Hillary Clinton cancelled several events scheduled for early this week as her campaign attempted to battle concerns about her health, while also taking fire for a recent remark she made about Donald Trump's supporters.Defense.
The Clinton campaign went into full damage control mode after a video surfaced of the the Democratic presidential nominee having difficulty walking while leaving a 9/11 memorial service in New York on Sunday. Several hours after the video was published, her physician released a letter revealing that the former secretary of state contracted pneumonia that caused her to get overheated during the 9/11 memorial event.
The disclosure frustrated some reporters who felt Clinton's campaign purposefully obfuscated her illness, while simultaneously adding fuel to speculation about Clinton's health has been a fixation of mainly fringe right-wing media outlets for months.
"How they handled today was not good," said Evan Siegfried, a Republican strategist and author of GOP GPS. "Three different responses prior to pneumonia. Had they come out with it at first it would have quelled the chatter."
