Democrats. And that goes triple if their first name is "Hillary."

      For gods sake - there is NO such thing as anti-seizure glasses. JFC - seizures are triggered in the brain, not in the eyes!

      Her glasses were for the aftermath of the concussion - likely prism glasses to correct her sight, which is now normal.

      Believe me - IF she were having seizures the whole world would know it - and talk about it in the news everyday, without let up. She has never had a seizure.

      She does not like to drink water, per those who surround her. All she needs to do is drink fluids and she wouldn't have any dizzy spells. Dehydration - period. Ask anyone who suffers from it. Drink!

      I dislike Trump more tban I can express, and KNOW he would be bad for the country. However, I also don't like Hilary. I do think the media is doing their job with either candidate, and need to get their head out of their hind parts, and be tough on both candidstes. Neither has felt the true weight of the media, as it should be.

    The House Judiciary Committee Democrats urged the Department of Justice to investigate the Trump Foundation donations to Florida A.G. Pam Bondi Tuesday.

    Citing the concern of several editorial boards – including the Tampa Bay Times, the Sun Sentinel, and the Washington Post – that have called for the feds to investigate the Trump-Bondi connection, House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member John Conyers, Jr. (D-MI) wrote a letter requesting that DOJ Attorney General Loretta Lynch investigate “allegations of bribery and other criminal misconduct concerning the $25,000 donation from the Donald J. Trump Foundation to Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi.”

    The letter, signed by every Democratic member of the House Judiciary Committee, read in part “…It has been reported that Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi personally solicited a political contribution from Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump while her office deliberated joining an investigation of fraud at Trump University.”

    “…After receiving these funds, Mrs. Bondi declined to further investigate Mr. Trump’s business interests. This fact pattern indicates that these payments may have influenced Mrs. Bondi’s official decision not to participate in litigation against Mr. Trump. A number of criminal statutes would appear to be implicated by this course of conduct.”

    Coverage of Hillary Clinton during this campaign has been stomach churning. Ridiculous standards few human beings could meet are set and then when Clinton delivers, the goal posts are moved so that she still fails. Each day, talking heads and keyboard hacks who could never measure up to the standards they set, lay in wait to judge every little thing about Clinton as if she is prey. It isn’t her proposed policies they judge. It isn’t her actual record. It is her value as a human being that gets ripped to shreds on a daily basis.

    She can’t speak right. Her hand gestures are suspicious. She doesn’t smile enough or she smiles the wrong way. She can’t take bathroom breaks right. She can’t dress right. She isn’t authentic enough. When she authentically jokes around, she has a debilitating disease. She isn’t accessible enough to the media. When she is accessible, she must be desperate. She made a mistake, she should own up to it. She owns up to mistakes and she is a failure.

    Her guilt is decided in advance and all eyes watch until the tiniest misstep — real or perceived — validates them.

    Unlike any male candidate, ever, she is forced to bare her soul again and again and again. Her life is an open book but that still isn’t enough. She is holding back from us. She must be. If the media can’t find something, it will just cherry pick information and make it up. Issues don’t matter. Policies don’t matter. Substance doesn’t matter. It is all about the “optics” of a moment in time.

    It is relentless.

    It is exhausting.

    It is abusive.

      Every women recognizes what is being done to Hillary, as we've all experienced it in some form ourselves. I hope this means Hillary can count on a solid block of female voters.

      Imagine if the roles were reversed: If we had a female Trump and a male Hillary Clinton, Ms. Trump would have been laughed out of the arena long ago as completely unprepared and we'd all be talking about what a wonderful candidate we have in Hillary Clinton.

      Even this week's New Yorker, which is a media outlet that I normally admire very much and have for decades, won't let up on Hillary Clinton. Their first "Talk of the Town" item is about Clinton's pneumonia and twice, once in the body of the article and in the last paragraph, there is the whining repetition that people don't trust her.

      Was Clinton supposed to predict that her doctor would tell her Friday that the persistent cough was pneumonia? And then, was she supposed to spend Saturday meeting with the press to spread the word that she had pneumonia? Good grief! Of course many people who rely on Fox News and almost any other news outlet still don't trust her because the media keeps telling them not to at every opportunity. All the while ignoring Trump's lies, distortions and crazy behavior.

      The candidate I don't trust is Donald Trump. Nor do I trust any other Republicans, no matter how much sheep's clothing they wear. And I don't trust the US media either, and now that sadly includes The New Yorker until the magazine proves that it has what it takes to treat Hillary Clinton properly.

    President Obama appeared for Hillary Clinton in Philadelphia, giving the kind of barnburner speech that he's best at, making the case for an optimistic campaign for America's future. In his usual discussion of the strengths of Clinton and how Trump disqualifies himself on a daily basis, Obama was most forceful in calling out the traditional media: "We can not afford suddenly to treat this like a reality show. We can't afford to act as if there's some equivalence here."

    He railed, as much as Obama rails, at the professional media for the "frivolous stuff that gets covered everyday." He directly addressed the "guys in the back," saying, "I'm just telling you the truth about how I feel about this. Do you mind if I just vent for a second?" Then he unloaded: "You know, you don't grade the presidency on a curve. This is serious business."

    ‘Deplorables': Can the media ever get it right?

    ...From Clinton’s perspective, this is hardly a gaffe. It is more like a home run. If the story of the day or week involves debating whether 15 or 50 percent of Trump’s supporters are racists and reiterating his association with white nationalists, that is a win for Clinton. Those who find themselves in agreement with the same positions and loyalties as David Duke might want to reconsider their positions and loyalties.

    Trump and running mate Mike Pence can save their crocodile tears and feigned outrage. Trump has spent over a year painting groups with a broad brush and swatting away critics as too “politically correct.” He does not like his followers being held guilty by association with him? Maybe he should consider abjectly apologizing for each of his outrageous smears, insults and stereotypes. If not, his apologists should be called out for defending a candidate who holds such noxious views. He can stomp his foot all he likes, but it is about time someone starting holding him and his defenders accountable. If they don’t like what they see in the mirror, it is not Clinton’s fault for calling attention to the ugly spectacle on the right.

    Washington Post
    ... The last time information from Donald Trump’s income-tax returns was made public, the bottom line was striking: He had paid the federal government $0 in income taxes.

    The disclosure, in a 1981 report by New Jersey gambling regulators, revealed that the wealthy Manhattan investor had for at least two years in the late 1970s taken advantage of a tax-code provision popular with developers that allowed him to report negative income.

    Today, as the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, Trump regularly denounces corporate executives for using loopholes and “false deductions” to “get away with murder” when it comes to avoiding taxes.

    “They make a fortune. They pay no tax,” Trump said last year on CBS. “It’s ridiculous, okay?”

    I have an aunt who got sick the same time as Hillary. It turned into pneumonia. My aunt is the same age as Hillary and just as independent. She was on the go for the whole month of August busy with her life and family, and then we all caught a cold. The younger ones fought theirs off, I just barely, and my aunt was going, going, going, until her husband made her go get it checked out. Now, she's trying to sit back and relax but she is rearing to go. Today is the last day of her antibiotics and then she's off. Hillary is like many of us who just don't like do sit still for a cold. It's inconvenient because we have things to do, and places to go.
