Hillary Clinton suffered from speaking problems as a result of her struggle with “sheer exhaustion” on the campaign trail, according to emails published by WikiLeaks on Monday.
In March 2016, Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta replied to an email from a voter upset about Hillary’s comments about Nancy Reagan and AIDS, which sparked a tremendous backlash on the left.
After attending Nancy Reagan’s funeral in California, Hillary praised the former first lady and her husband, Ronald Reagan, for engaging a “national conversations” about the AIDS virus.
Many viewed this as revisionist history and were outraged, including Keith, the individual who emailed Podesta to complain. Keith wasn’t buying the excuse that Clinton had “misspoke,” and even threatened to vote for Republican candidate John Kasich.
Podesta replied: “I can’t explain this other than sheer exhaustion.”
Hillary Clinton has a history of suffering health scares, taking naps, and sitting on pillows. On occasion, the former secretary of state has been photographed leaning on railings for support.
On the anniversary of the September 11 attacks, Hillary nearly collapsed in Manhattan. After initially blaming the episode on “dehydration,” the Clinton campaign was forced to acknowledge that the candidate had been previously diagnosed with pneumonia.
Hillary recently lamented that there would be “no more naps” as her campaign entered the final stretch before Election Day.
