Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton can no longer feign to be "feeling great" after doctors reveal her distressed condition to be the result of a case of mild pneumonia. Although confirmed on Friday, a whole day prior to the release of video footage showing the candidate loosing consciousness and collapsing into the arms of nearby guards in front of her van at the September 11th commemoration on Sunday.
Clinton, 68, shares the spotlight with many other candidates and even presidents whose health issues involved the concern glances of the public eye. President John F. Kennedy, former candidate John McCain, and President Franklin D. Roosevelt openly disclosed their health issues that occurred during campaigns or while in office. However, the key concern is placed on the seemingly strategic method to conceal Clinton's state of health and health information before, during, and after the incident occurred.
Concerns about the candidate's health began as early as February of this year, stemming from a concussion that occurred nearly four years ago, which later led to various commentary on occasions when Clinton would have a coughing spell. Adding to the mounting suspicions resulting from the Benghazi attack and private email controversy, there is growing concern that if elected as president, Clinton will proceed to withhold information of her choosing from the nation.
Nevertheless, the public has more information regarding Clinton's health, than Republican candidate Donald Trump's tax returns.
