We know that there is no love lost between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump and now that they are both in the running for the president’s seat it is getting worse by the day with insults being spewed both ways but Hillary went a bit further when she claimed a coughing fit that took her quite some time to get over during her Labor Day speech was as a result of an allergic reaction…to Trump!
When giving the speech she teased that Trump was the reason behind an allergic reaction that saw her nearly hacking her lungs out for quite a few of the first minutes of her speech. After regaining composure she quipped that the mere thought of Trump causes her to get allergic. She stressed the importance of taking Ohio in the elections with the help of her Vice Presidential nominee, Tim Kaine, during this same speech. She is said to suffer from some health issues but her critics are raising questions about it but she stated that she doesn’t pay any heed to their conspiracy theories.
She started her speech with an uncontrollable choking cough that persisted for a part of the beginning of her speech. She kind of got herself composed after sipping on some water but hardly uttered a whispered sentence about having 63 more days to go before the fit overtook her again. The crowd could see that she was having a hard time and started chanting her name as she fought to recompose herself. Tim Kaine offered no help as he sat behind her, clapping along with the crowd while Hillary braved on.
When all her attempts to get over her cough failed she sucked on a throat lozenge but soon reached for the glass of water again. She eventually pulled herself together enough to finish her speech but during it, at a time critical to her presidential campaign where she was to remark on Trump’s Mexico trip her voice let her down once again. She was quoted all over internet publications as saying he is incapable of going to a foreign country without feuding with the country’s president publicly. The fit resurfaced as she was getting into the part about Trump being totally unqualified and temperamentally unfit to be president of the USA and her statement that may have packed a punch was quite watered down as a result of it. After the second coughing fit her voice was obviously strained and raw but she recited her usual list of complaints as they pertain to Trump and repeated a few of the points Kaine made in his remarks too.
