Opposition: So it's agreed. If she cancels the California trip, we'll go with "She's too weak/frail to lead". If she keeps on schedule we'll go with "Clinton is a biological weapon who will not stop until she spreads disease to all". Either way we'l mention that she is subhuman and an unfit candidate.

The other day I came across the raw feed of one of Hillary's speeches. She was having a coughing fit. The person who posted the video made it out like it was a big left wing conspiracy cover up because the live coverage went to commercial or something while she drank some water and tried to regain her voice. As a paranoid government conspiracy aficionado, even for me that is a bit much.

Also, she's 'mentally impaired', at least according to Rep. Louis Gohmert (who might be a little touched in the head himself).

The right and the media has been trying say her comments about Trumps supporters as huge negative to her.

"half" of Donald Trump's supporters fit into a "basket of deplorables"

Who will Hillary Clinton’s ‘basket of deplorables’ comment actually alienate?

Well it wasn't. And although she has walked back the 1/2 part of it She has stuck to the comment...and that is good, politically. Reminding people that what Trump has done in giving voice to disgusting elements of our society is necessary and plain good politics.

Walks back the number

But this episode today was devastating in it's appearance and it fed into the narrative they right has been pushing that she has one foot in the grave.

The announcement by her doctor that she has pneumonia helped to take the OHHH out of it a little but it was still the worst thing to happen to her campaign so far.

Now if over the next few days she looks OK it will fade. If it lingers the narrative will get louder. The right will still start printing her death notices and Trump may push it...as a matter of fact he could push it too far and blow back on him his health is still in question.

Clinton, however, was saying that half of Trump's base was motivated by negative inclinations: racism, sexism. No one is going to say, "Hey, how dare you disparage my family's history of being racist."

The author appears unaware of the South.

The whole health question is yet more bullshit, just like the so-called 'scandals'.
As for the bout with pneumonia, she is allowed to get sick, just like anyone. Yeah, the timing is as bad as it can be, but otherwise not a serious setback. Hopefully she'll ignore the clamoring and take it easy for a few days. Pushing herself just to impress her critics is probably the worst thing to do.

So far no change in her schedule two events in California. All this is just noise and will all be forgotten one day after the debate.

According to CNN the California trip is cancelled. Which is probably the smart thing to do.

Pneumonia is the least of her health problems.

3 years ago she had a blood clot... wow...two years ago I had a appendicitis.

It looks like we both had them treated...good thing it could have been serious.

I'm more concerned about here repeated memory losses.

Under Trump's America, foreigners stay foreign. Under Clinton's America, you get pneumonia. Under Trump's America, your family is safe. Under Clinton's America, your milk is stored in the microwave.
