It's time to talk about the Clinton health issue.
The Bill Clinton health issue, that is.
From the Washington Post, with a North Las Vegas dateline:
Clinton also reported that his wife, who was diagnosed Friday with pneumonia, is on the mend, only he referred to her as having the flu.
“She’s feeling great, and I think she’ll be back out there tomorrow,” Clinton said of his wife, who plans to campaign Thursday in North Carolina. “It’s a crazy time we live in, you know, when people think there’s something unusual about getting the flu. Last time I checked, millions of people were getting it every year.”
When she later returned to her home in Chappaqua, Bill Clinton was already there, having not attended the ceremony.
Campaigning in lieu of his ill wife at the College of Southern Nevada, located several miles north of the Las Vegas strip, Bill Clinton had some other odd things to say:
Speaking in a state that he carried twice but polls suggest is surprisingly tight this year, Clinton framed the election as a choice between a candidate who’s served others her entire life and is offering solid policy proposals and one who is appealing to a sense of “road rage” in the country.
Here's Merriam-Webster's definition of "road rage":
a motorist's uncontrolled anger that is usually provoked by another motorist's irritating act and is expressed in aggressive or violent behavior
That's a strange way to describe an action otherwise known as "voting."
More from Bill in North Las Vegas:
Speaking of Trump’s slogan, “Make America Great Again,” he said he was among those who knows what Trump really means — suggesting it’s a reference to a time when the racial order in the country was different.
“You have to be a certain age, and it helps to be a white Southern man — I know what that means,” he said.
Mmm, Trump is actually from New York, just like Bill and Hillary Clinton after the two moved to Chappaqua in 1999, right before Hillary ran for her Senate seat from that state in 2000.
Then Bill started to ramble:
The former president knocked the media for having spent so much time covering his wife’s use of a private email server while secretary of state, a practice that he said has yielded nothing disqualifying.
Clinton pointed to a string of former Republican administration officials who have endorsed Hillary Clinton, an indication, he said, that there are no significant concerns about the national security implications of her email.
“So would they have endorsed her, no?” he said answering his own question.
My theory is that Bill Clinton is suffering from Italian Food Overdose. The U.K. Daily Mail reported that a deliveryman from the nearby Italian pizza-and-eggplant-parmigiana joint Basilico dropped off a big bag of chow at the Clinton residence on Sunday night. And you can't tell me that Hillary ate all that stuff all by herself.
I suspect that Bill had a few too many spicy meatballs.
