Patterico's Pontifications


*Cough* Hillary Having a *Cough* Hard Time These *Cough* Days

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 7:24 am

Painful to watch. I have been prone to coughing fits like this myself, though never in front of thousands of people. I imagine it’s tough to get through a talk this way. But, as commonplace as a coughing fit like this can be, she has to be dreading that it might hit during a debate. Given the state of our electorate, there’s no doubt that one coughing fit lasting even a third as long as this during a debate would do her in.

Meanwhile, for the fraction who care more about substance, here is Ben Shapiro noting all the new evidence showing Hillary’s criminal intent. A sample:

1. Hillary Used TONS Of Different Devices. According to the FBI, Hillary used at least 13 mobile devices “associated with her two known phone numbers.” That blows up her original lie that she set up a private server so that she could use one email address and one device.

2. Her Aides Destroyed Her Old Blackberrys…Or Lost Them. The FBI report states that Hillary’s aides were tasked with discarding of Hillary’s SIM cards when she’d switch devices – but “[Huma] Abedin and [Monica] Hanley indicated the whereabouts of Clinton’s devices would frequently become unknown once she transitioned to a new device.” According to another aide, he destroyed Hillary’s cellphones by hitting them with a hammer.

3. Hillary Told The FBI She Had No Idea How Classified Intelligence Worked. Yes, that’s right – the Most Qualified Candidate In World History™ admitted to the FBI that she had no idea how classification worked. The FBI explained, “Clinton could not give an example of how classification of a document was determined…[she] did not recall receiving any emails she thought should not be on an unclassified system.” She even said that a classified email regarding a drone strike in Pakistan didn’t present a problem: “Clinton stated deliberation over a future drone strike did not give her cause for concern regarding classification.”

4. Hillary Hid 17,448 Work Related Emails From The State Department. The FBI reported that they’d “recovered from additional data sources and reviewed approximately 17,448 unique work-related and personal e-mails from Clinton’s tenure.” Hillary has claimed that she turned over all work-related emails and was fully transparent.

Nah, forget substance. A new online poll taken over 21 days shows Trump doing well. Release the hounds.

  4. I take it taht the cough and the otehr things stopped when the video ends. She was drinking water in an attempt to stop it. It was persistent. Her voice almost gave out too, a few times. And she would make remarks about it being allergies. It doesn’t sound like something very serious, just maybe a bit persistent. She may have had it for a week or more.

    The substance of what she was saying, or trying to say, was, I think, pure nonsense.

    She had some union leaders with her whom she mentioned, and Randy Weingarten of the American federation of teachers had first mention, even though the president of the AFL-CIO, Richard trumka, was also there. But she got teh honor of being mentioned first.

    Do people realize how much against improved education the American Federation of Teachers is? People ought to long for the days of Albert Shanker.

  5. “Painful to watch……But, as commonplace as a coughing fit like this can be…”

    Writing this off as ‘commonplace’ is bunk.

    Maudie’s been having episodes like this literally for months. And it ain’t because coughing up truths are caught in her throat. Something is off with her and the pushback whenever questioned is often excessive. Witness the direct question asked to her on Kimmel’s show a few weeks ago- “Is your health good?” Her response was classic Clinton squirrel-speak: ‘Take my pulse’ then play with a pickle jar. Cute. But she never answered the direct question with a direct answer ‘yes.’

    There’s no conspiracy to ponder about this. In 1960 the Kennedy campaign team insisted JFK was in excellent health and ‘vigorously‘ denied he suffered from Addison’s Disease. They even had doctor’s notes.

    They lied.

  6. Even a Vogue article about Huma mentioned Hillary’s clearing of her throat constantly. There’s something wrong.

  7. Found the quote, describing her speech at the convention.
