DW: Clinton, Trump to release medical records

Hillary Clinton's campaign has said it will disclose new medical records after the revelation she has pneumonia. Donald Trump is also expected to release his medical records in the coming days.

Hillary Clinton on Monday sought to control the fallout from a media swirl around her health after she wobbled away from a 9/11 ceremony and her campaign said she had pneumonia.

The incident on Sunday raised questions drummed up by Republicans in recent months over her health and a purported penchant for secrecy and lack of transparency.

"People get pneumonia all the time," Republican Senator Roger Wicker of Mississippi said in an interview with the Politico news blog, adding, "It is absolutely a natural impulse of her staff to dissemble and lie, and it is just astounding."

Maybe I'm off base on this, but every clip I've seen of Hillary at the 9/11 memorial shows her with an unusual pair of sunglasses on. Few if anyone else is wearing any and they are of unusual color and design. There is something strange about them or maybe I need to get some fresh air.

James, you're not the only one. I thought the same thing when I first saw them.

James said...

Maybe nothing, but intriguing.

According to CT sites, they are "antiseizure" sunglasses,

According to Vogue, Ralph Lauren Prismatics.

The lady in blue with her was also photographed administering a seizure diagnostic test. Not a typical pneumonia or dehydration test.

Best US Election ever, the US is mainlining CT, proving "the craycray", every single day.

Much better than a "reality based" Election.
