[VIDEO] Bill Clinton Comments On Hillary’s Fainting Episode…” It Has Happened “On More Than One Occassion”

The daily headlines have been all about Hillary and her coughing fits, now she has passed out, and Bill Clinton has confirmed that Sunday’s “medical episode” was not Hillary’s first. She has fainted on previous occasions. I am not one to say that she shouldn’t run for President. We don’t know what is wrong with her, but if she is in serious crisis, she needs to be transparent about her condition.

From Daily Caller:

Bill Clinton’s attempt on Monday at downplaying his wife’s recent fainting spell may have backfired.

During an interview with CBS News’ Charlie Rose, the former president said that Hillary Clinton has “on more than one occasion” had a fainting episode after becoming “severely dehydrated.”

The former first lady nearly fell on the ground on Sunday — after possibly blacking out — after she was forced to leave a 9/11 memorial service. Her campaign claimed she was “overheated” and that she did not lose consciousness. It was only after video surfaced of Clinton going wobbly that the campaign issued a statement from her doctor acknowledging that she was diagnosed with pneumonia on Friday.

Rose asked Bill Clinton if the episode indicates that his wife has more serious medical issues.

“Well if it is, it’s a mystery to me and all of her doctors,” he responded.

“Because frequently,” Clinton began, according to CBS’ website, before correcting himself, “well not frequently, rarely — but on more than one occasion, over the last many, many years, the same sort of thing happened to her when she got severely dehydrated.”
