Skip to comments.Team Hillary Puts Media On Notice To Not Question Her Health

Shes working the refs, and, since most of them are in the bag for her, itll probably work, especially since the majority are already defending Coughing Hillary against any charges or just wonderings regarding her health.
(The Hill) Hillary Clintons campaign is working the refs hard when it comes to reports about her health.
While Clinton responded to a fit of coughing this week with humor, saying she was allergic to GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump, her aides and surrogates played the role of bad cop.
Campaign spokesman Nick Merrill took to task an NBC reporter who wrote about the coughing spell, posting on Twitter that the writer should get a life.
But, she keeps having these coughing fits. They arent unusual. They arent short.
The pushback signaled that Clintons campaign intends to sharply counterattack news organizations that take questions about her health seriously.
Theyre trying to work the refs a little bit as they try to push back on the mainstream medias willingness to pick up on some of this stuff thats usually left to the fringes, Clinton surrogate Jim Manley explained.
So, instead of showing documents that she is healthy, and there is a good reason for the constant coughing which would send most of us running to the doctor, theyre going to attack and, most likely, attempt to destroy any who bring it up. She told the FBI 39 times that she couldnt recall because of her concussion. She has a lot of falls. These arent conspiracy theories. Theyre facts.
Do they show a picture of a woman in good health? One thing you can bet on, Americans love a good conspiracy, and they will be asking if Team Hillary is pushing back hard on the allegations while refusing to debunk them with her health records, might there be something there?
I think the media deserves to be beat up on this because I think its ridiculous. I really doubt that any American really cares about this, said Democratic strategist Brad Bannon.
This is as trivial as you can get. The media deserves pushback for giving so much coverage to this thing, he added.
Au contraire. Citizens very much care about this. More read news about celebrity doings than politics, and they certainly care if a candidate is portraying poor health symptoms. Americans spend a lot of time on trivial things. Trivial things that seem important to them. Perhaps they arent much concern to the political elites, but citizens care. They care when their favorite celebrity is exhibiting signs of physical or mental illness, even when its just part of their favorite TV show. And the more Team Hillary attempts to obfuscate and Blamestorm, the more the media attempts to provide shelter, the more they will focus on this issue and wonder whats she hiding? Thats the nature of humanity.
The health of a candidate is important, is it not? And it is certainly legitimate to ask questions when she hasnt released her medical records. Trump, again, should do the same. Were electing someone to the most power position in the world, and we should know that shes up for the job, which ages a person tremendously, and requires enormous physical and mental stamina.
Finally, lets consider that some media will take this as a challenge to their livelihood, and say to hell with my Clinton supporting colleagues, Ill get the information.
well, its back to asking why she’s sold out American defenses and our security to her IslamoNazi enemy Muslim dictatorship contributors, then
“Team Clintoon” knows that the old **tch is about to croak and still are hoping for her to win the White House FOR THEM. They don’t shive a git if she croaks as long as he does it after the election. Scum.
I prefer to call them, Cabal Clinton.

Squelch any talk about the health of the future Queen.
What is a “ref”? That term is used a lot but never defined.
And if she passes out and keels over? Will they be able to ask then?
None of these vile apologists understands the core values and tenets of journalism. They are either under blackmail or are political prostitutes and will be remembered for their birthing the end of the U.S. republic. If a few of them had backbones, and that includes congress members, they could save the country. Please do, please do. And do it now.
Too late...everyone knows both her character, her lying and the sickness they can see with their own eyes. Hillary doesn’t fool anyone. Those who support her do so only because in one way or another they think their pockets are lined by her politics. No one is fooled...bought off, yes, fooled by her, no.
In the context of the story probably referee. Who’s supposed to be neutral.
This lady had a long history of some very serious drinking. Much of her affect is consistent with someone who has drank heavily for a period of time, has forced themselves to sober up for a period to work or deal with people. She looks tired, anxious and desperate for the event she is attending to end. If you ever had a boss or an associate who was an alcoholic, see if Hillary’s behavior and affect reminds you of times they hadn’t had a drink for more than twelve hours.
Referee. In sports, “working the refs” is encouraging them to see things your way.
I think they mean referee like in sports.
Or else what?
ILLARY.....the H is missing for a reason.
Wants to be like a North Korean dictator, if you question ANYTHING about her its off to the firing squad!
Count among these people running interference for Hitlery’s health problems. Bill O’Reilly and Bernard Goldberg says her constant coughing does not matter. It is really annoying to drr FMC march in lockstep with the Liberal media. And what about Hitlery’s lesion on her tongue? Syphilis?
