There is a piece of information in the recent report of Hillary's current health problems that has escaped scrutiny. How many of you know that she has been on blood thinners (anticoagulants) after suffering a blood clot in a leg after the head injury in 2102? I've seen no detail on this but got the impression she is still on this medication.

Blood clots in the leg are common and dangerous. Taking anticoagulants also has risks. Does she have an underlying clotting disorder? One of my former medical partners had an inherited clotting disorder that required these medications. He died 2 years ago suddenly at age 54 of a pulmonary embolism (a blood clot from the leg that spread to the lungs).

We need medical transparency from both candidates.

I'm not saying she's lying, but I think skepticism is warranted.

She's 100% right. It would be nice if the effort to manufacture skepticism about the Clintons were to be replicated for all other politicians. Selective skepticism is not real skepticism.

Not to mention allowing Trump to get away with casual lying and racism literally everyday.

When Woodrow Wilson had a stroke, his wife Edith effectively ran the country while the nation was only informed that he was 'under the weather'. If I may create a conspiracy theory for the soft of mind, this health thingy is an evil plot by Bill to get a third term...

This falls in line with my thoughts of over compensating..

Trump claims to have had a physical this past week and says he will release the findings "soon".

As usual, the Clinton campaign's initial reaction was to lie about her collapse. "Over-heated" they said. I don't understand why they can't just say she was diagnosed with pneumonia on Friday. Apparently it is bacterial since she is on antibiotics. Why not just tell the truth? If everyone who has had pneumonia or any lung-related infection votes for Hillary, she would win by a bigger landslide.

Really? It's about noon on the 12th. Let's see if he casually lies or is racist "literally" today, for example.

geez.. agree. If it was pneumonia, why not say it? And if she had it, why was she on a plane with a bunch of reporters? why did she do this photo op?



Having pneumonia sucks. Just say it and don't come up with lies and then "truths". Sorry if I'm suspect. She warrants it.

Wow. I guess I am one of the "deplorables" Hillary ranted about, but in every case you should ask yourself "what if this were Trump doing this?" or "what if Trump said that?". Entropy's cartoon is exactly what is happening. The most generous interpretation is that the media believes it has a duty to save us from a Trump presidency. Look at how Lester Dolt was barbecued in the media when he had the temerity to question Hillary about her emails. Want to bet that future "moderators" of the debates got the message?

IMO that doesn't hold up to scrutiny. You don't achieve that by playing the clip over and over and over again. That's the opposite of protecting her.

The stupid "commander in chief" forum was a fine example. 20 minutes were spent on Hillarys emails. A topic which has been covered extensively and investigated by at least two different legal bodies and found nothing more than carelessness.

0 questions to Trump regarding His ongoing fraud litigation, his history of stiffing paying people, his history of bribing elected officials to avoid investigations, his history of racism and discrimination, his hiring and importation of illegal immigrants to perform work, and his repeated claims that he was against military intervention when he was clearly in support of it.

It's the only example. Or a rare example. The notion that the media isn't and hasn't blasted Trump is ridiculous. I mean...fucking ridiculous.

Well, I guess if only read NRO and watch Sean Hannity, maybe....but F, even if you read NRO you get multiple Trump-basing articles/blog entries every week.

Ever watch the HBO show Veep?. Very fun exaggeration but No one in Washington has instincts to tell the truth unless it is absolutely necessary.

SLF.. what is the commander in chief forum? what station is that on?

Republicans think Fox News is more balanced than it is.. and Dems think the general Media is out to get Hillary, which they are not.. in fact, I'd argue the opposite.

And both are taking shots at Johnson. I'd say CNN has been the most favorable to Johnson in what I've seen/read. Again, my perspective on what I see. I think the Parties are like sports teams and everyone thinks their "team" is getting hosed.

The fact that you said this, simply proves the point.

He's already done both before I woke up this morning. http://www.vox.com/2016/9/12/1288752...-shocking-numb
