Trump promptly wished her a swift recovery and dropped the subject.
Thanks to Mike Cernovich, I now can answer that question.
First, a recap of the situation. Team Trump raised questions about the health of Hillary because Trump was holding large rallies daily while Hillary attended a few small gatherings with rich people to solicit bribes in the form of campaign donations.
The media went into overdrive to defend her.
The headline on CNN news story on August 22, 2016 pretended it was a fact that she was in good health: The new birthers: Debunking the Hillary Clinton health conspiracy.
NPR too pretended this was just a conspiracy theory: Trump Adds Fuel To Conspiracy Theories Questioning Clinton's Health.
How dare you knaves question the health of the queen?
Then she collapsed, and The Donald dropped the subject.
Cernovich, an independent journalist, has debunked many mass media myths -- including the "Virginia gang rape" that now is costing Rolling Stone millions in libel lawsuits after publishing the myth as the truth.
He went on "60 Minutes" and had this exchange with CBS anchor Scott Pelley:
Scott Pelley: You wrote in August a story about Hillary Clinton’s medical condition the headlines said, “Hillary Clinton has Parkinson’s disease. Position confirms.” That’s quite a headline.
Mike Cernovich: Yeah, Dr. Ted Noel had se-sent a story to me anonymously, that I checked out, analyzing her medical condition. And -
Scott Pelley: It isn’t true.
Mike Cernovich: How do you know?
Scott Pelley: Well, she doesn’t seem to have any signs of Parkinson’s disease.
Mike Cernovich: She had a seizure and froze up walking into her motorcade that day caught by a citizen journalist.
Scott Pelley: Did you, well, she had pneumonia. I mean -
Mike Cernovich: How do you know?
Scott Pelley: Well, because that’s what was reported.
Mike Cernovich: By whom? Who told you that?
Scott Pelley: Well, the campaign told us that.
Mike Cernovich: Why would you trust a campaign? Why would you trust the Hillary Clinton flacks?
Scott Pelley: Why would you trust this doctor nobody every heard of?
Mike Cernovich: Why would you trust the doctors that go on CNN? Right because nobody’s every heard of him. And that’s the issue, one of legitimacy and social constructs and social statuses. Dr Ted Noel, board certified physician, he reached an analysis based on logic and reason that could be attacked using logic and reason.The cat is out of the bag.
Cernovich had Pelley and the mass media dead to rights.
The media believed Hillary's campaign when its said she had pneumonia, even though she showed no signs of pneumonia. As Cernovich said later in the interview:
And it was public. Well, okay. He had recovered completely. People wanted his medical records. But then when Hillary Clinton is having you, coughing fits, well it’s allergies. Hillary Clinton seizes up, oh, it’s pneumonia. Right? So that’s what I mean. We’re willing, the confirmation bias says that you’re willing to take the Hillary Clinton campaign on their word. But that kind of benefit of the doubt would not be given to say, Donald Trump. If Donald Trump had some kind of seizure, and he said oh, it’s pneumonia, people would say oh, that’s alternative fact. And people wouldn’t accept that as true.Which was part of Donald Trump's strategy. He ran against the press because the press overwhelmingly supported Hillary. He raised questions about her health. The press went ballistic. She had a seizure,
The press tried to ignore it; none of the crews at the 9/11 event (one of the few that featured both candidates) bothered to follow her as she abruptly left the event.
Her seizure only became news after a citizen, Zdenek Gazda, caught the stiff lifting into the van on his cellphone.
Once that hit Twitter, this became news and even then the press merely repeated her campaign's various spins (first it was the heat, then pneumonia).
Trump proved his point that the media lies.
