After nearly collapsing at a 9/11 memorial service in New York City on Sunday, Hillary Clinton’s doctor revealed the presidential candidate was recently diagnosed with pneumonia.
“Secretary Clinton has been experiencing a cough related to allergies,” Dr. Lisa Bardack said in a statement. “On Friday, during follow-up evaluation of her prolonged cough, she was diagnosed with pneumonia.”
“She was put on antibiotics, and advised to rest and modify her schedule.”
Footage of Clinton stumbling while attempting to get into a car (see above) was filmed by a passerby. Clinton’s aides had to assist her into the vehicle.
“Secretary Clinton attended the September 11th Commemoration Ceremony for just an hour and thirty minutes this morning to pay her respects and greet some of the families of the fallen,” a statement from her campaign read. “During the ceremony, she felt overheated so departed to go to her daughter’s apartment, and is feeling much better.”
As a result of her illness, campaign officials have canceled her upcoming two-day to California.
