After Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s campaign lied for two days about the former Secretary of State having pneumonia, according to her doctor, she now says it’s because she didn’t think it was “that big a deal.”
Clinton phoned into CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360 show to explain why exactly she lied from the beginning about her health problems.

The Democratic presidential nominee told CNN in a phone interview she did feel dizzy and lost her balance while attending a 9/11 commemoration ceremony in New York, but now is “feeling so much better.”
“I was supposed to rest five days, that’s what they told me on Friday, and I didn’t follow that very wise advice,” Clinton said.
She told CNN her campaign didn’t make her diagnosis on Friday public because “I just didn’t think it was going to be that big a deal”
“I thought that I could just keep going forward and power through it, and obviously that didn’t work out so well,” she said.
If her campaign lied about the pneumonia, what else could they be lying about?
