UPDATE: Following Hillary Clinton’s fainting episode over the weekend, and the subsequent revelation that she had been diagnosed with pneumonia, Politico reports that Hillary is also suffering from “chronic dehydration” brought on by her “reluctance to drink water,” which has become a source of concern among her campaign staff.
“She won’t drink water, and you try telling Hillary Clinton she has to drink water,” one terrified Clinton associate told Politico.
As Heat Street has previously documented (below), Hillary doesn’t seem to have any issues imbibing liquids on a regular basis, she just happens to prefer alcoholic beverages. Maybe that’s part of the problem, given that beer, wine, and liquor can ultimately exacerbate dehydration.
Or perhaps Hillary, a landowning millionaire, is simply trying to exude the lifestyle of ancient elite societies who exclusively drank wine to show how superior they were to all the disgusting water-gulping commoners.
Hillary Clinton would consume a heavy dosage of “adult beverages” in the White House if she is elected president, the New York Times reports:
Hillary apparently thinks her willingness to “schmooze” over booze and “use alcohol as a political lubricant” is one reason why she would be a “better dealmaker” than President Obama. Clinton “loves socializing, loves having people and spouses over, and really loves talking over drinks,” said Neera Tanden, a former Clinton aide who runs the Center for American Progress.
One thing is clear: Hillary Clinton loves to drink. For example, she allegedly took part in a drinking contest with Senator John McCain. (She wouldn’t say who won.) Here are some photos of Hillary Clinton enjoying adult beverages.
