Hillary Clinton Suffers ‘Medical Episode’ at 9/11 Ceremony

Hillary Clinton abruptly left today’s 9/11 commemoration in New York City after suffering what Fox News described as a “medical episode.”

video now available on Twitter appears to show the moment, confirming what law enforcement source told Rick Leventhal. After slipping away from the ceremony, the Democratic nominee is waiting for her van. The van pulls up. As Clinton moves forward, her knees buckle, she spasms and appears to faint, and is maneuvered by her security into the van.

The van left and the pool reporters assigned to Clinton were prevented from leaving the media area to follow her. For over an hour, the campaign refused to say where the candidate was or her condition.

Finally, Clinton’s spokesman Nick Merrill released a statement saying, “During the ceremony, she felt overheated so departed to go to her daughter’s apartment, and is feeling much better.”

She’d leave Chelsea’s department shortly before noon, declaring “I’m feeling great,” and remarking “It’s a beautiful day in New York.”

Suffering another health-related incident at such a major event is already raising further questions as to the medical well-being of the presidential front-runner.

Just four days ago, in the wake of Clinton’s Labor Day coughing fit, The Washington Post‘s Chris Cillizza blastedthose questioning the candidate’s health, asking “Can we just stop talking about Hillary Clinton’s health now?” The Clinton campaign even took to warning reporters not to press the issue. Even today, after Fox News broke the story, the Twitter accounts of most major American news organizations remained strangely silent about Clinton’s abrupt, mysterious departure.

The media is not so quiet now, and with the posting of the harrowing video of Hillary’s collapse, voters will not only be talking about Hillary’s health, but likely praying for it.
