The questions around Hillary Clinton’s health are still mounting, despite her campaign trying to play them off as “right-wing conspiracies”, and a new poll by the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) shows that medical professionals tend to agree with these health concerns.
The AAPS poll was conducted on the Internet with 250 respondents, and was an informal poll designed to gauge the level of concern from qualified physicians regarding Hillary’s health issues.
The results of the poll are shocking, as 71% agreed that Hillary Clinton’s health concerns are serious and may disqualify her from becoming president. Only 20% of physicians polled thought these concerns were “overblown”.
Concerns about Hillary Clinton’s health are “serious—could be disqualifying for the position of President of the U.S.,” say nearly 71% of 250 physicians responding to an informal internet survey by the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS). About 20% said concerns were “likely overblown, but should be addressed as by full release of medical records.”
Furthermore, 78% said that Hillary’s health issues have not received enough attention in the media, which is not surprising as most of the mainstream press has bent over backwards to paint Clinton in a positive light while demonizing Donald Trump.
The report goes on to state that nearly 66% of physicians polled felt that medical professionals who had legitimate concerns about Hillary’s health should make those concerns public, rather than holding them back for fear of retaliation.
In fact, TV personality and physician Dr. Drew spoke about Clinton’s health recently, saying he was “gravely concerned” and she was receiving “1950s level care”. Unfortunately for Dr. Drew, that statement did not align with the mainstream media’s narrative that any talk about Hillary’s health issues is nothing more than crazy right-wing conspiracies. Shortly after his statement, Dr. Drew’s television shows were canceled. The network claimed it had nothing to do with his concerns about Clinton’s health, but it sure is suspicious that his shows were canceled only days after he spoke honestly about Hillary’s health
The physicians taking the AAPS poll were also given the opportunity to leave comments, confidentially, to give their opinions on Clinton’s health and if a candidate’s medical records should be made public. One physician commented on Hillary’s “loss of memory” and commented on her concussion incident as “concerning”.
Another physician mentioned Clinton’s “so called loss of memory claimed during her FBI questioning about her email server.” Beyond answering only the poll’s questions, one also remarked that “I think that the candidate should be honest with the public about his/her health!” The history of the concussion was concerning: “The public must watch the movie Concussion to realize that such an injury does affect thought process.”
Unfortunately, honesty is not Hillary’s strong point, as a poll in July found that 66% of voters find her dishonest and untrustworthy.
The AAPS poll should be a wake up call to the mainstream media and political pundits, who have largely dismissed any Hillary health concerns as unfounded conspiracies, but many medical professionals have comes forward to state their own concerns about this matter. They can no longer hide behind the cloak of “conspiracy”, and if they truly want to people to make an educated decision this November, then they must face the facts that voters have the right to know if a candidate is unfit to hold office.
Will the media finally admit that there are very real concerns about Hillary’s fitness, stamina and cognitive abilities to become commander-in-chief of this great nation?
Not likely, considering that any major news station you watch will follow a similar narrative to any story. That narrative being that Hillary Clinton is the only competent candidate to become President of the United States, and Donald Trump is not.
It’s not only the press deflecting Hillary’s health issues, but she is also receiving protection from Hollywood and media stars too, as Sarah Silverman said today, “Anyone bringing up Hillary Clinton’s health is an a-hole”. I suppose that means that long time physician Dr. Drew and the nearly 178 medical professional who responded to the AAPS survey with concern for Hillary’s health are just a bunch of “meanies”.
Hillary Clinton also appeared on the Jimmy Kimmel show, and in an attempt to prove to the nation that she is physically fit, she opened a pickle jar on live TV. I guess that just wasn’t enough for the 71% of the physicians taking this poll. Perhaps they haven’t heard of this revolutionary new medical test of opening up a pickle jar.
No, there are very real concerns about Hillary’s medical stability, as if she is elected, she will be responsible for the over 300 million citizens of the United States.
However, considering the massive amounts of rallies, press conference and events that Trump holds, while Hillary prefers private fundraisers and soft-ball questions from the media, I think it’s safe to say Trump is physically fit to meet the demands of the highest office in the nation.
Regardless of the media’s spin on Hillary’s health, the nation’s eyes will be watching for any further indications of her medical ailments, which could be a deciding factor in the upcoming presidential election.
