It turns out the Hillary has -- PNEUMONIA! And it seems that, after taking antibiotics and feeling better, she decided to push on through.
Now CNN is treating the story as though nuclear war just broke out.
Oh, for Chrissakes. Pneumonia is serious, but people get over it. And Hillary was hardly the first person who left bed prematurely -- in fact, I've known people who did the same thing after a diagnosis of pneumonia. Jeez, after my heart attack, I wanted to leave the hospital the next day -- and being an ornery bastard, I might well have yanked those damned tubes out of my arms and walked right out, if my ladyfriend had not cleverly taken my pants home with her. (They kept me there for five days.)
The best antibiotic in the world is garlic. Lots and lots and LOTS of fresh, chopped, uncooked garlic. Someone keep this woman in bed for a few days and make sure that she eats something on the order of a full bulb each of those days. If the doc prescribes amox, take that too.
It's no biggie. And it's certainly no reason for this nation to hand the nuclear launch codes to a dimwitted narcissistic maniac who fits the classic psychological profile of a dictator
So why did Trump leave the 9/11 memorial ceremony? (See previous post.) We now know that Hillary had a good excuse -- and I respect her determination to tough it out in order to show her respect for the victims. But what the hell is Trump's excuse?
Did Mr. Short Attention Span get bored? Sure seems like it...
