Reuters: Clinton campaign says it could have better handled health scare

Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign acknowledged on Monday that it mishandled a health scare for the Democratic candidate and promised to release additional medical details in the coming days, a pledge Republican rival Donald Trump made as well.

Clinton, 68, canceled a trip to California to recuperate from pneumonia, but her campaign drew criticism for waiting two days to reveal that diagnosis, a move that reinforced concerns about what critics view as a tendency toward secrecy.

“I think that in retrospect, we could have handled it better in terms of providing more information more quickly," Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon told MSNBC.

The so called smartest woman in thew world, who has pneumonia was in close proximity to a little girl to show everyone she was alright.

What a moron!

We were told that it was virally caused pneumonia and not bacterially caused.

Since it was viral pneumonia Hillary could not pass it to the little girl?

Is this some sort of special virus?

So has she had pneumonia for the last 4 years or were all the other coughing and fainting spells just allergies or something else? There are still so many questions about what's really wrong with her and why it is being hidden, imagine if no one had caught this last episode on video, it would have just been denied as conspiracy theory hog wash...
