Underneath all of the hubbub between Clinton’s DNC collusion, and her ever-present email scandal, one rumor has been floating around the internet that refuses to die, and for decent reason.
Clinton’s health seems to be a continuing issue for her, and the campaigns attempts to hide it leave much to be desired. While some of it may be hearsay and speculation, there seems to be enough to it that some are trying to take a closer look and discern whether or not there’s something to be concerned about.
Apparently, it’s enough of a concern to CNN host Dr. Drew Pinsky, who brought it up during a radio interview one day.
She’s receiving sort-of 1950-level care by our evaluation. So we took a look at her record, and here are the basic facts. She had two episodes of what’s called Deep-Venous Thrombosis. Common problem. Blood clots in the leg. She also has hypothyroidism, and she’d been treated for hypothyroidism with something called Armour Thyroid, which is very unconventional and something that we used to use back in the ’60s. And both he and I went, “Hmmm, that’s weird.” And by the way, wow, Armour Thyroid sometimes has some weird side effects.
Apparently this interview was so controversial that the radio station itself took down the segment.
It also cost Dr. Drew his show.
According to WaPo:
In a statement, CNN executive vice president Ken Jautz said he and Pinsky “have mutually agreed to air the final episode of his show on September 22″ but gave no specific reason for the cancellation.
So apparently, talking about Hillary Clinton’s health hits a little too close to home. Close enough that it gets people fired, and entire shows cancelled. I shudder to think what kind of message is being sent to the rest of the media here: “Talk about things to sensitive to Clinton, and you’re gone.”
