Jackie Mason ripped the doctor who gave Hillary Clinton a clean bill of health last year.
The 85-year-old comedian laughed off Dr. Lisa Bardack’s claim last July that Clinton was in “excellent physical condition” — the same doctor who revealed she had pneumonia hours after she stumbled and exited a 9/11 commemoration ceremony early Sunday.
“Well, the way she lies all the time every time she talks she can’t seem to talk without lying,” Mason said during a radio interview recorded before Clinton’s episode Sunday. “So, if she says she has a letter from a doctor the chances are the letter is from a plumber and probably there was no doctor involved and no doctor ever saw her.”
“She knows other liars but I don’t think she knows any doctors. So if the doctor saw her, he would know that she is not only in bad shape physically but mentally she is in ever worse shape.”
“Anybody who can’t talk without lying shouldn’t see a doctor; she should see a psychiatrist,” he added.
“I noticed that the coughing spells come at very strange times depending on what the issue is and what the question is. When she’s ahead in the polls the coughing never showed up.” (RELATED: Clinton Joked About Needing Weed In The Middle Of A Coughing Fit)
“Now all of the sudden as she is slipping lower in the polls, the coughing is getting louder and louder. And it also depends on what the question is. If it’s a very hard question you hear a fantastic cough. The cough never stops. And when the question is a little more pleasant there is likely less coughing. If you give her a compliment she doesn’t cough at all.”
Clinton’s doctor said she was “was put on antibiotics, and advised to rest and modify her schedule.”
“While at this morning’s event, she became overheated and dehydrated,” Bardack said in a statement Sunday. “I have just examined her and she is now re-hydrated and recovering nicely.”
