Hillary Clinton's doctor: "She is a normal human being at this point"

"The Internet is awash with rumors about Hillary Clinton's health, but there is one medical condition she is actually known to have."
That is hypothyroidism, a condition affecting about 10 million Americans in which the thyroid is underactive, resulting in a variety of symptoms including fatigue, weakness and weight gain.

For most patients, the symptoms can be significantly reduced or eliminated with the use of hormone therapy. Clinton is being treated with a medication called Armour Thyroid, according to her doctor, who has issued a letter saying she's in "excellent" physical condition and is fit to serve as president.

A 1999 study published in the New England Journal of Medicine found that treating patients with both hormones instead of just one may improve their mood and neuropsychological function.

Despite the evidence, Clinton's use of Armour Thyroid has earned her criticism, most recently from celebrity doctor Drew Pinsky. Pinsky, who is an internist as well as an addiction medicine specialist, said last week it's "weird" Clinton is being treated with what he views as an "unconventional" and "outdated" medication.

"It's something we used to use back in the '60s," Pinsky said in KABC-AM's "McIntyre in the Morning." "What is going on with her healthcare? It's bizarre."

Gharib said the way Clinton's hypothyroidism is being treated isn't a cause for concern.
I'm guessing hormone therapy would alter Hillary in some way they consider detrimental to her campaign. Which, in the end, seems more important than her health.

"She is a normal human being at this point" As opposed to being an evil android sent to destroy the world...

A normal human being at this point

At THIS point?? Does that mean at some other point she will not be a normal human being. Or does it mean that at some point in the past she was not normal but is now ....at THIS point?

At this point? For how long until we reach some other point?

Wow. Talk about weasel words.

edutcher said...

It ain't her thyroid.

Thyroid doesn't make one eye cross and it doesn't make you seize.

All the talk is having an effect, though, despite the media's trying to suppress it.

Behold the power of the 'Net.

Bonus laff: Willie thought Hillary is too sickly to run for President.

YMMV

Ah, well, the Wages Of Sin.

AllenS said...

I keep waiting for her to fall over in public.

edutcher said...

If Trump comes at her in the debates (if there are any), you may well get your wish.

AprilApple said...

The hope that she is so bad Trump will win? More delusion.

edutcher said...

Just to ruin somebody's day, new poll has Trump up 2 in FL.

With 1/5 of the black vote.

ricpic said...

She's a normal compulsive liar and thief. And she as much as admits to being a liar and thief. Why else state that The Clinton Foundation will stop taking contributions when she is president? That's an admission that it was a clear conflict of interest for the Foundation to take contributions from favor seekers while she was Sec. State.

AprilApple said...

If there is any justice - all her lying would give her cancer. Is it wrong to hope?

Lem said...

"At this point" I take to mean, if something happens later, don't come after me, I was just saying she was fine at that particular point in time.

She's day to day.

AprilApple said...

It's clear she has issues. I don't think they are as bad as Drudge or Gateway hope. All those pillows? who cares? most people want a pillow behind their back. I know I do.

All the images of her grabbing a chair or a railing.... most everyone does that. It's natural to find a place to rest, or a place to put your hands.

Some of the videos that show what looks like a mini-seizure or instability are more compelling. Not conclusive, however. She is an unattractive aging woman who lies continuously. She probably gets a good botox and an oxygen treatment before any major event/speech. *Bill hasn't schtooped her in years.

Evi L. Bloggerlady said...

I hope that poll ed cites holds true (so ed, apparently not all the polls are biased are they...). If Trump does as well as this poll and the LA Times poll show with African Americans, that does become a game changer in a lot of these battle ground states.

I hope Trump keeps the pressure on Crooked Hillary and Hooked Up Huma and keeps reaching out to minority voters.

Evi L. Bloggerlady said...

AllenS, someone should get her a life alert.

Dust Bunny Queen said...

@ April

How about THIS for unattractive?!

Not only probably the ugliest outfit ever seen on someone who wasn't committed to a mental, to an Alzheimer ward or who is a bag lady on the street that has lost her last bottle of rotgut wine....but really!!! WHO let her dress like this. WHO decides to wear something like this in PUBLIC??????

It looks like a shower curtain thrown over some nasty Salvation Army reject pants. I'm surprised that her shoes are even from the same pair instead of being mismatched. Did she get dressed in the dark??

AprilApple said...

LOL - DBQ. Shower curtain. hahahaa. It's probably a shower curtain from Barneys - with a $10,000 price tag.

in other news - Cher is 100% plastic now.

Amartel said...

"She's a normal human being at this point."
What sort of double-talk failed-deflection bullshit-laden pseudo-medical explanation is this? Sounds like she's transitioning, human to robot, but the final transition is as yet incomplete. Just creates more questions. The truth is like kryptonite to these idiots. Everyone knows she's ill somehow. She's an old lady and she's got some sort of old lady issue(s). If you're a Democrat, it doesn't matter. You cowering, dependent, blinkered swine. You're going to vote for her anyway. The TV has given it's orders and you just have to do what you're told. Plus, it's not like the job of Democrat Chief Executive is actually arduous what with all the czars and advisers and fetch-it fairies and apolotigsts they surround themselves with. Plenty of leisure time as anyone who has paid attention over the past 8 years will tell you. When was the last time you heard the MFM complain about presidential down time? Right. It's been a while. FORE!

It doesn't look quite as heavy (as in wool opposed to cotton) as a lot of people were saying, but she's dressing like that to hide something.

And note how baggy the pants are. Easier to hide the cath.

Remember '08? "You're likable enough, Hillary". Same kind of shot.

Titus said...

LOL DBQ. And she was in Ptown of all places wearing that tent.

Who dresses her? The stuff is so bad. She needs to stick to stuff like she wore at the convention. It was like 90 here that today. Too bad she can't pull of a cute little tanky-which would of been much more appropriate for the place and weather.

Evi L. Bloggerlady said...

Other than Hillary's, I am not sure who's day you are ruining with this. Let's hope it keeps building.

You know damned well who, but my point is FUD works both ways.

Methadras said...

If she is normal at this point, then why does she wear maoist clothing in the middle of summer? Gives stilted speeches and leaves? Why is there a medical man servant next to her 24/7? Frankly, I hope she drops dead and that's the end of it before the election.

"Help, I've fallen and I can't get up. Someone, probably Trump pushed/tripped me!"

Jim in St Louis said...

I do not buy any of the conspiracy health issues about Hillary. She seems in good/fair health for an old lady, and there are doctors who vouch for her.

I hate Hillary for her greed, corruption, carelessness, ineptitude and influence peddling.

I don't hate her for her weird clothing choices, her canckles, her hairdo, or her cackling laughter.

Attacking her health is a trap to make Hillary more sympathetic. Avoid it.

edutcher said...

When you seize the way she has on a couple of occasions, when your left eye crosses repeatedly, something serious is going on.

And nobody on the Left started any kind of defense of her health until it became so obvious something was wrong, it couldn't be hidden anymore. It's no trap.

This is about fitness to govern - if you're old enough, you remember how they went after Reagan continually and it didn't make him an object of sympathy. If, as some say, she's got a form of Parkinson's that will react adversely to any sudden, unexpected stimulus (balloon drop, shouted question), imagine what might happen if Trump comes at her over Benghazi in the middle of the debates

Dust Bunny Queen said...

I get that she is an old lady with, obviously, some major health problems. She is ill and fat. Lumpy and disgusting body....... But that is no excuse for the couch slip cover look (like your grandmother's overstuffed mohair sofa..with cat hair on it too...gross), the Maoist uniform or the crazy bag lady look.

With the money she has available to spend on clothing and stylists it is unfathomable that she dresses in these horrible, frumpy outfits, unspeakable colors, clashing patterns, potato sack tailored outfits. Even Oprah Winfrey at her biggest still dressed stylishly. For God's sake!!!! have some pride in how you look.

The decision making process of someone who would wear this incredibly ugly and inappropriate outfit really makes you wonder about her other mental processes.

Also the ability of anyone to give her any advice. I can just imagine her advisors trying to tacitly tell her she looks like shit.

Evi L. Bloggerlady said...

Jim in St. Louis: That is probably good advice. Whether she is sick or not (I assume something is wrong with her) will play out one way or the other going into these debates (you will see it). We don't want to raise expectations with the public she will suck the debates only to have her show up ready to rumble. It is a distraction from the main issue.

That said, DBQ shower curtain dress photo is priceless.

But for Trump, The real issue is her corrupt crooked crony ways. He should keep hammering her on that.

edutcher said...

It won't matter how she shows up. It will matter if something she doesn't expect happens.

Trump will show up prepared. We can only guess what she will do.

Trooper York said...

It is instructive how people try to prop up the rotting corpse that is Hillary Clinton. "She is not that sick." "She is just an old lady." "Don't talk about her health issues. It is not polite. It is sexist. It is ageist." "Just ignore her health just the way we ignore her emails and violating US Law and the corrupt deals made with the Justice Department."

Trooper York said...

It is the way life long Republicans think you should fight. With one hand behind your back.

Marquis of Romney style.

Titus said...

I agree with DBQ. She is fucking running for president of USA!

I actually think she is dressing worse now than she ever did and she has always been a crappy dresser.

She has also gotten much fatter which doesn't help. I thought people get thinner once they get older?

But still she needs someone to pick out her clothes that knows what they are doing. Put her in touch with Oprah's peeps, or some other famous fatty who dresses decent. Angela Merkel, who is no beauty, dresses appropriately. Hilary dresses like a clown.

Trooper York said...

Trump should push her until she has a stroke right there on the stage. Refuse breaks. Keep talking until she drops dead at the podium.

Titus said...

Could you imagine what she looks like naked?

Titus said...

lol, Troop

AprilApple said...

Trump is Mondale?



Leland said...

Sorry Jim, but I can't agree. I want to, because generally I consider one's health their issue. However, the Clinton's have played this game against others many times in the past. She's the Alinskyte, and therefore, I have no problems using those rules against her. I hate the Alinsky rules, because they cause the discord we currently all see. Still, they work because they are effective, and I'll be damned if I'll let one side use them exclusively.

Bringing up Hillary's health; increases the scrutiny and uncertainty of her as president, makes her live by her rules, ridicules her, is a tactic that her opposition enjoys, and we need to keep this pressure on her.

Besides, her choice of clothing needs to be brought to everyone's attention. Not just because it is gaudy and best used as tenting material; but because most of it costs per item more than the GDP per capita of Mexico ($10,000/year).

AprilApple said...

Titus - she looks like the naked Trump statue - but with saggy breasts.

edutcher said...

She should live so long, but it just shows whose side the Colorado Boobird and her confreres are really on.

Hey, now there's a reason not to vote for her. She just isn't fabulous.

As Zorro, the Gay Blade, once noted, "there is no shame in being poor, only in dressing poorly".

Could you imagine what she looks like naked?

Sydney said...

Armour thyroid is an odd choice. It is not a very reliable preparation at all. The therapeutic levels fluctuate too much. Made from pig thyroid. I believe they crush it and dessicate it to get the hormone. I have some patients who insist on it- they usually are alternative medicine devotees. The standard of care is to use a synthetically made human thyroid hormone. It is more stable and more reliable therapeutically.

edutcher said...

Evi L. Bloggerlady said...

Troop, of course it couldn't be a trap like going after the Kahns? Trump really can't afford anymore fucks ups.

The way to attack her health is do it through surrogates, like Dr. Ben Carson. Then as ed pointed out, have Trump unload supplies to flood victims in 90 degree weather. There are ways to do this without it backfiring on you.

Let Trump attack her on her crooked criminal ways and let others attack her health. If the health is a real issue, it will become apparent. She can't hide forever.

ricpic said...

What if Trump was a falling down drunk? What if Trump had a "terrible health episode" (Bill Clinton's description of something that put Hillary out of commission for six months in 2012)? What if Trump "tired" after the slightest exertion? G-damn MSM is going to carry a corpse over the finish line.

Evi L. Bloggerlady said...

Chip: "I didn't know that colostomy bags came in pairs."

Maybe those are her tits, hanging a bit low?

(I had to throw that out there since Titus showed up)

ricpic said...

I think the something in 2012 was that the falling down drunk fell down and concussed. Had to use bottle glasses when they finally got her back on her columns.

ndspinelli said...

Remember, if you want to get dirt on Dem pols like Gary Hart, Edwards, Bubba, it's always the alternative press. She has MS is my guess. Whatever, it is serious. However, these very limited public appearances serve a dual purpose. As we're discussing, to cover a serious illness. But her handlers know the more people see her the more her polls go down. So, laying low keeps her polls up.

ricpic said...

Hey Evi, you said it you own it! ha ha ha ha ha. No blaming that sweetheart Titus.

Funny how anything that puts the Demos at a disadvantage is a trap.

Um, and how much have we heard from the Khan man recently?

Last I heard, he was peddling his "My son was killed in combat" wheeze on Ashley Madison.

Like it or not, the Khan game was shot down before it reached Cindy Sheehan proportions. And the business with the Monmouth poll illustrates they really are phony.

So enough with the FUD and trying to turn him into a Whig. He seems to be doing well enough the Demos are on defense about the emails, the bribes, the black vote, and her health.

But we can't have that, can we?

"The couch slipcover look" is easily explained. She has no aesthetic sense. None at all. Not all that unusual. I mean that's why we have professional dressers. Why doesn't she avail herself of a professional dresser? Most likely her inflated ego.

Trooper York said...

Trump needs to go at her directly about her health. Enough with the nicey nice shit. He can force the issue in real time during the debate. Ask to debate three hours standing up straight through. No stools. No chairs. No bathroom breaks. Let her collapse on stage. If she refuses to debate under those conditions ask why. If she says there is a medical reason ask her to document it. Otherwise insist on balls to the wall debates. Period.

ric, that may be true, but she did do exactly what you advise at the convention.

She can look nice, usually with help, when she wants to.

Troop. as I say, if the 2 seizures we've seen are indicative, all he has to do is hit her with a question or rebuttal she isn't expecting (an interruption, f'rinstance) and she can go off.

Evi L. Bloggerlady said...

ed, you really are as dumb as a bag of bowling balls. The damage that Kahn caused is done, mainly because Trump walked into the trap. We do not have to hear from Kahn again. Trump is trying to reverse that slide in support now.

But there is no point arguing. You know best.

If you think having Trump slam Hillary's health is best, I am sure you can call Ivanka or Ailes and tell them to get Trump going on attack.

ricpic said...

My mood is always anxiety or apathy. The great poet Robinson Jeffers (who no one reads but me) wrote, "...the birds and fishes, living in terror to die in torment - their fate and Man's..."

It's a mystery why the American People chose to give Roosevelt a third term in 1940. He had been a bust in terms of the economy and Willkie was a very appealing guy. I mean there was nothing conservative about Willkie but he was less of a "transformative" socialist than FDR.

Dad Bones said...

I've got a mild case of hypothyroidism which keeps me from doing the more demanding jobs I used to do, and I'll bet I'm in a lot better shape than Hillary. Maybe it won't matter with her. She's already getting away with hiding out half of every week and I wouldn't expect that to change if elected.

Somebody believes that, I'm sure. The Demos wanted to establish him as another Cindy Sheehan, but The Donald didn't let them.

End of story. You want to swear on the RCP average, go right ahead. It's about as real as the stories Trump was trying to find a way to bow out.

That is exactly right. Those are the people that Trump will sway. Not by playing by Mitt Romney's rules. Not by playing with the media's rules. Trump has to speak over their heads to the people. Just the way he did with his reality TV program. Just as he will do in the debates.

Watch and see.

Trooper York said...

Armour thyroid has a very positive effect. Most of my family take it and it does not have any of the side effects so evident in Hillary's doddering colostomy bag life.

Sixty Grit said...

Everyone I know who has a colostomy bag is much thinner than The Colossus of Chappaqua. If your bowel is resectioned, shortened or diverted there is less surface area for you to absorb the blood of the young, er, nutrients. She would look wasted, well, you know what I mean.

Trooper York said...

Conventional wisdom feeds on itself. There are some very bad polls. There are some very good polls. The methodology is all over the place. Over sampling. Under sampling. A poll is just a snap shot in time. Don't you agree? Don't you agree that the lineup against Donald Trump is unprecedented in the history of Presidential elections? Don't you agree that not only the corrupt media and Democratic Party shills are trying to destroy Trump but many Republicans who are in danger of losing their livelihoods are also piling on? Don't you realize that all of those former Bush staffers like Karl Rove and Ric Wilson and Dana Perino are holding a grudge because of what Trump did to Jeb and said about W and his wars in Iraq?

Don't you think there is a long way to go and we are not even at the seventh inning stretch. We still need the fat Irish tenor Nazi guy to sing "America the Beautiful" while an Bald Eagle does a fly by and shits on his head. There is a lot of ball to be played.

Now some uninformed mendacious peeping toms might call that spin. Not reasonable questions. Not a reasonable way to view things. It seems only concern trolling and lunatic conspiracy theories that Trump is throwing the election are not spin.

So take a breath boys. Don't be so upset. Time will tell.

I am quite confident that when it is said and done most sentient beings will reject Hillary Clinton. Just the way her husband does.

Evi L. Bloggerlady said...

Troop, I hope Trump does exactly what you are saying he will do in the debates.

I take the polls with a very big grain of salt. But unlike ed, I know that Trump is behind in some of these critical battleground states and he will need those states to win. Saying that is not me saying it is over.

I do not expect Trump to be Mitt Romney (that is how you lose an election, because Mitt Romney is a loser). I do expect Trump to recognize general elections are different than primaries (that was a painful three weeks while that lesson sunk in, but Trump seems to have figured it out). Roger Ailes is one of the best there is. How Trump deals with Hillary in the debates will probably decide this race.

Evi L. Bloggerlady said...

Polls are snapshots in time (provided they are done right). What I really care about is which direction the trend is going over a period of time. It was going the wrong way for about three weeks. They are starting to go the right way.

AprilApple said...

"I hope Trump...."

Trump needs to end his rallies in red states and park his butt in North Carolina, Florida, PA, and Ohio.

Mississippi? What kind of red state hope is that?

Trooper York said...

To deny the fact that most Americans know Trump from the reality show circuit and have formed their opinion of him from that is something that elitists of all types scoff at all the time. It is outside of their limited experience and challenges their world view.

Mr. and Mrs. Kanye West would in fact be viable candidates. You can laugh all you want. But either one of them could be elected Governor or Senator in California if they wanted too by a wide margin. You might not like it. You might think it is horrible. But it is true.

Both parties will be running more celebrities as candidates because they have built in name recognition and no paper trail. It has happened before. George Stevens. Reagan. Arnold. Jesse Ventura.

It will become the new normal.

Trooper York said...

Evi put his finger right on it. Roger Ailes is all in on the Trump campaign. He is the man behind the throne.

Do you notice how rabid anti-Trumpers like Allah Pundit and the dick Morrissey can't figure out why Trump is not going all crazy since the Breitbart guy is in charge.

The reason is that Ailes is in his ear. The guy that got Nixon elected twice.

All Trump has to do is let Roger play with Ivanka's tits. It's in the bag. The fun bags.

As opposed to E, who quotes Driscoll, the ultimate NeverTrumper.

You really are an ass about all this, but that's what your little friends want you to do.

For the last time, moron, I say it's probably dead even, which is a better place than any other R has been at this stage in a very long time. All the attacks are beginning to sink in now and the Khan game failed. The Beast needs a pad of 8 - 10 points to look good because Trump's message is resonating. Hillary's been tossing baskets of money away while Trump's been sitting on his. This has been the strategy all along.

Can you get all that through your fucking thick head NOW?

You've taken the place of the Colorado Boobird and you're the same kind of Libertarian FUD merchant as she is and the last thing you want is for Hillary to lose.

Trooper York said...

Ed buddy you need to chill. Don't let them see you sweat. I agree with you that things are not as they seem. It will all become clear as the campaign unfolds.

Realize that Trump took a step back to let Hillary email scandal resonate. Of course he was attacked for canceling some events by the usual trolls but Roger Ailes knows what he is doing.

I know it is discouraging to push against the same misinformation all the time but it is better to let it play out. I think we will be very happy with the results when it is all said and done.

Maybe America doesn't hate socialism as much as it loves believing in and seeing and rallying around someone who speaks effectively to its own ability to overcome.

Interesting discussion of where the campaign stands about 10 days before Labor Day from Gateway.

YMMV about his poll data (mine does), but the rest of what he says is easily verified.

Point is, if the race is within the MOE (and I do believe it is), the question is asked, what else does the Beast have to throw at The Donald?

The peeper needs a new cum rag when he stands outsides peoples windows and whacks his bag as he observes other people living their life.

Angela Merkel, who is no beauty, dresses appropriately. Hilary dresses like a clown.

I'm going to have to disagree. Merkel dresses in the human equivalent to the vehicle tarps that you would use to cover a tank. But then, the Germans are dour people.

Americans have to be goofy optimists. For what it's worth, dressing in white at her convention speech was probably a master move.

But WTF do I know? I actually care about the characters and policies and voted for a balding white haired man who might as well have combed what he had with an eggbeater most days.

And then there's this.

I hope you are right ed, but that is probably a guess on your part. There are millions of people poisoned to vote against Trump (rightly or wrongly). The media is certainly doing its best to hurt Trump as much as they can.

But Hillary does seem to have a gift. So we have that to hope for.

The Apprentice averaged about 6 million viewers a week - the same ones over and over. Most Americans have never seen the thing. Hillary will convince more dead people to vote for her than ever saw The Apprentice. People know very little about both of them except what they hear in the media which makes Hillary highly accomplished, competent, and the smartest woman in the world, and makes Trump a caricature of the caricature he plays on TV.

A true miracle of modern science. Sure, there are still a lot of bugs, but a robot you can let loose on your sexual accusers,and then gets you a third term in the White House is pretty damned functional. I'd buy the extended warranty, it's gonna go down at the worst possible time.

bagoh20, that first RNC debate had about 24,000,000 viewers. I suspect the Clinton Trump debates (at least the first one) will get some serious ratings, well over what Trump was drawing in the primaries. The election will be decided there.
