No, it’s not “sexist” to ask about Hillary's health. It's journalism.

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

While Donald Trump criss-crosses America with stadium-sized rallies, Hillary Clinton does about one public event a week. She just had her first public event in days, and it turned into a violent coughing fit. It went on for a solid two minutes.

On the same day, on the campaign plane, she started to talk to reporters. And less than a minute in, that cough again.

(Her staff say she has allergies, but there’s no pollen in a plane's filtered air.)

In her 89-second press availability on the plane, before the coughing cut it off, journalists had a chance to put some questions to her. Do you know what they asked?

“How was your Labour Day?”

That’s what you’ve got? 275 days without a press conference. Email scandal, health scandal, Clinton Foundation scandal, smashing Blackberries scandal.

Hillary Clinton is sick. As I told you in my in-depth video last month (that's had over 169,000 views), she had a concussion. She saw double. She needs naps. She coughs all the time. Something’s wrong.

And it’s not sexist to ask about it. It’s called journalism.

David Houston great point, and of course if Hillary smoked crack in front of live TV the media party would be praising her for her life choices.

It wasn’t wrong for the press to dog Mayor Rob Ford about his health and lifestyle until they put him in his grave, but it’s wrong to ask about Clinton’s health for a much more important job

I don’t think it’s a sexist question but not one that is likely to make or break either candidate and if we aren’t careful will play into the narrative we are picking on the infirm or the alternative exaggerating an issue for political gain. Either way I don’t see it as a winning strategy. I don’t question the right of anyone to ask any question they want but I do question the importance in light of the many other issues she has lied about which are seemingly more significant and the optic we might creating in the public’s mind that we follow them around all day looking for cough, nod or passing of gas to prove our need to be right. Both sides have a chain of command set up in the event either one of them gives up the ghost prematurely so I really can’t see what it matters is Hillary is a beacon of fitness or has one foot int he grave.

Bill Elder….there’s lots of information on Hilliary, the clinton foundation, benghazi, the clinton hit list. What went on when the clintons were in arkansas, the IRS, FBI. Trey gowdy is great. The corruption is mind boggling.GO to you tube folks. You won’t find this info from the msm

I don’t think its a health issue. She only coughs when she’s lying.

Ezra should have a doctor on the show to discuss her symptoms and what she may have.
We want some medical answers.
As for the second bottle of water, I think she forgot that she already had water.

Trump has rallies with the people, Hillary hides and gets money from wall street that the left supposedly hates.

The bottle had water.
The glass had vodka.

Not sexist but certainly healthist…let the miserable woman die in piece

I see they stacked the audience with Dem organ grinders with scripted accusations/questions.
commented 2016-09-07 22:29:13 -0400
Questions aren’t even identical. A joke.
commented 2016-09-07 22:26:41 -0400
She’s only in the hot seat for about half an hour WITHOUT interacting with her opponent. Seriously? Is she that infirm?
commented 2016-09-07 22:20:07 -0400
Not impressed with the commander in chief forum so far. There is no interaction at all between Trump and Clinton, similar to the Cameron/ Farage Brexit debates. Worth noting: Though Clinton agreed to Matt Lauer’s ridiculous request to not attack Trump but only focus on her qualifications, she attacks Trump at 13:35. Hey, a Clinton is a Clinton is a Clinton.

She is pitiful, i shake my head at the Americans who would vote for her, either they are dumb a stump or have no morals, she is a proven liar,she is a corpse dragging her feet hoping to coast into the Presidency.We all know about the Clinton foundation etc,etc so i m not going into it all.
Trump has the MM ganging up on him. all the rich elites pouring money into her campaign to stop him.,. and he is still beating her
Here is a video of Donald Trump on CNN 10 years ago, 10 years ago he foretold the future we have today , he sounds as Presidential then as he does now.
The man is rock solid, what he said then he says now ,not like Hitlery changing her mind every breath she takes . i just wish i could vote for him

Hopefully she will die before the rigged election.

Watching the potus candidate debate now – Hillary acts looks shot up with some stimulant – pupils are big and they can’t shut her up.
commented 2016-09-07 20:14:28 -0400
From my personal experience, chronic wet coughing is a symptom of congenital heart disease (too much liquid in lungs due to low circulatory efficiency) had an aunt and a good friend with this – lost them both to heart attacks after this chronic coughing fit period (about 8 months).

They say Hillary;s deteriorating health is the result of long term alcohol and prescription drug abuse.

If she won’t quit and get surgery she may as well swap the ambulance in her motorcade for a herse.

Was it sexist when the dems went after John McCane for his health records when he was running for the republicans. More leftie BS.
commented 2016-09-07 19:44:48 -0400
She looks drawn, gaunt and tired. She doesn’t have what it takes to be the POTUS.
commented 2016-09-07 19:35:50 -0400
It has been said that ol’Killary could kill and barbecue and eat a baby on the front lawn of the white house and the MSM would hand her a napkin. The bloody media is the problem and in the last year they have really ramped up the bullshit, not only in the USA but all over the globe. A citizen campaign of burning down every media outlet would be a good start, maybe the high paid talking fools would get the hint. It seemed to scare the shit out of the press in Ukraine.

She plans to get elected – ole bill plans to run the country.
commented 2016-09-07 19:15:12 -0400
The press made fun of Reagan back in the day. Was that sexist? Of course ol Bill is not sexist to them.
commented 2016-09-07 19:14:01 -0400
Who needs to ask at this point use your eyes. She has an ambulance in her motorcade ferkrissake.
