Brian Fallon, spokesman for Hillary Clinton’s campaign, could not definitely say whether the former secretary of state lost consciousness at Sunday’s 9/11 memorial service in New York City.
“Let me ask a couple of questions,” MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell posed to Fallon on Monday. “Did [Clinton] ever lose consciousness?
“No, Andrea, I don’t think so,” Fallon responded. “What I think happened — and I have no basis to question the veracity of the footage played — but from those there, I believe she was feeling hot which a lot of the other attendees described also feeling.”
“I saw Chuck Schumer and Congressman Crowley also describe that it was a hot environment with all the people there for the ceremony,” he continued. “She left on her own accord. I think that as she was getting into the vehicle she got a little bit dizzy, and she was helped into the vehicle but immediately upon being seated there she was talking to staff and, like I said, making calls.”
Fallon also stated that Clinton “was up running around in her daughter’s apartment, chasing her grandkids around.”
“Within 90 minutes people saw her on the sidewalk as she exited her daughter’s apartment building.”
