“All In” with Chris Hayes held quite a discussion Monday night.

In light of the Hillary Clinton pneumonia fiasco, the panel discussion involved Clinton potentially having gas.

It could happen — right?

Hayes’s prolific question: If Clinton has gas should she be expected disclose it?

Discuss among yourselves.

MSNBC analyst and former RNC Chairman Michael Steele was on the show talking with Hayes about the embarrassing issue.

“Severe gastrointestinal distress,” began Hayes. “Does Hillary Clinton owe you the voter and Michael Steele to inform you that she is undergoing severe gastrointestinal distress?”

Stone-faced Steele replied, “She doesn’t owe me that. But pneumonia, you do. Because pneumonia can lead to a lot of other things. Having gas? Uh, not so much. Walking Pneumonia can become severe pneumonia to the point where you’re hospitalized and it has an impact on the body.”

Steele seemed very sure of himself despite having no background in medicine that The Mirror could find in a brief online search. He did participate in his high school’s glee club and earned a degree in International Studies from Johns Hopkins University. He later received a law degree from Georgetown.
