Talk radio host Rush Limbaugh suggested Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton might be aging more quickly than the average person, and that might be the explanation for her recent health woes.

Limbaugh's comments Monday came amid speculation over Clinton's health after she was seen on video appearing to faint before being put into a van.

Clinton's campaign initially passed off the fainting spell to her becoming overheated at the 9/11 memorial events. But as speculation continued after a cell phone video of her fainting spell emerged, the campaign released a statement from Clinton's personal doctor saying she had been diagnosed with pneumonia the previous Friday.

"We know what we saw, and the poor woman, I'm telling you, is sick," Limbaugh told his audience. "She's not well. I don't know what it is."

He then noted some people "just get old fast."

Some people just age quickly, he said, "and it makes them more susceptible to things. Maybe it's nothing. Maybe she doesn't have anything. Maybe it's just age. Who knows? That's the point. We don't know who to believe. And this is serious. We're talking POTUS here. President [of the] United States."

It is not the first time Limbaugh has suggested Clinton's aging might make voters think twice about voting for her. In 2008, Limbaugh came under fire after saying the American public doesn't want to watch a woman age in office.

"Does the country actually want to watch a woman get older before their eyes on a daily basis?" Limbaugh famously said at the time. Had Clinton been elected in 2008, she would have been 61 at her inauguration. She turns 69 on Oct. 26.

When Clinton lost the Democratic nomination to Barack Obama in 2008, Limbaugh noted he was right.
