Hillary Clinton’s wobbly early departure from a Sept. 11 memorial ceremony on Sunday came as she was suffering from pneumonia, according to her physician, Dr. Lisa R. Bardack.

Here’s what you need to know about pneumonia:


What is it?

Pneumonia is an infection of the lungs.  That infection can be relatively mild, but it can also be severe.

  • What pneumonia, the chest looks clear to me ? I saw a glimpse of Hillary being assisted into a black van, with a wide stanced and ataxic gait. She was hanging onto a male in a suit as if she was about to pass out. My opinion and the standard of care is she needed to be admitted into a medical facility for a cardiac event or central nervous system insult. Suggestions were she was taken to her daughters’ apartment for further evaluation ? Really, as a Board Certified Emergency Physician that would be malpractice and I suspect there is much more to this event. B Rgds

    • Your opinion is totally irrelevant as you did not examine the patient. Unless you think watching ten seconds of video footage shot from a distance qualifies as an examination.

      Also, Hillary decided where she would go after she left the event. If she chose to go to her daughter’s house, so what? Do you think her doctor was traveling with her making all the decisions?

      Whether “capital B-oard capital C-ertified capital E-mergency capital P-hysician” or not, your opinion is crap.

  • Tried to fake everybody out by not admitting it Friday. How many fake outs will there be if she is POTUS? Transparent my arse. If she wins she’ll beat Obummer for worst ever. Clinton was a terrible Secretary – how can anyone consider her for Commander-In-Chief?
    Obama believed the mullahs – thus the nuke deal that Hillary supported. The worst Commander-in-chief ever. Decimated the military – losing to Putin and China besides ISIS who he says are just criminal terrorists – not Islamist. The idiot and HILLARY removed troops from freed IRAQ with the Butcher and his 2 evil sons gone – 4500 dead and 32000 wounded USA troops plus thousands more with mental issues for nothing. That led to Al Qaeda and ISIS advances so now we have almost 5000 troops back. We have troops in over 40 countries including Kuwait after Desert Storm. That red line claim on chemical use and not followed up in Syria – along with debacles in Egypt supporting Muslim Brotherhood, and of course ousting Qadaffi in Libya that led to four dead Americans in Benghazi. He would have been impeached for lying about Benghazi to get reelected if he wasn’t half black.

    • For one answer to your question, might I suggest that you read the “LETTERS” section of today’s Globe; in particular, the one by a professor of chemical engineering at Tufts?

      I would also suggest that you take each of your statements and Google it, then select a reputable, well-thought-of source to check your opinions. Maybe by this time, you have also read the material re: asking yourself four questions questions, changing/solidifying opinions and voting. It’s quite informative. Good Luck!
