The Clintons have an unfortunate habit of going into cover up mode as a reflex. Their default position is to lie. That's why the email mess happened. It's why it keeps getting worse.
The standard menu
of responses is to dismiss the issue as a fringe conspiracy. Then to
minimize each admission. It does appear that Hillary's health issues,
whatever they may be, are following a similar pattern.
long ago, Hillary was insisting that any medical issue were a conspiracy
theory. Then she told the FBI that she was having medical problems. Now
she had a medical episode in public.
The next response is
easy enough to predict. The spin is already in place. And it's
self-defeating. Instead of talking honestly about her health, Hillary
will once again resort to the same denials, dismissals and tin-eared
attempts at humor.
And, unsurprisingly, no one will believe her.
New York City today was hot and humid. But it wasn't that
punishingly hot. Hillary's medical episode may have been natural. But it
also may not have been. The trouble is that the Clintons have lied so
often that by now even their allies don't believe them.
And that leaves them isolated in episodes like this.
Instead of addressing her problems, Hillary Clinton insists on yelling that she's "feeling great".
Is it any wonder that even her voters are rolling their eyes.
