Several media outlets and mainstream reporters reported on Sunday morning that Hillary Clinton left a 9/11 memorial service early due to what was described as a “medical episode.”
FOX News’ Rick Leventhal reported that sources told him that Hillary Clinton was “clearly having some type of medical episode” and had to be helped into her van by protective detail.

Reporters were not initially told about the Democrat presidential nominee’s whereabouts according to White House pool reporters, while the campaign was initially hush:

Nick Merrill, a Clinton spokesperson issued the following statement, as reported by CNN Sunday morning at 11:05 AM ET:
“Secretary Clinton attended the September 11th commemoration ceremony for an hour and 30 minutes this morning to pay her respects. During the ceremony, she felt overheated so she departed and to her daughter’s apartment. She is feeling much better.”
The temperature at 11:00 AM ET in New York City, where the event remembering 9/11 was held was 82 degrees, warm, but hardly a scorcher.
New video has surfaced which shows Hillary Clinton wobbling as she tries to walk just a few feet to get into a van. Just prior to getting to the door, she collapses and appears to fall forward into the van. After sh collapses, someone steps in front of the door to shield what those around her are doing to get her fully into the vehicle.

While September 11, 2016, is the 15-year anniversary of the horrific Islamic terrorist attacks on 9/11/01, it is also the day that the Benghazi terrorist attacks took place on September 11, 2012.
Perhaps Hillary Clinton was overcome with guilt for knowingly lying to the American people and the families of the victims of four dead Americans, blaming the attacks on an obscure YouTube video while attending the Benghazi funerals.
This report will no doubt fuel continued speculation as to Hillary’s health, which is beginning to look like more than just speculation when combined with her endless coughing fits.
However, as one person on Twitter noted, probably the worse thing that could happen to the Donald Trump campaign would be for the scandal-plagued Hillary Clinton to have to leave the race due to health problems. She is arguably the weakest Democrat nominee of all-time and almost any Republican other than Donald Trump would probably be far ahead at this point.
For the memories, here’s Hillary lying to the Benghazi families and the world about the YouTube video triggering the very well-planned attacks in Benghazi.
This story was updated with footage of Hillary Clinton’s difficulty walking and subsequent collapse.
