Every time we think Donald Trump has gone as low as he could possibly go, he proves us wrong. He peddles in conspiracy theories. And now he and his surrogates are lying about Hillary’s health. There simply is no bottom with this guy.
Sunday morning, one of Trump’s favorite lap dogs, Rudy Giuliani, was on Fox News Sunday. Among the many lies that Giuliani told was an outrageous conspiracy theory about Hillary Clinton’s health. And even when Shannon Bream, the Fox host tried to correct him, Giuliani insisted that the Trump team was correct in saying that Clinton was in terrible health. And thus, she’s unfit to run for President.
And his proof? (You’re gonna love this one.) He claims all you have to do is Google Hillary and illness to find the proof. Yes, seriously. Apparently, for Giuliani and Trump, every outrageous conspiracy theory on the internet is hard fact.
RUDY GIULIANI….“She doesn’t need to campaign. She has The New York Times, she has the [New York] Daily News, she has ABC, she has CBS, she has NBC. She has an entire media empire that constantly demonizes Donald Trump and fails to point out that she hasn’t had a press conference in 300 days, 200 days, 100 days, I don’t know how long. Fails to point out several signs of illness by her. All you got to do is go online. All you have to do –“
(HOST)….“Which her campaign and a number of people defending her saying there’s nothing factual to the claims about her health, and that that’s speculation at best.”
GIULIANI….“Go online and put down Hillary Clinton illness and take a look at the videos for yourself….All you gotta do is go online.”
And Giuliani is not the only Trump surrogate who is pushing this narrative.
Trump’s national spokesperson, Katrina Pierson, is also pushing this lie. She was on MSNBC on Friday insisting that Hillary is sick.
PIERSON….”What’s new are the other reports of the observations of Hillary Clinton’s behavior and mannerisms….specifically what you just showed in those previous clips as well as her dysphagia…the fact that she’s fallen…she has had a concussion–“
(HOST)….“Wait, hold on. There’s no indication that she’s fallen. Let’s just step back for one second. We did get this reaction from her doctor. I just wanna read that to you. Who says quote ‘As Secretary Clinton’s long time physician I released a medical statement during the campaign indicating that she is in excellent health. I have recently been made aware of allegedly leaked medical documents regarding Secretary Clinton with my name on them. These documents are false, were not written by me and are not based on any medical facts. To reiterate what I said in my previous statement, Secretary Clinton is in excellent health and fit to serve as President of the United States.'”
“So these health questions have been debunked Katrina, and yet Donald Trump continues to try to stir them up. Is that responsible for someone who’s running for President?”
Now what Katrina Pierson should’ve said next was “NO.” But instead she continued to lie about Clinton’s health. And she claimed that Hillary is being forced to continually take time off her campaign because she is so sick.
If you can stomach it, take a look at these two short clips. They really are extraordinary. And unfortunately, I think they are an indication that this whole election is going to go even further into the gutter before it’s all said and done.
