Pneumonia is actually a fitting end for this whole medical episode hysteria.

For rational voters and people not on the Trump train, Hillary was suffering from a relatable illness and not some mysterious. undisclosed condition as the Trumpers would like to point out. Now the Press will bitch about not being notified, but most people will see this for what it was, someone sick overexerting themselves when they should have been recovering.

1. I think you could be right. Pneumonia,on antibiotics and recovering is

not as titillating to Trumpsters as the mystery death-bed scenario.

3. Actually you would have to be strong....

physically, mentally and in really good general health to keep going at Hillary's pace for the last month and do it with pneumonia...which was brewing a while before she was diagnosed. I have had pneumonia and it is hard, hard to keep going at even a normal schedule. Lots of folks have had this experience...and will not only identify with what she has been going through, but be really impressed with her amazing stamina to do so.

5. It is a satisfactory answer for rational citizens, of course.

Like me too.

I was just visiting a certain forum, though, to see what some of the die-hard Hillary Deranged are saying. Not exactly to my surprise, many are far too savvy to be fooled by this phony "pneumonia" story. MS and Parkinson's seem to leading in popularity, but syphilitic brain lesions, vascular dementia, and alcoholism, as well as others, are on the list. One person's sure she's chronically catheterized because of incontinence, in support of some theory or other. (This is all from just one of the threads.)

In any case, many are all excited, believing that Hillary "just became unelectable" or will have to drop out due to terminal illness and that Bernie Sanders will be carried into the White House on The People's shoulders past the evil Democratic Party's Tim Kaine. Or something like that. The America-was-lost-long-ago crowd are sure evil establishment powers will elect Hillary's dead body if needed and rule over it.

They're having fun their way. And I mine, of course.

6. Yes, I also read some of those amazing and enthusiastic proclamations of Hillary's demise.

One said he kept watching the video over and over with headphones on and was sure he saw something metal fall from her pant leg. You could hear it clank 10 seconds into the video! That was a yuuuuuge discovery. edit: I watched and saw nothing.

9. So typical of them, isn't it? They can't even keep up with their own BS.

10. I had this...and felt tired but not really sick.

One day I collapsed...my hubs rushed me to the doctor who gave me a shot...came close to being hospitalized as it had gone on for quite a while. I made a full recovery and have no problems today. I was not over 60 either. This can hit people of any age.

11. You are so right! Everyone has had some sort of experience with this...

either themselves, a loved one or friend or co-worker. It is not a mystery and it certainly is not unusual to try and power through it as if it was just a bad cold.

12. It's not going to sway anyone

Hannity and FOX will still be saying it's a big deal and there are other bigger health issues they are not telling us. Her supporters don't care either way. The undecideds now have a reasonable explanation for her coughing and for her almost fainting.

Unreasonable people will still be unreasonable. I think this as an explanation helps her.

13. Just one more way in which Hillary Clinton has to do it backward in high heels.

I was pulling for her to get right back out to that ceremony, whatever was wrong, and was all down about her seeming to take the rest of the day off.

Just hope she's permitting herself enough rest for a quick recovery.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump continues to coast.
