Donna Brazile, ex-interim chair of the Democratic National Committee, discussed Hillary Clinton’s health issues in a new interview with Hugh Hewitt.
Hewitt, who hosts a conservative radio show, asked Brazile on Monday morning if Clinton realized the huge mistake she had made when she called Trump supporters a “basket of deplorables.” Brazile blamed the error on Clinton feeling “under the weather.”
“Well, I thought that night, I was in New York with her, I could tell from her mannerisms just a few minutes before that she was under the weather,” Brazile asserted. “She wasn’t feeling good. Despite that, I think she went ahead and did her very best given the significant headwind that she faced.”
Brazile also addressed Clinton’s collapse at a September 11, 2016 event in New York City, explaining that staffers told Brazile that Clinton wasn’t feeling well but that they wouldn’t get her to a doctor.
“You know, when I was talking to the staff people early that morning, they kept telling me well, she’s overheated. I said you don’t say that. You never say that about a woman being overheated. That’s just sexist jargon. I said what’s wrong with her,” Brazile remembered. “Go get a doctor and make a good analysis. When she came out and smiled and looked at the little girl, I’m like okay, I had hoped that a doctor would have come out with her.”
Brazile said further that the video of Clinton collapsing made her consider whether or not she would have to be replaced with a different candidate.
