She’s got 99.8% of the media in her pantsuit pocket, but apparently anything less than 100% obedience isn’t good enough for these punks.
Hillary Clinton’s campaign is working the refs hard when it comes to reports about her health.
While Clinton responded to a fit of coughing this week with humor, saying she was “allergic” to GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump, her aides and surrogates played the role of bad cop.
Campaign spokesman Nick Merrill took to task an NBC reporter who wrote about the coughing spell, posting on Twitter that the writer should “get a life.”
There’s be a media meltdown if Trump said that to a reporter.
Clinton aides and supporters see the healthcare stories as a bunch of baloney, and they want the media to cover it as such.
One former Clinton aide called it a “complete farce, and the only way to handle it is to say in no uncertain terms that Donald Trump is full of it.”
The former aide also agreed that the Clinton campaign wants to put pressure on the press.
“I think that the fact that any mainstream publications would do anything but make this is a story about Donald Trump is completely out of the mainstream and why these claims have gotten worse,” the former aide said. “Some reporters have taken these claims at face value, and it’s the reason this story is still out there.”
Those around the Clinton campaign insist Clinton World isn’t worried that the health stories will damage her White House bid, though the latest pushback comes as polls of the race have tightened.
“The fact of the matter is there is no truth or factual evidence to debunk,” the former aide said. “She is perfectly healthy. The only way is to challenge him to a pushup contest at the first debate.”
Yeah, no evidence at all she’s in poor health:
