Hillary Clinton’s campaign headquarters has been hampered by illness —including respiratory infections — sending senior staffers to doctors and hospitals.
News of the widespread illness comes the day after Clinton suffered a “medical episode” and departed a 9/11 memorial service early. As she was leaving, Clinton was propped up by aides and Secret Service agents and even appeared to collapse as she entered a waiting van, according to video captured by a bystander.
“I went to doc last week and took antibiotics,” a senior staffer texted The Post. Asked whether he had pneumonia, the staffer said, “Doc said prob bronchitis. But wasn’t definitive. So maybe.”
The staffer had been coughing for weeks — and said many around him had come down with something severe.
“I was actually sick for a couple of days,” spokesman Brian Fallon told MSNBC Monday. “I think I had the mild form of it.”
Fallon said the sickness was widespread — even touching Clinton’s campaign manager. “But everybody from Robby Mook to several of the senior staff here have been afflicted with something or other for the last few days.”
