“Do you think Hillary would be able to stand here for an hour?”
September 14, 2016
During another large rally, GOP nominee Donald Trump brought up Hillary Clinton’s health issues for the first time since her collapse this past Sunday, intimating that he doesn’t believe she is well enough to campaign against him.
Trump went off script for a moment, commenting on how hot it was at the rally in in Canton, Ohio.
“You think this is easy, in this beautiful room that’s 122 degrees?” Trump told the large crowd.
“It is hot and it’s always hot when I perform because the crowds are so big. These rooms were not designed for this kind of a crowd.” Trump declared.
“Do you think Hillary would be able to stand here for an hour? I don’t think so. I don’t think so.” the GOP nominee said prompting the crowd to go wild.

Later on in his speech, Trump returned to Hillary’s health, noting “She’s lying in bed getting better, and we want her better, we want her back on the trail. Right?”
The crowd responded by booing and shouting “no”.
Both candidates released medical information Wednesday, with Trump appearing on The Dr. Oz Show, to air Thursday.
According to statements released by the show, the host discussed with Trump “a full review of systems,” including the head and neck, hormone levels, respiratory health, and “family medical history.”
When Oz asked Trump about his stamina, Trump responded “I would say based on my life, I don’t know if this makes sense, but I feel as good today as I did when I was 30.”
The Clinton campaign, meanwhile, released a letter from Hillary’s personal physician saying “she is in excellent mental condition.”
“My overall impression is that Mrs. Clinton has remained healthy and has not developed new medical conditions this year other than a sinus and ear infection and her recently diagnosed pneumonia,” Dr. Lisa Bardack wrote.
Critics have noted, however, that the letter does not constitute detailed medical information.
CNN Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta said the letter is “certainly not a release of medical records by any means.”
Gupta said, “This is not a — this is certainly not a release of medical records by any means. This is very similar in some ways to what we got July of last year. There may be more coming, it’s a little bit unclear.”

Others have noted that Dr Bardack’s diagnosis of Hillary having “mild non-contagious bacterial pneumonia” is questionable, because there is no such condition, according to The International Classification of Diseases (ICD).
