What is the old saying – that those who live in haven’t-released-tax-records houses shouldn’t throw stones? Ah, it’s something like that.

Either way, this newfound idea by the Fox News network and all other Trump cronies that Hillary Clinton is somehow unfit for the presidency due to her health is just, for lack of a better word, sick.

It is especially funny that they have landed on this topic considering just how flimsy Trump’s own health records are. As pointed out by several medical experts (and amateurs), the letter released back in December to confirm Trump’s good health was allegedly written by a Gastroenterologist and there are more than a few questionable aspects to it, including a wonky font, the inclusion of a personal email address, as well as the doctor commenting that Trump’s alleged screening produced “only positive results.” Now, in the medical world, a test that is “positive” indicates that the patient is suffering from that malady. You could argue that the doctor simply lacked precision of speech, but what sort of reputable doctor would be so sloppy?

I’m not saying Trump is unhealthy or that he is in any danger of dying in office (unless he is strangled by his $6,000 weave), but how can he spread these rumors about Clinton’s health when he, himself has offered us no real assurance about his own?

As for Clinton’s health, though she is likely not the healthiest of specimines due to her advanced age (still younger than Trump), her doctor promptly released a clean bill of health detailing several aspects of her health in 2015.

In response to these new allegations, her longtime physician released this statement on Monday:


Sure, go after “Crooked” Hillary for her corruption and Wall Street coziness, there’s plenty of material there, but by god, if you are Donald f*cking Trump, don’t let your haggard crew harp on whether or not Clinton needs help up a set of stairs (she doesn’t).
