Hillary Clinton’s health has been in the spotlight ever since she has a medical episode during the 9/11 memorial. The latest pieces of information regarding her health were revealed by her daughter, Chelsea.
Hillary’s campaign seemed to take a dramatic nosedive shortly after she collapsed at the September 11th memorial in New York City, which forced the Clinton Campaign to downplay longstanding rumors that she had a deadly illness.
Up until this week, the Clinton camp refused to admit that Hillary’s ill health was anything more than a bout of pneumonia.
However, Chelsea posted a tweet on Thursday that suggests her mother may have been covering up a much more serious illness.

The tweet prompted an immediate response from the public:

Hillary’s first public appearance on Wednesday evening did nothing to dispel rumors about her deteriorating health, as an exhausted looking Hillary gave a speech at a Children’s Defense Fund’s gala in Washington, D.C.
“Now I will admit, coming here tonight wasn’t the easiest thing for me,” Clinton told the audience. “There have been a few times this past week when all I wanted to do was just to curl up with a good book or our dogs and never leave the house again.”
“I know many of you are deeply disappointed about the results of the election,” the former secretary of state said, adding, “I am too, more than I can ever express.”
“As I said last week, our campaign was never about one person or even one election.”
The arc of moral universe can “feel awfully long,” Hillary mused, reciting Martin Luther King, Jr’s observation that it ‘bends toward justice.’
“Believe me – I would know“.
“Our campaign was never about one person or even one election – it was about the country that we love and about building an America that is hopeful inclusive and big-hearted.”
“I ask you to stay engaged, stay engaged on every level. We need you. America needs you, your energy, your ambition, your talent. That’s how we get through this. That’s how we help to make our contributions to bend the arc of the moral universe towards justice.”
“The divisions laid bare by this election run deep. But please listen to me when I say this: America is worth it. Our children are worth it. Believe in our country, fight for our values, and never, ever give up.”
