David Axelrod took a shot at Hillary Clinton on Monday, suggesting the Democratic presidential nominee has "an unhealthy penchant for privacy."
The former White House senior adviser to President Obama weighed in on Clinton's pneumonia diagnosis while inquiring about a "cure" for Clinton's penchant for privacy.
Antibiotics can take care of pneumonia. What's the cure for an unhealthy penchant for privacy that repeatedly creates unnecessary problems?- David Axelrod (@davidaxelrod) September 12, 2016
Clinton's doctor, Lisa Bardack, released a statement Sunday evening saying that the Democratic candidate had been suffering from pneumonia since Friday.
Clinton left a 9/11 memorial early on Sunday and was seen in video stumbling toward a van for departure, with aides helping to hold her.
She had become overheated and was dehydrated, her doctor said, noting that Clinton had been put on antibiotics.
But her campaign had been criticized by media for not keeping the press appraised during her departure from the 9/11 event.
Donald Trump's campaign has fanned questioned about Clinton's health for months, suggesting something more serious was at play, which Clinton's campaign had dismissed.
Axelrod, a Democratic strategist who worked on Obama's 2012 reelection, has scrutinized Clinton's campaign before, including in April when he suggested she stop using a "patronizing" line.
Clinton told reporters that she felt "great" after emerging from her daughter Chelsea's apartment on Sunday, where she went after leaving the memorial.
