Hillary Clinton Diagnosed with Pneumonia, Cancels California Trip


Hillary Clinton has been diagnosed with pneumonia and is being treated for dehydration, according to her personal doctor.

Rumors flew after the Democratic presidential candidate was seen abruptly leaving the Sept. 11 memorial ceremony in New York City on Sunday. She appeared to be unwell as she was helped into a van by Secret Service agents.

Clinton was originally diagnosed on Friday, two days before the ceremony, but the news wasn’t officially announced until video of her entering the van and appearing unwell went viral on social media.

Sunday evening Clinton’s campaign announced that she would be canceling her travel plans to California where she was expected to go for fundraising and other campaign events.

The presidential candidate has come under fire the last few weeks for her health. Republicans most especially have been on the attack, especially after a coughing fit (which is now being reported as a symptom of her pneumonia) during her speech at a Labor Day rally less than two weeks ago. Former Mayor of New York City, Rudy Giuliani, went so far as to say that Clinton is in such poor health that she is in no position to be President.

A campaign spokesman for Clinton said in a statement, “Secretary Clinton attended the September 11th Commemoration Ceremony for just an hour and thirty minutes this morning to pay her respects and greet some of the families of the fallen. During the ceremony, she felt overheated so [she] departed to go to her daughter’s apartment, and is feeling much better.”
