Bill Clinton was on CBS’s Charlie Rose show this morning and weighed in on Hillary Clinton’s nebulous health condition

“She’s doing fine, she was even better last night before she went to sleep. She had a good night’s sleep she’s doing fine,” he said. “We’ve gotten all these, as you might imagine, emails and text messages and calls. A friend of ours called and left a message today, that her husband had actually just been hospitalized for pneumonia apparently there’s a lot of it going around and a bunch of her staff has gotten sick. But she’s just doing fine. She just got dehydrated yesterday.”

It is doubtful that there is a true statement in here. Pneumonia doesn’t really “go around” unless you are dealing with a population that is in close quarters and immune compromised… like a hospital ward. The type of pneumonia Hillary was allegedly treated for with antibiotics not only doesn’t “go around” at all but it is mostly prevented by the required pneumonia vaccination that you get when you are over 65, which Hillary definitely is.

Also dehydration doesn’t cause fainting unless it is very serious, via WebMD:

You will note that fainting, which is what Clinton did Sunday when she was “tossed like a side of beef” into her van by the Secret Service, is the most serious of the symptom and required emergency room treatment. Something that did not happen.

In short, this part of the interview is classic Bill Clinton: a lie, wrapped in a half-truth, and draped with misdirection.

Then we get this rather interesting statement:

“Well if it is, it’s a mystery to me and all of her doctors,” he said, “because frequently—well not frequently, rarely—but on more than one occasion, over the last many, many years, the same sort of thing happened to her when she got severely dehydrated.”

She “frequently” drops on her fat butt because of dehydration? How does this even happen. If Hillary Clinton ventures out of air conditioning for more than a few minutes then a scheduler somewhere gets fired. How an adult woman could achieve the necessary level of dehydration to drop flat on the sidewalk before noon is inexplicable.
