Following Health Scare, Clinton Doctor Releases Her Medical Condition: 'She Is Fit to Serve'
Hillary Clinton's personal physician says the 68-year-old is "fit to serve as president" despite her recent bout with pneumonia.
Dr. Lisa Bardack, a physician in Mt. Kisco, New York, released a statement Wednesday, saying: “My overall impression is that Mrs. Clinton has remained healthy and has not developed new medical conditions this year other than a sinus and ear infection and her recently diagnosed pneumonia. She is recovering well with antibiotics and rest. She continues to remain healthy and fit to serve as President of the United States.”
The doctor also confirmed that Clinton takes medicine for a thyroid condition, as well as blood thinner Coumadin.
On Thursday, Donald Trump's doctor, Harold N. Bornstein, released a letter to The Washington Post detailing the billionaire's own medications, including a statin to lower his cholesterol. He is also described as "overweight."
On Wednesday, Trump appeared on The Dr. Oz Show to discuss his medical assessment. Trump said he weighs 236 pounds, according to audience members who attended the taping Wednesday.
The 70-year-old, who stands at 6 foot 3 inches, admitted to Dr. Oz that he would like to lose "15 to 20 pounds."
After the taping, Trump took potshots at his Clinton's stamina at a rally in Ohio Wednesday night.
He said: “Do you think Hillary would be able to stand up here for an hour and do this?”
He then added: “She's lying in bed getting better and we want her better. We want her on the campaign trail.”
His audience lapped it up. However, earlier in the day, at a church in Flint, Michigan, he began to slam Clinton and was interrupted by the pastor.
"Mr. Trump, I invited you here to thank us for what we've done in Flint, not give a political speech," Reverend Faith Green Timmons of the Bethel United Methodist Church told Trump.
Trump hit back at the reverend on Fox & Friends Thursday morning.
“Something was up because I noticed she was so nervous when she introduced me. She was a nervous mess,” Trump said.
Trump also responded to the leaked emails in which former Secretary of State Colin Powell called him a "national disgrace."
“I was never a fan of Colin Powell,” Trump tweeted Thursday.
