It’s the buzz of the internet as more people note Hillary Clinton’s strange behavior patterns. And it might just be the one thing that the Democrat nominee cannot control — her physical and mental health.
Twitter has been bursting with photos taken by Reuters that show a feeble looking Clinton climbing stairs carefully with the aid of President Obama and staffers.

The public is beginning to connect the dots, from the 68-year-old’s odd extended “bathroom break” in the middle of a Democrat primary debate to recent videos of her caught on camera by the press during which she appears to have a seizure.
There is also the question of why the first female presidential nominee has failed to hold a press conference since December 4, 2015. Reports Washington Post’s Margaret Sullivan, “She gets her message out in ways that are completely controlled. But American citizens deserve better.”
According to the former first lady’s partially-released medical records — which consists only of a letter from her doctor — in late 2012, Hillary fainted and hit her head, resulting in a concussion. During a follow-up appointment to the concussion, doctors detected a blood clot in Clinton’s brain, which required the immediate assistance of anticoagulants (blood thinners) to remedy — medication which she continues to take. The news was also reported by the New York Times after her release from the hospital in 2013.
In January 2016, Breitbart investigated Clinton’s mysterious health related issues. Former NYPD VIP security detail officer John Cardillo told Breitbart News that Clinton has trouble walking to her car after giving a speech, adding, “I got this from both a [federal agent] … and I also got it from a New York [NYPD] guy who worked security at a Hillary event in New York City,”
“Both of them told me the same thing, that after her speeches, whether she did a talk or a policy speech, she had to sit behind – she would come off the podium backstage – and have to sit and rest before making it back to the car because she was so fatigued, dizzy and disoriented.”
Additionally, Breitbart interviewed several neurologists who observed Hillary’s behavior, noted her partially released medical records, and provided some possible diagnoses based on their years of caring for patients with brain injuries.
Dr. Daniel Kassicieh, D.O. — who has run his own Sarasota, Florida, practice for 20 years, is a board-certified neurologist and the medical director of the Florida Headache and Movement Disorder Center — stated that he believes Hillary suffers from post-concussion syndrome.
“I would say as a neurologist having seen many post-concussion syndrome patients that I would not want a president who I knew had post-concussion syndrome…because their super high-level cognitive abilities are clearly impaired and even their routine multitasking high-stress abilities are affected because post-concussion syndrome patients in general don’t tolerate even moderate work, stress-related environments.”
Dr. Nicholas C. Bambakidis — director of cerebrovascular and skull base surgery, program director of neurological surgery at University Hospitals Case Medical Center in Cleveland, Ohio, and a professor of neurosurgery and radiology at the CWRU School of Medicine in Cleveland — also analyzed the facts for Breitbart News.
“These types of clots are usually formed spontaneously without an obvious cause. They can be associated with dehydration, a predisposition to blood clotting disorders, are more common in women and may be associated with oral contraceptive medication, severe head trauma, brain surgery, or infection. If untreated, they can progress and lead to bleeding in the brain or swelling, and a stroke or even death. The treatment is generally anticoagulation and treatment of any underlying cause.”
Dr. Drew Pinsky, nationally syndicated radio talk show host heard on KABC radio “Dr. Drew Midday Live,” also spoke about Clinton’s health and explained that experiencing symptoms for more than a year after a head injury is very serious, particularly for an elderly woman in her late 60’s.
Hillary has a family history of heart disease and neurological issues. Her father, Hugh Ellsworth Rodham, died in 1993 of a stroke.
Calls for the release of Clinton’s full medical records have been ignored by the campaign.
