Hillary Clinton tripped over her own words in a telling gaffe in Sunday night’s Democratic debate in Charleston, South Carolina hosted by the Congressional Black Caucus Institute.
“The details really mattle,” Clinton said, flubbing the details of her sentence at approximately 9:30 PM Eastern.
Clinton got off to a slow start in the South Carolina debate, allowing Martin O’Malley to bludgeon her on her gun control record and for Sanders to hit her on health care.
Breitbart News led the coverage of Clinton’s slowness during the last Democratic debate in New Hampshire in coming back from the women’s restroom during a commercial break. That slowness may have been a flare-up of her post-concussion problems, which have continued to dog her, according to law enforcement sources close to Clinton.
Clinton is still taking a blood thinner medication and daily thyroid pills following her concussion in 2012. She has a medical condition called hypothyroidism, commonly caused by an underactive thyroid, which could diminish her energy levels.
Additionally, journalist and author Ed Klein wrote about some details of her health for Breitbart News.
“To this day, Hillary still suffers from many of the troubling symptoms that I wrote about in Unlikeable: blinding headaches, exhaustion, insomnia, and a tremor in her hands. As a precaution against the spectacle of fainting in public, which could easily doom her candidacy, Hillary now travels with a personal physician on all her major campaign trips,” Klein wrote.
“Tension headaches continue to plague her and often make it hard for her to maintain her grueling schedule. Her closest aide, Huma Abedin, confessed in an e-mail that Hillary is easily “confused”; Huma frequently orders campaign aides to alter Hillary’s schedule at the last moment so the candidate can catch her breath and take out time for naps,” Klein wrote.
Clinton is in a deep nose dive in the polls, especially among white voters, and with Democrats in Iowa and New Hampshire.
