Desperate Spin on Clinton Now Comical: ‘This is a woman who works 20 hours a day’

Twenty hours a day? C’mon, now, even Kim Jong-Un would be embarrassed by such shameless pronouncements. What Grandma’s recent collapse has shown is how pathetic Democrats and their media lackeys are in denial, if anything.

Her supporters now are trying to turn the episode into a badge of honor — and a credential for the White House.

This is a woman who works 20 hours a day and comes into contact with tens of thousands of people and you pick up germs and viruses and things like that and you get exhausted,” said Democratic Gov. Dannel Malloy of Connecticut. “If you don’t get a cold or a virus or the flu or pneumonia in a campaign, you weren’t working hard enough.”

But the incident follows a long pattern, with Clinton paying a price, both physically and politically.

During the waning days of her time as secretary of state, she sustained a concussion in a fainting episode at her home, which her doctor later attributed to dehydration and a stomach virus she developed during a trip to Europe. In follow-up evaluations, Clinton was found to have a blood clot in a vein in the space between her brain and the skull behind her right ear.

To recover, she spent a few days at a hospital and took a month-long absence from the State Department for treatment. Her physician, Dr. Lisa Bardack, said in 2013 that testing showed “complete resolution” of the concussion’s effects.

But the episode became a central part of a political rumor about her health that has only grown more damaging as her presidential campaign has continued. Trump has seized on those concerns, often questioning Clinton’s stamina and energy.

That infuriates Clinton’s friends and former aides, who cite dozens of stories about her simply refusing to take a sick day.

“I am 20 years younger than Hillary Clinton and there is no single day when I outpaced her ever in my life,” said Neera Tanden, a former Clinton policy aide and president of the liberal Center for American Progress. “I’ve always seen her get up earlier and stay up later.”

Yeah, she seems like an objective source.

Tanden recalled a time when Clinton, then a New York senator, refused to cancel a public service announcement she was scheduled to tape with Sesame Street even though she was sick. Her staff had planned to bring their children in to meet Elmo and Clinton didn’t want to disappoint the kids.

“I felt so badly. She had a throaty voice and you could tell she had a bad cough,” said Tanden, who now has a photo of her then 2-year-old daughter with Clinton and Elmo. “But she was like, ‘It’s fine. I just could not live with these kids crying about missing Elmo.'”

Jesus H. Christ, can this get any more shameless?

    Why, Grifter Granny once stayed up all night to make sure she didn’t miss her Special Breakfast! She is also so strong and powerful she had to e-mail one of her lackeys to ask another one of her lackeys to bring her tea.

    Why, she can do anything a MAN can do, except use a fax machine or remember anything about classified information!

    Oh, yes. This is the woman, by her own testimony, that during the Benghazi attacks, left the White House and went home. She says she loss a lot of sleep that night (hmm…loss of sleep vs loss of life). Yet she was extremely late for an early morning briefing at the White House because, according to her own admission, overslept.

    Her aides have reported that Clinton take naps during the day and does not like to be disturbed. This was noted in an email (and there’s probably several more that got deleted) regarding a conference call that was scheduled to happen soon but Clinton was napping. The aide was instructed to remind Clinton of the call when she awakes because she is easily confused.

    Jeez, even Bill Clinton was caught on camera falling asleep during his wife’s nomination speech at the Democratic convention.

    These are people way over their prime. There is no way that Clinton works a reported 20 hour day. It’s impossible for her to be functional on only 4 hours of sleep. When does she shower or brush her teeth? Please, stop the bs and be honest, for once.

    She has worked her whole life in government. That is not hard work.
    The world’s tiniest violin plays misty for granny.

    Sure as shit didn’t look like it last night, when they managed to pry open her sarcophogus and extract her for a few minutes….
