By now, you’ve probably heard the news that Hillary Clinton’s health took a turn for the worse this weekend when she stepped out of a September 11 memorial service after feeling overheated. We were later informed by the treating physician that Clinton has a case of pneumonia but is recovering nicely.
Of course, the Internet freaked out.

Release more health information:

Although I’d remind readers that Clinton has made some recent disclosures. And that gathering up medical records from different hospitals isn’t an easy feat for anyone thanks to our extremely broken health care system.
The baller move would be for Hillary to release an extremely detailed mental health evaluation. https://t.co/Zq0ojNecZC

Is it now fair to talk about the candidates’ health on the campaign trail?
Hey @TheFix – can Hillary’s health be a considered a valid issue for the media to cover now? My father never fainted on the campaign trail.
