Great, Now NBC Is Covering Hillary Clinton’s Health

There is a far-right conspiracy theory that Hillary Clinton is sick and on the verge of dying. Donald Trump and his surrogates have encouraged this baseless idea, which has generally gotten little coverage in the non-insane press because of its baselessness and because the ESTABLISHMENT is in the tank for Big Clinton.

Or is it? On Labor Day, Hillary Clinton coughed for a little bit during a campaign appearance in Ohio, and NBC News wrote an article about it:

The former secretary of state has suffered from coughing fits at times throughout the Democratic presidential primary.

However the frog in Clinton’s throat on Monday was one of the most aggressive she’s had during her 2016 run and left her almost unable to finish her remarks.

It left her “almost unable to finish her remarks,” which is an admirably creative way of saying that she was able to finish her remarks. News!

Of course, now I have written a blog post about a news site writing an article about someone coughing. Blogging!
