After Hillary’s disturbing physical meltdown this weekend, her campaign claimed that she had been diagnosed with Pneumonia the previous Friday, they just didn’t tell anyone.
It turns out most people don’t believe that claim and why should they? The Hillary campaign doesn’t have a very good record when it comes to telling the truth.

Voters doubt Clinton’s pneumonia explanation, poll shows
Hillary Clinton is facing a fresh crisis over her perceived trustworthiness following her collapse at a 9/11 memorial, as a poll showed that fewer than half of American voters believe that she is suffering from pneumonia.
The YouGov poll, commissioned by the Times in London, found that 46% of voters did not believe that Clinton was suffering from a mild version of pneumonia, and that a combination of the lung condition, allergies and overheating led to her fainting on Sunday.
About 45% of the 1,910 respondents from YouGov’s First Verdict panel did believe the explanation given by Clinton’s doctor after her campaign initially said the former secretary of state merely felt “overheated”. The remaining 9% of those asked said they were uncertain over the explanation.
The findings come as the Clinton campaign acknowledged that it mishandled news of the candidate’s pneumonia, which it admitted had been diagnosed on Friday. It was not disclosed even as campaign staff chided reporters for questioning bouts of coughing by Clinton at recent events.
Her press secretary, Brian Fallon, said: “In retrospect, we could have handled it better in providing more information. That’s on us. We regret that.”
Many people believe Hillary Clinton has something much worse than Pneumonia.
