POLIZETTE — Despite years of significant health-related incidents, from possible seizures and strokes to difficulty walking or speaking through coughing fits, the mainstream media has yet to ask Hillary Clinton for reasonable disclosures about her physical fitness to serve in office.
And now, after February photos taken by Getty of Hillary Clinton apparently stumbling up a flight of stairs resurfaced across the internet Sunday, the liberal media powerhouse is actually defending its champion from being asked to answer to her health.
The pictures, which showed Clinton’s aides holding onto her arms above the elbows and steadying her up the moderate flight of stairs, re-circulated on Sunday. After the Drudge Report picked up the piece and the images were spread all across the internet and social media, the Left concocted elaborate responses Monday, blaming right-wing conspiracies and blatantly ignoring the possibility Clinton may have actual health issues.
“From the looks of Matt Drudge’s home page, Hillary Clinton is so sick, she needs help getting up a flight of stairs,” wrote Brian Stelter for CNN Money. “But looks can be deceiving. The Drudge Report, one of the most widely read sites on the web, is misleading visitors by taking a six-month-old photo out of context.”
