Hillary Has Another Coughing Attack: Trump Makes Me Allergic

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton had another coughing spell during a speech in Cleveland on Monday, joking she gets allergic whenever thinking about her Republican rival Donald Trump.

Clinton's voice sounded scratchy even between the coughs, which lasted about two minutes.

"Every time I think about Trump I get allergic," she said, according to The Hill.

"Once I get over my allergic reaction, let me say we're here in part because we know how important this election is to Ohio. [Cough] It's not just as [running mate] Tim [Kaine] said that Ohio is one of those battleground states you hear about every four years, it's that Ohio represents everything that's great about America and all the challenges and opportunities that we face."

Clinton has suffered several coughing spells during her appearances in recent weeks, a fact some of her critics have used to argue she is in poor health.

Among issues critics cite arguing that the 68-year-old Clinton is suffering from health problems are the fact she suffered a concussion in December 2012 after fainting from dehydration. The concussion was said to be the reason she was seen wearing thick glasses to combat double vision during her Benghazi testimony in January 2013.

She was seen wearing glasses again in February of this year, sparking a tweet from the Drudge Report titled "Hillary Health Drama: Prism Glasses Back on Day After Coughing Seizure."

 

 

The fall also led to the discovery of a blood clot during a follow-up examination, which led to a hospital stay.

"Mrs. Clinton’s blood clot formed in a large vein along the side of her head, behind her right ear, between the brain and the skull," The New York Times reported at the time, adding that she had a blood clot in her leg as first lady in 1998.

She began taking blood thinners at the time, and was still taking Coumadin in August 2015. She told ABC News in 2014 she likely was on blood thinners "for life."

Clinton also takes Armour Thyroid, a thyroid hormone replacement, antihistamines and vitamin B12, according to the Associated Press.

As for the coughing, it was first noticed at the 2013 Benghazi hearing, and came back in January 2016. It has been documented several times since and has been accompanied by the same hoarse speech heard on Monday.

Clinton has had at least two falls, including one while serving as secretary of state in 2009 that broke her right elbow. She was recorded falling while boarding a plane in 2011.
