Gee, maybe they shouldn’t have exposed that little girl during the propaganda photo op Sunday.
Members of Hillary Clinton‘s staff had pneumonia before the candidate came down with it, according to a report.
At least half a dozen senior staff in Clinton’s Brooklyn headquarters battled the illness before the Democratic presidential nominee was diagnosed with the virus on Sunday, People reported Monday.
“Everyone’s been sick,” a campaign source told the publication.
The source said pneumonia cases began popping up among Clinton’s staff in late August, two weeks before the former first lady’s diagnosis. Among those affected were campaign aides who travel closely with Clinton.
Campaign manager Robby Mook was among those who were under the weather. Two of Clinton’s top advisers received emergency medical treatment during their illness.
One top adviser was receiving antibiotics for a respiratory infection days before Clinton’s own diagnosis for pneumonia.
Another key staffer was taken by ambulance to the ER, People’s source added, after collapsing from what was discovered as severe dehydration.
Videos emerged Sunday showing Clinton stumbling as she was helped into a black van during a 9/11 memorial ceremony.
Clinton’s doctor said later that evening that the former secretary of State had been diagnosed with pneumonia last Friday.
Dr. Lisa R. Bardack added Clinton is “re-hydrated and recovering nicely” after feeling overheated due to dehydration before the incident.
