While speaking to Breitbart this week, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) decided to weigh in on Hillary Clinton’s health, probably because every other Republican has and he doesn’t want to feel left out.
Paul, who is a non-board certified ophthalmologist (eye doctor), gave a very thorough breakdown of any potential health issues the former Secretary of State may be experiencing.
“I think she has some significant health problems–I don’t know what they are,” he said.
“Her losing consciousness, there, which by all appearances she did lose consciousness, is not something commonly associated with pneumonia,” the surgeon said.
Yup. She is definitely very, very, VERY ill…Paul just doesn’t know what that illness is. But it ain’t gonna stop him from spreading conspiracy theories around. Because, as we all know, that is what duly elected members of the US Senate are supposed to do.
The Kentucky lawmaker said he doubted very much that Clinton was suffering from pneumonia last week when she nearly collapsed from dehydration, claiming that Clinton’s lack of transparency made him question that diagnosis.
“The diagnosis as a something being a non-infectious infection is kind of a strange way to describe a pneumonia as well,” he said.
“Her heath is an issue,” he said. “Particularly the fact that she has not been very forthcoming with it.”
Now, mind you, this is coming from an eye surgeon who created his own ophthalmology board so he could certify himself and who has long courted tin-foil hat bullshittery. And this ‘interview’ was published in a publication that dutifully serves as Donald Trump’s propaganda arm, with its chief serving as Trump’s campaign CEO.
And just to show how Trump’s dominance politics runs things at Breitbart, they made sure to both humiliate Paul in the piece by bringing up his piss-poor performance in the GOP primary while also noting how happy he is that Trump has “narrowed the gap a lot in the battleground states.”
Rand Paul, now serving as Donald Trump’s bitch.
